Science and technology have already brought about a huge revolution in our society regarding its norm, customs, traditions, facilities, better life standard and life style. Life is totally different now than it used to be 100 years ago, with non-technological use and advancement. Now a day life has more meaning as it has provided easier and fascinating life standards, but causing some noxious situation and problems as well.
There are number of advantages science and technology brought in the society, as we have more capable, doctor, engineers, architecture, lawyer, and pilots. All deadly diseases like Cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s and Leukemia are curable now. Communication among people has become so convenient due to internet and advanced transportation. Currently, the science is about to bring a great revolution with the blue beam experiment, which will give our life a new direction. The life is so fascinating and luxurious, everyone should have such life with full of enjoyment. We know more about outer space and have better life expectancy than ever before. Epidemic diseases are mostly under control and the nations have better relationship than the past. Seems like this is the best era to be alive and it will not be exaggeration to say that, life in present time has better possibility and meaning than even before.
On the contrary, the science and technology have not merely brought beneficial products and outcomes rather there are many harmful consequences for this advancement as well. First of all the environment is more polluted than ever before due to the usage of machinery, and on the other hand machinery usage is harmful in its use. Secondly, the luxurious and machinery life made the man more isolated, lazy and senseless from society. Thirdly the current social experiment like blue beam experiment will ruin the life as, the people’s religion, faith, and prayers will be directed by science, and such social experiments are under working.
In short science and technology itself not a harmful but its misuse can cause harms in the world. The present era is the blessing of technology and scientific invention and without any doubt is the best time for human to be alive.
