Scientists at Cern will announce that the elusive Higgs boson 'God Particle' has been found at a press conference next week,





If it has been found at a press conference next week, haven't they been looking in the wrong place all this time?

Disprove Religion or God?

I can't help but be wary that this will just be another hot air announcement from these folk. I love the project, but every time they claim to have found their Higgs boson particle, it turns out they just found more implications that it might eventually be there.

Not much to say about this except what I seem to be saying about all scientific discoveries and developments these days, namely

Exciting times to live in...

How does it affect Hindus and the like? It strengthens Shinto imo

I hope it is true and we can finally unite the various theories & it starts a positive process to finally put religion to bed except for those who need it as a mental or emotional crutch.

But somehow I think we'll shortly find it's not quite as "ultimate" as we thought!

This just verifies that we are perhaps on the right track to understanding how our universe operates



I'm rather dissapointed.
I was hoping that they wouldnt find it, but instead find something way more unexpectedly interesting.
The assumption has been for quite a long time now that the Higgs exists, and all sorts of theories, studies and late night speculative thinking has been done based on this expected truth. Something unexpected would open up a new branch of imagination.

Give it time... In science one thing always leads to another.

bet your bottom dollar on that...the military will control it and the corporations will be allowed to profit from it.

everyone can just eat their hearts out.

its all about power and superiority and domination.

Some people in this thread clearly do not understand the importance of this discovery. My god people, this is huge news if its true!

Well they might not find it, but we may be told that they have...

Nah, I'm sure they'll be honest - I'll keep an eye on the news. Beyond the science it could be interesting for the religion debate, could also be a can of worms that we may never hear the end of now until we die (like 'Teh War On Teh Terror'). I wouldn't want its discovery to destroy people's belief, but any further evidence to support the fact a bearded man (or three headed elephant man or a turban wearing man etc) didn't just point his finger at a planet and "then there was life" - is a good thing in my books


A lot of the scientists don't seem to know what the implications of finding it are, so no idea how in the hell I'm supposed to fathom such info. But it's fun how all the info and websites give these funny little "hints" about what it could mean. For me they are very exciting tidbits, but they're tidbits that are still too vague to actually get excited about.

Well cern came out with neutrinos faster than the speed of light but turned out to be the opera had a faulty fiber optic timing system. hopefully they have it right this time , as the implications would be monumental.
(edit) Otherwise i might say something doesn't smell right

To be fair to the guys at CERN, when the faster than light anomaly occurred they doubted their findings and invited the scientific community to work out where they'd gone wrong. Regarding Higgs - Boson, they're not claiming anything conclusively yet.

Man....soon as saw that headline my heart started racing a I started breathing faster and then.....




Five leading theoretical physicists have been invited to the event on Wednesday - sparking speculation that the particle has been discovered.


Sparking speculation...what the....?


That's like having a pretty girl (you've been staring at all night) smile and wave you over

....only to find out she was waving at someone behind you........

i am willing to bet that anything they find has been found previously , i am sure military control is their prior them releasing the information to the public , weapons weapons weapons!



Yep they did in 2036.... lets hope the right side gets the technology 1st in our worldline.

I was reading up on the Higgs Boson a little while ago, and found this amusing reference to it's nickname The God Particle

Why is the Higgs boson called the "God particle?" The popular nickname for the elusive particle was created for the title of a book by Nobel Prize winning physicist Leon Lederman -- reportedly against his will, as Lederman has said he wanted to call it the "Goddamn Particle" because "nobody could find the thing."

It does a lot for us. Now that they found it they will start boosting up their salaries and expand their experimentation to acquire all sorts of money indirectly from us. The donations they get from big business don't cost big business a cent, it is passed onto us the consumer. The money they get from governments doesn't cost the government a cent because the taxpayers foot the bill. See, we are getting something out of this. We are getting to pay for it.

Calling it the god particle is pathetic,it looks like this exists...god and fantasy land....do not

Theoretical physicists are "real" physicists. They just work on theoretical models focusing on synthesis between large scale models, theories and ideas. Mathematical physicists use math to study formal problems in physics, and practical or applied physicists use the data generated by the theorists, the mathematicians and the computational physicists to create real world advances in technology and engineering. They are all physicists; none are just pretending to do physics, or waiting for the approval to do "actual" physics.

Apologies if I muddled any of this; this is just a kind of high level overview in simplified language, and there is always a chance I might have botched it.
