Science is one of the great variety of spheres in which people are involved every day. Everything that we do, see and feel can be explained scientifically. Medicine, geology, biology, history, and so on. But we also know that everyday experiments are done with the help of animals which are being killed, a weapon that kills people and many other terrible things are done and produced with the help of science.
But to what degree do we see science as a force for good? Can we say that any scientist and science that is aimed at human prosperity has the right to be called good? Because sometimes it is not so clear, the topic can be debatable, as with nuclear energy. From one point of view, a nuclear weapon (bombs) is one of the most dangerous and blasting nukes, but on the other hand, nuclear energy is one of the purest and produces much more electricity than all the other ways of producing electricity.
Science helps people to discover and explore, to live and prosper, to do unbelievable things. The progress is what I think science can be called. In vitro fertilization, penicillin, radiation and an x-ray, automobile, artificial parts of the body, transplantation, plastic surgery, and a lot of more. Take, for example, Maurice Hilleman, an American microbiologist who devoted his life to vaccinology. All in all, he invented more than 40 vaccines against measles, chickenpox, meningitis, mumps, and so on. Hilleman’s vaccines save people around the globe every day, and many modern vaccinologists continue to improve them or produce new ones.
So it is up to everybody to decide how to regard science, which can be either used for good or bad purposes. One invention or discovery can save humanity and also destroy it. It depends on us what to do with the knowledge we acquire.
