Science Disproves Philosophical Materialism

The recent discovery of the Higgs boson “God particle” so-called has formally disproved philosophical materialism. This radical and remarkable insight is easily overlooked by those who do not understand the science, but consider the following:

For the uninitiated — which is about 99% of us — a boson is one of two elementary particles that quantum theory says make up the universe. The other particles are fermions, also known as matter, such as protons and electrons. http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/topoftheticket/la-na-tt-higgs-boson-20120704,0,6845662.story

The tendency of science over the past century is clearly moving ever further from the materialist hypothesis, which is the foundation of ideologies as diverse as communism, atheism,  scientism, secularism, and humanism, but so far as I know this is the first time that the rejection of philosophical materialism has been made explicit. And it happened in 2012!
