Okay, you are certifiable. The Earth was made from the heavy elements spewed from a dying star. The elements collected into asteroids, the asteroid into the planetoid ... and eventually enough collected to form the planet.

No. There is only a very thin film of water on the surface of the Earth.

Not a credible source, please post the ORIGINAL origin.(as in why bother WASTING time and "rewriting" MUCH of what has ALREADY been written).
I figured that'd rile a few birdbrian feathers like yewrs--and here's my response to it-the "God Particle" was a BETTER choice.
No good sense in "damning" and cussing about something, just because it hasn't been figured out yet :-).
Lazy bastard.

Here's the actual quote: "He wanted to refer to it as that 'goddamn particle' and his editor wouldn't let him," says Higgs.

Smart editor then...reiterate-no use of getting all cussy in vanity about something just 'cuz ya aint got it figured out yet lol.

Wouldn't have been as good for sales either-would've trashed it down quite a few levels, and the impact of the depth of it all, wouldn't have been the same...except for the blaring FACT, that they still "don't know" :-).

Kinda like the one they're watching 450 mil light years away now?

Maybe...maybe not...they're still working on it all!

(Hydrogen is the most abundant and lightest of all the elements. It is usually found bound to other elements and can be extracted from different materials such as natural gas, methanol, coal and water.)

As young as the universe, it is only natural that hydrogen would still be the most common element. Until it is split in the stars, or other nuclear reactions, it cannot change to any other element. The rest of the elements are like star poo, or star corpses, thus until the formation of stars begins to dwindle it will likely be that hydrogen remains the dominant element, that's fully expected.

A book is usually defined as a written work that is bound and covered. The Bible tells us that even the number of hairs on our head are know by God, so I think he remembers as well as records things.

Chemical reactions occur without guidance, without the need for any "designer," all natural science is based on this. Chemists use this fact as well, aluminum is also metallurgy, not chemistry, it's refining the metals in the rock and then mixing them, like soup. No chemical reactions there, actually.
You are clueless.

99% of mass of an atom is concentrated in the nucleus, and that the positively charged proton and negatively charged electron are bounded to the nucleus by 'electromagnetic force.'

Where does FORCE come from? My guess is, it's in the core of everything just like the nucleus of an atom.

If there was no guidance in chemical reactions, then 'why' would such electromagnetic force produce positive and negative properties that would later produce matter?

There are four forces of nature and twelve particles of matter .....

This isn't actually the hard stuff either. You don't know therefore "god" doesn't cut it. You are not even addressing stuff we don't know, which is just willful ignorance on your part. Just say you don't want to learn anything and move on, at least then you'd be honest.

DUGWAY PROVING GROUND, Utah — After a seven-year, 2.9 billion-mile round trip, NASA's Stardust space capsule floated down to a landing in the Utah desert early Sunday, bringing back interstellar dust and comet samples that scientists hope will yield clues to the origins of the solar system....
.....Stardust’s sample return is the latest mission designed to study comets up close....
Six months earlier, NASA sent a probe called Deep Impact into the path of an onrushing comet. The high-speed collision with Comet Tempel 1 set off a celestial fireworks display in space and exposed the comet’s primordial interior. Scientists have been analyzing the voluminous debris hurled from the comet’s belly and are trying to figure out the size of the crater caused by the impact....

No I'm telling you the heart of the matter.

We're talking about atoms and I brought up sub-atomic particles that consists an atom. Let's focus on that since the topic became about the God Particle.

Or better yet, how did particle produce mass? In other words, where did a nucleus come from?

You mean the goddamn particle, well thanks to that we now have a natural explanation for how we have mass, that was the entire point of that particle in the first place.
