Hints That 'God Particle' May Exist

Postby Lordieth » Tue Dec 13, 2011 7:19 am

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16116230

New data is being unveiled that may cast new light on the Higgs Boson, aka the 'God Particle', suspected of being the 'fundamental' particle responsible for mass. This mass would have been obtained as the Universe began, and the newly formed fundamental particles passed through the 'Higgs Field', where they obtained these elusive Bosons and therefore mass.

Evidence for or against the Higgs Boson would be a monumental discovery. Thoughts?

This is a massive leap forward in our understanding of the universe. If they do find it, I'll be very glad. Another great mystery cracked.

Do you think there is One True God Particle, or do you think there is a pantheon of god particles out there? And if the latter, do you think the God Particle of Thunder has a tiny little hammer? :unsure:

As for the term "god particle" good to emphasise importance of higgs boson,bad because it makes it sound all-powerful,it helps gravitons exist only and makes sure whales get crushed on beaches from their weight.

Definitely a pantheon of god particles.

I bet the gods are just trolling us with these particles and are laughing their arse off because of the human race now.

They should call it the Tehuty particle to be honest.. *cough cough*

"Gods"? Ah yes, because secretly, every eagle is Zeus in disguise. Apollo pulls the sun around with his chariot, and the sky rumbles if we disagree with Zeus.

Agreed, I wish to become a priest for the God Particle of Thunder.

ALL HAIL LITTLE HAMMERS.

Though to be on topic, this is serious business. This could make or break this theory and if it is proven correct would finally solve another of the universes mysteries

Of course not, they're gods. Tasks like that are none of their concern.

And yes, I wonder what the outcome of all this research will be...

Without mass, particles would just whizz around at the speed of light and matter would not have formed. The nickname is just a way of saying it's vital to our very existence (if it exists).

Good point! Actually, I read/heard/imagined that the Higgs Boson may break up into more particles. Could this "HB" actually be the forehead of Zeus, from whence sprang all gods??? :p
