Please tell me this is a joke. For the love of all that is holy, please say this is fake 0_0
@SeagullSlayer, don't worry it probably is a joke and if it isn't notice it says "children 5 to 7" a the top.
@Dingleberry, but still. Back when we were "5-7" we knew more than these kids.
@SeagullSlayer, they're kids dude relax they're stupid
@SeagullSlayer, This is a joke. Theres my good deed for the day, now i can go back to being an d***.
@SeagullSlayer, the fractions don't add up to 100 so it is probably fake
@Bro, kids aren't stupid you as*hole! They're fuc*ing KIDS!!
@SeagullSlayer, I think it's Fox News so nope
@SeagullSlayer, of course it's fake, the percentages add up to more than 100 %
@Blacksheep45, they're percentages, not fractions
@doctorwhofangirl, their all individual draws, it's saying 35/100 (35%) don't know Rudolph. Also, 32/100 (32%) think it was discovered on Facebook. It doesn't need to add up to 100/100 (100%) because their all individual draws.
Fu*k the next generation. They think we're stupid? We don't have sh*t on that!!
@Tuba Music Tech, Your username is awesome. (I play tuba)
@Tuba Music Tech, not knowing tradition does not make people stupid. Just a sign of social change.
@Tuba Music Tech, it's not their fault. They are just ignorant kids with parents who need to get a clue
@TBoneD2000, says the guy who's username in trombone
@TBoneD2000, trombone is also good. Playing different instruments is good too.
This makes me want to cry.
@Itachi Uchiha does not cry. Unless killing family.
Actually Jesus wasn't born on Christmas, but it was adopted to Christmas Day. -Random Fact.
@Datshiitcray, pagan winter traditions were more festive than the original Christmas anyway
@SatanicCatP3nis, the reason why Christmas is in December was because the ancient Romans had a special holiday in December called Saturnalia. Saturnalia was the most festive holiday for the Romans, and would usually decorate their homes with greenery. As Christianity eventually took over the Roman Empire, they decided to make Saturnalia the holiday to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. They could have picked any other day, but since people were so used to having a big holiday in December, they made Christmas on/near Saturnalia.
@amidget, Wow. That is truly interesting. Thank you:3
@SatanicCatP3nis, we take a lot of things from the Romans. Their calendar, their architecture, their language, their government, their holidays etc. That's why I really admire them. Latin and history has really helped
@amidget, and who's the dumbass that down voted me?
@WilfredMott, hahaha. Yeah goat slaughtering!
@Android645, and trees and stuff. Or something I don't know. Pagans are weird.
Actually Christmas isn't Jesus birthday
So are you telling me December 25 isn't Simon cowell's birthday? My whole life has been a lie!
Y'all we need to make sure that when we have children we raise them to be smart!
And that covers 133% of kids..
@Nroutt09, the percentages overlap. This isn't a pie chart. If you're going to insult something,
@Nroutt09, make sure you're right
Jesus was born in the late summer, i dont know why we feed the children false information that thats his birthday
@Smithy15493, it's not His real birthday but that is when we celebrate it
@Smithy15493, Actually Jesus' birthday was on April 6th... I was born on April 5th. *so close*
@spacky, it was in September dumbass
We don't call goldfish dumbasses when they don't know what's outside of their bowl, they don't have the capability to understand. We are the same way with God.
Christmas wasn't Jesus's birthday Christians just changed it
Maybe the world should have ended....
I don't even understand how the connection to Simon Cowell was made.
Probably trolls from 4chan
I DONT WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE!!!
So? 90% of adults don't know that it's not actually Jesus's birthday...
160 million Americans could shrink?... Watch out guys.
No downloads! Yet...
Christmas was never about Jesus... December 25th marks the birthday of Mithras, a Roman pagan God.
Everyone born 1990-1999 is still cool. 2000+ no more.
Christmas really has nothing to do with jesus, at least it didnt originally. The bible doesnt say when jesus was born
I thought every one knew me :(
On the top it says kids 5-7. How do they know about Simon Colwell, and are there 5year old on Facebook? .-.
