Science Sheds New Light on the Higgs Boson: Is it Truly the  'God Particle'?

Science Sheds New Light on the Higgs Boson: Is it Truly the 'God Particle'?

By Ron G Anselm


"God is Creator of all things, and has revealed in Scripture the authentic account of His creative activity. In six days the Lord made "the heaven and the earth" and all living things upon the earth, and rested on the seventh day of that first week. Thus He established the Sabbath as a perpetual memorial of His completed creative work. The first man and woman were made in the image of God as the crowning work of Creation, given dominion over the world, and charged with responsibility to care for it. When the world was finished it was "very good," declaring the glory of God." Fundamental Beliefs, 6 (www.sdanet.org

There are some people that still have many questions as to does God really exist? There are others that have had many unexplainable things happen in their life including me and that has made them say, Yes, God does exist and what has happened to me has got to be the work of a higher power.

Yes, my friends God does exist and everything the Bible and scripture says is absolutely true. Scientists have expanded into the unknown once again and has taken the realm of science into a more biblical approach. NASA physicists have claimed to have found what is known as the "God Particle".

To learn more about this very interesting concept let`s first look at what the term "God Particle" means. Really this is something that has been theorized over a half century ago and the term "God Particle" refers to the fundamental to the creation of the universe, the Higgs Boson, or "God particle," is thought to create mass, making a "sticky" energy field that acts as a drag on other particles. Atom-smashing experiments confirmed this particle exists in a form that is similar to, but perhaps not exactly like, what was proposed. (www.sci-tech-today.com)

This is a subatomic particle and in science terms various subatomic particles are responsible for giving matter different properties. The main property is mass. Particles such as protons and neutrons have mass and other particles like photons do not have mass. So, what the Higgs Boson or God Particle does is act like the link that gives mass to matter. So, any types of properties in our universe that does not have mass will with the link to the God Particle.

Science and Physicists have been on the prowl for some time now to find the elusive pieces of the cosmic puzzle this is how the nickname "God Particle" came to life. The very brief and very simplified explanation of how the Higgs Boson, God Particle fits onto modern physics is a system known as the "Standard Model" of the particle that attempts to describe the forces, components, and reactions of the basic particle that make-up matter.

So, if you look at this brief explanation in laymen`s terms is basically means scientists are trying to find out the mechanics of how the particle works and how it fits into filling the gap on everything that has matter. The particle also extends out to dealing with atoms and their components and the pieces that compose or make-up other subatomic particles.

This standard model that Physicists made-up is not full proof and does have some major gaps in it. For instance, the model falls short of how gravity fits into the subatomic particle. Overall, the standard model is accurate for studying the God Particle and understanding physics and does continue to grow and improve.

The model also predicts that there are other certain elementary particles that are even smaller than protons and neutrons. So, it`s almost like the standard models is a still a work in process and is discovering new and interesting things about the evolution of the God Particle and how this mysterious particle may fit into the evolution of the physics when it comes to matter and mass.

The basic premise of the overall understanding of the God Particle refers to of how each subatomic particle contributes to the forces that cause all mater interactions. I basically tied together everything and anything that refers to the behavior of matter and how each particle interacts with one another. Scientists are still grasping the understanding of why some particles seem mass-less like photons and how other particles and very massive.

Using the standard model to study the God Particle predicts that this unique particle is the elementary link that produces the effects of mass. So, if scientists do confirm that this is how the God Particle acts then this would give the world of science a major milestone in the understanding of physics.

The "God particle" nickname actually arose when the book The God Particle: If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question? By Leon Lederman was published. Since then, it`s taken on a life of its own, in part because of the monumental questions about matter that the God particle might be able to answer. The man who first proposed the Higgs boson`s existence, Peter Higgs, isn`t all that amused by the nickname "God particle," as he`s an avowed atheist. All the same, there isn`t really any religious intention behind the nickname. (www.gotquestions.org)

So, Physicists and scientists continue to study the God Particle and learn everything there is to know about it and how it ties into the existence of the universe. Currently, efforts are underway in Switzerland to accelerate the study of this particle using the Large Hadron Collider, a particle accelerator.

As scientists continue to discover these wonderful and mysterious elements it makes God`s creation more and more impressive. It also gives us more insight and the appreciation for Gods awe-inspiring universe.

"Whether or not there is a "God particle,"we know this about Christ: For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible . . . all things were created by him and for him." (Colossians 1:16).
