Did you hear the news? Scientist in a group called CERN announced today in Geneva that a particle that they have been studying since last year is very likely the Higgs boson or God Particle that the world has been eagerly seeking. By finding this God Particle Scientist believe that they have proven the big bang and that this particle is the Missing Link that is needed to conclude the “evidence” of the big bang.
What is this God Particle? If I understand the description of this particle, this is what it is about: It is a particle that has the ability to give other atoms size and shape when the atomic particles are smashed together. The theory is that during the big bang, the Higgs bosom is the particle that helped in the cause of growing the size and shape of the aftermath of the collision. This theory has been tested in a $10 billion dollar underground tunnel. This tunnel is 17 miles long and is located around the border of Switzerland and France. The tests are conducted when atomic material is smashed together and then detectors along the tunnel measures the growth, shape, and distance (that the atoms have traveled). All of this has put smiles on the faces of evolutionist around the world. The God Particle has been found.
Now I will not claim to be a scientist, and I will not claim to even understand all of the details of this particle. But I do have some questions for scientists who believe that this discovery proves the big bang.
First, assuming that this Higgs boson is able to cause differences in size and shape of atomic material, where is the proof that this actually happened? The only “proof” that they have is found in the perfect situation. There testing facilitates are elaborate and the tests are performed in a manner to get the results that are desired. The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics states that energy and matter decreases and breaks down over time. By example, if you bought a brand new car in 1983, that car over the last 30 years has been deteriorating over time. It does not matter if you drive it, or sit it outside and never drive it, it will eventually deteriorate. When we talk about the creation of the world, how can we say that something like atomic mater can have the ability to take something very minuscule and turn itself into something phenomenal? Where is the proof?
Second, lets say everything that they are finding in this massive test tube could have potentially happened. Where does this bring us? Does this automatically bring about the existence of the universe? Or does this just give us a bigger mess of atomic matter? I seriously doubt the folks at CERN are dealing with a new universe being formed in their 17 mile tunnel (how crazy would that be?).
Third (and most importantly), where did this God Particle come from? All of the “proof” in the world as to what this particle “might” do is for not if one cannot prove where it came from. If there is not a Devine Creator, then where did this particle and other atoms come from? Is it not ludicrous to assume that these atoms came into existence on their own?
No matter how many missing links scientists claim that they find throughout the ages, the Bible still has the most logical explanation as to where this universe came from: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Does it not make so much more sense to believe that a Creator who is eternal (has no beginning and no end) created the universe? Before we believe what scientist throw before us blindly, let us look to see how it compares to the Biblical account.
