Birth dath Shmirth date

Ok so it seems that there really ARE people who think the whole birth date determines who you are thing really works (so much for the nature/nurture debate!)

I know we all love it when we read a description that seems to flatter us and encapsulate all we've always really known about our deep-seated virtue but have never been brave enough to assert.

Well Star signs are one thing - they apply, allegedly to approximately 1/12th the population but these birth date things apply to approx 1/365th (Statisticians - I know I know it's not perfect but it's a rough estimate) so it's not much mroe plausible.

Just in case there was anyone out there thinking that these things MIGHT be TRUE I have a few arguments to counter it.

Firstly the whole Jesus saying I AM the way the truth and the life ...

Secondly and rather more forcibly this time compare the people who share MY birthday for 14th November - Me, Prince Charles, Claude Monet - yeah like we're ALL THE SAME!!

Thirdly, if I share a birthday with Prince Charles, that means someone shares a birth date with Adolf Hitler which is as follows:

Your Birthdate: April 20

You are a virtual roller coaster of emotions, and most people enjoy the ride.
Your mood tends to set the tone of the room, and when you're happy, this is a good thing.
When you get in a dark mood, watch out - it's very hard to get you out of it.
It's sometimes hard for you to cheer up, and your gloom can be contagious.

Your strength: Your warm heart

Your weakness: Trouble controlling your emotions

Your power color: Black

Your power symbol: Musical note

Your power month: February

Ok so that applies to 1/365th of the population EVER of this world apparently and that means that 1/365th of the population was like Adolf Hitler. Fortunately this is NOT true!

Finally everyone, can we realise that each one of us is a marvel of God's creation, an individual, distinct beloved child of God and much as we strive to be LIKE something IDEAL, that which we trully resemble is the one who created us and maybe we should focus on that more.
