Fact check: Scientists at CERN are not opening a 'portal to hell'

The claim: Scientists at CERN are communicating with demonic entities and opening a portal to hell
In April, scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, restarted their particle accelerator – the world's largest and most powerful accelerator – after a three-year hiatus.

The accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, had undergone repairs and upgrades, and scientists plan to use it to crash protons together and learn more about the origins of the universe.

Nevertheless, social media users are suggesting that the machine has a different purpose. A Facebook post shared July 5 shows a TikTok video of a woman who claims that CERN scientists are using the machine to open a doorway for demons.

"If y’all don’t know about cern it’s a demonic/Evil machine that opens up portals to other dimensions/Hell/other spiritual worlds(not Heaven/or bosom of Abraham)and it brings in demons wicked spirits/High Evil Principalities," reads the caption of the post.

1. That's the front door of Mierda-Loco, not CERN.

Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'e entrate.

7. Canto III, vv. 1-9



Per me si va ne la città dolente,
per me si va ne l'etterno dolore,
per me si va tra la perduta gente.
Giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore;
fecemi la divina podestate,
la somma sapienza e 'l primo amore.
Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create
se non etterne, e io etterno duro.
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate.

11. An appropriate entrance to TFG's presidential library or.....

his eventual mausoleum........


It also looks like results of an artist making a bust of TFG modeled from his face at a typical MAGAt rally.

2. With all due respect to USA today

It is pretty absurd to give someone a national forum for their ideas just because they are a kook on tik tok. This is the modern day equivalent of the untreated schizophrenic with the “The end is near” sandwich board yelling on the corner.

We didn’t put those people in USA Today and we shouldn’t this person either unless the intent is to highlight the mental health crisis and point out that they need treatment.

14. I lost all interest after "social media users are suggesting..." in the article.

IMHO, "social media user suggestions" are a large part of that which troubles our nation today......

8. That brings to mind a stand-up comedy routine I saw ...

... some years back.

The comedian started by telling of some very lucky person who had just won a lottery jackpot for the second time. He said some statisticians calculated the odds against that at something like six trillion to one. (I don't remember the number, so I'm just picking a very large number, which still will illustrate the principle I'm trying to describe.)

Then he started talking about the large hadron collider and some experiment that some physicists were running on it. He said that there was a trillion-to-one (again, just pulling a large number out of the air) chance that their experiments would create a mini-black hole that would start swallowing stuff up and eventually end up swallowing up the whole planet Earth.

So then his punch line was that those scientists were doing something that had a six-times-greater chance of ending our whole planet, than something that had already in actual fact happened.

He's a comedian and I'm not, but the way he said it was hilarious.

10. I just Googled up an article about this.

After I posted this, I Googled up an article about it that says it is not possible for the large hadron collider to generate a small black hole that could swallow up the Earth. Still, though, the comedian's routine was hilarious.

Wasn't this the plot for the movie, "Stargate?"

16. There is a portal to hell.

We all went through it on November 8, 2016. Thankfully, we made it back.

21. Well, that certainly makes sense...

Portal to hell, I know some people I would like to send there.

People have always been afraid of things that they don't understand and the best way to attack them is through religion; the bar is very low...

22. I bet these same people dismiss Climate Change and the problem it is causing

which I guess can be described as "hell on earth" in some ways.

So far, 1 good guy with a few guns is managing to keep the demonic horde at bay.

Bodycam footage from the front line:
