Xekoslave: Santa claus is based on a real person who really lived. And existence of God doesnt have to be justified. He is as much outside physical laws as is our sentience, our soul.

I believe that nearly all myth can be traced to actual people or events that occured. Myth is an ancient method of interpretation and story telling. I don't see a solid connection between God and our 'soul' or sentience. Perhaps you can elaborate?

the question of "dominating religion" is absolutely irrelevant, dominance doesnt make a faith true or false.


also, atheist means non-theist.

Also agree but 'atheist' has become a loaded term and often implies an association with the cultural/political Left which I do not consider myself a part of.
