Rational Christmas cards
Here's a great idea for rational Christmas cards this silly season. On the cover you read:
On December 25th, a Savior was born. He revealed eternal Truth, bringing Joy to millions. He astonished the world with His command over Nature. He changed history forever.
And on the inside:
Happy Birthday, Sir Isaac Newton. December 25, 1642 - March 20, 1726
Card-maker John Powers, an Objectivist graphic designer, reckons we should celebrate reason and science on December 25th, instead of the same old bearded mystic!
I like to send Christmas cards, but as an atheist, I have had to limit
myself to the hundreds of bland cards that neutrally say "Happy Holidays." I
decided that if it's okay for (almost) everyone else to stamp, seal, and
deliver their philosophy to me every Christmas, I'll do just the same.
Sir Isaac Newton's ideas helped to rescue mankind from drudgery and propel
it into the space age. I am a lover of reason, and I love it unashamedly,
and I want my friends to know it too. They will this Christmas. Yours can,
