SCIENCE made a life easier but although it has many advantages it has disadvantages also. It means a knowledge. Now a days it is very useful for daily life. The invention of rockets made to explore the world. Without science life is not so easy and no one used their brains. There are many inventions and also discoveries that led the world change. Science made everything possible.

Science has adversely as well as positively affected our life. One of the most important drawback of science is the creation of bombs especially the nuclear bombs have lead to the growth of increased number of wars as they have the technology through which they find an easier way to fight with one another. On the other hand positive effect of science has lead to a great advancement in the sphere of education which led to birth of new instruments in education like smart classes that is the visual as well as interactive learning which has helped the to develop a new level of thinking. There are many inventions in science it purely depends on the human brain how to make use of this gift of machines and inventions whether as a boon or a curse.

Actually Science is making all the people lazy because of some electronic machines. Science is a boon but because of some people it turns into a bane. There are lots of ways to cure everything but there is no specific way to cure cancer, tuberculosis etc. So its a kind request to my dear friends. Please don't make the boon to bane.

Every thing in this world will have both the negative and positive shades. In the same way science may be boon or bane to the present world. It depends on the human how he invented and using it. If we use it in proper way it is a boon to us. Otherwise it is bane. Now a days climate is uneven due to the human only. In other case he is leading good and luxurious life. So it the matter of human how they invent things without disturbing environment.

In my point of view, science and its advancement is a boon to us. Science had changed our lifestyle, educational status, knowledge to a better and standard level. The new inventions and equipments are the children of science. Neglecting the negative sides of science, science is a boon to us gifted by mankind.

Today our life is like a machine. We will run for our needs so to relax or remove the burden of our life science is very important to us. In ancient days the life we live is totally different from today. For example there is need for accountant in olden days now we need computer skilled person. In my opinion science is a boon to us.

Hi this is Aishwarya.

According to all of us science is a major part of our life. Like any part our body. If any part our body is removed we cannot survive without it. Like that only we cannot live without science in our life. Everyone blames science but I blame human beings for misusing the beautiful creation of science. Just for example take, our knowledge it comes from various books and internet that science has provided us.

Today we are debating on this topic because of knowledge that we have got from science. Only and only because of science we have developed in our day to day life. Science is a boon or bane, it only depends on our thinking and on how we make use of science. Creations of science are only for our convenience and for our development. The only thing is that we should not misuse it and harm anyone. And at last thinking and view is all that matters.

And according to me science is boon for me.

In my point of view, science is always a boon. Today we are enjoying our luxurious life only because of scientific inventions and technology. We can't say it as a bane. Science or scientific inventions are the innovative ideas of our man power. It is only meant for good and constructive purpose. But there is a fault in the human's mind which make them.

To use it for destructive purpose. It doesn't matter what the advancement of science, it is a matter of human to approach it in positive way.

Each and every thing on this universe has two sides like that of a coin. Some may abuse it but some may make and try to make a better use of it. No doubt, science and technology makes our life easier and more active but, today, mans enormous schedule may make science a curse as well as a boon to human life. Today's generation has a very bad impression towards exercising and playing as well. This makes our life dull.

Science has risen up many inventions like computers, which nowadays are used for bad and destructive purposes. If you think good, science was, is and always will be a blessing. But if you think in a destructive and cruel way it will always be a curse. Well, it is said where there is a will, there is a way. Thinking is all that matters.

See for example, take atom bombs, they can be used to blast big. Big. Mountains and hence we can get minerals, gold, steel from underground but mostly now-a-days they are used for killing lot of people at a time. Like so taking any scientific invention we have many uses to use them in proper and usuable way. Because of number of scientific inventions we are now living with all needs.

I Think Science is a curse because.

The Industrial Revolution created conditions where people in the country went to industrial areas to manufacture things in factories. Factories and the increased use of Technology led to pollution of the environment, and contributed to global warming. Families and the social support networks that we used to have became splintered and communities suffered socially. Health advances in pharmaceuticals etc.

Have helped people but at the expense of ethical judgments by using animals in testing. Also, we have an aging population as health improvements increase but are left with increasingly stretched health resources to accommodate diseases such as age-related dementia's, etc. Also, we are spending more time being sedentary at our PCs networking and using social technology when we could be exercising, therefore increasing our risk of ill health!

