Changing For Better or Worse In her article “Staying Human,” Dinesh D’Souza explains two point of views on cloning human beings and also alternating DNA and making the “perfect” child. D’Souza points out that out of all the accomplishments we have made in the world, our biggest one is that of biotech revolution. With biotech revolution (cloning and alternating DNA) as advanced as it is today, scientist can make the world a better place. With the advantage of alternating DNA, the perfect human being can be made which specializes particularly in a certain field. With perfect humans being created for every job field, the world could become a utopia. Scientist can give parents the opportunity to give their child certain genes and traits to increase cognitive ability or physical aspects. Also, being able to design the future generation, crime rates will decrease as well. With the advances in scientific technology coming so far, it was coming to a slow because. Cloning of animals has already been done but the questioning of cloning a human and changing natures role of random was coming into play. With the ability to create the perfect human, that would leave two types of people in this world. The advantaged people who have modified genes and are able to functions in certain aspects better than others. Then there are the disadvantaged ones, the humans that were naturally born, and the ones who don’t have scientifically engineered talents to excel in certain things. Morals are…

Unlike Shehu, the Hausa Kings lacked leadership and able commanders; and thus, Shehu Dan Fodio’s forces were…
As far as I am concerned, knowledge is the footstone of how we human beings live in the world, and is derived from science. It is known to all that our world entered into a rapid development since 1500s due to scientific revolution, and after that, a large number if important scientists made significant decisions which caused people thought more systematically and scientifically. However, since we have entered into the 21st century, different types of knowledge arose, many new branches were invented…

The Limitations of Science
Modified from Lynn Fancher
Humankind has never devised a better tool for solving the mysteries of the universe than science. However, there are some kinds of questions for which scientific problem solving is unsuited. In other words, science has limitations.
There are areas for which science can't help us answer our questions. All of these have the same problem: The questions they present don't have testable answers…

Week 2: Science, Truth and Management
Is there any scientific basis to management?
The diversity of approaches to management theory and practice makes it difficult to explicitly identify the pillars on which it is founded; some academics will dismiss as inconsequential the elements that others consider to be the basis of management and managers will constantly disagree on which factors are more significant in the running of an organisation. For some time, the importance of science in management…
Attempt of a short essay about the industrial revolution
The industrial revolution is the result of the substitution of competition for
the medieval system of production and distribution. I would like to explain how
the industrial revolution increased the wealth of industrialising nations and why
it increased well-being much less and much later than it did with wealth. Firstly
I shall examine how the industrial revolution could produce wealth, secondly
how it could have produced well-being…
Prior to the scientific revolution, the Old World view on science placed heavy emphasis on religion and had geocentric beliefs, meaning that it was widely believed that the Earth was the center of the universe. Then, the scientific revolution of the 17th century established a new view of the universe, reexamined the old theories, and emphasized natural philosophy and science. In 1543 Nicolaus Copernicus published On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres, a book which criticized the geocentric…
