[Mind's Eye] Re: Hello and questions worth pondering

Hi AJ and welcome. I don't do professional philosophy but the stuff
is sometimes useful in my work. There's a lot of the philosophy of
religion about and no denial of god as far as I'm aware - it's more a
case that belief or otherwise in certainty on the topic is a
rationalist fantasy. As a scientist I don't find god notions very
useful and think much of the myths around them are damaging. This
still leaves me pondering what the universe and our part in it is
The god particle is a metaphor for the quest for more and more effort
in particle physics - I think the name arises from Leon Leyderman
Last time I heard it was supposedly the Higgs' boson - a field that
gives mass.
