Debunking that so called Scientific validation of temples!



I am sure that you all would have seen this nonsense on your Facebook walls. It was so funny but there were a lot of people with no critical thinking skills who lapped it all up credulously.
So, this debunking was overdue. Go ahead and laugh till your bellies ache :-)

    Scientific Reasons :
   
||There are thousands of temples all over India in different size, shape and locations ||

Hmmm, okay. So? It just goes to show that there are a lot of credulous believers and that this is a very lucrative business.
 
|| but not all of them are considered to be built the Vedic way. ||

What’s that? Looking at the pic, I guess they must have been thinking of veD*CK way! ;-)

   
|| Generally, a temple should be located at ||

Well, go on…
   
||  a place where earth's magnetic wave path passes through densely. ||

What was that??!!! Is there such a place? “Magnetic wave passing through densely” Just because this sentence sounds SCIENCEy doesn’t make it pertinent! It is simply inane & asinine!
And by the way, what exactly is a "Magnetic Wave"???
[For the kind information of the unsuspecting people who readily accept such things, there is no such entity as a "Magnetic Wave".]
 
|| It can be in the outskirts of a town/village or city, or in middle of the dwelling place, or on a hilltop. ||


No matter where, I bet you there will be a lot of suckers ready to go there to waste precious time, money, energy & emotion! It’s such a sad state of affairs really :-(
    
|| The essence of visiting a temple is discussed here. ||


Ah ha, let’s see what all woo is gonna come forth, shall we? :-)
Folks, let us be prepared for a verbal diarrhea of bullshit :-)
   
|| Now, these temples are located strategically at a place where the positive energy is abundantly available from the magnetic and electric wave distributions of north/south pole thrust. ||


Ha ha ha ha… ROTFLOL!!! Let’s hear that again, shall we? :-) “Where the positive energy is abundantly available from the magnetic and electric wave distributions of north/south pole thrust.”

Let’s try to understand what is meant by this weasel word “Energy”.Borrowing Brian Dunnings’ words-
(from here- http://infactvideo.com/episode/01/05/)
----------------------------------------
“Do you ever hear people talking about energy fields? What does that mean?

Especially when the subject of New Age alternative medicine comes up, you'll often hear people refer to energy fields. Life energy, spiritual energy, the body's energy fields. That sure sounds pretty cool; is it actually a real thing that we can detect and use somehow?
To answer that we have to start by understanding what energy really is. In short, energy is a measurement of something's ability to do work. It's measured in joules, after the 19th century physicist James Joule. Think of Einstein's equation E = mc2. Energy is a function of mass. How much mass you can move a certain distance, is exactly how much energy you have.
The electrical energy in this battery contains enough joules of work to move an electric train a certain distance. If I raise this weight, I input enough joules of potential kinetic energy to break six bones in my foot. That's basically what "energy" is.
But that doesn't seem to match very well with how we hear the word "energy" being used. We're told there are energy fields, that enlightened people can tap into and draw strength from. Like a glowing, hovering cloud of power, how you might envision a highly evolved creature from the original Star Trek series. That's kind of what it sounds like an energy field is. New Age concepts like reiki or feng shui are entirely built upon the presumed existence of such fields.
But the scientific definition of energy seems inadequate to explain these. Why is that? It's because the word "energy" has been hijacked for its scientific-sounding value.
Real energy fields, like the electromagnetic field surrounding a magnet, the heat radiating from a warm body, or the gravitational field around a planet, have definite properties -- and their strength, and thus their energy, can be precisely measured.
On the other hand, New Age energy fields, like your bodies supposed "life energy", have no describable properties, cannot be detected, and do no measurable work. We can't say they don't exist, but since they are undetectable, we can say that their existence has yet to be demonstrated.
When you hear the word "energy" being used in a sales pitch or an advertisement, pay very close attention to how it's being used. If it's anything other than a quantifiable measurement of work, the word is being misused and you are being misled. And now you have the tools to respond.”
-------------------------------------

Okay, let us now get back to the jokes

    || The main idol is placed in the core center of the temple, known as "*Garbhagriha*" or *Moolasthanam*. ||


So??? It just shows the primitive ideas. If you notice, all these ancient, primitive people always talk in terms of fertility- Egg, womb, etc. Because life was so difficult in those days, premature death was common and survival was a daily fight. A lot of uncertainties (just like nowadays) but no knowledge to analyze them! They knew how important fertility was and so venerated fertility.
   
