Enough mit der talk about god already! I say: "god? schmod!" The word 'god' adds nothing to understanding anything; it just adds a layer of complexity. Some people say that this complex cosmos could not 'just happen' without a creator... and then they propose AN EVEN MORE COMPLEX CREATOR (god) who 'just happened'! For the sake of human advancement... jettison this primitive, barbaric notion before our voyage to the stars. We have enough carry-on baggage, like psychological 'creatures of the Id' (reference to Forbidden Planet movie). Why contaminate other worlds with our reptile thinking? Perhaps it's good that humanity is quaranteened to this solar system by the speed of light. It gives us time to 'grow up'. God? Schmod!
