I know, how can it be science if it is only accepted due to scientific consensus, science is science.

I know I will have trouble sleeping tonight in anticipation of tomorrows announcement. Lets face it, how often does the key to the universe come knocking? Funny them making the discovery at the end of the Mayan calendar.This is as big as the, well, big bang theory: Scientists working at the world's largest atom smasher say they have enough evidence of the long-sought-after Higgs boson.
