This can often come off as a bit hypocritical, particularly when dealing with speculative fiction, as you get an {{Anvilicious}} message of "everything we have so far is good, but we should stop now.

** One of your companions, the [[TokenHeroicOrc Super Mutant]] Strong, holds technology in disdain and disapproves of you hacking terminals or using Power Armor.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' generally continues the Science is Bad ethos of the franchise. The Institute, a hidden cadre of scientists descended from M.I.T and the people who create the [[ArtificialHuman Synths]], are generally considered to be the game's BigBad; given [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil how they treat]] [[JustAMachine the Synths they create with almost no consideration for their rights]], it's really not hard to see how mostly people come to that conclusion. Meanwhile the most noble faction, the Commonwealth Minutemen, are a bunch of down-to-earth wastelanders with jury-rigged SchizoTech.

Sometimes the problem is much closer to real-life, such as the scientist PlayingWithSyringes or [[TheyWouldCutYouUp performing invasive, deforming and/or deadly experiments]] on [[TestedOnHumans unwilling subjects]].

* In ''Film/PerfectCreature'', this view is held by [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Brotherhood]], the theocratic vampire government who had outlawed genetic research, regarding it as a godless, abominable evil. They withheld its progress to prevent humans from figuring out where vampires come from, how to prevent them from being born and gaining independence.

** Can also be interpreted as a subversion by savvy readers: the spark is very much _not_ science, it's a blatantly magical force which no one but the original user can reproduce that coincidentally mostly produces physical objects which superficially appear mechanical. The few sparks who can treat the spark as actual science (that is, work out the principles, write them down comprehensibly, and explain them such that others can reproduce them) can be counted on one hand and are treated as problem-solvers of the highest caliber worthy of even enemies' respect: the Wulfenbachs, Van Rijin, and possibly the Storm King.
