Dude people. The meaning of this song is not fucking complicated. It is not saying that science is in some way inferior to religion or some such nonsense. What it's saying is that for all of mankind's scientific advancements, we have used our resources only for destruction. We have done nothing to advance ourselves in a spiritual or healthy manner, and only used our knowledge for destruction. It is not bashing science. It's speaking in a satirical manner on the matter of humanity's USE of science thus far.

And the song is also spiritual. They're also talking about how science has failed to understand the single most fundamental principle of human existence; consciousness. All scientific attempts to explain the nature of consciousness are purely theoretical and have not been empirically nor irrefutably proven.

I love this system of a down cover
I think people fail to recognize the actual message portrayed in this song. They are talking about how most scientific advancements that are made today are only designed to further exploit and ultimately destroy Earth all in the name of greed. Oh, and we're also constantly searching for more efficient ways of killing one another. They're not speaking ill of science as a whole because I know Ronnie especially loves science. He only disagrees with the direction it seems to have taken.
