Talk to convince (2)

Another passage I really liked :

An athetist once challenged William Paley to disprove his contention that there was no Supreme Being.Very quietly Paley took out his watch, opened the case, and said: "If I were to tell you that those levers and wheels and springs made themselves and fitted themselves together and started running on their own account, wouldn't you question my intelligence? Of course, you would. But look up at the stars. Every one of them has its perfect appointed course and motion - the earth and planets around the sun, and the whole group pitching along at more than a million miles a day. Each star is another sun with its own group of worlds, rushing on through space like our own solar system. Yet there are no collisions, no disturbance, no confusion. All quiet, efficient, and controlled. Is it easier to believe that they just happened or that Someone made them so?"

very nice ya Me , really seems to be a nice book , you know this thing about athetist, there is something like that written by sheikh Shaarawy about the presence of God, and there were some aspects similar to this one , I will try to search for it .

BTW, regarding your first post, to convince , you have to explain , absolutely right ! and without being judgemental , because people won;t accept the judgement , explain your point and then it reached to the conclusion.

I was talking with one of my friends about that , as her husband tells her about things without being able to go with her into explaination and why in order to convince her. so it ends that she is not convinced.
