Can you elaborate on Einstein's guilt? I am assuming you mean his
recommendation of the A-bomb in WW II.

There have been two atomic weapons used in warfare. Perhaps 100,000 people
died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Total deaths due to nuclear power are
probably under 100 worldwide, not counting Chernobyl. Well under a million
by all conceivable nuclear related causes.

Last count I heard, 'Der Fuhrer' was responsible for about 10 million
total, and almost the complete extermination of the Jews of Europe.

Seems like quite a stretch..
