    For :
    Dependence on anything is not a good thing. We evolved to be independent beings for millions of years, so surely all the vital essentials that we need do not come from computers.

    May be what you re saying is true that we evolved as independent beings. But dont forget we evolved with dependence on other humans.

    So one can say that the computer is just another extension of that human from your tribe. And if you ask me computers are getting more and more human like by the day.

    People cant do simple maths in their head now. They have to whip out their calculators, phones and other top notch instruments to add 2+2. Not a good thing if you ask me

    Even our behaviour has changed. People (especially children) instead of going out and meeting in real life prefer to sit in front of a screen and chat aka facebook.

    The human being has invented a great thing that is computer, but as all of you must have heard the saying that excess of everything is bad, the same applies for the computers also. It will be better if we left some of the work to be done by the human, we must not depend too much on computers.

    Post Online Debate #31 - Dependence on computers is not a good thing

    according to me computers have became the necessity of our lives and we can not see it separated so it is not at all possible to seclude ourselves from it , and y not dependance is good.this is created because it is good, it has deeply affected our lives and has prooved its worth by being reliable.now its entiely on user how it uses or disuses the technology. if there were no google there wud have very few real thikers scattered around the world and their wisdom dies wid them , now it is transferred to many .

    so boss we dont have an alternative, we have to be dependent on comps

    For :
    I totally agree with poonam that computers have become necessity of our life but we cannot neglect the physical and mental imapact of computers on our body.Lot of medical cases of eye sight problem,headache and back pain due to long hours of working on computer are live examples.I am not saying to stop using computers i say prefer newspaper for reading instead of computers for the news.In short avoid unnecessary and excessive use of computers.

    of course we need computers but that doesn't mean that we should stop using the traditional way doing imagine how can you teach a LKG student how to write ABCD ... with computers without your help.Imagine if no one knows how to add numbers without calculators or computers as we have never learned the traditional ways.As we see to the fact that entertainment ,commerce and news also exist before computers.So we should use computers as a help not depend on it for everything.

    Yes definitely computers are turning more like humans now a days but we cannot imagine a computer giving birth to a human being.My idea is of course computers can do lot of things and help us to grow faster and eases our work but this doesn't degrade the importance of human itself.If we depend too much on computers we could never come up with new innovations we will loose our IQ level and ability to think.

    Post Online Debate #31 - Dependence on computers is not a good thing

    Everything has its positive and negative points. Same holds for computers also. On one hand , computer has made our lives far more easier, acessible. But on the other hand, it has raised many issue which were not know to us few decades ago. So, its all depends on the way we use anything. Computer is a best alternative but not good to be dependent on fully.

    Against:

    There is a saying that goes "No man is an island". Every human being is connected to something and is dependent on something. Man has been dependent on various things starting from fire, wheel, tools ,other humans to phones and computers. They are all part of the evolution process and have played an important part in Man's growth. So it is not a bad thing to be dependent on tools such as computers.
