To the editor:
Carl Burkhead’s God must be rather small, after all. (Public Forum, July 12) It seems that his God is threatened by human discoveries, especially scientific ones such as the Higgs boson, which is also euphemistically labeled the “God particle.” I personally suppose that God is delighted by humanity’s insatiable hunger for knowledge, scientific or otherwise.
This God is so great as to not be threatened or limited by the expansion of such knowledge but instead is wildly applauding our continuing efforts to come to grips with the amazing universe of which we are a minuscule part. Perhaps Burkhead said it all when he stated, “I am not a physicist…” I question that Burkhead is much of a theologian.