|| In fact, the temple structure is built after the idol has been placed. ||


So??? Does the idol draw all the “Energy” from that place or is it just placed in a place with full of “Energy”? :-) If it is the place that is important, then you accept that the idol is just a dummy; and if you feel that the idol makes the “Energy” then you agree that the place was insignificant to begin with! ;-)
    
|| This *Moolasthanam* is where earth’s magnetic waves are found to be maximum. ||


Oh really? Has anybody measured it? It really is not all that difficult, you know...
http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Elec_p030.shtml
   
|| We know that there are some copper plates, inscribed with Vedic scripts, buried beneath the Main Idol. What are they really? ||


Useless piece of crap! Perhaps, worth only the value of copper (excluding any worth it may have gained as a result of it being an “antique piece”)

   
|| No, they are not God’s / priests’ flash cards when they forget the *shlokas*. ||

Ha ha ha… Just imagine the pimps, I mean priests, hurriedly digging up the plates to mutter their mumbo jumbo which they may have forgotten! Ha ha ha!
Actually, doesn’t matter whatever crap they may spout- whether authentic scriptures or totally made up mumbo jumbo- Those are still crap! :-) Nobody understands them :-) As if the credulous believers care what exactly is being chanted! :-)

   
|| The copper plate absorbs earth’s magnetic waves and radiates it to the surroundings. ||

Really??? No way! You are exposing your profound ignorance! :-) Copper is not attracted to magnets. Iron and perhaps Steel, Cobalt & Nickel are attracted to a magnet. Surely NOT copper plates. Perhaps Copper wire can be turned into a magnet, by passing electrical current; but surely NOT copper plates! :-)


|| Thus a person regularly visiting a temple and walking clockwise around the Main Idol receives the beamed magnetic waves and his body absorbs it. ||

[Oh! Just imagine… Blue (can be any other colour you like) coloured beams of “energy” buzzing out of the idol and engulfing the person who goes around it, BUT only in a clockwise direction! Ha ha ha… Funny & wicked, naa??!!! :-)]

Once again I repeat, human body cannot receive magnetic waves (whatever it may be) and surely the body cannot absorb it! :-) If that was the case, then imagine what would happen during every Magnetic resonance scan! :-)

   
||  This is a very slow process and a regular visit will let him absorb more of this positive energy. ||

Just Shut up, will you?!! Any further use of the vague word “Energy” is going to be met with this standard response! “Energy” used in this way is a weasel word as explained in detail above!

   
|| Scientifically, it is the positive energy that we all require to have a healthy life. ||

“Scientifically”??? This is a flagrant and malevolent misuse of the word science to gain credibility which you know you will never be able to garner otherwise!
   
|| Further, the Sanctum is closed on three sides. ||

Hmm, how I wish that somebody closes it down completely!!! :-)
On a side note, do you realize that it becomes a dangerous place just because of this???


|| This increases the effect of all energies. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!

   
|| The lamp that is lit radiates heat energy and also provides light inside the sanctum to the priests or *poojaris* performing the pooja. ||

I wonder why they need the light and heat. Can’t they just use their divine powers? :-) Why shouldn’t they simply pray to some “Light bagawaan” and “Heat bagawaan” for the same? :-) Perhaps, they know the futility of praying to Agni bagawaan and his powerlessness will be exposed if they resorted ONLY to prayers ;-)
And as explained above, a closed, crowded space with hardly any ventilation and plenty of credulous, deluded and blinded by faith suckers is a dangerous place by any account!

   
|| The ringing of the bells and the chanting of prayers takes a worshipper into trance, thus not letting his mind waver. ||

Wait. It only creates a cacophonic nuisance! It’s only when you have already been brainwashed during impressionable childhood into thinking of it in undeserved high regard that you feel that it takes you into a trance! Just imagine a bemused and irritated Hindu in a mosque/church, or a bemused and irritated Christian in a temple/ mosque, or a bemused and irritated Muslim in a church/ temple… You get the idea, right? :-)

   
|| When done in groups, this helps people forget personal problems for a while and relieve their stress. ||

Ever wondered why the same effect NEVER happens whenever a christian/ muslim/ jew/ atheist enters a temple? Why is it that only the hindu finds the effect in a hindu place of worship???