In the bible, quran, and torah it doesn't say that jesus was born on december 25... no one knows the day he was born
Don't be so mad. They're 5 to 7 year olds... They only know what they were taught by their parents. Teachers aren't allowed to explain relegion anymore.
It's all about the generation raising these people
Please tell me this is fake...
I apologize for my generation.... *sigh*
Those percentage add up to 123%. Are the extra 23% aliens?
@Srg421, each bullet was done individually from a total of 100%
@Srg421, the kids 'could have believed more than one thig'
But all those percents equal 123%.
Christmas: the incorrect day of the birth of a fictional person, who was made up around 2000 years ago.
@zenyl, actually Jesus was real. There's just no scientific evidence of the whole "son of god" thing
@WilfredMott, what evidence? The well-known paintings and such were made around 300-500 years ago. If there were actual evidence for his existance, then give me an actual example, instead of an empty statement.
@zenyl, the roman records of the execution of the man named Jesus, who was crucified for sedition. The Jewish records of a hermitic named Jesus who started the Christian uprising.
@zenyl, Josephus' letters to be specific. He was a Jew (not sympathetic to Christians at all) who spoke of Jesus. Not very kindly
@WilfredMott, *heritic. Darn my thumbs
But.....bu.....how the... I'm going to go or on a limb here and say this was on fox.
@Trolling is a art, Nice grammar in your name.
@Trolling is a art, It says Good Day Chicago on the little bar at the bottom.
@I changed my name, nice grammar in his comment too
@I changed my name, that's kind of the point....
@Trolling is a art, no it was CNN jackass
Jesus Christ, Rudolph and the Three Wisemen don't exist, so it is good that so many children are ignorant of the lies we tell them. Simon Cowell does exist, so by attributing a birthdate to him (albeit wrong), children are demonstrating rudimentary understanding of space-time continuum. The future is looking up.
@ronpopeil, God does exist, and so does His son, Jesus Christ. Personally it's the only reason I celebrate Christmas, because it marks the birth (I'm aware it probably isn't the correct date) of our Savior. I'm not trying to argue at all, I'm just saying what I believe as you have. :)
@Green listerine, I don't believe in anything that I haven't seen
@Djayy, the more comments I see from you the more relieved I am, I feel less and less insulted, knowing you apparently hate everyone.
@Green listerine, Personally I go the opposite direction. The only reason I celebrate is for a chance to have fun with family and friends.
@Tech Guy, and there's nothing wrong with that at all, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and motives :)
@ronpopeil, Jesus was real. There are roman records of a man named Jesus (the Aramaic translation of course) who was executed for sedition. Jesus was real. His miracles and divinity are not proven, but his existence is.
@Green listerine, give me irrefutable proof that God exists (or more scientifically, disprove the alternate hypothesis that he does not exist), and I will accept that he does exist. Once you have done so, thoroughly disprove the existence of all the other possible gods (Zeus, Odin, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc.), and I will entertain a monotheistic viewpoint. However until you done so, I will continue to act in the most rational manner and not buy into your delusion regarding imaginary friends. "We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one God further." - Richard Dawkins
@WilfredMott, I realize Jesus was and is real. I have been to Mexico. I am not arguing that no man named Jesus ever existed during human history. That would be completely ridiculous. I am arguing that no man named Jess who fulfills the description presented in the Bible existed.
@ronpopeil, a man crucified for sedition against the Roman Empire doesn't roughly fit the description of the bible? How about the Jew who started the Christian heresy, splitting Judaism in two? No? Nothing like "Jesus Christ" of the bible? There's no proof that the man was divine, or anything, but he was undeniably real, and if Jesus was just a man, he kept a very impressive lie going on for a long time. Pretty cool, for a carpenter's son.
