And you know they do this ? How? What expertise have you to make such a sweeping claim? 'The Serengeti Rules' by Sean Carroll is a good example of how scientists do quite the opposite of trying to put things in boxes; they extend knowledge, search for evidence to increase knowledge, use new equipment to look again at, for example, fossilised bones, particularly teeth, because they can now find out more about the person's or animal's diet and health from the microscopic plaque remaining.Quote
I wonder how long it will take for science to give up trying to fit materialism into a box?
There are scientists who turn away from the rigour of the scientific method and jump on the bandwagon of people's beliefs in mysticism etc. For them, making money becomes perhaps their priority, but who knows.
Think what a huge step forward could be made in knowledge and a world-wide awareness of objective reality if the leaders of the world's major religions actually allowed their beliefs to be examined following the scientific method. Well, they will never do it and why? Because their foundation would quickly crumble away beneath them and they would eventually have to acknowledge they haven't one scrap of reality to stand on or to back them up and would appear to be fools, also to be making false claims. And in fact to have been perpetrating lies and untruths ... and what would they say then? That they had been doing it for the good of the people? Because they actually believed the stuff they are saying, about resurrection, heaven, etc? Well, how can the perpetuation of such false beliefs be for the good of anyone?
