Miley Cyrus has been under fire since posting her controversial "forget Jesus" tweet, and now the 19-year-old has responded to the online religious backlash she's received.

Last week, Miley tweeted the caption "Beautiful" with an image that featured a quote from physicist Lawrence Krauss. It reads: "You are all stardust. You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all the things that matter for evolution) weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars died so you can live."

Miley has fielded plenty of criticism since posting the tweet, which many feel is anti-Christian. Some fans even went as far as tweeting at the star to "go to hell."

However, the 'Can't Be Tamed' singer has responded by saying, "How can people take the love out of science and bring hate into religion so easily?" She added, "It makes me sad to think the world is this way. Like Einstein says 'Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.'"
