How Falun Gong looks at science

2009-04-08 Author:China Association for Cultic Studies

Falun Gong propagates that science has brought disasters such as moral degeneration to human beings.


Li said: "The new generation raised on modern science dauntlessly kills, commits arson, and does bad things...This is the biggest disaster that science has brought to us." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Europe)


"Because of its shallowness, this science has caused the degeneration of morality in human society." (Teaching the Fa in San Francisco)


In the eyes of Li Hongzhi, science is a religion, and a cult.


Li claimed: "Science is a religion too, and it's a well-established religion." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Europe)


"Why is it a religion, and why is it a comprehensiveone? The reason is, it neither pays attention to virtue nor recognizes the existence of gods, and since it can't see the existence of gods." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Switzerland)


"This science is attacking human beings' best side: their innate quality of being truly kindhearted. It doesn't tell people to cherish virtue, nor does it tell people to be kind. It encourages people to unleash all their desires, destroying the environment that man needs in order to exist, along with the innate nature and standards for mankind. On this note, science is not an upright religion." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Europe)


Falun Gong denies science, scientific achievements and attacks scientists.


Li Hongzhi said: "Humankind's modern science has in fact developed on a wrong foundation, with a wrong understanding of the universe, humankind, and life."(Teaching the Fa in San Francisco)


"Today's science has been imposed on humankind by alien beings." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Singapore)


"It was they who created science for human beings. So this science was set up by aliens." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Switzerland)


"Darwin's theory of evolution is full of holes...And this is the current civilization's worst disgrace and scandal." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Europe)


While repeatedly belittling science, Li Hongzhi disguises himself as "the greatest scientist" and calls his Falun Gong the most abstruse and "supernatural" science.


"I've been tested, too, and they found that I emit gamma rays and thermal neutrons 80-170 times greater than the radiation of normal matter." (Zhuan Falun)


"Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences once conducted tests on me to come up with an appraisal...During the test, they found that the energies I emitted contained strong neutrons as well as atoms...What surprised them was that the energy fields I emitted were evenly distributed and the energy could be directed." (Teaching the Fa at the Founding Ceremony of the Singaporean Falun Dafa Association, July 1996)


"Only Buddhas are the greatest scientists." (Lecture in Sydney)


"The Buddha Fa is the most profound; among all the theories in the world, it is the most intricate and extraordinary science." (Zhuan Falun)