Typical herd mentality of the credulous believers! Mental mast*rbation ;-) No doubt it might get you on a high! Such gatherings and rituals are sometimes, quite appropriately, called “Serotonin factories.” It might give you a high… But alas! It is a false high! Just a hangover effect of child abuse of childhood indoctrination and cultural imperialism!
   
|| The fragrance from the flowers, the burning of camphor give out the chemical energy further aiding in a different good aura. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!
For fragrance, going to a garden or a park is a far better experience. And camphor fumes are best avoided. It can only harm, can never help! It can cause seizures, hallucinations, confusion, etc!

   
||  The effect of all these energies is supplemented by the positive energy from the idol, the copper plates and utensils in the *Moolasthan*am / *Garbagraham*. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!
Keep using that weasel word, and keep listening to this standard response! :-)

|| *Theertham*, the “holy” water used during the pooja to wash the idol is not plain water cleaning the dust off an idol. ||

Ha ha ha… Of course it is not plain water. It is contaminated water! :-)

   
|| It is a concoction of Cardamom,*Karpura* (Benzoin), zaffron / saffron, *Tulsi* (Holy Basil), Clove, etc... ||

If you want such a concoction, then I bet you that it will be far better and safer to COOK it hygienically in the kitchen! :-)


|| Washing the idol is to charge the water with the magnetic radiations thus increasing its medicinal values. ||

“Charge the water with magnetic radiations” Wow! :-) Such gullibility is truly awesome! Just what exactly is meant by that gem? :-)
As already explained, the idol or even the copper plates are NOT magnetic!
And one cannot just “charge” the water with magnetic radiations!
I challenge you to present a paper on this pet hypothesis of yours for a thorough peer review and scientific analysis! I am sure even you know what will be the outcome! You will be the laughing stock and the butt of ridicule for years to come! :-)

Also, such a water can only CAUSE illness, it can never be medicinal! This is outright medical  quackery which ranks as a highly abominable practice!!!

    
|| Three spoons of this holy water is distributed to devotees. ||

Why only three? :-) Why not 2 or 4 or 5 or 1? Oh wait, we know... if you want more you need to PURCHASE it :-) After all, it’s a very good business of all the temples and other religious places of worship :-)

  || Again, this water is mainly a source of magneto-therapy. ||

Ha ha ha… Magneto-therapy is bullshit!
http://www.sillybeliefs.com/magnets.html

And for some laughs at the expense of those who peddle these wares and those who suck it up gullibly, check this out-



It is another form of quackery and already pointed out, medical quackery is one of the most odious of all charlatanry! Grrrrrr…

|| Besides, the clove essence protects one from tooth decay, the saffron & *Tulsi* leafs protects one from common cold and cough, cardamom and *Pachha Karpuram* (benzoin), act as mouth fresheners. ||

So, why not just take the clove essence to protect from tooth decay? I suggest that it will be far better to just follow regular oral hygienic measures that I bet you will be a lot more effective. And it is tried and definitely tested too :-)
Saffron and Tulsi protect from common cold? :-) Oh lovely! Why not suggest these to all the people who are so paranoid about the common cold and especially against Swine Flu nowadays? After all, the H1N1 is also a common cold causing virus with a Fancy name J Will you be ready to forego vaccination in lieu of this holy “theertham”??? :-)

   
|| It is proved that *Theertham* is a very good blood purifier, as it is highly energized. ||

Just Shut up!!! What the hell do they mean by "blood purification"? It is mainly a job of the Kidneys and the liver. Unless they explain what they mean by such vague terminologies, these claims must be dismissed off contemptuously! And ruthlessly too, for it is dangerous to fool people when it comes to medical and health issues.


|| Hence it is given as *prasadam* to the devotees. ||

The only good prasadam will be the Sundal, Pongal, Paanagham, etc. That too, only in moderation (as with everything else) Certainly NOT this contaminated water!


|| This way, one can claim to remain healthy by regularly visiting the Temples. ||

Going to a temple is ALWAYS a health hazard. As pointed out earlier, it is a crowded, infectious, poorly ventilated, lousily designed for emergency exit, place full of contaminated air, water and food… Not to mention the vitiating atmosphere to young children who get brainwashed!

   
|| This is why our elders used to suggest us to offer prayers at the temple so that you will be cured of many ailments. ||

