Is the human race on a collision course for its own destruction’?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Is the human race on a collision for its own destruction?

Before I begin I feel that I need to express a point. The point I must make is that this is my opinion about this chosen topic and I hope it will be read with a open mind and not cast down before it has been finished.

        What I would like to discuss in written form is ‘Is the human race on a collision course for its own destruction’ which needs no further addressment by myself but I feel the need to express a point or two.

        Human life has existed on this planet for a relatively short amount of time considering the age of the planet upon which we inhabit.

Middle

        The advancement in technology is aided by the legions of great scientific minds which always seem to be controlled by some military power somewhere in the shadows watching, with interest what it is that is created next. As soon as a more advanced technology is developed it is used to show strength over neighbouring countries be they friend or foe.

        One of the biggest problems is that all this technology can and probably be used to destroy each other as long as they are continually brought under the control of power mongers such as governments run by politicians.

Conclusion

When people realise that there is only one race on Earth and that is the Human Race then they will be able to get along better. Money also presents a problem, that’s not to say it should be abolished and communism should take president because it has been shown time and time again that it cannot work in today’s world.

        I think the best thing to do is carry on with existence doing the best you can to make life just a bit easier for yourself and others around. If you can do that I am confident that everything will fall into place and sort itself out.

Response to the question

The response to the question is answered well. The candidate communicates in a rather stylised way which should not be used for scientific essays, but this being tended towards an english piece it should be marked as such and it is a good example. It considers a range of arguments reaching a good conclusion and presents their opinion well.

Level of analysis

The essay does not present any solid scientific principles but it is rather a scientific ethics essay considering whether or not humans will get along or if they will amount to their own destruction and if science is to blame. The candidate communicates their opinions very well and expressed some valid arguments that would hold their argument up in today's society. Their conclusion should try to point out some solutions to the problem and unfortunately it doesn't.

Quality of writing

The tone of this essay does not present a very good example, it is very personal from the start, and is an opinion, therefore all the scientific data contained in the data thereafter will be biased. Science essays should not be biased, and should be impersonal and factual in presentation. The only source of an opinion should after different evidence has been weighed in the conclusion. Minor grammatical errors are present and minor spelling mistakes. They communicate with their audience very well. Paragraphs are chosen well and the layout is good.
