The God Particle - Higgs Boson debate

The God particle http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2168557/Higgs-boson-Scientists-God-particle-40-year-search-momentous-day-science.html

Most of modern science was launched by people who believed God had created the universe.

These pioneers desired to discover some of the laws and properties God put in place to govern His creation. However, as mankind made some of the fascinating discoveries we can now build upon, some folks began to think that knowing how some things in the universe were designed to function meant there was not a biblical Designer behind them. This faulty reasoning has taken over most scientific endeavors today.

Secularists hope the Higgs boson will save the current Big Bang model.

While it may lend it more life support, the BB model is still terminally ill. For example, the First Law of Thermodynamics is that matter or energy can not be created or destroyed. This is one of the most accepted and proven laws of science and is one of a number of serious problems for Big Bang cosmologies.

Isaac Asimov referred to the First Law of Thermodynamics as “one of the most important generalizations in the history of science”.

Basically stated, the First Law of Thermodynamics is that the total quantity of matter and energy in the universe is always constant, even though energy can be transformed into other forms of energy.

This law, also referred to as the Law of Conservation of Mass and Energy, reveals that the universe could not have created itself as required by the Darwinian oriented theories. All the observed changes throughout human history, whether caused by natural forces or by mankind, have resulted from the rearranging of the energy and matter that had already been in existence. Never has an observed change occurred that was the result of the creation of new matter or new energy.

The First Law of Thermodynamics is a major problem for all theories which attempt to explain how the universe developed itself without outside input.

In other words, the universe could not have burst into existence during a Big Bang from a tiny speck of matter.

A letter signed by dozens of scientists appeared in New Scientist on May 22, 2004 titled “Bucking the big bang.” http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg18224482.900-bucking-the-big-bang.html

The letter included statements such as: The big bang theory can boast no predictions that have been validated by observation. Claimed Successes consist of retrospectively making observations fit by adding adjustable parameters.

The big bang relies on a growing number of never observed entities, inflation, dark matter, dark energy…and can’t survive without these fudge factors…In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical factors be accepted.

My advice is that we enjoy true discoveries of how our Creator created while we place our faith in our Lord and redeeming Savior, Lord Jesus the Christ.
