Two physicists speculate Godor "time agents from the future"shut it down to keep them from discovering the God Particle.
REPORTER'S NOTE: I've come across a lot of quirky articles in publishing intriguing news, but this rates up there with the most odd of all. What is odd, is that two such brilliant scientists would publicly proclaim their hypothesis that God not only exists, but interevened in their scientific endeavors. Wow. Not only that, but the addendumthat it could have been God OR "time agents from the future"made me wonder. If these men were schooled in the divine supernatural, they may actually have a different name for these so called "time agents from the future": Angels. -Teresa Neumann
Physicists Holger Bech Nielsen of the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and Masao Ninomiya from the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kyoto have published a paper called The Search for Effect of Influence From Future in Large Hadron Collider, in which they claim that the world's largest particle accelerator failed one week after being switched on by either "divine intevention" or "time agents from the future."
According to a report in The Tech Generation Dailyas well as the New York Times and The Telegraph UKthey also contend that "the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveller who goes back in time to kill his grandfather."
As noted in the New York Times article, the collider was built by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, "to accelerate protons to energies of seven trillion electron volts around an 18-mile underground racetrack and then crash them together into primordial fireballs." CERN is the organization that made news last week when one of its scientists was arrested on charges of terrorism.
Nielson and Ninomiya also reportedly speculated that God may have shut it down to keep them from discovering the "God Particle." Said Nielson: "It must be our prediction that all Higgs producing machines shall have bad luck. [God] rather hates Higgs particles, and attempts to avoid them."
Nielson is reportedly known in physics as one of the founders of string theory and a deep and original thinker. As Niels Bohr, Dr. Nielsen's late countryman and one of the founders of quantum theory, once told a colleague: "We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question that divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct."
“Time agents from the future”? These guys sound like cooks.
The brilliant scientists are communicating to the mass of idiots that the “reporter” helped to create.
These guys must be hinting for an invite to be on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, or maybe they will hold out for Art Bell Himself.
If they’d leave out God and throw in a few shadow people they’d be in the running.
Well, we know the Texas Super Collider was cancelled by Clinton BECAUSE it a Bush-sponsered project ina Bush-voting state that was NOT in one of Friends of Bill “protected economic zones” ....
So I guess that “God does play with dice”. And His (enemy’s) politicians cheats.
Would love to have a talk with these guys. Would be fasinating.
Well, usually scientists aren’t all that spiritually oriented. To have them suspect some intervening power is a bit out of the norm.
Tower of Babel update? If God providentially stepped in, more likely that it was revision of His promise to Noah, that the world would not be destroyed.
I had a list in my mind of various possible explanations and something very close to that was on the list.
Such a paradox is not possible. If it didn’t happen, it never happened. If it did, it did.
Yes. The souffle collapsed because a Higgs particle traveled back in time to destroy it.
They must have forgotten to add the /sarc tag to their article so the good people at bcn and here could understand the humorous intent.
But I thought the CERN “Safety Assessment Group” assured the world they were “pretty sure” their project was safe and that creating a microscopic black hole “probably” wouldn’t matter.
At least they are not roosters.
What? They've already ruled out all parallel-dimension explanations?
The NY TImes article was better
