    Why can't you two admit that physics is a religion?

    Physics is based on evidence. That alone makes it completely different from religion.

    Doh! Sorry about that. I have heard many comments even worse than that in this section, so I wasn’t sure.

    God CREATED physics, so he can do whatever he wants.

    It's based on the evidence available at the time. Or are you one of those guys who is sure that scientists really have it all figured out this time and there will be no more evidence discovered, and no new theories debunking the theories everyone believes in right now, will be hypothesized, or proven?

    Maybe God put the particles there for us to find...

    Maybe the particles are there because we needed them to be there.

    Maybe we will find all we want to find.

    Maybe there is nothing there at all.
