In a scientific worldview that believes that the only reality is what we can grasp with our senses,
It causes the material world to take on a much exaggerated importance;
Since the material world does not feed the spirit, we continue to grab for more and more;
As we lose the riches of the unseen, we have less and less.

The Church has opposed every innovation and discovery from the day of Galileo down to our own time, when the use of Anesthetics in childbirth was regarded as a sin because it avoided the biblical curse pronounced against Eve.
