Looking for the Higgs Boson, the so-called ‘God Particle’, is Real Science unlike Man-Made Global Warming

Week in Review

Fascinating stuff.  Theoretical physics taking us back to God?  Perhaps (see The search for the God particle goes beyond mere physics by Michael Gerson posted 12/15/2011 on The Washington Post).

The God particle — really the Higgs boson — still resists confirmation, though scientists at the Large Hadron Collider recently reported “tantalizing hints” of its existence. They also reject the notion that their search has anything to do with God, which is only technically true.

Modern physics can explain just about everything, except why anything has mass. The Standard Model of physics, which emerged four decades ago, employs an elegant mathematical formula to account for most of the elemental forces in the universe. It correctly predicted the discovery of various leptons and quarks in the laboratory.

But the equation doesn’t explain gravity. So the Standard Model requires the existence of some other force that seized the massless particles produced by the Big Bang and sucked them into physicality. The detection of Higgs bosons would confirm this theory — which is why scientists are smashing protons into one another in a 17-mile round particle accelerator and picking through the subatomic wreckage.

The Standard Model of Physics emerged 4 decades ago.  That’s 40 years.  And still they’re testing it.  Trying to find something that should be there.  But may not.  The Higgs boson.  The so-called ‘God particle’.  Which would really tie everything together.  They haven’t found it yet.  But, the good scientists they are, these physicists are still trying.  After 40 years.  Using real scientific inquiry.  And always being skeptical.

This is tough science.  Science held to a much higher standard than man-made global warming ‘science’.  Where they simply skip the experimental.  And announce their theory as fact.  You have to admit it saves a lot of time.  And lets government get down to business.  Taxing and regulating industry based on scientifically unfounded man-made global warming to replenish empty state treasuries.

Interesting stuff.  Be sure to read full Washington post article.  And follow the link to the Standard Model of physics.  Just because it’s so fascinating.  And really makes you think of the bigger picture.  And the tinier one, too.
