Danger of Science

Religion retards the advancement of knowledge by throwing up superstitions to confuse. Science advances knowledge. The problem with science is it often gives us too much knowledge too quickly before we are wise enough to use it. For example, we used the knowledge of engines to pollute the planet and bring on global warming. We used knowledge of logging to destroy the world’s forests. Einstein gave us the atomic bomb and we built a hair-trigger system to wipe out life on earth. Despite the many marvels, science is also giving us the tools to drive ourselves extinct.
