Science is based on tested proof or empirical evidence. You conduct a test or experiment and then observe the results. Buddhism, similarly, teaches that nothing beats actual proof. In this regard, it stands alone among the religions of the world. I hope that each day you will strive to find what is true for you and your studies. Please always remember that honoring such proof is the mark of true success.
Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.
Peace and Love, Jim
