The Large Hadron Collider represents a triumph of science. This video will explain what the collider is hoping to accomplish:
This one explains how it works:

The Large Hadron Collider is the “largest and most complex scientific experiment” ever built. Perhaps $10 billion has been spent on its construction. It involves five different accelerators linked in a chain, each bigger than the last, culminating in the main LHC ring which lives in an immense underground tunnel that is 17 miles in circumference. The ring consists of two separate pipes held at near absolute vacuum, each containing protons that are accelerated to 99.999999% the speed of light. More than a thousand superconducting magnets held near absolute zero (1.9 degrees K, the temperature of liquid helium) keep the protons following the circular path.
Once accelerated to full speed, the protons then collide in one of four massive instruments that can detect and measure the debris that comes off the collision. At the moment of collision, a pair of protons has a combined energy of 14 trillion electron volts.
Imagine the amount of science and engineering that went into the creation of a facility like this. Imagine the amount of time spent designing, checking and constructing its millions of parts. Imagine the triumph of having all of it work exactly as expected.
Now the first question: As a Christian, do you believe that The Large Hadron Collider actually exists? You probably do. If you were to seriously doubt its existence, you could actually travel to CERN and see for yourself.
If you do believe in the LHC, here is something to consider. The same kind of scientists and the same scientific process that built the Large Hadron Collider are also working on evolution. Except that there are far more scientists working on evolution, because evolution encompasses so many different disciplines. These scientists work on learning about evolution with the same rigor and determination that went into the LHC. They have amassed a gigantic amount of evidence from many different specialties.
The second question: Why do you believe in the LHC, but you deny the whole idea of the evolution of species? What prevents you from seeing that science is science? Why would you believe that the scientists working on the LHC are so competent and inspired, while those working on evolution are blundering imbeciles bent on a satanic mission? Why are you so afraid of reality that you would take a position like denying the fact of evolution, proven out in thousands of different ways over the span of decades by a truly astonishing amount of evidence? Why won’t you look at the actual evidence so that you can see for yourself that it is real and true, just like the LHC?
Or let’s say that you are an “enlightened Christian”. You believe in evolution AND Christianity. Why can’t you accept the reality that the creation myth in the Bible is just a myth? And so is Noah’s flood. And by simple extrapolation, Jesus and his whole “eternal life” silliness are myths as well, as demonstrated in these two videos:
Everything about Christianity is nothing but mythology. Why do you hold a religion full of meaningless mythology so dear?
Simply think about it for a bit. Either way, your belief in Christianity is meaningless because Christianity is nothing but mythology. The mythology surrounding God and Jesus is no different from the mythology surrounding Zeus or Ra. (If you disagree with this statement, please take a moment to leave a comment and explain your logic, as many people would be very interested in hearing what you have to say.)
On the other hand, if you are a Christian and you are beginning to understand that worshipping a mythological tri-God is a waste of your time, this web site can help lead you down the path of enlightenment:
