1) Show me *one* atom in your body that is alive. For that matter, show me *one* molecule that is alive. Yet *you* are made from these pieces of 'dead matter'. So, yes,'dead matter' can produce life.<quoted text>
Exactly. And yet science would have you believe that dead matter produces life, that something from nothing is a valid idea.
2) Ever hear of quantum fluctuations? They are an observed phenomenon where something does, indeed, come from nothing.
No, we are simply sick and tired of religious nuts thinking they can control everything in a *secular* society. You get to play your religious games in your churches, synagogues, and at home. For that matter, you can but a *private* building and do whatever you want with it: put up crèches, crosses, and any religious symbol you feel like. Nobody is attempting to take that right away from you. I would even fight to support it.You atheists are a pathetic lot. Easily reduced to a quivering heap of incoherent sniveling over the mere mention of God. Chronic bellyachers, filing lawsuits under the guise of impinged civil liberties because of your delicate feelings. "Oh, but judge, but judge, I saw a cross and it filled me with fear and loathing." "The words In God we Trust on american currency hurts my feelings." "I just cant sleep knowing there is a manger scene at the courthouse." "The sight of the Ten Commandments makes me wet my pants." "I have to pay for the cost of therapy due to recurring nightmares about a monster God trying to get me."
We hear your rage against religion and see it for what it is, a product of your own wild imagination and insecurities.
BUT, you cannot ask the *government*, even in the guise of public schools, to promote your viewpoint. You cannot have your religious viewpoint dictated to others at *government sponsored* events. So, no, you should not be able to place the Ten Commandments inside a courthouse. You can place them in your church. You cannot have Christian prayers said at school functions. You can do that at home or in church. We have a *secular* government that cannot and should not take any stance on religious questions whatsoever. The government represents *everyone* whether they are religious or not and should keep strict neutrality in regards to anything religious. And that even includes the central question of whether deities exist.
