Some people argue science has proven more a bane than a boon while others argue how it has made our lives easier and brought us out of the Stone Age.Before we begin, we should first take a look at actual meaning of the word "science" so that we can discern the actual meaning because sometimes politicians and corporations mix in an agenda with science. express your views for or against this topic with sturdy reasons.
Today, in the 21st century, science's subtle hand can be found in evidence everywhere.
Every aspect of our modern human existence circles back to science whether we're talking food, recreation or the classroom.
At the time, the Black Plague killed around 450 million people, which historians estimate was between 30 to 60 percent of the population in Europe at the time.
Nowadays, science has addressed these issues with isolating the infected and better knowledge of how diseases work, which became possible through medical science and learning about the problem.
In everyday life, people constantly have to face and fight evil.
Judge for yourself: the coffee is evil, salt (and sugar too) is evil, tobacco smoking (including passive) is evil, alcohol (even light beer) is evil, drugs (without options) is evil. To say nothing about the Internet in general and computers in particular.
For example, when the BP oil spill happened, we wouldn't even be in that mess if it weren't for scientific advances that made those things possible.
To extract the oil from deep sea drilling, for example, we needed a great deal of scientific research involved in how to conduct deep sea drilling.
The vast majority of science is done for science's sake, for the 'advancement' of humanity and therefore on the whole can be thought of as good.
Yes there are bad things that come out of science - take for example nuclear weapons which are something that is pretty obviously on the bane side of this debate but these weapons in and off themselves are not particularly bad (I guess pretty much balance out - boon of employment vs bane of using some resources pointlessly worry of some nuclear waste) rather it is the use of them that is particularly bad.
