In Defense of the Search for the God Particle.

George A. Yesthal

People who REALLY want to understand the universe and the way it works have the drive and courage to risk the gloom and doom prophesies put forth by those who are satisfied with the fantasy that God is some guy in the sky that can work all these wonders with the snap of his celestial fingers. The scientists are the true believers.

The defenders of religious dogma will do anything to throw trip-ups and roadblocks in their way because of intense fear that what is discovered is liable topple their house of cards and consequently whatever power they have amassed thereby.

The scientists look so deeply because they know in their hearts that there has to be more than there appears to be on the surface, that we must be more than the random collision of atoms and cellular dysfunction and mutation. They do so through heroic effort and countless man-hours and monetary expenditure. They do so all in the effort to know that we are as we have expected, made in God’s image and to finally be able to congratulate him on a job well done.

I think the detractors of the CERN exploration, the nay-sayers and doomsday critics are mostly proponents of typical conventional dogma who 1. Don’t understand the and fear the science involved and 2. Have religious agendas which may be threatened by the further discoveries which they see coming WAY too close to actually answering a lot of the mysteries that have given them power for all these centuries. This is ironic because more and more scientists who were atheistic and working in the field of quantum physics are beginning to believe the cosmos exhibits an intelligent design. This SHOULD make these religious groups happy, but instead they shake their holy tomes and preach of disaster, which I think shows their fear that they will lose what power and control over the devout that they have enjoyed for all these centuries.

I don’t think we need to fear the science of the CERN projects but I do worry that like all technology so far, it will be usurped and put to nefarious usage by pernicious factions.
