Do You Believe in Santa Claus?

by Kari Glover

Probably not...
There are many reasons for not believing in this jolly fat man:
* There are certainly more plausible explanations of how those presents got under the tree.
* It is unlikely that one being could visit every child's home in a single night.
* Nobody has ever seen his dwellings.
* There is a reasonable amount of evidence disproving his existence.

However, at one time you probably did believe in Santa...
Reasons for believing in him may have been:
* People told you he was real.
* All your friends thought he was real.
* There were books written about his life.
* Your parents said if you didn't believe in him you wouldn't get any presents.
* You never bothered to think about other ways those presents could have appeared under the tree.

But eventually you realized the truth about Santa and you may even feel silly for ever believing in him at all.

Do You Believe in the Christian God? If you are Christian, probably so...
There are many reasons for believing in this mysterious fellow:


* People tell you he is real.
* All the members of your church believe he is real.
* There are books written about the life of Jesus.
* The bible says if you don't believe in him you won't go to Heaven.
* You never bother to think about other ways humans could have come about.

BUT!!

* There are certainly more plausible explanations of how humans came to be.
* It is unlikely that one being could have created the entire Earth in a single week.
* No sane person has ever seen a Heaven or a Hell.
* There is a reasonable amount of evidence disproving his existence.
