If you don't believe in science, should you then benefit from it?!

    Science, "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment" (oxford dictionary 2011). We have benefited immensely from science, especially through quantum/mechanics physics, a "branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales, the so-called quantum realm. In advanced topics of quantum mechanics, some of these behaviors are macroscopic and only emerge at very low or very high energies or temperatures". Through Quantum Physics, we have been able to exploit neutrons and electrons behavior to make switches, transistors and ultimately gadget equipments such as computers, radios, music equipments, scanners, medical equipments, etc etc etc. Should the non believers of science stop using these benefits and live to their biblical age life?! Is it fair to even ask them to consider it?! Some can suggest to them to live on the trees, stop using radios and computers or any type of gadgets made through the knowledge of quantum physics.
