So...what am I? A strudel?

That's just mean.

And god brings fire, destruction, and harsh judgement. Santa only leaves a lump of coal how weak is that...

Okay. Using the same types of sources, define what makes God more real than Santa.
1/17/2007 1:18:55 PM
God is the one in the red suit, right? I get them mixed up.
1/17/2007 1:44:12 PM
So... if that's the only difference... then God is Santa?

Santa's a better class of non existant being . . .

Not fundie, I think.

No, the difference is that Santa isn't a sadistic asshole who tortures those who displease him for all eternity. He just gives them a lump of worthless carbon instead of cool free swag.

Um, no. Sorry.

If you're not a good person, Santa won't give you any presents.
If you don't obey his laws, God lets you burn for all eternity.

I used to find presents under the tree each year - evidence for Santa Claus.
I used to find chocolate eggs each year - evidence for the Easter Bunny.
I found money under my pillow when I lost a baby tooth - evidence for the Tooth Fairy.
God gave me fuck-all.

So where did I get my new puppy? You mean Santa isn't real? *sad face*

- Historical figure, lived from ca. 270 AD to 343 AD. Real.
- Deity. Not a historical figure. Arguably not real.
- Fictional character based on Saint Nicholas. Travels the world in one night, giving presents to the good boys and girls and coal to the bad boys and girls. Despite claims that he knows who's been bad or good, school bullies and bigots still get presents.
- Supposedly omnipotent, omniscient being. Supposedly loves everyone. Supposedly condemns those who don't believe in him - or believe in the wrong version of him - to an eternity of suffering.
This isn't even close. The difference between God and Santa is that Santa is based on a historical figure who was actually

Of course Santa's real! If not, who left me all those presents when I was a kid?
8/11/2007 11:15:51 AM
My thoughts have been well expressed by others...
Santa is more real than god.

No you guys, you're all wrong.
Santa worked alongside God to create coal deposits. No dinosaurs, so Santa put them there. He gives out coal to hint at his handiwork.
And God gives out brimstone.

There is an kindly old man with magical powers and a white beard who lives at the top of the world and sees everything I do and promises great reward if I behave in a kindly and generous manner. And it ain't fucking Gawd.
The difference between God and Santa is that I held onto my belief in Santa three times longer then my belief in God.

Wrong. The real difference is that Santa gives gifts to good kids while God slaughters them.
Unfortunately, Santa is fake.
Now, here's the good news: God is also fake.

Prove to me that Santa is indeed not real. Now replace the word "Santa" in your proof with "god". Now be ashamed of yourself for needing instructions for something so simple.

I think this Santa guy sounds a bit more reasonable.
