When I was a boy I used to stare up at the clouds and wonder if God was up there. I'm not alone. Every culture known to human history has worshiped some kind of deity.
My favorite Christmas card pictures Genghis Khan, Hitler, Napoleon, and other monarchs and tyrants beneath the words, "History is filled with men who would be gods."
We all have childhood memories of manger scenes, angels, shepherds and Wise Men. Is Christmas like Frosty the Snowman, a nice story that we adults know isn't really true?
