The capture of the most wanted sub-atomic particle in physics last summer was named as Science journal’s Breakthrough of the Year 2012. (see earlier post on the ‘God Particle’: https://www.streamsinthenegev.com/latest-news/god-particle-found-4-july-2012-2/ )
Now scientists are speculating that the Higgs bosun could also be a cause for the eventual destruction of the universe — should the sun not burn out first.
“It may be that the universe we live in is inherently unstable,” said Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. “And at some point, billions of years from now, it’s all going to get wiped out.
Scientists refer to last year’s discovery as a Higgs boson-like particle, since they’re still working to confirm it really is the elusive particle. The Higgs boson, also called the “God particle”, is believed to give all objects mass. But Lykken says it could also spell doom for the universe.”
We see again that the Bible and Science can be reconciled. True science — knowledge — will confirm what is written for our instruction and admonition in the Scriptures. But, the problem with “Science” is that, while it has much of the data right, too often the scientists do not interpret the data correctly so as to give us the true knowledge for understanding of what it really means, and the wisdom for living in the truth.
