Has The 'God Particle' Been Found? Major Announcement Expected Tuesday | Fox News: "This particle, which has long been theorized but never detected, is thought to give all other particles mass. "

This "discovery" is the most absurd of all absurdities in the Standard Model. Mass is a dimension, not a material thing. To say that a particle gives other particles mass is as absurd as claiming to discover a length particle that gives matter length. It's just as absurd as the so-called "force particle" "bosons." Force is not caused by particles, either.
If they are going to say that mass is a particle, then time, length, and charge would also have to be particles. But they are not, they are dimensions. That is, they are properties of things, not things themselves.
