in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than the your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all star dust. You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded, because all the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that mater for evolution and for life weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in the furnaces of stars, and the only ways for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today."

--Lawrence Krauss

So then the Universe created us, which means the universe is my creator. THis is why I tell everyone that the universe is my god.

i upvoted u for at least believing in something... stars are sentient objects. they felt no pain, no emotion. that doesnt really sound like much of a sacrifice to me. Jesus on the other hand... idk if u wanna be tortured and killed at the age of 35 but i'd like to see my grandkids. ...talk about a sacrifice.

it is proven that Jesus is real. It's a fact. You don't have to believe that he is the son of God, or that he performed any miracles, but he lived his life and he was killed.

Finite suffering for a supposedly infinite being is hardly a sacrifice... I really don't see what Jesus sacrificed.

I find it interesting that even the people who claim to follow the teachings of Jesus very closely seem to have a fundamental misunderstanding of his message.

i believe there has to be some kind of creator. but it's probably something that the human mind can't even fathom.

And not only that, but the material from those stars all originated from the Big Bang, the birth of the universe! We are much, MUCH older than we think. :)

Sorry 2 break it 2 yall fellas but evolution has already been disproven.. I was a firm believer in evolution but its not true and u can find detailed accounts of our beginnings in the ancient sumerian tablets.. We were genetically engineered by alien beings called the ANUNNAKI.. there from a planet called nibiru i would recommend 4 anybody 2 research this its really interesting

About evolution, the chance for DNA evolving is 1 over 10 to the 410 and if over all these years we were evolving how come we can't find a single fossil that is undergoing evolution? If u study the human body and look at all it's splendors or study the universe and look at the patterns they all point to a creator, as to where that creator came from our minds cannot fathom so stop trying to figure god out its not something we can understand.
