When you raise your child to believe in the end times, the devil, hell, and an all-seeing, all-knowing god... you'd better not act shocked when they buy into that crap hook line and sinker.

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Doomsday predictions surrounding the start-up of Europe's Large Hadron Collider -- a giant particle-smasher designed to explore the origins of the universe -- come as little surprise to physicists.
The world's largest particle-collider has yet to begin experiments, but its trial run on Wednesday was accompanied by worries that it might spawn black holes with enough gravitational pull to swallow up the Earth.
Well one person in particular took the doomsday predictions seriously.
Yahoo News AU A teenage girl in India has killed herself after fearing the Big Bang experiment in Switzerland may cause the world to end.
Local Indian authorities said the 16-year-old girl from Madhya Pradesh drank pesticide and was rushed to the hospital but died later.
Instead of providing their daughter with the tools she needed to think rationally for herself, to be able to reason and make logical decisions, they fill her with mysticism and fear so that the idea of the world POSSIBLY ending is so horrific that it merits suicide. The world MIGHT end, I better off myself and quickly.
