New computer simulations have shown how the parting of the Red Sea, as described in the Bible and the Quran, could have been a phenomenon caused by strong winds.
Seriously? Timing is everything, was it a mere coincidence that this event just so happened to coincide with the Israelites plight from the Pharoah? That must be when they conned the phrase "In the nick of time".
The LHC, thats Large Haldron Collider for those of you who have not read Angels & Demons, attempts to create "The God Particle".
Two beams of particles will race in opposite directions around the tunnel, which forms an underground ring 17 miles in circumference. The particles will be guided by more than a thousand cylindrical, supercooled magnets, linked like sausages. At four locations the beams will converge, sending the particles crashing into each other at nearly the speed of light. If all goes right, matter will be transformed by the violent collisions into wads of energy, which will in turn condense back into various intriguing types of particles, some of them never seen before. That's the essence of experimental particle physics: You smash stuff together and see what other stuff comes out.
Next thing you know, Science will be calling religious texts "Great works of Fiction".
It is unfortunate that the Human Condition dictates to tear down one ideology for another. The state of peaceful co-existence is but a Utopian Dream, for in reality, we live in a massly Secular world, that prefers Facts over Faith and Blasphemy over Beliefs.

The phrase "heading to a hell in a handbag", comes to mind.
In the war of the media, guess who is winning? As religions are too busy battling each other, they are unaware of the growing masses of those who believe in Science, or simply do not believe in God.
