O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

The development of any limb of a human being is desirable as it grows from the childhood onwards. But, the growth of any limb should be within the proper limits. The growth of the finger should not be equal to the growth of the leg. Similarly, the development of science should not cross the proper limits so that there is no harm to the global environment and the health of humanity. In ancient India, sages also developed sciences. But, the sages were strong devotees of God and hence, the development of the research in science and technology did not cross the limits of danger by the grace of God.

For example, let us take the ancient system of herbal medicines (Ayurveda). All these medicines were effective in controlling the corresponding diseases. At the same time, there was no side reaction to lead to another disease and no medicine damaged the tissue cells. The medicines were active in developing the resistance of the body to disease. Almost, no medicine was directly involved in attacking the disease. Today, the modern medicines are directly involved in attacking the disease and as a result, the resistance of the body decreases and the tissue cells get damaged by the negative effects of the medicines. What is the reason for this difference? The research in medical science in ancient India was under the supervision of God so that unwarranted sides were blocked.

Today, the scientists develop the research in very fast way without the supervision of God. The scientists neglect God and slowly become the atheists, who negate God. Negligence in course of time becomes negation. Therefore, the development of science in the directions of safety of the humanity is very important. My criticism, about the dangerous directions of the growth of science and technology, should not lead to the conclusion that I am against the development of science and technology. I am a scientist, who worked in the Institution of Technology throughout My life period. In fact, the knowledge of science was given by God (Vedaah shaastraani vijnanam etat sravam janaardanaat…).

The knowledge of science and technology was used in ancient India for earning livelihood in various professions. The growth of science was limited so that the natural balance was not disturbed. For example, there were no synthetic chemical fertilizers. Only natural fertilizers like cow dung, etc. were used. The knowledge that the crop requires fertilizer was known, but, too much research leading to the manufacture of chemicals acting as fertilizers was not there. There was no danger to health due to natural fertilizers. But, there is a lot of danger to health due to the toxins entering the body from the present fertilizers.

Therefore, in those days, research in science never developed in the harmful direction due to the grace of God. Today, a scientist does not like the name of God thinking that God is unaware of science! When you neglect God, He keeps silent about the research in science without any interference. As a result, science developed in all the ways without any supernatural control so that the ecological balance is disturbed.

The Fool: lets grant that this is true.

Scientific Development To Be Under Limits

The Fool: nothing follows from that!!
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

The old herbal medicines 1) Didn't work as effectively 2) Still would weaken the body in many cases. Vaccines don't weaken the body: they specifically strengthen it.

But all of this seems to be a case of "science is too successful, and it's making people not believe in God". That doesn't really follow too well.

The Fool: I have practices philosophy quite well and I think alot of the answer are in science. Not just he science now, its incomplete but philosophers of science seek to improve it, and evolve it. It doensn't just have to be physical knowledge.
