The Hadron Collider and God...

... Scientists have always wondered about The Big Bang. What actually happened during it and immediately afterwards ? The Hadron Collider is attempting to duplicate conditions that will help answer these questions...but not it seems to help answer an even bigger question...What came before The Big Bang ?Now some scientists are claiming that "mysterious forces" - yikes ! -are at work sabotaging or jinxing their quest...

"SCIENTISTS claim the giant atom-smashing Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is being jinxed from the future to save the world.
In a bizarre sci-fi theory, Danish physicist Dr Holger Bech Nielsen and Dr Masao Ninomiya from Japan claim the LHC startup has been delayed due to nature trying to prevent it from finding the elusive Higgs boson, or "God particle".
They say their maths proves that nature will "ripple backward through time" to stop the LHC before it can create the God particle, like a time traveller who goes back in time to kill his grandfather.
“One could even almost say that we have a model for God,” Dr Nielsen says in an unpublished essay.
“He rather hates Higgs particles, and attempts to avoid them.”
"While it is a paradox to go back in time and kill your grandfather, physicists agree there is no paradox if you go back in time and save him from being hit by a bus," Dannis Overbye wrote in the New York Times.

"In the case of the Higgs and the collider, it is as if something is going back in time to keep the universe from being hit by a bus...." More here...

Is this clown still at it?

Good to see you back, Ayrdale.
