"God Particle" One More Proof Of God's Existence

As a Christian believer and a person with a very deep faith, proof of the existence of the "God Particle," or the subatomic particle called Higgs boson, is just another proof of the existence of God for me. The Universe has order, diversity, intricacy and creative, intelligent design. It wasn't just thrown together, there is simply too much order and mathematical exactness. The Universe as we know it was created by a Divine Creator. Billions of people from all walks of life believe that. Flowers alone and their magnificent designs and colors would be proof enough for me. But in any event, the "God Particle," is a nickname for this subatomic particle that physicists believe gives mass to matter. This is, of course, a very important discovery, but scientists still cannot say who created Higgs boson or why mass exists or why intelligent beings on this planet Earth, with rational minds, can even study the Universe and the existence of matter. So many unanswered questions still exist.
I think pride ( deadly sin) keeps human beings (some at least) from giving God the credit for this magnificent and orderly, awesome creation. I sometimes think that if there wasn't a Supreme Being/Creator everything on this earth could be the same color. For instance,what if everything was the color gray? Boring!! Or what if we each had two heads, wouldn't that be annoying! The colors in the natural world are beautiful, pleasing to the eye, there is so much beauty, so much creativity present in the natural world.
Believers are thankful to God for this magnificent creation. We give praise to God for life, existence, goodness, love, mercy, compassion and joy. We don't know all the answers but we do know that God exists and God is good. There is much mystery, it surrounds us but when we pray, regardless of the religion we follow, we know that God hears us and God is present to us. Thank you God for the "God Particle," and for creating this magnificent Universe. Amen to that!

I call to God the Most High, to God, my benefactor. (Psalm 57:3)

In this circle of earthly existence you shine with radiant light so finely,
it surpasses understanding.
God hugs you, You are encircled by the arms of the Mystery of God.
Gaze at the beauty of earth's greenings.
Now, think.
What delight God gives humankind with all these things.
Hildegard of Bingen
