Although it is true that pagan deities have been associated with Sirius Zeitgeist has inaccuracy.
It is not true that all pagan deities are associated with December 25th, let's look at Horus and Osiris, who are said to be born during the EPAGOMENTAL DAYS of the ancient Egyptian Calendar, this is five days added to the 12th month of the calendar, this sounds good until you realize that the Egyptian 12th month was in the Summer as was the start of the year!
It was Emperor Aurelian who ruled between 270-275 hoping to unite all different religions that were in the Roman Empire that made 25th December a date that most inaccurate links need to value, please scroll down link to "RELIGIOUS REFORM":-
The Jews then and now use previous sunset as the start of the day, so i would look at previous sunset on 5th January in Bethlehem. If i was a Wise Man i could follow Sirius from Persia with the method of the Sun setting as Sirius rises to Bethlehem, however i would need to know date of birth before i set out on my journey.
That we don't know year of birth isn't applicable, Sirius rises as Sun sets for many years on 5th January during this era in Bethlehem, only becoming out of synch by precession much later, so don't read anything into the year i picked...it happened every year, astronomy graph on link below:-
I seem to have a problem with the "Egeria" link, you can look her up or she is mentioned on link below mentioning that very early on Christmas was celebrated on 6th January in Jerusalem and Bethlehem:-
i watched it quite some time ago. i found it quite interesting, but i'm a bit skeptical whenever there is a one sided argument for anything. i'll be checking out the other link posted by Rafterman to see what the other side is saying
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
My personal opinion is that the film is a tool for TPTB .... it spreads new age beliefs which are luciferian (common knowledge) so fueling the illuminati/masonic adgenda... one world religion and government...but please investigate my claims yourself. If you look at the conception of the new age movement and its channeled beginings I am sure you will come to the same conclusion... the NWO and the New Age movement are one and the same traceable back to the same women/men
heres a film for you .. its always good to get a balanced view on things... its a bit long and can be hard work at times but it has a few gems in there I'm sure you'll appreciate.
