This research also revealed that science has an important role in all aspect of human life; the exploration of science has assisted human in terms of facilitating them in carrying out different kinds of activities and technology as product of science has also accelerated human mobility by shortening and broadening the sphere of time and place of human life. On the other hand, the development of science and the role that it plays has demolished the very existence of humanity. Science is no longer explored; it has already been extremely exploited. As a result, the development of science has threatened and ruined the existence of humans.
