Has man’s curiosity and creation harmed or helped mankind?
Man has had a curious nature throughout their existence on this planet. We are a very inquisitive species that always wants to know more, do more, experience more. And that shows through our achievements throughout history, whether they be good or bad. To say that our curiosity has helped mankind is an understatement. We have cured diseases and created countless things in the name of science and technology. But where there is good there is also bad. We the people of the human race have created a lot of harmful substances and objects that bring harm to our fellow homo sapiens. So to say we haven’t done our fair share of harm along with our share of good would be wrong. We sometimes do more harm than good and vice versa. But to be blunt we have on a mixed share.
First off I don’t believe we have done so much of one thing that we can be classified as bringing total harm to mankind or bringing total salvation. We are in a more neutral area. But we have done many great things due to our curious nature. The most amazing thing to me is that we are able to create human life from a test tube. That’s a very amazing feat. And were able to create cellphones that do so much, they can call, text, go on the internet, the list goes on and on. Soon I think they will be able to fly us to different places and make us a four course meal on the way. And that’s just with a phone. We were able to send a man to the moon and create a cure for diseases. We have found new resources and created new forms of energy and our society has grown because of it. But where we have done good and helped mankind we have hurt ourselves also.
To say we haven’t screwed ourselves over on a few occasions is an understatement. Yes, the human curiosity is a boundless imagination that always seeks to better mankind but that has not always been the case. Back in WWII we learned that we could split an atom. Cool right? Then WWII broke...
