Comment: Ugh..

(See in situ)


I'm sick of the term 'God Particle' - and I'm an ATHEIST.

This is a pretty amazing discovery, if they've finally cracked the Higgs boson, in the world of science it's huge. If the Big Bang Theory were a car engine, this is kind of like the spark plug that finally makes it.. 'work'.

But it doesn't really have anything to do with disproving a creator, and calling it the 'God Particle' detracts from the achievement and turns it into a pointless religious debate.

I loved what one of the scientists close to this said.. he thinks it should be called the 'God-damn Particle' - because it's been so god-damned hard to find. :)
