Well if it shows how matter is manifested from nothing then perhaps we can build a machine that manifests things out of nothing, I.E. free energy

Edit: The 'god particle' has a different name, its nicknamed the god particle because its a sub-atomic particle in everything

Thanks for all the replies.

And as for the title of the thread that got changed:

"CERN to Morons" was taken from the original title of the article I quoted from. Not to offend anyone, just keeping the same title as per the rules of ATS news citations.

So what are my thoughts on the issue? The LHC is going to be great and I believe it will lead to many many good things. I believe it will advance physics well beyond what it is now.

I thank you all for your replies and different inputs on it and have learned some new things.

Thanks especially to JTanker, TechSnow, and The Comte for the info provided.

CERN judging their own LHC is safe is like a drunk deciding he's all right to drive... with 6,700,000,000 passengers.
Who cares about a Higgs Boson particle or some quark gluon goop except a handful of frustrated geeks who have run out of ideas and have to experiment with forces they don't even understand. These freaking physicists waste money and energy time and time again building atom smasher after atom smasher and end up with more questions, not answers. Now they've built one so powerful they say themselves it will create mini black holes at the rate of one per second! Which would change your life more; knowing they found some particle or getting crushed and sucked into a black hole along with everyone and every thing you ever cared about?
That sound like a good risk vs. benefit to you?!? Just because you can't wrap your mind around it does not mean it can't happen.

This fact was presented on a TV show that I saw the other night. Micro-black holes are the least of peoples worries since, due to their minuscule size, they would soon evaporate. With billions of particles smashing every second there is a small chance that they may reconfigure to form a new particle. Strangelets are theoretical killer particles. In theory if a strangelet is created than when it bumps into another particle that particle also becomes a strangelet. This would continue until the entire earth is consumed. Earth and everything on it would become just a massive ball of strange matter floating in space.
