Scientist: Falun Gong complete superstition
Falun Gong is absolutely superstition, not a
science, a Chinese scientist has said.
Yusheng, a research fellow in natural sciences with the
Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), made the remarks in
response to the puffery about Falun Gong in a Chinese
newspaper published in the United States.
newspaper recently carried an article titled "Not
Superstition, but Profound Science," bearing the names
of some Falun Gong practitioners at CAS. It claimed to be a
"scientific paper" with a dozen references.
Wang said that it is really too bad that the
newspaper commended the cult, and the paper used words even
stranger than science fiction to demonstrate the
"profundity" of Falun Gong.
Hongzhi, the founder of the cult, has said that there are
second and third layers of our universe, and he said he
himself represents the top layer, while all other human
beings are rubbish that have fallen to the Earth; and the
Earth will burst on a regular basis.
that Li Hongzhi does not know the physical and philosophic
meanings of the universe at all and cannot provide any
evidence for the "other space" theory.
Li denied all the achievements made by
Copernicus, Wang said.
The article provided
names of some Falun Gong practitioners at CAS in a move to
spread its "scientific theory."
According to the article, biological death
represents the end, but in fact it is just a natural
diversifying process of evolution, Wang said.
Scientists have never claimed to know all the
answers, but they have opened a way to know about the truth
through practice. Darwin's theory of evolution and other
theories on the origin of the human beings are already
enough to bury Li Hongzhi's ideas, regardless of the fact
that they are absolutely untrue, he said.
article said that it is completely reasonable in scientific
terms that the practice of Falun Gong can lead to immense
changes in the human body, but it did not say how, Wang
Instead, he added, it is a known, sad
fact that Falun Gong has claimed a large number of lives,
destroyed many families and caused social instability in
Wang also emphasized that the cult is a
new horror, a most serious harm to people's political and
spiritual rights and a profanity of human civilization.
He expressed his hope that people will not
take part in inglorious political activities in the name of
a cult, and that the media will be a voice for justness.
