One of the most respected centers for scientific studies, CERN, is under investigation for a mock occult ritual, which ends in the sacrificial “stabbing” of a woman. Also just pretend. The Geneva research center is most famous for housing the Large Hadron Collider, which searches for “the god particle”.
The video is shot from the perspective of someone watching from an upstairs window of the famous campus. Gathered around a statue of the Hindu god Shiva, it shows researchers dressed in hooded black cloaks positioned around the courtyard. When the scene reaches the moment the hooded figures appear to stab their sacrificial woman, the person filming is heard cursing “F*ck! F*ck!” and appears to run away from the window.
“These scenes were filmed on our premises but without official permission or knowledge,” a Cern spokeswoman told Agence France-Presse in an email.
“Cern does not condone this type of spoof, which can give rise to misunderstandings about the scientific nature of our work.” Adding it was just the researcher’s sense of “humor gone too far”.
