Who Is Nature's God?

What does that mean: Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them?

Who is Nature's God? It does look like the signers of the U.S. Declaration of Independence did mean that science and god were separate and equal stations. Another implication that our forefathers intended that church and state be kept separate.

What do the laws of Nature entitle people to? Tis' said it is a dog eat dog world, survival of the fittest, alpha male shall rule over submissive or subordinate dogs. I do not think nature allows us any entitlement. If nature wants to rain on us, it will. Nature does not say we are entitled to find shelter from the typhoon or give us time to get out of the way of a tidal wave or erupting volcano.

A law of nature could be seen in mothers abandoning newborn kittens, for example, born with birth defects. How are we to assume among the powers of the earth? Assume, I guess, or, ahem, assume, means to take for granted. Or was it meant to mean acquire; makes more sense: to acquire among the powers of the earth.

What ~ Ever. Now there is a word I need to look up in the dictionary. Those guys decided it was only polite to serve notice to their oppressors that: we ain't gonna stand for that, no more, no way, no how.
