Faith is a journey from hypothesis to evidence

Material Science Model

Bhagavad Gita Science Model

Faith is the pathway or method interconnecting hypothesis and evidence. Travelling this pathway or method takes time. This is true for both material science and Bhagavad Gita science which implies there is faith involved in material science as well. The only difference is the length of time.

In material science, the time between evidence and hypothesis setting is relatively small, in comparison the time between evidence and hypothesis related to Bhagavad Gita is very long. Therefore patience is one of the principal principles of Bhagavad Gita.

Dogma on the other hand just has a hypothesis but no clear pathway or method towards evidence. In reality as we experience daily, there is no operating system that exists with just hypothetical statements where no clear pathway to gathering evidence is laid out. So why should religion operate on such an open ended path? Henceforth, today we have so many religions and religious postulates which are at loggerhead with each other.

Anyone who is aspiring to understand the metaphysical aspect of life should have a sound hypothesis followed by a clear path towards gathering evidence with an experienced teacher guiding us and also have references from pantheon of experts before us. All these principles are found in modern science and hence majority if not all people trust and follow modern science.

What people don't know is that all these principles are also laid out in Bhagavad Gita where the subject of the Supreme Absolute Truth is dealt.

Try the Gita path, surely you will not be disappointed.

Hare Krishna.
