The Nuclear Bomb is the most powerful weapon on Earth

The government would not have a more powerful weapon than a nuclear bomb due to the fact that there is no other weapon the United States government has that is legal. Biological weapons may be more destructive than nuclear weapons, but the United States has ratified the 1925 Geneva Protocol and the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention. So, in reality, production and research of biological warfare is illegal. Unless there is evidence that the United States government is violating these treaties, it is unnecessary to accuse the U.S. government of researching biological warfare. So, to conclude, the United States government does not have a more powerful weapon that a nuclear bomb.

Doesn't matter if anyone has a more powerful weapon than a so-called nuclear bomb because there are enough nuclear warheads to obilerate the world's civilizations and turn this oblate into a rock devoid of any types of sophisticated life forms

Your argument is that there enough nuclear bombs to destroy the world, which is true unfortunately. The nuclear bomb is undeniably the most powerful of conventional weapons. I would argue though that a genetically enhanced/modified virus would be more deadly. For example the black plague one of the most deadly virus's in history killed over a third of the population of Europe. I know we've moved on a bit since then medically but think how much damage a virus that was intentionally designed to be deadly could do.

You would only need one Glass Phial of the virus, not 10,000 nukes.

Open your eyes maaaaaaaaaaan. The government has all kinds of crazy stuff they wont let the public use. My cousin swears he knows a guy who works at the CIA and he says that they have Hover cars already and they're working on ways to read your thoughts through traffic cameras maaaaaaan.

I would argue that this is an answer to the question, i believe that the government has a secret biological weapon which is more powerful than a nuke

Absolutely. 'The Gullible Idiot' is the most destructive force on earth and has never really NEEDED improvement. In fact, TGI upgrades (or downgrades really) itself in some situations according to the whim of the user, allowing proper remote, clean control of the TGI. However, Mental Subversion-ware, like 'Sexual Guilt 2K' , fear and threat of social/physical torture can be uploaded to the TGI, ensuring perfect, smooth control and a possible boomerang effect, should the TGI manage to escape your grasp at some point. But as long as you get em while they are young, the same old bull will usually work, and even be passed on, automatically, to further generations of TGI models. BTW...the link for current release version of Sexual Guilt 2K from proprietary programmers American Family Association: http://www.afa.net/

Our government is definitely researching defenses against biological weapons. It is proven that the best defense is a well prepared offense. Even if they don't purposefully engage in weaponizing the results of their work, most definitely do research into forming new, abstract weapons, in order to "gain insight into future threats". I.E. we are at the very least developing the technology and information behind the weapons...we just aren't using them. Yet.

I hope there is a more powerful weapon that the government is hiding. So we can ues it on the alions if they are hostil. And hidden so we don't use it on our own people.
