The Bomb

Over 70 years ago the nuclear bomb altered our reality forever and in this film The Bomb we see it’s transformation from the theoretical, to the physical when it was first used August 6, 1945, it was on this day the public learned of a new type of weapon, a destroyer of worlds.

We witness the nuclear bomb’s humble beginnings from when in 1938 two German chemists accidentally discovered how to split the nucleus of a uranium atom. It was Einstein and his E=mc2 equation that predicted the amount of energy released from such an atom would be enormous.

Soon after physicists from all around the globe realised that this type of fission might allow for the creation of a bomb which would possess extraordinary power and that Nazi Germany might be on the verge of being able to create one. This fear that Hitler might get his hands on the ultimate weapon led the Americans into a race to create the bomb first.

In turn we saw the destruction of Hiroshima, the nuclear arms race, the hydrogen bomb, the Cuban Missile Crisis and some of the greatest fear and tension ever witnessed in world history.

    As far as war tech documentaries go, this doesn’t beat you over the head too much with obvious information, but sheds some insight on the livings conditions and society that grew around the Manhattan project, very interesting and definitely worth the watch, I admit im only about 30 minutes in and pretty enthralled.

    If you Google “911 Melted Granite” on the Internet you will see photographs of the aftermath below “The Twin Towers” of the September 11, 2001 events, and what you are looking at is Granite that is missing because it was “Vaporized” with a very high temperature of heat, and as the heat began to cool down the Granite transferred from a gas to a liquid, (just as you see when you boil water and let it cool) and then as “Liquid Granite” it cooled to form itself in a state of “Solid Granite” again; that is why you see circles just like when you cook pudding and it heats up to pop circles, and that is why the whole scene looks like it is the bottom of a riverbed of smooth flowing “Liquid Granite” that later cooled to a solid state of Granite; however, in truth it is the bottom of what use to be a level foundation of Granite for which “The Twin Towers” were built upon. The “Scientific Question” of course is, “Why does the bottom of ‘The Twin Towers’ in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 events resemble a ‘Nuclear Meltdown’ being that there is nothing in a Commercial Airlines, and there is nothing in Commercial Skyscrapers that can even get close to Vaporizing Granite, and/or Melting Granite; even if you combined a Commercial Airline crashing into a Commercial Skyscraper there is nothing in the combination to have the ‘Necessary Mathematics’ that could even get close to Vaporizing Granite, and/or Melting Granite; so, The United States Of America needs to explain how there is Vaporized Granite, and Melted Granite below what use to be ‘The Twin Towers?'”

    So far, The United States Of America continues to avoid “The Scientific Question” that stresses “SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE” of a possible “Nuclear Meltdown” of Vaporized Granite, and Melted Granite, and it is below what use to be “The Twin Towers” of The September 11, 2001 events, and “The Scientific Question” suggests that there was a possible use of “Nuclear Bombs” that were placed in and below The Twin Towers before The September 11, 2001 events. Is The United States Of America so “Uneducated” that the Citizens of The United States Of America do not realize that there is a “Scientific Question” about Vaporized Granite, and Melted Granite of The September 11, 2001 events that suggests “Nuclear Bombs” were used in and below The Twin Towers, and this is where the “Necessary Mathematics” came from, and it Vaporized the Granite, and Melted the Granite; thus, “A MELTDOWN!” As we approach the first quarter of the 21’st Century “The Scientific Question” still remains unanswered; and it brings up another question, “Are the Citizens of The United States Of America so ‘Uneducated’ that they do not realize that ‘A Truthful and Qualified Scientific Question’ is asking for an answer of what caused the Granite to vaporize, and what caused the Granite to melt under The Twin Towers of the September 11, 2001 events, or is it that the Citizens of The United States Of America simply just do not care anymore?” However, if you do care about “Mathematics” you must look back upon the Photograph of “911 Melted Granite” and you must ask yourself, “What has such ‘Mathematics’ that it could Vaporize Granite, and Melt Granite that use to be a level foundation of Granite for two One-Hundred and Ten story Skyscrapers; what has such ‘Mathematics’ to make Granite behave this way?'” EYE 5

    The average Human Being wants to believe that they know everything; therefore, the average Human Being does not use “Critical Thinking Skills;” such as, asking oneself, “What did cause the Vaporization and Melting of the Granite below The Twin Towers, and did Saudi Arabia use a Nuclear Bomb on the Nation of Yemen?” Both of these questions can be can be explored by using a search engine on the Internet such as Google, and the entry can be “911 Melted Granite” and the next search can be “Did Saudi Arabia nuke Yemen?” It could be quite possible that Nations are already throwing around Nuclear Devices as weapons, and the average Human Being does not even know; however, even in the “Information Age” the average Human Being of The United States Of America could care less to even search it on the Internet, and that is a sobering truth.
