I think you may have misinterpreted that. If they created a black hole, that means they wouldve created a mass so heavy its collapsed in on itself. That also means the Earth wouldve pretty much imploded
Sorry but that is a ridiculous scenario
Microscopic black holes are thus a paradigm for convergence. At the intersection of astrophysics and particle physics, cosmology and field theory, quantum mechanics and general relativity, they open up new fields of investigation and could constitute an invaluable pathway towards the joint study of gravitation and high-energy physics. Their possible absence already provides much information about the early universe; their detection would constitute a major advance. The potential existence of extra dimensions opens up new avenues for the production of black holes in colliders, which would become, de facto, even more fascinating tools for penetrating the mysteries of the fundamental structure of nature.
It should be stated, in conclusion, that these black holes are not dangerous and do not threaten to swallow up our already much-abused planet. The theoretical arguments and the obvious harmlessness of any black holes that, according to these models, would have to be formed from the interaction of cosmic rays with celestial bodies, mean that we can regard them with perfect equanimity.

This collider gives me the creeps, and I usually dont care about most things.

There are just to many unknowns with this project, and yet they move forward with calculations of what may happen or what may not. They are clutching for straws. This is theoretical physics and the potential results grounded in hypothetical data. Perhaps, more thought should have been put into this project, before going forward?
As some have already mentioned, this type thing may be beyond us, in our evolutionary progression? I have heard ideas of mini black holes forming, strangelets, recreating another universe, unlocking another dimension, and all kinds of horrific events. Like the old saying goes, "Curiosity killed the cat." I wonder if there has been an increase in UFO activity around CERN lately with this particle accelerator back online? Personally, I think these scientists are rolling the dice on guesses. They have no idea, what is in store from their experiments. All they have are equations, but nothing substantive to put the public and other physicists at ease with the results. I wonder if Albert Einstein would sanction such work?

I believe our universe is about to be reborn. Every so often an intelligent species creates an LHC, which then creates a strangelet, which then results in a 'big crunch' which then results in a 'big bang' and it all starts over. Oh well was fun while it lasted.

Might be interesting to head over and check out the list of particle accelerators up until now. The LHC is not new technology.
I posted that link once, and got called a disinformation agent
Its not my fault that particle accelerators already exist, and have existed and operated for a long time
