My story was pretty simple

My story was pretty simple
I was actually around 9-years-old when it first hit me. I was kind of like Lisa Simpson growing up. I was pretty smart for my age and a total science nerd. And it was also due to my parents teaching me to think for myself and analyze everything objectively. Tongue Up until the moment it happened I believed that a God probably existed because most adults seemed convinced. But then one day I was watching a video of some religious person ranting about how God is watching everything we do and that was when I had a startling thought.... Jesus (or Gods in general) is Santa Claus for adults.

Jawdrop

And the more I thought about it the more convinced I became that it was all just a lie created so that people would behave a certain way.

* Jesus is always watching you. Santa is always watching you.

* Jesus will reward (with heaven) you if you are good. Santa will reward (gifts) you if are good.

* Jesus will punish (hell) you if you are bad. Santa will punish (no gifts and maybe coal in your stocking) you if you are bad.

* Some people think Jesus exists even though no one has ever seen him. Some people think Santa exists even though no one has ever seen him.

* People always talk about how Jesus and Santa are coming back to town sometime soon. Tongue

This was all quite disturbing to me at that age. I had known Santa wasn't real for a long time so I was wondering how so many adults had been tricked into believing this stuff. And then I made the mistake of actually reading the bible and things took a turn for the worse once I discovered some of the things in the book that so many adults worship..... lol

Analyzing objectively? That's gotta hurt the brain. What's it like? Smile
Please give me a home where cloud buffalo roam
Where the dear and the strangers can play
Where sometimes is heard a discouraging word
But the skies are not stormy all day

I just spotted a pattern:

Easter Bunny? No.
Tooth Fairy? No.
Santa? No.
God? Gee - let me guess.

But the thing is that we all know that we'll see Santa again near the end of the year. Jesus? Hasn't been seen for 2000 years.
Christian apologetics is the art of rolling a dog turd in sugar and selling it as a donut.

There's a clause... every government is fully aware of it.
Santa only comes out when capitalism dies off.... as long as there is capitalism, santa is not required, so he can just stuff himself full of cookies and milk.
