I wonder want sort of weapons they will come up with?


It's not going to make LW any quicker in the foreseeable future!

It's all very suspiciously worded, akin to saying real meat like substance found in sausages

Old news. We've had Higgs-Bosons at our church for years. We can't have mass without them! :D

That's why it's called god particle, it's responsible for mass.

Being supposedly responsible for mass I assume it should generate quite a lot of pull ! It'd be the ultimate chick magnet ... were it not for it's fleeting lifespan :D

I think there's probably going to be a gamut of them and the uncertainty relates to the half dozen or so H-B particles already proposed.

- Science being under duress almost these days and not entirely from it's typical adversaries. I mean the H-B particle was proposed 48 years ago so it most likely isn't an ideological rush to disprove the greenhouse effect.

... Mass is rarely a chick magnet and Lurv is all about fleeting lifespans :D

But his editor decided that the title was too controversial and convinced Lederman to change the title to “The God Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, What is the Question?”

Yeah! because God particle is less controversial :). Thanks for the link, Steve.
