DOES THE ‘GOD PARTICLE’ FOREBODE DOOM TO THE UNIVERSE? – 21 Feb 2013

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.

GOD PARTICLE FOUND? – 4 July 2012

Speaking to a packed audience Wednesday morning in Geneva, CERN director general Rolf Heuer confirmed that two separate teams working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are more than 99 percent certain they’ve discovered the Higgs boson, aka the God particleor at the least a brand-new particle exactly where they expected the Higgs to be.

The long-sought particle may complete the standard model of physics by explaining why objects in our universe have massand in so doing, why galaxies, planets, and even humans have any right to exist.

“We have a discovery,” Heuer said at the seminar. “We have observed a new particle consistent with a Higgs boson.”  (National Geographic, July 4, 2012)

It is a fascinating testimony to the greatness of God that $10 billion have been spent to build a huge and complex machine to discover the smallest of ‘things’ that scientists call the Higgs bosun particle, or the “God particle”.  After about 40 years of predicting such a thing, the discovery has seemingly been made.

It is written in the book of Daniel in the Bible that in the latter days knowledge will increase (Dan 12:4).  (What about understanding and wisdom?)  This discovery certainly is an interesting find, and takes us to the outer and inner limits of what can be known of the unseen visible world.  True science will confirm truth which the Word of God has already spoken:

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” (Heb 11:3)

” For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” (Col 1:16-17)

“who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Heb 1:3)

All of these verses speak of Jesus Christ being the Creator of the “God particle”!  Praise the Lord, and give glory to Him!
