The importance of science in the 21st century is to make ourselves free, to observe reality, the world and everything that surrounds us with a critical look. It leads us to ask ourselves questions, and therefore to be always curious, find solutions to the problems that may arise with the reality around us and experiment the solutions we find ourselves.
The main advantage of science is that it gives us the opportunity to study all kinds of diseases and it gives us the opportunity to answer all the questions and curiosities that we ask ourselves and which the whole world raises. This makes us very fortunate since, a few decades ago, this would not have been possible, and we would not have been given any answers to our curiosity. Science is very important, above all, for our future, for economy and for the world of work, because it always leads us to new discoveries.
Another advantage is that it is essential for the growth and progress of mankind. It has enabled us to make a great deal of discoveries about so many diseases, that affect mankind and, since science knows how to treat many diseases, many people can be healed.
Furthermore, science means progress, and it is very important because evolution for a better human life, but it must be used correctly and must not cause damage to the environment and any living creature.
However, there are also many disadvantages. For instance, science has caused a great deal of damage to the environment through its experiments. Furthermore, there are also inventions and discoveries that have caused millions of deaths because they have gone into the wrong hands, such as the atomic bomb. In fact, Einstein could have never imagined that such an abominable thing could have come into the project. Anyway, it is true that a potentially positive source of energy has been exploited in a very bad way. In addition, another negative aspect of science is that its excess, for example, the increase in robots in the world of work is a huge disadvantage for young people looking for a job, because automation takes reduces the chances for humans to be hired because of the perfection that can be achieved by machines.
In conclusion, without science men would not be as developed as it is now, and human life would be of a poorer quality, so science is fundamental in the world, but without it, the planet would certainly be healthier than it is now. I am in favour of science because, without it, we could not have developed and the quality of our life could not have increased. We just need to be very careful not to misuse, but to use it carefully.
