HYPOTHESIS: Confirmed!

Yes, it is true. Often times mythology is based somewhat in fact. Today, another of these hotly debated so-called myths moves from the realm of ignorance and superstition to the glorious field of science. Click here for the proof Santa Claus does exist. http://www.noradsanta.org/en/home.htm What more proof could you need? If Santa does not exist, would NORAD track him? What do you say? Do you believe in Santa or NOT? Tell us why.

Merry Christmas Red, This is the United States Goverment we're talking about here. Of course they wouldn't bother tracking a myth. This naturally means that jolly old St. Nick must surely exist. What else could they be tracking on that sophisticated equipment? Geesh, it's not like that's an extra-terrestrial up there in that sleigh. I think it's really kind of sweet that the U.S. DOD has kept up the Norad Santa tracking. I'm sure that that one little boy, who mistakenly called Norad instead of the Santa's workshop some years back, never could have imagined what his misdialed phone call would have started. Though, I imagine it won't be too much longer before somebody sues to try to stop this. Hopefully the Christmas 'kill-joys' never try to take this away from the many little kiddies who eagerly track Santa as he travels the whole of the world on Christmas Eve. Oh, and did you hear about the scientist at M.I.T. who is known for his 'Santa Math'? He's calculated that it's entirely possible for Santa to travel the globe in one night delivering gifts to those who believe in Christmas. It's really kind of fun. He's created a whole hypothesis about the number of Christian children, the number of those who've been good vs. naughty, their geographical locations on the planet, and the speed calculations necessary to accomplish Santa's goal. Somehow he numerically makes it all seem like it's entirely possible. Apparently, he's a big hit at M.I.T. during the Christmas season. Sorry I don't remember his name. Though if you wanted to check out his mathematical theory, I imagine you could find it by searching for "Santa Math".

That MIT scientist sounds quite creative. Most people merely state that Santa must be traveling at relativistic speed, thus slowing down time in his frame of reference. If I understand the MIT guy's theory correctly, it could be restated as, "There are so few children worthy, visiting them all is easy!".

Very funny, Red! But wait, if that were his conclusion he wouldn't be nearly as popular as he is during the holiday season. Naw, there's more to it than that. I was just busy baking Christmas goodies when he was explaining "Santa Math" on the Discovery or History Channel. It was really pretty interesting, but I couldn't stop what I was doing to jot down his variables. Drats!

Hi Red, I always wonder, "What, what this year??" Well, last night as I was listening to the radio, the nightly Victoria Police report for the days events was being discussed between the radio presenter and a VicPol PR chap, my ears pricked up, when he mentioned an unidentified aircraft. An unidentified aircraft was detected flying down near the coast and 2 fa/18 Hornets were scrambled to intercept, after trying all frequencies to contact the pilot and signalling to the pilot to follow them and getting no response, the aircraft was shot down. Last report from the pilot was of a man in a red suit and several reindeer flailing about in the water.

Merry Christmas, Red! I just had rock thrown at my window! Hang on...there's a note attached. "Dear NORAD, Do you think you could turn that thing off for a few? Gotta couple of 'special deliveries', if you know what I mean. Thanx. M. Claus".

No problem. They'll give ol'St Nick the FRIEND / FOE id code for the transponder or he'll not visit their dependent's who'll be mighty unhappy.

According to the speed some of the other overeducated windowlickers determined he would have to travel to reach every home( .003 nanoseconds or something like that ), he would be traveling too fast for Norad to be able to track him. I wonder how much of a goverment grant they get for coming up with this lame stuff?

Why? I search all over for your posts because you are an intelligent fellow and you have some neat stuff to say and this is what I find today? There is nothing but junk posts today and this is all you have too? I was looking for something with some meat to it! From one Gimmick to another. Shame shame.

Of course I do! Who else could make my niece and nephews smile every Christmas day. The looks on their faces as they race downstairs to see what Santa brought is priceless and can make even the most cold hearted people believe in the magic of Santa.

No matter what I say, I'm sure to ruffle someone's feathers, so I don't worry about it any more. Hope you had a Merry Christmas, too.

I think we can call it as a Science Fiction Hypothesis. When I was a kid, I believed in Santa. But now, I've realize that it is just a myth. Although Santa Claus is only a myth, we should keep Santa Claus's tradition and NORAD. He can be a role model to kids.

A Science Fiction Hypothesis works for me. Lot of that science fiction stuff turns out to have truth in it!
