Large Hadron Collider to start up Wednesday

Here we go again!

In the most complex scientific experiment ever undertaken, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be switched on Wednesday, accelerating sub-atomic particles to nearly the speed of light before smashing them together.

The LHC was started up in September 2008 but shut down after only a week due to a helium leak that followed an electrical problem.

Critics have contended that the machine could produce a black hole that could eat the Earth or something equally catastrophic.

Supporters have said that the experiment mega-experiment this week is the holy grail of cosmic science to finding an elusive particle known as the God Particle.
"Then they said, 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves..." All I can say to those attempting a search for the divine in all the wrong places at the potential expense of the earth is, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it:

And the LORD said, 'Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.' So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.' Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth." (Genesis 11:1-9)

Are you seriously saying that there is a creator, and that this creator of yours cares what happens on this minuscule little speck of a rock in the incredibly vast universe?

There are known to be countless black holes out there. Even if it was possible that we apes create a big one, why would it matter to your "Lord"?

Are you THAT arrogant?

Arrogant? I do not believe it's arrogant to have faith in something that is Greater than ourselves.

Yes, the Lord cares very deeply for His children, all of them, believers and non-believers. He is your creator, too.

He is out there: shown in His universe- “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world” (Psalm 19:1-4).

God loves us deeply. God does not love us because we are lovable or because we deserve His love. If anything, the opposite is true. The state of mankind since the fall is one of rebellion and disobedience.

First John 4:8 and 16 tell us that “God is love.” Since it is God's essential nature to love, He demonstrates His love by lavishing it on undeserving people who are in rebellion against Him. Because God’s very nature is love, He must demonstrate love, just as He must demonstrate all His attributes because doing so glorifies Him. Glorifying God is the highest, the best, and the most noble of all acts.

The height of arrogance is the failure to glorify the One who created the universe, the worlds, and us.

I am glad you are sounding the trumpet. Either Fermilab or CERN is going to open the GATE for the fallen angels to walk on earth once more. I pray this is the time Jesus will come to keep His church from such pressure and dilusion. When they (aliens) come they will probably carry and impart supernatural powers on world leaders who are opposed to Israel and the Church.
