In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. String theory aims to explain all types of observed elementary particles using quantum states of these strings. In addition to the particles postulated by the standard model of particle physics, string theory naturally incorporates gravity and so is a candidate for a theory of everything, a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms of matter. Besides this potential role, string theory is now widely used as a theoretical tool and has shed light on many aspects of quantum field theory and quantum gravity.
But what really makes this interesting is that none of our religious folks would not dare to attribute this to God?! Right, all good stuff they will attribute to god, miracle, what not, but if is something bad... NO, no one of them would even consider it.

I must say I am fascinated by your ability to turn every topics into a rant against religion.
Why do you assume that if someone knows little about the CERN, then it automatically means this someone is a "religious folk"?!
Horses don't know about the CERN neither, you know. Does that mean horses are "religious folks"??

If the LHC had the capability to generate earthquakes, there should have been hundreds of earthquakes in Europe. There's more correlation between large Earthquakes between different continents due to the way that shock waves are refracted through the mantle and core. There's also the capacitance effect of rock that allows electric currents to travel through and build up as well as the way that ground water can allow fault lines to slip rather than store up the stress.
