It is so much easier to rely on revealed "knowledge" than to use science.

By the way, CNN interviewed a scientist this morning saying there was no
danger from the CERN experiment because most black holes are the size of the
sun and this was a mosquito by comparison.

According to Wikipedia, a mosquito weighs 2.5mg. That mass would yield
22.5x10^13 Joules, about 62 million KWh. Maybe that is not the same as
getting sucked into a black hole but you wouldn't want to be standing next
to that mosquito when it got converted.

Hey all,

What has happened here in the USA?  Have we completely abandoned our 
quest for scientific knowledge and the unknown?  To read the comments 
posted on CNN regarding the beginning experiments with the Hadron 
Collider, one would think we are opening Pandora's box and the wrath of God.

If you want to know how the world began, read Genesis.  End of discussion.
The money would be better spent in Dalfour.
If the scientists say the experiments are safe and know the expected 
outcome, why perform the experiment in the first place?
They'll create a black hole to swallow the earth.
Black holes will be developed for military evil.

I'm dismayed to think that we had enough interest in the unknown to land 
a manned craft on the moon 40 years ago.  My, but how we've regressed as 
a nation!  We were once a world leader in technology and innovation, and 
today it hardly seems that we're even participants. 

Joe, N6DGY
