    Introduction
    Bio-Enhanced weapons have been used since before the Roman Empire, so far back that it is hard to determin the origin of their creation.
    This thread will explore the useage of Bio-enhanced weaponry and how it has evolved both weapons and medical treatment, and also how it can be progressed further.
    take to note that I'm still in collage so some of these ideas of progression are basic and not well thought through.


    First Bio-Enhanced Weapons
    The first Bio-Enhanced were that of poison, Humans killed animals and cut down/took samples of plants to create poison for arrows, blades and in general poisoning a person any way they could (this was used for poisoning waters supplies and food supplies).
    These were seen as effective because it normally reduced the ability of the opposition without putting in the effort required to kill them directly at full strength, they used Animals like Spiders and other creatures that they had found a poisonus touch to, they then reallised that even a low poison at a high consentration or a high ammount can also do allot of damage to a persons body.



    Medical Progression
    The medical progression after and for some "Tribes" before the Bio-enhanced weaponry was the Antidote (Cure), some people developed it before because of their enviroment, (they had allot of Preditors around them that were seen as venomus, so they created a way to reduce the effects of the Poison or in some cases fully Stop the Poison) unfortunetly this was only for weaker poisons because the stronger ones they didnt have enough time to react to the situation and create the Medical remedy.
    unlike the time of today they didn't have Equipment, they relied on the herbs and other plants around them to try find a cure to save them, some believed it to be magic and they believed this for a long time (most of the way throught time before it could be solved) but it was simple plant ingrediants crushed together to make a paste that was smothered on the wound to reduce the effects.




    How the Bio-Enhanced Weapons have Evolved like we have
    As the human race has evolved so has our weapons and our knowlage on all things medical and scientific.
    Following the developement of basic poisons from animals and plants, people began to mix poisons to create stronger ones, they understood how they could consentrate it, they also leart that other waste products of animals could be used for other usefull things.
    E.G. Pig Fat could be burnt to create more heat and sometimes a larger Flame, this also lead to them discovering that when a enclosed enviroment and trapped when Pig Fat burns it builds pressure and can cause massive explosions (this lead to sappers, they built a tunnel under a wall and filled the section under the wall with Pigs and closed it off , they then added some flamable fuel (hay) and burnt the Pigs alive (they were kept alive for easy transportation) this then created allot of heat under the wall and because they collapced the tunnel the pressure builds up under the wall untill it explodes upwards and rips the wall appart).
    Modern Day Bio-enhanced Weapons are Bio-Chemical they are fused with explosive weaponry to cause massive demage on human life, this type of weaponry can be anything from a virus to a decomposer, not much is seen into this type of weaponry because it is still in full development.






    Medical advancements from warfare and now Bio-Warfare
    The Usefullness of war is unparalled during times of war a large percentage% of money is invested into the Developements of Weapons, the developments of those weapons unravel codes that were unseen when in a relaxed enviroment, they enable massive production of Medical Advancements no matter how small, Each nation thinks progressively on what they can do to protect there soilders, this can result in the Advancement of Medical Facilities by 50-years or more During and after the war, so from Weapons we learn to make Medicens.





    Future Progression of Bio-Technology
    In the Future the human race can either Destroy its self through warfare or it can create the technology to enable the habitation of other planets, the creation of more Bio-Weaponry could result in a type of weapon that only knocks the person uncontious, meaning that few innocent people will be harmed by the mistakes of their goverment.(this fact is debateable)




    This is a Simple thing that is probably not worth looking at but it is noteable that some of this is the truth

    Developing bio-weapons should be a crime against humanity for which international arrest warrants and interpol mandates should apply the second the criminal and anyone in the chain of command up to the president steps out of the criminally reckless and barbaric country that engages in the research.

    I think if it were up to you Icewendengo, the development of any kind of weapon would be a crime against humanity. Technically, pepper spray is something that would fall into this category, and you could ask any number of women who've used it to ward off an attack whether they think the inventor ought to have been jailed.

    Lol good point, indeed im very much against spending human ingenuity resources and time on implements designed to kill other humans, i should have been born 2 centuries later (if humanity can outgrow its cavemanish tendencies)I do see a functional difference between A. ) a letal weaponized hyper contageous ebola-ish bio weapon, B. ) a glock pistol with 17 bullets, and C. ) a pepper spray can.If you enter in a biker's bar to kill as many people as you can with your pepper spay can odd are you will get a good beating, if you enter with the pistol blazing odds are you will kill more than one person, if you enter with a contageous virus you could kill millons of people around the world. Cheers

    Btw, speaking of cavemen and pepperspray made me think of the neanderthal policeman (john pike or something?) and his pepper spray, the images of the guy spraying everyone in all sorts of scenes is hillarous. And hitler video complaining about it is funny to as usual

    but surely that the development of weapons will enhance future development on whe whole

    I'm thinking of a hypothetical bacterium with the following characteristics:

    1. Is not gram-negative
    2. Is free of lipopolysaccharide
    3. Is coagulase-negative
    4. Is non-allergenic
    5. Relies solely on homolactate fermentation for energy and therefore does not generate any CO2.
    6. Is an aerotolerant-anaerobe [can survive in oxygen but doesn't use it for respiration or otherwise require it].
    7. Is hemolysin-negative
    8. Is free of super-antigens
    9. Is non-inflammatory
    10. Does not trigger an immune response

    This bacterium specifically attacks certain parts of the brain in such a manner that the infection results in only one symptoms -- instant, permanent, and complete psychological dissociation. Dissociation can be an extremely terrifying experience for the enemy.

    So how does this bacterium end up in the enemy-combatant's brain? Initially, this bacterium is mixed with butter. Second, this butter is then thrown onto the enemy's skin. Third, a bacterial cell from the butter attacks the stratum corneum of the skin of the enemy until it finds a nerve-ending. Fourth, the bacterium, attacks the nerve-ending and from there, it spreads to the brain via the the neurons of the afferent somatic peripheral nervous system. Fifth, this bacterium ends up in the central nervous system were is begins to attack the psyche of the enemy -- leading to an eternal dissociative state of mind.

    This bacterium disables the enemy by causing irreversible psychological trauma.

    True Bio-Weapons were designed to serverly maim people and cause the other side to care for them and use resourses, like the military rifle SA-80.
    But it was noted that there are some weapons that can be used to help people at the same time, if we can progress our technology well enough we can see how we can use it to our advantage, we could make a gas that when set off and gets into the person/animals body it targets a virus/bacteria, people have been trying to do this from the start of time but never had the resourses to take a look at it in detail like we can now.
    The fact of the world being corruped with the people that want to kill people is bad enough with trying to develope these types of weapons but we are required to persist on what we can do to in order to acheive everything we can, now we dont know anything to be honest we just do what we feel but if there is other Life forms that could be hostile wouldnt it be easier to have some weapons that we can use?
