Thumbs down Will the world end tomorrow?

Will the world end tomorrow (10th Sept.) when the scientists fire up the 'CERN Atom Smasher' on the Swiss/French Border?



"Critics of the Large Hadron Collider - a 4.4 billion machine due to be switched on on 10th Septemper - have lodged a lawsuit at the European Court for Human Rights against the 20 countries, including the UK, that fund the project.

The device is designed to replicate conditions that existed just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang, and its creators hope it will unlock the secrets of how the universe began.

However, opponents fear the machine, which will smash pieces of atoms together at high speed and generate temperatures of more than a trillion degrees centigrade, may create a mini-black hole that could tear the earth apart."

Maybe Omnisphere doesn't really exist and/or isn't ready, and Spectrasonics is COUNTING on the end of the world...

yeah and the updates are obtainable from, a black hole near you
that article is quite daunting actually, from what they are saying is that if you can imagine a sand timer the black hole created will be the funnel part and the earths surface is the top of the sand when those final grains of sand get sucked through we'll be going with it i hope i have some decent pants on i had better swat up on my black hole movies such as 'event horizon" and may be practice my time traveling, it's been along time since i used the bunny suit. its funny how multi million dollar companies have such "pull" no one will stop this! Too much money has gone into it and there are probably some serious players involved who are very influential in what happens, come to think of it, what have you been doing recently Modz1? have you got the boys prepped to "take care of" the opposers

It seems it is not just mini-black holes that we need to worry about

The public concerns range from: (MBH) Blackholes, Expanded Quantum Wormholes (My favorite), Time-Distortions (second favorite), Strangelet Transitions (not likely), and let's not forget to mention, Complete Protonic Reversal! Even to this minute, the scientists are not sure about the potential outcomes! Stephen Hawking is unsure, in regard to 'Hawking Radiation', and it's affect upon the dissipation of (MBH) Blackholes!

Well, I think we'll all be safe tomorrow, doing some additional reading, yes, they're flipping the standby switch tomorrow but the first particle collisions aren't happening until Oct 21st. Which puts me in a similar position to ndk, as I've got tickets to see M83 on Oct 22nd and I'd really like to be able to go that show.

yeah they also suggest it would take around 4 years for the initial black hole to suck in the world, they say its all what happens in the natural world, this might be true but the human race have a great way of ballsing things up
