An accusation levelled suggests my 'brand' of atheism smears intelligent thinking Xtians with the idea that their belief in God is no more sophisticated than a child's belief in Santa Claus? No matter how you dress it up the similarities are stark... Jesus vs Santa?

Both get great press at Xmas, both are friendly and good with kids, they each have beards, both are surrounded by male helpers, both are constantly badgered with requests, both can be in many places at once, they each use animals as a mode of transport,  they both generate enormous profits for business, they are both immortal and most obviously, they are both fictional.

have I missed anything?
