  • Yes, science is a threat.

    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?

  • Where will it stop?

    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.

  • Science makes human beings lazier in life.

    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!

  • science is always a threat to humanity.

    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.

  • Yes, I think science is a threat to humanity

    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.

  • Science is a threat to humanity,

    We constantly hear of new scientific discoveries in our everyday lives. As human progresses, we constantly want our life to get more comfortable and the only way to do this is through science and technology. With science getting more and more advanced, lives are made comfortable, however we become spoilt. We want everything to be under our command and with the power of new age weapons, We end up harming each other. We may be as greedy as our ancient forefathers, but with our capabilities we are definitely much more dangerous than them. Therefore, I believe thst science is a threat to humanity as long as we are unable to use it responsibly and sensibly to its maximum potential.

    FIrstly, there was the breakthrough in nanotechnology. The latter refers to working with objects to its atomic level. This advanced technology no doubt brings about great advantages human lives, such as reducing the size of energy storage devices however i believe the cons outweigh the pros. Firstly, Though nanotechnology brings about great advancement in the fields of science, It may also cause mass poisoning. This is because nanotechnology involves dealing with extremely small particles that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. If foreign particles are introduced to our brain, It may very well affect our well being and mental health. This is a possible risk that may wipe out an entire population if a poisonous particle was released.

    Secondly, with science comes the creation of nuclear weapons. And with irresponsible leaders in power of such destructive weapons, our world is in danger. Wars started will involve the usage of nuclear weapons, for example the most traditional of nuclear weapon the atomic bomb, can blow up the entire singapore in seconds. This will cause mass homicide and the killing of many innocent people.

    Lastly, I believe that science has brought aboout major environmental issues such as global warming. Science has brought about the inventions of many machinery and factories to manufacture products. These factories emit some really harmful gases that not only destroys our ozone layer, it also emit large amounts of greenhouse gases that will warm up the entire earth. This eventually causes mass melting in the ice caps and mountains which will cause a rise in the sea level. A rise in the sea level will cause floods and “natural” disasters that will affect humans once again.

    In conclusion, I believe that Science is a threat to humanity. 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 destroy lives

    I think science is threat to humanity because now days bomb are invented which can kill thousand of million of people in few seconds new weapons are invented for robery. People are rebelling against there own blood. Many people are suffering from the effect of science like floods landscapes etc.

  • People need to take care of themselves

    People focus to much on one science problem and don't worry about their self, so science is too much of a distraction for people which leads to no time with family and they cannot take care of their personal needs. In this case we should spend more time with family.

  • Yes.Science is a threat to humanity.

    The advancement in technology has really been positive for our society, but this has also played a major role in destroying environment. The cities of Japan Nagasaki and Herosheema were destroyed with a strong bomb blast. What is a bomb? Type of technology! Several people were killed in this and those who just heard it became deaf! The kids born there are without legs or arms because of this. Target killing, shooting e.T.C. Some of the small problems are like we cannot live without fans an air conditioners. How did the old people in ancient times live ? They, I'm certain, lived a better life then us. They didn't had these things but they lived a peaceful live.

  • No, science helps humanity

    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.

  • Is Mcdonalds a threat?

    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 a threat to HUMANITY

    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, science is a benefit for humanity

    I do not believe that science is a threat to humanity, but rather one of humanity's greatest allies. There are many great inventions and advancements that we have made that would not have been remotely possible without science. Science is one of the few tools we have that can affect significant positive change on the world.

  • No science is not a threat to humanity

    No, I do not think that science is a threat to humanity. Humanity has to thank science for all that it has done for people. Finding cures for diseases, man walking on the moon, learning new things with technology all help humankind and doesn't hinder at all on our humanity or wellbeing.

  • No, humanity owes virtually everything to science.

    Science doesn't threaten anything any more than a knife lying on a table. People and our flaws are what threatens us and the only reason we are threatened is because we have so much to lose. We have used science to create communication devices that prevent massive losses of life. We have used science to begin to explore space, which we must some day colonize if we hope to out live our planet.

  • Science is not the threat!!!

    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

    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.

  • Humans are the problem, not science

    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.

I agree that Science does not pose a threat to humanity because as a result of scientist who cared to dream spontaneous yet useful invention were created which could help save humanity.
