You’re in a conversation and someone says, “The human race doesn’t need religion anymore; technology is solving all of our problems.”
What would you say?
Technology today can seem miraculous. We’ve sent people to the moon, cured diseases that in the past killed millions, significantly reduced global poverty and hunger, and we have nearly limitless information constantly available, right at our fingertips. Why would we put our trust in anything else?
The next time someone says, “technology will solve all of our problems,” here are 3 things to keep in mind:
First, technology isn’t really good or bad, but it isn’t neutral either.
Second, science and technology can’t provide an answer for everything.
Third, technology can be a powerful force for good, but we shouldn’t blindly trust it.
