Science, life and future are interrelated, that is, each one of these elements in this triangle affects the other two. In the recent past we have been privileged to witness the largest scientific shift which has affected our lives in every aspect both in the economic and social contexts. The application of scientific knowledge has helped the human race to satisfy many basic needs and also aid in the elevation of the living standards (Rull, 2014). For example, the quest of finding the cure of some diseases such as HIV/AIDS and cancer as well as looking for a solution to the provision of a clean and reusable form energy has an impact to both the present and the future life of mankind as it looks forward to a sustainable ecosystem. Scientific knowledge should therefore be taught to all in the society as ignorance will pull us all back and the ultimate civilization of humans shall never be met both in the present and in the near future.
Scientific knowledge in the modern day world is in continuous scrutiny and questioning. This is because of the fact that scientists can omit some deluding information and add the profitable one with the aim of improving the lives of the people and the modern needs of the current human race. This opens a door to a brighter future in researching for the better ways of living such as healthy living and technological innovations.
Science also plays a very important role in improving the cultural level of human societies (Rull, 2014). In her article, Rull (17-20) argues that human beings chose science as a tool to improve their living standards and better their lives. With that being said we can conclude that with science encouraging logic and reasoning, the future of human can be transmitted visionary through an improved culture as logic and reasoning is a universal natural trait of all humans.
According to the Japan Science Agency (2014) science promotes the creation of intellects and sharing of the intellects with the society in an integrated manner that promotes generation of innovation. Most of the tools, technologies and medicines that the humans use in the present age are a result of thorough and active research done by the preceding scientists.
Disciplines such as architecture, mechanics, aerospace engineering, medicine, et al, are a result of integration of scientific knowledge into the society without which the present life and the future would have been a step-back in the civilization process.
As scientists say, science finds a way to conserve the natural resources to ensure its continuity (Rull, 2014), science has proven to be the fabric that holds the nature of human life and the physical environment as well as the society together. Therefore, knowledge should be taught to all to eradicate ignorance among the populations of the earth as it will lead to a more informed and democratic society who embody and embrace logic and reasoning in their daily endeavors. This will lead to a more peaceful and sustainable community with improved quality of living standards of human race and freedom will be a common privilege to all people!
