Science Without Borders

Can you imagine a Christian or Muslim leader telling his followers that if science ever showed something they believed was wrong, they'd have to change their beliefs? I can't. But that's exactly what the Dalai Lama says.

"My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."
