Many of the problems the earth is faced with today and in the future are because of advances in Science. Pollution, nuclear, GM foods , man made viruses and diseases, toxic chemicals an ageing and weaker human race from medical science which also contributed to the world be over populated as it is today. Should we just obey Mother Nature to do her job? The Natural earth has survived for a long time without science intervention so why do we dry to save it with science?

Although science may have caused problems on the earth, It has also helped to create many advantages for humans, and other species. Some of these include medicine and all health related subjects, and modern technology such as phones, and computers.

Because of advances in scientific discoveries there is now more being done to fix those problems that were created before. If the humans were to let Mother Nature do her job without intervening, then there would be many species that are extinct because man has helped to prevent the extinction of more than one species.

Yes, we as humans have created problems with science, but if we were to give up on science then there would be many more problems because more evolution in science has lead to amazing discoveries that help to heal the wounds created by past generations.

Since my opponent has forfeited this round, I will continue to follow in my same path.

If we were to stop learning and teaching science, the there would no longer be any new discoveries. People would not be able to find cures for diseases that have no cure. The world would stop innovating, and it may end up going back to the way it was during the time of the homo-sapiens. Science is a very important factor that, if cut from the education program, could cause a greater problem than anything that has ever been done before.
