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.
