Until the Higgs Boson was discovered, it was just a theory. Does that mean it was irrelevant before it was discovered a couple of months ago?
Nobody was looking for a supernatural explanation of what makes up particles. They were looking for physical evidence. If they hadn't found Higgs Boson, they weren't going to shrug their shoulders and settle for, "we'll, god must hold them together," and then start teaching that in science class.
