Here are some inconsistancies that I wonder about. I'm not trying to bash, I'm really curious about these... so why is it that....
If you're older than 10 and you believe in Santa Claus you're immature, but if you're older than 10 and believe in God, is normal?
The Bible is considered absolute, undisputable truth, but The Illiad and the Odyssey are not? Both feature deities, miracles, vengance, war, murder, sacrifice, and a main character who did many unbelievable things. They were both written by men; why is one called historical fiction and the other called fact?
If someone says God speaks to them, it's normal; but if someone says Napoleon or Joan of Arc speaks to them, they're insane?
It's believed that Mary concieved Jesus while a virgin, but if a girl today said the same thing, nobody would believe her?
Please don't answer with "it's in the bible" or "faith". I'm asking for logical answers please.

Also the story of Santa clause is a silly thing to put against the belief in God.
This is why,
Santa clause was made up for children to believe in instead of God.
Since Santa has no religion and is just a nice story. I don't see how anyone can possibly think it is worthy to compare to the almighty.

Ok Alize I'm confused (which today isn't a surprise...LOL) are you saying tht bc God hasn't been proven one way or the other it's factural and history has been proven and it's fictional bc those in history are dead?

Ty Alize.. that was clearer..lol...
The legend of Santa is based on a Saint... St. Nicholas... the books in the Bible to me can be held as both truth in some and fictional in some bc there is to much contracdicting going on to remotely (JMO) hold it as all facts where as history has proven that certain things did or parts of still do exist today...
And like jenettyshome said, there are ways to prove if a girl claims to be pg and yet is still a virgin...
