    If you google the following title, you will get a better understanding of what the Vedic teachings are about.

    Title. (Richard L. Thomson - Science from the Vedic Perspective.) audio lectures.

    Richard L Thomson has degrees in many departments of science, including mathematics and quantum physics.(and follows the Vedanta teachings for spiritual advancement)

    Now before 20 people respond, and say that your not going to do that, I dont mind one way or the other, but if there is one person out there who may be interested, then this is for him/her.

    What would make Vedic teachings any more scientific than say, Islam or Judaism?

    No religion is scientific in its very nature. The religion part of any religion cannot ever be scientific.

    But I rather have this entire thread be moved to Spiritual Forum.

    Islam and Judaism, teach superstition and error.

    Vedanta teacings have the highest truth, and do not deal in error.

    When this christian science, as you call it, scientifically prove the existence of their god, the cornerstone of christianity, then I will change my mind.

    Atomic theory is science based upon existance of atoms, as christianity is based upon the religious belief that there is a god. But guess what, the existance of atoms is proved. Therefore atomic theroy has a good scientific foundation. Christian science has not.

    Please - whenever you call a religion a science, plese present the proof of the existance of their god. Hell, the abundance of christian movements proves that the foundation of this religion is very lose. Which is okay for a religion, but not for a science.

    From Wikipedia:
    Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge"😉 is an enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the natural world.

    Even the 'science of cooking' and 'science of politics' basically follow the same formula ie they study a topic via scientific principles.
    To simple call something science (as you have done with the Vedic teachings) does not make it science. All it is is an attempt to use the word 'science' to give the teachings greater credibility. Sadly, the actual effect is to remove all credibility is the immediate response it to treat them as 'junk science'.

    I have responded to this accusation in a previous post, and I will repeat.

    The subject matter of the spiritual experiment is your own consciousness, and you apply spiritual principles and practices to to yourself and you observe the raising of consciousness.

    The principle is the same, but the item of experimentation is different.

    Now you know, so we wont talk about this again. OK

    Well clearly 'spiritual principles' and 'scientific principles' are not the same thing. Call it spirituality if you like, but science it is not.

    No, the principles are not the same.

    Refusing to discuss something is always your way when you know you are wrong.
