Origin: Middle English (denoting knowledge): from Old French, from Latin scientia, from scire 'know'

John Ernst Worrell Keely
"I believe that the dawn is fast approaching when all scepticism will be wiped from off the face of the earth, and true science will become the religion of the world." [John Ernst Worrell Keely]

"The masses have never thirsted after truth. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim." [Gustave Le Bon]

Nikola Tesla
"Our work, to be the best, must be like that of the planter - for the future! And full of self-denial and nobility of purpose. Its reward, when it finally comes, is all the sweeter, because it was long deferred. Selfish instincts and desires hamper every better development in Nature. The scientific man does not look for a reward. He does not expect his advanced ideas to be readily taken up. His work is like that of a planter. For the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way! [Nikola Tesla]

Modern science has its feet (belief) stuck in atheistic materialism and wholly ignores the Causative Forces making it all up and governing its activities.

"Science, as will be seen, embraces religion, and must become, as Keely asserts, the religion of the world, when it is made known in all its glory and grandeur, sweeping away all foot-holds for scepticism, and spreading the knowledge of God, as a God of love, until this knowledge covers the earth as the waters cover the sea. As has been said, the word science, in its largest signification, includes intellectual achievement in every direction open to the mind, and the co-ordination of the results in a progressive philosophy of life. Philosophy has been defined as the science of causes or of first principles, and should be limited, almost exclusively, to the mental sciences. This is the field which Keely is exploring; the knowledge of the "hidden things" which he is bringing to the light is pure philosophical knowledge, in the widest acceptation of the term: the knowledge of effects as dependent on their causes." [Bloomfield-Moore, More Science]

Robert Anton Wilson
"Every fact of science was once damned.
Every invention was considered impossible.
Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy.
Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly.
The entire web of culture and progress, everything on Earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some men's refusal to bow to Authority.
We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent.
As Oscar Wilde truly said, "Disobedience was man's Original Virtue." Wikipedia, Robert Anton Wilson

Freeman Dyson
"The public has a distorted view of science because children are taught in school that science is a collection of firmly established truths. In fact, science is not a collection of truths. It is a continuing exploration of mysteries." [Freeman Dyson]

"The word science represents the name of the process by which man arrives at a truth, while the process itself is science." Quimby

"What has a man to contend with who undertakes to establish a new science? He has the opposition of all the former opinions of the world in regard to it, and all their influence. He will be misunderstood by fools and misrepresented by knaves, for his science will tear down their fortress or belief and they will use all their skill and deception to defeat their enemy. Their weapon is their tongue, and the tongue of a hypocrite is of all weapons the most deadly to truth: for it can assume the voice form of an angel while it is sapping your very life's blood from your soul. It's life and happiness are its own torment. Ever since the world began, science has had this enemy to contend with, and some very hard battles have been fought before error would leave the field." [Dr. P. P. Quimby]

If Science Rules, Life and Happiness is the reward

"A man may be scientific in many sciences, mathematics, chemistry, astronomy - all that are acknowledged and admitted by even the Natural Man, though not understood. But the Science of Happiness is not acknowledged by the wisdom of the five senses. It requires more senses to put men in possession of this Science that will teach him happiness. As happiness is what follows a belief, it is necessary to know whether our wisdom is of this world of opinion or of the world of Science.

"This world sees nothing outside of its senses. Wisdom sees nothing of the natural man's senses but ignorance, so that the wisdom of this world is opposed to the Science of Happiness.

"I wish to make you understand these two characters: Science and opinions. See which you follow: for you must follow one. You cannot serve both at the same time. If you serve Science, you are in your wisdom and know it. If you serve opinion, you have no wisdom, but your life is in a belief that can be destroyed.

"The two worlds may be divided in this way: One opinions - the other Science.

"Opinions are matter or the shadow of Science. One is limited in its sphere, And the other knows no limits.

"The one is today, and tomorrow is not. The other is an endless progression.

"The one is always changing, The other is always progressing.

