Why has Stephen Hawking just predicted science will destroy the planet?


Hawking has just clearly blamed science for the inevitable future destruction of the world. He hasn't blamed religion. Is this because science has provided the weapons and the pollution? Why would such an eminent scientist blame science in this catastrophic way?

    That's referred to as Scientism, this dogmatic belief that science can produce nothing morally wrong; and it's a disease to humanity.
