ADVANTAGES OF SCIENCE
Points: Introduction – Modern civilization – Discovery of Electricity – Shortened the world – Control on disease – Conclusion.
Science is perhaps God's greatest gift to humanity. This is a gift which man has improved upon from the day he received it. And it is a gift which has given man pleasure and happiness from the day he received it and will continue giving him more and more pleasure as long as man does not misuse it.
Who does not know that it is improvement in science only which is responsible for our modern civilization? Only a few hundred years back man lived in ignorance and diseases. Today science has eradicated both. But these are not the only things, it has also increased his speed and made arrangements for his entertainment at home or outside.4essay.Blogspot.com
The discovery of electricity is a wonder. Radio has gone a long way in removing ignorance and overcoming distance. Today we don't have to wait for the news from a distant country or from the different parts of our own country. It is not a matter of hours even. The moment the news is broadcast in London, the next movement we hear them from here. But this is not the only advantage of radio. It provides best and cheapest entertainments also. The work of cinemas and press are also no less important. They have actually revolutionized our life on the earth.
Science has also shortened the world for man. Distance of years has been reduced to days and hours. The invention of train, motor cars, aeroplanes have all helped in increasing the speed of man, and carrying his goods in a much shorter time.4essay.Blogspot.com
However, one of the greatest advantages of science has been man's control on diseases. Today, men need not die in millions unchecked from malaria, cholera, plague and other diseases. Man has discovered a cure to almost every illness to-day. The rate of death has greatly declined.
These are not, however, the only advantages of science. Man has been benefitted from science in every sphere of his activity. He may use it in whatever way he likes. He may use these forces to conquer disease, expand his knowledge, or to increase his speed or he may use it in making bombs and destroy his own beings.
