"God Particle"? Maybe Not.

Over at Right Klik they have a great post up.

Click here for story: Losing Faith in God Particles

And yesterday, August 22, ... CERN scientists declared that over the entire range of energy the Collider had explored—from 145 to 466 billion electron volts—the Higgs boson is excluded as a possibility with a 95% probability.

...there is still a 5% chance that the Higgs is hiding somewhere ... But the Higgs is quickly running out of places to hide.

Oops. The much ballyhooed "God particle", and the Large Hadron Collider that was supposed to find it, have proven to be a dud.

Now it is important to realize just how important this admission is. Considering that Stephen Hawking himself was sure that the Collider would eventually discover the Higgs Boson "God particle". This just proves, if nothing else, that scientific theories, without experimental evidence to support them, are useless.

I am not posting all of this to gloat, but to point out that, as Socrates once said, "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." The science community needs to remember that.
