Why are these people standing verticaly near the roof of the Sistene Chapel?
Anyway, Higgs Boson isn’t “the key” to the universe, it’s just proof that the Higgs field, which explains why some particles have mass, others have considerably more, and others don’t have any. And this helps cement the standard model that explains the rules of how and why the universe works the way it does.
And the particle isn’t that important. It’s just prrof of the Higgs field, and without the field (or some other mechanic that would have been worked out if the Higgs field was found not to exist) we’d either have all particles zooming around at the speed of light. It’s not that it had to come from somewhere, we wouldn’t know if it didn’t, because we wouldn’t exist. So why attribute it to god, and to the Christian god at that?
