There is no doubt that in the future science and technology will create a society that is better functioning, more appealing and more harmonious. There is some evidence that suggests that without science and technology humans will not be able to continue further down the evolutionary track, or prevent at present incurable diseases. However many feel that science and technology will be the downfall of the human race as in the wrong hands, science can become a weapon to reckoned with. This essay will consider how science and technology could be used in the future and whether it will or will not create a brighter and more agreeable future for the human race.
Science and technology will create a society without disease or sickness. This is shown in the movie Gattaca where disease is very rare and almost non-existent. This creates a higher functioning society with less need for government subsidies and compensation. A society without disease is even seen to extent in today’s medicine, with the current leaps in vaccinations. Without these we would have many sick and diseased people throughout the world. This evidence shows that with continued advancements in science and technology a better future will be created for us.
Furthermore without science and technology humans may not be able to advance further down the evolutionary chain. The world is changing (global warming, environmental destruction etc.) and humans will have to adapt to survive these changes, science and technology could do this for us. We see this once again in Gattaca scientists developed a way in which they can eradicate any flaw that would not create optimal function of our bodies. Without the removal of this flaws we may not be able to survive in the more demanding conditions. This could create a brighter future for the human race but could also incite discrimination against any small flaws.
Not only could science and technology create this more pleasant future but it could also create a...
