Disadvantages of Science.
There is no doubt that Science has blessed us with a lot of inventions that made our lives considerably easier but there is always two sides of a coin. The invention of atom bombs, hydrogen bombs, magnetic tanks, missiles and long-distance guns are very harmful to mankind. Such inventions pose a great threat of extinction to the mankind. They are a warning to the human species on the earth. Invention of many destructive weapons have increased the Horrors of War.
It will be better for mankind if Science works like a slave for us. The world of artificial intelligence has already started giving us initial warnings by replacing human intelligence. Therefore, we should make our best efforts not make Science our master. Its use should be for the betterment of mankind rather than inventing methods of destruction.
