3. People have been looking for it fruitlessly forever.

Likely to continue to do so.

Kind of fits.

4. It does sound ridiculous, doesn't it?

I reserve judgment....if they can find "proof" that there is a god, I will reconsider my stand on this. But I don't think that this, even if it does exist, will prove there is a god.

5. I know why they call it that.

Without the Higgs Boson the Pope wouldn't have mass.

15. NPR claims it was originally called the 'goddamn' particle because it was so hard to find.

Editor cleaned that up a bit.

Skeptical.

16. Propaganda. Intentional "pre-naming" to prepare for controlling argument most

likely by a conservative. I hate it also.
