http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20100221/sc_afp/sciencephysicscern_20100221142743 CERN is getting ready to start up the worlds most powerful atom smasher and hopes to learn secrets of the universe! Oooooohhhh! Obviously anyone who knows me, knows I dont subscribe to the big bang theory, but lets say for a second I did. Lets say, I believe the universe started from a tiny singularity and exploded into the entire universe with the force and energy never seen before. Now...here is my favorite line in that article... "But CERN now wants to reach 7.0 TeV to try to recreate conditions close to the Big Bang, and run it at those levels for 18 to 24 months" Now...does anyone else see something wrong with this? In the big bang...there was a big explosion. Scientists want to recreate these conditions...here...on Earth. Call me crazy, but wouldnt a big bang most likely wipe out everything within a few million light years? According to scientists, temperatures during the big bang were so hot that particles moved at relativistic speeds. So...lets create those conditions shall we? I mean...even though scientists have no idea what really was happening during the big bang and its all a bunch of theorys, lets f*** around with it and see what happens? Whats the WORST that could happen if you believe in the big bang? I mean besides getting temperatures so hot that they burn through other particles and keep going like one of those fires in California that they have every year.
