can i get an essay on the topic 'science is a boon not a curse'..........plz answer me as soon as u can?
You may refer to the answers given by your friends above. I'm sure you will be able to produce something original and innovative.
Science is boon as well as bane.without Science we can't imagine nowadays.The highest invention of human till now is developing human parts using stem cells.If this Research has been succeded means we can create allkind of human parts.And lot of useful things were invented.At earlier stages people thought thy can't fly.Wright brothers invented flight.Many things which did nt imagine all achieved through Science.
In everything in the life whatever we see that hav twosides.Like that science hav some destroying power.vehiles which producing lot of green-effect gases.This ll surely going to destroy our future generation.v need to avoid this kind of things.
Science is nothing but application of human thoughts to satisfy his needs . After the advent of Industrial Revolution (in Europe) in the 18th century , there has been a tremendous advancement in the field of Science and Technology . Because of science , man is leading a comfortable and luxurious life. He is even able to create many wonders and of course another man too !
May be God in the heaven says , "Oh Intelligent Human ! Don't get fascinated . I am only a creator. But you , are not only a creator , but also a destroyer."
Yes, humans have just gone mad and are damaging the nature of earth , in the name of scientific development. They are relentlessly chopping down trees , persistently extracting the fossil fuels and bringing many flora & fauna into the danger of extinction . Wars had created a lot of mess and fuss . From the stone age to the present rocket age , battles had been polluting the basic eminities of life such as air , water and land.
we can't blame science . We should blame ourselves . Man has to give up his greed & dominance . Development is necessary , but it should proceed in a controlled manner as to protect our mother Earth . Science is not a boon or bane , it depends on how we understand and utilize it.
Let's protect our green planet . Follow sustainable Development & make this world a beautiful place to live in for the future generations .
Hope for the best .......
Science is a boon and a bane based on how we make use of it. In olden days it used to be very difficult for people to communicate through letters but now we have many sorts of ways such as e-mails, mobiles, etc. In this way one can say science is a boon but what's the use. In olden days there used to be a habit of writing letters which improves one's writing and literary skills but what's the use of talking rubbish for hours and hours on chat or mobiles ?It's utter waste of time. In this way we can always find defects in each and everything we discover in our lives. So stop questioning and use science and technology in a much useful and careful way.Science may have paved the way to destruction. Our mankind has also lost many lives just by the development of science. But just think of it's strength. Without science we are nothing. The building you are in, the chair you sit, the shirt you wear, the shoes you use are all made up of science.
It made our lives far easy and comfortable. Can we bear a 5 minutes power loss now.? Not at all..
Its just like a fire. We can make food with that. Or can burn the house..May be God in the heaven says , "Oh Intelligent Human ! Don't get fascinated . I am only a creator. But you , are not only a creator , but also a destroyer." So it is a boon as well as curse.
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.
There is the other side of the coin also. T.L. Peacock says; I almost think that it is the ultimate destiny of science to exterminate the human race. That is the other point of view. It is science, which gave birth to destructive weapons like dynamite, guns, rifles, rockets, atom bombs, hydrogen bombs etc. it is science that gave electrical power and nuclear power. If nuclear power is used for peaceful purposes, there is no need for fear. But after all it is human to err. Can anyone say that there is no chance of the destruction of a Hiroshima or a Nagasaki being repeated? If that happens, will not science be a bane of humanity?
Leaving that apart, another creation of science is pollution of the environment. Industrialization with the aid of science has polluted air, water, food and the atmosphere. The ozone layer is giving threatening signals. So here is a case for man to consider science as a cause of ruin.
Man is a rational being. He can safeguard himself against all odds. That is how he was able to conquer and control all other creatures in the world. So let us believe that his wisdom will prevail and he would reason out for the well being of his kind on this planet.
When the universe reveals more secrets to man by means of science, there is hope that the present man will become a superman and eventually science would be only a boon and not a bane of his life. Science without conscience is death of the soul.
Everything in the universe has its uses and abuses. The same applies to science. Science has revolutionized the human existence. It has made man's life happier and more comfortable.
