Is science making the world insane?
Science is often attacked for its quest for knowledge and to learn how things work. Science has brought great discoveries to the world. Electricity that powers our cities and every appliance we use in our homes. Science asks and answers new questions every day. Yet mankind has stayed in a continued state of war and chaos since the dawn of time. Is it science that is creating the problems that are creating the hate and war holocausts?
Is it mathematics that is causing this problem, all that crazy new math and quantum theory? The calculus, algebra and endless formulas are simply too much for man to deal with and it is making him more war like every day?
Maybe it’s the work of astronomers that discovered that the earth is not flat? That leaned about the solar system and the Milky Way galaxy we live in. Then reached out and found endless galaxies and continues to find and discover new powers and forces that exist. Maybe the shear number of stars and galaxies is making us all crazy?
Or maybe we should look more closely at archeology? Maybe the study of ancient artifacts and learning about past life is causing the problems. Is the prospect of prehistory animals the size of a building simply too much for us to take?
Is it the health and fitness discoveries that are putting too much pressure on us? The discovery of germs and viruses and how to treat them that has extended our lives. Learning about fat, calories and proteins so we are forced to eat better to promote better health and vitality? Is this extended life and pressure to eat right and exercise the problem?
Possibly geometry and engineering that is building our cities, streets, water and sewer facilities and everything we use daily from our cars to a tooth brush? Maybe all this added convinces and comfort is simply more than mankind can handle and it is forcing him to be bigoted and genocidal?
Well…this problem has been ongoing for thousands of years and is getting worse. So if man has not figured it out by now there simply must be no logical reasonable explanation for it. It must be that mankind is simply a war monger and it is his never changing nature to kill himself in endless wars.
So, it’s probably much better to not think about it too much because it may cause even greater stress on a world that it already insane enough.
Oh wait…did I ask about Religion?
