Will Technology Destroy Mankind?

When MAN got to the river he wondered how on earth is he going to cross it, so he build himself a boat. From boats to ships and he was able to travel through the atlantic.
MAN realised again that the horses and camels are like him, they breathe and they can die. MAN was fed up, he needed something that cannot breath but can move; and so he built a four wheeled machine and named it a CAR. All he had to do was put his legs on the pedal and keep his hands straight on the wheels.
It worked, so MAN drived around town in comfort and in style.
As if that wasn't enough, MAN sat on the mountain and watch the birds flying high in the sky. He envied them, he wished he could be free to fly and soar anywhere he desire. His thinking got the best of him, so he build a flying machine and named it AN AEROPLANE.
MAN got his wish. Yet it wasn't enough. "It's time to look beyond your levels", He thoughts. He wondered and pondered what's at the other side above the sky. His greed got the best of him and he built a giant machine and named it SPACESHIP. MAN got crazy and started to build nuts, and from nuts to phones to bombs.
Finally, MAN realised what he has tried creating, so he decides to rest and enjoy the beauty of his creation. BUT ALAS! It strucks. All his creation began to go crazy at one time.
- His cars began to crash.
- His planes began to drop.
- His ships began to sink.
- His spaceships are disappearing.
- His bombs are exploding against him.
Everything is going bizzare. MAN realised what he has done but it's too late, so MAN made a quote instead: "the worst thing about creating a monster, is that one day it will come against you"
And so MAN lived to enjoy and suffer by the works of his own hands till this day.
Technology is good. It helps man to achieve certain heights, but one way or the other technology is destroying man. Man has taken advantage of technology and is now using it against each other. People that invented technology did it for the good of mankind but little did they know it's going to be the
greatest challenge man ever has to face. And if extra measures are not taken, technology might destroy man.
Technology has made man lazy. Man depends on technology to do everything.
- WHEN MAN CREATED TELEPHONES: PEOPLE STOPPED VISITING RELATIVES AND FRIENDS AT HOME, THEY PREFER TO CALL INSTEAD.
- WHEN MAN CREATED TELEVISION: PEOPLE REFUSE TO GO OUT AND VIEW THE NATURE AND IT'S BEAUTY, THEY PREFER TO WATCH IT ON THE BIG SCREEN.
- WHEN MAN CREATED COMPUTER: PEOPLE ALLOWED COMPUTER DO EVERYTHING.
- WHEN MAN CREATED INTERNET: PEOPLE STARTS TO BRING OUT THE WORST IN THEM.
Technology has been been implanted into people's blood. Man cannot do without technology. If technology is taken away, man will die. Imagine this world now without electricity. Do you think man will survive it? Imagine if the planes, the cars and ships are destroyed? Do you think the world will survive it?
The big answer is NO! So technology has come to stay and will stay. That's our biggest fear.
Too much of technology and scientific blah blah blah is killing the nature.
- Our climates are changing.
- The whether is going bizzare with the likes of hurricane Katrina.
- The seas are under attack.
- The Earh is under siege.
No wonder we have countless of Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Volcanoes, you name them.
Different diseases are pouring into the world and into man's system.
- Death rate has increased by the second.
- People are experiencing usual body pains.
- Cancers are killing more people than death itself...
- people now breath in gas instead of air.
- People now drink in substances instead of pure water.
- Animals and Plants are dying too.
- The earth is losing it's grips. WHY?
Because Technology and Science are getting heavier and heavier.
- Do you have any idea how much a single human being weighs? Then multiply it by the total population of the world.. How much?
- How much does a single animal weighs? Muitiply it by the total number of the animal world.. How much? Not to mention the mountains, trees, seas, oceans and each stones and rocks.
- Then how much does a single nuclear weapon weighs? Muitply it by the total nuclear weapon ever built.. How much?
Then tell me, how can one single planet EARTH carry all that heaviness? When God created the world to accomodate you and i, the animals and other creation, He didn't make plans over our excessive technology burdenment.
So don't be surprised that when the earth finally loses it's grips MAN is going to fall so hard on their buttocks and no one might survive to tell the story.
