It doesn't take 13 minutes to explain God.

People were insecure and lacked basic scientific knowledge of nature so someone invented God so they could "explain" nature and in doing so they could control the people. Over time other's wanted to control the people so they took parts of previous religions that had worked, changed them a little, and created a new religion so that the people would follow them.

Religion has always been about power and control of the people where myth and superstition are the means of control. We know that because we can actually track the development of religion at it evolved during recorded history.

Look at Christianity today which was a merging of the Hebrew religion. Hindu beliefs, and a little Greek mythology thrown in for good measure and then, to ensure it's success, the early followers decided to market it to the Romans in addition to the Jews. This was one of the greatest marketing strategies of all time because as a Jewish cult religion, which is all that it was when Jesus was alive, it would have quickly disappeared. Marketing it to the Romans was a stroke of genius.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

And just look at Islam! A rip off masterpiece if ever there was one. With over a billion deluded souls following it, with the males believing they are the lords over the females.

The young physicist's talk was mumbo jumbo, by the way. Everything he said has been said before.
