Religion has no place in Government
|"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."|
If men are "created", that logically implies there is a creator, as a creator is one who creates. Those who don't believe in a creator, don't believe in creation, and therefore cannot possibly believe in the rights of something that doesn't exist.
Of course, there are many who simply don't believe in "creation". They believe that mankind exists, but they don't believe any type of "creation" was involved. I've never come across one of these people who can explain how an anti-creationist belief system coincides with The First Law of Thermodynamics. "The First Law" is usually the first of many cases where anti-creationists don't let science interfere with their "faith".
If you're unfamiliar with what I'm referring to, The First Law of Thermodynamics clearly states that nothing is now coming into existence or going out of existence. Matter and energy may be converted into one another, but there is no net increase in the combined total of what exists. I've never seen a scientific paper, or heard anyone with a scientific background successfully argue against The First Law of Thermodynamics. Obviously there is matter. Obviously there is energy. Obviously The First Law of Thermodynamics is correct. See the dilemma? A logical conclusion is Someone who is external to The First Law of Thermodynamics created all the energy and matter that is present. The Personage of that individual is GOD. Another logical conclusion requires "faith" that matter and energy somehow came into existence in spite of The First Law of Thermodynamics.
