CERN regarding worries about creating black holes: don’t worry, it’s safe. we promise.

with 19 comments

A nuclear physicist named Dr. Wagner is leading a campaign to try to put a stop to the planned experiments in the soon-to-be world’s largest nuclear collider under construction at CERN in Switzerland.

The LHC propaganda machine that ‘everything is safe’ is well funded by your tax dollars, paying large salaries to thousands of people who have much to lose financially should the LHC be unable to prove its safety.

What’s interesting is that they even found it necessary to respond–to me that says that there must be enough important people who think it’s a risk that CERN is worried about it impacting their funding.

Accelerators recreate the natural phenomena of cosmic rays under controlled laboratory conditions. Cosmic rays are particles produced in outer space in events such as supernovae or the formation of black holes, during which they can be accelerated to energies far exceeding those of the LHC. Cosmic rays travel throughout the Universe, and have been bombarding the Earth’s atmosphere continually since its formation 4.5 billion years ago. Despite the impressive power of the LHC in comparison with other accelerators, the energies produced in its collisions are greatly exceeded by those found in some cosmic rays. Since the much higher-energy collisions provided by Nature for billions of years have not harmed the Earth, there is no reason to think that any phenomenon produced by the LHC will do so.
