  • Scientists are doing more harm than good.

    Albert Einstein, supposedly the greatest man who has ever lived, is one of the inventors of the atomic bomb. I have a problem with people being praised for being destructive.

    Who invented dynamite? Scientists. Who created pesticides? Scientists. Agent orange, HFCS, and drugs like PCP? Science started it all.

    Some scientific ideas may sound nice, but it is usually to correct their own problems. Cancer is the product of asbestos, cell phone radiation, chemicals, etc. Diabetes happens mostly with people who eat too much sugar, which wasn't cheaply available until the geeks invented HFCS.

    It's about time we humans stop trying to be some "dominant" species. Thanks to our globalized society, it is easy for a disease to spread from one person to the whole world in less than a month, assuming someone catches it and rides a plane the next day. We are also causing the extinction of many animals and destroying our only home, Earth. And people simply suggest to push it all under the bed and find a new home in space.

    People are wasting resources in space travel (which does nothing more than let geeks fulfill their fantasies), ocean exploration (which isn't even our ecosystem, plus many of the animals down there are brought up for experimentation), and discovering new elements, many of which last just 1 millisecond. And why should it matter what shape the Earth is, what we're made of, or where we came from? Doesn't affect me the slightest. It would be nice to see that money be spent on, say, children in Africa.

    Survival of the fittest helps ensure that ideal traits get passed down to the next generation, but science has allowed us to fool the system, so our children will not be more robust. The invention of braces has made it so having straight-tooth genes no longer matters. Eyeglasses, contacts, LASIK, etc., have allowed people with bad eyes to survive and compete. This may SOUND like a good thing, until you realize it means poor vision and crooked teeth will never be eliminated from the gene pool. If all this technology failed, humanity is doomed.

  • Although I enjoy how science has helped, it has done more harm than good.

    In a monopolized consumer world, we have always demanded that science doesn't think, but instead we ask it to create, at any expense, our hearts desires as fast as possible. For example, cars and climate change. Created in 1886, cars were relatively left unchecked til 1924 when oil started polluting waters from overdrilling and lack of care for the environment. Several politicians tried over decades only to be met with scientists lying about facts and enforcement agencies paid off to shut up. Progress ran over oversight. By this time, not only did it destroy aquatic biomes, but it took land and air with it as well. Although, "science" had provided 2 better modes of thought such as steam engines and electric cars. Too bad it would take actual scientific brains to make them better. In other words, Time. Something science knows all too well. For it is science that wrote this moniker "Time is Money." Not thought. Not safety. Not care for human life. Faster time is science. Easy money is science. And it will take Real Science to fight unchecked Science. And this is just one case of how science is cool AND harmful.

  • I agree with every thing these people say

    I think e should stop trying to be the dominate species maybe its just our time to leave or at least e can stop with sending monkeys to space haven't we already done that lets stop space crafts and just live our normal lives as humans because our world can only take so much oil spills gas leaks etc..

  • Check the doomsday clock

    Prior to the scientific revolution, the doomsday clock was hours before midnight. Thanks primarily to science the doomsday clock is now seconds before the dead of night. I think the problem lies in the manner that science masquerades as an independent entity, rather than seeing itself as just part of the whole. This is the insight of the poet William Blake, who saw the fall of humanity in Urizen (reason) breaking off from other vital life functions.

  • Technology Is Death

    What you are doing now is hurting and straining your eyes. Radiation is coming from the very electronic you are reading this from. Or maybe you used a printer to print, but the ink you use smells of dangerous chemicals. Don't think for a moment your safe on the other side of the TV, because radiation travels. Cancer is staring you in the face, and you don't even know.

  • Yes it is

    As we don't need all of these things to live and survive, not any of it. We don't need computers, laptops, cars, electricity we can survive all on our own, we are just too afraid of dying, dying is inevitable and so should not be feared, but I think some people fear it as they can have so much if they carry on living which proves that we are too dependent on technology and therefore will be our downfall...

  • No it is not bad

    Science is not bad it is a marvelous thing it has cures tons of horrible diseases like smallpox and without science you wouldn't Evan be able to read or write much less type any of your options on a computer much less a phone and by the way cancer is not caused by asbestos

  • Upsides of science

    Well, we may have tricked evolution, however, evolution also affects other animals and lifeforms, and it could be that some mutant virus could just trick our evolved immune system, and could only be eradicated using science. Also, I intend to industrialize space with the ideas we have. Right now, we have a loss put into aerospace technology, however, we could easily turn mars into a huge mine, because it consists of a lot of iron oxide, and there's no ecosystem we could hurt there. Actually, I am quite an industrious fella, I specialize myself in IT and AI programming, and intend to make life for a lot of people easier by programming them electronic companions, or actual electronic scientists and platforms we can conduct science on instead of doing it in reality. See, agent orange originally only was meant to deforest Vietnam, having it kill and mutate the people only was a "nice" side effect, at least for the americans during the war. Also, we can use science to stop the global warming the earth would do even without mankind, as earths orbit isn't as perfect as always praised, and would naturally have a slow heat up. However, with advancing technology, we could impregnate our atmosphere with oxygen mined from the moon and mars, build our industries using iron from mars, power everything using gases from titan and Jupiter, we could develop nearly indestructible materials that allow us to easily build skyscrapers many kilometers high. If we were to actually do this, we'd need less building space, so more space for nature.

  • Science is good

    Science is Important! Science answers the questions we have of how things are made and what they are composed of; such as ourselves. Science can move a country to better health systems, less pollution, and it creates more jobs. Yes it has is pros and cons just like any other thing in the world, but the pros are lot more in quantity than the cons are.

  • Science is not bad

    Science had done many invention in our daily life .We are so much advance now that we had now flown up to the moon also.Long year ago when their was no spot of science the life span of persons was vey less about 30 to 40 years ,but now had been advancesd in medical science sector that today the life span of a peron is 70 to 80 year old.If science had created a deives which are harming environment it had created a device also to slove that problem.If we would take the exampe of pollution it is the biggest issue in the world science had created pollution free car which runs on solar energy .If the humans will use the science in right manner it would take it to a glory which is not possible now to imagine

  • Science is not bad at all

    Science make everybody a better living conditions.What would happen if we don't have science? Then we would not be difference than animal.Iknow that science also has negative effect but that comes from humanity. Everything on this earth has positive and negative effect.But it only depend on how you use it. For that you have to use your intelligent and try to manage to pick up only the good thing. IF you use science in such as helping the environment, improve medicine technology and education then it would be fine. Now a day in some country invent cars and airplanes using solar energy which is very good to our planet. This can help problem such as global warming.
