Alarmist crackpots try to halt scientific research

3/31/2008 | 10:46 PM | Evolved Rationalist

Just when you thought that creationist dumbfucks must be the worst anti-science raving lunatics around, these goons come along.

The builders of the world's biggest particle collider are being sued in federal court over fears that the experiment might create globe-gobbling black holes or never-before-seen strains of matter that would destroy the planet.
The Large Hadron Collider is going to fucking destroy the goddamn planet? Wow. Just wow.

Haven't we heard the exact sort of alarmist cries used in what seems like a gazillion previous situations? Haven't we noticed that the alarmist cries never seems to materialize - simply because those ranting and raving don't have a clue about the science behind what they are so vehemently opposing?

Oooooh, genetic engineering is bad bad bad bad because we will end up with Frankenstein monsters!! We should not play god, we don't care about the benefits, the slippery slope is too dangerous!! Ooooh, artificial intelligence is bad bad bad bad because the machines would someday take over and imprison us!! Brain implants!! Zombies!! FRANKENSTEINNNNNN!!!

Sound familiar?

Those idiotic freaks obviously cannot tell the difference between particle physics and science fiction. The LHC creating black holes, and those black holes gobbling up the whole fucking planet? In a rational age, none of those goons would be given the time of day in court, but sadly, we are living in an age where science and scientists are viewed with distrust and fear (yes, a large part of this is due to religious dumbfucks and liars). Scientists are portrayed by the media as mad, imbalanced, and weird. Saturday morning cartoons portraying the 'mad scientist' tells kids that science is something strange and all scientists spend their time:
  • blowing things up
  • preparing for world domination with scary-looking machines
  • laughing maniacally
  • plotting evil schemes that are always thwarted by superheroes with absurd costumes
Add the above to complicated particle physics and the LHC, and we've got a recipe for lunatical alarmists wetting their pants and pooping all over the courts. If the fucktarded buffoons win this case, it will send a clear message to the public that they can simply halt scientific research they disagree with/don't understand/have a theistarded objection to/etc by going to court. Although they might not win every case, science as we know it will be ruined. If you think that I am being alarmist, just think if we did not go ahead with every scientific experiment that caused some form of protest. If this is allowed to happen, we would start sliding back towards the Dark Ages (remember, where scientists were burnt at the stake). Theistards, alarmists and general anti-science kooks would undoubtedly be happy, but do you really want to live in that sort of world?
Representatives at Fermilab in Illinois and at Europe's CERN laboratory, two of the defendants in the case, say there's no chance that the Large Hadron Collider would cause such cosmic catastrophes. Nevertheless, they're bracing to defend themselves in the courtroom as well as the court of public opinion.
Ah, if you cannot win at science, try pushing your crap through the courts and try to twist the law to push your crackpot ideas on the unsuspecting public. Where have we heard this before, eh?

*cough* Dover *cough*
The Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, is due for startup later this year at CERN's headquarters on the French-Swiss border. It's expected to tackle some of the deepest questions in science: Is the foundation of modern physics right or wrong? What existed during the very first moment of the universe's existence? Why do some particles have mass while others don't? What is the nature of dark matter? Are there extra dimensions of space out there that we haven't yet detected?
Oh, and scientists should give up this groundbreaking research simply because some alarmist anti-science goons need some particle physics lessons? Wonder why I am becoming increasingly worried about the future of science in the face of so much stupidity?
Saying something is absolutely impossible doesn't always come easy. Some scientists find it difficult to state categorically that such-and-such a theoretical catastrophe has no chance of happening, and Fermilab spokeswoman Judy Jackson told me that the doomsayers have "cynically distorted" that natural reluctance to rule out even the most outlandish theoretical possibilities.
The alarmists obviously have no clue how science works - and that is a clear-cut case. The fucked-up part is that the alarmists would use the fact that scientists often avoid saying that something is 'absolutely impossible' to play up to public fears. As the public already fears things that they don't understand, the alarmists may be able to evoke strong emotions among their ignoramus base.

I am not saying that safety regulations and precautions are unnecessary - they are. However, obviously ludicrous claims should be laughed out of court, thus saving everyone involved a large amount of time and money. Alarmists with no good science on their side should be publicly humiliated and exposed for the crackpots they are before more retarded morons jump on the bandwagon. Sometimes, it is necessary to put a foot down and say enough is enough.

    To you everything science is good, when science blows everyone up not even a test tube will survive for you nerdtoy to kiss!!

    Some things are the mysteries of God. The big bang is an evil materialist lie that the Darwinists push on us, thankfully AiG is exposing Darwinist lies!

    2. Did you read the post?
    3. Darwin did not have anything to do with the Big Bang.

    Nice post fella. It is a shame the Xtian trolls can't keep to their own kind. I actually like it, believe it or not. It seems they troll for two reasons, to spread their love trying to convert us (usually it comes out as the hate they claim not to have), or because they are curious of what being free feels like.

    I say, let them take the scientists to court. Something tells me scientists have more resources to fight, and win, this case than any group of fundamentalist radicals.

    Dear creationist,

    The only thing 'aig' exposes is its own ignorance.

    While I'm all for scientific progress as it is essential to understanding our world and how it works, we do have a responsibility to be careful when exploring new and potentially dangerous areas, such as nuclear science and anything to do with smashing particles together. Whilst these guys are probably just a group of ignorant whack jobs its probably a good idea to have someone on hand to put the breaks on if things get dangerous. I'd just suggest getting someone who doesnt talk to invisible friends. :P

    The amount of energy typically involved in the particle collisions is, from my understanding, so low you might as well argue that living an everyday life is dangerous for the universe.

    What's the matter with all of you?

    Haven't you seen Stephen King's new movie The Mist? Do you really want forty-foot paisley colored bugs snatching children at the local supermarket?

    You Darwinists like to play God, even though you don't believe in him!!

    God help us all.

    you LHC supportings are a bunch of clown porn fag idiots...myself, i support genetic engineering as it is total useful for betterment of man, but; LHC? that shits for the mother fuckin birds and clown porn fagz...

    "Do you really want forty-foot paisley colored bugs snatching children at the local supermarket?"
    Square-cube law, man. Square-cube law.
    Let me guess, you don't vaccinate your dog for rabies either.

    I about fainted when I saw the size and length of this thing. With that sentence in mind, you should also know that I have trouble not calling it a "hardon collider." True story.
