Theology and philosophy must take cognizance of Higgs-Bosson : God Particle. Your opinion please.
In your opinion should theology and philosophy take cognizance of existence of Higgs-Bosson i.e. God Particle?
It's premature to ponder that. There is as yet no conclusion to the results of the CERN experiment. That evidence of a Higgs boson has been found is speculative, at least at this point. The researchers call it possible, no more.
Physicists themselves dislike the phrase "god particle." It is not used in scientific journals, and they consider it grossly misleading, a sensationalist exaggeration. Its origin is an equally sensationalist book published in the nineties and generally viewed as more science fiction than science.
No not really. Searching for the Higgs Boson is purely a scientific endeavour. It's not as if the patterns traced by particles after they have been smashed together are going to form a crucifix or some other religious symbol.

When the mainstream media labeled or nicknamed the Higgs boson, "God particle" scientists where aghast. Peter Higgs himself (one of the 6 physicists who in 1964 proposed the mechanism that suggested the existence of such a particle) said that labeling the Higgs boson the "God...

How would the confirmation of the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle change our world?Other than just confirming a theory, when the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle is discovered, if it exists, how is that going to affect new innovation? Will it lead to new advances in health or technology, including...

What exactly is the Higgs boson and how does it work?Yesterday, in Geneva, Switzerand, at a CERN conference, a world-wide physicists organization announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. Can someone explain what this is in layman terms and why it is so significant to the world of physics?

Did Protons In The Large Hadron Collider Higgs-Bosun GOD-Particle Experiment Trace A Perfect Circle?The mechanism that governs the functions of the Large Hadron Collider involves 930 electromagnets placed equidistant from one another lining the inner walls of the LHC. That is indicative that the...

Do you think CERN will find the Higgs Boson?I sometimes wonder if sub-atomic black holes might explain a lot. Maybe they emit higgs bosons... or at least virtual particles. I don't know. Here's a link about the so-called "God Particle":...
