Sometimes I think that maybe we would've been better off if we haven't had as many "scientific discoveries" or if we haven't invented so much technology. Our environment is being destroyed. And I think that some things just never would have become popularized if it weren't for technology like some drugs, sexual immorality and lots of other things. I know that there have been some benefits but sometimes I think maybe we just would've been better off if we never made many of these discoveries. Anyway, I want to know your opinion about science and technology. Is it good or bad? Helpful or sometimes not so helpful. (Click all that apply)
