As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) approaches its first data taking, the future of fundamental research is being threatened by an extraordinary campaign of lies and misinformation, triggered by claims that the LHC could create new particles or forms of matter capable of destroying life on Earth. In this presentation, we review the overwhelming scientific evidence that such claims have no basis of truth, and discuss the lessons that the scientific community should draw from this dispute.
