Why religious people ignore this fact. The misery and the suffering of Billions of people make me sick to my stomach and religious people say that it's god's plan and blabla. 
Get over it folks, there is no-one is the sky. God doesn't exist, and if he exists, he is not great. Moreover, a real god doesn't need your prayers and worshiping.

The misery and the suffering of people is man made there's no ambiguity about that as far as god existence goes we will find out the minute we die that's for sure

+Randall Lee Reetz So who is the "you" you're talking to, Randall?  Diverting again because you can't admit in public that you're talking about a possibly empty set of generic people selected to fit your strawman subjective biases?

A physics paper with 5,154 authors has — as far as anyone knows, broken the record for the largest number of contributors to a single research article.
Only the first nine pages in the 33-page article, published on 14 May in Physical Review Letters1, describe the research itself (more precise estimate of the size of the Higgs Boson.) — including references. 
The other 24 pages list the authors and their institutions.
Detector teams at the Large Hadron Collider collaborated for a more precise estimate of the size of the Higgs boson.

"...it is important to distinguish between those questions that are answerable in principle and those that are not, and also between those questions whose answers can be practically obtained in the near or medium term." 
"Graduate students in physics, for example, often enter graduate school with grand goals of discovering the Theory of Everything. But, as my friend and Nobel Laureate Frank Wilczek likes to say, what we really need is a Theory of Something!..."

Finally some good news: 2014 Pew Survery: US Christians down 8% to 71%,Religiously Unaffiliated up 7% to 23%:56 Million declare no religion.
The religious decline continues across US.. atheists, agnostics tallied doubled in US in 2014. Don't feel alone.

+Thomas Brown "sorry, just can't stop laughing at your attempt there"
LOL
That's all you can come up with, is it? You're so totally bested that you can't even try to continue to justify your prejudices and biases against all those other groups? All your tiny, warped, hate-filled brain is able to come up with is this drivel? 
BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Now, go back to your hateful little world of stupidity and try to think of something equally moronic to write in reply to this one. We'll all be waiting to laugh at you some more.

When I was preparing my first Master's degree in Theoretical Physics, my mentor used to tell me: "Don't loose yourself in the mathematics and forget about the physics behind it".

Now my supervisor told me: "Don't loose yourself in the coding and forget about the physics we are trying to discover".

Both Theoretical Physics and Experimental Physics are hard to Master because while using their tools, you must keep in mind daily the reason you are doing the work, the physics, the big picture.

I think this is important for every scientist.

Greatest philosopher/thinker/writer. Go!!
Let me write down a good list. And if you can tell us why it'd be better.

“The “healthy” person, the true individual, the self-realized soul, the “real” man, is the one who has transcended himself. How does one transcend himself; how does he open himself to new possibility? By realizing the truth of his situation, by dispelling the lie of his character, by breaking his spirit out of its conditioned prison. The enemy, for Kierkegaard as for Freud, is the Oedipus complex. The child has built up strategies and techniques for keeping his self-esteem in the face of the terror of his situation. These techniques become an armor that hold the person prisoner. The very defenses that he needs in order to move about with self-confidence and self-esteem become his life-long trap. In order to transcend himself he must break down that which he needs in order to live.”

Jung, who apparently was a very strange fellow, recommended the integration of all parts of the personality.  So, we cannot reject anything that is a part of ourselves -- the masculine, the feminine, the brave, the afraid, the kind, the unkind etc.
As in  great work of art, the more unified we are, the more at peace we are and the more meaningful our life becomes.

What the world would be like if there were no Higgs Boson?

Without Higgs Boson, would all the weight loss programs go bankrupt?

The actor Charlize Theron, who takes a leading role in the new Mad Max movie as a one-armed warrior driving five sex slaves to safety, has expressed her fears that a bleak future awaits the planet unless global warming is addressed.
The film is set 45 years in the future, in a post-apocalyptic world desperately short of water and fuel and ruled by a barbaric dictator who enslaves men and imprisons women for breeding and breast-milk.
“It felt very grounded in real events,” said Theron at a press conference for the film, which opens worldwide this week, following its gala premiere at Cannes on Thursday. “The idea of globalisation and global warming and drought and the value of water, and leadership becoming completely out of hand.”

- Catherine Shoard, The Guardian
The star of the new Mad Max movie, Fury Road, has spoken of the film as a cautionary tale which offers a premonition of a world ravaged by drought and hardship unless global warming is addressed

Transhumanists WANT apocalyptic fear. Such public hysteria works to bolster their absurdist notions of the future.

Story

I don't play dice!
Introduction
"Like all young men I set out to be a genius, but mercifully laughter intervened."

My posts are about the following topics:

Particle Physics(also known as High Energy Physics), Science, Philosophy, Psycho-analysis, Cultural-analysis,
CERN, Some geekery stuff, Music, Movies, Sarcasm, Coffee, Football and many other stuff. 
  • I'm pretty awesome!
  • Interested in Fundamental physics. Space, Time, Matter, Energy behaviors.
  • I'm a Creativity and Beauty Lover
  • I am interested in science communicating. 
  • I do Philosophy.
  • I am Nietzschean.
  • I like history, especially the early history of the universe!
  • I am sometimes very sarcastic. 
  • I have so much respect for creative and smart people.
  • My posts are not random, I try to expose and share with you my views about the world and the universe around us via my page. 
  • I am a Shaolin fighter
  • I play Football.
  • Huge Eminem and Zidane fan.
  • and yes, I am addicted to caffeine!
Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.

I am no man, I am a dynamite!

I am actually in one of Britney Spears G+ circles, and I really don't know why! 

Bragging rights
I didn't post a picture of a cat in my whole entire life lol.. I was the first one who did the biggest live-streamed science hangout on G+ for more than 90 minutes talking about modern physics, time travel, CERN and so on... nah, seriously, nothing yet! just working at CERN in Geneva & Meeting Prof Gerard 't Hooft in Utrecht! I earned a Bachelor's degree in Theoretical Physics when I was 19 and started a PhD two years later...
