Scientific Proof That Santa Does Exist

Here are the answers to those questions your children ask you about the proof of Santa’s existence. Here is a list of scientific breakthroughs, that can put your mind at rest, so you can stop running around trying to be Santa; because Santa will take care of it all. Most of the scientific breakthroughs came from Silverberg, a noted U.S. engineer, rocket scientist, and professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, for our scientific proof.

santa4According to Silverberg, “Santa has made several scientific breakthroughs since he moved to the North Pole more than 1,000 years ago in. His primary research has been on Einstein’s theory of relativity, which allows him to bend and stretch the time space continuum.

If tracking Santa’s whereabouts on Christmas Eve on Norad doesn’t satisfy your curious child, here are the answers to the 13 most commonly asked questions children have about Santa:

  1. Are there really elves? This evidence became crystal clear when my son examined the screws that went into the battery compartment of his special toy. “Elves are the reason we have to use these tiny screwdrivers to change the batteries in toys.”
  2. How will Santa know what I want? Those letters to Santa are nice, but they’re not the real reason Santa knows what you want. Scientists know that a thought can change matter. So, Santa has constructed an elaborate underground antenna that collects electromagnetic waves (similar to cell phones) from the thoughts-waves of children. These waves are filtered so that Santa can distinguish which thoughts are coming from which kids.
  3. Can reindeer really fly? Just because you’ve never seen a flying reindeer doesn’t mean they don’t exist. According to Spy Magazine, “there are perhaps several hundred thousand species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and microorganisms, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer which only Santa has ever seen.”
  4. How does Santa know when I’m good? Santa knows. The same filtering system he uses to collect your thoughts and presents also helps him see how sweet and adorable you are.
  5. How can Santa make it to every house in one night? When Santa realized that in physics, distance and time look different in different reference frames. This allowed him to control time, space and light by creating “relativity clouds,” where time can get much longer and space can contract. Inside the relativity cloud, Santa has months to deliver presents, and we see it as a split second. Silverberg’s team at NCSU performed detailed calculations using this relativity model. “We found that in six months, a fleet of 750 sleighs could get to all of the homes on Earth, traveling an average of 84 mph in the relativity cloud,” he said. “Of course, outside the cloud, all that happens on Christmas Eve.”
  6. I stayed up all night, and Santa never came. This is because Santa’s relativity cloud brings him to our house in milliseconds; he moves so fast that it is impossible to see him. Similar to a way a bumble bee buzzes by.
  7. How does Santa fit through the chimney – and what if we have a fire in it? Using this same relativity clouds, “Santa probably also shrinks and expands the cloud, so he can enter houses through tiny openings. This means he can come down the chimney, through a keyhole, or our mail slot.
  8. How does Santa know which way to fly? Mrs. Claus handles the advanced onboard computers with built in GPS systems – similar to what we now have in cars today – to create the most efficient routes for Santa’s sleigh.
  9. How does Santa fit all of those toys on his sleigh? Santa doesn’t bring presents on his sleigh. Silverbergs says that Santa created an on-the-spot toy maker. The nano-toymaker remote control is pointed at a special substance Santa places under the tree. This is similar to the way new skin is created when you get hurt.
  10. What is Santa’s sleigh like? Silverberg explains that the GPS system on Santa’s dashboard is holographic. It displays cruise control and manual override, the nano-toymaker, the children’s toy lists, and the optimized navigational maps. The sleigh also has two drink holders (for eggnog).
  11. How many homes does Santa visit? Here’s a great mathematical problem for your children to ponder over when they say they’re bored over Christmas break: Calculation here by Silverberg: 191 million children under age 18 in industrialized countries (per UNICEF). Average of 2.67 children per home, sSo there are 75 million homes to visit.
  12. How far does Santa travel on Christmas Eve? Another “I’m bored” activity, provided by Silverberg. The Earth’s radius is 3986 miles which yields a surface area of 4R2=200 million square miles. Average distance between homes is the square root of 200/75 =1.63 miles. Total distance traveled is 75×1.63=122 million miles. Assuming 1 sleigh delivering presents over 24 hours, the average speed of the sleigh is 122×106/24=5, 083, 000 mph (Mach 480). The speed of light is 300 million meters/sec. = 669,600,000 mph which is 669,600/5,083=130 times greater than the average speed of the sleigh. There’s more than enough time to do it!!
  13. I don’t understand what you said. A more realistic scenario: Assume Santa delivers the presents in 6 “Santa” months. The average speed is then 5,083,000/182.5 = 27,852 mph (Mach 2.62). In another scenario, assume that Santa has a fleet of 750 sleighs. The average speed is then 84 mph – which is achievable using Santa’s reindeer equipped with jetpacks.

