If we prove that the God Particle exists, will it vanish in a puff of logic?
Jokes aside, I was excited to hear that they are close to confirming its existence. Of course it's not set in stone and 99.9% probability is pretty
darn high but still not the 100%. But then again, what is 100% in this field of science?
For those of you saying that the Higgs Boson is an atom, it is not. It's what gives atoms mass, otherwise all atoms would be traveling at the speed
To quote Hinchliffe:
A Higgs boson is an excitation - a fleeting, grainy representation - of the Higgs field, which extends throughout space and gives all other
particles their mass.
However, calling it the "God" particle is quite ironic because originally it was meant as "Can't find the GODdamn particle", and now it's being
understood that the theories may in fact be correct and it is the cause of all life as we know it. However, don't confusing this as the "all
mighty", just because this particle exist, it doesn't disprove any religion, only reinforces the true mystery and beauty of nature.
