Scientists discover new subatomic particle at the center of everything

• Brian Vastag and Joel Achenbach, Washington Post
 Dubbed the Higgs boson — or the “God particle,” to the chagrin of scientists — the particle is thought to create a sort of force field that permeates the universe, imbuing everything that we can see and touch with the fundamental property known as mass.

“To the layman I now say, I think we have it,” said Rolf-Dieter Heuer, director general of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, immediately after physicists presented compelling evidence for the new particle at a seminar in Geneva.

“Do you agree?” he asked the several hundred scientists packing CERN’s main auditorium.

Of course, when it comes to sub, sub-atomic particles, how do they know for sure that they only discovered it, and didn't create it? If they created it, what did they make the thing for? Have you ever noticed that virtually all of the scientific inventions and discoveries that are in use, are being used to some extent to destroy people?

Now let's see. They said: "Dubbed the Higgs boson — or the 'God particle ... .'" The Bible says that there is only 1 God. Does this mean that there is only 1 Higgs boson in the whole Universe? If there's more than 1, they haven't gotten to the bottom line yet.
