According to an article published on the Telegraph, CERN, the organization behind the project, has been bombarded with calls, faxes and e-mails from concerned, wanna-be scientists assuming that the LHC will end the universe as we know it. Yes, folks, they believe the universe, which is billions of years old, can be destroyed by an insignificant, man-made machine. Don’t you find this just a bit ridiculous? Reactions like the ones the LHC tries to replicate have been happening on a galactic-level for far longer than what our mind can conceive, so I don’t think there’s really a reason why anyone should worry.

If you do some research on these wannabe scientists you will find affiliations with Jehovah's witness's, Seventh Day Adventists and Mormons.
They simply do not want scientists to find the god particle which can disprove many things about religion.
Many of the worlds top scientists not even affiliated with the project have already stated its harmless as it does not posses enough energy to do any significant damage.
People just don't understand to make a planet eating black hole you would need more energy than the sun has.
