      hello ,

      Doesn’t the Pali Cannon speak of Mount Sumeru?
      if, yes, it does not go in contradiction with the knowledge of current science?

      Yes. There are several issues where CURRENT science does not agree with Buddha Dhamma.

      But the number of such disagreements have shrunk over the past few hundreds of years.
      – In each case, science came to agree with Buddha Dhamma.
      – The track record is on the side of Buddha Dhamma.

      I have discussed this in several posts. See the recent post, “Interpretation of the Tipitaka – Gandhabba Example
      – Especially see #7, #8 and the references in #8.