Science will be boon to those who uses it in the perfect way but it will be bane who doesn't. We can't expect the present day life without science and its inventions. It had made our life easier and made us lazy too. We are depending too much on the latest inventions as a result we are facing many problems. We are not even giving importance to the human but we will give a lot of importance to the things of science. As a result of the developing science, we are facing a threat to the world. We ourselves trying to destruct the earth and the human race even. Science should be used in a proper way such that no harm should be done to the human race.

Scientific discoveries and invention has made the life of men easier and smoother in the earlier day. Men had to undertake very hard job as scientific very devices and technical know how was not available. Besides hand work the process of production was very slow. Thus, most of the wants of men remain unfilled.

With the passage of time education and knowledge developed Men concentrated more and more on the study and application of the know now of science. Emphasis was laid on the study of science. Rigorous study and research of science resulted in numerous scientific inventions that resulted in the application of scientific method.

Science has completely revolutionized the way we interact with the world around us. It has made us more efficient, given us longer life expectancies and has in general improved the overall quality of our life.

That being said, every good tool makes for an equally good weapon; it all depends on the scope of its use. Science is no different; in the right hands it is a boon, in the wrong hands a bane. Science will play a critical role as we move into the future, however whether this role is a positive or negative one hinges on the fact that since it is such a powerful entity it can be both a potent tool and an equally potent weapon.

However, science is giving a best result in our routine life from science we got so many technologies and from technology we are reducing our loses and we are saving money.

But it is also bane as every coin has two sides, science which has bestowed us with development has also brandished us with destruction. Science has lead to the creation of nuclear and atomic energy.

Science is a boon for us. It is a step towards mankind. It has changed our daily life. Nowadays, we are totally dependent on science, its technologies and inventions from start of the day till end. If we imagine our life without science, it is like missing something. It is a revolutionary change. It has made our life easier, more joyful. Its interesting inventions sometimes surprise us and force to think it can also possible. Science is everywhere and serves as a mankind.

As every coin has two sides, Science is not only a boon but also a bane. But only the human being is responsible for this. As science is the result of thinking, and reasoning, it is the human mind which use it in a harmful manner. Most of the inventions which lead to destruction may also use for construction.

So it is better to use science for mankind instead of ruin.

The wondrous advancement of science in different spheres has completely changed the pace of living of present society.

If we think about people living on earth in ancient times then we come to know that how struggle their life is. But we all are gifted by science with a lot of things. But it depends upon us that how we use them. Science has provided us with many resources which are being helpful for us and new generation in future. But that resources have being exploited by some people day by day. We have to use that resources with great care and utilize them properly. Due to it's inventions and work for humanity it would we call as [boon].

Well, in my point of view science itself a boon for us, because from morning to bed we need science at everywhere. Science has its impact in all aspects of human civilization. Today its really tough rather not possible to live without tv, computer, internet, mobiles and so on. These inventions and discoveries make our life more comfortable.

But it is humans irrational thoughts turn the gifts of science into banes. When we regenerate energy from natural resources like wind, sun, water and other non biodegradable substances we feel proud but when the consequences lie ozone layer depletion, radioactive radiation make us afraid. So at first we need to restrict our greedy thoughts which may lead to destruction of our planet. If we are able to do that then science will remain as a boon always for mankind.

It is a mixed blessing, It has made our life peaceful and comfortable but in other hand it is filled with fears and tears.

It is a creator because it make our life comfortable. Right from birth to death we use science. It make our ideas realistic and flexible.

It is a destroyer because it is only reason for pollution in environment and because of this all natural disaster is taking place.

So, At last I want to say that we should make the science as our servant not our master.

Hai friends.

Our topic is science is boon or bane. It is depends on how to use this science from ourselves. From my point if view every coin has two sides like that this science also consist advantages and disadvantages. But it has more advantages than the disadvantages. Science is boon. Because of with out science we can't live. From this science we learn more. Ie technology, electricity, medicines. It is bane also. Because nuclear found from the science. It is useful but very dangerous.

