Quote# 3797

If you add up how many people die from weapons of mass destruction, a gift from science. Or how many people die from perscription drugs, again a gift from science. So who is to say without the contribution of science more people would not live a longer life.

"So who is to say without the contribution of science more people would not live a longer life"

Any of the 245 more infants in every 1000 who make it to their first birthday?

Any of the 22% of gastric cancer sufferers who go on to complete remission through chemotherapy?

Anybody who made it past the historical average life expectancy of 35 years?

Anybody with at least half a brain?

Weapons of Mass Destruction is a terrible thing. Not all inventions are good inventions. Not all inventors are happy with their inventions, look at the Nobel price. But most inventions have helped people, made life easier, and some have saved millions of lives.

More people are helped by prescription drugs than those who die from them, I guess.

And where does science end? The wheel, the knife, the mill, these are things that Knowledge has brought forth, are these bad too?

(Turn your irony meter off)

Not at all; those were obviously simply intelligently designed. Haven't you kept yourself in the loop with Supersport's or Garvan's brilliance?

Aha, so they where just there, presented to man. How could I not have seen that?

Damn, now the irony meter turned on again...

Sure. The "Dark Middle Ages" were just hymn-singing and general goodness with Good Christian Values (TM) without any science to hinder the piety.
