I am here,
yet most people don't care,

I kill people,
if you are not careful.

I can be created,
but it's rather useless.

If you can see me,
It's because of Him.

What am I?

Hint:

Him does not refer to a scientist or God

Hint 2:

The first 3 clues directly describe the answer. The last clue describes the answer, but not in the same way as the previous clues.

Hint 3:

"Him" is a Mexican.

I think It could be

Gravity

I am here, yet most people don't care,

Gravity is everywhere, but most people don't actually think about it

I kill people, if you are not careful.

you can fall off a cliff or something can fall onto you

I can be created, but it's rather useless.

Gravity can be created (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_gravity)

If you can see me, It's because of Him.

The movie "Gravity" was written by Alfonso Cuarón, a Mexican.

Energy?

I am here, yet most people don't care,

Many people waste their energy.

I kill people, if you are not careful.

Energy can be used for all sorts of things, including killing people.

I cannot be created, nor can I be destroyed.

The law of conservation of energy.

If you can see me, It's because of Him.

$E=mc^2$. Either "see"$=c$ or "see" as in light ($c$ is the speed of light). This is due to Einstein, often held up as a model of brilliance.

Is it:

Sunlight?

I am here,
yet most people don't care,

Yea it's warm and, free..

I kill people,
if you are not careful.

Sunburn N degree

I can be created,
but it's rather useless.

Not too sure, "Sunlight" can be created by mimic the same fusions from sun?

If you can see me,
It's because of Him.

HIM as Heliocentric Information Map?

What am I?

Sunlight?

My guess is

ATOM

What am I? I am here

I am here, yet most people don't care,

Coz its everywhere

I kill people, if you are not careful.

If it belongs to an radioactive element

I can be created, but it's rather useless.

Yes

If you can see me, It's because of Him.

LIGHT

What am I?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope. I wouldn't say electricity is useless. $\endgroup$ – Eli May 11 '15 at 0:29
  • $\begingroup$ Not atom, though your answer fits most of the clues. $\endgroup$ – Eli May 11 '15 at 1:19

Is it...

Antimatter?

I am here,

Antimatter has been proved to exist

yet most people don't care,

It is not very significant at the time

I kill people, if you are not careful.

Upon contact with matter, antimatter will instantly annihilate itself and whatever matter it touched.

I can be created,

Scientists have been able to create and study antimatter.

but it's rather useless.

Antimatter does have practical applications. However, considering the properties of antiparticles and our current technology, it is nearly impossible to put antimatter to use.

If you can see me, It's because of Him.

Let's say that "see" refers to the pronouncement of $c$, the speed of light constant in the equation $E=mc^2$. Antimatter was predicted to exist using the expanded form of $E=mc^2$, which is $E^2=m^2c^4$. And of course, as we all know, $E=mc^2$ was discovered by Albert Einstein ("Him").

  • $\begingroup$ The last point violates the hint. $\endgroup$ – user12205 May 11 '15 at 15:11
  • $\begingroup$ As ace said, last point doesn't match. I'm not looking for something that deep. It's a general knowledge question. $\endgroup$ – Eli May 11 '15 at 16:09

Ok, newish here, so I'll take a long shot stab at this :)

Are you bacteria/germs ?

I am here, yet most people don't care,

most people carry on without worrying to much about bacteria. Sure, we wash our hands and such, but mostly we "don't care".

I kill people, if you are not careful.

some bacteria can lead to sickness/death if you're not careful can think of some extreme situations, such as during operations, or spreading of a cold/flu

I can be created, but it's rather useless.

we can create bacteria and diseases: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/329/5987/52.abstract (not convinced of the useless part though :( )

If you can see me, It's because of Him.

if you can see something that smaller, it's likely via the aid of a Microscope or such. (still not 100% what "Him" is referring, but if we call the Microscope "Him" ... :)

  • $\begingroup$ Him actually refers to a living person. $\endgroup$ – Eli May 11 '15 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ is the person still alive? $\endgroup$ – Wayne_Yux May 12 '15 at 13:27
