I really love this story. Miley Cyrus tweeted the famous Laurence Krauss Stardust quote that ends with ‘Forget Jesus. Stars died so you could live.” It’s a beautiful passage, but of course she was pounced on for setting a bad example(!). Remember, in America atheists are, alongside rapists, the most distrusted group of people. It takes real guts to ‘come out,’ and, even if she isn’t an atheist, even just posting a quote like that when you’re a famous celebrity is gonna get you in deep water.Miley Cyrus, I take my hat off to you!
“Twitter may be a direct way to communicate with fan but it can also get you in hot water when you are considered a teen role model, like Miley Cyrus. The singer is getting into some scalding hot water with Christians over an image she tweeted baring quotes from a scientist.
With millions of young, impressionable followers, Cyrus tweeted what can be construed as controversial quotes from a theoretical physicist who favors science over religion. Keep in mind that Miss Miley was raised a Christian, which turns this into Christian right wing scandal.
Cyrus tweeted quotes from Lawrence Krauss, which essentially proclaim that humans are all stardust created from atoms of many stars that exploded in the universe. Well, that’s at odds with Christian teachings that God created everything in his image and likeness. It’s certainly a controversial theory for those with Christian beliefs.
But it gets better. Or worse, depending on your personal belief system.
Krauss also says “Forget Jesus, stars died so that you could live.”
It’s truly a polarizing series of statements for Christians and people of faith and it’s already causing a stir among the Christian right wing.
Why Cyrus shared these quotes and if they reflect her personal beliefs is not immediately known.”
