Did Jesus exist? Or was He a myth like Santa Claus. It’s a popular comparison.
It’s a comparison [Wintery Knight](http://winteryknight.wordpress.com/) tackles in his post _[Did Jesus exist? Agnostic historian Bart Ehrman debates Infidel Guy](http://winteryknight.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/did-jesus-exist-agnostic-historian-bart-ehrman-debates-infidel-guy/)_.
In it he says:
> When I look at atheists, I do see a lot of belief without evidence, and I suspect that they are just projecting their childish Santa Claus epistemology on Christians.
He also provides a great video debate between Bart Ehrman and Infidel Guy regarding serious historians and the evidence for Jesus, making the Santa Claus comparison silly.
I highly recommend it.