Well, that’s secondary rationalization! :-) The “elders” have never ever mentioned in any of the holy scriptures that THIS was the reason! :-) You are just trying to beguile the innocent people. For your kind information, the so called elders had no valid ideas about what CAUSED the ailments! :-)

   
|| They were not always superstitious. ||

Of course they were almost always! Except for those who had the brains and the balls to question all the nonsense that was happening! But surely, these are not the “elders” that you refer to :-)


|| Yes, in a few cases they did go overboard when due to ignorance they hoped many serious diseases could be cured at temples by deities. ||

Thanks for agreeing that they were stupidly dumb. I am sure you couldn’t find any secondary rationalizations for ALL the irrational superstitions that they practiced.

   
|| When people go to a temple for the *Deepaaraadhana*, and when the doors open up, the positive energy gushes out onto the persons who are there. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!

   
|| The water that is sprinkled onto the assemblages passes on the energy to all. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!

   
|| This also explains why men are not allowed to wear shirts at a few temples and women are requested to wear more ornaments during temple visits. ||

Huh?!! Why? I mean WHY? Should only the men benefit and not the women? Once again goes to show why all religions are misogynistic to the core! The men are basically forced to be bare-chested so that they could identify who are all wearing the sacred thread and who are not- organized, divinely codified and sanctioned discrimination!

 
|| It is through these jewels (metal) that positive energy is absorbed by the women. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!
Why not make the women go bare-chested and make the men wear all the jewels??? I mean, I don’t want that enforced, but just for an arguments’ sake… Let there be a choice. Why should it be enforced?

   
|| Also, it is a practice to leave newly purchased jewels at an idol’s feet and then wear them with the idol’s blessings. ||

Yet another dumb, irrational hangover of “Ancient-Wisdom” :-)

   
|| This act is now justified after reading this article. This act of “seeking divine blessings” before using any new article, like books or pens or automobiles may have stemmed from this through mere observation. ||

Hmmmm, more bunk! This “article” of yours is nothing but a bunch of utterly baseless claims and a load of rubbish really!
   
|| Energy lost in a day’s work is regained through a temple visit and one is refreshed slightly. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!!

   
|| The positive energy that is spread out in the entire temple and especially around where the main idol is placed, are simply absorbed by one's body and mind. ||

There! There is that weasel word “Energy” and so I am afraid I have got to use the standard response- Shut up, WILL YOU?!!! :-)

   
|| Did you know, every Vaishnava(Vishnu devotees), “must” visit a Vishnu temple twice every day in their location. ||

Why should it be a MUST? Do you know that every muslim MUST perform the prayers 5 times a day at specific times. Won’t it be considered MORE powerful than the Vaishana practice? Surely 5>2, right?? :-)
And if you ask a muslim, he/she will have equally or even more whacky reasons to support their dumb beliefs and practices! :-) There are plenty of muslim apologetic websites. Just give it a try… Just for the belly aching laughter.

   
|| Our practices are NOT some hard and fast rules framed by 1 man and his followers or God’s words in somebody’s dreams. ||

Thanks for accepting that it is not one man's work or a gOD (Whatever It May Be) words in somebody's dreams :-)
   
|| All the rituals, all the practices are, in reality, well researched, studied and scientifically backed thesis which form the ways of nature to lead a good healthy life. ||

Oh wow!
“Well researched”, eh? Can I have the references PLEASE? :-)
“Studied”, eh? I wonder by whom? I am sure their “study” would have involved scratching their chins thoughtfully, analyzing the baseless claims mentioned above and arriving at the predetermined conclusion that all that crap is profound wisdom! :-) Can I please have access to the peer reviewed papers on this? :-) Thank you :-)
“Scientifically backed thesis”??!!! My foot! Such utter nonsense can never be scientifically backed! In fact, this is antithesis of science! It’s high time such despicable scumbags who take the name of science to garner automatic respect for such bullshit are challenged head on!
   
|| The scientific and research part of the practices are well camouflaged as “elder’s instructions” or “granny’s teaching’s” which should be obeyed as a mark of respect so as to once again, avoid stress to the mediocre brains. ||

What?!! Mediocre brains??? How can you automatically assume that all human brains are mediocre? Isn’t it condescending on your part? As elaborated earlier, there is NOTHING scientific in all the practices. In fact, they are all thoroughly irrational. And there is no proper scientific research in any of it. This talk of irrational stupidities being “camouflaged” is a cheap attempt at secondary rationalization. These were dogmatic dictums that one must follow- so typically religious!

