The God Particle

Thanks to the author of the article, Russ Jones, mentioned this blog post made last week–“What Should We Make of the ‘God Particle’ Discovery?”
Regarding the amazing find of the Higgs Boson particle, many people see it as a way of disproving God. The idea that any aspect of the physical universe we can’t explain naturally must by necessity be “God” explained has been the false presumption by many theists. Therefore, new discoveries such as this are yet backfiring to such theistic claims–furthering the idea that there must be no God. However, this situation simply expresses the flaw of many theists who argue God’s existence in the gaps of our scientific finds–only showing atheism to be the perspective for those who wait for a better natural answer, while theists are shown to be the anxious ignorants. The problem is that our idea of God is all wrong–completely even! If there is one unique aspect of the Gospel message, it is that God is not the cop-out answer for that which we don’t know, He is the God of revelation. He isn’t the God of the gaps, but the God of completion.

Christians shouldn’t be scared of anything that seems to prove God out of the picture. We shouldn’t have such a narrow mind in our theology or understanding of His creations, that we are frozen when anything arrives to demolish our framework of interpretation. I commend these new discoveries as feats in the human grasp of all that essentially belongs to God. We should be ready to applaud the efforts of those who invested time and effort into making the discoveries such as this that help us see the beauty in God’s creation and how it works. If there is one quality that should stand out most is how finely tuned our universe is that this particle exists for an extremely necessary purpose. Our view of God should grow, in fact, with this amazing news, as should the position that the universe requires design by the Creator.

The Reasons to Believe organization already two days ago had some anticipations for this news.

Check out the Los Angeles Times article on the discovery.

  1. I love the phrase God of the Gaps . . . way too good not to use for fiction. As for the article I wholeheartedly agree. I have a particle physics author friend who now dabbles in fiction. He’s a “want to believe” kind of guy that lets his sea of “Gap” doubts keep him from standing on his small island of personal revelation.
    As I often tell him God starts with the small piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is you. After that he connects to you, one at a time, other pieces. Each piece connected to you fills another small piece of the gap. After awhile you look back and notice how much larger your island of understanding has become. That moment is your “AHA!”moment. Your heart melts in thankfulness and the love affair with your creator takes off in earnest.
    Good post, I’ll return

  2. Higgs Boson / “God Particle” -2012 Science news is actually a 150+ year old discovery by a different name ………………Infinite Intelligence….Steve Meyer / New Thought Movement / HolisticDNA

    “New Thought promotes the ideas that “Infinite Intelligence” or “God” is ubiquitous, spirit is the totality of real things, true human selfhood is divine, divine thought is a force for good, sickness originates in the mind, and “right thinking” has a healing effect…” Wikipedia
