    “Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded.
    And the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand.
    It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics. You are all stardust.
    You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded.
    Because the elements, the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution weren’t created at the beginning of time.
    They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars.
    And the only way they could get into your body is if the stars were kind enough to explode.
    So forget Jesus.
    The stars died so you could be here today.”

    —Lawrence M. Krauss

      It is also a blasphemy to the name of Jesus Christ but His love is so endless and all encompassing that He gave us free will to believe whatever we choose to believe. 🙂
