Herein lies the general logic and thoughts that bind together and often inform my actions.
Fire! Gunpowder!! Atomic Energy!!!
No surprises here. Even in Greek times fire was used to both feed one’s city and attack other cities. Technology and scientific advancement has almost always been used both to create and destroy. Along these lines, one can only guarantee a high probability of restraint to using technology for attack if amongst neighboring countries morals exist to keep aggression low. I believe that religion has a place in society for this purpose — to define a continually updating, but absolutely necessary, mold for moral human behavior.
