Quote from this article.
As long as evil exists, science can (and will) serve for both the good and detriment of man.
Those who put their hope in man (and science alone) err greatly. Only God can truly change man's sinful nature and bring redemption and restoration to this world. For more, begin with Romans 8:18ff, then read the rest of the Bible.
