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]].

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

* Creator/JossWhedon has said the idea behind the Initiative from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' was to create a conflict between science and magic, and when that happens, magic eventually kicks science's ass. The Initiative goes on recon to study the habits of vampires and captures them so they can do further tests, all to [[DoingInTheWizard better understand how they work and how they can best be contained]]. Buffy just stakes 'em. Guess which works better? Actually, given how many apocalypses Buffy and her friends have actively started and how many monsters she's let go on their merry way because of teenage laziness or stupidity, and given that the Initiative's work only went wrong as a direct result of getting involved with the Slayer... the moral may not actually be what Whedon intended there.
** Actually, Adam would have gotten out of control regardless of the Initiative's involvement with Buffy. They failed because they took it too far and couldn't contain their own asset.

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.

** ''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.

* 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.
