Wonders and Destruction of Science
The wonders and destruction of science, an idea that has been coursing through my mind.
After spending a week living by the visiting hours of the hospital, I quickly, if not undoubtedly, appreciated modern technology. Merlin himself could not have imagined the “magical” forms of medicine that we have today. The ability to save lifes, heal wounds and create better futures is far easier than it has ever been, and it is all thanks to science.
Science, the father of modern day miracles.
Once that week was over, and I returned to my life of normalcy. Before adjustment could even begin, I was diving into a paper on the tensions between Iran and the U.S. Tensions that have been exemplified over nuclear bombs, the Frankenstein of science. And it was while writing this paper that I began thinking about the irony that is science. Could we have the life changing medical advancements, with out the life destruction of nuclear bombs and other weaponry advancements? I personally think not. We can save more lives everyday, but we can also destroy more in a single day than ever before.
