Thank you for the vote. Perhaps in the future another debate like this will happen.

>Reason for Mod Action:
I read the debate to see if this vote was glossing over major areas of contention, but no, thus was the core of the debate with a fair conclusion. That it gave feedback to suggest how pro could have done better, does not invalidate it.

The vote was found to be sufficient per the site voting policy standards.

I could have changed the resolution to "asdfewr doesn't exits" and I can still make my case. Nevertheless, the name "Santa Clause" was used in a famous Christmas movie so I'm sure my point was conveyed.

to be fair, Jarrett successfully argued for the Kalam Cosmetological argument, despite it also non existing

Added:

Of course “Santa Clause” doesn’t exist. It is spelled Santa Claus.

This is the same as saying that “Georg Washingten is the 1st president of the United States” is false.

define "exist" and define "Santa Claus"
