As you have noticed (and we agree), this website is pretty awesome. Why you would choose to not be a member or logged in is baffling to both of us. The process is simple and costs you nothing, unless you really feel the urge to pay then we will not deny you that request. Back on point, once you become a member you will wonder why you put up with this notice all this time and ask yourself, "What was I thinking?" Being a tWebber is too awesome to pass up.
So stop playing ninja trying to act all stealth and lurking about (we see you), do you really want to be seen as a "lurker". Its like you are peeking in people's windows while they undress. How naughty of you. Does your mom know what you are doing right now? She agrees you should just register or login already. Good job.
It isn't at all clear from this news item that there's anything qualitatively new about what CERN is planning to do, though the energies may be higher than in previous experiments. For the past ~70 years physicists have been smashing particles together at higher and higher energies. (& no matter how high the energy, the speeds will always be a teeny bit less than that of light.)
But I don't mean to make this work sound unimportant. As we get to higher and higher energies, we can approximate conditions earlier and earlier in the big bang and try to get a better understanding of what might have gone on then. In particular, we can try to find out how different kinds of elementary particles came into being. What this means theologically (IMO) is that we can find out something about the processes by which God created matter.
The last sentence in the report is a bit cryptic. Mass gives rise to gravitational fields and is in turn acted on them, but we don't know why some particles have rest mass. (Some particles - in particular, light quanta - don't, though they have energy.) So one of the problems is to understand how mass - in that sense - originates.
I don't know if I clarified things adequately here. Please let me know if you have more specific questions. (My physics background is not in elementary particles so no guarantees on being able to answer all questions in that area!)
More cute sayings that don't answer a word that anybody said? Anyway mickiel, do you have any evidence that the Christianity of the church father era is any different, in terms of teachings, from the...
