    Speaking statistically thus far it has not, in fact it has amplified in the opposite direction, but do you think that eventually we will reach a threshold where the trend will reverse such as the minimum point on an S curve?
    Not unless someone finds an end to human greed and power seeking. Science is just a tool, no more than a screwdriver. Is a screwdriver going to solve moral issues? None of those problems you listed exist because we lack technology.

    Science is also somewhat religious, to a degree, as an enterprise.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    Alright. Fair enough Hard. Lol. But the bureaucracy of science as an enterprise can feel dogmatic.
