Meteorites and the Death of God

With the recent asteroid near miss, and the tragically destructive meteorite impact in Russia, it seems clear that in some realms of life atheism is taken for granted.

If we wanted to protect ourselves against flying rocks (and there may be many more important things to allocate resources to) we would have to track them and be prepared to send rockets to explode them before impact.
