Scientific experiment to uncover the origins of the universe...
...threatens to engulf the Earth!
The world holds its breath as the experiment begins
Ghada Zainal Abidin interviews Mohamed El Naschie
Despite all the preparations, severe conflicts in the views of scientists have emerged. An opposition group claims it represents the greatest threat to humanity. It could lead to disaster, swallowing the whole universe, and human extinction within just four years. According to their statement, the universe ends when the experiment begins... Glory be to God!
And to tell us the details of the experiment, and its secrets and risks, we have «news» from one of the top physicists in the world. He is the great Egyptian scientist Mohamed El Naschie. He has an important scientific theory bearing his name, and it is an extension of the theory of Einstein. This makes him one of the best scientists to ask about the complex CERN LHC experiment.
First we asked Dr. El Naschie to tell us some details about this experiment, and he said:
The experiment produces events which are strong collisions between small, rapidly moving particles of tremendous energy, using the world's largest particle accelerator. The experiment will continue for several months during which the speed of the particles is gradually increased, creating stronger and stronger collisions. From the data, scientists believe they can make important new discoveries about the moment of creation of the universe. Preliminary results will appear in six months, and final results in four years.
Question: There is a group of leading scientists in Europe and America who object to the test, and confirm that it carries a serious threat to the universe. What is the reality?
Mohamed El Naschie: Already there is a strong team of scientists who object to the experiment. The German scientist Otto Rössler and members of his group think that this experiment could result in a small black hole. The pro-LHC group expects the black hole to evaporate immediately. Rössler and the opposition group think the black hole could grow. With increasing growth, its attraction increases, and it soon starts to swallow everything around it. It goes out of control, swallowing the whole Earth. If that happens, the earth will disappear within four years. It will be preceded by very violent hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes.
El Naschie adds: The opposition group is trying to stop the experiment, going so far as to petition the European Parliament as an issue of human rights. The matter is currently being discussed. But the reality is that the pro-LHC team is stronger, especially with their huge investments and massive preparations. Many parties have an interest in the experiment going forward. In addition, the LHC scientists have waited a long time and have high expectations.
Question: What's your personal opinion about the experiment and its importance to the world?
El Naschie: In my scientific view it's an important experiment and will give great results never seen before. But on the other hand, this experiment will not return direct benefits to the community, or solutions to problems, despite the billions being spent on it. Because basically it's just an experiment. Therefore, despite my feeling that the experiment has scientific importance, I personally feel that the money could be more usefully spent, e.g., on nanotechnology, treating diseases, development of industries, and other human technologies of direct benefit to the community.
I support it, but...
Question: And what is your opinion on the likelihood of risks that it will swallow the universe?
Dr. Mohamed El Naschie: According to my scientific theory of space-time, my calculations indicate that the possibility of such fears does not exceed one in a billion. Although it's a small risk, it's worth putting off the experiment. The fate of the whole universe shouldn't be in the hands of any one individual. So, despite my support for the scientific merit of the experiment, I would wait a bit to ensure that studies are carried out regarding safety and risk.
Question: Might it happen that the experiment produces no scientifically interesting results?
Dr. El Naschie: That is possible, of course. It would be a disaster because it means the loss of all the billions spent on it.
Question: Can scientists turn back now?
Dr. El Naschie: Yes. The experiment could be stopped. But that would mean heavy losses for those in charge of the experiment. There are also several bodies that have material interests in the completion of the experiment; their interests cannot be stopped! Nor can the hopes of scientists for the anticipated results.
Last question: According to all religions, God created the universe. Why are the scientists themselves searching for the secrets of the origin of the universe? Mightn't there be some conflict with the religious and moral aspect, especially with the whole universe being exposed to danger?
After a long moment of silence Mohamed El Naschie said: Scientists include believers and atheists. But scientific work depends on thinking in scientific terms, about experiments and theories, always trying to push the limits of knowledge. In my opinion this does not conflict with the will of God because most scientific results lead to more faith in nature, and emphasis on the existence of an absolute power in the universe. Hence for a scientist who is a believer, science is a type of worship. For example, the Vatican's Pontifical Academy considered the LHC experiment, and expects it will confirm the Scriptures about Genesis, concerning the origin of the universe, eventually confirming the will of God. But the problem is the extent of the right of scientists to expose all the universe to risk. By solving the mystery of the beginning of the universe, they may bring about the universe's end. Glory be to God.
