Why Buddhism Need Not Be Scientific?

What I think the Maha Thera is saying in short:
The shortcomings of 'scientism', human happiness and where science stops, Buddhism picks up, goes forward and beyond from there...
What do you think?

Master Huiguo told me,
'If you know your own mind (just as it really is), you know the Buddha's mind.
If you know the Buddha's mind, you know the minds of all beings.
Knowing the identity of these three minds is Great Awakening.'

As long as 'scientism' is firmly materialistic, as it has been for some time, then there is no bridge possible.
Wholesome virtuous behavior progressively leads to the foremost. -- Buddha
