The dangers are more profound than CERN scientist are saying. Here's an article from Yahoo news:
The safety of the collider, which will generate energies seven times higher than its most powerful rival, at Fermilab near Chicago, has been debated
for years. The physicist Martin Rees has estimated the chance of an accelerator producing a global catastrophe at one in 50 million — long odds, to
be sure, but about the same as winning some lotteries.
PEOPLE HIT THE LOTTERY ALL THE TIME.
Ellis said doomsayers assume that the collider will create micro black holes in the first place, which he called unlikely. And even if they appeared,
he said, they would instantly evaporate, as predicted by the British physicist Stephen Hawking.
STEPHEN HAWKING IS A SWAMI NOW? HAWKING HAS BEEN WRONG IN THE PAST AND THIS IS PREDICTED NOT OBSERVED. IF HE'S WRONG, THEN WHAT? WILL THE BLACK
HOLE GROW? WILL IT BE A DANGER TO THE EARTH?
As for strangelets, CERN scientists point out that they have never been proven to exist. They said that even if these particles formed inside the
Collider they would quickly break down.
IF YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW IF STRANGELETS EXIST, THEN HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY WILL QUICKLY BREAK DOWN IF FORMED?
The truth is, desire can sometimes override reason.
These scientist desire to do this, so they minimize any danger.
It's human nature. There have been times in the past where I wanted to do something and people said don't do it, there could be trouble. My desire
to do it cancelled out the trouble and I did it. Sometimes there was no trouble and sometimes trouble hit me in the face.
With human nature, alot of times it's I should have listened.
These scientist are like kids in a candy store, so there not looking at this in an objective fashion.
Will it happen? Probably not.
Are the dangers being downplayed in order to get things going? Yes
