    Because of him people had nuclear weapons in WWII. So he's expecting that WW III would be very devastating to human civilization. The survivors of WW III would be living in a different world. They'll basically start all over like the stone age. So the next war they'll go to would be fought with sticks & stones.

      Einstein discovered the mass-energy equivalence. Without him, nuclear weapons would not have been invented until ...until someone else discovered the mass-energy equivalence I guess.

    When Einstein was asked what kind of weapons World War III would be fought with, Einstein responded, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” The interpretation is the following: with the mass destruction weapons we have today, a WW III will eliminate civilization and the mankind with go back to dark-dark ages

    Einstein, at one point in his career, still believed that the atom could never be split. When Rutherford managed to do it, the potential for the nuclear bomb was unleashed, and sure enough the United States dropped 2 of them on Japanese cities in August 1945.

    Einstein was appalled and campaigned against nuclear weapons for the rest of his life. Although he said he didn't know what weapons would have been developed by the time a Third World War broke out, he clearly viewed those weapons as more powerful than those used to end the war in the Pacific in 1945. He was warning that we would be knocked back to the stone age.

    This is consistent with a theory I've been developing regarding population and technology. It is clear from studies of human development that population growth is the greatest driver of technological progression. If the human population begins to decrease, and especially if a catastrophic event wipes out much of civilization, we will have lost the ability to use the technology we have accumulated to that point.

    However, we will still have those stones. I'm more of a stick guy myself.

    Peace!

    I have Autism, Asperger. Einstein had it too. I did a study and in a few weeks I discovered how the entire world works. All the problems and his causes. Also how to solved this. The problem is that people that are "different" are less accepted. Autism helped the humankind evolved. It is not a dissease. Autism is the remaining of what humankind means. The most intelligent people are bullied and people don t listening to them. They are less social, because there brain is more intelligent of science and logica. Probably Because of Autism we reached the stone Age. Psychiatry are thinking everone that are different is a dissease. An illness. They helped Hitler with experiment with the Jews. (they where different? illness?) More and more people get an illness. (ADD, ADHD, Bordeline?) We destroy people that are different. We bulling them, We want to prevent other working brains. But humankind has evolved because different people in the sociaty. They are not dissorders. The Psychological Symptoms/complaints are an response because they can t handle the world that isn t built for them.

    More fighting on the internet. War.

    Einstein had some theory s to make war impossible. But I think he was different and the idea s where weird.

    We are doomed, because we don t listening anymore to people that are strange/different.

    Finally we are throwing Rocks to each other. That was what he means.

    He meant after World War 3, which would be thermonuclear, all there would be left to fight with is sticks and stones as we are bombed into the stone age. For more information on the subject, I suggest you watch Star Trek: The Original Series, episode, "The Omega Glory."

    He means that he believes the weapons of world war 3 would be powerful enough to knock out most of civilization. The remaining might live on, but there are chances that the only remains of the human race are the ones who will carry on the race, but without any technology, resetting us to become stone age people.
