A story about the Large Hadron Collider, the so called Doomsday machine kicked off controversy about cutting edge science again this week.

So the Large Hadron Collider worried you,did it? If you have forgotten it is the machine that will, according to the people who built it, recreate  conditions as they existed in the billionth of a second after the "Big Bang," the alleged starting point of time and the Universe . You were quite right too, scientists have a very tenuous grasp of reality. The first thing to understand is there is no more hard scientific evidence for The Big Bang than for the Book Of Genesis. I don't believe either but I'm one of those people who does not feel a need to explain to myself how the Universe began.

Big Bang is a scientific necessity, a point zero from which time and distance can be measured. Because the Big Bang Theory was created to meet Einstein's need to make his equations work it is in fact as much myth as any of the creation myths of ancient and modern religions.

We will not in the foreseeable future be able to travel back in time to observe what happened right after the big bang if indeed there was a Big Bang so the exercise, were its aims as publicly stated, would be pointless.

Assigned Reading
Big Bang or Damp Squib
A scientific deconstruction of Big Bang Theory

Religion is a matter of belief and it is wise to think of Big Bang in the same category. It does not stand up to logical analysis but if people are determined to believe it nothing wil change their minds. 

The real aim of the experiment is probably to find an inexhaustible source of clean, free power. Peter Higgs, a British physicist published a theory 50 years ago which proposes the boson, a sub atomic particle, is the source of the binding energy that in our physical dimension gives matter its mass. As I understand it, Higgs theory goes that a boson, a patricle of such slight mass itself as to be virtually undetectable like the nutrions that bombard us constantly (look out, ther's one coming you way now... oh no, my warning was too late, it smashed right through your brain...are you OK?)

We all have hundreds of nutrinos an hour ripping right through our body tissue and never notice. They are bundles of energy that have hardly any mass, about as much substance as Obama's CV in fact. Higgs theorized that as energy is a wave, the waves from the boson travel indefinitely through space from the source. Thus, because of the boson, each atom is almost as big as the Universe itself. Bizarrely this idea has echoes in The Bible and the Hindu Rig Veda which expresses it like this: Brahman (God) is so great the whole Universe is contained within it and yet so small its whole is contained withing the smallest thing. Telling a scientist that is like fixing a piece of bacon to a puppy's tail.

The obvious flaw in the idea that capturing Bosons could provide energy to run our light bulbs, computers and machines is that nobody can know what would happen if we start sucking that enegy away from the job it has been doing if Higgs is right. Everything might start falling apart.

So the LHC is yet another example of how scientists get carried away with an idea and don't really think through the consequences.

Like the mysterious theoretical force of Higgs theory, gravity and magnetism have so far defied scientific explanation. It would perhaps be better if scientists just stuck to the reply Edison gave when asked to explain electricity.
"It works,"
he said. So far for all the millions of hours expended on study nobody has improved on that.

For the curious here is a site where a number of flaws in scientific thinking are exposed bu applying common sense to the assumptions of Einstein and others.

The Einstein Hoax Do not necessarily belive what you read here but consider it.

And for a more tongue - in - cheek look at the Big Bang Theory:
Before Big Bang - Part 1
Before Big Bang - Part 2
