Hiii, what is your view, whether knowledge is blessing or its curse, i think knowledge is a curse because advanced knowledge leads to destruction because invention such as Nuclear weapons and hydrogen bombs leads to A very vast destruction of man kind. its like a coin, it has two sides on one side, if we use it for good things like helping others and all knowledge is a blessing but on the other side if we use it for things like war and others it will is a curse. Most of the time scientists doesnt know that their use of knowledge is not in the right path like scientist invented nitrogen fertilizer for increase in the yeald but it lead to the death of large number of people around the world. so it all depends on how we use our knowledge. post your views and opinions about this topic. lets form like a debate

Lack of knowledge can be a curse but never knowledge. What is a curse are the evil people with wicked minds who uses knowledge for destrucion. Knowledge per se is good that's why we go to school to gain knowledge and be educated. If knowledge is a curse, we are better off closing down all schools. Just like with any other good things, they can be abused and wrongfully used.
