Inane ravings of an irreverent slacker

LHC paranoia

Posted by Jeff on September 9, 2008

Why do people automatically fear and mistrust anything they don’t understand? The Large Hadron Collider is getting ready to go online. This device has the potential to revolutionize our way of viewing the world by exploring the nature of matter and energy at levels we’ve never been able to come close to before. It does not, however, have the potential to create a black hole which will destroy the entire Earth! 

I mean, think about it. You’ve got one ex-‘nuclear safety officer'(that’s the job Homer does!) in Hawaii who studied physics for a little bit ranting on about the end of the world (which he has done before) versus hundreds of actual scientists who study particle collisions for a living who are saying that this is absolute bullshit. Who do you believe? I know where my money is going.
