Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Atheists tell us that science and education will bring a resolution to the ills of the world.

In 2010, 20 million men, women and children died of starvation. 
In the same year Sex In The City 2 made 228 million dollars opening weekend.

Each year, just in North America we spend:
. 22 billion a year renting videos and DVD’s, 
. 95 billion on Lawn and garden supplies, 
. 389 billion on Restaurant meals, 
. 24 billion on salty snacks, 
. 16 billion on chocolate, 
. 5 billion a year on anti-aging creams, 
. 10 billion on mother’s day flowers and gifts, 
. 30 billion on pornography, 
. 50 billion a year on lotteries and another 
. 50 billion on illegal gambling. 

Perhaps our problems lie a bit deeper than what advances in science and education can address.
