    Why did Dr Higgs dislike it when others  named  the Higgs Boson the "God Particle"?

    Dr Higgs, who theorized the Higgs Boson particle, did not want the name "God Particle" used!

    Because "God Particle" has a religious connotation.  And the existence of the Higgs Boson particle is a test of a scientific theory.

    It has nothing to do with religion. It was named like that because "Nobody knows about it and each one had their own interpretation", similar to concept of god. Not a single religion or God has anything to do with it. If you understand the concept behind the particle, you'll see how funny it is that people are misunderstood with name of particle.
