I do agree that sometimes it is not good to blindly believe in everything that we are told or anything that "resonates" with us. A part of this information is truthful, but another part is illusional. We have parts of truth and parts of illusion so it is good to know that we are not always right. Sometimes we learn new things and sometimes we find out that what we thought was real, is not. Its ok.
However, I may be wrong of course, but I do see a strong trend in the scientific and extremely logical people to deny everything that they cannot see or understand. Talk to them about anything esoteric, inner power, law of attraction, spirits, ghosts, alien civilizations, etc and they just deny it all. Not everyone, some people are in the middle. But a lot of people deny everything that their eyes cannot see. Is this not illusional too though?
I believe its good to reach a point of balance and to be open minded, to take information with a bit of "salt". But I also believe one of the most important things in life is to be able to trust yourself and your instincts, again, knowing that you may be wrong sometimes.
In my opinion, scientists should not claim to know the absolute truth on everything because they themselves have also been proven wrong sometimes in the past. They are human and their research and observations are human, subject to illusions as well. They make experiments, observations and get their conclusions. All this is human, prone to mistakes. Life itself is not so different from that. When a person is gaining inner wisdom, something similar happens: There are experiments: Life experiences, actions and their results - There are observations: Our perception on life and things - There are conclusions: We get conclusions and apply them as inner knowledge, the idea of reality and of ourselves.
In both cases we are prone to make mistakes.
In my opinion, the most risky mistake may be to put all your faith on the scientific information that is given to us, without questioning any of it. That is what I call being narrow minded. That is what I call to live inside a box created by others. A free thinker is a free thinker.
Most of the information which is provided to us as the truth is manipulated by beings who are not interested in the well-being of humanity. This is the information that a lot of people blindly believe in and the result is an un-balanced society which lacks happiness, freedom of being and authenticity. Some became robots for the system. And if you tell them that they have the inner potential to break free and to authentic, then they will call you delusional, a dreamer, naive or stupid.
Not everyone is the same, specially now during these times we are living in. But this is my perception about a lot of people.
I do know that science has left value, specially in technology. The value is there and its good their effort in improving society in some ways (but also using science and technology to destroy the planet along with ourselves as well). But it has its flaws, just like many other entities.
Eventually we will see that there is too much out there for us to learn. There is too much that we dont know, that we dont understand and that still is real and is happening. Eventually we will break the egg and see new light that we didnt know existed.
