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."
