Some people believe that science is more important to lead a better life while others have faith in art as a rescuer of human beings. I personally believe in art as a better leader in creating the life better. Here are some of my reasons to support my idea.

  1. more important than what?
  2. Put a comma before “while” as a subordinating conjunction to show contrast.
  3. making a better life

Although science has a key role in making our life more comfortable by inventing new gadgets but when it comes to morality, it couldn’t distinguish between what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, we are witnessing that the science could help life to be more comfortable as much as help it to get more disastrous. It could increase the lifespan of a society as much as commit the genocide of the same society. In order to sum it up, science is a powerful tool that could be exploited by the autocratic governors whether in a good manner or not.
