In science, theory is not about what happens so much as how and why it does. Theory does not describe, it explains. Odd that you don't know that...

If you would put as much effort into learning what Science has to say about the birth of our Universe, as you apparently do for Religion, then you would know that this Universe began it's evolution from... "something."

It's up to you to find out what that scientific something is.... if you are so inclined.

Soap Opera America

ANCHORAGE, Alaska- It began as a birthday party that drew local snowmobile racers, construction workers and other longtime Alaskans last Saturday night. It turned into a brawl with members of Sarah Palin's family in the center of it, according to witnesses.

The police are still investigating, and the Palin family is not commenting. But the episode is adding some more atmospheric notes to the background noise surrounding Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate and the former governor of Alaska.

According to the Anchorage Police Department, officers responded to "a report of a verbal and physical altercation taking place between multiple subjects outside of a residence located on the 900 block of Harbor Circle."

Several witnesses said the trouble started when Track Palin, Palin's son, confronted a former boyfriend of his sister Willow and a fight broke out. Before long Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, who was also celebrating a birthday, was said to have gotten involved in the fighting.

According to witnesses, Bristol Palin, one of Sarah Palin's daughters, threw punches at the owner of the house where the party was being held.

In the end, the home­owner ordered the Palins to leave, witnesses said.

Before they departed in their stretch Hummer limo, however, Sarah Palin allegedly unleashed several rounds of profanity.

I did not know matrimonial unity was a public event for display. Nor was dating or engagement. Supervision so no relations prior to marriage or living quarters period. Separate buildings on a property but close supervision. SO the couple knows medical laws of each other of the immediate family and District Attorney records and consolidate medical and legal formalities pre-enterance into marriage. Gossip or display show case partners is exploitation of your partner and immediate affairs and costs 2.5 million plus prison if you violate.

Although, have you ever lived with a FRIEND or a border and shared expenses and taxes for being on 1 piece of property? That does not involve sex nor broadcasting to public audience you have sex with partner, same sex partner, a goblin, gnome, angel, troll, God, Dog, Goat, shadow demon, or spider. That all constitutes mental health affairs before venturing into a relation with anyone PERIOD>

The Godless have had a real PR problem for centuries.
Up to this point in human history, atheism has lacked the wide, warm and consoling embrace that mystics, sages and religious leaders have been able to provide.

Not that not believing in God has gone without its high-profile proponents. Whether it was Karl Marx, Bertrand Russell, Sartre or Einstein, there have been plenty of role models. But it’s been a quiet tutelage, done so mostly in private, on the written page or at smoky back tables.
The only openly popular form of atheistic engagement comes at us like a freight train—strident, forceful and earth scorching. The widest acceptance of non-belief occurred under communism, in Stalinist Russia and Mao’s China.(We use the word “acceptance” very loosely here.)
More recently, there’s been the militant atheism espoused by the likes of writer-raconteur

Christopher Hitchens, who died in 2011,

and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, who once told a crowd
to “ridicule” and “mock” people of faith.

Mere believers are low-hanging fruit for Dawkins.

He also regularly takes swipes at survivors (be it of child abuse or sexual assault), people with Down syndrome, you name it.

As well to add to the Homosexual angle of it a, I did not ever see Documented and funded Atheists entering in same sexed marriage or litigations either. They are all hetrosexual and are not in the community as their membership bought them well fortified houses and they lose funds with affiliations of those in civilian society and public.

Although medically homosexual or unisexed affairs, once again worms. And your body is made of micro-species and over 70 % volume of Worm origin and derivatives YES So again medically brain dead, so you need to see a neuro-surgeon or brain surgeon, both is only a 2 minute procedure and I am alive to prove it will save your life from stroke and heart attack weekly or undesirable touch of self that is self destructive pulls and tears skin tissues and muscle and nerve cords, causing inner body stretch marks that leak toxic fluids in system and local drs will misdiagnose aides or blood disease, it would be Blood disease and treated with a vacuam syringe and saline anti-biotic cleansing and may need transfusion which is blood from your spine and tissue and reentered into your body. your dr has refused referall for reasons of embarrassment or negligence.

When they take the infection worm that chatters out the body and treat it, the brain chamber will refuse those similar and you are back with immediate family again and can finger point who encouraged topic and introductions and with your medical confirmation you can sue the crap out the people that made or permited you to think unhealthy like that and the impulse to act upon it.

The irony of it all is that those who believe a god gave them their brain, allow religion to prevent them from utilizing the powers of the human mind to it's fullest "uninhibited" potential.

That's unfortunate.

Why else would the ignorant and mentally challenged cling to "faith" like a baby's security blanket? Because otherwise, they would have to grow up, deal with Reality, and start using those brains. They would have to be responsible for what they do and what they don't do. That's hard work. It can lose you friends and family. You can die from it, or be hated by strangers. Just like any other religion, you can be prosecuted.
