This Seems To Be Anti-astronomy

Buddhism according to Glenn:

"To engage in fruitless cosmological speculations instead of working on the practical issue of suffering and the liberation from suffering would be like getting shot and while bleeding to death refusing to go to the hospital for treatment until you knew who shot you, why they shot you, what kind of gun they used, what kind of bullet etc... "

If we were to follow Buudhism, the recent launch of the gravity probe would never happen. There would be no reason for astronomy which discovered dark matter and dark energy. There would be no goal to understand the fundamentals of the universe. For me that is anti-science
