How Well Do We Know What Stuff Is Made Of? 06/17/2010 http://creationsafaris.com/crev201006.htm#20100617a
June 17, 2010 — When we think of the “hard sciences,” physics usually tops the list. A closer look at what physicists think the universe is made of, though, hardly makes the science look hard. Look at this headline on PhysOrg, for instance: “Study finds there may be multiple ‘God particles’”. The title refers, of course, to the famed Higgs Boson, not to some supernatural entity. The Large Hadron Collider was hoping to find evidence of this particle that Nobel laureate Leon Lederman called the “God particle” because, he said, its discovery could help unify our understanding of the universe and “know the mind of God.” But now, according to Fermilab scientists, there might be five versions of the Higgs boson (which hasn’t been discovered yet).
Frank Close wrote a book review in Nature this week on this subject.1 The book is Massive: The Hunt for the God Particle by Ian Sample. He points out that particle physicists hate the label “god particle” that the media continue to give it, and notes that “many argue that it should not be called the Higgs boson because the concept has a longer history.” It turns out there is as much sociology, theory and nomenclature at work as physics in the conception of what lies at the foundations of matter. A sample:
Whereas the W and Z bosons that carry the weak force make use of this mechanism, the photon that carries the electromagnetic force does not; it remains massless. Why this happens remains unanswered....Read the entire article here...
