God particle found

Published July 4th, 2012 by Bobby Henderson

god particle 

Physicists at CERN say they’ve found the Higgs Boson.  Not surprising – illustrations of the “God Particle” closely resemble the FSM.

Below are two good articles about the discovery.  Scientists seem to keeping a lid on the FSM connection, for now. Smart.

    I was so excited when I saw this! I don’t care what the nay-sayers say. This is much closer to proof of our God than some other religions. So what if we a-skewed the particles that make up His image, to resemble something that looks like His noodliness? Many more religions don’t even have that!

  2. Olio says:

    To fully comprehend the criticisms and understand the science, some of us need a ‘Physics for Dummies’ or, ‘Idiots Guide to Physics’ book.

    By some of us, of course am referring to me.

    I’m a keen follower of CERN and their work. This event is now so much more to me now that I feel touched by His noodly presence. Someone make a T-Shirt please!

      RAmen on the t-shirt!

    We are facing a deep theological conundrum here.
    To the eye of the faithful all heavy elementary particles (Z, W, t…) have signatures that look like the FSM.
    Is the FSM “one and many at the same time”? No that would be absurd! No religion could possibly pull that one off.
    Any other suggestions?

    • Keith says:

      No, it’s not absurd at all. The FSM is the true God and can do what He/She/It wants. The FSM is all things to all men/women/children/dogs/cats/voles etc.

    • Brandon says:

      The FSM created the entire universe and everything in it. It’s possible that the particle isn’t really Him, but He just created it in His image.

    He is finally reviled himself to us! All hail the mighty Flying Spaghetti Monster! RAmen!

    • Atsap Revol says:

      No, Matija, the FSM is not the god that should be REVILED. You have a case of mistaken identity. Try REVILING some other god. (Hint: starts with a C.)

        I think Matija meant “revealed”.

  6. Roderick, Pursar says:

    It’s curious to note that LHC physicists claim to be recreating energy densities like that of the Big Boil. Notice how the particle tracks are just starting to flex, like fresh pasta! Further evidence that they are manipulated by His Noodley Appendage, guided through His Higgs field sauce. Ramen.

  7. Keith says:

    Fine. If you will check your punctuation then we will check our spelling.

  8. gordon_UK says:

    The Higgs Boson.

    Since we are now pretty sure it actually exists, can we all agree to stop calling it the “God particle?”

    • Lee says:

      Your right, we should demand the name changed to the FSM particle.

    • Omnipotent Zombie says:

      I see what you did there. Nicely done.
