  2. This is disgraceful.

    We have three wise men as witnesses, a virgin mother and God dressed up as a Ghost and a baby in a crib.

    How much more proof do they need for Gods (er) sake.

    Erm re the witnesses.

    Depending on which version you read (Matthew or Luke), there were three gifts and a number of magi/kings/wise men. There were not however 3 magi/kings/wisemen.

    Sorry to spoil xmas for you.

    To crib shamelessly from a comment on this the BBC's website a few years back, if we start teaching Intelligent Design in science classes then we have to give equal time to all of the world's other religions and theories as to how we all got here - in that equal credence kind of way.

    Personally, I'm going to start campaigning on behalf of Aboriginal dreamtime.

    But no doubt the Jedis and Druids'll be along to **** it up for all of us before you know it... bloody stick-waving, tattooed-covered ******* that they are.

  6. I agree, the government shouldn't be paying for schools to teach this rubbish, if people care about it so much then should have no problem finding the funds themselves.

    These should be covered in RE not science.

    Science classes should only teach science, and should make sure children understand the scientific method. .. render unto Caesar!

    Bloody stupid question. Of course not. He was too busy helping God to put reservoirs of oil underground in anticipation of us inventing (with a higher being's guidance, natch) the internal combustion engine.

  9. You didn't spoil anything for me I don't need an excuse to get drunk.

    However you cant PROVE that there were not 3 wise men, so I will call them Phuoc, Loc and Tho. And here's a picture of them so they must be true.

  11. They've always taught the Creationist theory in schools, it's called RE/RI.

    Thanks for that.

    Not sure how that'll play with the true believers though.
  13. There were four wise monkeys. Who could speak and give gifts.

    Hear no Evil on his donkey

    See no Evil on his camel

    Speak no evil on foot

    And Evilcan Evil on his motorbike.

    Blame my grandchildren ... primary school.

  14. When I was at school there was a Christmas carol going round that went something like:

    We three kings of orient are
    one in a taxi, one in a car
    One on a scooter blowing the hooter
    One with a fat cigar.

    Er, that's four. Well, it was a Yorkshire socialist school. Komrad.
  15. The version we had was;

    We three kings of orient are
    one in a taxi, one in a car
    One on a scooter blowing the hooter
    smoking a fat cigar.
