It’s been interesting to watch to say the least. For months, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) project has received much criticism for their hand in destroying the universe. Many have predicted doomsday scenarios of apocalyptic proportions which were mocked by the internet:
Two nightmare scenarios, two ends of the world. In the first, there is little warning. For maybe a month there would be no sign that life was about to come to an abrupt and nasty end for all living things on Earth.
Then, earthquakes would start unexpectedly, alerting geologists that something terrible, unimaginable, was amiss.
After a few days, these seismic disturbances would reach catastrophic proportions.
Cities would be levelled, the oceans would rise and wash in a series of mega-tsunamis that would attack the world’s coasts, killing millions.
Scientists and skeptics alike, many of which I know, called it “fairy tales” and continued with “let’s just see what happens”. Early this morning, the LHC was powered on to perform tests to send a particle around this massive structure. While many physicists warned that this stage wasn’t “going to do anything” because no collisions were taking place, I began to wonder what kind of effects this type of energy surge would produce.
Something did happen today.
I have no evidence that it’s linked in any way to the LHC, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen this. There were 4 major earthquakes today caused a major shake in the Pacific rings of fire. Here they are:
This is not a joke. This is not a ploy. This is real. 4 major earthquakes in a single day, and it just so happened to be the day the LHC was powered on. I’m not saying one caused the other because I have no definite proof, but I’m also not saying that it isn’t possible. If you dismissed the fear of what the LHC could possibly bring to the earth, I asked that you take another hard look and consider the possibility that you could be wrong. Consider the possibility that you don’t know everything and also consider the possibility that there are forces out there which are much greater than our understanding, some of which are not meant to be tampered with.
Update: 09/14/2008 11:10AM – Note the category 6+ earthquakes in the above screenshot for 09/10 – 09/11. I apologize for the confusion. Commenter Rob notes the Iran earthquake occurred seconds after a local news broadcasts determined the LHC to be operational. He asks if it’s a coincidence. Some would say yes, but I haven’t come to that conclusion. It’s official, I’m being called a nut for even bringing this up. That’s quite alright, I’ve been called worse