Electricity is one of the greatest wonders of modern science. The growth of fast modes of transport and communication has changed the world into global village. In the field of agriculture, science has helped in increasing the crop production and improving quality. Science has enabled man to diagnose and treat many dangerous diseases. Information technology and computers have revolutionized our life-styles. But, the boon of science, in many cases, has been turned into bane because of its misuse. Science has posed a threat to the very existence of mankind with weapons-nuclear, biological, atomic, chemical etc. Cyber crime is the latest addition to crimes' list. Misapplication of science has brought mankind to the path of destruction. We should use science to get its blessings and not misuse it to make it a curse.
Science has revolutionized the human existence. Much of the progress that mankind has made in different fields right from the stone age to the modern age is due to the progress made in the field of science. Not only material progress but also the mental outlook of man has been influenced by it. It has made man's life happier and more comfortable. Agriculture, business, transport, communication and medicine to name a few are all highly indebted to the wonders, science has produced. We have become scientifically more advanced from our ancestors. This is because the world has undergone a tremendous change because of the rapid strides made by the science and technology.
Electricity is one of the greatest wonders of modern science. It is a source of energy. It can run any type of machinery. With the help of electricity, we can light our rooms, run buses and trains, and lift water for irrigation.
The discovery and development of a large number of powerful energy sources-coal, petroleum, natural gas, electricity etc. have enabled humanity to conquer the barriers of nature. All this has facilitated the growth of fast modes of transport and communication, which in turn has changed the world into a global village. Science has given man the means of traveling-cars, trains, aero-planes, ships etc. man has even traveled to the moon.
Science is a help in the agriculture field too. The food production levels and quality have improved by multiple factors. Soil analysis, hybrid varieties of crops giving higher yield, fertilizers, pesticides, advanced tools and machinery, irrigation equipments, etc. have increased the production of crops.
Today, we have scores of meteorological satellites in outer space sending data, pictures to earth stations helping agriculture scientists find and analyze soil patterns. They also help them trace progress of rains, winds and even locusts that endanger crops.
Satellites even forewarn about natural calamities, like hurricanes which cause mass destruction. Science has enabled man to diagnose and treat many dangerous diseases. Open heart surgeries, organ transplants etc. have all become possible. A number of killer diseases are now curable. Diseases such as smallpox, polio, plague, malaria etc. have now almost been eradicated. Hidden diseases in the body can be diagnosed easily with the help of X-rays. Scientists have succeeded in cloning animals. The methods of diagnosis, prevention and treatment have developed with a rapid speed. As a result of this much progress in medical science, man finds himself more safe, secure and his average age has lengthened.
Man, with the help of science, has been able to increase longevity, arrest the gradual decay of human body and control the spread of lethal diseases by making extraordinary life prolonging drugs and medicines. Science has provided us with many means of education and entertainment. The television, video, radio, computer, internet etc. have enabled the human race to enrich its knowledge about various places, persons, birds, animals etc.
Information technology and computers have revolutionized our life-styles. Automation in banks and railway stations have provided relief to the public and staff alike. Ticketing and reservation have become more efficient and convenient. In medical diagnosis, computers are being used to locate and investigate accurately and precisely any abnormalities or diseases. Internet has some very useful applications in our day-to-day life. Mobile phones are outcome of information technology. But at the same time it cannot be denied that the boon in many cases, has turned to be bane. There are innumerous examples which prove that science-a blessing has been turned into a curse.
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.
Biotechnology is a great boon for fighting the diseases. But along with medicines lethal biological weapons have also been developed. Germs are deliberately released into the air to spread diseases. Anthrax envelopes are used for spreading terrorism.
The negative effects of the excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides, used to increase yield, are now evident. soil salinity has increased. Traces of DDT are found in plants.
Establishment and expansion of factories has resulted in all round pollution. Motor vehicles emit a lot of poisonous material into the atmosphere. This has led to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming.
Television, a good source of entertainment, education and information, has its negative effects too. There are many programmes which promote violence and vulgarity, and teenagers are more interested in watching these programmes. Aggressiveness and violence at an early age have lead to shocking crimes. Sometimes, even the nature people learn and apply different methods of crime by watching serials and movies.
The power of the internet is being abused by the widespread use of pornographic material. Lots of people spend their time in chat rooms for obscene discussions.
Science has two faces-good and bad. It depends on us which face we want to see. If we use the gifts of science in positive direction with positive intention then it will provide us with sweet results but if we use it in the wrong way the results will definitely be bitter. To save ourselves and the world as a whole from destruction, we should follow the right way to use the gifts of science so that it appears as a blessing and not as a curse.
