they say it would take 4ys for the earth to get sucked in
so basically this is the biggest event in history supporting the 2012 end of the world prophecy

Lighten up guys. Look at the bright side of a runaway black hole suddenly appearing anywhere on the French/Swiss border, some tens of meters below the surface.
1. We'll get some killer documentaries filmed from the edge of whatever gets sucked in before the black hole drops into the core of the earth.
2. Europe will be a cooling lava lake so we won't have to worry about the Russians any more. And forget the rising Euro, the dollar will be king again.
3. All the physics types out there will be able to calculate about when the lights will go off. With that detail out of the way, we can forget about planning for retirement and plan on playing until the very end...

I think religious people are more concerned with the LHC. Especially if the LHC project can determine how the "big bang" theory happened. Another blow to religion where science has once again proved that there is indeed no God and the bible is nothing but a fictional story.
As someone else mentioned, people thought the testing of the A-Bomb would start a chain reaction and consume the world. Guess what, it didn't.
If scientists didn't do research and tests, we wouldn't have the advancements we have today now would we?
I will admit when I first heard about the LHC I was ignorant enough to fall for all the fear BS about it. But the more I read about the LHC, the more I realized all the fears of earth being sucked into a black hole etc is just nonsense.
Oh and the theories about 2012, nonsense too. For decades and decades people have been predicting the end of the world, and yet we are still here. Remember Y2K? Nothing catastrophic happened now did it? Once 2012 passes, some nut will predict another year the world will end, probably 2020. Point is, no one can predict anything.
And the Mayan calender that ends at 2012 is not a prediction of a doomsday event, its just a cycle that ends and then starts over again.
Read this about 2012, it should put things into perspective
No doomsday in 2012
