The Top Quark

The religion of Quantum Mechanics has this particle called the top quark.  Top quarks are supposed to be building blocks for everything in the universe and yet back in the 90s a team of 440 scientists 'discovered' that the top quark has the mass of a gold atom.  This is probably one of the more outlandish claims of Quantum Mechanics but I am learning there are plenty more.  There is enough B.S. in Quantum Mechanics to fill several lifetimes.  They do not know what they are doing or even talking about.

In any case here is a nice chart done by Mike Huttner exploring this contradiction within a larger framework:
