The question is who needs maturing more in this case: which ever way one
wants to define the concept of 'God', to analogize it with Santa Claus and
Easter Bunny reflects a degree of ignorance that seems to be typical for
(some) scientists. The world we live in has always been more than we were
able to prove empirically, and it still is in 1999. It's just that our
perception and understanding of the 'whole picture' has increased somewhat
but it doesn't mean that what we see is all there is.

Nothing malicious here either - just a matter of a different views.
