Maybe her rich friends can help pay.
Mod note: None of that please.
Ha! Good idea!
We could be given knowledge/information from God (Divine Revelation) revealed to us that we did not actually discover by ourselves by normal natural abilities ... for example.
Exactly. That has 0 thrill. ??
Wuuut, A guy shooting at beer cans with an AR-15 isn't well regulated? ;-D

I made a zangie garni this week, called blatjang. It is South African in origin. Has dried apricots and raisins, onions, garlic, slivered almonds, vinegar, brown sugar and spices including ginger and chili powder. It's quite good, definitely zangie.
OK, you missed the primary question though, the one you answered about atoms was somewhat rhetorical. Specifically, what is alive, point to what you claim is alive. Are you pointing at your body? It is made out of atoms, the same atoms as the rest of the Universe which you would say are not alive. Look closely at those atoms, they have their own energy, are moving, and they are predictable (subject to quantum uncertainty), they know what they are as they move about, and given the right environmental conditions, will unite with other atoms to form molecules including amino acids, the building blocks of life and the like. Those atomic interactions are caused by the forces of the Universe, that is, caused by the existence of the rest of the Universe which imparts gravitational and perhaps other effects on all the rest of the matter of the Universe, including for example, us, just as important to our existence as the atoms we are made out of. Its impossible to view the existence of what we call life, therefore, separate from its existence in nature. Like I said, the entire Universe must be alive. And, based on our observations of nature, living stuff does not self create, it is born from parents.
Oh there are 50000 or so denominations, some have really crazy ideas others have only funny hats.
Right, but when have you embellished or exaggerated?
Yes, one of us clearly is.
