Reasons Why Science is a Religion
About Science in General
The question if science made the world a much better place, is debatable. Besides bringing comfort, it also brings more pollution and inequality. There are also aspects of modern science that increasingly resemble to a religion.
Scientific materialism promotes the claim that testing, verification and falsification of theories is the only sure path to knowledge. If something cannot be tested scientifically it is forever speculative. But is it?
Two philosophical questions that every scientist should ask:
- Can experiment be placed above pure reason?
- When something is proven mathematically, would that still require an experiment?
Mathematical knowledge should be placed above scientific knowledge. The reason for this is simple - science uses mathematics as the ultimate tool to describe the material world. With great success. Without mathematics, science would be cripple and blind.
Scientists made the human senses the criterion of what exists or not exists. They assert that reality must conform the prejudice of science. This makes science a believe system and not scientific at all.
Scientific materialism only temporarily uses mathematics, to withdraw formulas that fit the outcome of experiments. To put it more simple: science verifies the higher with the lower. Verification of a mathematical theory by an experiment. Only then a theory is complete. This is the world upside down.
Scientific materialism will therefore never find true answers.
A mathematical truth is the ultimate truth. When an experiment shows other results than the mathematical equivalent, the experiment should be questioned, not the mathematical outcome. Materialistic science doesn't realize it is chasing errors by using flawy experiments. Mathematics is the foundation of knowledge, not science.
The truth presented by science is wrong precisely because it has philosophically preferred testing over pure mathematical reason. Any scientific theory can be overthrown by a newer theory because science is focused on the material world.
By neglecting the mental world as the basis of matter, science makes a dramatic error, which will make them replace their theories all the time by a newer version. Hopelessly failing to find the ultimate answer.
Most scientists adopt the ridiculous and absurd conclusion that mind is a product of matter. Therefore are all consistent scientific materialists atheists and/or agnostic.
Do You 'Believe' in the Big Bang?
A Dead Universe
Scientific materialism says that testing of scientific theories is the only way to be certain of anything. Scientific theories that must be approved by the establishment are only 'right' to the extent to which they reflect empirical evidence.
But since no experiment can reveal unobservables (noumena) then the scientific approach automatically obeys a materialistic and empirical ideology and rules out idealism and strict rationalism.
Anything that cannot be tested experimentally is cast off to metaphysics or religion.
Humans have no Soul, because it is unproven. According to science the Universe is a dead place.
Worshipping the Lower Above the Higher
There is a striking similarity between Science and Abrahamism.
- Science worships experiment above Mathematics and pure Reason. They worship the lower (materialism/experiment) and reject the higher (mental/philosophy/mathematics) as the ultimate answer.
- Abrahamists worship the Demiurge (materialism/creator), a deity that is lower then the pure Spirit (mental/God), and they reject their own spirit as God.
These two similarities are not really surprising, because they both spring from the same origin - a world controlled by the elite and the ignorant establishment.
Humanity is kept stupid from pure reason, and this includes scientists.
Worshiping the Demiurge = worshiping Experimental Materialism = worshiping dogma's.
Life Would Spring From Dead Matter
The String-theory, hopefully called the Theory of Everything would provide scientists a long waited answer, similar to a prophet who bestows his craving disciples divine bliss.
According to science dead matter can be decomposed to tiny 1-dimensional strings. Vibrating strings that have no width only a tiny finite length. Why matter can be decomposed into tiny pieces, and then suddenly stops to be decomposable without sufficient reason, shows still a medieval mindset.
From countless dead vibrating strings, like in a biblical miracle the mind would arise. How is a mystery. Scientists show in this view they cannot seem to escape from the similarities with murmuring prophets, creating something from nothing.
Creating mind from dead matter is impossible. Everything IS Mind. Matter is a reflection of Mind, also called the Spirit or the Soul.
The Spirit does not require any strings or unwitting theories.
Universal Law of Gravitation
The most successful law science ever produced is the Universal Law of Gravitation. By using this law are engineers able to navigate satellites through space with surgical precision.
Gravity is a pure material law presented as a universal law. This law implies that gravity is a force between bodies that should behave in similar ways regardless of where you are in the Universe. That's quite an extrapolation we see here, and because it seems to work, it is assumed that it proofs to be true. That's the illusion that experiment provides us.
Where in the objects these laws are stored and how these forces transfer themselves remains a mystery. How does an apple 'know' how to fall? Silence...
Science only uses mathematics to describe a material world, not explaining it, and not really understanding it.
Already more than 300 years ago, Newton proposed, that two objects, no matter their mass, exert gravitational force toward one another.
This law obeys the following equation: Fg ∝ (m1 × m2) / d²
- Where Fg is the gravitational force between the two objects, measured in Newtons.
- m1 and m2 are the masses of the two objects.
- d is the distance between the two objects.
- ∝ means proportional.
Science only 'believed' in this law after it has been subjected to experimenting, thus relying on their senses instead of logic and reason. The Law of Gravitation is therefore incomplete.
The Big Bang Theory
One of the most ludicrous theories science ever produced is the Big Bang theory.