@ronpopeil, if you're looking for a religious argument, you wont get one from me. Try Facebook instead
@WilfredMott, you fail to grasp the point of my argument. I am agreeing with you that Jesus was most likely real, but not that he was the divine son of God. Maybe I was not clear when I said "fulfills the description presented in the Bible." I was referring in that case to his divination and the miracles he performed.
@Green listerine, Ah another apathetic theist who can't be bothered to explain why you believe what you believe, most likely because you have not even asked yourself that question. Apathy and ignorance will be the downfall of modern humanity.
@ronpopeil, apathetic? More like exhausted with arrogance and hubris like yours. You give atheists a bad name with your childish bullying. You assume that atheism makes you superior because you don't believe in something you cannot see. Yet, you make the same mistake as Christians by insisting something is true without real evidence. Lack of evidence for is not evidence against, yet you say that Christian beliefs are "myth", affirming that they are possibilities? Who is a larger fool? The Christians who admit that what they believe is based on faith alone, or the pompous fools like you who pretend to have evidence for something that can never be proven, and condescend upon people without provocation? No one wanted your atheistic opinion on this. You just harassed this community to show off how smart you think you are. No one wanted my agnostic opinion, I just wanted to show off what a fool you are. Leave these people alone.
@WilfredMott, I have never claimed to have evidence that God does not exist; the burden of proof is on theists to provide evidence that God does exist. Furthermore, my viewpoint does not even require evidence. The argument simply stands; if no
@WilfredMott, evidence exists demonstrating the existence of flying pigs, then people will (and do) deny the existence of flying pigs. No evidence of God exists, so a belief in God is illogical and irrational. Given the thoroughly adequate explanations for natural phenomena, such as life, that formerly were explained by theology, I see no reason to believe in God, despite not having evidence of his non-existence. Green listerine made his choice to have this debate when he outright stated that God exists. I merely requested evidence or an explanation of why he thinks that. I fail to see how that warrants apathy from him and condemnation from you. As well, my atheism does not lead to my intellectual superiority. My intellectual superiority lead to my atheism.
@ronpopeil, you're perhaps the most arrogant person I've ever met.. I've witnessed and been part of miracles that could not have happened without the help of God. I've seen people on their death bed, sick as can be, walk out of that room after someone with the Melchizedek priesthood gave them a blessing in the name of Jesus Christ. I've had answers to my prayers, I've had trails of my own faith and have questioned everything I believe in. Who are you to tell me my experiences in life are some myth? What, are you going to tell me that my prayers have never been answered? Perhaps with your intellectual superiority you might understand that. Or then again, maybe not. You think because I have faith that I am a fool, because I believe in what I cannot see.. And if that's what you think, good for you. You don't sound smart at all, you sound arrogant. I never said I wanted a debate, all I stated was my opinion about God and Christmas, and then you come in with insults. That's... Pathetic
@Green listerine, Yes. I did come in with insults. And they caused you to break your word. That gives me power over you. However, I don't believe you are a fool. I believe you are hallucinating and may want to see a psychiatrist about it. Observing "miracles" is not reason enough to believe in God. Rather, you should seek out more parsimonious explanations for the events you claim to have observed. When you do that, you may discover that divine intervention is not the most likely explanation. And yes, I highly doubt your prayers have been answered, but telling that to someone who is obviously delusional is akin to explaining evolution to a sponge. It's great that you feel free to express your opinion, albeit wrong, but you opened this debate when you decided to do so in response to my comment. Now provide my with some actual proof about the existence of God, and I might concede.
@ronpopeil, power over me? Are you high? Of course you have no other response to any of that other than saying I was hallucinating. Why don't you tell that to the person who got up for them self? And the theory of evolution only supports the theory I believe of God making the universe. Read the bible. He says we are made from the dust, not out of nothing. The time frame of the earths development until it could sustain life also matches that of Gods week he created light, the oceans, etc. His time is estimated to be one day for our million years. The glory of God is intelligence. Scientists have put this theory to the test, of putting "matter" into a box and seeing if some sort of life form would eventually evolve. (I can't remember the two people's names) Over time hardly anything grew but that was enough to support the Big Bang theory. The only trick was, nothing happened until they conducted electricity through the box. Lets say the only person there pre-big bang was God...
