As I said in another thread, the actual scientists who are working on this experiement have likened it to fearing your house will blow up because of the amount of energy used when turning on your living room light.

Fling your hands up and run down the streets screaming "the end draweth nigh!" if you like, but it simply can't physically happen.

End of story.

(and, ultimately, if the Earth is destroyed because of it, who's going to tell me I was wrong?)

OK...with all of this doom and gloom does anyone know how long the blackhole will exist? I don't know the exact figure, but it will be in the billionths of a second.

It is such a ridiculous number that it is: Point something too the power of a billionth of a second.

I would like too quote a number, look up all the resources, post a link and blah blah, but time doesn't allow me too at the moment.

Though in it's esscence IS very true.

The fact that a black hole would exist is very true, but for the amount of time IF it is sustained, is no reason for concern.

Start burnning your books....

Perhaps many civilizations thoughout the galaxy developed only until they started their version of CERN, and that's where all of the black holes in space came from.

Didn't the respected scientist Dr. Michio Kaku talk about this? Well he said that the energy from the tiny black holes cannot even light up a light bulb. So everyone can stop worrying about the LHC and worry about other more important issues.

but they will make 30 billion black holes per second
what if some black holes occupy the same space?

can't one black hole eat another, grow, then stay open longer?

did anyone see the movie the mist?
what if they open another dimension and something weird comes out of it?

Allow me to speak crazy now.
Anyone ever notice that Bush is a complete idiot?
Almost as if he was born yesterday and is just now learning how to be a human?

What if another race took over our planet and now they are trying to open up a dimensional portal to bring their overload here?

just thinking out loud.

What have we really got to loose?

As far as i know all our bodies die eventually anyway.
I would rather live in a world that strives to attain knowledge/wisdom
rather than a dead paranoid uninteresting world,where no-one grows spiritually/mentally and crucifies anyone who thinks creatively.

I say the potential benefits outweigh the small risk.

Would you say that if you had to turn it on and knew there was a slight possibility oyu are going to kill over 6 billion people plus uncountable numbers of other living creatures.

Has anyone stopped to think that ANY black hole, whether small or large, is bad? Black holes suck in everything, time included (a theory supported by scientists, not my own logic lol). So then a small black hole, no matter how long its duration is, would suck something in, causing a ripple effect. Also, is it just me that thinks that mini black holes do not occur naturally on earth, therefore creating mini black holes is unnatural, causing unknown damage to earth or unseen things.

**Scientists have been wrong about things before, what makes this test any different??**

Are you truly happy living in fear?

If all goes wrong are we going to know the difference?

Those who drive car's take other people's lives in their hand's,but the benefit
of getting to work on time seem's to outweigh the small risk(depending on who's driving).

You do know there's plenty more things that have the potential to kill everyone and with a higher certainty than that of the creation of a black hole. Best stock up on the bubble wrap & cotton wool if you're prepared to live your life in fear of "what if's"

Well this might be what the "Suicide Propheteers" have been looking for....

No, I do not live my life in fear, anyone who personally know me knows that to be true. A near death experience is fun, the end of the world is not.

If I do not trust the driver of a car I do not get in the car....I can't skip the planet incase something happens.

Yes there are plenty of things that could kill us all, but they are already's to late. The LHC has not yet been activated...

I will take the bubble wrap though, fun to pop...

You guys are all being silly this thing could not possibly be dangerous if it was dangerous than the scientists would run the risk of killing off the endangerd nothern spotted owl. Everyone knows that you cant do anything to harm them so the LHC must be safe.

I would have thought that this would have been secret stuff, with the possible events I've read here and on the web. Interesting that it is public knowledge.

posted on Sep, 2 2008 @ 01:28 PM
Because they needed funding and are re;atively sure nothing bad will happen.

Some people just don't want to settle for relatively sure...

posted on Sep, 2 2008 @ 01:32 PM
They need funding? I don't think so 4.4 billion isn't much in the grand sceme of things. I imagine there are other things costing a hell of a lot more. I can't see funding being a problem for this. Who would question it? Whoever does?

posted on Sep, 2 2008 @ 01:36 PM
Aye, perhaps not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but as far as I heard they asked for funding from countries.... Thus they went public probably not expection the reaction they got.

If more people would read information written by respected scientists, rather than those unfortunate individuals who seem to feed on fear, then it would be apparent that the forthcoming experiment poses no threat to our planet. I for one believe that the furtherment of our knowledge base is critical to our development and welcome the advancement that should follow.

I read somewhere that if the Collider does create a mini black hole, it will be 4 years before the earth is completely sucked into it. If this is true, then it fits the whole 2012 timeline.

All in all though, if it happens, it might not be a bad thing. Might be less painful than Nuclear Winter. Either way, humanity is headed for the crapper, and sooner or later it's going to be all over. Well, unless we get our heads out of our arses and change our ways. But let's be real here, that's never going to happen. Not unless something truly significant happens to warrant a massive evolutionary change in the human spirit/ego. Ego being the whole problem.