Science has revolutionized the world with all its inventions and discoveries. We cannot imagine a world without electricity, cars, mobiles, internet and the list goes on. Because of science have been able to use our natural resources properly such that solar energy can be utilized for various purposes, wind energy can be utilized for making electricity, we can now purify the water of drains and use it for purposes like drinking, bathing etc. And science is the only thing which has told us more about the world in which we live.

Science is not only technology science is the way we make our lives better. Science is not to blame for world problems. Everybody must know how to properly use the gifts science has given us but if people continue to misuse it then the problems of the world will continue to grow and everyone will pay the price for it.

A coin has two phases like that only the matter of science. It can be boon or a bane. It is related to the user. If he uses it well then it is boob and if he uses it in the wrong way it is a bane only. Even if we use it correctly science can prove to be a bane because through scientific activities lot of wastes are released that is very difficult to reuse or recycle it. For example if we take plastics only grade 1 and grade 2 are easy to recycle.

Definitely it is bane. If we consider natural disaster as bane, science is also bane. Science is curse to birds, humans, and to hole environment. If we consider hacking (using it in wrong way) is crime, we should consider the science also as a crime.

Because hacking means getting the brief knowledge about the resource and using them for their own requirements means abusing. Science is also just similar to hacking. Humans getting the brief knowledge about the all resources on the earth, and abusing them for own requirements. It leads to disasters. So it is bane for all the organisms on earth.

As the given topic is science is boon or bane. I can say it depend upon people in what way they use the science. We can take many example like in olden days if we wanted to travel or when we had to visit any place or any message we had to conve it was taking a day, a month, sometime a year also but now a days due to science it is possible only in second or maximum in a day. If you take in the field of medical science, in olden days anybody was suffering with any disease either they could recover with Ayurveda treatment or depends on a god blessing but now a days for every disease a special instruments, equipment is present to handle the disease like ECG, dialysis.

Science may be called a mixed blessing. It has made our life peaceful and comfortable. But it has also filled it with fears and tears. The invention of the wheel, electricity and wonder drug, penicillin has revolutionized human life. Now our life has become safer, easier and more comfortable than that of our ancestors who lived in precarious conditions. Stifling heat of the sun, wrath of natural calamities, bloody jaws of the fatal diseases and the ghastly face of famines were the constant threat to the very survival of our forefathers. But now we have conquered time and space and have tamed all the forces of nature. We have, in fact, risen from the lowest position of cavemen to the highest position of spacemen. Only one hundred years ago, man's life was most uncertain.

Diseases like malaria, cholera, measles, typhoid and smallpox that are no more considered fatal were considered a sure call from death. Now by using different scientific methods, we have solved such problems as the causes of diseases and its prevention. Life-saving drugs and the invention of different operating theatre equipments have brought many patients back from the jaws of death to the lap of life. Science has also done a lot to clean, beautify and illuminate our houses and cities. Our city streets are paved, illuminated and well drained. We have water supply system that provides clean water for household use. The dirty water is carried through sealed pipes to disposal plants. Iron, steel, aluminium and even glass can be moulded and given different shapes to suit our need and taste. In our houses we have refrigerators to keep our food fresh for months, air conditioners and heaters to change climate according to our choice and many other machines that cook our food, clean our houses, and wash our clothes. Science has also improved our means of communication, entertainment and transportation, Aeroplanes, ships, trains, buses, cars and cycles have shortened the distances. On our TV sets we can watch a cricket match being played thousands of miles away from our home.

Similarly telephone, camera, VCR and tape recorder have brought the voices and faces of our near and dear. Once close to us. The dish antenna has brought the people of different castes, creeds, colours and countries so close to one another that a global village is in the making in which all differences of cultures, customs, languages and social manners will die their natural death. The most important effect of scientific inventions and investigations is on human mind and manners. Now we have become more critical and realistic in our attitudes and aptitudes than our ancestors. Mysterious happening and supernatural events do not attract our attention. We believe only such things as are based on facts. So superstitions are losing ground and blind faith is being discarded. But this is only the bright side of the picture.

