Buddhism falls before the might of scientific inquiry!

Another one bites the dust. Soon there'll be no religions left that science can't explain. Thank God Sir Francis Bacon came along and we all discovered that the dead don't raise...

I'm reminded of something Kierkegaard said:
... If the natural sciences had been developed in Socrates's day as they are now, all the sophists would have been scientists. One would have hung a microscope outside his shop in order to attract custom, and then would have had a sign painted saying: "Learn and see through a giant microscope how a man thinks" (and on reading the advertisement Socrates would have said: "that is how men who do not think behave").

S.K.'s Journals, 1846
