The impact of science and technology today cannot be relegated to the background. There is basically no area of human endeavor that has not been affected directly or indirectly by technology. Advances in scientific research have been able to make life easy for man. Notwithstanding the blessings of technology in the 21st century, there is a wide range observation of the abuses of technology. This paper notes that humanity must not lose sight of the negative effects that may come from the abuse of technology and scientific researches. It is a fact that the problems of techno-scientific inventions and researches cannot be easily resolved; however, a direct confrontation between the discovery and instrumental model of science and technology could be avoided if techno-scientists and users utilize every good technology to the service of the human person. This paper recognizes the implication of techno-scientific progress of the 21st century bearing in mind as stated above, the creation and application of knowledge, with deep consideration of the happenstance between the works of those who make discoveries on one hand and those who use those discoveries, with the moral implications in view. It pays keen attention to the many ways man could harness the technology inherent in the 21st century to preserve rather than destroy life.
