Truth of matter is God's as real as Santa Claus

Published 15/05/2014

I READ with interest the many letters on this page in recent weeks arguing for the existence of God. It strikes me a thread of wishful thinking runs through them all.

A prime example of this is the argument that the beauty and magnificence of the universe is enough to prove that God exists.

Western civilisation is at a stage now where it can be compared to a child who is on the cusp of realising that Santa Claus is not real.

He/she knows that something doesn't make any sense, but is reluctant to let go of the magic and is afraid that the gifts might not be quite as good.
