The Atomic age is 70 years old today.

Postby Tarkus » Thu Aug 06, 2015 11:49 am

On this day, at 8:15 in the morning, 'Enola Gay', a B-29 Superfortress commanded by Colonel Paul Tibbets, accompanied by an escort B-29 called 'Necessary Evil', flew over the city of Hiroshima in Japan, and dropped 'Little Boy', the first nuclear weapon to ever be used in anger. Just a split-second later, the lives of 140,000 men, woman and children were instantaneously snuffed out, with thousands more to follow over the years to come from sicknesses caused by the radiation of the blast. Three days later, another B-29 called 'Bock's Car', commanded by Major Charles W. Sweeney, escorted by the B-29's 'The Great Artiste' and 'The Big Stink', dropped 'Fat Man', the second, and so far last, nuclear weapon to be used in anger on the Japanese city of Nagasaki, killing 35,000 and wounding 60,000 more.

The nuclear age had begun, and since the atomic genie had been let out of the bottle, the shadow of nuclear destruction has haunted us ever since. What thoughts do the good people of QOL have on this, be it the justification of the missions, the thoughts of nuclear war, the arms race and so on? Discuss.

It is too abstract a fear that I can comprehend. I am probably naive in thinking that nuclear weapons will never ever be used again. However, they are certainly used in negotiations... see Iran. But the actual use of them...Maybe it's hope, maybe it's because I never witnessed it.
It is astounding what mankind can come up with... The power to create something that can release so much energy in such a small amount of time. If only these brilliant minds could have spent their time developing something less... nasty.

My understanding from what I remember of the interview from the man who developed nuclear energy was that it was not created to blow people into oblivion and that he was horrified when he found out the news. I believe the men flying the planes were also horrified but following orders. That's all I know for sure.

it will be man's downfall, and the sooner the better

humans are the biggest cancer on earth. we should all be killed, but the illuminati are working on that with their agenda 21 program 8-) see these white lines in the sky? that's planes spreading toxic fumes across the nations 8-)

and the gulf of mexico oil spill was also their work, ensuring toxics are put in the foodchain for generations to come.

it's all predicted in the illuminati cardgame from the '90s. some examples:

Never mind that that game was meant to be a parody of conspiracy theories, I guess....(I'm sure that's all part of the conspiracy, right?)

But yeah, if you make vague, undated 'predictions' of disasters, some of them WILL eventually come true! (one thing that's kept interest in Nostradamus going all these years)
