It seems to me that Larry wants to vigorously defend religion and draw absurd correlation's to defend his points of attack. I have no problem with fairy's and the like but I prefer they be considered what they are - fantasy notions of the Human mind. It's when people actually believe a fat jolly guy exists is where the problem occurs for me. Unfortunately early indoctrination which purports superstition as being real can help in laying the ground work for continuing into other falsehoods down the road in life. Again I have no problem with Santa, just tell children it is make-believe fun for that time of year and I think they would enjoy it just as much. As for the religious persuasion I don't feel that is healthy to the mind in any form. Just my two cents
