It is no doubt that we live in a global world where technology rules and thrives, men and women in the field of science and technology take no rest in seeing that the world we live in today is fast tracked, less cumbersome and fascinating.
Every facet of human endeavours: arts, science and humanities, etc. are embracing the world of technology to decipher the code to unlocking the difficulties facing our global village.
From the biblical account of creation, you can see imagination and creativity playing through God’s mind, Gen 1:2-5(kjv) ‘’ The earth was without form and void: and darkness was on the face of the deep and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters, then God said , ‘’let there be light and there was light’’. And God saw the light that it was good and divided the light from darkness.
Furthermore, the science of taxonomy is dated to Adam, the first man according to Gen 2:20 (kjv).
Therefore, science and technology is not new to mankind, however, it is the network of rapid innovations, structural modernization and swift handling that has made the differences over the years.
Many professional fields of practice like medicine, nursing, education, engineering, law, agriculture, management etc. are today in one way or the other using technology to better their professional service delivery and expertise.
It is pertinent to have technology in various human fields but most importantly is to train and groom young professionals in such fields to handle and get involved in seeking appropriate , culturally accepted technology that will help to better service delivery.