@ronpopeil, ..since He knows how everything works, He would know how to create a molecular reaction between whatever matter there was to create the Big Bang. And ta da, the rest is inaccurate history. Of course this is only a theory, but then again... So is yours. You can't disprove the miracles I've witnessed. (I don't do drugs so I'm not hallucinating) and I can't literally prove the existence of any higher being. But hey, don't act like I've never questioned it myself. Maybe that's why I believe it so much more.
You people are stupid. It's 36 out of 100 so 74% of kids know Christmas marks Christ birth, not all the numbers added together. I worry for the future..
@prestidigitonium, your numbers also fail to add up; 36% + 74% = 110%.
Yeah because Simon is a happy guy who probably loves kids.
I was going to make a joke at Chicago
Where's the Connecticut shooter when you need hi- *SLAP* "NO!"
@Professor Cornflakes, that's just messed up.
@Itachi Uchiha, I know. I already regret saying it. At least I got slapped.
@Itachi Uchiha, I actually thumbs downed myself :/
@Professor Cornflakes, attention whore...
@Djayy, your logic is faulty. I regretted it before I even saw his comment. I really do feel like some sort if sicko. Buuuut since my comment was that bad I won't downvote yours. Now can we both continue our day?
@Professor Cornflakes, You're Sick
@Yamisilaas , ok.
I'm glad to see they aren't being brainwashed by religion
It's not that the kids are stupid, it's probably also that it equals up to 122%... Let us all have a moment of silence for the stupidity of our future.
@Henoglonomo, honestly? You're just so wrong, and I'm not even going to say why. Look at the picture for 5 seconds/read the comments for 5 seconds and you'll know why you are so horribly failing not to be stupid while calling something else stupid
That makes 123%...?
@Ninjanarwhal, a child can fall into more than one category, making it more than 100% :)
A) That is good because Jesus Christ doesn't exist and never has
You geniuses all missed the point here. The math doesn't add up! Its more than 120% What the fu*k !
@Daduck, holy sh*t, how many times do we have to cover this?!
Is no one also a little concerned that the percentages add up to 123% ... I'm calling this a fake
@Brandonu22, you are part of society's problem. You think you know something but you are too lazy to even check wether or not you are right before you make a stupid comment.
@you are wrong, he is wrong! I'm not wrong
Who is Simon Cowell?
Everyone born after 2000 should just die in a hole
Wow. That doesn't add up.
It adds up to 123%....
Anyone else see that the number is bigger than 100
I was scared then i saw from kids 5 to 7.
But Jesus was born on Christmas so that question was stupid
Are you idiots blind? It says children 5-7.
I can't wait to watch this world crumble into debris and flames. It sure will put my conscience at ease.
God damn it America
Children 5 to 7 guys. Calm down.
*children 5 to 7 -__-
I wonder who thought of the Simon Cowel question obviously he was unbelievably high
Wait Christmas ISN'T simon cowell's birthday?
It doesn't add up to 100 -_-
Good Day Chicago
We dont know who they asked or how many and more athiests I guess I just can't handle the truth
About 90% of people don't realize that Jesus was not a white man.
Come on guys, they're five year olds, when I was five I believed in faries
I don't want to live on this planet anymore..... But they're only like 5-7 year olds.
I feel like it's fake because I don't think that there is that many kids that know who Simon Cowell is
F*ck it, I'm going to Mars, anyone else want to come?
You know it's Fox wen the numbers are 123%
Uhh jesus wasn't born on Christmas he was born in august.
123% of kids are idiots...
Says Chicago on bottom, 5 stars
What, just no. Does anyone have a noose I can borrow?
OH GOD BHLEGLGELG (barf)
Fun fact: Scientists have most accurately calculated Jesus' birthday to September 11th. :)
The stupid, it burns!
