Is science helpful (yes) or does it cause ill effects (no)?

  • Science is Essential for Civilization

    When people think of science they think of good and bad outcomes of it. Science created the atomic bomb, chemical weapons, biological weapons, and so on. While science has created weapons of war it has also created the means of avoiding to use them known as political science to run international government and relations without ever even going to war or at least avoid using weapons of mass destruction. There are other beneficial fields of science such as medical science that creates treatments and cures for illnesses and trauma. Everything around you is made by science such as the device you are using to view the website; that was created by computer science. Science is far more beneficial than it is harmful to society. Ultimately, it is a question of ethics and responsibility.

  • Science does not help.

    I will skip over the usual arguments of the ill effects of science (WMD namely) because those are irrelevant to the nature of science itself, but only caused by people who use science as a tool for their own putrid ambitions. It is not the fault of science, but the people who misuse it. Why science is not driving humanity forward is because of, simply, the medicine the it produces. The medicine is killing us. Maybe it is karma for the nuclear bomb or man's endeavours and butcherings of nature for the harmless "reasearch" of animals and plants, or maybe it balances out the good science, namely engineering. I personally have seen too many stories of people getting cancer, going to doctors to treat it, and leaving for a few months cancer free before the tumor or the infected cell returns at a deadlier power than before. I don't know if you have hear this metaphor before, but I will explain it to you: There is a house which represents your body. You have a bunch of trash lying at the door. This attracts flies, representative of sicknesses and cancer. This is what doctors do to get rid of the flies; they spray them with a insect killer. Some of the flies die but the rest escape the spray, leaving for a short period of time before returning with reinforcements and at high number and ferocity then before. This is what modern medicine does. The fly example is repeated over and over and over again, every time you see the doctor for some anitbiotics or some pills, Then, it gets to a point where there are so many flies that they have infested you house and with the huge settlement of flies you house eventually crumbles under the weight of the flies.
    That is what happens to your body. The nature of modern medicine is an agressive one, they fault that doctors have missed is identifying the problem. The flies are seen as the problem, when it is actually the trash that they've missed. Take the trash out of your house, there are no more flies.
    Yet, too many are blind to this and that is why the creation of science and therefore of modern medicine harms the people.

Very poorly written question. The answer is both.
