Santa doesn’t want us to be mindless robots, only believing in him because we can see him like we do with other things that exist. He wants us to choose whether or not to believe that he exists.

Of course! I hadn’t considered that!

Some agnostics I know get flustered by the comparison of Santa Claus to God, because every realizes how silly it is for adults to fail to disbelieve in Santa. It really shows the special pleading for what it is.

I made the comparison to Santa when I came out to my parents. Boy, did *that* go over well …
