Q: Does our annual Thanksgiving holiday come from the Bible? If so, did the people in Bible times celebrate it when we do today? I’ve always been curious about this. — K.J.
A: No. Your knowledge of both the bible and American history is atrocious. Based on your question, I would guess there is much in the bible that you are not familiar with. If you carefully read the bible with an open mind, you will find that it is full of errors, inconsistencies, and absurdities. If you also read about the history of the bible (both the Old Testament and New Testament), you will see there is even more reason to doubt it’s veracity. After realizing this, many rational people come to the conclusion that stories in the bible are either myth or legend, and are not to be taken as true.
I would also urge you to read about American and world history. You can start by reading about the history of the American Thanksgiving. Then you should go to your local public library and read some books about American and world history.
