IIG Investigator blows lid off “Flying Reindeer” Scandal

reindeerSkeptic Ink News

Special Report

North Pole, Alaska— Amid complaints of “gotcha journalism” and an anti-Yule agenda,  Dan Geduld of the Independent Investigations Group confronted a proponent of the controversial “aerial reindeer” theory last December. A potential financial beneficiary of the claim, the local reindeer farmer claims that the evidence is clear. Unexplained sleigh and deer tracks and noises from area rooftops are circumstantial at best, but harder to explain are the vanishing milk and cookies. “Minimally, the hypothesis requires an empty glass. Skeptics can’t explain all the empty glasses,” an insider who asked not to be identified, told Skeptic Ink Monday. They continued, “It’s such an absurd lie to make up, vanishing cookies and milk, why would anyone lie about that? Also, will you please stop calling?”

Geduld was not intimidated. His intensive research turned up some uncomfortable truths. Check out the full video here as he puts corporate Big-Kringle’s feet to the Yule fire.

    I can ABSOLUTELY PROVE that Santa’s reindeer can fly.

    1) My mother said so when I was little.
    2) My brothers are really big, really tough guys, and they wouldn’t like anyone to call my mother a liar.
    3) Therefore reindeer can fly.

    So suck on that, Geduld!
    And my brothers want you to send me that check too.

      You make a pretty compelling case.

        LOL!
        Yes — this demonstration of the proof of a proposition is generally convincing..

        It’s similar to the philosophical argument for the existence of God called the “Torquemada” argument — which has motivated many atheists.
        It goes like this:
        1) See that bonfire?
        2) Therefore God exists.
