Hysterical Loons Attempt To Hold Back Development Of The Species – Again!
According to the Grauniad this morning there are actually people who are against scientific advance and the knowledge we will gain through the use of the Large Hadron Collider at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. It turns out that some of these opponents are actual scientists rather than just smelly hippies who will extol the dangers of science before attempting to align your chakra’s for you.That these scientists are not physicists or mathematicians I find rather telling.
These intellectually stunted buffoons have now launched a legal challenge against the turning on of the LHC in a week and a half. They had previously attempted to get an injunction to prevent the LHC being turned on but thankfully sanity prevailed and the judge residing threw the challenge out on its ear yesterday. The court has still to rule on whether the LHC breaches the right to life in the European convetion on human rights.
Professor Otto Rössler the German chemist who is one of the more vocal dim wits claims that the collider will produce mini black holes that will consume the Earth from the inside out. This may sound scary, especially when it comes from the mouth of a professor. However the guy is a professor in chemistry not physics. Note the lack of opposition from the people who actually study things like black holes, you know PHYSICISTS!! The same people who have been using particle accelerators for the past thirty years. Admittedly all the ones that have been used so far have been smaller than the LHC but the earth gets beaten about every single day by particle collisions much, much stronger than those the LHC will be able to create. The great thing about the LHC is that it allows these collisions to be studied in a controlled environment.
And now environmentalists, they would have to get involved the fucking backward facing scum, in Hawaii are launching a suit to get the US government to intervene and delay the switch on of the LHC. Whilst I’m not too worried about the European court giving in to these fools the case in the US is slightly more concerning. I mean they allow their kids to get taught that the world was made 6000 years ago by some weirdy beardy sky daddy.
Hopefully common sense will prevail and the LHC will get turned on on time and when the results get back we will know even more about how our universe grew and developed from the beginning of time and space.
