Contrary to logic, and without instruments, God states everything that can be seen (matter) was made of things which cannot be seen; elementary particles which include the Higgs. The "footprint" of the Higgs was detected. As stated in the bible, it can't be seen and yet gives mass to other particles so they can be seen, no shenanigans needed. Peter Higgs theorized it in the 1964, CERN discovered it in 2012, God proclaimed it 1900 years ago and He created it billions of years ago; it is God's particle.
God has been proven by the empirical scientific data. By this we know the bible is of divine origin because the Bronze Age illiterate peasants surely could not deduce such knowledge.
There is no conflict between proven science and God. Scientific research is necessary to better understand how God created this great universe.