We cannot ignore the dark and dismal aspects of science and forget that sometimes it appears "red in tooth and claw" destroying human life and civilization. Man's urge for authority and his desire to gain control over his fellow men have compelled him to turn this boon into a bane. He has invented disastrous war weapons that can annihilate the whole world in no time. A number of scientific that can be used to ameliorate the lot of the lots of naked, hungry and homeless people are begin used to multiply their miseries and misfortunes.

"Science is boon or bane" it is too difficult to say because all world depends on science and we cannot imagine live without science. Science has spreaded his feet in every domain. But We are also know that every product of science has side effect like when we take medicine to get relief instantly by this you will have to face a new problem in future as it's side effect. Where as anybody can do his work easily by using science, in other words science makes our life easy, but what about those people they got unemployed by the science created machineries.

I am totally not oppose to science but the side effects that created by science products for example, air pollution it makes the hole of ozone wide day by day. Science does not have any proper solution of that.

Now we feel that it is boon for us. May be it bane for us in future.

Science is not a sacred cow. Science is a horse. Don't worship it. Feed it.

According to me, science is a bane for as due to the technology mankind is becoming more and more lazy and are badly dependent on technology. There are at least two levels on which science could be considered a bane. The first is the invention of things that have had a deleterious effect on the world such as weapons of mass destruction or toxic wastes that can poison inhabitants for years. The second major group for whom science is a bane are the deeply religious who prefer to use scripture and other man-made material to explain human existence and human destiny. Science is their enemy since it has explained a lot of the mysteries that plagued early humans and in doing that has neutralized much of the power that the clergy has held over believers.

We are in the age of science and technology. Man cannot live without the aid of science. Science has so much engulfed our lives that nothing can take place in our day to day work without the help of science. Our food, transport, learning, administration, recreation and social life are all linked with science in various ways.

To answer the question whether science has come to mankind as a boon or as a use for ruin (bane) ,one should know what science exactly means. Science is said to be a systematic classification of experiences. We, men wonder at the various things and events happening around us. We get doubts; what are they? These questions are the basic seeds for science. Then starts the thinking, reasoning, analysis, synthesis, comparison and contrast and finally the truth emerges.

Scientists say there is a scientific method for everything and there are inevitable steps to be followed: (1) Observation (2) Hypothesis (3) Experiment (4) Theory and (5) Proof. All scientists have, in a way, followed these steps.

The aim of science is search for truth, and to know things, hitherto unknown. A scientist does not accept ideas, simply because, they were accepted by others earlier. Great discoveries are a result of reasoning. A lot of patience and observation are required. Civilization, as it is today, is the result of a number of discoveries made in the field of science. The invention of them simple wheel has resulted in our modern industrialization.

Electricity, as a source of energy, has revolutionized the world. Medical science is so much advanced that the average life of an Indian has risen to 62 years from 35 years. Science has contributed to the success of our green revolution and now we have enough food for all. We have enough clothing and better shelter too. All this is possible, because of science. Radios, T.C s and cinemas which entertain us are the products of science. So a common man has to conclude that science is a boon to mankind.

There is the other side of the coin also. T.L. Peacock says; "I almost think that it is the ultimate destiny of science to exterminate the human race". That is the other point of view. It is science, which gave birth to destructive weapons like dynamite, guns, rifles, rockets, atom bombs, hydrogen bombs etc. It is science that gave electrical power and nuclear power. If nuclear power is used for peaceful purposes, there is no need for fear. But after all it is human to err. Can anyone say that there is no chance of the destruction of a Hiroshima or a Nagasaki being repeated? If that happens, will not science be a bane of humanity?

Science is a creator because it makes our life comfortable. Right from birth to death we use science. It makes our ideas to be realistic and flexible. Science brought about change of attitude in life. For eg: in the electronic invention we say that dazzling electric lamp illuminate our houses, electric trains makes our journey faster, and also rockets and satellite zoom in to space. So, science should couple with moral, it should be our servant not our master. Finally science is a creator if we use in a right way.

According to me, we can say that science is the systematic knowledge so science is also boon because without science we can not imagine a healthy world. Science is also boon for human life because sciences provides new knowledge to the people. If we would like that so than we can achieve control on the bane by the science (boon).

We can take advantage of the science in anytime and everywhere but some short time science may be bane.

