According to me, science is boon as well as bane. It's upto us that we use it in a +ve or a -ve way.
Merits:-The present is an age of scientific advancement nd technology. Man has invented wonderful machines to make life more comfortable. A large no. Of advantages of science have so far been sung evidently, there is harder any field where science is not required.
-ve points:-As we are using science we are equally losing. As science is giving life to people (medical science) on the other side it is equally horryfying. Ok!Let me give you an example, we all are familiar with news of atomic bombings on Hiroshima nd Nagasaki. In that incident million of civilians lost their life.
Conclusion:-It is rightly said that a coin has two sides nd it is depend on evil mind of msn that they prove science as a blessing or curse.

|In my opinion, science is always boon because science only gives information about the beautiful Univers but that bad human mind uses that information for their ideas belonging to destroyed.|
We know that nuclear science is used for nuclear energy to reduce the use of resources but at that same time, bad human mind will use nuclear science in making of bombs.

|According to me, science is boon and bane both.|
Merits: As we all know that we are living in the modern age of science and science is a blessing of us. It is stepping stone for the development of the world. Science has made our life easy and comfortable. We can do anything in minutes by just sitting at home. By science, new facts are being known to the world.
Demerits: Science reduces human efforts at the same time it makes them restless and lazy. By using electronic gadgets current consuming is more. It makes people always dependent on electronic gadgets.

|In my opinion, behind every developed country there is a hand of science. Yeah, science is definitely a boon. We just can't imagine our life without science. Not going very far, just give a look around yourself, we can find that we need science on our every move. From climbing up the stair to coming down smoothly by escalator there is science. But everything becomes bane when it is misused. So guys and gals give your best to prove it boon as you need it even though if you don't want.|

|Even though the topic is "Science, a boon or curse?" Can we really classify it as so? just the existence of something cannot be stated as good or bad. Its how we use it that can be. People are becoming lazier due to science?, then control yourself. It is up to us how to use the knowledge we have gained. We make the choices in our life. Science just provides better tools. As long as we use it properly we can make our lives better using science.|

|Science is like a real god for use, yes there are also disadvantages to it. Let me explain alternately good and bad impact on human life of science. Before now when medical science was not very developed many people lost there life in zympotic disease due to not a perfect diagnosis and also effective medicine. Nowadays medical science is developing very well and this result is showing decreased in mortality.|
We also invented new machines its is giving us a step towards the development because or science but is has bad effect also we should try to spotlight on it. Due to more industrialization pollution level also increases and it is affecting on the health of all living being. It is harming to nature.
But we can see at the other side of this industrial development, we can live without machines in this civilization. We are rounded by all machines. Railway, car, aeroplane, bicycle its all are the result of science. By the use of it we can travel until the end of the world. And the computer and internet is the greatest invention of all time. We can fill the world into our room. But by the user of this thing human are getting lazier and lazier day by day. Before we were using own mind to calculate any sum but now a day we use a calculator, its areal fact of a modern human. And people is being addicted to smartphone its the worst effect of good science. The young generation is falling in a love of the visual world of the internet they are spending lots of time on social media for the time pass. These results are very dangerous, some are being physio patient it is really overused of internet effect on our nature, mind and also in behaviour.
At last, I will say that science is fully boon and partially bane. Because there is 1 disadvantage behind 100 advantages.

Knowledge is never bad it depends on how it is utilized even science is what made us realize our errors in route to civilisation and scientists are trying their best to rectify them and trying to control if best possible then to put a stop to it so that no further harm is done and brother if you don't admit this then think what if we returned to early ages where we and animals living together with our views limited blood cold and live under one motive KILL OR BE KILLED. |

|Science is regarded as a imperative asset for a developing country. We cannot blurt out about 'science' and categorise it bane just because we have incidents like 1945 Hiroshima or Bhopal gas tragedy etc. There is other side of leaf as well, contrary we are surrounded by robots, machines, androids and many more surreal technologies which had made our life easier. In past, ISRO scientists have to travel long just because they don't have cranes like technologies to bring equipment faster. Today these technologies have mitigated their time and today it is giving NASA a great competition or said in Hindi 'takkar'. We should not forget the more time we have, the more progress will be there. There is a saying, 'there used to live a wise man between the two mountains'. Regarding science we must have that approach.|

As it has helped humans drastically in various feilds like developing the most important three basic needs of life food shelter and clothes.
Also it has helped to live with more comfort level.
It has developed to such a height that we can even land on other planets.

Equation: now a day you study from smart classes in many schools and you study himself form YouTube.
Travel: we can early go to other place in a few hour or a few minutes that is boon of science.
Medical: it is very clear no doubt that in the of medical science is boon because in past time for cancer no treatment but now it is available.
Agriculture: we know that we are live in India and Indian people are dependent upon Agriculture in age of science corpse are much production from past time.
In past time former plough field in 2-3 day now time field is ploughed in 2 hour from tractor.
So I just want to say that it is our responsibility that we are use of science in right fields.

