Its so funny, but also sad, that ...[text shortened]... n, since man first appeared on earth millions of years ago.
Vedanta is perfect and faultless.
“...The two biggest mistakes in science are:

Not sure what you are saying here: evolved from which “random accident”? Are you referring to abiogenesis? If so, remember, abiogenesis is NOT evolution. Or are you trying to say that evolution is just a series of accidents? If so, natural selection is not an accident but inevitable.
“...when a little sqizzo, decide to become a man, ...”
Nothing “decided” to become man and science doesn't say it did. Man is not some sort of pinnacle of the evolutionary tree of life but just a side-branch and evolution did not make us evolving into existence inevitable but rather we are just one of an infinite number of possible outcomes.
“...2. Scientists believe that life came from matter,….but it’s the other way around, Life comes from Life....”
If it was always true that “ Life comes from Life” then what did the first life come from?
If it was always true that “ Life comes from Life” then, presumably, there could be no life today.
“...The problems of life are birth, disease, old age and death, and of course crime, poverty, injustice etc, but the scientist are doing nothing to solve these problems....”
Really? Haven't you heard of medical science? Or forensic science? Etc. There are also many scientists trying to find solutions to third-world problems such as malnutrition and malaria etc.
“...Scientists think the problems are that we need bigger tv,s, faster cars, electric toothbrushes etc. ...”
Really? Where did you get this from? I have never heard any scientist say any of these things; have you? -if so, which scientist and when and where? In fact many scientists are saying the exact opposite! -mostly the environmental scientists but others as well.
“...The only way to solve the problems of life is to live the spiritual life, of simple living and higher thinking, and to steer away from alcohol, drugs, meat, and to stop chasing sense gratification as if it were the goal of ones life....”
Science does not say or imply anything about what the “goal” of our lives should be let alone that we should use “alcohol, drugs, meat” etc. (And what have you got against “sense gratification” anyway? Are you against any form of fun? ).
