For all the knowledge which has been given to me, I have only to thank A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, my Spiritual Master and Lord Krsna. Please read on... I was just reading an article from this site (http://science.krishna.org/Articles/2003/04/021.html [Broken]) and it poses a very true argument. Scientists nowadays think that they are getting somewhere with the knowledge that we possess. But for the past 500+ years, science has been constantly changing. New theories are being born and old theories which were at once new, are being torn. Here are couple of "advances" in science that we must question: 1) Theory of Evolution Scientists are saying that we have evolved from apes. Some might say, "Why are there still apes around? Why didn't they evolve?" Then some scientist will try to say something to refute the argument with his/her own "theory" and then comes another scientist to refute the previous argument, and this goes on without a conclusion. On the other hand, we have all experienced how we become mature when we "grow up". We are not evolving in terms of bodily features except that our body which was once small, grows in size in time. Rather, our consciousness evolves and we become aware of many new things. If you compare how your thinking was while you were young to how your thinking is at your present age, you will see that your consciousness changed, and its not that your body underwent transformations such as you growing a tail like that of an ape or you developing supernatural abilities such as jumping from branch to branch on a tree. Apes, when they are young, always hold on to their mothers until they are grown enough to climb the trees and such themselves(to my knowledge). So even for them, their consciousness evolves, which allows them to do a certain physical activity. But, we have not grown out of apes, rather, our consciousness changes, just like that of all living entities, and thus this enables us to become aware of many new things which we were not aware of while we were young. For example, while you were a baby, your parents most definitely talked to you out of affection. But, did you understand? No. But, as they kept talking and talking, your consciousness evolved and you started to understand what they were talking about, when your age was ripe. So the conclusion is, the consciousness evolves and not the body. 2) Most Technology are NOT Science Science means to study the world and to understand who we are and what is our position in this world. It does NOT mean to create technologies so we can enjoy, or to create weapons to kill each other, or to brainwash people. All we see today is new technologies coming out only so that people can buy and enjoy them. But science means to study nature and ourselves, and not to exploit nature for our own meaningless purposes such as technologies and kill each other. Technology will never be perfect because we are not perfect, so how can we make something perfect or near perfection? A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krsna society, has always said that simple living and high thinking should be the goal of every human being. Who can argue with that? If technology can be used to spread true knowledge then that is probably the noblest act that technologies can be used for. What is the use of creating a technology so that one may play meaningless games, design military aircraft and such devastating weapons, spy on others? Rather, if scientists can stop developing technologies for the purpose of enjoyment, and start using them to spread TRUE knowledge as found in the Srimad Bhagavatam (Ancient text containing the meaningful purpose of this life), then this world will turn from a useless place to the most beautiful, meaningful place in this solar system. I will post more arguments later on but please do reflect on these and please post your reactions.
