Have you ever seen a young boy take apart a radio and try to put it back together without the manual? Well it may appear to some that this is what scientists are trying to do with the universe. Scientists believe that the Higgs boson, named after the physicist Peter Higgs, is responsible for the big bang that created the universe. They believe that evidence that the Higgs boson really exists is important for the current understanding of how the universe works, where it came from and where it is headed in the future.
According to an article published by the International Science Times on March 14, recently scientists announced that the particle, detected at the Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle-smasher, looks even more like the Higgs boson. “The Higgs boson is associated with the reason that everything in the universe -- from humans to planets to galaxies -- have mass. The particle is a component of something called the Higgs field, which permeates our universe said Brian Greene,” theoretical physicist at Columbia University. It is equally interesting that the Bible says something very similar in Genesis that an “active force” went “to and fro” the earth and was instrumental if not responsible for the formation of mass. Could the Higgs boson be the scientific name for this same force or a subatomic particle of it?
It has not been easy to discover the fundamental structure of the universe. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has been researching this for 50 years and with the help of a $10 billion atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, they believe that they have been able to discover the God particle. The Large Hadron Collider is located beneath the Swiss-French border.
According to CNN, “detecting the Higgs boson takes a lot of particle collisions -- there's only one observed event in every trillion proton-proton collisions, CERN said.” In the past these particle collisions were not able to produce a large amount of mass and this has substantiated the costs of the Large Hadron accelerator, the world’s highest energy particle accelerator. Ironically it seems that the amount of powerful energy contained in the Higgs boson particle is also what is needed to prove its existence. And here again we are reminded in the Bible (our manual) of the source of dynamic energy to which unfortunately scientists are not allowed to be hard wired to.
Not to discredit any of the recent scientific discoveries about the universe expanding which has left us in complete awe attempting to imagine the unimaginable. In fact many engineers, technicians and inventors learned basic concepts to spearhead them on to their professions by taking things apart and putting them back together. We are thankful that someone is doing this research. But why can’t we approach it as we do the Mona Lisa? We don’t question if Leonardo da Vinci painted it, we research to be amazed at how he did it.
