The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) & Revelation 9:1-11

Much has been made of CERN's 17-mile long Large Hadron Collider, which has been spun up again this year at unprecedented energy levels, in regards to Revelation 9.  I don't want to jump on the bandwagon blindly as some have, but I also don't want to overlook the potential significance.

Playing God with the fundamental nature of the universe might not be the best idea.  Here is Revelation 9:1-11:

"And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit. He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.

In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, their hair like women's hair, and their teeth like lions' teeth; they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon."

If in fact the LHC has something to do with the fifth trumpet judgment and the opening of "the abyss" (Tartarus in 2 Peter 2:4)--it should be noted that there may already be a connection:

A portion of the LHC's ring goes right through the French town of Saint-Genis-Pouilly.  "Pouilly" is French for the Latin "Appolliacum".  The Latin word is obvious enough.  It is a translation of the Greek Apollo/Apollyon.  In fact, before the town had its French name it was just plainly called "Appolliacum" or "Polliacum" (again--Latin for Apollo/Apollyon).  Pretty striking connection.
