Use and Abuses of Science

Modern science has achieved tremendous achievement during the last few decades. Actually, modern civilization is the gift of modern science. Science has invented many wonders. Day and night, we make use of innumerable inventions of science. But the invention of modern science has not only uses but also abuses. 

The invention of electricity is of great use to us. Now, we can light electric lamps, run fans, televisions, pumps, refrigerators, washing machine, telephone, fax, computer, cinema, etc. very easily. Besides, almost all mills and factories are run by electricity. There are also electric trains, printing presses, cookers, irons, sewing machines, etc. run by electricity. 

The inventions of science have helped to conquer space and time. We can now go from one place to another in a very short time. We can now send messages to a great distance in a second. We can talk to anybody in any part of the world in any time by phone. 

In the field of amusement, the invention of science has brought a revolutionary change. Radio broadcasts songs, music, news, discussion, etc. Nowadays, television telecasts all programmes in digital colour. By fax, any writing or picture can be sent to a great distance very shortly. Internet is yet another wonderful invention of modern science. 

Spinning of yarn, weaving of cloth and sewing of clothes can be done at great speed by using the invention of science. Food-processing, house-building, constructing roads and bridges can be done very quickly. Millions of pages can be printed or reproduced in a short time. A calculator can solve any difficult mathematical problem in no time. 

The invention of science is of great use in the field of medical science that it has discovered the causes of most of the diseases and their remedies. A deadly disease like TB and cancer has been conquered. Cholera has also been brought under control. Smallpox has been eliminated. The X-ray and other diagnostic instruments are also mentionable. 

Science has increased food production greatly. If we can apply the scientific methods properly, there will be no hunger in the world. Tractors, power-pumps, fertilizers, high-yielding varieties of crops and irrigation techniques have revolutionized agriculture. 

But the invention of science is not an unmixed blessing. Science has also invented guns, bombs, atom-bombs and missiles, battleship and fighter plans, chemical and biological weapons and the most destructive nuclear weapons. By abusing these, a powerful country is attaching another weak county to capture its freedom and gain its wealth. 

There are many areas of our everyday life where we depend on science. Though the inventions of science have some abuses, it's blessing to us is very remarkable and undeniable.
