Posted on 07/04/2012 2:34:59 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
A progress report from the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator has declared that the Higgs boson, dubbed the God particle, has been found. The discovery of the new particle is a major step toward confirming the Standard Model used in modern physics.
Professor John Womersley said, They have discovered a particle consistent with the Higgs boson
That is confirmed...."

Things could get even more interesting if this particle turns out be a key to understanding dark matter and energy.
Would it be wrong to call something a hundred times more massive than a proton yet so extraordinarily elusive a form of “dark” matter itself?
More likely it’s one-upsmanship. The Tevatron team announced earlier that they had found collision data consistent with the presence of the Higgs Boson. The odds that the LHC team just happened to find data of direct evidence just a few days later are ridiculously high; they’re just doing this so the (much smaller) Tevatron can’t steal their thunder. The Tevatron has been shut down now for a couple of years, and is much less powerful; if a Tevatron is all that’s needed for major discoveries, it kind of makes the cost of the LHC unnecessary.

CERN physicists report strong evidence of Higgs boson (w/ live video from CERN)
Two independent teams at the world’s biggest atom smasher say they have both “observed” a new subatomic particle a boson that looks just like the one believed to give all matter in the universe size and shape.
Does matter really size ?.....or is it the motion of the Bosun that counts?
Puny human reason still worshiping the creation instead of the Creator. That’s not new. It’s the same old idolatry.
I believe in God and find this research quite consistent with that belief. In fact, it strengthens it.
The guy that was being interviewed said it was like smashing two small things we can't see together and producing an even smaller thing we can't see.
I think they're democrats ...
Yes, the headline writers have been somewhat ahead of the story I would say.
Actually, the Tevatron report says that they found evidence, but that the LHC would be needed to actually confirm and find it.
If the Higgs gives mass to all the other particles, what gives mass to the Higgs?
Yeah.. because celebrating the discovery of His Creation is a bad thing..
The answer to that one is only several more billion dollars of government grants away.
...Light Indeed !!! Here is a bit of light which will allow you to see more clearly. It seems that Charles Darwin once thought that he too could unravel Gods Fabric Of Life which in fact cannot be unraveled. That Darwin was brilliant and a true credit to the church is apparent,in that he eventually returned to God and the church and renounced all of his theories on evolution. His mission was scientific,but, his intent was to be drawn closer to God which is exactly what you see taking place once again within the scientific community.
Though the bulk of today’s scientist will adamantly reject any connection between their work and the search for God,this is precisely what you see, and the Beauty of this fact lies within their own theories and aspirations.
Relativity was explained to you eons ago and was never hidden,however,it was apparently rediscovered by another great mind of the time who was the father of data mining.
So once again,they bask in the light of yet another self anointed miracle even though their thimble of knowledge is even yet half full, which will forever leave their thirst for Earth Bound physics remaining to be quenched.
This makes about the zillonth time this has been posted over several days.
This tells me reading level is very low.
Give it a rest!!!!
And before this, it was posted on Drudge for at least a couple of days.
First time I saw it. And I’m a regular here.
ACLU will file suite to have “God” removed from this find... /s =.=
A lot of stories get reposted here every few HOURS. Some apparently just read the first screen of FR, even if they haven’t been to the site in days.
A good policy would be that if the original story is dated any later than the last 12 hours, do multiple creative searches of FR before posting.
“First time I saw it. And Im a regular here.”
A regular once a year?
So, is this what Hawking has been waiting for to "prove" that G-d wasn't necessary to create the universe from nothing?
Once a year? If you’ve never seen my many posts, you must be an occasional visitor.
G-d would, because “The foundation of all fouundations and pillar of all wisdom is to know that there is a First Existence from which all other existences come to be (Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Yesodei Hatora, Chapter 1, Halacha 1).” All the Higgs particle is is a tool that He uses to make all things constantly come into being ex nihilo, which is a greater miracle than the splitting of the Red Sea. Higgs is how, not who.
Ugh, sometimes having a background in Physics can be a curse, because this thought is keeping me awake...
Could a black hole be nothing more than a Higgs Boson condensate? If enough of them are packed together, do they fall into a degenerative state where the Higgs field can’t revert to a tachyonic field? I would think that such a condition would result in a VERY high, persistent, local mass density, like a black hole.
There. Now may I gan get to sleep...
