In this blog I will answer my title question which is “Should scientific experiments that pose a threat be stopped event if they might contribute to humanity?” I will not give a yes or no instead I will talk about the dangers and I will let the reader decide.
First of all, I would like to say that the threat of this experiment depends on the magnitude of the threat. For example, if the threat is not that significant and if it will not pose a large threat I would see any threat in conducting that experiment. If the magnitude of the threat is large I probably would not conduct that experiment because it has the risk of injuring many people or goods. As a conclusion, I would like to say that the decision
Second of all, I think there is also an ethical perspective about this topic. For example, if the experiment is done on a human being like the coronavirus vaccine tests we have been seeing since the beginning of the pandemic. For example, if the test is successful it might save the lives of 100,000 but it’s done on a human and there is still a risk that is won’t be successful which is again another really complicated topic.
Third of all, I think that scientific experiments also pose a threat towards the person, an animal that s being tested and some of these tests can result in the death, injury of these species. One of the risks is also about the species or human being tested and this topic has been debated for a long time but I don’t intend on making a claim about that.
To conclude, I would like to say that there are many factors regarding the decision to pursue a scientific experiment or not in this blog I gave some information about those factors. Finally I would like to talk about those factors again the first one is the magnitude of the contribution and the second one is the person or species that experiment is being pursued on the possibility of death, injury of those people.
