    If anyone ever did invent teleporting, then one of the best uses would be free power generation. Even in the army, launching spy satellites seems like a more sensible use than transporting soldiers.

    I for one and glad they don't have such power.

    God help us if they ever do.

    In terms of actual raw military power, they can't really get any more of it. If they would swap nuclear weapons for teleportation, they might actually be less powerful overall.

    And it was my understanding that they think God is on their side.

    Teleporting to different dates is called time travel.
