Re: Higgs Boson Mass points to end of our Universe

Yes, the theories aren't dishonest, they just somehow feel unsatisfying as explanations. Another candidate, quintessence, sort of side steps the cosmological constant problem, but it too seems like a mathematical slight of hand. Perhaps a unifying theory of quantum gravity will make everything clear, but we've been waiting quite a while now.
