Jai Srila Prabhupada.
We have to understand the purpose of the Acaryas for appearing in this world before we embark on analyzing them. Their only purpose is to present Krishna Consciousness through Srimad Bhagavatham because it is the essence of all vedic literatures and it speaks only about Sri Krishna and His exploits. For more details about the creation of the universe and its creatures, one may study other branches of vedas. However, our Acharyas are not interested in wasting valuable time in analyzing this material creation rather their purpose is to make us all Krishna Consciousness and for this reason they have only focused on and about Krishna. This is what Srila Prabhupada wanted us to do, focus on Krishna and nothing else. He wanted us to have faith in the shastras especially Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatham Sri Chaitanya Charitamrta. If someone has more time after thinking about Krishna 24 hrs i think they should be allowed to study other aspect of vedas to find out more details about the universe and its creations. It is better to understand what Srila Prabhupada wants us to do then finding out what the scientists are doing? If someone is interested in comparing vedas and science for strengthening one‚Äôs own faith, by all means one should do. Life is short in Kaliyuga, better one should try to understand the essence of the vedas instead of going through the entire vedic literatures and that is what Srila Prabhupada gave, the essence of vedas, Krishna Consciousness. Empiric study is all right if one lacks faith in the Acaryas and their words however, spiritual matters and Sri Krishna cannot be understood through empiric study. Only when the Supreme Lord within us establishes that we have developed enough faith in Him then only He will give us the intelligence to understand Him until then He will let us get baffled by His Own Divine Nature.
Daivi hy esa gunamayi

mam eva ye prapadyante
mayam etam taranti te
This divine energy of Mine, consisting of the three modes of material nature, is difficult to overcome. But those who have surrendered unto Me can easily cross beyond it. BG 7.14
mat prasadat tarisyasi
atha cet tvam ahankaran
na srosyasi vinanksyasi
If you become conscious of Me, you will pass over all the obstacles of conditional life by My grace. If, however, you do not work in such consciousness but act through false ego, not hearing Me, you will be lost. BG 18.58
