I think you have this backwards: it's called the God particle not because it proves God but because it explains more of 'the gaps' that God is assumed to fill.So my point did not come over.
What I say is that at CERN they did not
prove the Higgs Boson exists.
They showed that the possibility that
what they measure is a random
occurrence, is less than 5 sigma.
1 in 3.5 million aprox.
So what they measured is not that
something exists, they measured
that it is unlikely that it doesn;t exist
because of what they see.
And to the people they claim it exists.
Now they believe that it exists and
they start building new houses upon
this belief. If they get results they
know that they were correct. Only
I do the same thing here.
And you call it religion.
What is your 'judgement' for me?The same as the judgement for me.
Once upon a time long ago, there
was a man and he lived close to
the equator. There were rumours
that water could exist in another
crystallized state, however nobody
had ever seen this.
The man grew old and gave up
on this myth, prayed to God and
complained: God it must be a false
rumour this hard water thing.
One day later for the brief period of
one minute, hailstones came falling
from the sky and the man had
several ice hailstones in his hands.
To his astonishment the hailstones
transformed in his hands to water.
He believed now. Water can also
be crystallized for some reason he
did not understand.
Several days later he remembered
what happened, but he was not
sure if it really happened. If the
crystals that he had in his hands
were actually made from the water
or maybe they were made of
something else. Why did they
disappear? Maybe he lost a small
detail, everything went so quick.
If only he could see it again.
He started to doubt that if what he
had seen was not an illusion.
He asked his neighbour and the
neighbour had seen nothing. The
neighbour was more interested
in tonight's monkey show.
Finally he decided that this minute
of his life he must have had a
psychosis. Probably the hope to
see a myth become reality, had
wacked his mind to the point of
creating this illusion.
So it is with me, my faith must
constantly be fed, because if not
I stop believing.