  3. i love it!! we have to write a paper in school arguing whether santa exists and im totally using this site..
    thanks for your awesome logic! merry christmas!!! keep the generations of believing alive!

  4. A Scientific View of Santa
    1) No known species of reindeer can fly. But there are 300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and germs, this does not completely rule out flying reindeer, which only Santa has ever seen.2) There are 2 billion children in the world (persons under 18). But since Santa doesn’t (appear to) handle Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, or Buddhist children, that reduces the workload by 85% of the total–leaving 378 million according to the Population Reference Bureau. At an average (census) rate of 3.5 children per household, that’s 91.8 million homes. One presumes there is at least one good child per house.3) Santa has 31 hours of Christmas to work with, thanks to the different time zones and the rotation of the earth, assuming he travels east to west (which seems logical). This works out to 822.6 visits per second. This is to say that for each Christian household with good children, Santa has 1/1000th of a second to park, hop out of the sleigh, jump down the chimney, fill the stocking, distribute the remaining presents under the tree, eat whatever snacks have been left, get back up the chimney, get back into the sleigh and move on to the next house. Assuming that each of these 91.8 million stops are evenly distributed around the earth (which, of course, we know to be false but for the purposes of our calculations we will accept), we are now talking about 0.78 miles per household, a total trip of 75.5 million miles, not counting stops to do what most of us do at least once every 31 hours, plus feeding, etc. That means that Santa’s sleigh is moving at 650 miles per second, 3000 times the speed of sound. For purposes of comparison, the fastest man-made vehicle on earth, the Ulysses space probe, moves at a poky 27.4 miles per second – a conventional reindeer can run, at tops 25-30 miles per hour.4) The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element. Assuming each child gets nothing more then a medium sized LEGO set (2 lbs.), the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa, who is invariably described as overweight. On land, conventional reindeer can pull no more than 300 pounds. Even granting the “flying reindeer” can pull TEN TIMES that normal amount, we cannot do the job with eight, or even nine–we need 214,200 reindeer. This increased the payload–not even counting the weight of the sleigh–to 353,430 tons. Again for comparison, this is four times the weight of the HMS Queen Elizabeth.5) 353,000 tons travelling at 650 miles per second creates enormous air resistance. This will heat the reindeer up in the same fashion as spacecrafts re-entering the earth’s atmosphere. The lead pair will absorb 14.3 QUINTILLION joules of energy per second, each. In short, they will burst into flames almost instantaneously, exposing the reindeer behind them, and creating a deafening sonic boom in their wake. The entire reindeer team will be vaporized within 4.26 thousandths of a second. Santa meanwhile, will be subject to centrifugal forces of 17,500.06 times greater than gravity. A 250 lb. Santa (which seems ludicrously slim) would be pinned to the back of the sleigh by a 4,315,015 pound force. In conclusion, if Santa ever DID deliver presents on Christmas eve, he’s now dead.

