Friday Funny: Human Sacrifice to Shiva The Destroyer at CERN Facility

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

The true purpose of the Swiss CERN high energy physics facility has been revealed, by an apparent attempt by staff to summon Shiva The Destroyer through ritual human sacrifice.

WARNING: Contains rude language

CERN management have rejected accusations they are a centre of an evil cult, with a boring claim that the video is just an unauthorised staff prank.

“Cern welcomes every year thousands of scientific users from all over the world and sometimes some of them let their humour go too far. This is what happened on this occasion,” said a statement emailed to AFP.

What do you think? Is CERN a centre of Satanic ritual and dark purpose? Or are they just a bunch of well paid government scientists with overactive imaginations, and way too much time on their hands?

If your business is attempting to explore other dimensions, perhaps it pays to stay on good terms with as many supernatural entities as possible.

I really oppose terms like God particle. It does not make any sense and might disturb people who are religional.
Also remember that ToE, “Theory of Everything” is NOT a theory of everything. And charm quarks have nothing to do with charm or milk products.

Hugs — In a metaphorical world, riding on a language such as English where every other word has drifted 6 ways from its original meaning, it is well to have thoughtful commenters like you reminding us when a spade is actually not a spade. You seem to have coined religional (I can’t find it in my desktop OED), though I like the word so much I would like to ask your permission to use it.
I though the God particle was a boson involved with the origin of mass, not with the origin of matter. I have always found a great deal of Godliness missing from that particle, though I would think the explanation of mass would be way up there in importance on any list of explanations.

If someone says, “I have a sense of humor, but that’s not funny,” he doesn’t.
In the end, all humor is based on pain or Murphy’s Law (which is itself painful). It is mankind’s way of coping.

This is similar to the Gotthard Tunnel inauguration ceremony, nearby CERN.
There are many videos on this event – I will put a link to a longer one so anyone can see the whole thing, in context.Eventually, a ram-horned figure comes out and plays lustily with a female, amongst other quite unique scenes.

21:25: wtheck? 29:20 – here come the ram horns!

1:25 – there he is the devil himself! 12:13 – did he just hump her? yep, he did. 18:00 to 18:30 – wtheck?
I am a Christian. I understand that not everybody is. I understand that many scientists believe that “science” has done away with our need to believe in the supernatural.
At the same time, the predictions of our Book are getting played out pretty accurately.
The hallmark of science is prediction. It is not that big of a deal to apply an explanation after the fact and claim your explanation is true. However, making a claim then proving it with an observation is very powerful proof.
The Bible uses this same principle – tested, fulfilled predictions – to prove that there is a God, and that He communicates with us, and that He cares about us.
Isaiah 5:20 says “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.” In this day and age, people like me who believe in God get identified as brain-dead dumb, or malevolent, while our culture honors and supports more and more behavior every day that used to be bad. We find excuses for people rioting, and blame the good people of the world. Etc.
When humans try to make up a supernatural or cosmological celebration, it just ends up looking Satanic. Gosh, I wonder why.

You do have to remember you’re not dealing with normal people here, you’re watching artistes and those whackers don’t inhabit the real world as you and I do.
1:25 – there he is the devil himself!
The artistes will no doubt give you a one hour dissertation on how the goat is symbolic of the mountains which the tunnel conquers and the farming traditions of the region. Even though a tunnel has nothing to do with the goat herding that Swissmen in strange clothes used to do before they discovered money laund, erm, banking.
12:13 – did he just hump her? yep, he did
The artistes will continue to lecture about it being a metaphor for the tunnel being a seed that gives birth to a new era of fertile trade in the mountains or some other gobbledegook…
18:00 to 18:30 – wtheck?
I think here the absinthe has finally started to kick in, the green fairy is in plain sight and the artistes are immersing themselves in the moment, adlibbing or some other drivel. Which would be a pompous way of admitting that they’re playing with themselves.

Eric: I personally find some aspects of current high energy physics difficult to accept (10 dimensions and dark energy, for example). And I dislike that fact that untestable hypotheses (string theory) are sometimes presented without reminding the audience that “science” requires testing such theories – if it is to be distinguished from religion and philosophy. One might call them all conjectures. Some new physics has very misleading names: Dark matter can be translated into mass that produces a gravitational field, but doesn’t produce stars as bright as we would expect from ordinary matter. Experiments designed to test the hypothesis that the missing mass is composed of new particles haven’t discovered any yet.
However, many earlier scientists were unable to adjust to quantum mechanics, relativity and more recently chaos. Arthur Eddington wrote around that time: “Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.”

Frank: my “religion” is tested as science is. This is different from all of the other “religions.”
Science depends on a statement of how the world works, then an observable, disprovable test that indicates the accuracy of the view of the world.
Predictions must be made a priori, not after the fact (as with “evolution” theory, or the “scientific” view of the universe emerging from nothing).
A failed prediction invalidates the claim of truth.
When predictions are fulfilled, you tentatively hold on to the theory.
With enough various fulfilled predictions, you might eventually progress to labeling a hypothesis as “truth.”
This is what we have with Judeo-Christianity. You can go explore our view that many predictions, prophecies, have been fulfilled…
Old Testament:
All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads.
“He trusts in the Lord,” they say, “let the Lord rescue him.
Let him deliver him, since he delights in him.”
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
New Testament:
“The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.”
–Two-fer. Frank? Do you see this as true? Or not? We have the poor, despite our long-term efforts to abolish poverty. Also, Jesus is not with us anymore.
“I tell you the truth, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.” –Demonstrably true; the Bible is the most-read book evar anywhere. This story has been read uncountable times.
A handy reference to be reviewing –
The only predictions that have not been fulfilled are those of Revelation.

“Dark matter can be translated into mass that produces a gravitational field, but doesn’t produce stars as bright as we would expect from ordinary matter.”
It’s more than that. It is exotic matter that not only does not emit electromagnetic radiation, but concomitantly does not absorb it, either and, in fact, does not interact with electromagnetic radiation at all.
It’s very epicyclic. Once upon a time, researchers saw a discrepancy with their models of circular orbits, and decided that the orbits must have epicycles on top of them to fit the math of the current reigning theory. Today, they fill the gaps with dark matter instead of epicycles.

Johann: It is very easy to got holt of Marco Polo’s account of his travels. As he and his companions traveled to China and across Asia including India, they mention the religious composition of the various locales.
This is circa 1200 AD. Christianity is noted throughout the Asia they traveled.
It is believed that “Doubting” Thomas headed for India post-Acts. And, this accounts for the “Nasrani” Christians in India.
I mentored a woman from India who was a Nasrani, from early childhood. She eventually made it to the States. To pay the bills, she got a job at a Jewish school. So, she was able to observe Judaism in practice. She knew her Nasrani practices were different from other Christian styles of worship, but just attributed it to being from India.
When she observed Judaism, she was stunned to see how it was like her Nasrani practices – Thomas took his Jewish practices to India.
Marxists paint “Christianity” as “Western” as yet another strategy for discouraging us from favoring our Cultural Hegemony. “Western” for the Marxists is synonymous with “oppression,” “imperialism,” “colonization,” etc.

The definition of darkness as the absence of light has only been questioned in the last 100 years, yet the answer has always been provided by Genesis 1. This is what happens when the Godless use science as a religion and encounter a truth.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
They Godless got a ways to go, now that they are just discovering everything was CREATED outta that stuff called darkness.
