Absolute Zero Ain't Zero-Point

I was just wondering:

"Even when the temperature reaches 0 K, atoms in a solid still manage to vibrate with a zero-point energy..."

It's as if even when all of the energy has been sapped from particles, the particles are still resilient, showing us that there is some forbidden life-energy that cannot be touched no matter how low the temperature goes. It's amazing isn't it? It's as if everything around us has some fundamental life-force!

Reminds me of a verse from the bible, but too bad I can't remember it. :p