  5. Still not convinced? READ THIS THEN:

    Santa really exists. I am a Christian, and God and Jesus and I’m pretty sure the bible says he exists. My Dad is TOO lazy to get up that early/late to put the presents there. I am up and so is my older sister are up REALLY late every night including Christmas and Christmas Eve. My Mom would never get up that late ever. My family never had a lot of money, but I always got a lot of presents, so how would you explain that? Plus, I NEVER told anyone what I really wanted. But Jesus and God always knew. And since Santa is one of his angels, he would know also. Maybe Santa doesn’t ride on magical reindeer. Or go through our chimneys, but how would you explain the eaten cookies, the half drunk milk? Do you video tape your parents? If you video the chimney, he won’t come because he doesn’t want you to see. But you can believe, and he will come. And if you don’t believe in Santa, why? I just explained to you that he does. I still question it, but above all he does. Did your parents tell you he doesn’t exist? Well, maybe they are lying, or never knew. You have to witness it for yourself and believe what you think is right. Why celebrate Christmas, if you don’t believe in Santa? If your parents say he doesn’t exist, why are there still presents under the tree? If there isn’t that’s because YOU believe what your parents said. Not because he doesn’t exist. He does. If YOU believe, he will come. If you don’t he won’t that’s the way it is. If he doesn’t come, that’s NOT because he isn’t real. Like I keep saying, HE DOES! Think about it. And believe what YOU think is right. Read the bible, and go to church. Take my word for it, Santa DOES exist!


  6. I’m bookmarking this page, SusieJ! Absolutely love all the explanations. In our house we leave a little evidence of Santa’s visit each year (bootprints, reindeer hoof prints, Santa’s glove, etc). They also receive a letter from Santa postmarked from North Pole, Alaska each year. Our kids 100% believe in his existence and my oldest is past the age they say most kids stop. We hope to prolong the magic for him as long as possible. 🙂

  7. Actually, Santa visits less than 75 million homes, because only a fraction of families observe Christmas (that is, do the whole Christmas tree, presents & stockings thing) and a fraction of THOSE children actually believe in Santa.

  8. You have presented some interesting facts relating to the existence of Santa yet some are rather what can be described as nonsense for you have no evidence to suggest Santa has jet packs etc. It seems rather biased for some of “facts” that you have presented depend solely of conspiracies.

  9. happy holidays! did you ever have that feeling of magic? was it when you came down stairs on christmas and found a tree completly surounded by presents? that is when a had a great feeling of magic. by saying santa exists you are keeping that magic alive. do you want your children to feel the same way you did? someone had to have eaten those cookies and milk. not just any raindear could walk on your roof and eat the carrots you left out. the reason people don’t believe in him is that they did not think he was real and then he stoped giving them presents because to get them you need to believe. after that they just stop believeing forever. he is real if you believe!

    Mirana thinks santa does not have a jet pack and i agree! he has magic!

  10. Oh, this is great.
    Even my grandmother believes in Santa, and once on Christmas Eve she joked about how funny it would be if he gave her a doll for Christmas.

    And sure enough, it came the next day.

  11. Finally the truth!! and all my freinds were saying he didn’t exist,lets see the look on there faces when I show them the scientific truth!!


  12. I can’t believe it!! I really had a hard time trying to convince my friends that Santa is real.Thank you,SUSIEJ!!

  13. and then santa gives the parents and non believers drugs that make them hallucinate buying the gifts, BUT I KNOW BETTER!!
    dont ever leave your hot chocolate unattended!!

    on another note if you celebrate christmas than you probably (hopefully?) should believe in god and jesus and if you can believe in them without any proof besides what you feel in your heart, than santa deserves the same courtesy! right?!
    (if you dont believe in them and celebrate christmas anyway than i suggest waiting for everything to go on sale in january…)
    haha 😀 thanks so much for this!
    everyone should print it out and hide it somewhere they will forget about but know they will find it at christmas time so they have a wonderful reminder of christmas magic whenever spirits are running in short supply!

    and to everyone, i still believe. no joke. and you, random mean angry reader, cannot change my mind!!
    merry christmas! and good luck!

  14. 6. I stayed up all night, and Santa never came.
    This is because Santa’s relativity cloud brings him to our house in milliseconds; he moves so fast that it is impossible to see him. Similar to a way a bumble bee buzzes by.

    So you say that when you stay up all night, presents will just spawn under the tree? pop up out of nothing? this is hilarious 😛

  15. I was not sure about Santa until I heard this article. Now this girl wants to see some presents under her tree when I stay up Christmas Eve.

  16. Thanks for the helpful list. My
    brother said he didn’t believe in
    Santa today and after this article I proved him wrong. Just one question. How does Santa Claus not die?

  17. Hi I am 10 and my parents told me santa wasn’t real. I was so devastated! But then, I read your website and KNEW he was real! Thanks! (AKA my birthday is in Christmas, so imagine)
