Modern Science and real evidence: Do they really make us happy?

The class of people who have added to the conveniences and means of modern science have also created many bases for strong people to gain more benefits. Seeing the external splendor that appears today, science has produced many conveniences. But when one contemplates the other aspects, the view is quite the opposite.

Science and Scientific Research

With the changing times of modern science logically convincing lay people of its benefits then why instead accept asceticism, self-control, spirituality etc which from the point of view of spirituality, theism and truth may be commendable but when tested for their immediate benefit they fail miserably?

The new logic of the new age straight from criminals, willful people to thinkers who only think what’s popular seems right on an equal footing and seems right in absorbing it as a belief, so why doesn’t everyone accept it too? Why not walk in that direction? The Nietchze thinker vehemently states that in this era of logic the God who exists on the basis of ancient beliefs is dead. Now he had been buried so deep that in the future one would not have to wait for God to manifest again. With regard to religion, the majority of intellectuals who believe in concrete evidence only say that it is like a marijuana pill asking the weak to continue to endure oppression and also asking them not to open their mouths to torture. Along with it, it makes unethical and vile people fearless so that in this world through shrewdness and cunning they may perform degrading duties which are unlawful. If the question of heaven is obstructive, it is much easier to ignore it. By offering worship to some god/goddess or performing religious rituals, one can easily save oneself from the punishment of sin. If so cheaply one can counteract the consequences of a sin committed, the path is clear. So one can happily act according to his wishes and fantasies. And if there is a possibility of facing the harsh fruits of one action, immediately perform some cheap religious rituals and thus overcome the punishment. By offering worship to some god/goddess or performing religious rituals, one can easily save oneself from the punishment of sin. If one can so cheaply ward off the consequences of a sin committed, the path is very clear. So one can happily act according to his wishes and fantasies. And if there is the possibility of facing the harsh fruits of one action, immediately perform some cheap religious rituals and thus overcome the punishment. By offering worship to some god/goddess or performing religious rituals, one can easily save oneself from the punishment of sin. If so cheaply one can counteract the consequences of a sin committed, the path is very clear. So one can happily act according to his wishes and fantasies.

Benefits Often Positive Effects

The flow of time along with the progress of science only gives approval to real evidence. The fact remains that those who include topics like religion and spirituality in their discussions, in their daily life behave like unrighteous and atheists. When we dig a little deeper into the lives of religious leaders and those who fly religious flags, it becomes clear that the majority of them are selfish and fall within the bounds of unrighteousness. In the sense of arrogance, pomp and showing off is another kind of atheism people who praise the importance of theism and religiosity must be true to their word both inside and out. For many, religion is a facade to profit selfishly by washing the eyes of others. They don’t believe that God provides justice and everything sinks in. Otherwise, those who say they are religious will not absorb unwholesome thoughts and activities. Therefore, people who are called religious and atheists are actually sailing in the same boat.

This situation is terrible. If the material comforts that scientific research has given us remain beyond our reach, we too, like our ancestors, will lead simple, high-minded and peaceful lives. The majority of Rishis, great leaders, thinkers and penitents have lived lives of hardship and deprivation but their lives both materially and spiritually are not painful. It is a fact that compared to the so-called rich and prosperous people of today; they lead more pleasant, peaceful, progressive lives. They happily carved out such an environment that could be called the Golden Era and which we all wish to reclaim today.

The class of people who have added to the conveniences and means of modern science have also created many bases for strong people to gain more and more benefits. There is no doubt about this. By paying attention to the outward splendor that appears today, science has produced many conveniences. But when one contemplates the other aspects, the view is quite the opposite. There are very few people who are prosperous, strong, and shrewd. The convenience of materials designed by modern science is generally in their hands. Whatever they hoard does not come down from heaven but is taken from those who are poor and weak and are looked down upon by the rich as despised.This is what is called the gift of knowledge, the influence of time and the age of development. In order to increase wealth some of the poor have been despised and hence the great thinkers wonder whether the world is actually ‘advanced’ or not? Behind this is a clever plan to let the world’s main human race remain poor , weak and oppressed?