"If we know the true meaning of every word or thought we should know what will follow. So a person cannot scientifically act amiss. But being misled by public opinion, we believe a lie and suffer.

"How do I know I have got hold of a true method? How do I know I am not mistaken?

"There are many reasons which confirm my method as a science. One is that I constantly improve it. I find I can cure more quickly, and harder cases.

"To teach Science is to put it in practice so that the world shall be put in possession of a truth that shall be acknowledged above the Natural Man.

"By establishing the law of science we destroy the law of ignorance. To introduce a Science that explains the errors that keep us in trouble is what the prophets foretold, and wise men have looked for ever since the world began.

"By the gospel of Truth, Science will have all saved, - not from the Christian world, but from this world of superstition and ignorance, saved for the greater truth that was prepared from the beginning of the world for all those who search and try to find it.

"You cannot go into the clouds to call it down, nor into the sea to call it up, but it is in you, in your very thoughts. It is not of this world, but of a higher state, that can penetrate this earthly matter as light through darkness.

"In mathematics, chemistry and all the arts and sciences that can be demonstrated, knowledge submits to wisdom, but that part of man's senses attached to knowledge that is not subject to science is in ascendancy in religion, disease, and politics. These are false sciences based on opinions. They are the same that Jesus denounced as false prophets, evil and blind guides who deceived the people.

"Astronomy has destroyed some of the hideous features of religion and introduced a happier state of society, but it was not the design of astronomy to destroy religion.

"Still it is the natural result of science to destroy error and prejudice.

"Now it is not to be expected that every person who happens to think of flying can make a flying machine that will be successful. Nor is it certain that any invention to control the elements will always work so that accidents as they are called will not take place and lives lost and much trouble made before Science is established.

"Science, like an under-current, is deep and strong. And as its tide advances, it will sweep away the foundations of aristocracy. Revolutions must come, and no man can tell what will be the end of this generation. But Science will work out the problem of universal freedom to the oppressed in body and mind.

"All Science is spiritual and is not known by the priests and demogogues or doctors. The theories of these three classes are not based on wisdom but on opinions.

"Now Jesus cured the sick and said if they understood Him they might do the same. We want a theory like that of Jesus not of talk but of works, for a theory that cannot be put into practice is worthless.

"Every science has its standard, based on actual knowledge, not on opinion. They prove their wisdom by their works.

"Science cannot admit what cannot be proved.

"Error is a wilderness filled with all kinds of superstition. Science is the axe in the hands of Wisdom to hew down the wilderness and destroy its inhabitants and introduce a better state of society.

"The world of opinions is the old world. That of Science is the new, and a separation must take place and a battle fought between them. The world of error and opinions has held Science in bondage ever since man began to be independent of savage life.

"Ideas come forth and the minds are affected, and try for the prize. For instance, the idea of navigating the air. All minds are excited. Experiments are tried; accidents, as they are called, happen and lives are lost to this world of error.

"But that which governs life cannot be lost, but must mingle in with the idea of progression - not losing its identity. What man loses in weight or matter, he makes up in science of knowledge.

"All Science is a part of God.

"If Science rules, life and happiness are the reward."

Science is Wisdom put into practice."
[from Quimby, The Healing Wisdom]

The World of Science

"What progress has the wisdom of this world made in the world of science? I answer none at all and in making this bold statement I will try and explain what I mean. Ever since the remembrance of man, phenomena have taken place in the world, the origin of which has baffled the skill of the most profound scholars of the age. They see the shadow and treat it as though intelligence was contained in it. Its form, locality and growth has occasioned much doubt and questioning among the people. And the wisdom of this world, not wishing to be considered unable to give satisfaction to the various repeated enquiries, comes forward with all gravity due to the profession to still the troubled waters by presenting the fact to the world in the form of an opinion which says: The problem is beyond the power of man to fathom and in order to give proof that no further investigation may be deemed necessary, he is followed by priestly robes who displays them to the gazing multitude by repeating the psalmist's words, Thy knowledge is too wonderful for me, I cannot attain unto it. And the people with reverential awe say, "Amen." Thus conceived, born and baptized into a belief is man's opinions, and its offspring is the shadow or idea, the life of which is its light; and if its light is darkness or ignorance, then the more fearful and dense is the darkness, and its ignorance or false knowledge, which is seen, makes the shadow or trouble, and the world calls it disease.

