God & existence of nuclear weapon

A new (scientific) form of the age old "problem of evil" question goes like this:

Why would God create a universe in which nuclear weapons are possible?

Robert John Russell gave a very good new (scientific) answer by first stating the theology of creation. My summary of his answer:
God created our current cosmos that is governed by various mechanical systems (for eg. Einstein's special relativity) in order to give rise to humans like ourselves to enter into an everlasting relationship with Him. And with such various mechanical systems around, the rise of humans' technological development based on these systems is unavoidable.
You may read Russell's answer at The Center of Theology and the Natural Sciences website.
