Mondo Diablo Episode 334: A Christmas History Timeline

This week I read a list of solstice and Christmas events in history, starting with the Newgrange around 2500 BCE: this is apparently not that far from Noah’s Flood, which was in 2304 BC, according to Ken Ham. Considering Stonehenge was supposed to have started around 2800 BCE and added to for another thousand years is quite curious indeed. Seems that Noah’s immediate family must have made their way there quickly and found it intact, so they immediately adopted or redesigned Druidic customs. Meanwhile, a couple more of the Noah family hurried to assume the Xia dynasty in China. They must have gotten to work on making babies rather quickly! It’s a good thing they brought the pandas with them.

Mondo Diablo Episode 331: Santa is a Wildman

Welcome to an all-new Secular Solstice Season 2011! This year has come to a great start, since I did not have to work on Black Friday! How much better could it be? The clips for this show come from an old article in LA weekly by Jeffrey Vallance. It’s lauded by cryptozoologists for some reason, but I think it’s a great article for fans of the pagan origins of Christmas. You can read the article here:

Mondo Diablo Episode 284: Vomit Collector’s Christmas

Welcome to your Atheist Christmas Podcast for the Year of Our Overlords, 2010. This year, I’m looking back at Christmas past. “Your past” you ask? No, long past. Looooong past. Go back, back, back before that cloudy April when some guy who may have been named Jesus but decidedly didn’t perform any miracles and wasn’t born of a virgin and may or may not have been a prophet or a rabbi, and may or may not have been crucified, was born. You’ll see Egyptians lounging about, you’ll see Greek women tearing apart a hapless young man, and you’ll see masters pretending their slaves are “free” for a fortnight. You’ll see yetis and wildmen covered in fur, delivering presents to people in northern Europe and Scandinavia. You’ll see holly, ivy and trees, decorated in festive gold and silver, and blazing fires, while people warm themselves and gorge on meat. You’ll see lascivious displays of cross dressing and public orgy. You’ll marvel as reindeer fly on psychedelic mushrooms, and wonder why you still see those mushrooms on Christmas trees. There is so much to see, and only a month to see it all. So strap in and get ready to be overwhelmed, or, in the case of most of you, underwhelmed. “Seen that, done it.”

My listeners are edumacated.
