I too wonder... how the hell does the US gov allows this kind of crap to persist.
The First Amendment to the Constitution
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
If the US chooses to not consider it a religion, then they are still entitled to free speech and freedom of assembly.
I am a Christian. I am also a physics major. I believe God is real and that the laws of physics exist because that is how God designed the universe. It's still fun to figure out how things work. I choose to think of God as a designer and creator. When I was a little kid I used to love to take things apart and try to find out how they worked. Things like the coffee pot, The VCR, The dryer. I got yelled at a lot. Now that I am older I want to find out how things work. Things like gravity, electricity, magnetism. There are mathematical equations to describe their behaviour but it is still not entirely settled as to HOW
these things work.
Maybe I'll just become and engineer and make things for other little kids to take apart.
There are things that have happened to people around me that have no current scientific explanation. One of the people at my church was miraculously healed of an inoperable brain tumor. Another healed of a blood disease. A small town preacher that I know survived for over an hour with no blood in his body because had acidentally been shot in the femoral artery by a hunter. These things are not easily explained away by logic or contemporary science or wisdom. I take them as signs of God.
What if God showed himself to you? Not a dream, not a hallucination, but really God showed up and made himself known to you. Then you would know that God exists. What of Science then?
God became flesh in the form of Jesus Christ. He made himself known to regular people. He showed that he was in control of physics, and biology. He was crucified, died, was buried, and rose again. He lives. I enter a personal relationship with him in the form of Christianity. Christianity is not a book, a church, a rule but it is a personal relationship with a living savior, Jesus Christ. That is what I believe in.
