Archaeologist: American churches astronomically aligned

In this news item appear yet more examples of this age-old tradition of astronomically aligning sacred sites, as found within Christianity in particular. The fact that winter-solstice alignments, for instance, are discovered at Christian sites reflects that their architects and builders were well aware of the significance of that date, originally the “birth” of the year’s new sun but observed for over 1,700 years as “Christmas” or the purported birth of Jesus Christ. It is clear that in marking this date and celebrating this holiday, Christians were merely latching onto a very ancient, astrotheological practice shared by numerous cultures worldwide.
