  • Scientists find belief in the unproven or imaginary illogical. I've noticed it isn't as if they're all atheist. Some speak as if studying the cosmos is about looking at "god"...but they don't subscribe to a particular religion generally, because the archeology shows those to be creation myths.

      I enjoyed PBS's "The Power of Myth"(a 6 part conversation between Bill Moyers and the author of a textbook used in grade school on mythology (Joseph Campbell). I REALLY enjoyed that. Reason comforts me.

      I must admit I have not yet watched the few things I bookmarked about the CERN controversy. But it seems I'll likely find it's like the flat earth thing....religious people trying to make some scary fiction out of reality to fit their expectations. They think we're opening the doorway to hell. Well, there would have to actually BE a hell for that to happen, wouldnt there? mm.. But I will be checking that out before i judge it because it might be intereting to read the basis of the fear we are reaching to another dimension somehow.

      I couldnt find The Power Of Myth series on yourube. Thats a shame. LOVED that. Very deep thoughtful stuff. Here's some bits and pieces. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGx4IlppSgU&list=PL352922ACB3A0D000 But the series is available from PBS online for one interested enough to pay for a copy. .... I also treasured the Cosmos series Carl Sagan did in the 80's. But if you're religious at all you may not like his opinion of "beliefism" (he thinks it's primitive fear-based caveman think). BUT he did do a marvelous job of showing us what and where man is..in time and in space. I think that's a fascinating thing to watch, even now, still. As he explains that we are all stardust...one might get struck with how egotistical it is for humans to insist they know all about what the universe is and why, because they made something up to satiate their need to know!

      The main CERN controversy is that they were trying to make mini black holes.

      Wow. Sounds risky! Maybe they should move the experiment to DC, in case it works.

      The US version of CERN is called FERNLAB.
