Nuclear Weapons are a horrible device of mass destruction. They represent the same evilness in warfare as does a bullet, except one can instantaneously do the job of over 500,000 bullets, and more. However the superb physics and dedication that went to building the first atomic bomb during World War II was and still is unprecedented. My fascination with atomic bombs comes from the fact of liberating so much power from such small amount of material. In no way do I find pleasure in the destruction of others lives and property - Nuclear warfare is an abomination to mankind and one of the most intense displays of disrespect to God and his creations. It is our duty as humans being lent the energy of the universe to utililze our findings to the betterment of society. I am an avid fan of nuclear power, I believe that we should downgrade the purity of all our weapons grade Plutonium-239 and use it as nuclear full. I am sick of ignorance and politics posioning the future of nuclear and other clean energies. I have a lack of faith in people, thus conventional nuclear reactors should be done away with, while pushing forward into safer nuclear enrgies (see my personal projects page for my dablings in clean energy techniques).

I don't know how man will fight World War III, but I do know how they will fight World War IV : with sticks and stones."

    We have too many men of science, too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount . . . . The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.
