Tomorrow, the BBC is airing a special on Peter Higgs, the British particle physicist. Higgs is the namesake of the Higgs boson, the particle discovered at CERN last summer that is sometimes called "the God particle."
Higgs will use his BBC soapbox to ask us all to please stop it with the whole God thing.
"First of all, I'm an atheist," The Telegraph quotes him as telling the BBC.
"The second thing is I know that name was a kind of joke and not a very good one."
This is by no means the first time Higgs has mentioned his dislike for the term "God particle," and he is by no means the only person to harbour such feelings.

Certainly nothing new here. This issue was central to our recent discussion concerning the Higgs:

But I will update that Thread with this information, thanks

Stephen Hawking Says 'God Particle' Could Wipe Out the Universe

Simulated data from the Large Hadron Collider particle detector shows the Higgs boson produced after …

Stephen Hawking bet Gordon Kane $100 that physicists would not discover the Higgs boson. After losing that bet when physicists detected the particle in 2012, Hawking lamented the discovery, saying it made physics less interesting. Now, in the preface to a new collection of essays and lectures called "Starmus," the famous theoretical physicist is warning that the particle could one day be responsible for the destruction of the known universe.
