THE INVENTION THAT HAS HAD THE MOST NEGATIVE EFFECT ON OUR WORLD.
THE INVENTION THAT HAS HAD THE MOST NEGATIVE EFFECT ON OUR WORLD.

The development of science and technology had influenced men and is still influencing them into various and numerous discoveries and inventions. So many inventions of man have had negative impact on our world, but to this writer, the most of all that has had negative impact on our world is invention of nuclear weapons,
When I hear of nuclear weapon which according to Wikipedia means an explosive device which drives its destructive force from nuclear reaction, I wonder what benefit it gives to our world.
I had a scary experience even as a child of 12years old in 2010 in a village called Tafawa Balewa in Bauchi state in Nigeria. One fateful Saturday morning, I cannot forget, my older brothers and I went to fetch water at a place of about half a mile from our home and we heard a sound ‘’kpo! Kpo!! kpo!!” followed by another version of sound “boom”. At a time the sound became sporadic and we saw people shouting in their native language “tatilidioo, tatilidioo” meaning “war o-o, war o-o-o”.
I saw people running helter scelter, to me, it was as if I was in a nightmare, but alas, it was real, yes real war, the village has been attacked by terrorists.
The attack continued intermittently throughout the whole of 2010 and some part of 2011. Each attack left the village with scores of dead bodies, amputees, destroyed buildings, wounded people both of the villagers and the attackers. In fact, the village was a gory sight. The memories of the devastating effects of AK47 gun and bomb in several attacks we had in Tafawa Balewa village normally leave me with goose pimples, and when I imagine how the village would have looked like if the attacks were with nuclear weapons, I would shrug and shudden knowing that I may not have been alive to tell my experience. It would have been a total wipeout.
In terms of nuclear weapon, not just humanity is threatened and terrorized but also the ecological environment. Example of nuclear menace that happened in history are attacks in Hiroshima on the 6th of August, 1945 and Nagasaki on the 9th of August, 1945 respectively, the two cities in japan. Till today japan is still counting her loses.
When you listen to documentaries, and watch the carnage and ruinous effects of nuclear weapon has had on human beings, buildings, and other properties, when you listen to television news and watch how countries drag matters of nuclear weapons, you will snap your fingers and exclaim “the invention of nuclear weapon has had the most negative impact on our world”.
