Is there any difference between believing in gods and believing in santas, fairies, easter bunnies?

    If you really believe they're all in the same category, there's something wrong with you.

    Yes. Believing in god makes a person intolerant, hateful, vindictive, and mendacious. Belief in those other fictional characters does not cause any of this.

    Believing in gods is socially acceptable.

    Easter comes from Ishtar, a Babylonian goddess -- also known as Eostre...etc...

    Regarding Santa . . .

      This practice is forbidden (read Jeremiah 10:1-4), in which God's words instruct His people to learn not the way of the heathen, and use the tradition of the Christmas tree as an example of what not to do. True holy days can only be established by God, and these are found in the Scriptures.

    Of course there is a difference.  If you choose to be an atheist that's up to you

    Not as far as I am concerned.

    Believing all of those things makes a person feel all warm and fuzzy.

    However, I don't need any of it to feel that way.

    Not at all. Believing in the god/gods of (insert whatever religion you believe here) is no different at all than believing in any other fairy tale creature.

    yep. well meaning and well informed people still believe in God and many have seen his various manifestations on Earth independent of any man made influences.

    on the other hand, Lepurchanism, like Atheism, presents no credible verifiable evidence to support any claims in its favor. belief in such an entity is merely an ignorant assertion of opinion.

      The Bible tells us to take The Bible to other lands where false religions have become dominant. I meant in terms of Revelation and Prophetic outcomes.

    Not really.

    They are all of the same imaginary "stuff".
