No it doesn't. In reality the Earth is round. I imagine even someone like you admits this, even though you've never been in orbit to see it yourself. Yep. And I bet you could pick a God character out of a lineup as well, because depictions of God through the years have been relatively uniform (flowing robes, white beard etc.) Neither the God character nor the Santa character, however, would be real. If you did such a police lineup and claimed that the guy who looked like Santa was actually Santa Claus, with flying reindeer, elves working for him at the North Pole and a world-size bag of presents, they'd have you held for a psych consult.
