Has anyone else noticed that since about 2 months instead of new articles (in CNN, NYT, ect. ) refering to the Higgs boson as, well, a boson or any of the other scientifically appropriate names, they have been calling it a "god particle".

I don't get this at all. Why would a particle that proves teh standard model be a god particle? because its godly because it has been hard to find ( there but no proof?, like god?)

this sort of annoys me, it is like they are trying to puch a christian-scientist conflict in any way possible.

____ My experience with Bosensmates was if you went into the shady area of port found a HO house, Shouted out " Higgs get back to the ship we are getting underway" he will show up right away.

Understanding what gives particles mass is commonly believed to be the the key to achieving a "whole new level " of understanding of the universe - a godlike degree of wisdom, if you will.

This is nothing to do with any "christian-scientist conflict" - please feel free to pick any god you want... Kali might be an appropriate choice, particularly in her aspect as Bhavatarini (literally "redeemer of the universe").
