I did a post on Edmond Halley (29 October 1656 to 14 January 1741 (new Gregorian calendar)), on the anniversary of his death, on January 14, 2017.

So, I am not going to repeat myself. {Smile}. Instead I am giving you the above two YouTube videos, which are good, and the Wikipedia entry.

OK?

But, please check my earlier post. You will be glad that you did.

Good Friday — Marking The Most SIGNIFICANT DAY In The Whole Of Human History!

by Anura Guruge



Think about it. I did.

What happened on a ‘Friday‘, nearly 2,000 years ago, forever & indelibly changed the course of human history.

No other event has been so consequential.

Yes, I gave this a lot of thought.

I am working on a book on ‘Thinking‘. I am trying to come up with 365 meaningful things to think about and one of them was: “what was the most significant event, ever, that changed the course of human history”.

One way or another, whether you like it or not, it has to Jesus!

You could argue that in that case the day should be the day he was born.

Alas, we don’t know when that was! Christmas is a totally fabricated holiday.

Hence Good Friday.

IF you don’t agree and have other contenders PLEASE let me know. It will help me in my thinking.