|Hello, everyone. As every coin has two faces. Science too has its advantages and disadvantages. If we utilize the good advantages then life becomes easy and meaningful. Then we call it a boon. Like everything we use is a gift by science. From very morning with fridge tv washing machine to cars computers medicine satellites discoveries of new planets all are the gifts of science to mankind. But if we consider arms ammunitions nuclear weapons, they can destroy the whole world in just a few seconds. So the use of it makes it bane for us. Not only the utilities harm us but as science developed we became dependable on it. The use of toxic chemicals in factories and machinery to environment pollution. Which also affect us. We must learn ourselves and teach others to reap the benefits of science and discourage the use of bad science which not only bad to us but the whole existence of life on earth. Thank you.|

The Meaning of Science
You can classify science as a systematic classification of experiences, which is what people call scientific. When we feel surprised at events, we will sometimes get doubts, what does this classify as? The concerns are the seed product of technology, and it begins with sound reasoning, research, thinking, evaluation, features, and finally, you discover the hard facts of a subject. Almost all researchers have followed the scientific method in one way or another, but sometimes it gets diluted through politics and secret agendas.
Today, in the 21st century, science's subtle hand can be found in evidence everywhere. Every aspect of our modern human existence circles back to science whether we're talking food, recreation or the classroom. Some people argue science has proven more a bane than a boon while others argue how it has made our lives easier and brought us out of the Stone Age. Before we begin, we should first take a look at actual meaning of the word "science" so that we can discern the actual meaning because sometimes politicians and corporations mix in an agenda with science.

Science: Boon or Bane?
Beyond any shadow of a doubt, science will continue to advance well into the future. One of its more interesting discoveries has been the possible use of bacteria to help clean up oceanic oil spills like the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Science has engineered a form of hydrocarbon bacteria and microbes that feed off the polluted parts of the ocean, called Alcanivorax borkumensis. These microbes are available even now, but unfortunately, science has not yet reached a point where they are effective. Still, it could be a huge advantage in the future.
Most people won't argue how we wouldn't be in a lot of the messes we have today if it weren't for science. For example, when the BP oil spill happened, we wouldn't even be in that mess if it weren't for scientific advances that made those things possible. To extract the oil from deep sea drilling, for example, we needed a great deal of scientific research involved in how to conduct deep sea drilling. When the oil flooded out and polluted the ocean, we used science to unravel the trouble it had already gotten us into. Another way science has decimated the environment relates to manufacturing and the ozone. Whenever someone sprays hair spray, it depletes the ozone layer, which will hurt us over the long term if we're not careful to address these environmental concerns.
Science: Boon or Bane?
In the past, most people in the western hemisphere viewed countries of the East as more exotic. With the advances in technology made from science, we can now sit at home in Arkansas and communicate 7,414 miles to a long-time friend in China. All this happens without either party ever leaving their home in a matter of seconds. In that sense, you can make friends all across the globe, and you never even have to leave your home to do it. That's the type of luxury that not even the great kings of the Medieval era had. This global communication also makes it much easier for families to speak with each other when they go abroad. For example, a mother's son may choose to serve in the military, and nowadays, instead of having to write letters home, they can do a video chat over Skype, and it's like they never left.
Cultures sprung up with unique characteristics in the past, and it made the world a truly unique place to travel around. You could see the colorful Holi Festival of Hindu India and visit the ancient Mayan ruins of Guatemala while eating the special cultural foods of these countries. Today, however, McDonald's has sprung up in each of these countries, and the ease through which we communicate across the globe has made the world feel much smaller. As a result, there's a global influence that has started to make the world less unique and more the same. Many people, for example, see the rising of McDonald's across many cultures and countries as a bad thing for health and the uniqueness of countries. By making the world smaller, it lowers the awe factor.
Science: Boon or Bane?
Because of the systems we have implemented today, drought and famine have a slightly less devastating impact. Through scientific knowledge, we have learned how to deal with drought and famine. For example, when California experienced a drought in 2014, we simply shipped over $110 million in supplies to that region from areas not experiencing the drought. The scientific ideas that we became aware of as we learned about resource management has helped us to deal with these hard times better. We have a kingly selection of food choices that were unheard of in the past. The royalty of the past could not even dream of some of the convenience we have today. For example, we can live in the cold climate of Alberta, Canada, and have mangos, a fruit that does not grow there, shipped from countries like Nicaragua and Mexico, and because of food preservative knowledge obtained through science, we can taste these foods. In the past, they may have rotted on the voyage to such a far-off destination.
More than one complaint has been raised against food preservatives and how they cause health problems. You wouldn't, for example, consume battery acid would you? Phosphoric acid, one of the preservatives popular in soft drinks, can erode your teeth, and based on a report from "General Dentistry," it can be as harmful to the teeth as battery acid.

There's a funny joke that goes, "People of today have all the knowledge they could ever dream of, yet if they spoke to someone from the past on how their smartphones work, most wouldn't give that description. Instead, they tell them how they use it to look at cat pictures." That joke highlights the reality of today. With a simple search on Google, we have all the knowledge we could ever need in a lifetime. That leaves us with plenty of opportunity to become some of the most educated people in the world if we use it correctly. Learn how Google grew from a successful scientific project at Stanford.
The biggest problem with Google is how answers become so easy that it hardly requires thinking. With so much instant gratification, people no longer have to think things out and discover them for themselves. In the past, when you wanted to do this level of research, it required a great deal of thought and reading through multiple volumes before you could reach an answer. Still, this bane is fairly easy compared to some of the others.
