I think every president has failed us (humanity as a whole) in the last 100 years. Just read a book that's causing a bit of a buzz in the UK (been retweeted by Dawkins) called 2082 The Chronicles Of Hope. Features a working class genius humanitarian politician and hints at a utopia.... here's a quote from it -“Isn’t it about time the scientists, philosophers and visionary geniuses of the world had a shot at running things rather than politicians?” Worth checking out the first chapter is on the website
Maggie Thatcher was a scientist...

Santa of today can be any color someone wants him to be, but growing up he was white, or at least he was on TV and when out in public. As far as Jesus is concerned, who cares what color he was 2,000 years ago, but my guess would be that he was white.
Santa isn't real, so he isn't any color. However, the Santa myth is based on St Nicholas, who was from Turkey. Ever been to Turkey? I would say Turks are lily white.

Jesus was from the Middle East, what do you think the chances are that he was white?

We have reached closer to him (my god) than any other nation on the planet . We continue to aspire to touch his hand.
You have no proof that my god, whom you think is a turtle, is a "proven false god". LMAO!

funny that these cult freaks have to insist their jesus must be white! why would that be?

if they only knew that jesus wasn't even preaching to them but to his fellow jews. in jesus's perfect world, they would have been erased from his holy land by blood and sword.

"The Shroud of Turin is either the most awesome and instructive relic of Christ in existence or it is one of the most ingenious, most unbelievably clever products of the human mind and hand on record. It is one or the other, there is no middle ground." -Historian John Walsh

Was St. Nicholas A Real Person?
St Nicholas prayer card
Card from St Nicholas Church
North Walsham, Norfolk, UK

Some say St. Nicholas existed only in legend, without any reliable historical record. Legends usually do grow out of real, actual events, though they may be embellished to make more interesting stories. Many of the St. Nicholas stories seem to be truth interwoven with imagination. However, the following facts of the life of St. Nicholas could contain some part of historical truth. They provide a clear sense of his personal characteristics which are further elaborated in other narratives.

• Nicholas' birth in Patara
Though the exact date is not known, it is believed to have occurred between AD 260 and 280. The place, Patara, can be historically grounded.

Who is St. Nicholas?
Saint Nicholas
by Susan Seals

The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus' words to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor," Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.

Jesus is dead too. Remember? They nailed him to a cross and a Roman Soldier eased his suffering with a lance to his lung. After that, Jesus was a ghost and ghosts are white.
