In the modern society, science and technology poses a threat to traditional culture and technology. Some people say: ! ^0 Science has extended life, conquered disease and offered new sexual and commercial freedoms, so it doesn! t matter if traditional culture and technology fades away! +/-. I disagree with them by three reasons below: Firstly, traditional culture and technology is a basis of modern science and plays an important role in development of modern science. As we know, Chinese invented gunpowder and contributed significantly to the world civilization. However, nowadays the initial use of gunpowder in China is not only for weaponry, but also for space launch. We may remember the day when our nation successfully launched its first manned space mission in October 2003.

Secondly, distinct cultures represent unique visions of life itself, morally inspired and inherently right. As we drift toward a blandly amorphous, generic world, as traditional culture disappears and life becomes more uniform, we as a people and a species, and Earth itself, will be deeply impoverished.
