    No. Scientists would be out of a job if we already knew everything. Research of all kinds pushes at the borders of what is known, gradually expanding them.

    The beauty of conspiracy theories is that where no evidence exists, you can always claim that it has been "suppressed".

    No evidence of leprechauns? The Illuminati don't want you to know about them.

    It's called electricity. Look it up, sometime.

    Meanwhile, if you meet the Buddha on the road, y'know?

    Science isn't a person. It's just a tool or process. It makes no sense to say that "Science" wants you to think something.

    That is just your bias. Science is a process to explain what there is evidence for. When something is unknown then that's outside of science until there is some evidence.

    You just seem to have a problem with subjects for which there is evidence and with where that evidence leads.

    If we are talking about evolution (for instance) all the evidence leads in that direction. You may want it to point to God but it doesn't.

    If we are talking about ghosts. That is outside of science until such time that there is some evidence for the existence of ghosts.

    There is no "mainstream" science and science outside the mainstream.
