One of the most interesting debate between Theists and Atheists (yes with a capital A) is that If the Bible/Quraan is right then God exist ,and if it was wrong then he doesn't , as If These man written books have anything to do With the God of the Universe who have been unseen since the dawn of Humanity

I am so grateful that science refused to be subdued by religion. My life with breast cancer has so much more meaning with science and the options it offers me than faith in delusions could ever have. My team of medical professionals and my team of emotional supporters have something to offer that is real and does not depend on denial of reality.
Thank you, all my atheist professionals and friends who do more than rub their hands together and make verbal noises; just so much babel in a sea of platitudes signifying nothing.

Humanity Explores the Solar System

"Presently, every inner planet has at least one robotic explorer, while several others are monitoring our Sun, some are mapping Earth's Moon, a few are chasing asteroids and comets, one is orbiting Saturn, and several are even heading out into deep space. The above illustration gives more details, with the inner Solar System depicted on the upper right and the outer Solar System on the lower left. Given the present armada, our current epoch might become known as the time when humanity first probed its own star system. Sometimes widely separated spacecraft act together as an InterPlanetary Network to determine the direction of distant explosions by noting when each probe detects high energy photons. Future spacecraft milestones, as indicated along the bottom of the graphic, include Dawn reaching Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt, and New Horizons reaching Pluto, both in 2015."