In fact, every sentence there eked of ignorance coupled with arrogant certainty! They are all total bunk which even a primary school student armed with critical thinking skills can debunk!

Come let’s teach everyone the all important critical thinking skills!
http://ganeshveluswami.blogspot.in/2010/07/most-important-education-for-all.html

P.S.: Whenever you hear the word "energy" being mentioned anywhere please do this-
Substitute the word "energy" with "measurable work capability" and check if it still makes sense. If it does, then it is proper science (because that's what it means in science); and if it sounds like nonsense then it indeed is nonsense and the person is trying to use the word "energy" just to sound scientific.
Please try it on these words: Positive energy, Negative energy, Spiritual energy, Divine energy, etc ;-)

Similarly, whenever someone uses the word "vibration", replace it with "uniform oscillation around a mean" or "a regular periodic variation about a mean". If it still makes sense, then it is proper science
(because that's what it means in science); and if it sounds like nonsense then it indeed is nonsense and the person is trying to use the word "energy" just to sound scientific.
Please try it on these words: Positive vibrations, Negative vibrations, Spiritual vibrations, Divine vibrations, etc ;-)

  2. Well Ganesh, you simply go on opening your mouth and ranting about asking for proof for all these claims - I agree SOME of the info is factually wrong but I do believe that the idea of this post was to get people more inclined to find out the reasons behind ancient wisdom. Instead of asking everyone for references why don't you do some work by going and finding some in libraries or in various texts. I suggest you read ALL the scripts associated with such practices before making such a scathing attack on Hinduism and religion in general. Your very mockery of people's beliefs shows the imbalanced nature of your thought - it contradicts your beliefs as listed on your FB page. Being a naturalist (as said on your FB page) also means believing that Nature has the ultimate power and it amounts to accepting Nature as godly and that in itself is a religion and a system of belief (did you know there are many atheistic sects in Hinduism itself) - so you are contradicting yourself there again. And your arrogant insinuations regarding Vedic sculptures are pretty much uncalled for. You are open to your views but you needn't use unacceptable terminology to prove your point. If you want proof for the scientifically backed claims - I suggest go and read EVERY Hindu scripture and then revert back. Do not just blabber without doing your HW. Your ignorance about practices, I understand, is leading to your arrogance on the issue so go and clear out your doubts before you start the yapping about opinions formed on the basis of absence of proper knowledge. If you want the references to proof - you must find them don't expect everybody to spoon-feed you.

    1. Thanks, but no thanks!
      Why do you feel should I read all the scripts? I am not making the positive claim here. I am simply refusing to (blindly) believe, unless evidence is presented. This is the default stance to take, whenever any claim is presented. Remember, the burden of proof rests on the ones making a positive claim to prove it; NOT on the ones refusing to believe it (in the absence of evidence) to disprove it. This is elementary.

    2. I indulged in mockery, because that's what it deserved! The original article was pseudoscience at it's very best!

      Labeling it as "Imbalanced" is an attempt at a logical fallacy called 'Poisoning the well'
      And your explanation for the word 'Naturalist' is another logical fallacy of the kind Strawman!
      Where did you get that meaning for a Naturalist from? Since when did 'god' get into Naturalism? :-) gOD (WIMB- Whatever It May Be) is the epitome of SUPER-natural entity. Don't pollute other words with it.

      Arrogant insinuations regarding Vedic sculptures?!! Huh? Dude, I guess you are referring to the word veDICK. I challenge you to get a thousand people at random and show them this photo and see what comes to their mind immediately! That was why that word was used. :-)

      Fair enough. I do understand, in hindsight... The language might have been toned down a little; but I would still think that the original article and the potential harm that it could cause drove me to use this kind of language. Though, you must appreciate that it was not as filthy as it should have ideally been when dealing with something as lousy as the original article.

      Thanks but no thanks. Stop begging me to read every scripture. It is useless. If you feel otherwise, why don't you point out the parts that you feel is worthy of reading?
      P.S.: On a side note, HAVE YOU FIRST READ EVERY HINDU SCRIPTURE???:-) Please do that first before you start sermonizing others ;-)
      Do not just blabber without doing your HW. :-)
      You accuse me of ignorance? Okay, why don't you enlighten me about the practices? I can have a good time at the attempts at secondary rationalizations :-)

      If you want people to understand and appreciate your views, then you must take the effort to make them understand and appreciate it. Simply asking people who don't share your blind beliefs to keep quiet, won't do!
      If you want respect, then earn it. Don't demand it.

