Is Science a Boon or a Curse?

While science has advanced society and given people many luxuries and better medical treatment, many argue that scientific advancement has brought greater threats like guns and bombs that humans would have been better off never creating. In reality, scientific advancement has brought a lot of good and bad, because people have used new technologies to both help and hurt other humans.

Science gives people the use of electronics, engines, luxuries and connectedness. Because of scientific research, it's possible to understand illnesses and are able to treat and cure diseases. However, many argue that science has brought along more bad than good. For this reason, while science is a boon and can cure diseases and make lives easier, it also is a curse because it has produced weapons and life-threatening machines.
