(An argumentative essay by Gold Lawrence)

Science is the study of structure of physical and natural society around us, while technology means application of the scientific knowledge to the betterment of the world. What fault can we find against something that works to better our lives and enhance our living standard?

Gone were the days when man would have to communicate through talking drum, bush burning, and so on or travel a long distance in other to deliver a message through animals. Science has made it easier to send information by providing electronics such as cell phones, computers and so on.

Back in the days, our forefathers would have to make use of crude tools like cutlass, hoe and rake to cultivate, harvest, and do other farming activities because there was no intervention of science. But now science has made it easy by providing machines such as tractors, plougher, planters, harvester and so on. So we don’t have to stress ourselves with the crude tools but use mechanized tools.

Although, some schools of thought has it that trains, airplanes and other means of transportation have disadvantages. But don’t they help us transport goods from one place to another? Don’t they make our lives easier and better? Yes, they do. Science and technology has helped in providing planes, cars, trains for easy transportation, not of goods only but also people. Gone were the days, when farmers would have to trek a long distance just to sell their products and during the process some get attacked by wild animals or some of their goods perish on the way which depleted their profit. Many didn’t even survive due to hunger and thirst, but science and technology came and changed all that.

In addition, science and technology has helped in terms of health by providing vaccines for diseases and illness. Gone were the days, when we gave ourselves self medication and used excessive herbs which sometimes led to death due to our ignorance. But then science helped by providing diagnostic machines and other pharmaceuticals vaccines or drugs to help us live longer and healthier.

Furthermore, science and technology helps in business activities such as advertising by making a brand/product known to the public through magazines, radios, televisions, billboards and so on.

Science and technology has helped in improving our standard of living. Back in the days, our fore fathers would have to make use of fire torches and lanterns to see, using grinding stone to blend their sauces, use clay pots and plates or leaves to eat. On the contrary, science and technology has provided electricity, blenders and other home appliances to make life easy.

So my dear readers, I hope I have been able to change your mind from the misleading motion. The truth that should be embraced by all, is that science and technology has done more good than harm.

Thank you.