      P.S.: I have tried to clearly explain why the original article was crappy. Please try and counter them, rather than indulging in uncalled for ad hominem and logical fallacies.
      Thank you.

  3. Temple as huge multitude Radiation Centers

    As we have seen in the above section from the beginning the temples all over the world were on the tops of mountains (Sri Sailam, Tirupati, Mangalagiri), near seashores (Rameswaram, Gokarnam), on River banks (Kashi, Nasik, Pandaripur) and amidst forests (Ahobilam). All temples with out exception were built where supreme concentration of cosmic dust falling and/or where the geo-thermal energy emissions are highest. These can be plotted as infra red emission centers via satellite mapping which most of the western governments did (with an exception of India where these temples along with agama texts exist. How much energy is emitted from these temples need to be studied by professional scientists. Now the question is how this massive energy accumulating or emitting can be harnessed for the benefit of human kind. The first answer for this question is provided by crystals-diamonds and other precious stones aligned in a grid fashion placed under the Sanctum Sanctorum at 9 feet depth.

    Modern science long time back (during 1980s) proved that if precious stones are arranged in a grid like fashion then they pool, amplify and resonate energies in given area. So if a particular kind of geo-thermal radiation is emitted at a particular temple area say Tirupati, then the crystal-precious metal- arrangement beneath the deity will absorb the radiation amplify it and then resonate it through the deity. The alignment varies with the area and energy radiation under consideration. Usually they are aligned along with the ‘graphic image of energy in Cartesian two dimensional plane’ (yantra) that is buried under the deity. Every graphic image of energy (yantra) is different for different areas where temples are built and this creates the differences in the three dimensional representations (devata murti) which are deities that we see in temples. By visiting a particular temple dedicated to a particular god we are entering an arena of altered energy state where various vibrations and radiations will wash us. Can we see them? No as they are radiation. When we take x-ray picture or talk over cell phone electro magnetic radiation is generated which we cannot see.

    The deity in any temple (which is again a big science it self from selection of stones to final sanctifying) was cut geometrically in such shape that it radiates the energy resonated by the precious metals buried beneath. To achieve this efficiency only certain type of black granite stones that are conducive to this form of radiation are selected, geometrically cut in to idols, energy insulated and kept in temples. The discussion on the selection of stones for carving idols is beyond the scope of this article. Like x-rays which need to be connected to a power outlet so too temples are grounded in huge geo-thermal emission areas or cosmic dust bombarded areas. Even millions of wanted unwanted believers’ non believers visit them still their energy radiation capacity does not decrease. One way agamas follow to retain the energy efficiency of the temple area is the continuous recitation of various mantras which also create a sound resonation which will be picked up not only by clay crystals but by gem stones.

  4. Let us examine the similarities in intercontinental temples one by one. But why clay?

    1. Clay

    Scientists found one such important medium of transformation of life on earth was and is clay. Clay provides the basis of life, because of its peculiar properties.

    Professor. Armin Weiss –University of Munich-1990

    Clay has two abilities 1. Capacity to store energy 2. ability to transfer energy

    Clay can reproduce it self. The energy clay can absorb interestingly comes from 1. Earth's electro magnetism, 2. back ground radioactive decay 3. cosmic rays bombardment of earth

    Graham Cains-University of Glasgow reported that clay act as a catalyst in transforming inorganic matter in to organic matter.

    Ames Research Center-Mountain View CA-Professor James A. Lawless 1970-1985

    Amino Acids (building blocks of proteins) nucleotides (building blocks of genes) began forming chains if they are deposited on CLAY having traces of Zinc or Nickel and allowed to dry. But these traces of Nickel held on only to the known twenty types of Amino Acids common to all living things on earth.

    Lelia Coyne-Head of Research Team, Even common clay will trap and transmit all the above three energies. This is achieved through the structural irregularities in the clay crystals like the crystals of gem stones. In these irregular structures the energy is stored.

    Noam Lahab-Hebrew University, Israel-In order to store energy and affect amino acids present in all life forms of earth the clay has to under go alternate cycles of wetting and drying. This means the dry lands with regular rain cycles, sea shores where there is moisture (sagara tate) or flowing rivers or brooks (nadi teere) with moisture clouds, or mountain tops where air at nights comes with moisture (giri tale), or center of forests where the moisture is generated due to trees and their perspiration (vana madhye).

