I wouldn't really call a letter describing Hitlers assassinion a "Doomsday Letter", "Doomsday scenario" or a "disaster"

I would not really call the nuclear bomb an abuse of technology... I will however condemn the use of such device on fellow human beings! If we get invaded by aliens on the other hand I would be happy to have nuclear capability.

The third secret of the Fatima is that the Pope would one day need to apologise for the church's lack of action over child abuse perpetrated by some of its priests.

"Not for a single moment did I imagine that this solemn and awful duty would one day fall to me." Well you imagined it long enough to get a speech drafted...

#2 Let me get this right! You are fine with having nuclear capabilities in case we get invaded by Aliens? Let me guess have you got an X box? Is your real name Rodney >:)

#4 I actually have a gaming PC, I'm a 27 year old IT guy. And I am also smart enough to know we can't possibly be the only intelligent civilization in the universe. So yeah, glad we have nukes, I just hate that we use them on our own kind.

#5 It seems if someone invents something awesome, It is the army the first one to use it. Imagine if someone invents a 'zero gravity' module. Would it be used for the people of the world and cheap transport immediatly ?, or would it be stolen by the military, and kept a secret for about 50 years..

#2 Of course it is an abuse. Just like steel should have been used for tools instead of swords.
WMD's are a desperate measure made explicitly because people wanted to reign supreme.
Do you think a species capable of interstellar travel would come unprepared for nuclear weapons? An attack on them would be like firing arrows at battle tanks.
