God planned The Beatles, and the proof is all four lived nearby?
Surely there are X number of very talented musicians spread around the world. Simple law of averages dictates that eventually two end up living next to and meeting each other. Then all you need is George and Ringo. Inevitable rather than supernatural.
And when did God get involved in music management? Isn't Simon Cowell enough? I bet the starving africans are p*ssed that he's fiddling around organising beat combos for rich westerners instead of dealing with plagues and famines.
I didn't want to start a debate over religion and didn't mean anything bad by it. God created everyone and gave everyone a gift, that's just a fact of life. But, it's a matter of whether or not that person uses that gift for good or evil. The Beatles, for example, and countless other musicians and talented people around the world used that gift given by God for good, to give people pleasure and, in the Beatles' case, change the world. But, some people use their gift given by God for evil. And some of those people are the ones who are the leaders of Africa and all of those other countries with problems. God gave them a gift to lead a country, but they chose to abuse that gift, and that is why Africa and other countries are starving and have problems. It's the leaders of those countries fault, not God's.
To sum it up, it's a person's decision whether they should use their gift for good or evil. The Beatles used theirs for good, the leaders of Africa and places like that used theirs for evil. And this really has nothing to do with Simon Cowell.
I'm not arguing or anything, I'm just defending my view. There are probably many young teenagers out there who have had a bad upbringing with no father or real mother, like John Lennon did, for example. They probably have a talent like John did, but some of them will grow up to be a criminal or something instead. Some of them might also use their talent for good, like John did. It's their decision.
