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 and all the things
that matter for evolution and for life - weren't created at
the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear
furnances of stars, and the only way 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
