Technology - Good or Bad?
As great as modern advancements in medicine and technology seem to us over our lifetimes, (curing diseases, healing injuries, etc.) it seems that the great majority of them could prove to be detrimental to our species' survival in the long run. Antibiotics are creating more resistant pathogenic bacteria. Appendectomy's allow us to keep a feature in our digestive tract that has more potential harm than good. Is there any examples of modern technology that could benefit our species in the long run, whether already developed or in development? Are we creating a weaker human race, diminishing the chances of survival for the generations to come? What are other threats to the future survival to the human race?
