The Story of The Wise Men – Star or No Star?

If you like to watch Discovery Channel as I do, you might find yourself catching shows about Christmas and whether or not there’s any scientific basis to the story of Christmas.

The interesting thing about science, is we all too often accept science as 100% fact.  The truth is, that’s not always the case, especially when it comes to events of the distant past and the overall nature of our origins.  If you follow the trail, popular scientific opinion about how the universe was created has varied over the years.  Even the smartest of the smart people don’t see eye to eye on how we got here and why.

Take the star of Bethlehem for example.  Without much effort, I was able to locate two very different articles about whether or not the star of Bethlehem has merit.  One says it’s not possible and another that suggests a planetary convergence or a comet might explain the phenomenon.  If you Google the subject, you’ll find hundreds of articles on the subject on either side of the question.

In the end, you get to choose what you believe to be true.  I choose to believe the story of the birth of our Savior.   In my many years working in Twin Falls, I have met many wonderful people, like you.  Each one of you are so fantastic and so unique that I simply cannot believe that you are some accidental, random convergence of stuff.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
