How many millions of people have died due to Nobel’s invention?

Hello!

Yes, of course I will add some photographs. It is quite amazing!

Now, mr poopiekat. I suppose you are referring to the dynamite and not the rubber… In my opinion it is to blame the people and not the actual dynamite..

Thank you regardless for your comment.

Cheers

Of course the dynamite made the railroads possible. After the
railroads came refrigerated rail cars and with them came the
possibility of distributing fresh food and medicine to previously
isolated areas. How many lives were saved?

Ok, quite true and I’m sorry to have jumped on this in that way. As I recall this whole thing about the ‘Nobel Prize’ was instituted by him to atone for his creation of a substance that could be (and IS) used in such horrific crimes against humanity. Yeah, I’d feel guilty too. To this day, Akzo-Nobel is involved in research in genetically modified crops, and a whole bunch of other two-faced swords of controversy.

Basically if you look at a lot of inventions over the years most can be used for good or evil

Sorry Minlan but if I bring one more horse drawn coach home the missus will throw a fit. Would love to see some pictures though.

True Rustynails, unfortunately man has a penchant for pride, blood and death. Take Albert Einsteins work and how it got turned into the atmic bomb.
