Is the Higgs boson an imposter?
Perhaps it is 5 sigma, but sigma might be a good but not sufficient measure. It reminds me of some early cases of DNA forensics in Britain where they’d convict some immigrant by citing ten-million to one odds that they had the wrong guy. Then it would turn out that on the night of the murder, drinking in the same pub, sat the convict’s five immigrant cousins from Southeast Nowhereistan, altogether the six people out of sixty million who would be a perfect DNA match to that standard of evidence.
I talked to Dr. Sheldon Cooper just after the announcement, he said “…balderdash!”
Now I believe him.
