I don't normally post things like this but after watching this video, I feel like I need to tell as many people as I can. Rundown, our cousin let us borrow this video (knowing I'm a space nut) she thought this would be right up my alley. No kidding, I found this fascinating! This LAWYER who is a a very religious Christian took an interest in finding out just what the Star of Bethlehem was. Being a lawyer, he broke things down very simply and had to find proof of his findings.
He breaks things down much better than I can and I fear if I explain too much you may just skip the video and read my babbling. Really, take an hour out of a week and give this a watch. It is QUITE good and I'd love to find out if anyone has cross referenced his work.
