So of all the things scientists could be doing, such as creating an emission free, higly efficient energy creation method or a type of pollution free jet engine they decide to create big bangs which could destroy the Earth.

Hmm..........

10 to the negative 40th power is one of the smallest chances of error any experiment could have. Dont You relize the positives this experiment could give us, it could open up a whole new universe for us literaly. The info we could obtain could be more then anything we have ever encountered. But the risk is loosing the earth and im sure the destruction is not limited to our planet or the solar system or galaxy... but look at the gains!!!!

the chances of this destruction of earth is so slim man. and if it did happen i think it would be a fraction of a second so we wouldnt even feel death we wouldnt even know it happened! ¿but if that .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 chance does not happen then we gain a new way of looking at the universe maybe space travel can become a reality and no longer a dream for me and you.

Unfortunately not.

I mean its not like there's much we can do if the one in 'one to the 40th power' chance of the world exploding actually happens is there. Maybe we could put everyone who wants to do this on, say Mars, and then let them carry on to their hearts content?

Stuff like this gets to me, you may have noticed.

Well, even if that 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ,000 chance does happen Tan, it'll be too sudden for you to notice ;)

These black holes would be invisibly small and so unstable that they would explode in a burst of particles within around a billion-billion-billionth of a second.

Rightfully so.
Glad to hear it.
There's a big problem when it doesn't.

And whatever twist / rational we want to put on the odds is entirely beside the point. IE: Whether you and I FEEL it. That equation = Selfish to the 3xbillionth degree.

i was just trying to say.. If we do not take this opportunity to test this it would be a insult to science and our future. Risk are almost involved with everything! but look at the gains... I think their was a ST episode were kirk and his crew find 3 aleins on a planet that were pure energy but they were almost omniscient and could control stuff with there mind. They asked to use 3 bodies to build androids and mccoy was scared that it might destroy the 3 bodys or lead to even more destruction. But kirk said sometimes u have to be willing to make sacrifices in order to gain.

Sorry i applied star trek to this topic but i think, it also proves how star trek is something bigger then people traveling around the universe. Their are bigger ideas that apply to our everyday life

You don't have to appologize for your perspective. Nor for using ST as an example. That is afterall why we are all here.
Another eg is "The Omega Directive". It is the perfect example because it personifies, almost to the T, all that is going on here and the 2 major viewpts on it. However we have mankind evolved in ST to pt of including morality and risks to enforce such a directive.
I can dig up the precise dialogue but suffice to say we have a borg/mega scientific mind vs. a directive set by Starfleet in a situation not too disimilar to this.

I wonder if AE would have done what he did after the fact. In fact, it is said he wrestled with this demon to the day he died. Which in fact the eps "Jetrel" is another direct play on. And in that instance we're talkin a degree of destruction far less than the entire planet.

The problem when the price being asked is the entire planet, shouldn't the scientists really get the approval of the entire Human Race?
