The worst thing that happened to the Higgs Boson was being called "the goddamned particle."  It was given that name because it was so illusive.  When time came to get published and someone wanted to refer to the Higgs as something other than "the Higgs Boson," the editor didn't want to use "the goddamned particle" for fear of offending someone ... so the "damned" was edited out.

How I'd love to go back in time and shoot that editor!  Would save SO MUCH BS!

Seriously, guys.  You should know better than to pay attention to the thoughts of a bunch of Yahoo users who have nothing better to do with their time than comment on news stories.

@James The problem with these people is not necessarily lack of intelligence, it's more likely to be lack of education.  I didn't really "get" science until I met real scientists and discovered the scientific method and some of the clever ways used to get nature to reveal its secrets, thanks to the Open University.  There is also a difficulty, at least for the religious, that in order to accept science as real they may have to give up a lifetime's investment in another philosophy.  Daniel Dennett had some interesting thoughts on that in Melbourne recently http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/183745/watch-daniel-dennetts-how-to...

LOL - exciting news!

Comment by James Bradford on July 2, 2012 at 4:17pm

I read through most of the comments and I can honestly say that the combined I.Q. of these people is about the equivalent of an eggplant. It's sad that so many people in today's society are completely clueless when it comes to intellectual topics.

I agree Flying Atheist.  I can't even read the comments.  Makes me sick.