"That which is made was made. Then if it was made, it did not make itself but must have been made by a wisdom or knowledge outside, or independent of what was made; and the wisdom that made it must be in what it made, under whose government it lives. If under the government of this world or man's opinions, then the shadow or disease is its offspring. And if man cannot recognize that which he has made and sees, how can he teach his brother man the wisdom of God or science which he has not seen? This world sees nothing without a form and in order to make a form, there must be something to make the form out of. The mind, it is said, changes; therefore it must be matter and is capable of assuming any form or idea it pleases according to the direction given. In wisdom or science there is no matter or form. We cannot see God or wisdom in a form or idea. There is no darkness in it but perfect light which destroys all darkness or shadow by filling all space. A knowledge of it leads this world out of its false ideas or disease to perfect knowledge or health, which is the world of science." [Quimby, January 1864]

“Everyone knows it is harder to unlearn an error than to learn a truth. So Jesus, knowing that a child was free from both, took him as a parable so that the Christian world must give away or get rid of all their errors and become as a little child to receive the Holy Ghost or Science. This was the new birth; therefore to enter into Science or the kingdom of heaven was not a very easy thing. So if anyone said he was born of God or Science let him show it, for many shall come saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many but by their fruits ye shall know them.” [Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, A Defense Against an Accusation of Putting Down Religion, page 196]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"There is nothing that electromagnetism has brought into visible being which the human mind can deem to be lacking purpose or meaning.
Science ignores this most basic and vital level of creation. Without an answer to this question, as to why everything which has been brought into visible manifestation by the activity of the twin energies of electromagnetism is invariably purposeful, successful and rational - nothing of any value in the search for your origins will be discovered.
Until science can probe and discover the 'Reality' of the 'space' in which electrical particles of 'visible being' are supported, science will forever remain behind locked doors of materialism. It will be barred to eternal Truth and universal wisdom and imprisoned within the bondage of reason alone - reason which is solely the product of the finite activity of brain cells.

It is to the true nature of the SPACE I intend to introduce you - but before proceeding to this, I must first bring many highly pertinent questions to your attention." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 8]

"To discover your true SOURCE of BEING, I ask you to take stock of the unimaginable and indescribable complexity and diversity of purposeful work plainly evident in penguins and pigs.
Can the human mind replicate any of the most basic of activities within - say - the digestive system, which swiftly summons up the requisite enzymes and hormones necessary for digestion.
How dare the finite mind, which is incapable of perceiving clearly the true creative process governed by instinctual knowledge, presume to state unequivocally - defying contradiction - that it understands the true origins of creation and the forces out of which creation took form? What arrogance! These men can only think according to what their eyes tell them.
I view the present scientific ignorance with loving compassion, a degree of amusement, and a great all consuming passion to puncture their pride. For, until someone can penetrate their self-satisfaction and position of infallibility, a true mating of Eternal Verities and human scientific knowledge can never take place. But it must take place; otherwise human spiritual evolution will remain at a standstill.
The scientific mind is too full of 'finitely' devised book lore, accepted formulas and equations, and the need for their fellows' approval, to permit mystical penetration by Higher Intelligences.
On my behalf, I ask readers of these Letters, to form an association to challenge Science and ask 'at what point in the evolution of the 'material' world' is CONSCIOUSNESS first discernible?" [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 12]

"Fifthly, I have come expressly to help science bridge the gulf between UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS and the appearance of electrical particles. Without this bridge between the Unseen Spiritual Dimension and the Seen world of 'matter', science will remain rooted in old ideas and concepts instead of moving forward into new realms of spiritual/scientific research for the betterment of mankind." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 15]
