Is your blogster alone in thinking that there are some contraditions in the reactions of some scientists to the suggestion that the LHC might create a black hole which will destroy the world.

On the one hand we get a lot of this:
Prof. Jordan Nash: “To create a giant black hole would take a star much bigger than the sun to collapse. We are not doing anything that doesn’t occur in nature every day, and in our own atmosphere.

and at the same time, we also get a lot of:
scientists want to simulate the conditions of the Big Bang – the point at which our universe was thought to be created
and
In the $10 billion project β€” the most extensive physics experiment in history β€” the Large Hadron Collider will come ever closer to re-enacting the “big bang,” the theory that a colossal explosion created the cosmos.

Well – which is it?
