Fact Check (a found poem)

Are not opening a portal to hell.

Restarted their accelerator-
The world’s most powerful accelerator-
To learn more about the origins of the universe.

Social media suggest a different purpose:
That scientists are using the machine to open a doorway
For demons,
Wicked spirits,
High Evil Principalities.

The claim is baseless.
Scientists are engaged in scientific-related activities.

Experts use the collider to study
Unexplored energies,
Microscopic particles,
The creation of the universe,
Dark matter.

Scientists are engaged in scientific-related activities.
The collider cannot open up portals to other dimensions.

Found poem from “ Fact check: Scientists at CERN are not opening a ‘portal to hell’,” USA Today, July 26, 2022.
