Not quite.
Jesus and the Father are one. You and I and the Father are one.
"Is it not written in your law,'I have said you are gods' "
-Jesus of Nazareth
Your true self is not physical. It is spirit. It is one with the Father.
When Jesus said that, "I have said you are gods", he wasn't referring to every man. He was referring to magistrates, judges, and other people who hold positions of authority and rule.

They are representing God, but they are mortal and will eventually be judged by God for how they used that authority.

It's the same old story. If Christians act poorly, it's because they are Christians. If atheists or humanists act poorly, it's not because they are atheists or humanists.
It's probably because they knew Christians.
I've noticed that "standard" pattern among our atheist friends here.

They always gotta have a scapegoat. It's easier for them to blame Christians (and the God they don't believe in) than to take responsibility for their own actions or the actions of man.

"It's the church!"

It aint necessarily so wrote:
They are all essentially the same thing in a slightly different wrapper. The world has suffered wherever Stalinism, Christianity, Maoism or Islam have called the shots, and in precisely the same way.
Please feel free to bring up Stalinism and Moaism all you like, and I will continue to point out how authoritarian ideologies of violence and despair are all the same. Only humanism offers an alternative worth working for.
And there we have it.

Not a close friend at all, but I have socialized with Jerry Brown at several functions.
I have called him Jerry when in a group and others called him that. One on one, I call him Governor and he calls me by my first name.
Brown is one hell of a nice guy, by the way. And his wife wears the pants in many respects.
Huh.

For some reason, that his wife wears the pants means something special to you.

That's quite telling....

As far as your buddy Jerry, it's no wonder you like him.

We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care.

He's a Nanny State Ass. Perfect for libs like you.

<quoted text>
In the context of science...
From the World English Dictionary...
Theory:
5. a set of hypotheses related by logical or mathematical arguments to explain and predict a wide variety of connected phenomena in general terms: the theory of relativity
From the Britannica Online Encyclopedia...
scientific theory, systematic ideational structure of broad scope, conceived by the human imagination, that encompasses a family of empirical (experiential) laws regarding regularities existing in objects and events, both observed and posited. A scientific theory is a structure suggested by these laws and is devised to explain them in a scientifically rational manner.
In attempting to explain things and events, the scientist employs (1) careful observation or experiments,(2) reports of regularities, and (3) systematic explanatory schemes (theories). The statements of regularities, if accurate, may be taken as empirical laws expressing continuing relationships among the things or characteristics observed. Thus, when empirical laws are able to satisfy curiosity by uncovering an orderliness in the behaviour of things or events, the scientist may advance a systematic scheme, or scientific theory, to provide an accepted explanation of why these laws obtain.
Empirical laws and scientific theories differ in several ways. In a law, reasonably clear observational rules are available for determining the meaning of each of its terms; thus, a law can be tested by carefully observing the things and properties referred to by these terms. Indeed, they are initially formulated by generalizing or schematizing from observed relationships. In the case of scientific theories, however, some of the terms commonly refer to things that are not observed. Thus, it is evident that theories are imaginative constructions of the human mind—the results of philosophical and aesthetic judgments as well as of observation—for they are only suggested by observational information rather than inductively generalized from it. Moreover, theories cannot ordinarily be tested and accepted on the same grounds as laws. Thus, whereas an empirical law expresses a unifying relationship among a small selection of observables, scientific theories have much greater scope, explaining a variety of such laws and predicting others as yet undiscovered.
A theory may be characterized as a postulational system (a set of premises) from which empirical laws are deducible as theorems. Thus, it can have an abstract logical form, with axioms, formation rules, and rules for drawing deductions from the axioms, as well as definitions for empirically interpreting its symbols. In practice, however, theories are seldom structured so carefully.

Parents should be notified and aware of what their minor children are doing, sex and abortions included.

The crazy liberal mindset says that the government and the minor only needs to know, the parents are irrelevant.

Fuckthat.
