 Dictionary definition of truth – Oxford – True or
actual state of matter. Conformity with fact,
reality or actual existence. Webster 1828 – Exact
accordance with that which is, which was, and
which shall be. Root is to make straight, close and
fast. To conform to the actual state of things.
 IF the Word of God (Yeshua) is truth, which He
claims then what we see today will be in harmony
with what was and what shall be, hence His title – cp

 Gay is good – you are a progressive free
thinker in supporting gay rights. You are hip
and not archaic or primitive
 Gender roles are artificial but homosexuality
is natural. Gays are born that way but child
molesters are not.
 Abortion is good – you are not bringing an
unwanted child into this cruel world. Women
remain free to pursue their goals and vocation
and not to mention keeping the population of
the world to a controllable number.
 Circumcision is evil – soon to be banned in

Searching For The God Particle

“Physicists discovered a new particle that appears to be

the highly sought after Higgs boson.”
Chicago Sun Times
July 10, 2012
“Like most Americans, I was thrilled to hear that a global
team of scientists had finally discovered the elusive "God
particle." … I learned that the Higgs Boson essentially
holds the entire universe together. It gives particles mass,
which allows them to bind together to form things, like
stars and planets and Donald Trumps hair.”
New York Post
July 3, 2012
“GENEVA — Scientists working at the world’s biggest
atom smasher plan to announce tomorrow that they have
gathered enough evidence to show that the long-sought
“God particle” almost certainly does exist.”
Physicists Find Elusive Particle Seen as Key to Universe
New York Times
The Washington Post
“The search for the elusive Higgs Boson particle, also
known as the ‘God particle’ has entered a new phase as
scientists working at CERN claim they are closer than
ever to spotting it.”
The Washington Post
“It was a big day for a very small particle that, when all
was said and done, remained invisible, indeed still
theoretical. But even if scientists couldn’t claim Tuesday
that they had “discovered” the fabled Higgs boson, they
were exultant, convinced that their experiments at the
Large Hadron Collider near Geneva are zeroing in on a
particle believed to be essential to the fabric of the
‘God Particle’ out of its hiding places: CERN
Bosons and Fermions
Bosons (words) are particles that can occupy a quantum
state that is already occupied. Indeed, any number of
bosons can occupy the same quantum state. Fermions are
particles made up of matter, so they can only occupy one
space at a time. Bosons give fermions their mass.

“An untranslated particle in Hebrew often
described in grammar (somewhat
superficially) as the sign of the direct object
after an intensive verb (action). Its origin is
unknown…to summarize, the t) was
originally a substantive, and was used to
emphazise the noun (matter) to which it was
prefixed. In the course of time the emphatic
meaning was lost and t) became a particle
with no special meaning.”

“Avoiding the boson sign problem at finite chemical

Scientific American Blog
November 27, 2011
“Peter Higgs, a theoretical physicist at the University of
Edinburgh, came up with the idea of the Higgs field and
its associated particle — the Higgs boson — in 1964. The
field he proposed extends throughout the universe, and
interacts with matter particles in such a way as to give
them mass. After an interaction the field leaves behind a
telltale sign — the Higgs boson.”
The answers (particles) to the source of the existence of
the universe are never seen. We know they are there
because of the effects.

Yochanan (John) 3:8-9

“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the
sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and
whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

“Yeshua’answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of

you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye
