The “God” Particle

March 14, 2013

” ‘Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?…Who determined its measurements?  Surely you know!…Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?’ ” (Job 38: 4-7).

Physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research or CERN today announced that they have discovered a critical but elusive subatomic particle known as the Higgs boson.  The data was actually generated last year by the Large Hadron Collider, an atom smasher near Geneva, Switzerland.

The Higgs boson is considered so fundamental to an understanding of the way the material universe works that it is often called the “God” particle.  The particle is named after one of the six physicists who first proposed its existence.

This is a remarkable achievement, worthy of acknowledgement.  Man has struggled to understand his world since time immemorial.

God, however, it outside time and space.  He cannot be found under a microscope, quantified or dissected.  No mere material discovery can rule Him into or out of existence.  But when our eyes are opened by the gift of faith (Ps. 119: 18; Acts 26: 16), we can see evidence of Him everywhere.
