Your simplistic view of "either/or" reveals your lack of understanding of how scientific and medical progress evolves to relieve humanity from the burdens of disease.Without imagination almost all of our scientific understanding of the world in which we live would be non - existent. Diseases that have been conquered would continue to plague us. Indeed, our nation would not exist. It was the vision of what might be that established our democracy. Luddites would trample us.
You can't legislate a ban on imagination!!!
Let me close with a quote from a very wise man, the longshoreman Eric Hofer. He said, "In times of change the learners inherit the earth while the learned are perfectly equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists".
