I admit it does take some abstract thinking. Here are some authoritaitve comments: Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist at the City University of New York, wrote on PBS’s Nova website, “If meter sticks and clocks became distorted the faster you moved, then everything you can measure with meter sticks and clocks must also change, including matter and energy. In fact, matter and energy could change into each other…thus, matter and energy are interchangeable.” And later he wrote “Banesh Hoffman, a former student [of Einstein’s], wrote, "Imagine the audacity of such a step.... Every clod of earth, every feather, every speck of dust becoming a prodigious reservoir of untapped energy.” (See http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/einstein/kaku.html ) Also, Peter Tyson is editor in chief of NOVA online wrote, “On the most basic level, the equation says that energy and mass (matter) are interchangeable; they are different forms of the same thing. Under the right conditions, energy can become mass, and vice versa. We humans don't see them that way—how can a beam of light and a walnut, say, be different forms of the same thing?—but Nature does.” (See http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/einstein/legacy.html ) Relax. Contemplate it. Energy created matter. God created you. Boy, BleedingIsaac you’re being a bit anal (heh). I admit it does take some abstract thinking.

Do you believe that dividing God by the speed of light squared will produce the mass I recently left in my toliet? Is the speed of light squared God times mass? In the equation isn't "mass" a variable depending on the subject. If I am measuring the mass of my pile of poo, does that mean that God is the energy in that poo? If God is energy, isn't it true, then, that energy is God? Should I worship my lightbulb? If God is more than energy, then the equation for mass is "mass equals a part of God divided by the speed of light squared." I really thought that I had heard just about everything. Wow!
