Atomic bomb is powered by the splitting of the uranium atom which causes a chain reaction splitting 2 more atoms etc. Hydrogen bomb is caused by the fusion of hydrogen atoms (joining 2 to become one), the pressure needed for Hydrogen atoms to fuse is generally created with an atomic bomb.

Hydrogen bomb is alot more powerfull then the atomic bomb, sucks to be under either if it goes off.

He said they were Testing some on an Island, and when the smoke cleared, there was nothing there. Just the trigger for one of those, is a nuke. He also added, that if one of these more powerful ones goes off, theres a risk of the air exploding in a chain reaction. :o
just so yoyu knoe, the reason that a hydrogen bomb is bigger than an atom bomb (What you kall a nuke, even tho a hydrogen bomb is a nuke) is because the air DOES DO a chain reacton.

someone earlier wrote: i know we are special. there's nothing else like us.
someone else wrote: i don't beleive in evolution
not entirely true...

evolution works like a tree...each branch has a series of branches connected to it. why would the branch we sit on be empty?

it didnt use to be this way. what sets us apart from other mammals? we walk on 2 legs. studies on fossils have shown that at vaguely the same time their were 2 or more mammals that walked on 2 legs. they had the skull capacity to hold a human sized brain and were probably sentient. they did not survive but they did exist, therefore we are not special, just another branch in the tree.

my opinion on war with iraq;
some alien from an Animorph book wrote: If you do not know of any other sentient lifeform then who do you fight?
human wrote: we fight each other.
we are all the same species. why do we want to blow each other up?

Why do we want to blow each other up? Because we are no different from wild animals when it comes to territory and necessaties.

Things we have in common with wild animals:

We defend our territory violently
We kill for reason other then food (cats do it all the time as an example)
We fight for a mate if supply is lower then demand
We kill each other for food if the supply is low.

Oil and other resources are just as important to us as food and shelter, so we fight over it.

The only major thing we fight over that seperates us over wild animals is religion

I'm not saying we haven't advanced, that would be foolery. I'm saying we didn't come from apes. What sets us apart? The fact that we have, not only intelligence, but wisdom and the ability to think on our own; the ability to tell right from wrong, a conscience; the ability to create beautiful structures and art and appreciate it; the ability to look on life and wonder about it; why we're here and what our purpose is; and the ability to love. Animals also lack this ability to be attracted for purposes of companionship and someone to understand them. Some may mate for life, but that is instinct. It is not an emotion, but a natural act. No other species has this. Why? Because we didn't come from them.

John, you have no idea what an animal feels. They are happy, they get depressed, when a family member dies they mourn, some mate for life and give all their attention to the mate (not just for reproduction). Whales communicate fairly well and are VERY intelligent. Dolphins have been trained to do work.

The major difference with us is that we have thumbs allowing us to create dwellings and write. If we one day can understand what the other animals are saying I bet we would understand that they are just like us, but not as intelligent because we build up our knowledge through books over generations while they have to learn things from the last generation if that.

Just because they dont sit around the food bowl and talk about last weeks lassy show doesnt mean that their lives are not emotionally filled like ours.

I don't believe in all EVO, I believe in parshle EVO. Yes, or like to ancient wolf/dog thing. Used to hunt fish on the banks, but after a "zillion" years it gained webed feet. It did, but not in a "zillion" years. NO JOKE

Well, I believe in the different slight species of the same species, like those birds that evolved in Africa so they could each fill a different niche`, and hence not fight over trees.

But, I'm sorry, believing that fish turned into dinosaurs, or that we spawned from apes, just sounds like a bunch of nonsense. Yes, I believe in creation by god. Anyway, what proof do they have other than skulls? Couldn't God have created very similar species, and then they went extinct?

Well there are 2 camps on evolution:

1. (The Show me the evidence crowd)Scientists who study skulls and bones of animals that slowly changed in billions of years to become different animals, or branch off into meat eaters and vegetarians etc.

2. (The I beleive what I am told from the church and the rest of the world dont exist crowd) People who believe a god made everything (even today each religion has their own version of the 1 true god). These people are the ones that dont believe in anything scientific that can be shown for evolution but believe 100% in something with absolutely no evidence to support it.

Generally thats the way I see it.

There is NO evidence for evolution. No one can prove it. It's just a theory with no real evidence.
