So you the higgs-boson actually exists now? Wow you're ahead of CERN. They only "found" a particle that acts like it.

I didn't say it would destroy the earth. It would take more than one nuclear explosion to destroy the earth. But all life will be gone though. If you look at the link Mike provided, it's talking about what could happen billions of years from now. The sun will die out just like any other stars. Unless you believe that the sun has eternal life. But the expanding universe will continue...
it would take more than all of our nukes exploding at once on top of all our nuclear plants to destroy the earth.

So what was all that stuff about the earth being gone and destroying the moon and the other planets about?

yes, the sun will run out of fuel in a few billion years. probably kill all life on earth in a little under one billion years as it increases its output.

They seem pretty certain they created and detected one. they usually do not make such claims lightly.

has anyone ever made any such claim about this prime matter?

No they have not created one yet. Right now CERN is not even at work. It's under maintenance.

The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is a theoretical elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics. Experiments to detect the Higgs boson resulted in the discovery of a new, previously unknown boson during 2012; however contrary to widespread misreporting,[12] the new particle is still being studied as of 2013 to learn whether it is the Higgs boson or not.[13][14] Confirmation that the Higgs boson exists would be monumental[15][16] since it would finally prove the existence of the Higgs field." - wikipedia

Still sounds like a Caucasian flavor of bigotry to me. Gibberish, invented to obfuscate at best, but possibly a mental disorder.

Minority! They barely exist!
The CIA World Factbook gives the world population as 7,021,836,029 (July 2012 est.) and the distribution of religions as Christian 33.35%(of which Roman Catholic 16.83%, Protestant 6.08%, Orthodox 4.03%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.43%, Hindu 13.78%, Buddhist 7.13%, Sikh 0.36%, Jewish 0.21%, Baha'i 0.11%, other religions 11.17%, atheists 2.04%.

Study: Atheists Have Lowest 'Retention Rate' Compared to Religious Groups
Only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household remain atheists as adults. This "retention rate" was the lowest among the 20 separate categories in the study.
There were 1,387 atheists (weighted) in the survey. Four-hundred thirty-two weighted respondents said they were raised atheist. Of those, 131 self-identified as atheist.
Continued:
Gray also noted that, "of those raised as atheists, 30% are now affiliated with a Protestant denomination, 10% are Catholic, 2% are Jewish, 1% are Mormon, and 1% are Pagan."
Jehovah's Witness, congregationalist and holiness churches had the next lowest retention rates at 37 percent, 37 percent and 32 percent, respectively. Thirty-eight percent of those who grew up with no particular religious faith or belief system remained that way.
Hindus had the highest retention rate at 84 percent, followed by Jews (76 percent), Muslims (76 percent), Greek Orthodox (73 percent), Mormons (70 percent) and Catholics (68 percent).
Baptists had the highest retention rate of the Protestant Christian categories at 60 percent, followed by Lutheran (59 percent) and Pentecostal (50 percent).

“Atheists abandon their beliefs more often than people in other religious groups, study finds”
A new study has found that people raised in an atheist home abandon those beliefs as adults more often than people raised with other religious belief systems, putting atheism at a 30 percent retention rate. Conclusions and interpretations of the study are that atheists are more often "made" as adults rather than "raised." The highest retention rates are in the Hindu faith, which holds onto about 84 percent of adherents.
Those who grow up in an atheist household are least likely to maintain their beliefs about religion as adults, according to a study by Georgetown University's Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA).
Only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household remain atheists as adults. This "retention rate" was the lowest among the 20 separate categories in the study.

yet the scientists at CERN are quite confident they found it. again, they do not make such claims lightly.

All the facts would say otherwise. all the logical deductions from his actions and those of his followers would suggest otherwise.

No, i clearly repeated what the scientists at Cern are saying? what part of that do you not understand? if you cannot understand those simple sentences, why do you think you can understand physics?(or were you purposefully attempting to attribute to me things I did not say?)
