    There always have been, and there always will be tools, not meant to be weapons by the inventor, but used as sch anyway, In that case the scientist has no fault.

    In my ethics of responsibility class I heard, that in modern society, different ranks are necessary, and that responsibility is, and must be delegated to the one of higher rank (politician, superior), thats why the politician, and the politician only is guilty (well, not for crimes comited during the war, not ordered by him, but for the "soldiers killed in an appropriate way in terms of warfare).
    If all the people in some way connected to "the kill" were responsible, society wouldnīt work.
    The person who gained the right to make decisions, gained the responsibility for them as well, and the low rank soldier, who canīt make a decision, has no responsibility as well.

    i agree with the different levels of responsibility. i mean the scientists who have engineered the product probably made it for good of humanity, not to abuse it. a soldier on the battlefield maybe forced to kill someone simply because the other guys are trying to kill him. politicians technically know the responsibility of the massive losses of human lives but their circumstances are different simply because they are the ones in power whether they are corrupt or not. they are the one's who give the order, not firing the gun.
    and guns don't kill people, bullets do.

    kekekekeke.

    you'll only be guilty when you get caught/found out

    kekekekeke.

    Seriously? I think it depends on a great many things, but ultimately stems from the society from which the sin originated. It takes a village to raise a child, as afrikaans say.
    If that child turns astray, then the village is ultimately to blame.

    We all have a choice.
    The choice to use weapons,or the choice to obey someone who wants us to kill other people.
    Weapons are a natural part of our evolution (sadly...) and they are there to keep us alive (in the Stone Age to keep predators away and to get something to eat).Nowadays weapons are simply means of mass destruction/murder.....

    => People in general are guilty,cuz itīs our mess xD

    The victim. The weapon wouldn't have hurt anybody yet if the target had disarmed their assailant.

    The morality of using a weapon is meaningless if we do not know for what purpose the weapon is used.

    Likewise, if we cannot know the circumstances and reasonable outcomes of using a weapon, the entire question itself becomes an exercise in futility.

    How would the scientist possibly be guilty? If I kill someone with my shoe, they can't blame the shoe designer or the kid in the sweatshop that made it. They can blame me, or themselves.
