Science doesn't kill people...people kill people.
It is those who use science(same as those using the guise of religion) for slaughtering people are the bad eggs of our society. Science has
contributed so much to mankind's ability to evolve and live in relative comfort.
Yeah some of you may be pessimistic about science, but in all honesty how many of you are willing to give up your refrigerator, insulation and furnace
in your home to keep you warm, your A/C, your shower, your headache pills, your knives and forks, your car, your comfy mattress, your computer, your
cellphone, art, music, etc...
Look at the reality series Survivor. Those folks are only out there for 39 at most, and with the little science and the controlled enviorment knowing
they have medics and such if something wrong goes bad. All of them lose a ton of weight, they become frail the longer they stay out there, and are
usually miserable because they are always sitting on something hard, sleeping in cold down poors of rain, etc...
Some of you say you can live without the everyday stuff science gives us, but I call BS.
Just the internet alone has brought the common people of the world that much closer.
Yeah it sucks that alot of folks in the world are in worse shape then others, but most of that segregation was created by religious prejudices
throughout thousands of years. Science didn't create the divide among cultures, and condemn cultures to a life of poverty and torture, it was
men/women who controlled the science and masses of amount of people who created this division.
The thing that gets me is that people still believe gods told their 'prophets' to go and kill people in the droves because the god was either bored,
wicked, merciful, etc... The people who win wars are the ones who write history, don't you ever forget that. The "Holy" books were written by men,
If everyone in the world was of the same belief with the same scientific technology that we have today, nuclear weapons would not be needed, but
nuclear energy is by far the most economical and clean, renewable energy source we have atm, as long as it is controlled in the right enviorment.
Solar/wind are just expensive and need way too much real estate to be viable. When we are able to make advances and harvest the Helium3 from the Moon,
then we will be in better/safer shape energy wise.
