Does humanity have the right to be exploding atoms and sub-atomic particals and stuff?
If so then doesnt any more advanced alien race have the same right to explode our sun just to see what effect it has on the planets ect... Lets just say that there is a world larger then our own wouldnt you hope that they would be smart enoth to realize that maybe smashing Suns *look like atoms to them* is a bad idea for themselfs and probably anything that lives on thouse systems??? In short has science gone mad with the lust for knowledge?

First, mother nature explodes a lot more atoms than humanity ever will. In our single sun, about 4 million metric tons of hydrogen gets squeezed into helium each second. That's about 4 x 10^36 atoms being smashed. Second, it is rather fanciful to suppose that there is life inside atoms or subatomic particles. Different physical rules apply on scales that small.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun

i merely tried it and that i change into able to separate atoms extremely with a knife, you may want to not be quick sufficient. also i grabbed some air, and that i counted 21 oxygen molecules and seventy 8 nitrogen molecules in that pattern. I counted many sub atomic debris yet my eye sight isn't so strong anymore so there might want to were others that were given away. if i did not have evidence of atoms, i does not have self assurance in them. this is the string idea (you already know orchestra) that I easily have worry with. I received't listen of it, yet then i'm deaf

Who here could tell any alien with that kind of power not to? As far as our lust of knowledge, we could just sit on this orb like a bump on a log and wait for our sun to go red giant and engulf us! We should give up our right to survive? Our survival depends on our leaving this planet at some time or another and thats fact!

What do you mean by 'the right'? Who determines this right? Who would give us this right - or take it away? Your question doesn't really make any sense until you answer that.
But if you think science is spiralling out of control, feel free to give up your cell phone, computer, electricity, car, and indoor plumbing and go live in a tree. You'll be safer that way, away from all that scary science.

Gee, I really like it when you cut to the chase. How much simpler it becomes to understand what you really want to know...
Your question says, "In short...."
No, I don't think science has gone mad seeking knowledge.
Were it not for that knowledge that has been gained, we would not have plastics, about one sixth of the electricity that is currently being generated, Masarati Automobiles, jet planes,
plastic surgery, computers, cell phones, Ipods and artificial sweetener. Who knows what revelations are just around the corner.

Actually, as a species we can do whatever we like, and enjoy, or suffer, the consequences of it later.
If we destroy ouselves, so be it. Whatever comes later inherits the Earth and the right to do what they want with it and themselves.

you do mix a question about world politics with wild speculation about hypothetical aliens, that might or might not consider this issue. and you try to relate this wild speculation with contemporary scientific programs.
the final result is a nonsense question
