God Is Santa

Started Jan 14, 2010 0 Replies

I like to treat the Christian god as Santa Claus. I live in the USA so I don't have enough exposure to other gods to form much of an opinion on their non-existence. But living in the U.S., I have had…Continue

God Is Santa

I like to treat the Christian god as Santa Claus. I live in the USA so I don't have enough exposure to other gods to form much of an opinion on their non-existence. But living in the U.S., I have had plenty of exposure to Santa. We all know that the main thing these two kindly fellows have in common is a problem with reality.I encourage my young children (7 and 9 and cuter than any chilluns' ever) to believe in Santa. It's fun, doesn't do them any harm and is part of the American cultural…See More

I'm here to tell you to get over it.

Hello
That's a good sound blog you have just written. Well done.
Welcome to this great international site and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is,
and that gods are only fictions inside brains cluttered with the stupidities of 'faith'.
