A truly incredible story has emerged from Geneva as scientists at CERN were caught on tape performing a mock human sacrifice!
The bizarre footage, posted to YouTube, shows a group of cloaked individuals gathering around a statue of the Hindu god Shiva and 'stabbing' a woman to death.
Little is known about the origins of the video, but there is no doubt as to its authenticity thanks to a jaw-dropping response from CERN.
In a statement to the AFP, a spokesperson for the organization confirmed that the scene was filmed at their facility in Geneva which is home to the Large Hadron Collider.
CERN stressed that the faux sacrifice was performed without the group's foreknowledge or permission and promised an investigation into the strange affair.
"These scenes were filmed on our premises, but without official permission or knowledge," a spokeswoman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) told the AFP news agency. CERN is the top physics lab in Europe and home to the world's largest particle accelerator.
The spoof occult ceremony took place at the main square of the lab's campus that houses dormitories and office buildings in Geneva, Switzerland. The statue on the square shows Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction. "CERN does not condone this type of spoof, which can give rise to misunderstandings about the scientific nature of our work," according to the spokeswoman. The institution "welcomes every year thousands of scientific users from all over the world and sometimes some of them let their humor go too far," she added.
So apparently some scientists from CERN got together to stage a mock human sacrifice to Shiva. Remind you of anything closer to home?
