Pope Francis Warns Large Hadron Collider Could ‘Open Gates of Hell’


Pope Francis pleaded the scientific community to halt operations on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) this morning in an official Vatican release as scientists at the Large Hadron Collider next week are hoping to experiment with a possible connection with a parallel universe outside of our own.

The Pope’s criticism comes days after scientists at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, revealed this week plans to fire up the LHC ‘atom smasher’ to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect – or even create – miniature black holes and possibly “create an opening in the space-time fabric”.

Another skeptic of the project is none other than respected physicist Stephen Hawking who has recently warned the end of the world could be sparked by the elusive ‘God particle’.


Pope Francis warned the scientific community of “testing God’s limits” after the announcement of the reopening of the LHC, which has been undergoing massive repairs and been shut down for the past two years

The Pope appeared visibly distraught as he addressed the crowd of tens of thousands of followers present at St-Peter’s square for the occasion for one of his longest speeches to date.

“My fellow Christians, we are living in desperate times,” he told the crowd.

“Science is about to test the limits of God and his creation. God has created boundaries between the world of the living and the world of the dead. Are these scientists about to unleash upon us the Gates of Hell?” he asked his followers, visibly shaken.

“Are these the days of darkness spoken of in the Bible? Are the hordes of demons lurking in the fiery pits of Hell about to be thrust upon the world? These are questions we must ponder before allowing scientists to proceed to such experiments” he concluded.

Last October, over 400 top physicists signed a petition warning that the Higgs potential might become unstable at energies above 100bn giga-electron-volts (GeV) and asking governments to keep experiments under these levels.

  1. There is an ancient ruin of a temple to Apollo within the circle of CERN…this may have been an historic connection to Hell and it’s minions.

    God created us. Anything and everything we do is directly or indirectly a work of God. We would not even have the physical capabilities to create or use the LHC if God did not intend it. That’s why we should use the LHC to its full capacity, because God would not give us the power to do so if it would destroy us.

  3. Centuries have past since the heresy trial of Galileo Galilei. I surprised that in this day and age, the Pope would attempt to make superstitious pronouncements on physics experiments. High Energy gamma radiation from outer space provides an existence theorem proof that the energies of colliding protons at the LHC cannot destroy the fabric of space and time (separating us, according to the Pope, from the denizens of Hell).

  4. Wow. What the scientists at Cern are doing is SO far from what is being presented here by a puppet. It will take 2+ months before they even start particle smashing. I can only hope that people are not as ignorant today to accept such a ridiculous premise as the one this outdated figurehead is spewing.

  5. The dead shall walk the Earth.

    • The meak will inherit the earth get it right tead the book the dead already walk the earth texting on the phone and beleiving google as gospel
