Exactly. And yet science would have you believe that dead matter produces life, that something from nothing is a valid idea.

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 can’t 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.

Science does not invoke belief. It does however give explanation where none exist.

You also attribute laws made to to force adherence to the constitution, to science. this is not so either, scientist's do not deal with the law of the land, but in fact deal with natural laws that are in nature above any human law to intervene.
The notion is as silly as King Midas marching to the sea,
and commanding the tide to halt.

Wow, so the existence of people who don't believe in your deity nor follow your religion really scares you that much. Your entire rant is one strawman fallacy after another.

It must be hate or fear that drive you to lie so much about a whole group of people like that. And since your religion supposedly teaches you to not hate, it must be fear.

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.

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.

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.

It’s not typical for one to leave tools at a campsite. Neither is it the norm to leave pottery laying around. These type of items go with the campers when they break camp.

Yeah dumbasses. Don't you know that when a person dies in the desert, it's like, "poof!" and all the skin and muscles turn to dust! Then the bones shrink down to pocket size! Duh! Gwad are you people stupid!
You wouldn’t happen to know what the average weight of a human skeleton?

My guess it’s anywhere between 10 to 15 pounds. You do realize after decomposition that’s all that’s left is hair and bones? Not really a lot of weight to carry by a group of men.

I’m not going to call you a dumbass or stupid such as you did to me. But I will say that you are close minded to plausible possibilities simply because it goes against your ideology.

It’s incredible the lengths some people will go to shore up their weak and vulnerable ideology. I mean what are you afraid of to admit it’s not out of the realm of possibility for Israel to have taken their dead with them?

Since you claim you are a biblical scholar. You do remember when Jacob died he was transported from Egypt to his homeland in Canaan where he was buried?

Genesis 50:

5.“My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.”

6.“And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.”
