Collectively, New Scientist wonders whether God exists

Collectively, they are, um, dumb. After a while, one gets plumb tired of it.
From Graham Lawton at New Scientist:
IT COST more than $13 billion and took 14 years, but eventually, as expected, God showed up. The joy and relief were immense. That was in 2012, and the evidence has only become stronger. Disbelief is no longer an option. God is real. Not the God of course, but Her particle, aka the Higgs boson.
If only proving the existence of God were that simple. Gallons of ink and blood have been spilled over this question but have largely got us nowhere. Belief in a god or several gods is a leap of faith. So is disbelief. The only coherent and rational position is agnosticism.More.
Do you exist? Do I? If not, whose thoughts are these anyway? Why can we even communicate?
If there was not a designer of the universe, it must be some force that functions very much like that.
One gets uneasy when one realizes that these people actually take all this seriously. They can’t rest until they have completely deconstructed thinking in general.
