Big Bang theory could be debunked by Large Hadron Collider

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/large-hadron-collider/11489442/Big-Bang-theory-could-be-debunked-by-Large-Hadron-Collider.html

The detection of miniature black holes by the Large Hadron Collider could prove the existence of parallel universes and show that the Big Bang did not happen, scientists believe.

The particle accelerator, which will be restarted this week, has already found the Higgs boson – the God Particle – which is thought to give mass to other particles.

Now scientists at Cern in Switzerland believe they might find miniature black holes which would reveal the existence of a parallel universe.

And if the holes are found at a certain energy, it could prove the controversial theory of ‘rainbow gravity’ which suggests that the universe stretches back into time infinitely with no singular point where it started, and no Big Bang.

The theory was postulated to reconcile Einstein’s theory of general relativity – which deals with very large objects, and quantum mechanics – which looks at the tiniest building blocks of the universe. It takes its name from a suggestion that gravity's effect on the cosmos is felt differently by varying wavelengths of light.


So there's a hole in the space-time fabric at 9 on Monday night? Bazinga!

4. String theory, at least what little of it I understand

 

with relative clarity, predicts, in fact demands the existence of at least ten dimensions of space and one of time. Perhaps our universe came into being as a result of a collision between two branes carrying other universes, ripping a hole in spacetime.

Brian Greene's "The Hidden Reality" is a terrific read on the subject of multiple universes, string theory and generally mind-roasting science at the cutting edge.

6. Our universe came into being as a result of an artistic experiment...

...for details, see Heinlein's "The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag".
The Bird is cruel.

5. I misread this as "hardon collider"--Big bang indeed.

12. That typo almost got into one of my papers

A fundamentalist wrote to tell us the LHC would cause the earth to cleave and Satan to pop out and assume dominion over the earth. Unfortunately for this guy, he misspelled the word "hadron" by flipping the D and R...fortunately, the phone is nearby.

9. So it would go from being the Big Bang Theory...

...to just being the Big Whoop Theory?

10. Probably more like...

The Big Bong Theory and we're all just a figment of some stoner's imagination...
