Is the end of the world TODAY

This Saturday the most advanced scientific instrument ever built will be switched on in Geneva.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been built to test current theories for particle physics and scientists will try and recreate the conditions that existed just after the Big Bang by smashing parts of atoms together at high speeds.

When activated the collider could show one of the most elusive particles in our Universe, the Higgs boson, also called the "God particle". This observation could confirm the Standard Model of physics unifying three of the four known fundamental forces: electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force, leaving out just gravity.

However, other more dangerous particles will also be produced for which searches are planned, such as black holes, and never seen before particles of matter, and even now, the architects of what is being termed a "Doomsday" machine, the U.S. Department of Energy, Fermilab, the National Science Foundation and CERN are being sued in federal court over fears that this experiment may in fact destroy the planet.

Also our old friend Nostradamus words ring from the grave with this grim prediction:

Nostradamus quatrain 9 44:

Leave, leave Geneva every last one of you,
Saturn will be converted from gold to iron,
"Raypoz" will exterminate all who oppose him,
Before the coming the sky will show signs.

Did Nostradamus predict the Large Hadron Collider? Will the Earth disappear into a black hole of its own making?

Oh woe is me! I finally get a job interview and the world ends!

What time today, I remeber reading about this in Dan Browns Angels and Demons, holy smokes I thought it was made up.

If I remember correctly it is deep under ground.

Bet the internet goes down when they fire it up! :-D

The initial particle beams are due for injection in August 2008,[2] the first attempt to circulate beam through the entire LHC is scheduled for September 10, 2008,[3] and the first high-energy collisions are planned to take place after the LHC is officially unveiled, on October 21, 2008

dont know what it means but we may have a respite before it really happens.

This text on Nostradamus from Snopes is pretty accurate:

The French physician and astrologer Nostradamus penned numerous quatrains … The French physician and astrologer Nostradamus penned numerous quatrains populated by obscure imagery that the credulous have ever after attempted to fit to the events of their times. These predictions can often ring somewhat true because the images employed are so general they can be found in almost every event of import, but by the same token the prophecies are never dead-on fits because the wordings are far too general. Not that this stops anyone from believing in them; our society's need for mysticism runs far too deep

Somehow I doubt the LHC is going to end the world however it does draw plenty of attention to the device which I suspect is the intention. To create a blackhole the device would need to squeeze Earth down to just a few mm in diameter or one of the other planets in the system, there is no power to do such a thing.

...so do i bother tidying up? or not :lol:

I bloody hope not... Its my Birthday!
