Right, because everything written in the Bible was written by God's hand itself. The Bible is infallible. We should use the Bible as our means of understanding everything, including but not limited to government, treatment of marginalized groups, justice systems, war, etc. It's not like the Bible is just a hodgepodge of stories written by people who thought they understood what God was saying to them. No. Not it at all. And Bible scholars have "traced the tribes"? Well, I feel much reassured. It looks like God gave us all we need right there in that book.

Man, you are so wrong. The US has not abandoned trying to create nuclear fusion via lasers as you claim. In fact, they just built a new facility to do just that. EU has done the same. Russia plans to do the same.
It is about energy production by nuclear energy. Such a process will include tritium, which is an abundant isotope of hydrogen, will create mass amounts of energy, and produce no waste product. This is the future of fuel production. Why the hell would leading technological countries abandon their competition to research this process that will revolutionize our very lives, so they could build weapons instead?
Why would any country in modern times need to use these important scientific resources to develop more weapons of mass destruction? We still live in a MAD world, but Russia, US, EU isn't going to prioritize production of such weapons when they already have the capabilities that such weapons promise.
And honestly, if there is one thing to know about real modern geopolitics, it is that military power has fallen behind the accumulation of resources. What bloody good is it for the US to have such a massive military, when it is a fuel-producing deficit country that requires the use of its military to secure more fuel for itself? It would be in the US's best interest to develop energy technology that can be solely produced within the US without reliance on foreign assets.edit on 14-2-2012 by Dimitri Dzengalshlevi because: (no reason given)
