If you were to ask people 35,000 years ago if we were smarter I bet they would say yes. I admit yes our brains have not changed but if you think that there is no difference in intelligence, you sir, are sadly mistaken.
We have changed quite a bit from waddling into Europe, we have math, science and culture. We have developed culture where rather than just one opinion we can share and see others opinions as well.
The theoretical Higgs Boson doesn't "power everything" in this Universe; rather, this particle is supposed to be responsible for giving mass to matter. Without mass, this Universe wouldn't even exist — no stars, no planets, no galaxies, no nothing.
Problem is, researchers have never been able to isolate and identify a single Higgs Boson. Ever. This particle only exists on paper.
Religious people look around at this marvelous Universe and murmur, "Only a God could have created all this!"
What's funny is that scientists look around at this marvelous Universe and murmur, "Only the Higgs Boson could have created all this!"
Both God and the Higgs Boson are theoretical concepts — they both exist only on paper, depending on who you ask. And the Large Hadron Collider hasn't revealed the existence of the Higgs Boson yet — which means Science is no different than Religion. Both Science and Religion are based on Faith in invisible and immeasurable entities.
