so, they shot engergy into a field and created matter, that's some crazy shiznit

Indeed it would be, if that were anything close to what they did, which it isn't.

It's called the "God Particle" due to a book by Leon Lederman that was originally going to be named "Goddamned Particle" for how elusive the particle had been to prove. Here's a linky. Nothing to do with any god. At all.

The particle all the sci-fi novels blame for creating portals to other dimensions.
good thing it's sci-fi

They found Higgs? Oh, good. I always get nervous when old people wander out of the assisted living facilities.

Higgs? Maybe..Proof of god? No. You can't prove what isn't-only what is.

Someone so old to say something so naive is sad; even infuriating.

Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started.
WAIT!
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history,
unraveling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!

so it was a pointless project to see what happens when you grind wheat between two stones? In sufficient quantities you get an explosion, but it's not controllable enough to work as a demolition tool. Wait, if we mix it with water and a few other ingredients we get... sliced bread!
I don't normally respond to trolls, but I've got a major case of PMT and you, sir, are an idiot

'What has it done to better our way of life?'

What did the theory of relativity do to better our way of life? What did the discovery of DNA do to better our way of life?

@drawman61

You're right, experimentation is completely and utterly useless. That's why all our technology, such as the computer you're typing on, appeared overnight sometime in the 60s.

And people go mad at the banks for wasting our money. Billions have been sunk into this pointless project. What has it done to better our way of life? Do they look at each other and say "Shall we go home now?"

Thanks for posting this and also, thanks for not calling it the "God Particle" in your description.

I think it's very important to note that it would be just as cool, and scientists would be just as excited (most of them, anyway) and just as awed, if the data find that Higgs *doesn't* exist! It would force all sorts of changes or tweaks in thought about matter (and mass, specifically) and that's super-exciting! But it's also cool because it shows something fundamentally different about science versus psuedo science. The idea that scientific thought can change and evolve as new data come is is a wonderful thing!

Not saying they *won't* find the HB, just extolling the greatness of properly applied scientific method.
