There is no fortification mortal man could make against danger that is perfect. A glaring example of how helpless man is to prevent disasters despite his technological advancement, is the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Centre Twin Towers, located in New York, United States of America, which demolished the entire structure and caused the death of 2,819 persons.

Also, on November 9, 1979, computers at the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) headquarters gave a false alarm of a large-scale Soviet missile attack on the United States. Preparations were underway for a retaliatory attack when it was found to be a false alarm. Since then other false alarms had been reported in the United States.

A similar event took place in the Soviet Union on September 26, 1983, when a Soviet satellite-based detection system gave a false alarm. Truly, the inventions of man are not only imperfect but dangerous. (Ecclesiastes 7:29) How can man solve the world's problems when the technologies he has created pose grave danger to human lives? David the king warned, “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help…” “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” - Psalm 146:3, 4; Isaiah 2:22.
