even considering the way it was used, antibiotics, vaccines, and medicine in general have saved more lives than all the wars put together. agriculture technology has allowed us to sustain trillions. these already outweigh its misuse, and that's before we consider all the non life saving ways our lives are improved and enriched.

science in and of itself is information. Harm can only be created through human actions and interferences. with these basic premises science has created information and humans have used such information with both good and bad intents.

and even nuclear weapons, you could make the argument they have saved WAY more lives than they have taken.

if not for nuclear weapons the Soviets and Americans would almost certainly have gone to war killing 10s or even 100s of millions of people. Nuclear weapons have only ever been used in people twice. far more people have died from bombs, rifles or even the Spanish flue outbreak of 1918.

if we are talking about lives, the number of lives taken by nuclear weapons is dwarfed by the lives saved by medicine and vaccinations.

science in itself is nuetral. knowledge can't do anything by itself. it's how we use it that turns events or things into good or bad. we must strive to guide the world to do better so knowledge can be used for the better.

I don't want to say science is bad if I say science is bad then I mean knowledge bad so this going to be wrong. But miss use of scientific knowledge can be bad and we have seen this before and we are seeing it now and this is obvious. Thousands and million of people die in a single day because of Miss use of scientific knowledge. H bomb ,atomic bomb...etc. this are the discovery of scientists. That killed innocent children's and the mothers around the world. Even if we use of scientific knowledge to help our community and world they have their own side effect. our work will never be perfect, bcoz we are not. GOD IS THE ONLY PERFECT!
