Here's something for everyone to chew on....

 The Devil is 'evil' to society at large. Santa is the epitome of all that is good and wholesome to society at large. What's the difference between that fat bastard and Satan? The 'N' is in a different spot.

Well, actually, seems they are not so different after all, meaning that Santa is primly a pagan figure that was embedded in christianity for god knows what reason (oh, sorry, Coca Cola commercial, really smells on little angels, right?  :lol: ). For me he could as well have hooves and horns under all that masque, also, hes a bit too nice to kids dont you think?

 Hate to burst your bubble, Banshee, but Good ole Saint Nick was a real, live person. (Not to be confused with Pinocchio being a real, live boy.)

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas

 It just so happens that people decided to use and abuse his reputation to make their children behave... because they were too shytty and lazy as parents to do it themselves.

You might want to make yourself a bit clearer on that one...

As far as I'm concerned, his remains were not turned into a television... (Or did you mean something else by TV? If you didn't, I think you need to re-read Kadesh's post :roll:) Help, I'm confused...

  She is more than likely referring to this statement

  Parents often use television as an instructional tool in place of actually teaching their children values of any kind.  You say that parents use Santa for that purpose and she made the connection to television in that way.

Ohhh, I hadn't thought of that. All clear now :-P

In that sense, yes, Santa's used in the same way as TV...

 Not exactly what I meant...

 They use Santa more as a disciplinary measure. "Be good or Santa won't bring you presents." The TV is used, as Muerte said, as a learning tool because parents are too lazy to teach the children themselves.

  I knew that dear, but it is perception which rules understanding.  I am simply able to understand things and ideas from a variety of angles.  A skill I use to either assist people or devastate my enemies.  As I said in another thread, Knowledge is power, and the ability to apply that Knowledge is what makes a person truly powerful.


  And you are welcome Banshee.

  *Damn, where is the clap button*  Raziel, that was really an awesome read and a great point to boot.  May be your new persona should be that of the finder of antiquities.  Some of that I have never read about before, it will now be added to my journal of pagan gods under Odin, thank you for the new source of information.
