        Soooo... I can use the philosopher's stones to make nuclear weapons?

          I think you forgot to take in account the energy required for the transmutation. Alchemists use the power of the Earth below the crust to fuel the transmutations, but the homunculus regeneration doesn't need to touch the ground to create it, so they should be getting all the energy from the stone itself.

            Don't forget lust regenerated a few times throughout the anime right?

                              Don't you think that father would have gained most of the soul population of xerxes back overtime, and had more than enough souls to create the humunculi? Or maybe gave Hohenheim enough souls to make him immortal and to cheat him out of a few deaths? It just seems like father would have just gave him like 3/4 of the philosopher stone, then restore his 1/4 back by creating another philosopher stone within 400 years, then manipulated human population and start wars to carve the blood crests, but only save a majority of the crest area population for human transmutation. Then after restoring what he gave to Hohenheim, created more philosopher stones to create humunculi by just taining them with that sin in order to purge himself and be more closer to godhood.

                                          Only one mathematical is noted that Wrath (a human based humonculi) actually only has one soul in his philosophers stone...

                                                Slight correction on the virtues, older translations convert the word agape into charity but it actually means love. I can understand the misunderstanding though since ancient Greeks had several words for love but agape specifically means love based upon principles and not requiring an emotional context. A selfless compassion and deep respect for a stranger or enemy for example.

                                                    The only channel that can ruin your childhood? I think that is false. Only truth is that most likely you're one of the only channels with this much "followers." Heck I could also make a channel that breaks down stuff but won't get much views or people wanting to follow. Oh also animes/mangas we know ain't really real but we like the concept. Like how would I gain ability where where I can fly but only when I bent my middle fingers inwards to my palm. On another note you could t of done of any this math. How long has she been alive for also how many times has she actually gotten hurt and or died before all this. Don't you just love it when people just want views.

                                                            The lesson that FMA is trying to reach is that the soul is something that can't be honestly and willingly traded.
                                                            If you're still willing to MAKE the trade when all the cards are on the table, then the values must not be equivalent. Al and Ed's mom was sure a hell of a lot more valuable to them than pocket change in chemicals, a few drops of blood, and a few years of research. If you had the whole world, and were still WILLING to offer it, that would prove EVEN IT wasn't enough.

                                                              When he divided the seven deadly sins from the souls, they aren't equally divided but based on the individuals sins and their amount of sins. Greed is the most common sin and is hugely present on almost every single human being. Wonder why he couldn't speculate on this.