Science can assume and fascinate us all but science is truth is beauty is God.

Overall it can be concluded and we can say that science have take many advantages and few limitations in the world.

Science is always a bane. Tell me of one thing which was created by science and does not lead to pollution or waste. I am talking about modern day science. Science can also be looked from a perspective of life which is quite different from the modern day science. Starting from radio waves, pens, chocolates, books, fruits and vegetables wherever science entered it only created huge non biodegradable and indigestible waste. Science has preserved diseases in the form of vaccines.

Science has given birth to more powerful and indestructible viruses and diseases. Even the computers as long as you use its OK once they need to be discarded they are non biodegradable waste which is dumped in third world countries. Many inventions of science have led to vulgarity, lack of knowledge and what all nonsense that could be spread at the cost of nothing. Science has created enough weapons to destroy the whole human race a million times. Then what for science is good. Think on it.

Every coin has two phases. The same science which has been of such great assistance to mankind has another face. Science which has bestowed us with development, progress, expansion and growth has also brandished us with hostilities, destruction, violence, ruin, devastation, annihilation bloodshed, carnage and obliteration.

Gone are the days when peace and tranquility used to prevail throughout the world. Today a gun booms in one corner of the world or another everyday. Wars are fought between countries for years and years together at a stretch. Families are torn apart and friends are lost forever, never to be reunited. By giving birth to weaponry, Warcraft and armaments it can be indisputably said that science is the root of battles, armed conflicts and international disputes. Thanks to science we are plunging headlong into an era of nuclear wars.

Due to the advent of science the longevity of life has greatly increased. But, this is paving the way for over-population and population explosion. This has resulted in mass deficiency of land. Today, due to this we are even auctioning of land on the moon!

Thus, I have illustrated some of science's advantages and disadvantages. But can we really blame science when it comes to the disadvantages? I believe that the culpability lies with those who misuse science. The radar of blameworthiness, in my opinion, should never fall on science. Hence I can state indubitably that science is a great boon for humankind, but when it is misused it can prove to be the most worst of banes.

The exploitation of science can result in several disastrous consequences like nuclear wars, catastrophic pollution and ruinous bloodshed.

It is only due to science that we stand where we are today.

Due to the advent of science the longevity of life has greatly increased. But, this is paving the way for over-population and population explosion. This has resulted in mass deficiency of land. Today, due to this we are even auctioning of land on the moon!

Machine guns, shells, submarines, the atom and hydrogen bombs can destroy the world in the twinkling of an eye. Aero-planes in war act as engines of mass destruction. Not only in times of war but in times of peace also man lives in the midst of disease. Though cures are being invented diseases are multiplying too. If the former is in arithmetic progression, the latter is in geometric progression. That is why peace lovers blame science as a curse.

Some years after end of honey bee is certain whole human life will also finish. Animals get problems in taking breathe due to harmful gases being produced from industries and factories depend on science and technology.

Science according to me is definitely a boon.

One argument people use to against this is that Science is a threat to human life in many ways which I completely agree but I would say take me to the stone age and I would show how people can kill with stones and sticks. This more of a philosophical topic.

Science does have its advantages and disadvantages but if we weigh them the advantages are clearly more.

Take dynamite for example it was one of the most useful things ever invented but it was also a deadly weapon in bad hands but clearly the amount people profited was tremendously greater than the incidents which killed people (which are of course bad).

So this is completely dependent on the owner of that piece of science and how they use.

Above was one part about individual use.

Now if we take the whole world combined everyone is contributing to pollution let it be vehicles or sprays or plastic etc any other harmful substance. These should be taken care of or it is threating to coming generations to come (already affecting this gen).

My conclusion science definitely wins and but it should be used in rightful manner and efficiently without harming individuals or nature.

Without having a internet, TV, etc. , we can't imagine our lives and the advantageous medicines and transporting, machines etc are the technology invented to reduce the human work.

Science was meant to be a good servant but has now turned out to be a bad master.

Science as Curse:

1. Due to various scientific inventions, the jungle tracts has been destroyed thus creating harm to the ecological balance.

