    “Higgs boson” just shows, as several have said, “god” isn’t necessary, not that some intelligent entity, or force, definitely non-corporial, and totally without “substance”, or form we can identify with, doesn’t exist. One thing it isn’t, a physical being that demands fealty from any species, and monitors every being and activity, while allowing murder, hate, war, crime, and arrogant species to persecute their own kind (and others), with “forgiveness”, or threats, at the end of the day.

    SAince when are Republicans interested in science?

    It says, “I am the light…”

    It’s an important scientific discovery — which means, as braindead noted, it is irrelevant to modern Republicans (Eisenhower and Nixon are spinning in their graves) — but forget the “God particle” hoopla.
    Science cannot prove or disprove the existence of God, though arguably can prove whether God is necessary for the creation of the universe as we know it. But if God exists outside the universe — as is the common belief of many — then once again it is irrelevant.
    It is a non-issue. Believe what you want — as long as it doesn’t contradict actual science, please. (That leaves out the creationists, the global warming denialists, etc.)

    I haven’t seen religious outcry over this.

    “Go away”, Exactly.
    Let scientists do the science.

    @Radish

    That would be the photon…

    Bravo. Wish this comment could be used a response to every ignorant (and they are all ignorant) religious response to the Higgs (and, for that matter, any other real science done by real scientists, with no need for magic or myth). It all goes back to LaPlace: “Sir, I had no need of that hypothesis.”

    Amen to that!

    The dumber the proselytizer, the more anthropomorphized God gets. If you think these scientists are actually meaning that a particle is God, you’re hopelessly misunderstanding the situation. But that’s why the world get parables.

    @braindead08

    That’s easy…only when they think that it supports their view. In this case, they think it may prove the existence of a creator god.

    As usual, they’re wrong. But probably won’t admit it.

    Very clever ’toon.

    “…Heisenberg has ruined science for all of us!”
    Not really. My neighbor is a theoretical physicist and quite exited about the “dataset”. I still kind of like microscopes and Bunsen burners as much as ever (though I’ve never had any practical use for either). Einstein worked without experiments.

    And WTH does that have to do with this ‘toon? It’s about science, not politics!

    ….so it got flagged.
