    The one thing about the anti-Christ is he's not gonna give his game away, he is a liar and a deceiver, therefore if he says something is bad ...

    Actually no, as the lives saved by the use of such technologies also has to be factored in, which you do not do. I know from an account I heard here in the UK that specialist surgeons, for example, have formed social media groups and exchange info ... to the point where a boy knocked off a pushbike and with complications to a broken leg, had no less than eight top-of-their-game specialists around the world advising on his operation ... this while the company that made the artificial joint that was being used to rebuild the limb was watching live on a tv link, also offering advice based on hundreds of similar applications they have dealt with.

    Kids aren't let out because there's too much traffic and we all drive too fast ... kids are obese because we all live on a diet of processed and fatty foods ... take away their tech and they will not turn to God to fill the gap or avoid the boredom, so that's not really an argument.

    Yes, but by majority these people are not scientists, they're speculators ... so again, turning on science will not solve that problem.

    It will consumerise whatever you offer it, including religion ... should we ban Islam because of Isis or Boka Haram?

    Only because you're not interested in the benefits.

    The SARS almost-epidemic that could have become a significant killer was caught early by a doctor who'd flown by air to an out-of-the-way part of the world, where he took the latest cutting-edge medicines to treat the poor and the dispossessed. He happened to be a world authority on respiratory diseases, who was tracked down by high-tech mobile phones, rushed to the hospital in question by aeronautics, utilised the latest high-tech equipment to treat the sick, and used his global authority to isolate the hospital and prevent the spread of the disease. He and the working with him died, but they were inside the envelope and prevented the disease from getting out ... his actions, all enabled by just the kind of tech you would get rid of, saved thousands, possibly millions ...

    And one thing ... if this train of thought ever got its way, who do you think would be celebrating most of all as we burn the books of knowledge we have gathered over millennia, because that's what you're asking for ... I rather think it would be the anti-Christ ...

    Sorry. But please check this out. Francis Bacon was trying to work AGAINST magic/god/devil as an explanation. He was the originator of the 'scientific method', which demands experimental proof for scientific ideas.

    In other words: I have a nice theory, I am required to devise an experiment to confirm it. Until then, it's just an idea.

    Such as string-theory which has not found confirmation for super-symmetry at LHC energies. So it's still just an idea, because Bacon's scientific method requires experimental proof.

    So I got this just by skimming the Amazon notes about this book.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Knowledge-Power-Government-Apocalyptic-Francis/dp/1840464739

    ' ... Bacon promoted experimentation, coming to outline and define the rigorous procedures of the 'scientific method' that today form the very bedrock of modern scientific progress ...'

    Sorry as I said earlier, it's policy to check everything ...

    I believe this is a natural law that cannot ever be changed. It's George Orwells's Animal Farm: All the animals were equal, but some were more equal than others. There will always be those who take advantage to enrich themselves. It has always been like that. Since 10 000 yrs ago -- it is a fact of nature. Or at least of humanity. There was never a perfect past when this was not the way of the world?

    On another level it is the law of gravity: 'To that which has, more shall be given, and to that which has not, even the little it has shall be taken away.'

    But of what? 'There where your treasure is, there shall your heart be also.'

    It is the natural law. Imo. We do not know why?
