Hey there Billy Bob, come on in. Sylvia is in the kitchen russlin’ up some fancy dip for the pork rinds. Heck I like ’em plain myself.
Sorry we had to meet here today. Old Tom snuck in the trailer last night. I gotta get that door fixed. Anyway, he’s been sleeping under the trailer and just is full of fleas.
I set myself down on that sofa this morning and took to scratchin’ like a crazy man. Had to clear out and set off one of them bombs to clean it out.
Anyway, Margaret read all about this “God” thing. Has somethin’ to do with science. I don’t get it much, but she said we better discuss it. She’s in a real tizzy.
So set yourself down. Oh, not there, she said not on that chair, it’s full of cat hair and she ain’t had time to clean it off yet.
So anyway, there’s this big thing they call a collider over in Switzerland or some place. And they are shooting atoms around real fast and they think they are about to find this little itty bitty thing. Margaret called it a God piece, or something like Hogs Boone part-e-cal. I don’t see what all the fuss is about, but Margo is fumin’ about those atheist foreign scientists messin’ with our God.
She’ll tell you all about it here.

I don’t know, this just seems like a bad use of this technology, trying to prove the big bang. Like all the time wasted with the Hubble looking at empty pieces of space trying to prove the big bang, when the time could have much better been spent actually viewing objects that might teach us something valuable.
What objects would those be Swamp head? I am looking up your nose and so far, nothing interesting there. There are lots of empty pieces though, so I guess I see you point.

Another question is, will anyone outside the field remotely understand the theories involved and what is “discovered”? What proof will the layman be able to see that there is anything real to this? How will he know that these scientists know what they are talking about? Without practical proofs and explanations this will all just seem as relevant as a bunch of nerds arguing whether zombies ate brains to stay “alive” or just because they were compelled to.
Yeah dude, if it’s not understandable to a rhesus monkey what good is it? Everybody knows that. So mind explaining to me how your microwave works?

Why don’t they just search for God,they could find Him with a simple prayer instead of all this expensive nonsense.
Yeah, you should write them and explain that. They could have had a V-8!

There will be no answer, just more questions
Dumb science! They never know when enough is enough do they?

Be careful where you tread, mister scientist man. The secular humanist viewpoint ends in tears, always has, always will because it tries to supplant God (over and over and over again).
The CERN facility is a modern day Tower of Babel, and we know how that ended.
Why you are so correct. I saw Isaac Newton in tears just the other day, and everyone knows that Albert Einstein cried at the drop of a hat. I also have heard that there are just too many languages being spoken at CERN. Nobody understands anybody!

@Grapes: How could finding this particle prove something positive about God? The article says they would prove the big bang theory if they indeed find the particle. That theory seems to be against God.
It SEEMS that you are a homo sapien sapien, but looks are often deceiving. Proof once again that you can walk and talk without functioning grey matter.

Scientists are looking for “God” in a particle? Truthfully, what they are actually looking for is an alternative to God. Men tend to find what they look for. If they don’t find exactly what they want, they will keep on looking or be forced to “redefine” what they do find to support their foregone conclusion, like global warming “scientists” did. Whatever they “find” will be hailed as the ultimate truth–if it fulfills their expectations. Their conclusions will be overly complex in detail, but basically simplistic in general.
Wait and see.
God exists all right, but not as a particle.
Pretty darn smart them scientists. Hey I think you have the makings of a first-class dissertation. Go ahead look that up and see what it means. I’m sure you can get published in Horse’s Ass Monthly.

I have decided – I do not exist.
Now lets see if the Frenches can prove I do.
Who are the Frenches? I frankly don’t think you do exist. I sure can’t see you. I think you burned up.

“In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
So let me get this sorta straight? Are you saying that the universe should have been created at the end? Man there would be no place to sit down dude. But I find there are a lot of angry people around the world. At last I know why!

Nobody is claiming that the God particle is God, what they are claiming is that it is what gives physical matter its physicalness, so to speak. It is the theoretical particle that gives mass mass and makes matter matter. It is not in any way supposed to change your view on God, its just a nick-name because it is the end-all-be-all of subatomic particles…
Are you insane? Give these people actual facts and their minds will overload! Can’t you see the steam coming out of their ears already?

Since this study has been funded by European tax dollars, I would like to make this point: How come scientists are given a free pass on developing anti-matter? Given the qualities anti-matter theoretically possesses I wonder why the EPA or environmentalists aren’t up in arms about this? I mean, we can’t drill for oil without millions of permits and bureaucrats, we can’t build bulk head without the wrath of the EPA, we can’t even exhale without offending them- yet antimatter can be developed unchecked???? Where was the vote for this. I think everyone should have a say about what they are doing in the dark cover of caves.
What are those qualities oh wise one? As to the millions of permits. Wrong kiddo. Only 987,322, last time I checked! You always want to vote on anything you don’t like. You never mention the word if you do. I vote that we vote about whether we should vote. And tell me more about the caves. Oh and be sure to tell me what hospital you work in. I’d like to avoid it if possible.
Well that’s it for this installment. As always, I remind you. These people have a legal right to vote. Scary ain’t it?

Best laugh I’ve had in ages! Gawd particle, this was hilarious. I do so enjoy it when the ignorant get ther panties in a bundle over a non issue. People just gotta hate on something or their day’s not complete.
Thanks SDS. my sole intent in doing this series is for the laugh factor. They are a hoot.
The state of religion these days (not to be confused with a state religion) has nothing to do with the basic teachings taught by Jesus. I bet He’s rolling over in his grave over where His church has come to,
I totally agree Hansi…we tend to use Jesus for our own purposes. Sad to say, but true.
Enjoyed this…. As for the anti-matter, don’t they realize we need anti-matter to create the warp drive? (Sorry to anyone who is not a Trekkie).
BTW, did you see now some scientists are creating some kind of semi-“life” in a test tube – they’ve put molecules together that can replicate themselves. Very simple RNA. Now THAT is scary. Shades of the Andromeda Strain.
The Blaze crowd apparently doesn’t do their homework with Star Trek. They figured all this stuff out ages ago! As to the “semi’life? wow…I think I heard a bit, but nothing very clear about it. They have found RNA strips I guess in some meteorites, which they now argue may have been the seeding agent for this planet along with “watery” meteorites.
