God created man. Man created Watson. Watson went on to crush man on the TV game show "Jeopardy!" But Watson hasn't declared itself God ... yet. For now, the IBM-created device is reveling in its $77,147 haul after blowing away former "Jeopardy!" champions Ken Jennings, left, and Brad Rutter. For a ratings ploy that made the 27th season of "Jeopardy!'s" current run a headline grabber, it's a hit. For a snapshot of the coming battle of humans versus the machines, we give this one a terrified miss.
