My only question at this point would be...just who made the particle(s)?

GENEVA (AP) - Physicists said Thursday they are now confident they have discovered a crucial subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson - a major discovery that will go a long ways toward helping them explain why the universe is the way it is.

They made the statement following study of the data gathered last year from the world's largest atom-smasher, which lies beneath the Swiss-French border outside Geneva. The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, said that what they found last year was, indeed, a version of what is popularly referred to as the "God particle."

Joe Incandela, who heads one of the two main teams at CERN that each involve several thousand scientists, said in a statement that "it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is."

The long-theorized subatomic particle would explain why matter has mass and has been considered a missing cornerstone of physics.

Last July, scientists with the world's largest atom-smasher announced finding a particle they described as Higgs-like.

They spend alot of time, effort, and a whole lot of money to try and disprove something and they have never been able to.
What should that tell them if they are supposed to be so smart.

Give up, There is a God and He did create all of this! Just accept the facts and move on.

Science seems to scare/bother a lot of folks. Regardless of any religious beliefs, the universe operates in many ways that can be explained. Superstitions cannot be proven so people can believe whatever they want.


This is correct, but also remember that on the other hand, there are many things that people believe and accept as scientific "fact" are merely theories, held up by other theories, and the list goes on. Science rarely "proves" anything, but it often "supports" things. For this reason, science truly is a religion to many people. But there are many things in the universe that cannot be explained, and never will be.

Boy, that's a swell attitude. If Newton, Einstein, Pasteur, Copernicus, Darwin, Da Vinci and a few other individuals had followed that philosophy, we might still be living in the Dark Ages.

It is shortsighted and possibly a bit self indulgent to think that the motivating factor behind science is to disprove the notion of God. I would think to the contrary: the more you understand about the universe and its inner workings, the more you understand about God. At the very least, it is of no more threat to religion than understanding that the Earth is not the center of the universe, how gravity works, the practice of Alchemy, advanced technology, mico biology, biology in general, understanding bacteria, medical treatment, nano technology, etc (the list goes on), all of which benefit every member of this forum in direct and indirect manners without suffering the loss of a single ounce of faith.

The term the "God Particle" is not even a scientific name. That's just what the press calls it because it is more explanatory than the "Higgs Boson." This is a (missing link) cornerstone of physics that Eisenstein was onto. It is a big deal.

There have been a few times i've had someone ask me , "how do you know God is real?"
My answer is always the same , I tell them to come hunting with me one morning and watch the world wake up , then ask me the same question , lol.
That's my answer when i'm asked that question , but thet can never answer me when I ask them how they dont believe in God.
