  • Yes, he will.

    The Higgs Boson does indeed disprove god. Then again, I would argue that anyone with half a brain can disprove god by realizing that he does not exist. As someone wise once said, religion is the opiate of the masses, and it is something that is for the weak minded.

  • Nicknamed the "God particle" for a reason.

    The Higgs Boson is the creation of all life and there are theories as to how it was created and how this particle created our universe and all life thereafter. No "god" is needed. There is also other evidence in science that disproves creationism/ID and "god(s)". Science always wins with evidence.

  • What made what made us, or how did we become material?

    We know how matter is made except for the mass bit. This observation allows us to understand the matter of mass. No need to plunk those coins in the plate anymore. We will all die. And our matter will go on to some other forms. Our mass will too. So there is nothing left for the Old Testament demon to covet, smite or otherwise devour.

  • Yes it does

    There is already so much science that all ready disproves religion available, this tops it off even further. It gives the answer to so many Christians that question that "everything came just came to be", and input god as their answer for the un-explainable. Well now it can be explained.

  • The Higgs boson does not disprove God

    The Higgs boson does not disprove God or any of the theories that go along with assuming the God is real. The Higgs boson, as I understand it, is the basis for creating all matter in the universe. Claiming that the Higgs boson disproves God is completely irrational, saying that is like claiming atoms disprove God because they are the smallest amount of an element possible and together they make up everything we see. The Higgs boson still needs to have been created in order to make up matter and the explanation of this creation is, as I believe, supernatural creation.
    The term supernatural means outside of nature. In order for there to have been a first cause, there must have been something to put into motion that first cause. The one that puts into motion that first cause must be outside that first cause and must have created that first cause, thus being exempt from the rules of his creation. Take a video game for example. A person had to create computers in order for there to be videogames. In order for there to be video games there must also be a coding language to make up the simulations of the game and everything it contains. The creator of the videogame is outside of the game itself and, in addition, can add or redact anything within the game, making him a sort of god to that video game. Our reality is the same way. There cannot be an infinite number of causes happening over and over in a loop because then there would be no first cause and thus no reality. This fact means that there must be a first cause and something outside of reality, supernatural, to have put that cause into motion.
    Take for instance, a watch. If a watch washes up on a beach, then that watch had to have been made by something. It would be impossible for that watch to come into existence by accident. This means that if something is obviously designed, then it has a designer. Reality in itself is so perfectly balanced that it could not have come into existence from nothing or from an infinite number of backwards causes in a loop.

  • Two Higgs Bosons? No Evidence for That rofmattstrassler.com/2012/12/17/two-higgs-bosons-no-evidence-for-that/

    God is a manmade Concept, which has already been proven; i.e. God does not Exist.
    ======================================================================
    There is no proof whatsoever about the Higgs Bosons, just wild speculation. And, the measurements taken vary by more than 2 standard deviations; and, it is even possible that the equipment we currently have is not cable of measuring accurately the particles observed. These colliders are a huge total waste of money and scientists. They are providing no benefit to society whatsoever.
    ===========================================================
    “This, in turn, brings us to another question: Why some particles cannot be detected directly?
    There might be a number of reasons for that: a) our detectors are not good enough b) particles are too short-living (which is in fact equivalent to reason (a)) c) for some "fundamental" reasons (usually quantum mechanical arguments are used) Frankly speaking, I do not know for what reason, for instance, W and Z bozons cannot be detected directly. And last (but not least): I admit that possibly those non-"real" particles are not in fact particles as per rigorous definition (field configurations that realize irreducible representations of Poincare group in Minkowsky space or something like that). I admit that they might be "shattered fragments" of "real" particles.” “But modern physics is unable to establish that. Because our models were developed based on collider-type experiments (i.e. "real" particles in and out of the black box). And all models are based on "black box" logic - quantization. Do you know what quantization is? it is a set of numbers connecting inputs and ouptuts of the black box. Vicious circle. That's why these models are useless for identifying the properties of the isolated and not moving "real" particles (mass, charge ets.).”

    3. Why is the LHC like a Werewolf?
    Both are affected by the Moon! Like tides in the ocean, the ground is also subject to lunar attraction. When the Moon is full, the Earth's crust actually rises about 25 cm (9.8 in). This movement causes the circumference of the LHC to vary by (a whopping) 1 mm (out of 27 km, a factor of 0.000004%) ) but that's enough so that physicists need to take it into account.

    ==================================================================
    So depending on when you run the experiments in the LHC, the results will vary, and have to be taken into account. Also, the LHC’s magnets have to be cooled down to colder than outer space minus 271.3 C. So, the results can be affected by how cold. Who knows what else affects the outcome of the collisions. This is a total joke. A very expensive joke.

    =================================================================================
    The cost is over $10 billion to build it; the experiments cost about 5.5 billion per year. Computing power about 286 million annually. Finding the Higgs boson ran about $13.25 billion; but, they haven’t proven that it exists, just wild speculation.

  • Not necessarily, no.

    If the Higgs Boson is found, it means that we have discovered a particle that is the building block for pretty much everything in existence. There would still be questions as to where that particle came from, though, and I think that some religious types might claim that God created the particle and thus DID guide the universe into creation.

  • Well it should, but...

    This may sound offensive, but religious people wouldn't care if there was a breakthrough which explicitly proves that there isn't a god, they are simply too stubborn, take my good friend, "Mr X", I asked him if he would still believe in god if humanity for certain, proved that god didn't exist, when asked why he said that he would "never give up his beliefs".

  • It really doesn't

    The existence of the Higgs boson in no way disproves God. It simply explains how mass is created. It doesn't explain where the particle came from, nor does it address God at all. Hawking already proved the need for a creator, and the "God particle" does not go against this theory.

  • Not huge into religion, but I'd say no

    From what I know Higgs Boson holds particles together, but still doesn't explain the origin of those particles. Explain the origin of the higgs boson would probably be the next step to disproving god lol... Even then the question of where did that come from would come forth. Just saying.

  • It could be God

    No one follows God because their not sure where the universe came from, they follow God because they believe thats where the universe came from. The higgs boson would prove God as much as it disproves him. A particle that makes mass? Sounds like God, this particle could be Gods presence in the natural world.

  • No. And I doubt there will ever be something that does.

    Religion and Science do not belong in the same league.
    It could be as easy as saying God created this field that works similarly to another field that we already knew and was said to exist because God created it (Electromagnetic field.)
    inb4 "So you're saying that an already irrational belief says that some entity would take the time to create a universe, divide its elemental forces, create the interaction between its components, create fields fields and particles to go through said fields? Why would something that needs no explanation go though all that explanation?" Yes, I am saying that. Why? I don't know, have faith. Sounds like wishful thinking does't it? Yes. That's why until we have tangible proof (which we'll probably never have) there's no reason to even take both into the same debate.

  • The Ever-prevalent God-of-the-gaps Fallacy

    The Higgs boson existing or not existing has nothing to do with whether or not God exists. Most believers in God don't have a goofy god-of-the-gaps type belief system where they believe in God for the reason that science hasn't yet completely described the history of the universe yet, just like most atheists wouldn't stop believing in atheism in the case that the Higgs boson were shown to probably not exist--it's because one thing has nothing to do with the other.
