Pagans didn't "invent"

Pagans didn't "invent" naturally occurring phenomena like fall, winter, and spring. "Oh look, people who plant and harvest their crops at the same time every year and note the same days" must all be from the same religion is a "stupid" observation. Those aren't religiously chosen days, they are NATURALLY OCCURRING.

Also, Dec 25th is not the winter solstice. And in 1200ad, this wasn't Christmas, it was the feast of adam and eve.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
