I learned from BBC today, that CERN has invited philosophers and theologians to debate the origins of the universe, following the discovery of the Higgs boson (or something of the sorts). Now, I can see how some philosophers can potentially contribute to certain questions regarding the origins of the universe, humanity, consciousness, morality etc. No problems there. They can ask some good questions and pave the way for science to find the answers. They may even provide some quasi-answers as well I guess.
Just a quick word about my visit to CERN over the weekend: not what I expected.
