why technology is BAD for the world/humankind.

This is Mary Parker from www.facebook.com/mary51shawn and this is my essay on why technology is bad for the world and the humankind.

Sure technology has it's benefits but what if computers never existed? What if Bill Gates was never born? Would you even know who I am? Probably not, unless you are my neighbor. If we didn't have technology to waste our time with we would be sitting at dinner with our family, playing a card game with our kids or trying to get the cat out of the tree. We would know the name of the man who bags our groceries at the store, the name of the police officer who helped you get the cat out of the tree when all your attempts failed miserably. Your neighbors would still bring over brownies to introduce themselves instead of just adding you as a friend on facebook. If we didn't answer the phone it's because we are probably at the drive-in movies and couldn't bring the land line with us. Families would have more get-together's and we would all have something to talk about because you haven't read every detail everyone's life on Twitter or MySpace.

If we didn't have technology then you wouldn't get online and order pizza to be delivered for dinner. You would make a homemade meatloaf and force your kids to eat it or "you won't get any dessert!" I believe we would all be a little healthier and happier too. I believe technology has made us lazy and some of us even dumber. Why learn math when you have a calculator on your phone? Why remember when the Battle of the Alamo took place, when you can just google it.

I think, in some ways, mankind would be better off if technology (after the land line was created) stopped progressing.

Do you agree? Disagree? Please explain, I'd love to hear your point of view. I know obviously technology is important. I just wanted to bring awareness to some of the negative effects of technology. And I didn't even open the "pollution" can! Don't get me started. LOL

Nobody can force you to use the PC or electricity. But even if we (or some of us) choose to live like in 18th century we will still need electricity not to die from hunger or freezing. Year 1900 - 2bln. people after 5000years of evolution. 100 years and two world wars later - 7.5bln.

Technology has good side and bad side.
Say, Computer and Internet, enable international and global communication, but it cause many health problems.

But overall, technology still helpful.

Instead of saying technology are bad, I would say, modern Technology seems advance, but actually are not. It only solve some problem on our life, but it also cause new problem.

Major world problem, like Poverty, crime, disease, war, conflict, disaster, corruption, industrial and road accidents, cancer, aging, poor health, etc. Modern technology are all failed to solve such problems.
