Rick Gerhardt :: Does the Higgs Boson particle have theological implications?

  • “It doesn’t really have any theological implications,” says Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist. The discovery of the Higgs Boson particle (sometimes called the ‘God particle’) is a significant scientific achievement. But it doesn’t carry with it any theological implications, despite its name. Rather, it is simply another piece of the universe. The cosmological and the design arguments for the existence of God aren’t affected positively or negatively by the Hadron Collider discovery. “Those are both as strong as they’ve ever been in light of the discovery of the Higgs Boson.”
