They've Found God

CERN has announced that they have found the Higgs Boson, which has been called "the God Particle" because it is the main building block of matter.

In BBC News, Paul Rincon quotes quantum physicist Stephen Hawking as saying, "It is a pity in a way because the great advances in physics have come from experiments that gave results we didn't expect." Hawking made a bet that the Higgs would never be discovered, and now says he is out $100.

All the matter we can see makes up just 4% of the universe--the rest is made up of mysterious dark matter and dark energy. The Higgs could be a beginning to understanding the 96% of the Universe that remains obscure.

Rincon quotes Peter Higgs, for whom the particle is named, as saying, "It's really an incredible thing that it's happened in my lifetime."

He quotes researcher Joe Incandela as saying, "We're on the frontier now, on the edge of a new exploration. This could be the only part of the story that's left, or we could open a whole new realm of discovery."

At, we're ALWAYS on the edge, and if that's where YOU are too, support this site!

This headline is rather misleading. The so-called "God particle" was originally called the "Goddamn particle", because of it's ellusiveness. While a huge breakthrough for sure, it is not the end of mystery. Physicist Nassim haramein suggests that because the universe is infinite and holographic we will continue to split particles infinetly. It makes a certain kind of logical sense from a mystical and hermetic worldview.

There is always something about the universe that I don't undastan and that they don't explain. If 96% of the universe is dark matter and energy why doesn't it block out stars occasionaly - and similar the light from the farthest away stars is like 13 billion years old but at that time everything was a lot closer together so why didn't it blast past us long ago. I mean the universe isn't expanding with near light speed rigth?
They never explain these things and they seem so illogical. Any cosmologists around?

Nope. Never can find a cosmetologist when you need one. Especially in the summer.

Nope. Never can find a cosmetologist when you need one. Especially in the summer. Speaking of which...If 96% of matter is dark, why is 20% of my hair grey? Let CERN figure out that one.

I am convinced this is the thing that was prophesied in The Key, what was supposed to have happened decades ago but was stymied by the Holocaust. With the discovery of the thing that gives matter mass, it's only a few years until we have a way to manipulate it, yielding anti-gravity technology. Then we can get up and over the coming troubles, but we need it to proliferate. Look to the Hutchison Effect. This man has already manipulated mass. The thing is, this will be the uniting science between spirituality and western rational discourse. We will learn how to squeeze the bozons out of matter, squeeze the 'water' out of that area of the universe to allow faster than light travel, but! what will become IMMEDIATELY clear is that manipulation of this kind will produce a transition between dimensions, and the other realm that is behind us is the Kingdom of God, the spiritual realm, the realm where everything is Light, and we will find new kinds of light and new kinds of water. This is truly a linch pin for our species, and it couldn't come at a more crucial time.
