Tools

There's a theory that man has evolved to be able to take advantage of tools. However, the earliest tools, as demonstrated by chimpanzees, are sticks used to fish termites out of holes. These sticks are sharp, and nobody likes to get poked in the eye with a sharp stick.

Thus the evolution of war, and the arms race from sticks to stones to cannons to atom bombs exploding in the Nevada desert, near Area 51.
