You know what, someone has to say this as some time....
The tests being carried out by the LHC will prove
NOTHING about the origins of our universe.
All it will do is prove one theory
on the origins of our universe as possible.
Yes, it will likely prove that new matter (Higgs-particle) can be created through the interaction of extreme forces and particles of matter but there
which will tell us that this is how the universe was actually
Let us not lose sight of reality.
I could go and make paper out of papyrus but this does not PROVE that all paper is made out of papyrus and that it is the ONLY way paper can be made -
do you see what i mean?
All i'm saying is that this only makes one theory possible. There are many other just-as-speculative possibilities out there.
Which leads me to ask, why all this money and effort on something that, according to official statements, is made to "see what happens" and move
forward in our understanding of matter and partical physics....
Not a good reason to invest $6,000,000,000 if you ask me
Also i wanted to comment on the media
Am i the only one getting frustrated at ignorant lines such as "LHC device turned on and the world didn't end" - acting all "i told you so"...
I'm not saying that when the particles finally start colliding i think something disasterous will happen, but this holier than thou attitude
displayed by the media is really annoying coz they seriously have no clue what they're talkin bout!
What else can you expect from the news media tho
