God is referred to by The Bible as being ‘causa si’ (something that creates itself) which demonstrates how God, as creator, is omnipotent (all-powerful), because He has no creator and therefore no one more powerful than Himself. In addition, the Gospel of Isaiah refers to God as creator on multiple occasions: ‘Do you not know?

The USA spent 2 billion USD to develop and build the bomb, and it would've been a huge waste of money and time if the bomb was not used.
