Have you checked with Gainesville Pet Rescue? I'm so sorry about C's condition. I had no idea. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help you guys out
Here, FWIW... We're a 'gesundheit' house here too.

I've heard it before. I suspect it's rooted in confusion over the distinction between being anti-religion (as some, but not all, atheists are) and anti-god.
And then there are apatheists, who just don't give a damn

You can put them in a salad, batter and fry them... I've even heard of stuffing them.
Are they male flowers? My squash haven't made any female ones (these will have a clearly visible baby squash on the stem, below the flower) yet. The male blossoms don't produce fruit. If female blossoms are dropping off and the fruit isn't developing, you may want to make sure they're getting pollinated. You can do this by hand, with a male flower: strip off the petals and gently brush the stamen against the pistils of the females.
There are weak atheists, who merely lack belief in gods, and strong atheists, who assert that gods do not exist. Certainly, the former position is more supportable. Faith is rather easily explained as an artifact of our neurology IMO. Heck, we can even induce religious experiences.
I wouldn't want to buy books from an organization that pushes Intelligent Design anyways. I skimmed some of the 'After the Flood' one that's online and boy, it's a hoot! Geoffrey of Monmouth as a reliable source? And apparently Grendel (from Beowulf) was a dinosaur! I'm going to bookmark it, looks like entertaining reading

There are many highly educated scientists that offer evidence and theories that contradict all the theories you listed above. All of these things are theories in the same sense that gravity is a theory.
