Vedic Science versus Modern Science
The modern scientific methods (the methods devised during the past 5,000 years or so) are severely flawed. In fact, they are backwards. The modern scientific method is to proceed from observable phenomenon to draw conclusions about these phenomena based on the premise that material effects arise solely from material causes.
Modern materialistic science asserts that consciousness
somehow evolves from matter. This is as absurd as believing the designer of the
Taj Mahal was created after the Taj Mahal miraculously appeared due to the random
arrangement of atoms.
The entire Universe has been abstracted from
the primordial matter (Prakriti). PURUSH is Real and always manifest. This world
is temporary and is an abstraction of the Unmanifest (Prakriti).
This is a matter of dropping ego. Dropping ego is a matter of spiritual growth. In other words, the elimination of ego constitutes Sadhana (spiritual practice).
Sadhana is work. Generally, people work hard only when they are guided to do so. When we are blessed to work in the Company of the Wise, our progress is quickened and our enlightenment is on the horizon.
A designer always exists before his design. Likewise, the intelligently designed Universe was preceded by the presence of an Intelligent Designer (GOD).
