One disadvantage is that technology has arguably made people more anxious. Given that more people now rely on the Internet and do not have to socialize quite as much as they had to, some people may feel that they lack the social skills that are required for high powered jobs and for a normal life. People can now live with ease without ever leaving their home. All their essential services can be provided by delivery, all of which can be organized either over the Internet or over the telephone. People can even work on the Internet, meaning that it is more than feasible for a person to live at home and literally never leave the house.
Then of course, science and technology is a source of huge controversy and debate. Before the kind of technological progression we have seen today, religion and community spirit reigned. People relied on one another and regularly attended religious ceremonies as a way of getting together as well as celebrating their values. These days, religion clashes with science and we have two distinct groups of people. We have the people who are pro-science and anti-religion, and those who are pro-religion and anti-science. This causes great conflict and means that the government has to be incredibly careful in regards t some kind of scientific advancement. For instance, stem cell research.
Then of course there is the cost. In times of economic crisis, the government needs to cut back as much money as possible. This is why many people do not believe that funding scientific projects is a great idea, and think that it should be stopped. Science funding is absolutely huge in the United States and some pro-religion people would argue that the money could be spent better elsewhere.
If at one hand, science and technology has brought a lot of wonders for us then on the other hand, there are disadvantages of science and technology as well. Firstly, it has increased the anxiety in our lives. Secondly, when technology goes in the wrong hands then it can negatively impact the society such as the increasing rate of cyber crime, hacking, stealing of personal information and pornography websites. Thirdly, technology has also increased the alternatives and opportunities for the terrorists. Moreover, technology has suppressed our physical efforts and we are getting more luxurious and comfort living. The economies which lag behind in incorporating new technologies are considered poor economies and their progress in the world is hindered.
The more this world is updated in science and especially technology, the more machinery is created. More pollution, more deadly war technologies, more destruction. Also, when new technology is created, less workers are needed and many loose their jobs (Best example of this: The Industrial Revolution during the 18th century)
It has increased luxury in our life but it had made us lazy we have become dependable upon such resources as population are increasing our demand are increasing which increases place for living so we are destroying are natural resources.
Disadvantages of science and technology is
creates human original DNA
creates poor and rich peopels
Science and technology destroys the environment and brings catastrophe.
I have to write an debate on science a bane...helpp
