Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland claim to have found the Higgs boson, the so-called “God particle” that has eluded physicists for nearly half a century in their quest to confirm the standard model of particle physics.
Researchers were intent on finding the Higgs boson because it theoretically would allow matter to clump together after the big bang. Without the help of this subatomic particle, all other particles would be whizzing around forever at the speed of light.
But this discovery still doesn’t explain the origin of matter.
With the new high-speed collider, scientists can now detect the Higgs boson regularly and repeatably. That’s how experimental science works. It helps us understand the way God upholds His creation, but not where it came from. We need God’s Word for that.
