Santa and God
It is much more likely that a flying man in a sleigh pulled by deer can deliver presents to all the children than a flying man can create the entire known Universe in 6 days. The distinction is that people will not kill you or send you to hell for not believing the first myth but will for the second.
This violence is necessary to force persuasion onto people with fear because truth cannot validate. Fear is at the heart of all Abrahamic religions because no elucidation of their claims is remotely possible.
The fact that few believe in Santa as real but do believe in gods as real is an amazing anomaly that points to how little mankind has evolved intellectually from their barbaric caveman days of imaginary invention explanations of reality.
Presents and gifts persuade children into believing. Stratagems of stories and threats of violence persuade mankind to believe in gods. But both are equally stratagem of brain washing to create power and control.
We are living in a time that affords us the chance to truly know Truth and Reality. Yet we persist in holding on to a horrific past of forced delusional insanity. Why? Why do we so love to protect our oppressors fighting and killing each other? We speak of love but I see NO evidence of it!
Until mankind can fully appreciate and realize this statement…war will continue.
