"The Mantle Is Far, Far Greater than the Intellect"
This Mormon Gags has some truth to it, but Science has also created nuclear weapons... Perhaps the benefits of modernism is still being debated... -Nuclear weapons, -pollution, -global warming... The biggest positive I see is this, from The Oxford Guide to Modern Science: "... If you imagine a wave of humanity spreading outward at 1% of the speed of light, it will cross the entire Milky Way Galaxy in 8 million years, to occupy billions of suitable niches not already claimed by living things. In that time-scale, there is no great rush, unless it is to start the process before demoralization, destruction or extinction closes the present launch window for the human breakout into space". Does that blow your mind? It does mine. So the real question is who is going to help us not destroy each other more: prophets, or scientist? Scientist give us power, but prophets (should) teach us how to use it. For those who have missed my Romney Rants: If the fruits of Joseph Smith are that a personal from a religious minority in the most powerful country on the planet can get elected as president, then perhaps he will assist in creating a more stable planet, that can make it to the stars...
