    Hey, I don't disagree with you on that. I've stated repeatedly that everyone has them, or no one has them, with the preference that no one has them.

    Nobody has used them since 1945 and that was us. Actually, nobody on the planet but us has ever used them. Why are we somehow more trustworthy than anyone else?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    But since that will never happen, the other alternative is better than a fantasy. It's like saying that pollution would go away if nobody had cars. That's a ridiculous proposition though.

    Who exactly can be trusted and who can't? And who decides such lists?
    I have zero doubt that Japan, Germany, and the Soviet Union would have during WW2 had they been able to. The fact that the US was the first, and thus so far only, is more a matter of timing than anything else.

    Waitaminute! Pollution could go away (or at least be significantly reduced) with the use of renewables. And it's not a fantasy. But you can't expect to be taken seriously if your in possession of contraband that you wish to deny others.

    Yes, in your ****ed up twisted mind in which any kind of atrocity can be justified, I'm sure.

    the 1945 use was essential to the defeat of imperialist tyranny. In the 70 years since then our restraint has been admirable.