2. Today though the vehicles have reduced the distance for us, the pollution it causes cannot be overlooked.

3. Has lessened the amount of physical exercises there by increasing several ailments and posture diseases.

4. Many lost their lives in the leakage of chernobyl Nuclear power plant and due to the Methyl Iso cyanate (MIC) gas leakage in Bhopal a few years back. This was due to the so called scientic advancements. This is because of human failure to anticipate the Disasters.

Science as Boon:

One cannot regret the fact that science has done many good to humans.

1. One can compare the advancement of the nation to that of civilization. A civilized nation is one which has achieved scientific progress.

2. Fast means of transport like aeroplane, and other vehicles have made the world a global village.

3. Telephone, TV, satellite, Internet have made it possible to get the latest information.

4. It has given us new medicines to fight diseases.

5. It has revolutionized our education system.

Thus Science becomes a boon or a curse which depends on how we use it.

Hi friends,

According to my point of view, science is both boon as well as a bane. For example, cell phone can connects people from nook and corner of the world. But the same cell can become a hell if we misuse or overuse.

Development in medical field is marvelous. Without dropping a blood, the doctors able to do surgeries. Plastic surgery plays an important role in the field of surgery. Test tube babies become very common.

As we know every coin has 2 sides, so there are good points as well as the bad points of science.

Einstein gave the equation E=mc2 so that the atomic energy can be measured and used for solving the energy crisis. He didn't even thought that his equation may lead to the devastation of two cities (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) and create a potential threat to the mankind. Though we can generate a very large amount of energy from nuclear reactions they still possess a danger. Would you like to live near a Nuclear Power Plant?

Major scientific developments took place in the post Second World War period which also witnessed the Cold War between USA and USSR. That means, majority of the scientific developments took place for warfare purposes.

Another thing, the development of computer made man lazy, weakened his physical abilities, reduced his vision and overall made him think less. We use mobile phones so that at any corner of the world we can talk with our friends and relatives just to tell them that you suffer from cancers due to radiation from mobile phones themselves.

Scientific developments are much worthy of many things. But it is us who always make their negative side. Scientists, researchers, technologists, etc. Work hard for human development. e.g., computers have fastened our human pace of development, mobile phones made us to contact for help during an emergency, etc.

I can't say science is neither boon nor curse. Because science gave us all facilities. Even this discussion is because of science. But it has an another side too. Many lives spoiled because of science. It depends on attitude of people who use it. So try to use it in the right way. Then we can make the world a paradise.

I would like to say that without science we can, t imagine the life of humans nowadays. In early days if we want to communicate with people, we use birds like dove or we send persons to convey our message, today with the help of cellphones, emails, it is possibile to communicate very quickly!so science is always a boon for human beings.

Sir Alfred Nobel experimented with dynamite to clear huge mountains to turn it into productive land. But modern man is using it to kill his fellow human beings and destroy nature. The destructive potential of atomic energy was witnessed in August 1945, when the United States dropped atom booms on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those who survived the nuclear bombing suffered from its aftermath. It is a horrible fact that much of the national income of even a developing country is spent on acquiring latest weapons, bombs and missiles. Guns, revolvers, tanks and fighter planes, explosives, nuclear bombs etc. Were invented to develop a strong security system to protect the innocent masses, but their misuse is now crushing humanity. Apart from atomic weapons, man has also started stockpiling biological and chemical weapons. These weapons are also extremely dangerous.

Biotechnology is a great boon for fighting the diseases. But along with medicines lethal biological weapons have also been developed. Germs are deliberately released into the air to spread diseases. Anthrax envelopes are used for spreading terrorism.

The negative effects of the excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides, used to increase yield, are now evident. Soil salinity has increased. Traces of DDT are found in plants.

Establishment and expansion of factories has resulted in all round pollution. Motor vehicles emit a lot of poisonous material into the atmosphere. This has led to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming.

Television, a good source of entertainment, education and information, has its negative effects too. There are many programmes which promote violence and vulgarity, and teenagers are more interested in watching these programmes. Aggressiveness and violence at an early age have lead to shocking crimes. Sometimes, even the nature people learn and apply different methods of crime by watching serials and movies.

Science has two faces-good and bad. It depends on us which face we want to see.
