    Who would escape earth in exchange for all these? Just by the mention of "food", you'd have billions from Africa.
    You're just being silly now.

    This conversation is ludicrous. You and I are talking about two different things.

But as far as the evils of science go, it is best to err on the side of caution. The last short story I read was pretty refreshing. It was technically set in a technically apocolyptic future, but it was a very beautiful and natural setting where people had to restrain their impact on the environment to recovery from what we had done. A reviewer described it as 'bucolic', I had to look up that word. I suppose the story showed that we could live well with restraint, and maybe we shouldn't wait till it is imposed on us.
    It's not the "evil" of science; it's the err of humanity and management. Sci-fi is more than apocalyptic settings.

    You talk about the fear of being moved away from nature and towards machines. I say why the fear? You talk about cages. I talk about machines not necessarily being cages.

    Ah, well I assumed that wasn't a point of dispute. It's all ultimately about people. And, yeah.. thanks for letting me know what sci-fi is about. <--- sarcasm

    I understand. I basically didn't have anything else left to say about the function of science fiction, aside from confirming your standpoint on the thread.
