Science does nothing by itself. It's people who decide to use it for good or evil purposes (mostly, a mixture of both).

You are a crazy hick if you think science is bad. Science is just a process for determining things, what its used for can be good or bad. Science doesn't destroy the world, people destroy the world. If we didn't have guns people would just hit each other with rocks. If we didn't have science you wouldn't be sitting in front of a computer using the internet, watching anime. Not to mention dying at 30 or freezing to death. You would be shaking a stick at the apparently random lights in the sky at night to cure your blindness. Good thing nowadays we understand things like stars and have glasses.

You people are definitely confusing Science and technology, its not like test tubes and beakers jump up and splash acid on people or something...

Science has done both good and bad things; from vaccines to the H-bombs.

If I was a member of the UNO, I'd make some sort of declaration saying that any science discovery used with the intention of doing some sort of damage to the world, humans, environment, animals or any other non dangerous life form, the person (persons) responsible for it, should be condemned to death, just like Saddam Hussein.

Well, science brought us today's world, but will it destroy tomorrow's?
Science led to global warming [indirectly in a way], and is now trying to stop global warming [in a way].
Medicine is prolonging the lives of thousands... and now this small earth is being overpopulated by masses of humans that are on pretty much every piece of land in this world. I'm not saying that medicine is "bad" because it's saving lives, but the human population... is rising to epic numbers. Although without medicine, many would've died by now.
Do you think the end of mankind / world will be because of science? Or do you think science is saving the world from earlier destruction?
Let's hear ye thoughts~


Science is power it could be good and bad, all depends of who is using it. for example a knife in a doctor's hands means salvation but a knife in a killer's hands would mean dead...

over all its for good
without science we'd be helpless and ignorant if anything beyond our control were to happen

hey ! if the world is going to get fucked up we should be the ones to do it

plus take science out of the equation and u we'll all be taken over by religious fanatics and their Jihads and Crusades
