Why religion should affect scientific progress
Scientific advancements are occurring every second, whether it be a new species
discovered, a new invention made, or breakthrough in medical advancements. However with all
this positivity come many negatives that bring it further away from the church and faith.
Will all these rapid advancements in science it is forcing people to adapt very quickly, In
some cases this can be detrimental. People are losing their jobs to machines and new productivity
methods, specifically the lower class. This is because advancements in machinery and robots is
taking over labour work and basic tasks, the same kind of work that the lower class does right
now, and has been doing for years. From a business standpoint this is great because it will save
money for businesses because they won't need as many workers, and it will raise productivity.
From a morality standpoint this is harmful because it is taking away the jobs of the people that
already aren’t making a lot. This doesn’t leave them many options, although new jobs are created
for working on these machines, robots, etc. These require much more knowledge and skill than
their previous jobs. What most of these new jobs require is a lot of education and most people
cannot just go back to learn new things because that requires a lot of time and money which most
of those people may not have a lot of. For those workers it will cause them a great deal of stress
because they will be unemployed with little to no options. Businesses often don't give workers
alternative options of work and would rather leave them with no job, and no source of income.
This could be easily solved by training workers to perform alternative tasks but it is not that easy
because the new tasks businesses need completed often require a lot of skill that those workers
might not necessarily have.
Another example where science has gone bad is with drugs/narcotics. Drugs have lead to
thousands of deaths caused by overdosing,...
