Can Science Save Us?   Rev. Ernie Mills

“We believe in science” seems to be the modern-day mantra backed by the belief that science will somehow save the planet. We seem to put as much faith in science as we do any religion.

In posing this question I am aware that the word “save” may raise some issues. What is it that we expect science to save us from? Science has indeed saved us from many killer diseases but ithas also been instrumental in the production of many chemicals that are destructive to both human lives and the life of the planet.

Can we expect science to save ourselves from the fear, hate and greed that so often drive us to war and the destruction of our planet? We’ll explore this question and determine if it is really science or a new myth that will save us.
