A heavenly debate

In recent news, a scientist by the name of Peter Higgins has discovered a particle capable of converting energy into matter

In recent news, a scientist by the name of Peter Higgins has discovered a particle capable of converting energy into matter. Because creating is God’s work, the particle was named the God particle.

Creating matter from energy is the exact opposite of creating energy from matter, which is what the atom bomb is all about.

In an effort to understand the process, I took Albert Einstein’s famous formula and reversed it. E= Mc2 became M= E/c2 where E stands for energy, M stands for mass and c is the speed of light. (For those who don’t already know this, the speed of light is 180,000 miles per second).

The reversed formula shows that it would take an enormous amount of energy to create a minute amount of matter.

Departing from the scientific, it seems logical that if creating is God’s work, it follows that destruction is the devil’s work. So far the devil appears to be winning.

According to the Bible, God created the universe in six days and then he was tired and took a day off. He must have used an awful lot of energy.

If Mr. Higgins wants to take over God’s job, he will have his work cut out for him.
