Ok, having read all 7 of these pages I think I can add something to this discussion that SHOULD stop a lot of this stupid hate and ignorance.
FACT #1 - Not one single person on this planet knows EVERYTHING.
FACT #2 - The total combined population of this planet yields a less then 5% of what we truly know about the Universe and how it operates.
Now to all those that say the LHC won't produce a MASS ENERGY DISCHARGE, my question to you is... HOW DO YOU KNOW?
My sub-question to you is... Can you name all the particles they plan on smashing together?
Another question to you... Can you tell me with 1000% certainty... yes 1000%... What that collision will do?
I know I can say with 1000% certainty that you do not know what will happen because if you did... Then someone else would know, and we wouldn't need
to perform these tests.
Having said that... There is a lot of speculation that when Matter is met with Anti-matter, there is a massive explosion.
Where is the proof? Have we as the Earth species made both matter and anti-matter? And have we put them together?
Again, no... we haven't. If we have... BY CHANCE... then it didn't make a massive explosion.
My posit on the whole matter anti-matter scenario is simple math.. (THOUGH THE TOPIC AND SCIENCE BEHIND IT ISN'T SIMPLE)
There is one apple on the table and there is one hungry kid in the room. Kid eats the apple to solve his hunger and leaves the room.
Both resulting in the same... Nothing left in the room, though the room stays intact.
Ok, now onto what can be said of the LHC.
The scientists involved with the project have a large % certainty of what will happen when they perform the operation.
But their combined % of knowledge still weighs less then 1% of the Universal knowledge.
So who can say with 1000% certainty that when they smash two particular particles together.... They won't go boom?
The general idea is that the LHC might create black holes.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the general idea about black holes is that they suck in everything.
And please don't say they can shut them down.
If they know they can shut them down, then they have made them before. So why need to make them again etc
If they theorize what can shut it down then it is still only a THEORY!
They don't know that if they decide to chuck more particles at the black hole to cause it to collapse, that it won't expediently increase its
Having said all this and IF you are still reading what I am writing then at least you still have an open mind to what others have to say.
I will give you that Logical Magician didn't really give us that much information. But how much information do you think your Governments would give
you on such a topic?
May I remind you all to challenge the information we receive OPENLY and without bias?
Just because he can not give us any more information than he has already provided doesn't necessarily mean that he isn't right.
It just means we have exhausted that avenue of information.
Let's say for a moment that the OP is correct.
Now his source would more then likely have a THEORY of what would happen IF this thing would go POP.
A fair enough one two in my personal opinion.
Unfortunately, due to what we know ... rather... the lack of what we know of things, we really can't prove or disprove this claim until the date
Does that mean what he posted was ultimately useless to us? And that he shouldn't have posted it in the first place?
I don't think so. I like to think, I like being made to think. It never hurts me...
All I am really trying to say is that when someone posts some information that you can't prove to a 1000% certainty... DON'T vilify them... Move on
if you don't agree. Or at least, try and provide some insight to the topic and be constructive.
I will leave this post with one last law of our known world.
