Well, to be fair Dr. Higgs doesn't have a weekly porthole into our living rooms like Robertson. There has never been a time in society where humans didn't seek entertainment and diversion from the roughness of their lives. Life hurts, and stuff like Duck Dynasty makes it gentler. Dr. Higgs rocks and we're grateful men like him exist...but not knowning/understanding him doesn't make me a blight on society. (And there's like...30 people on earth that actually understand Higgs-Boson anyway.)

I now just reply with the question: Do you believe in gravity?" ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson [follow this link to find a short clip and analysis of a new geological epic known as the anthropocene, a period marked by the human impact on the Earth's systems: http://www.thesociologicalcinema.com/1/post/2012/05/welcome-to-the-anthropocene.html]
For more than 40 years, scientists have tried to figure out what's causing large parts of Canada, particularly the Hudson Bay region, to be "missing" gravity. In other words, gravity in the Hudson Bay area and surrounding regions is lower than it is in other parts of the world, a phenomenon first identified in the 1960s when the Earth's global gravity fields were being charted.
Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, The Bible, No Proof. If you are trying to prove that god exists there are two very important things to remember. 1) Reading the Bible is not valid research. 2) "I feel him in my heart" is not valid data.
