Reports are still coming in, but so far it seems that the Earth has not been destroyed by the LHC. We don’t have enough information yet, but it seems to still be here.

It is potentially arguable though, that we don’t have any transitional Earths between yesterday and today, and so the theory of the Earth still existing remains just that. It seems equally likely that the Earth was destroyed yesterday, but then instantly recreated by God an intelligent external agent this morning in the exact state that it would be had the Earth not been destroyed.
