From the standpoint of physics, there is one essential difference between living things and inanimate clumps of carbon atoms: The former tend to be much better at capturing energy from their environment and dissipating that energy as heat. Jeremy England, a 31-year-old assistant professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has derived a mathematical formula that he believes explains this capacity. The formula, based on established physics, indicates that when a group of atoms is driven by an external source of energy (like the sun or chemical fuel) and surrounded by a heat bath (like the ocean or atmosphere), it will often gradually restructure itself in order to dissipate increasingly more energy. This could mean that under certain conditions, matter inexorably acquires the key physical attribute associated with life.

I'm not talking about abiogenesis.

Nobody knows what you're talking about. You are incoherent. There are words coming out of your mouth but I don't know what you're saying. Hell, you don't even know what you're saying.

Yeah. That's even worse.

You should be shocked ... and then put in a rubber room behind a locked door.

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.
