Bertrand Russell wrote, "I think we must retain the belief that scientific knowledge is one of the glories of man. I will not maintain that knowledge can never do harm. I think such general propositions can almost always be refuted by well-chosen examples. What I will maintain-and maintain vigorously-is that knowledge is very much more often useful than harmful and that fear of knowledge is very much more often harmful than useful." Think of examples to support this statement.
