The Higgs boson is the so-far-theoretical partical that gives all matter is mass. Nicknamed the "God particle."
Great little video explaining the Higgs boson and what CERN is doing.
This probably won't contribute much to the discussion , but we were staying just 1/2 mile from the CERN research plant this week while on vacation in Swtizerland.
Did you feel like you were closer to the God particle? :)
To me it is easier to see God driving among the Swiss Alps and realizing no man, chance, or big bang could have made them.
