  Actually, if you study the development of Western science they have 
  spent hundreds (not thousands, Western science is not that old) of 
  years DISPROVING the previous scientists. Try and find a science 
  text-book from 50 years ago and you will see what I mean. It will sound
  a little silly today. Western science is like that, its not the 
  absolute truth, it's just ideas which try to explain what we see. If the
  ideas seem to match what we observe then the idea becomes part of
  science. But it may not be correct, even the scientists accept this.
  Every scientific theory is subject to being changed if someone finds
  some evidence to disprove it.

  We have a different sort of science. The Western scientists spend (as
  you have said) hundreds and thousands of years proving and disproving
  their theories but they're still not really sure if they are right or
  not! Krishna consciousness, on the other hand, accepts the knowledge
  given by Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This is absolute
  knowledge, it doesn't change with time, it is always correct. Krishna
  is God, He is all-knowing so He knows what He is talking about. He
  doesn't have to experiment to find out things. So devotees save a lot
  of time and energy by simply accepting what Krishna says. The
  scientists will also [eventually] come to the same conclusion but it
  may take them a very long time.

  Hare Krishna.

Thank you. Hare Krishna!
