Subject: RE: BS: How do u celebrate midwinter godlessly?
The solstice is the result of the planet's axis being slightly out of alignment with its orbit (and the spin has a bit of a wobble, too). However, it's unlikely we would have evolved without these eccentricities to stir the pot!

So here's bit of theology that has some appeal: We owe our existence to a bit of shoddy workmanship on the part of the Great Clockmaker! Definitely something worth celebrating!
