If you believe you are doing a good thing and someone else believes you are doing a bad thing — do you have the responsibility to investigate your own belief to see if there is any hard evidence one way or the other?

Or at least define what you both mean when you say “good” “bad.”

Or are we only responsible to ourselves?

Whatever we believe may change how we perceive reality, but beliefs do not change whatever is. That’s why scientific analysis of measurable facts is more powerful than human beliefs.

Technology is basically a human belief system or a corposystem set of beliefs that incorporated some factual data from science. Whatever technology can do or whatever the corposystem believes will not change measureable facts.

Survival at a reasonable level of comfort requires that we recognize the factual limiting factors of our existence within the ecosystem. The biggest of these is that all the energy to sustain life (food) is produced in present time inside the ecosystem only by photosynthetic organisms — that would be plants and photosynthetic bacteria.
