I absolutely agree with you, Chris. Physicists have no reason to assume energies beyond those of cosmic rays are safe. Fortunately, I don't think we're going to surpass nature in our lifetime.

I believe my first forum post also dealt with that issue.

Those, who understand Russian, can hear me at BBC (Russian Service).

there is my dispute with Nurgaliev.
It’s pity, but the second part of my talk was not included in the radio-program.

Since we haven't heard from Ivan in almost 6 months, what do you think has happened to him?

I think he is enjoying his life and has realised there is nothing to worry about :D

Or else the guys from the booby hatch caught him and he is now resting comfortable in a padded cell without any connectivity to the internet.

We could think that :crazy: or maybe just maybe he did disappear into his own magnetic hole :dance:

This article made me think of Ivan, as he made some serious predictions:

Prophecy Fail
What happens to a doomsday cult when the world doesn't end?

link: http://www.slate.com/id/2295099/
For those not waiting for the world to end in a storm of fire and light it is easy to write off the believers as deluded, but Festinger was not so wide of the mark when he suggested that we adapt to even the most unlikely of contradictions using nothing more than our methods of everyday rationalization. The faithful could just as easily be those who stubbornly stand by disgraced politicians, failed ideologies, dishonest friends, or cheating spouses, even when reality highlights the clearest of inconsistencies. Armageddon is unlikely to arrive this weekend, but most of us have lived through it many times before.

Why don't you take a trip to beautiful Ukraine and go to Ivan's hut to figure that one out. I bet he'll be delighted to see you.

Well I guess my prayer that Ivan was locked up in a padded cell has not been answered after all. So sad that we have to put up with his drivel once more.
