We're So Smart...We're Stupid

There's not an answer for everything. The study of Humanity or anything organic isn't an exact science. Face it folks, life is hit and miss. There's room in this existence for the unexplained.
I was watching the television one day and stumbled onto the History Channel. They were discussing the Star of Bethlehem.

I find it funny, not in the comedic way, but, in a sad, cold, deluded way, how mankind seems to always think everything in the world can be analyzed, bisected and dissected, into white or black spectrum leaving no room for gray areas.

These scientists, I usually call them eggheads or educated idiots, were discussing the hypothesis that the Star of Bethlehem was really Halley’s comet making its 75 year jaunt around our solar system during the time of Christ’s birth. Again, science is determined to make no room in the color spectrum for gray. All the mathematicians, astronomists and every other possessor of gargantuan brains have aligned their high powered -- gray matter, computers and even some new super gadget calculator -- trying to calculate whether or not this occurrence was feasible.

I did a little digging and found this site on the web discussing the Star of Bethlehem. Of course the main theme for this site is that the Star of Bethlehem was a myth, like most scientist they believe anything Biblical or religious is mythical or folklore and only the undereducated, brain-washed or brain-dead would dare think of it any other way.

This is the excerpt I found: THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM FASCINATES -- For millenniums, believers, scoffers and the curious have wondered at the Biblical account of the Star. The Bible recounts unusual, or even impossible astronomical events at Christ's birth. For many doubters, the account of the Star is easily dismissed as myth. For many believers, it's a mystery accepted on faith. But what happens if we combine current historical scholarship, astronomical fact and an open mind?

Science says that man only uses a small portion of our brain. Could it be that God made man to use this tidbit, this iota of greatness for a reason? Scripture says God knew man before the formation of the world. He knew that if mankind was given to much power we would destroy ourselves. Look at what we are doing now, wars (the threat of nuclear weapons), abortion (murdering the most innocent of innocent), cloning (the means of making life in a test tube), biological warfare ( the means of taking life by a test tube), the list goes on. With this minuscule bit of knowledge God has given, we, mankind, are doing a bang up job--maiming, destroying and emasculating each other. Is this God’s way of limiting our expertise in playing finite gods or demi-gods?

In my way of thinking, simplistic at best, is to take heed in the wisdom of the Bible and take note: 1Cr 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Now, whether you believe in the Bible or not (that's another debate) the human race still needs to sit back and reevaluate, recalculate our value system. PEOPLE! -- We're killing ourselves and each other! All for what? Oil, the mighty green-back, or who can hoard the most gold-plated jocks or bras? Ask yourselves, whether you believe in heaven or some other after-life or whether we'll just crash the home of worms…can we take any of these material things with us?

We all would be better off if we would adhere to simplicity which, is quite simply… simple.
