The knowledge of unimaginable God can be established only on knowing the science intensively

Science is the knowledge of the world (Vijnanam) and is unaware of God and hence, science can be also treated as ignorance (Avidya). Though science cannot speak about God, it can disprove the awareness as non-God item of creation. The Advaita philosopher, who does not know this ignorance (Science) mistakes awareness as God. Therefore, the knowledge of unimaginable God can be established only on knowing the science intensively, which can prove all the non-God items as non-God items only.

What science are u referring to ? Are u referring to modern science ? The greatest scientists of our day had no knowledge of unimaginable God or any God for that matter. I think knowledge of Science is needed to understand the objective world. To know God science is of little value I feel.

Science is not above Lord

Everywhere the universal perception should be the basis of authority
In that case science is also satisfied because scientists believe this only
Knowledge should be scientific, and then only it can be systematic
Of course the Lord is above the science, which is the logic in this world
But you are not above the science and your ways must be scientific
You must detect the Lord who is above the science through scientific ways only
Science is the nature and through the natural rules only you can catch the Lord
You cannot catch the Lord directly because you are not above the nature
You are a part of the nature and therefore your ways cannot be supernatural.
When it is impossible to adopt the ways above the nature
How can you catch the Lord who is beyond this nature?
Nature is creation and the Lord is the creator
Creator is beyond the creation as we can see in the world itself
The pot maker is different from the pot and therefore stick to nature
Infact owing to this limitation of yourself, the Lord is coming down
He enters the best part of the nature, which is the human being
The word Brahman means the best; human being is the best in the world
Therefore human beings is called Brahman within the boundary of the world
Brahman is greater than the greatest and therefore is the ultimate greatest.
When such Brahman enters the world, He will enter the best part only
When the king enters the town, he enters the best house in the town.
He cannot enter a worst hut, which is below his dignity.
Therefore Brahman can never enter any inert object, which is the lowest
Brahman also will not enter trees birds and animals because
They are higher than the inert object but not the highest.
The advaita scholars are mislead at this juncture because
When it is told that the human being is Brahman, they understood
That the human being is the ultimate highest, but it is not so,
This is the reason why the Lord is called Para Brahman
Para Brahman means greater than Brahman that is greater than the human being
You can experience Him through the human incarnation
Thus you’re experiencing Him through nature and everything is setup
