science has special status in today'sworld because nothing moves without scientific knowledge. Transport, communication, medicine, agriculture, recreation, industry --- all depends on science. The discovery of several things such as computers, cars and air planes, have made the world compact. the most important discovery in todays world is biotechnology and micro technology.
science has made the world smaller and the hopes of people larger.
But in spite of these achievments of science, thinking people have begin to question if it is really a blssing or a curse. It has a dark side too.
So, we should not completly depend on science. We should also be independent of science. Science has made our life comfortable in aspects of life.
hope this helps..:)
