I would no0t be too surprised if some cult started worshipping it.
Think about it! They would have a tremendous competitive advantage because their God has been validated by science: he really is in us and everywhere, and he is the central power in the universe.
Scientists cannot deny His existence or super powers. He is totally non interventionist in the lives of humans but that does not seem to worry most Christians. At at least he holds them together when otherwise they would fall apart.
Perhaps he really is responsible for creating everything.
CERN becomes a great Cathedral and place of pilgrimage, and the atomic scientists there are the high priests.
Heck, I may be onto something here. The Druids were nuclear physicists and Stonehenge was an ancient particle accelerator. Both are big and round. Coincidence? I think not!
I think it misses some elements that Christians find crucial. The Higgs field doesn’t give a shit about us — it doesn’t care who we have sex with, or any other aspect of our behavior. Worse, it doesn’t keep us from dying.
