I'm a big fan of this breakdown on Santa. I appreciated the idea behind Santa as a child, but this letter from a child's parents just smashes the nail on the head for me. I dislike the idea of "robbing" the magic of Christmas from my children with "the truth", but with a message like this I don't feel as though I have to anymore. Awesome.
"If it can be destroyed by the truth, it deservs to be destroyed by the truth." ~says Carl Sagan. (When all of science can agree on what is factual and truthful, then they might be able to destroy what they call myth; but even then mankind will have beliefs and opinions which are considered "faith.")
Hi kids, I'm the comical thumper! Oh stop crying, unlike Mayan's who sacrificed quickly, he was torchered and died as a beaten bloody sacrifice. We have this as a cornerstone of our society, human sacrifice for our sins. So in blindly believing in this, evil people get away with things and grow strong but we blame the devil. Easter bunny bible "thumper" is not good.
