For a while now, science has been a mystery to man, leading him to want to discover
more and more about it. This in many aspects is dangerous to our society, being that
scientific developments in new studies have been advancing too quickly for our minds to
comprehend. Things such as cloning, organ donation, and pesticides, are things that the
world may sometimes find useful, when in reality, it only brings civilization down.
"Raising science to the status of godhood carries with it inherit risks that demand careful
Developmental experiments such as cloning have been successful, but they bring along
with them some very negative results, for example, in some early experiments in animal
cloning some potential dangers had been encountered, cloned cows developed faulty
immune systems, other projects which created cloned mice, grew obese, and in most
studies, cloned animals seemed to grow old faster and die younger than the usual
members of the species. When adding on to the human race, not only are we increasing
our huge population rate, but we are also adding humans and animals that have defects as
well as a short life span. It would be a waste of our government's money to bring
something to life, that we will have to take extra care of, just to have it die in just a matter
of weeks as quick as a goldfish dies.
When talking about organ donation, people usually think that it is a great
discovery and that scientists have made a break through in this portion of the medical
field, with out knowing how highly the chances of ineffectiveness this procedure has.
"The immune system attacks anything that lacks histocompatibility antigens or has
antigens different from those found in the rest of the body, such as those found on
invading viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms." This recognition system causes the
immune system to attack transplanted tissues that have...