The Universe would have produced itself from nothing into something. While materialistic science has no ways to deal with nothing - Zero. Meaning that scientists who 'believe' in this kind of fairytales can join Abrahamists with their believe in miracles.
It has great similarities with the miraculous feeding in the Old Testament. It must have inspired scientists when they cobbled together the Big Bang Theory.
This 'scientific' theory, would explain how the universe arrived at its present state. Relying and believing what their senses told them Hubble, Lemaitre, Einstein, and many other scientists believe the Big Bang theory postulates that the universe emerged 13.7 billion years ago with a Big Explosion out of materialistic nothing.
Scientists say that scientific laws break down in the singularity, that is, before the Big Bang. So...before the Big Bang there were no laws...they say. Of course. That shows that science tries to define the truth from a materialistic point of view, and that results in the most ludicrous theories. Theories they actually believe in.
Evolution and Natural Selection
According to most scientists all life on Earth has a common ancestor. All life on Earth would have started from something as Trilobites. This is not totally illogical though, regarded from the point of view that all life evolves cyclic into higher states of conscious awareness.
But the believe that live evolves randomly is so utterly primitive, that it's hard to believe that any rationalist can support this theory.
Darwin knew he had a huge problem in his theory The Origin of Species. That was the 'Cambrian Explosion', a dense concentration of species in a particular layer. But Darwin 'believed' this problem would be solved in the future, as scientists would find more even distributions of species through the earth's layers, that would support his ideas.
Up to this day evidence for Darwin's theory is never found.
Meaning that the theory of Darwin is not scientifically and based upon faith, preoccupations, assumptions and hope.
And that's precisely the definition of a religion. Materialistic science originated from Abrahamism, is sensory oriented and is therefore irrational.
Theory of General Relativity
Einstein's theory of general relativity claims that space and time are not absolute and that gravity is not simply a force applied to an object or mass. Gravity associated with mass would curve space and time around the mass of the objects.
This has consequences for the Newtonian theory. The representation of Newton's theory is conflicting with Einstein's. The mathematical equation of Newton happens to lead to the right outcome, at least in our Solar System, as far as we know.
Einstein's theory laid the theoretical foundations for black holes, that now may not exist afterall, according to Stephen Hawkins. Einstein 'believed' Black Holes were possible based upon his theory.
Einstein's theory is a mix of pure reason, experiment and observation. It still cannot be regarded as pure mathematical reason, and leans on the 'faith' that things are as they seem through our senses.
Relativity leads to the most absurd situations, and wants us to believe that the Universe is a crazy irrational place. But is it? No. What almost no one knows, is that Einstein knew, based upon new intuitive insights, at the end of his life that he was wrong. But no one listened to him anymore, like an arrow that was already launched from the arch.
The Big Bang
Cherry on the cake is Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. With the introduction of this theory in 1927 science became only more confused.
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that it is not possible to simultaneously know two properties of a particle. Only one of the two properties can be known - only the position of an electron or only the momentum of an electron. Not both at the same time.
This shows there is something wrong in the representation of matter as the basis of all existence. As if the Universe is an insane asylum. It precisely shows there is something underneath matter - and that is the Spirit.
Later, Niels Bohr explained this with the wave-particle duality. By posing that position is material and momentum a waveform, the problem seemed to be solved, laying the foundation for Quantum Mechanics, representing the Universe as a dead mechanical clockwork.
No matter how brilliant theoretical physics may seem in trying to solve the mysteries of the Universe, these are hopeless attempts that will be overthrown by other versions of theories, again, and again, and again... showing there's something wrong in the core...
There is no escape from a black hole in classical theory. Quantum theory, however, enables energy and information to escape from a black hole...The correct treatment, remains a mystery.— Stephen Hawkins
Finally - There Are no Black Holes
Most surprising, Stephen Hawkins came recently with a new theory that Black Holes don't exist.
This proves that scientific theories are thrown over and over again, and therefore that the basics of materialistic science is incorrect. For about hundred years most people 'believed' in the existence of Black Holes. Now people must start to 'believe' in something else.
This is also one of the reasons that science will never find the Holy Grail - the theory of everything, because scientists worship matter and experimental proof, and reject the Spirit, because the Spirit can not be subjected to experiments.
Scientists will therefore always be confronted with mysteries, due to their materialistic logic and reason. Blind 'faith' in science is the only way to continue in this blind alley.
Ultimately did science originate from Abrahamism. It didn't yet escape irrationalism and conformism. Science is the Guru, and the scientists are its disciples.
The Spirit is the basis of everything, and everything is Spirit. From every Human being down to every stone or grain of sand. Everything has a Monad - a Soul.
This is the Holy Grail - the Theory of Everything as proven by Mathematics. Mathematics is the only true science.
The Theory of Everything is already provided by great philosophers and mathematics like Leibniz, Euler, Dirac, Fourier, Riemann, Teilhard, Kant, Nietzsche and many others.
The answers provided by these great thinkers are overpowered by the biased noise produced by the successful materialistic scientists.
Scientists made 'sensorialism' and experimentalism the criterion of what exists or not exists. This makes science a vulnerable believe system and no true science at all.
