What has Gravity done for society?
Far less than Evolutionary/Genetic/Biological sciences. But Gravity doesn't contradict your Goofy Holy Book and stone-age beliefs.
2. Science/Bio is indeed feeding the poor and very useful. ie. new crop strains and farming methods. Including developing plants that are resistant to EVOLVING pests. And of course, recent Medical advances.
3. What's truly worthless and produces NO human progress (witness Koran-ball-and-chain backwards countries), is people holding tightly on to their Holy Books defying progress.

If you know what the Truth you want is and if you’re invested in it, then you develop arguments for that support the Truth. If you just care about making your answer more correct, you just gather more data, write a paper and expose it to review. The sun is small and rises at the eastern edge of the world had many developed arguments to support it. If you look at the sun, earth and its moon from the North Star can you see the moon orbiting the earth?
