The evil that man does

2008-01-15 00:00

Science is the source of all the terrible evils of the world. You don’t believe me? The correlation is crystal clear. Why then did the most scientifically advanced country in the world actually use nuclear weapons in a war? And why did it choose to use them to obliterate two cities if not in the experimental spirit of science, to see what would happen?

The scientific mentality also enables evil to be conducted on an industrial scale — slavery or war or genocide. The mathematics of it has to be worked out as well as the physics and the engineering — how many trains, how much Zyklon B gas, even how many pangas. Without these scientific disciplines massacres on this scale would have been impossible.
