Santa Claus - the man that gives presents and items to children on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.

Modern - of or relating to recent times

I will be taking the position that the modern day Santa Claus is not real, and that the person who gives children presents are parents.

Round I will be acceptance

Round II Will be providing evidence

Round III Will be providing rebuttals and evidence

Round IV Will be providing rebuttals and evidence

Round V Will be rebutalls. No new contentions or evidences shall be made in this round.

Modern day Santa Claus is not real.


1. There are more than 250 million houses in the world that are accepting Santa Claus.

If he wanted to travel to all of these houses in 86,000 seconds (one day), he must reach 2907 houses in one second.
250,000,000 divided by 86,000 = 2907


2. There has been no recorded evidence of flying reindeer and/or Santa Claus.


3. There has been no recorded evidence of Santa's house.


4. The weight of the sleigh must be incredibly ridiculous.Assuming that each child (321,000,000) gets nothing more than a medium-sized lego set (2 pounds), the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa. We all know that all children will get more than 2 pounds anyway.


5. Even granting that "flying reindeer" could pull TEN TIMES the normal amount, we cannot do the job with eight, or even nine. We need 214,200 reindeer to pull the sleigh.


6. With the sleigh pulling more than 320,000 tons and reaching 2907 houses per second, the sleigh would catch fire and burn.


7. Gravity would immediately push down this 321,300 ton sleigh.

Define santa as the guy who goes around on a sleigh
