    I remember a story by Isaac Asimov where a religious man in the future loses his faith… when he discovers that a peaceful, prosperous society was wiped out by a supernova… the same one that guided the wise men to Bethlehem.

    I saw a tv version of that story.

    The account in Luke doesn’t sound like a star or any other natural phenomena that we are familiar with.
    .
    Read it and you’ll see what I mean.

    Is it possible, at this wonderful time of year, to just believe rather than all the analysis. That’s all children do and they have a great time.

    However, spare a thought for the children that can’t for any one of many reasons.

    Thanks for the thought. May those children have a few moments or more of peace, and why can’t it last longer?

    The story was “The Star”, by Arthur C. Clarke.

    Jesus is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas.

    I think the “Star” Heart is referring to is lying in the manger.

    Yes, Isaac was very much an ‘anti’ God person. It’s funny how in his Foundation series he eventually wrote of a man-made ‘god’, the robot who wanted to take over a humans body to continue his ‘guidance’ of the human race. So his man-made god wanted to became a man.

    Like how the Three Wise Men’s eyes have quietly cut over to Heart..

    I think Heart made a double-entendre.

    I don’t think so. That doesn’t look a bit like her.

    I have and you are wrong, it seems very much like it could have been a Nova or other natural phenomena.
