What would happen if we were to detonate a very very powerful nuclear weapon on the moon? Would the explosion knock its orbit towards earth, causing tidal waves and misery? Could the moon be destroyed, showering the earth in a rain of meteoric death?

    Technicaly we talk about 100 mt nuke but depending on Car Bomba that was supposed to be detonated at 150 mt but scientist got scraed so they decreased it to 50 mt.
    So actually a 100 mt isn't so strong depending on when the Car Bomba Was constructed with 150 mt. Probably today biggest bomb can be unlimitedatly powerful and could reach about 1.500 megatons of pure destuction. God bless it to not explode anyways

      the extra 10000 years is because humans haven't been recording history 100% of the time and so he added 10000 years to the human existence. Edit: he didn't really ADD existence just....acknowledge it but i couldnt frame it better

(Isaiah 66:4 [KJV]) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation of John 20:15 [KJV]) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
