Dead people follow the rules of nature. They decay and get eaten by worms. That's the rule.

Does quantum theory follow any principle that justifies it to be called science? What makes it different from non-scientific theories and pseudoscience?It is based on observation, explains observations, and so far accurately predicts further observations. The day it doesn't, we'll have to find a better one. That makes it a scientific theory.
OK, you get in the rocket and go to Mars without faith in science.
Which of these things have empirical evidence?Models involving the first 5 have useful explanatory and predictive capabilities. The rest are not inconsistent with observation (apart, probably, from the magnetic monopole) and might at least be explanatory or predictive but their predictions are inexplicit and untested. There is some discussion as to whether string theory is predictive or testable, but the fact that it is intended to be at least predictive puts it in the realm of scientific endeavour.
DNA, atom, electron, photon, gluon, graviton, anyon, tachyon, dark matter, dark energy, magnetic monopole?
what about multiverse and string theories?
So science and a belief in God will always require faithUtter rubbish. The essence of the scientific process is a refusal to accept any hypothesis that does not generate consistently accurate predictions - the diametric opposite of faith.
Many comedians deliberately annoy politicians. Should they be punished?Not all of them. Annoyance may be enough.
Until later in school 1+1 became 10. It equaling 2 assumed a base that the teacher and the rest of us took for granted until later when other bases were considered.Er, no. One plus one equals two in any base (integer progression along a number line) , but the base determines how you represent two numerically. Up to a point, that is. There are variants of binary representation such as Cyclic Gray Code where
No, but why would Adam have 'em? E/specially if he was created first? What use were they to him?
