I wonder if any one at CERN* appreciates the irony. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is allegedly mankind’s greatest achievement, yet a weasel1 (out of all possible creatures!) shuts it down.2 That monstrous, multi-billion dollar, man-made machine—generating blasts of (hey, let’s-see-what-might-happen!) energy—succumbed to the teeth of a small Mustela.

Could this event carry a message? Could it foreshadow:

▪ that Mother Nature intends to triumph over the hubris of CERN’s “scientists” and technicians?
▪ that something like the sly, stealthy, aggressive, voracious weasel—a symbol3 like unto CERN itself— will bring the demise of CERN?
▪ that CERN’s psychopathic power plays will eventually fry it too?
▪ that “the best-laid plans of mice and [egotistic] men [will go] awry” because “pride goeth before the fall”?4
▪ that “a house divided against itself cannot stand”?5

(PS: This, of course, is based on the assumption that the weasel was real and not a fabrication to deceive. Nonetheless, in the power and economy of God, even CERN may find itself, in the end, the butt of its own machinations.)

3. From Dictionary of Symbolic & Mythological Animals by J. C. Cooper ~ “Weasel: Almost universally associated with evil, the weasel was often feared. … ¶ The weasel is the only animal other than the cock that can kill the Basilisk,[*] who is afraid of it. ¶ The Bestiaries say it is an example of dissimulation, hearing God’s word but being bound by the love of earthly things” [p. 259].
*“Basilisk/Cockatrice: The Basilisk or Cockatrice is an old name often applied to the Serpent … It is a symbol of evil and treachery. … It is a creature of extreme malignity, feared by all. It can kill by the smell of its breath, by a glance from its eye or the touch of its tail, and its hiss burns people up; it also produces hydrophobia and sends people mad. … It can only be killed by a weasel (it is suggested that this may refer to the mongoose) or by a cock, or by seeing its reflection on looking through crystal” [Ibid. pp. 13-14].
So here we have two symbols of evil. Do they symbolically foreshadow that “the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; and it is [mostly] by the wicked that the wicked are punished;” (Book of Mormon | Mormon 4:5)?
PS: I insert “mostly” because God sometimes uses His righteous servants to measure out justice as in Old Testament Ezekiel 9 and elsewhere. As well, not all who might appear to be “punished” are wicked. Many innocent and good people have been allowed to suffer at the hands of the wicked. Here is one instance: “8 And they brought their wives and children together, and whosoever believed or had been taught to believe in the word of God they caused that they should be cast into the fire; and they also brought forth their records which contained the holy scriptures, and cast them into the fire also, that they might be burned and destroyed by fire. 9 And it came to pass that they took Alma and Amulek, and carried them forth to the place of martyrdom, that they might witness the destruction of those who were consumed by fire. 10 And when Amulek saw the pains of the women and children who were consuming in the fire, he also was pained; and he said unto Alma: How can we witness this awful scene? Therefore let us stretch forth our hands, and exercise the power of God which is in us, and save them from the flames. 11 But Alma said unto him: The Spirit constraineth me that I must not stretch forth mine hand; for behold the Lord receiveth them up unto himself, in glory; and he doth suffer that they may do this thing, or that the people may do this thing unto them, according to the hardness of their hearts, that the judgments which he shall exercise upon them in his wrath may be just; and the blood of the innocent shall stand as a witness against them, yea, and cry mightily against them at the last day.”
4. Old Testament | Proverbs 16:18 ~ Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Old Testament | Isaiah 13:11 ~ And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
5. New Testament | Matthew 12:25;~ And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself [evil fighting evil?] is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself [anarchy?] shall not stand: & Mark 3:26 ~ And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. (See also: Mark 3:24-25; Luke 11:17-18)
~ Part of what will defeat Satan, his hosts, and their human accomplices is that master Satan operates in a worst, worst case scenario of emotional dysregulation. With him, how he feels always trumps principles. He’ll do whatever it takes to get his way. He has no loyalties except to his agenda of destroying God’s plan and of imposing his own. He is the epitome of psychopathic. As a “selfie” he often lacks insight into the self-defeating chaos he inspires that will in the end divide his house into ten-thousand contentious fragments and eventual complete dissolution.
Book of Mormon | Alma 30:60 ~ And thus we see the end of him who perverteth the ways of the Lord; and thus we see that the devil will not support his children at the last day, but doth speedily drag them down to hell.
