I tend to think they are looking for something that either doesn't exist or is beyond our power to detect. Either having the same result. I just hope that some new scientific discovery is made that will validate the amount of money that was poured into the LHC project. I suspect that the governments who sponsored this project were expecting some tangible return on their investment. My experience is that governments rarely if ever fund science projects purely for the sake of the knowledge that may be gained. They could have spent the money for much more practical science and engineering or they could have fed a lot of starving children that I see on late night TV.

If we don't look we shall never find. I think the LHC is worthwhile, but I really don't see it finding some world changing discovery that alters life as we know it on this planet. Rather it will just add to our existing knowledge which can be no bad thing.

Please call it anything, just not The God Particle.

Here here Lynn I agree why change it Higgs is the one that came up with the theory sounds like some ego's are getting brused