I think i the only smart one of my generation
That adds up to over 100% so apparently over 100% of little kids are stupid....
But Jesus was not actually born on Christmas, Christmas is this time of year because of the winter solstice because to cheer kids up hundreds of years ago Northern Europeans. Would celebrate festivals to cheer kids up due to the very short cold dark days
I was watching Super Size Me and all of the kids knew who Ronald McDonald was but none of them knew who Jesus was o_o
That's 123% of children aged 5-7
The grammar is not even correct!
160 million Americans could shrink! Oh no!
Did non of you even check the percentage? It adds up to 123%
I don't want to live on this planet anymore.....
Where's the professor meme? "I don't want to live in this world anymore"
And remember 67% of statistics are made up on the spot
For the love of Simon Cowell...
Guys.. It says children 5-7... And it's still probably fake...
133%...I mean..Yolo...I guess, right? Yolo? Yeah...no..Yolo...
STUCKPIXEL delete this if Jesus finds it he's going to really end the world
I was so pissed at this until I saw "children 5 to 7"
My cousin asked my aunt who Jesus Christ was, because he knew who Jesus was, but he never heard of Jesus Christ.
Children that are 5-7 will believe anything they read, so it is very easy to introduce bias through question wording. The survey was probably conducted poorly.
I'm guessing this was on Fox?? Probably part of the 'war on christmas'. For christ sake, how is Bill O'Rielly still allowed on national television?
Aaand faith in humanity is lost again..... -.-
You're spending time with friends and family. Do the details matter that much?
Survey by fox news-_-
Actually, Christmas is older than Jesus
5-7 year olds don't even know what Facebook is
Adding to what I said earlier,not everyone celebrates Christmas and teaches their young child about it.
Christmas actually denotes winter solstice and was merged with christianity to appease the germanic peoples in norther europe.
Santas not real
123%, seems legit
I'm sitting in the same room as a little kid I completely changed my opinion as stated in my last comment
I'm sitting in the same roo
Children between the ages of 5 and 7 barley have basic motor skills,calm down
Well back on the crapper I was reading some of these comments and I've decided to clear something up. The pagens had a huge holiday in December. The Romans converted everyone in their power to Christianity and did not want pagen holidays to be celebrated. They couldn't just get rid of these holidays, so they rebranded them as Christian holidays. That's the true story of Christmas, Easter, and probably some other holidays too. FLYWOLFPACK AWAY!!!!!!!
@Flywolfpack, after the first five words it was hard to take your comment seriously.
@Professor Cornflakes, Doesn't mean he isn't right.
Relax, 30% wrong still counts as passing. You can't exactly depend on 5-7 year olds to know much about some thing that only happens once a year. They probably only remember a few Christmases they've been through. On a slightly unrelated note, Christmas actually use to be a pagen holiday before the Romans Christianized everything. Now that this dumb news report is all cleared up, I will proudly flush my toilet and get back to my computer. FLYWOLFPACK AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!
This makes me want to jump off a building.
How many idiots are going to say 123%? It's 133%
Christmas isn't actually Jesus's birthday. It's just the day we celebrate it. As for Easter, that is the day Jesus was resurrected.
I'm not even Christian and when I was that I know I wasn't that stupid.
I don't think 20% of kids know who Simon Cowell is
Simon Cowell's birthday? Really?
Ok so kids these days are retarded!!!! But a lot of blame had to be given to parents!!!
Excuse me. I need to go kill myself
This makes me afraid of what the people of the upcoming generations will be like
oh god this is in my area :O
@awkward silence, *awkward silence*
Wouldnt it kind of be the parents' fault?
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
That's why they need to stop believing everything that they read on the internet!
... I don't even know what to say
I don't believe these facts to be accurate.
This can't be real
Remember: the children eefelct their parents!
This is just depressing.
This world is going to sh*t
I could understand everything else except Rudolph! Who dafuq does not know Rudolph!?!
I highly regret saying that. I feel like a sicko.
160 million Americans could shrink?...
