so you can see more puzzles.

This went viral on the internet

Try to force your mind to see these illusions
the way others do (not an easy task)

The only puzzle where I was finally able to do that
was the one with the spinning girl ...
and that was quite hard to do.

From 1 Timothy 6:10
"For the love of money is the root of all evil:
which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the faith,
and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
"

So what does science have to say about that?

This ...



Einstein stopped too soon - he should have kept going.
He recognized that energy and mass were related.
But had he continued his analysis
he would have also proved a great ancient truth ...

Transposing, and then dividing both sides of the equation by "M":
C2 = E / M

Then taking the square root of both sides of the equation:
C = √E / M

And finally, translating the equation into English, yields:
"C"hristianity teaches = the "Root" of all "E"vil is "M"oney

(I'd say the Christians got that one right)
