My interest in the Large Hadron Collider has not waned, but only has grown. I feel that this machine and its imminent search to find the God Particle, is indicative of the kind of mindset that God pronounced would permeate the end of days, a replica of an attitude that permeated the beginning of days when He decided to send the Flood. “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” (Gen 6:5-8). We are told that the end of days would be like the time of Noah, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24:37).
To me, the LHC is a situation as in the time of Nimrod when he disobeyed God, made a city, and endeavored to build a tower so he could make a name for himself. The big bang machine under the Alps is not a flashy sign of the times like a volcano eruption or earthquake, nor is it a stressful one like a slow economic crash, but it is like the oil light on your car. It is a small light, easy to overlook, but failure to heed its warning results in total destruction of the car. The scientists who search for the fabric of the universe so they can make a name for themselves, dare to nickname it after the Almighty, while denying His existence are “always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.” It is as exactly Paul warned Timothy of godlessness in the last days (2 Tim 3:7).
“The CERN just tweeted that the LHC is ready to finally do what it is built for after a long series of delays. Tomorrow, March 30th, 8:30am, the LHC will start to colliding particles. The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is set to generate collisions at 7 TeV (3.5 TeV per beam). TeV stands for Tera electron volt and is a measure of energy. An eV unit of energy equal to approximately 1.602×10−19 J. More details on Wikipedia. CERN does not know when exactly they will actually detect a collision. As soon as it happens they will hold a media event and offer a live webcast. I am not sure if still some Earthlings believe that this will be the end of the world, but in any case we had a fun ride.”
LOL. Of course, the world will not end, but it will be re-created by God, and that will happen in His timing. The Large Hadron Collider particle smashing machine will close down for a lengthy period at the end of next year, but it looks like despite the many delays (signs) they are bulling ahead with their notion that they can (safely) recreate the Big Bang and find the “God particle.” I think at some point they will be surprised to actually find God, and He will not be pleased.
Under the Alps, CERN is all a-twitter at their upcoming moment. They have built it, tested, it, overcome delays, and now they are on the verge of the big bang. The scientists are excited at this near-culmination of a long-held dream. I am excited because I can’t wait to see what God will do. Either way, it is interesting times!
