    Man, in all his hubris, could never match nature's fury throughout the whole of history, until the last century. Before then Nature could destroy empires that no army could, nature could re-shape the enviroment in a manner man could never hope to replicate, and nature could destroy all it touched with a potency that men could only dream to one day achieve. This changed forever on July 16th, 1945. Man had harnessed the power of the atom, and with it could match nature in all its glory, and all its bloodlust. At long last man had within his grasp the ability to end all life as we know it. Since the end of the Cold War we haven't put much thought into the nightmare that is Armageddeon. Yet with the proliferation of nuclear weapons that has emerged since the fall of the Soviet Union, the End is not out of sight. A scenario not unlike that envisioned in Tom Clancy's The Sum of All Fears is not impossible. Terrorists may soon, or may already, have within their power the ability to destroy a city, and therein possibly end the world. So as we watch the devestation unleashed by Mother Nature upon the people of Florida, keep in mind this is but a sample of the true horror that could be unleashed upon mankind if the genie were to be let out of the bottle, and The Second Conjecture were fulfilled. As bad as things are, they can become far worse. We are fighting against the clock, and musn't lose sight of our goals.
