God Particle, why does it matter?

The Higgs boson is a tiny theoretical particle that gets it’s nick-name because of the significane of its existence. If it does exist, it could lead to a completely material explanation of the Big-Bang theory. Even though this particle could not completely tell the whole story, it would point in the direction that the Big-Bang happened without a devine inspiration. This is an important concept for a discussion on the origin of the Universe. The Higgs boson is a tiny part of the origin of life discussion but it should be understood none the less. More and more, people today are under the assumption that Science trumps God. They assume that beliefs are just beliefs and can not be backed up with any kind of real facts. With the evidence for the Big-Bang being so overwhelming, can a faithful Christian believe in it? My argument is for discovery and weighing the facts against what we currently know. There is a website called Bio Logos, that helps explain a lot of the bridges between science and faith. The Higgs boson is a tiny part of a large discusion taking place. Logically, the science does make sense, it is our responsibility as a Modern Christian Man to go and find the answers. When I started attacking this issue I went straight to the Bible to find out if Genesis is supposed to be taken literally. That is where I started at least. Ask questions and I will do research to help find the answers and we can continue this discussion.
