Stephen Krstulovich on the ‘God Particle.”

The US Assemblies of God has an article up on their website talking about the so-called “God Particle” “discovery” highlighting the work of Stephen Krstulovich, an engineer at Fermilab in Chicago for more than 25 years and a member of Maranatha Chapel (AG) in Evergreen Park, Illinois:

On July 4, 2012, physicists at the CERN facility in Geneva, Switzerland, announced the discovery of a particle that is likely to be the Higgs boson or “God Particle” as a result of colliding protons using their particle accelerator called the Large Hadron Collider. The news has led to a variety of statements, speculation and new theories.

But what, if anything, does the discovery mean for Christians? Is this a good thing or does this discovery “explain away” God creating the universe?

The answer is surrounded by complexities that perhaps only a particle physicist can fully appreciate, but even Christian physicists are excited about the discovery. But in order to understand what the excitement is all about, it’s important to understand (even simplistically) some science/physics history and what has apparently occurred.
