Scientific Delirium Madness

     It bothers me that scientific illiteracy exists to the point where something like this can be taken seriously.

     Folks, something to know about CERN, even though it is going to produce collisions at higher energies than anything that has ever been done in a man-made collider, those energies are still at least five orders of magnitude smaller than natural collisions that happen in the atmosphere as high energy cosmic rays slam into molecules there.

     So if CERN could create mini-black holes and those could grow and swallow up the Earth, cosmic rays already would have caused this to happen and we wouldn’t be here.  If these things could destroy our souls, again we wouldn’t be here.

     The person narrating this video obviously has no idea what anti-matter is.  Anti-matter particles have charge and spin that are opposite those of ordinary matter.  Another way to look at it is that it behaves like matter going backwards in time.  There is nothing about it that makes it any wilder than ordinary matter.  However, anti-matter and matter annihilate each other and turn into pure energy when they collide.  That’s why it has to be so carefully contained.

     The amount made at CERN or any other facility isn’t sufficient to make any gigantic explosion.  Nor does it have the potential to be weaponized without significantly more advanced containment technology than we have today.  That technology is extremely unlikely to be developed any time soon and if we did develop it, hydrogen bombs will still make more economical, portable, and deliverable weapons so I doubt it would be adopted for those purposes.

     Just because we don’t understand something doesn’t make it demonic or satanic or evil, and facilities like CERN help us to understand things.  They shine light on the dark and that’s how you get rid of evil.
