Dear Alex,
To be a physics teacher is admirable,
and pro-science skepticism is completely
agreeable to me.
To rule against theology having any objective
basis is a separate case. If physics teaching
qualifies a person to rule about theology,
it seems funny that you are teaching Einstein's physics, since his views on a Deity are different than yours.
Isaac Newton, too, not only taught, but developed highly useful basic equations. And he
was quite interested in theology.

I agree with much you say about theology, except your denial there is any objective
basis for it at all.

I don't care if you convince every sign-painter and TV news reader in the world. They are not
_necessarily experts either in your field or the field of speculation about Deity or First Cause.

"There is a tendency to rush to judgement in fields other than our own." Unless we adjust for that tendency.

Cheers, Grouchy
