Creators of the atom bomb thought it would be the best thing to happen to the war. We knew the consequences and potential of this weapon, but we did not know the strength and power of our own violence. "I'll think you'll find," said Dr. Breed, "that everybody does about the same amount of thinking. Scientists simply think about things in one way, and other people think about things in others" (Vonnegut, 14). It won us the war, but today we realize the destruction we created to our own world. Similar to ice-nine, the Marines that asked for the weapon wanted it to make fighting easier in the swamps, marshes, and mud. Dr. Hoenikker, thinking from a scientific point of view realized the logic and power ice-nine had to end the world. He saw the truth in a scientific way rather than humanity's point of view.
