Science Boon or Bane

Good Essays
We are in the age of science and technology. Man cannot live without the aid of science. Science has so much engulfed our lives that nothing can take place in our day to day work without the help of science. Our food, transport, learning, administration, recreation and social life are all linked with science in various ways.
To answer the question whether science has come to mankind as a boon or as a use for ruin (bane), one should know what science exactly means. Science is said to be a systematic classification of experiences. We, men wonder at the various things and events happening around us. We get doubts; what are they? These questions are the basic seeds for science. Then starts the thinking, reasoning, analysis, synthesis, comparison and contrast and finally the truth emerges.
Scientists say there is a scientific method for everything and there are inevitable steps to be followed: (1) Observation (2) Hypothesis (3) Experiment (4) Theory and (5) Proof. All scientists have, in a way, followed these steps.
The aim of science is search for truth, and to know things, hitherto unknown. A scientist does not accept ideas, simply because, they were accepted by others earlier. Great discoveries are a result of reasoning. A lot of patience and observation are required. Civilization, as it is today, is the result of a number of discoveries made in the field of science. The invention of them simple wheel has resulted in our modern industrialization.
Electricity, as a source of energy, has revolutionized the world. Medical science is so much advanced that the average life of an Indian has risen to 62 years from 35 years. Science has contributed to the success of our green revolution and now we have enough food for all. We have enough clothing and better shelter too. All this is possible, because of science. Radios, T.C s and cinemas which entertain us are the products of science. So a common man has to conclude that science is a boon to mankind.

    From my car, saving me from having to walk long distances, to my microwave that allows me to prepare food quickly, science has made my life easier. I am able to have an indoor job working on a computer because of science. I also get to enjoy year-round air-conditioning and heat. At any given time, I can use a phone to call someone thousands of miles of away, and speak to them just as if they were standing right next to me. Science has given me machinery to automate things, electricity to power all my electrical products, as well as better medicine, and a more evolved understanding of myself and the world I live in. If science did not exist, I would have to do things the long way, and have to do them manually. The world would be a much harder place to live in without the hope of a better tomorrow. And ultimately, that is what science gives me,…

    Science is very useful yo us. It’s discoveries and inventions make our life comfortable in many ways. They have given us better and quicker means of transport. Trains, buses, cars, aeroplanes, helicopters, ships, electric trains and auto-rickshaws help us to move from one place to another very quickly. Before their appearances people move from one place to another mainly on walk. The rich travelled by the coaches drawn by horses and several men rode upon horses, ponies and camels. They also used carts drawn by bulls and jutkas to travel short distances. They took a long time to reach their destinations. But by trains, motor-cars, ships and planes they travel long distances within a few hours or days. They seem to have brought different parts of the world closer to one another. The mariner’s compass and the satellites orbiting the earth help them to know the weather conditions, the approach of a storm or a cyclone and the heavy or moderate rainfall. They are able to warm the fishermen in the time against going to sea when there are symptoms of as storm upon the sea. There are scientific instruments to fathom the depth of the ocean the temperature and the air-pressure at different depths and the various kinds of sea-creatures and sea-plants. This knowledge gives hope to mankind if the earth fails to provide adequate food to humanity they turn to the sea-life for food. In the field of communications, science has given us wonderful aids in the shape of the telephone, the wireless trelegraphy, the radio, the cable and the Television. They help us to communicate with the people who are far away from us. The transport media say, into a small district. Science has enhanced the nature of our entertainments.

    We are living in a world where science is important. Science has helped to find cures for diseases that were hard to treat. For example, many years ago vaccines did not exist to cure tuberculosis. My grandfather died many years ago of tuberculosis. If science had not been improved many people would died today because of the disease. Thanks to science most people do not die of this disease. Also, science and technology have given to the society a better life to live. Technology has created a new style of living with cars, computers and the Internet. I remember when I was little that in my house we did not have telephone, or a car, and I did not have expensive toys to play with. As technology improved, we did get a few things that were in the stores, for example a…

    Is ‘Modern Science’ making the world a better place or is it missing something very essential? It’s a question we often come across and the answer is usually inconclusive or controversial. To answer this question better we need to study the history of science. During my course of study, I got the opportunity to study and analyze the texts of ancient philosophers like Plato and Aristotle, and determine what have we lost and gained during the transition to ‘Modern science’. There is no denying that science has made our lives better and has become an integral and inseparable part of our lives. But, at the same time, I feel like it misses something very important that makes it far from being perfect or a complete boon to humanity.…

    But I would add one more thing about the way science has done us good: it has actually given us the capacity to think like scientists - the hypothetico-deductive method, Occam's razor, Karl Popper's brilliant insight that science progresses by falsifying hypotheses in search of a better one. Without these essential tools for thinking and discovery, we would be vulnerable to any charlatan with a good story to tell - even if it can't be proved. Science is not just a series of discoveries; it is a superordinate process and a glorious manifestation of our humanity.…
