Easter originated from a pagan celebration but, hijacked by Christianity as the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Evidenced abound that the son of Noah called Nimrod, who married a wife called Semiramis and their son, Tammuz created Easter celebration. The festivity was invented following the death of Tammuz as a springtime ritual event. In order for Christianity to dominate, the Christians wisely fixed the resurrection of Jesus Christ celebration on Easter date.
Obviously, it paid off, the event is now celebrated by both Christians, Muslims and Free-thinkers annually. Furthermore, it has been commercialized in every part of the globe. Now, why are Christians not telling us the truth that Easter is another hoax just like Christmas? Literally, there are massive distortions in the world history with religion been one of the most twisted falsehood. Conclusively, make a celebration and paint it with the name of God, everyone will shut up not to incur almighty’s anger. It works and the scam is on in many Churches especially in developing and third world nations, just call the name of God.Your thoughts? Welcome to http://www.provocativedebate.com.

Easter is largely a Christian celebration. The main theme of Easter is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, depicted by the lent period, the Good Friday, Easter Sunday and then Easter Monday. It’s a commemoration of the fact that Jesus arose after 3 days.
Irregardless of the origin or where it was adopted from, it remains largely and dominantly a Christian celebration. This is so because it is even the church that sets the date every year. There is no fixed date, although I’m not fully aware of the date selection process. Happy Easter.

Majority of things/events codified in history are defective. Empirically, as information passed from one source to another, there are bound to be pluses and minuses. Therefore, Easter festivities and celebration was manipulated by wise and crooked men of old. An ultrasound and MRI of history revealed that Easter owned its origin to paganism. A progeny of Noah, his wife and son were credited for inventing Easter. But, the Christians surgically extrapolated into the event and enveloped it. They trumpeted it to the world as the resurrection of Jesus Christ and every Homo Sapiens bipedalist bought into it. I rest my fingers.

Esther festival of the Christian church, celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion. The history of Esther celebration is mixed up with controversy. One view expounded by the venerable Bede in the 8th century, was that is derived from Eostre or Eostrae, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility.
Fixing the date in which the resurrection of Jesus was to be observed and celebrated triggered a major controversy in early Christianity in which an eastern and western position can be distinguished. Christians observed the day of the crucifixion on the same day that Jews celebrated Passover offering which is on the 14th day of the full moon of spring.
Conclusively, the fact that the chosen date by Christians to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ coincides with pegan festival doesn’t make it a pegan celebration. The truth is nobody have the real date on record hence the fixing of a generally accepted date. Therefore, Esther celebration is a genuine Christian festival.

Easter celebration serve a different purpose from a pegan festival, in this regard, no one can replace the other.
