Eso’s Chronicles 147
God Now in Government Pocket’, a Force Majeure

The scientific community has, at last, reached the point where it presents itself as a collective of The Dead, that is, as a group of people making significant salaries (as compared to taxi drivers) who have come to a wall with small holes punched in it at eye ball level. The holes are just big enough for scientists to stick their scientific noses into.
There is a small white label glued to the wall above every hole with this legend: “Behind this hole is the Higgs Boson or so-called God Particle . Put your nose into the hole and twist your head clockwise! You will know you have succeeded in getting to the bottom of the Truth when you see a tomato.”

It is true that most scientists have been shy and humble about calling God God. Some do  not say the word at all. However, some have made a compromise, and have agreed to call God a “Higgs boson”, which these ‘some’ now claim to have discovered and call “a God particle”. The reader is strongly urged to read the links to be certain that I am not making anything up. Here is one of the more important paragraphs from the text  by CBC News of Friday, March 15, 2013:.

Scientists said Thursday that they believe they have discovered the elusive Higgs boson particle, sometimes called "the God particle," that is theorized to be a crucial building block of the universe....”

There are several things worth noticing about this paragraph.

Scientists have been reluctant to call God God (because most of them do not believe that God exists), and, therefore, not to appear to the public completely ‘uncertain’ of what they believe is or is not true, they renamed God for a ‘Higgs boson’, which some have dubbed to be ‘a God particle’. Yet even with this qualification, scientists are unable to get any closer to science, because to this latest discovery, some lay scientist, a science writer, has added the word ‘elusive’.  From the same news release:

“….According to a release from the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, determining whether the discovery was in fact the Higgs boson depends on its quantum properties and how it interacts with other particles. After going through their entire data set from 2012, the results "strongly indicate" they have found the elusive particle….

Or have they?

Up to now, scientific proof was believed to be proof beyond a doubt. However, when it comes to the discovery of the Higgs Boson, all that CERN scientists will admit to is  that there is a “strong indication” that they have. Unfortunately, a “strong indication” is not something one is advised to bet on. One may not say that a nuclear bomb has been invented until it is exploded. God knows what the government will do with ‘a God particle’ in their military arsenal.

Which fact makes this reader turn into an unbeliever and believe that Higgs Boson is not a particle of God, and that God will not discover itself any more readily for scientists than it discovered itself for saints. In short, no matter how many billions of  Euros are spent on building a ‘God discovery’ machine [Large Hadron Collider (LHC)], the machine does not justify sacrificing the lives that 10 billion Euros invested in medications can save. Even if there is a “strong indication” that scientists have discovered a Higgs Boson, whatever it is they have discovered, is not God. Maybe scientists are claiming the discovery because the secular government, their sponsor, an institution continually losing authority in the public eye, is urging them to make such a claim for reasons of its own.

It would mean a theological and secular Revolution, both,  if God came in parts and particles.

My skepticisms gains some support from the secular world of the Russians. According to a write up given at the internet site of ‘RT’ (Russian Times) :

“Latest analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider proves that the Higgs boson actually exists.”

In other words, for the Russian secularists (surely the Russian media is secularist) a ‘strong indication’ equals ‘proof’. The Russians see in the words of CERN physicist Joe Incandela a strong indication that he speaks as an apostle of God. Says the physicist:

“The preliminary results with the full 2012 data set are magnificent and to me it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson, though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is,” said physicist Joe Incandela, the spokesperson for CERN’s Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) team.

RT concludes: Although it might take years for the discovery to be fully confirmed and fleshed out, one cannot expect anything more sensational from the LHC team in the coming two years, as the 27-kilometer collider has been shut down for maintenance until the early 2015.

In short, among the things being “fleshed out” will be a government claim on God. While the God machine is located in Switzerland, a country that has played a neutral political role, so far,  the governments of the U.S., Russia, China, North Korea, Israel, and others, will claim to have the authority of God. The claim to the discovery of the Higgs boson will prove to be a scientific lie, an overreach of scientific authority, and likely a beginning of the end for science.
