God Particles - Higgs bosons

Scientists at CERN,Geneva has found a godly particles called Higgs boson by bombarding two protons nourished by 125 GeV,which was named after a scientist Peter Higgs and boson comes from  Satyendra Nath Bose. It was first mentioned in a paper by Peter Higgs in 1964. The funny thing was that he first wrote a paper in which he had not mentioned this particle at all. He sent it to the journal Physics Letters . The editor of the journal, who was a famous physicist himself, returned the paper saying he should add something about the physical implications of the theory.Then Peter Higgs added a small paragraph about the Higgs particle and sent it to a rival journal, Physical Review Letters, which published it! As the first physicist to have talked about the need for a heavy particle to exist, the Higgs particle later came to be named after him. The reason for the existence of mass for the particles in universe has been revealed through this discovery.Scientists from CERN claimed that Higgs boson are the smallest elementary particle of all with zero spin.But few people  dont agree with scientists at CERN, in Geneva Switzerland about the Higgs Boson (God's Particle). Scientists claim “Higgs boson is not the most elementary particle. Is there anything finite quantity in this world??? I think that they have given up. In labs, this may not be possible, but few yrs down the line ,they will be able to divide it further. As a parallel, consider this. You divide 1 by 2 and get 0.5., Now keep dividing it by 2 many times.. You will tend to get 0, but will never get zero. If you do this on calculator, it may show zero due to limitation of calculator, but the truth 0 is not reached in any case. So, in this case practically one would have found 0 on calculator whereas there is no zero theoretically in this example. Similarly, the higgs boson must be divisible further and so it can't be the elementary particle”. Replying to these tweets  Rolf Heuer, Director of the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) put it, ‘As a layman, I think we did it. We’ve a discovery. We’ve observed a new particle that is consistent with the Higgs Boson.’
Important Facts about H.bosons
^Boson from Higgs boson was named after Indian scientist named sathyendra bose

^These particles obey the Bose Einstein Statistics first discovered by Indian physicist Satyendranath Bose. Hence the word ‘boson’.

^It is the theoretical model for explaining how the earth came into existence

^CERN atom/proton smasher alone costs 10 billion USD to construct and run

^It has its significance in cancer theraphy
