An Empirical Question?

UPDATE: Is There A Santa Claus?

In my last post, we investigated the question of Santa Claus. Alert
TOURBUS rider Lee Jerger offers incontrovertible proof that answers
this question once and for all:

"No parent in their right mind would give a 6 year-old a drum
set, therefore Santa exists!!"

The above passage came from a 12/17/98 posting of The Internet Tourbus, a free Internet listserv pointing out fun and useful Internet sites and services.


Is the above question "Is there a Santa Claus?" an empirical one?  Is the evidence provided to answer the question empirical in nature?
