I strongly agree. Our lives are in danger because bombs are made to blast thousands or millions of people. New guns are made for robbery. People are rebelling against their own blood, and it's not fair. This all is done by the cruel advancement of science. Can you believe science has increased the capability of men to kill each other?
Although I understand the view that science has brought us many benefits, I think people often forget its consequences. It has enabled countries to create terrifying Weapons of Mass Destruction, has caused numerous ethical questions to be raised and is a constant threat to humanity with the danger that it may never stop, and we will become our own worst enemy. Even some of science's greatest achievements like the discovery of antibiotics has caused massive implications through the uncontrollable population increase. For these reasons and many more I think scientists should be very careful about how far they go to improve society as it could in fact turn into a serious threat to humanity.
Yes, I agree that science did made our life easier but we cant deny the impact that bring to human beings, that we become lazier nowadays. People nowadays are too dependent on the invention of science. Thanks to science that we cannot even do simple jobs like wash our own clothes. Washing machine has taken over the job for us. My dear opponent, can you imagine if electricity cut down, who's going to do the job for you? Only you, yourself! So stop rely too much on science to do your job and make your life meaningless. Moreover, nowadays people tends to drive to the gym just to walk on the treadmills! How ironic!
we may be living in a modern world with the influence of science however does it makes any difference? many people are still suffering the effect of science. The floods, global warming and etc. Science may help us, but the total destruction it causes us is just one-fourth of the benefits it give us.
It's true we owe a lot to science, all the convenience and creature comforts we enjoy on earth wouldn't have been possible without advances in science. The downside is that all this technology can and will be used against us. Look at the atomic bomb, with the destruction it caused and that was almost seventy years ago. The weapons we have now, would make the atomic bomb look like a firecracker. Then you have people who get greedy for profits and use technology for their own benefit; not worrying about the welfare of anyone or anything else. As much as I would like to say no, as long as we have a world full of greedy people in power, who are only thinking about the next big payday; science will always be a threat.
It is true that it is because of the advancement of science that leads to global warming a,we cannot deny the fact that it is due to the advancing science we get beforehand news of the upcoming natural disasters.For example It is due to the advancing science that we came to know about the cyclone "hudhud" and the inhabitants of Visakhapatnam were safely evacuated which otherwise might have caused massive destruction.
Humans by nature is selfish. We want more and the easy way to obtain it is through science and technology. However, we constantly forget that there is a price to pay for such conveniece we recieve. We harm the environment, we harm ourselves and this may lead to our end. Therefore, I belive that science is the root of all evil and it threatens humanity.
It is a threat because it is taking advantage in medicines . Ofcourse if there is no science we will be in a early man stage but with a less population and less needs . But in the development of science there is more population and more needs this increases the global warming and population in our world . Many say that the world's population is beyond it's limit due to science . SO,IT IS A THREAT
If you look at the people in the amazon or in the rainforests you can see how wonderful their life is without science. Sure their life is boring as hell without technology but they are 10 times for healthier than any of us Londoners or city people their skin is amazingly clear and have never even hear of cancer because they have never had it.
Science is trying to get to the point where it can control almost anything around it. In other words science is trying to create its own man kind "god". Science is the way of showing humans are scared of death and fear that their is nothing more after we die.Yet the act of dying is utterly outside anyone's control. Science has advance so much that it has prolonged life expectancy but people don't see the terrible side of it. It has made us change so much that it has us inclined us to want perfection so much which is creating so much jealousy between us humans. I think people should start understanding to not depend so much on science for our future or it might bring it to end of human kind existence.
Science helps humanity because it is how we heat our homes up, how we keep our food fresh. Science is how we know the world around us. Science is also even a solution to things like global warming. Science does not pose a threat to humanity unless it is misused or used irresponsibly.
Science has made different destructive weapon but does the word ''DESTRUCTIVE'' would be right because weapon like pistols , guns can
be used for self defence nowadays every one should have guns or small pistols to carry because of kidnapping , robbery , etc .
We can use science weapons in good ways all the workings women would get help from the new science technology like washing machines , microwaves etc instead of making any one lazy it will help to save their time and their different things which helps to save our time , then to make us lazy like cars , railway trains , mobile phones etc.
No of course science is not a threat to humanity. This would be in comparison to the calorie count in a Mcdonald's menu. Everything in moderation, how can science be blamed for the mistakes of humanity, like spoken previously it is merely a tool that we use. Yes in some cases it is used for destructive purposes, although it is often confused with the wrongful intentions of a human. How can it be so different to a caveman killing another with a much simpler tool? They both had the wrongful intention. Yes we would be in a very different place today without science. Although without the knowledge of say bacteria, who knows, without it you could've died from a spread of e.Coli simply by not washing your hands.
Science is not the the treat because it help us in aspects of life. Tell us how to live and make us able talk to our family members, friends and relatives through internet. Except this there are many other factors those support this point that science is not the threat.
Science saves lives every single day. A few years ago, we wouldn't have a defibrilator, so someone having a heart attack would be long gone. People with cancer would have no chemotherapy, and they probably wouldn't even know that they had cancer. They would just die, and wouldn't get the chnace to grow up.
As stated, I believe that the problem is humans and not scientific advancements or discovery. Some may argue that we use science to kill millions. Yes, they are right. However, note how it is HUMANS that are using science to kill. Science by itself is harmless, it is the manner in which we choose to apply it that can be harmful. However, science can also be a tool for good, to cure diseases and create wonderful new technologies. As for science facilitating life to the point where we are lazy, that is our decision to do nothing, not science's. To conclude, I believe that science is human curiosity put to work, pushing the boundaries of what we understand. It is explaining the inconceivable, devising the impossible. I find it inexplicably exciting and unmatched in terms of social and technological advancement. If we allow it, science will help us build the future and do the impossible.
Without the advancement of science in fields like physics astro-physics and biologists, we would not know what the universe is made up of, we would not know what we are or how we were formed. To those people who say things like "Science increases new weapons and more deaths". That is part of life, we can not stop it from happening, plus science makes our lives easier by taking the challenge out of menial tasks so that we can focus on bigger challanges and answer the nig questions in life.
Science itself does not do harm to humanity. Science teaches us a lot of things, and it helps us understand our world better, but it does not hold to key to the destruction of humanity, it does not teach us how to destroy, we the humankind do the destruction instead.
The ones using science are the threat and of course the ones using science are the ones with money. I am speaking as a scientist. Corporations are the threat as they are the ones with the money. Science can be so much more than it currently is but then again the same could be said for the world.
I say that science is not a threat to humanity because it is not science that been a threat in humanity but HUMAN. For example, drugs. Scientists create drug or pill to cure disease but people use it for evil. It is clear that science is not a threat in life.
