There is no doubt that modern science has made enormous advancements that have significantly improved all aspects of our lives in amazing ways. From Technological advancements to breakthroughs in medical science. I just read promising research in the fight against cancer: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/06/100610141042.htm).
Yet despite our "advancement", somehow our suffering continues. Science teaches us that is taboo to ask fundamental Why questions. Why are we suffering in the first place? Why do we continue to suffer? This they have no answer. They say, this is not a scientific question, you have to go to philosophy for this -- but then accepting some philosophy is inferior to the media supported worldview that only science and scientific evidence approved by the mainstream scientific body is the highest a source of truth and reality.
So why despite living in a prosperous nation we continue to degrade in our consciousness and lose the ability to control our mind and senses? e.g. Obesity in the US: http://www.latimes.com/health/boostershots/la-heb-obesity-rates-prediction-20110826,0,6152399.story
It is because if we continue to place our faith solely in the authority of science, we will remain limited in our understanding of reality. We will fail to recognize the superior wisdom of ancient authority and we will fail to solve the real problems of life: Degradation of consciousness which only perpetuates our sufferings in this life and the next.
Whats the solution? How do get this something that science is failing to provide: Purification of our consciousness.
