In response to:

The "God-Particle" and God

Normally, I agree with most of what Dennis Prager writes but not in this case.....Religion and religious belief needs to go the way of the Dodo bird - extinct. And, as for the comment about atheists being mad leftists angry at God, I'm indeed an atheist but not even remotely a leftist and it's impossible to be angry with something that hasn't been proven to exist. :-)

Well said, but I doubt people are ever going to stop believing. Even if Christianity, Islam, and all the other major religions disappear tomorrow, something else will come along to take their place. The propensity for human beings to believe without reason is routed in our biology. It's part of what compels most children to trust their parents or regular people to trust authority figures. Evolution has made belief as a means of saving the energy of investigating and reasoning everything around us. Some people just take it too far.

I'm not an atheist, but I agree with your last point.

I also find it odd that YHWH is described as a "jealous god." If there ARE no other gods, why should YHWH be jealous of something that doesn't exist?

I agree with your description of most atheists. Most atheists I have known are polite, moral, upstanding people. They don't believe in god, but they don't get angry at you if you do believe in god. That is just the media-generated cartoon version of atheists.

I imagine He would be jealous due to lost attention rather like a woman whose husband is more interested in pornographic anime than her.

btw, I am a Conservative atheist and am not trying to sell a product so much as to clarify a cosmology.
They found the "God-Particle."

That was the headline in many of America's news media. It turns out that the name actually derives from substituting "God-particle" for "goddamn particle," the original name some scientists had given the elusive particle. But the media adopted the former nomenclature.

Why?

Because otherwise, the bulk of humanity would not pay attention. Physicists went nuts. And no one can blame them. For decades, they have searched for the particle that may explain why there is any mass in the universe. And ten billion dollars were spent on the machine that probably proved its existence.

It is therefore not meant in...
