Science: Beneficial or Threat to Humanity?

ON THE DAWN OF THE 21ST CENTURY, science has transcended the boarders of human understanding and expanded our knowledge of the things that were once unknown, making everything easier, faster, lighter and better. Scientific studies about human have given a huge progress for Medicine and Surgery; diseases that were once incurable are now easily cured, and even changing parts of our body is made possible. The modern facilities of communication have made contact between people who are miles apart be easily patched within seconds.
             The mechanization of Agriculture and Industry had made production easier, faster, and more comfortable. Modern transportation has made the world closer, nearer and reachable. From the burst of the engine we find ourselves easily getting to our destination at ease, not to mention the entertainment we have while we are on our way. The raw power gathered from the earth are now used to make the machines function.
             On the other hand, we should never forget science’s most powerful and feared arsenals; the Atomic, Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear weapons. These weapons of mass destruction that are still idly waiting to be used will one day easily destroy everything and anything in the biosphere, including us. Yes, science may have had shown capabilities of healing and creating but equally evident is its capacity for mass killing and destroying. For now we are safe, but for how long?
