Essay On Science- Boon And Curse

As we know that every coin has two faces, same with science. Good morning to everyone today I Anoohya is here to tell you about the given topic science is a boon or bane. Science” every person has his own thought about it some say it is good while the others say it is bad nothing is good or bad but it depends on the man how he uses it. Can you imagine the world without electricity? Of course not. Inventions are made with the thought of improving men’s life not with the thought of destroying the peace of the man. Science in its is nothing, created by humans, and is used by humans only in any way they want. So, why to criticize science if there is any wrong effect of it? Science not only bane but a boon to whom it is properly used.

For scientist like Edison and Einstein it is a boon. Now-a-days due to wrong usage of science& technology by some youngsters makes parents to think that it is a bane. They think improvement in social and technological development makes their wards to move in wrong path who doesn’t understand even without science their wards may move in the same path. Improvement of science results in development of technology which we need for a sophisticated life. This only helps in this super fast century to make our work easier within the short span of time. Sir Alfred Nobel experimented with dynamite to clear huge mountains to turn it into productive land. But modern man is using it to kill his fellow human beings and destroy nature.

The destructive potential of atomic energy was witnessed in August 1945, when the United States dropped atom booms on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those who survived the nuclear bombing suffered from its aftermath. It is a horrible fact that much of the national income of even a developing country is spent on acquiring latest weapons, bombs and missiles.

Guns, revolvers, tanks and fighter planes, explosives, nuclear bombs etc. Were invented to develop a strong security system to protect the innocent masses, but their misuse is now crushing humanity. Apart from atomic weapons, man has also started stockpiling biological and chemical weapons. These weapons are also extremely dangerous. So, in my view science is always a boon for right people who utilize it properly. Every coin have two sides as science also have two sides based on the person who use it Thank You

We can argue that science is both a boon and a curse for humankind.  I will make both arguments and you can decide which you find more compelling.

You can argue that science is a boon for humankind.  This is because science has improved our lives in many ways.  Perhaps the most obvious of these is the fact that science has allowed us to live longer.  Because of scientific advances, we do not die of infections any more.  Women rarely die in childbirth in advanced countries.  Science has also made our lives easier.  Scientific discoveries have given us airplanes that let us go on vacation, TVs that entertain us, and smart phones that both entertain us and let us communicate with others.  In all of these ways and many more, science has made our lives easier and better.

You can also argue that science is a curse for humankind.  Many scientific discoveries have ended up hurting people or the Earth in various ways.  For example, science allowed us to have cars and electricity, but the fuel we burn to get these things has ended up causing global warming which could have very negative effects in the long term.  Science was also used to invent gunpowder, which has been used to kill millions of people over the years.  Finally, science allowed us to create nuclear weapons, which are a menace to people everywhere.  These facts all make it look like science has been a curse.

Which of these arguments, on balance, makes more sense to you?
