    I wish the media would stop referring to Higgs boson as the "God Particle". It's misleading and allows people who can barely spell physics to claim that there is proof of a magical creature called "god".
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Personally, I've seen more atheists argue that if the "god particle" exists that there is no God or creator

    Ignorance regarding the terminology can and does go both ways.

    Heh... Up until now, I thought they were referring to the Higg's bosom particle and were referring to Penny Higgs' breasts.

    Re: Scientists to unveil proof of ‘God particle’

    I wonder if the results will support a O(12) dimensional string theory (E7 Lie group), supporting the unification of QCD and quantum gravity? That would give us 2 sets of 4 dimensional spacetimes (each set has 3 spacial dimensions and 1 time dimension so O(12) has 2 time dimensions), or 8 of the 12 dimensions, plus 4 compactified dimensions representing some interesting qualities of any particle and/or field and their interactions. (truth, moral action, causality link, generative thought)

    I doubt it. In the fullness of time, we will finally come to accept the fact that gravity is not even a fundamental force of nature, but rather a side effect of a single force.

    ...that and ascribing to something as absurd as string theory just to make gravity fit into
    a universal paradigm.

    Yet the whole point of the Higgs mechanism is to give quantum fields mass, through their interaction with the Higgs field. So if you are talking about super-symmetries above GCD, then of course all 4 known forces are one force. So all forces are side effects of spontaneous symmetry breaking of a 12 dimensional Calabi-Yau knot.

    The math works, mostly, although O(12) hasn't been investigated thoroughly. That the math works is no small feat of psycho-spiritual magic.
