is science helpful to humanity??
shruti pathakis any1 ther..??
Kaustubh KatdareGive us some time, @#-Link-Snipped-# 😀 . Science is just about discovering things that exist and giving them a meaning. It's the application of science that has proved fatal in many cases.
PS: It helps if you could write your own view when starting a new debate.
What do you think?shruti pathakis science helpful to humanity??
Nayan GoenkaWell You created an Account on CE, Started a discussion, typed on your keyboard, sitting in front of computer on your chair and wearing some fancy clothes and sipping coffee from a cup with some fan running overhead to keep everything cool. And that justifies it I guess.
shruti pathak@#-Link-Snipped-# , here i m talking abut science n "humanity" nt abut d development of science..i hope u hv got my pt..
Nayan GoenkaThere is no humanity without science. Without science, we are no better than animals. The term humanity is carved out of a simple concept of a healthy civilization existing in harmony due to proper application of science.
shruti pathakas here i refer humanity to being human n kindness...hence, i think science dont stand anywhere in humanity...although it has effected it badly..we can take the example of generation of nw a days..youths r much more ruined, people nomore talk 2 each other, joint families r decreasing in dis age of technology advancement...evry1 thinks of himself only..
Nayan GoenkaThat is not called humanity according to me. that behaviour is called active social networking or impact on structure of society.
shruti pathak@#-Link-Snipped-# , yes ofcourse science has helped us in our development..i m nt denying dat..but along wid its advancement it kept decreasing humanity..nw a days people r much more independent coz of science...due 2 wch our culture is also affected wch keeps people well behaved n kind...leading 2 many crimes dat r happening..
Nayan GoenkaYou are seeing on Indian prospective only. Look at other countries also. Their culture also. And they won't agree to it. Science has actually shaped their humanity.
It is in India that we have too much socialism in our structure, in western countries they didn't/don't have that much. Science has made them open to manage things in between and schedule visits. We Indians are not adapting to it completely. We have learnt how to harvest boons of science but we have not learnt how to tackle the problems which the same science creates.
Anand TamariyaThe decadance one sees around is not a result of science - it is just a tool; it's a result of absence of Philosophy - the knowledge of what is appropriate for man as Man. Think of monkey wielding an AK-47!!
shruti pathak@#-Link-Snipped-# , i didnt got yr point...can u elaborate..
Is science helpful to humanity? yes, but only as a tool. it causes more harm than good in hand of human without a philosophy( like the monkey in my example)shruti pathak@#-Link-Snipped-# , i didnt got yr point...can u elaborate..
Mrinmoy SwarnakarScience is helpful to humanity as because of science we get aware of things happening around the world and many a times that helps, like at times of calamity like Tsunami help is send not only from government but from private funding.
But every thing have its pros and cons, so does effect of science.
As rightly said by #-Link-Snipped-# AK-47 protects us from outside world when its in hands of a solder and at the same time terrifies us when in hands of terrorists.
shruti pathakhas any1 got sm different point of view..??
varnita jaiswalyes it is very useful mam
Ramani AswathScience is just an organized body of knowledge. It is not an entity that can do good or bad.
It is humanity (some individual humans) that apply science for good or bad.
Medicine that has saved millions of lives and which has extended longevity is science. Chemical and biological warfare, synthetic drugs and other such are the other side of that coin. Agricultural science feeds billions. Pesticides and fertilizers degrading the environment is the reverse of that field.
One can go on and on with other such examples.
Ultimately it boils down to good and bad people. A knife can cut vegetables or kill a fellow being depending on who is wielding it.
Norbert Weiner was a great American mathematician. When the atom bomb was being developed apparent ly some complex maths had to be solved. The concerned people apparently took the problem to Weiner. He looked at it and said that he could not do it. The surprised people asked if he even could not solve it. It seems he said,'I've solved it. I just don't like the answer'.
The problem was solved after much effort and the bomb made.
It is up to each of us how we develop and use science.
shruti pathakvarnita jaiswalyes it is very useful mam
shruti pathakif it is then prove it..
Anoop KumarFirst we need to elaborate Humanity which is being HUMAN- a animal species on earth.So Humanity is only, and all about surviving on earth, to give better live to human and to help to survive future generations.
Humans are using science to give better life and fighting diseases, making life easier and so yes , Science is helping to "Humanity".
Actually, this has nothing to do with science. It happened because of Indian society, which wanted to move forward with backwards mentality. Till today at least half the Indian population thinks better job = more money = better boy/girl for marriage = life jhingalala and this mentality has nothing to do with science. It is primarily responsible for the rat race and selfishness - note also that half the students study "science" without any interest in it, and half of the remaining half "tolerate" science because they want to do "technology" (the two things are different). So, the real reason for that is our society. Put an effort and change yourselves, this will go away.shruti pathakstand anywhere in humanity...although it has effected it badly..we can take the example of generation of nw a days..youths r much more ruined, people nomore talk 2 each other, joint families r decreasing in dis age of technology advancement...evry1 thinks of himself only..
Well behaved and kindness is a matter of upbringing, not that of culture. You will in fact observe that scientifically advanced countries are in general much more open minded, rational and well behaved on average compared to us. Our culture is impeding our progress in science and not the other way around.shruti pathakdue 2 wch our culture is also affected wch keeps people well behaved n kind...leading 2 many crimes dat r happening..
What must be understood very clearly is two things: Engineering is not Science and Technology is neither of the two. The quest for knowledge is the ultimate pursuit of truth. Without science, or technology, or engineering, we would not be having this discussion here today, nor would you live so long to even have these thoughts. It is the knowledge, the human curiosity, that brought us this far and will continue to enrich our minds with new wonders and horrors. 😀
