The human mind. there would be no weapons without the human mind. Every machine we've created has come from the same source.

Bingo, Neformore! The USSR's Tsara Bomb is the correct answer.

The most powerful weapon the USA ever made was the 3 stage MK-41 20 Megaton nuclear bomb. We made 500 of them.

The most disgusting weapon the USA ever contemplated was "Project Pluto" which was a nuclear powered ramjet cruise missile (called SLAM) that would fly around for weeks at a time, irradiating everthing in its path. (Slow death by radiation, sort of a flying Chernobyl meltdown.)

Most Psychopathic Weapon System Ever Designed

I started the above thread a while back on these items, with others contributing their thoughts. (Read at your own risk! Pretty disturbing in some places, at least to me.)

Edit: Karlhungis gets a star also.

TED NUGENT!! If we dropped him in the middle of Iraq he would use his famous guitar that blows the balls off a charging rhino at a hundred paces.

i think if you can find a way to turn off the internet of a country, then you find the most powerful perfect bloodless weapon. imagine all of N. Korea without their daily porn subscription? USA wins!

No, this is not correct. The TSAR is the most powerful conventional weapon, but Hydrogen bombs are more powerful by ORDERS of magnitude.

The first Hydrogen bomb obliterated an entire island!! It left a crater 6,240 feet in diameter, 164 feet deep.

It threw a fire ball 57,000 feet into the air; in 90 seconds. One minute later it was 108,000 feet high.

The cloud from the blast reached a diameter of 100 miles. With a stem 20 miles wide.

It killed animal life on an island 3 miles away.

There is NO conventional weapon that comes even close. Not even TSAR.

You should do some research on Hydrogen Bombs. They ARE the most powerful weapon even made by humans.

Umm... The "Tsar Bomba" was a Hydrogen bomb too. It remains the single most powerful Hydrogen bomb to ever be detonated.

We are both right here. We are talking about two different bombs. What you are talking about is the FOAB (Father of All Bombs), detonated last year by Russia. This appears to be the biggest conventional (non-nuclear) weapon ever made.

en.wikipedia.org...

The Tsara Bomb was a three stage hydrogen bomb build by the USSR and first detonated in 1961. It was absolutely huge! Here is a picture of that bomb.

en.wikipedia.org...

The Tsara Bomb was so disgustingly huge that it was reminiscent of something out of the movie Dr. Strangelove. (See that movie BTW -- it is great!)

Edit: Here is a link to the above movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. It ranks as my favorite movie of all time, even above the first Matrix movie. That's me.

I would say the most powerfull tool of destruction is the human mind without it not much else could have been created.

Sorry for being so basic but if you think about it it's the truth.

Take care.

I just wanted to say that anti-matter is a concept, and is not yet a realistic concept at that. We haven't even proven its existence and someday we may find that it is a physics wet dream rather than reality.

Easy,
A Martyr.
Can go anywhere, use anything, hunt, stalk, wait, change attack plan, gather intel, call in secondary attackers,.
Hell, one could be in your office or at your front door now - how would you know?
Sure the "kill" ratio may be low compared to other weapons but how do you stop a weapon with a human brain who WANTS to die?

Well if were to believe the hype surrounding 'Star Gates' then I guess these would be considered the most powerful wepon ever..... The ability to make a surgicaly precise hit on anything at any point and in time using any means possible via the 'Star Gate'

If they actualy are real then that's a very scarey concept indeeed....

Well your already dead by the first ton of TNT, so what's the point of the next few million tons ?

The most powerful weapon ever, on Earth is............. A man with a rifle.


It trumps everything else.

It trumps the Pen, because if the man holding the pen is missing critical parts, because of the man with a rifle, the pen is useless.


It trumps the a-bomb, because if the guy turning the key to launch is missing critical parts, because of the man with a rifle, the a-bomb is useless.


I was seriously considering Truth to be the ultimate weapon, but the man with a rifle trumps that too.

Compound interest is the greatest weapon of all history.
