...You didn't HAVE to drink it. Pretty sure he wouldn't be able to tell the difference between down the drain and down your throat. I would never drink juice or especially milk that had been left out for a while. LOL
...Okay. Lol. Let's say the kid went to sleep at 9 pm. Let's then give it about two hours for the kid to be sound asleep, with less of a chance of waking up and hearing "Santa." So the juice has been sitting there for about two hours. Probably warm, and possibly spoiled if it had been milk instead of juice. So no, if/when I have kids, I won't be drinking the liquids left out for "Santa." Little kids get up to check, or at least I did, so the dad couldn't drink it right away. Also, parenting fail on the OP's part - you said "the juice WE left out for Santa." How did you not notice your kid putting something extra in the juice? Also, where do you keep your medicine that an 8 year old child has access to it? Shrug. I chose YDI.
My problem with this whole exchange is that the WHOLE thing is based on assumptions. You're forgetting, this was a >DAD< who drunk it. A tired DAD who just spent a load of money on a ton of shit which will be broken in a week. So it's like come on, his not thinking. His not gunna waste time, effort and juice by going to a drain; his gunna just drink that shit. Grow up people. None of you obviously have children,
lol, smart way to figure out who santa really is. i found out by putting a dummy in my bed, and then hiding under the tree
All the evidence we possess, when examined rationally, leads one to conclude that God IS as fake as Santa. Before you use the existence of life/the universe/etc as 'evidence' for God because "everything that exists needs a creator", I'd ask you to consider who or what made God. To say something like "God is timeless" or other such crap is a logical fallacy known as 'special pleading', where your arguments are exempt from the standards then other side's arguments are held to. Besides, if something can be timeless, then the universe could be as well, or at least the conditions which allow it to exist. Also, don't bring up the fact I can't conclusively disprove God. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and it's up to the claimant to prove them, not the other person to disprove them. Otherwise, you'd need to disprove Russell's Teapot and the Invisible Pink Unicorn. After saying all that, even if you could prove some power did create the universe, it would not show that the power in question was the Judeo-Christian deity. Every argument for gods that I have heard, particularly the Judeo-Christian one, fall so far of the mark that I can't help but wonder if people who believe this stuff are intellectually deficient in some way. Back to the FML: you deserve it for lying to your kid. Now he knows he can't take what you say at face value, and that is a good life lesson for any child.
#138 Some jesus freaks voted you down. I voted up... Also, think of this to all the MAJOR dumbasses who legitimately think the earth is 2014 years old: Mary was from b.c, if b.c doesn't exist, then Mary the virgin didn't exist. No Mary, no Jesus. Christians contradict themselves. Also, when they say, "Well, what if you are wrong? You'll go to hell then." When they say that, they just summed up religion, which is one word. Fear. They instill fear into you to force you to believe and be deluded into a lie so you stay loyal to Christianity. God: Omnipresent omnipotent omniscient benevolent holy spaceless timeless being. If humans are so complex that natural selection cannot make us, then God must be created as well, since he is an ultimate being. This loops forever, making a paradox. Spaceless, timeless, and omnipresence is a paradox. You cannot be nowhere in space and time while everywhere in it.