  5. 2. Height of the towers (gopuras) a Note

    The energy bombarded from cosmic radiation or cosmic dust is more than the energy reaching from the Sun. But during the day this is dispersed due to the Sun’s own electrical and magnetic repulsions. They reach peak during nights and are more powerful than the radiation of Sun. The incidence of Cosmic dust is very high over mountain tops (giri tale), open expanse of oceans (sagara tate), and where rivers are flowing (nadi tale.) This is the reason why most of the cosmic dust observatories, radio telescopes, astronomical telescopes, planetariums are all located over the hill tops as over the hill tops the uninterrupted cosmic dust bombardment can be observed. This cosmic dust will be dispersed in low lying areas due to electric bulbs which themselves create electro magnetic fields that disperse the cosmic dust. Between the two tropics, tropic of cancer and Capricorn the duration of day and night is almost equal thus when we observe in the nights the sky also looks more or less same. This means for a scientist observing the cosmic dust it appears that they are coming form the same region of the sky. If we, for division of convenience, super impose the 360 degree rotating zodiac over the night sky, then it appears that cosmic dust is falling form the same zodiac sign.

    More recently radio astronomers studying the temple structures pointed out the similarities between the structures of the temple towers (naga vesara and dravida styles) and the sophisticated horn shaped antennas used in radio astronomy that are used to amplify and magnify the weak radiations bombarding the earth from certain directions of cosmos which are in the band width of 14.5 meters or more wave length. But how does this clay built towers can amplify weak radiations coming from certain zodiac regions of cosmos? The answer was again provided by soil scientists who confirmed that CLAY acts as both para magnetic and dia magnetic in alternating cycles which give clay the ability to absorb, amplify and disperse the radiations in to the temple premises and in to the outer perimeter of five kilometer radius towards the soil, houses, people and crops surrounding it. In many temple towns they observed (in South America, Ireland, Scandinavia and Africa for sure and in India either they did not reveal or do not want to reveal their observations) the agricultural scientists observed that the highly para and dia magnetic plants and crops from all directions incline towards the temple towers as if ready to get drenched in the nourishments of cosmic radiation beamed in by the towers. The convex shaped tower tops (kalasas) plated with electro magnetic conducting gold (suvarna), copper (tamra) and silver (rajata) act as catalysts to this process. Precisely for this reason the temples over the tops of mountains are elevated to massive heights and deliberately pointed towards a particular zodiac sign to amplify the radiations coming from that area of cosmos. Also for this reason there is a rule in agamas that state that one should not construct the dwellings within the perimeter of the shadow of any Shiva Temple due to the high grade amplification and radiation associated with the temple premises.

    To observe and study these cosmic energy phenomenon scientists develop telescopes fitted with series of convex lenses and developed doom structures to station the telescopes. They also developed power full horn resembling antenna structures like temple towers to collect maximum cosmic dust and amplify the same for analytical purposes.

  6. Second reason for elevation of temple towers is Man made Pollutants (from petrol, diesel chemical wastes, factories, burning wood coal etc.) They come out of combustion and will rise high in to atmosphere (hot air goes up and displaces cold air) usually for more than 50 feet and depending on the wind speed and direction will travel in usually east west or north south direction. Where ever wind speed decreases these pollutants will settle down to the ground and affect all life systems there which are called acid rains. One solution provided by modern scientific methods to one such combustion problem with factories is to design factory chimneys to a height of more than ‘100 feet’. Bu this the pollutants does not affect the area where the factory is there but will affect the neighboring villages as these pollutants are discharged in higher atmosphere where they travel with the wind to far off areas and affect the life there.

    As far as petrol diesel is concerned they emit deadly CO (carbon monoxide). There is no way to prevent this deadly gas that created hundreds of pneumatic illness like asthma, isnofelia, associated lung dieses and ultimately cancer. It also comes with black color that burns eyes, deposits over clothes, trees buildings and discolors them. One solution for discoloring that was found was to use ‘gold and silver’ within the car’s exhaust system in a part called catalytic converter. This part costs around $ 300 dollars (Rs. 15,000) and is good for 3 years. The only thing it does is it absorbs the blackness of CO thus the pollutants come as white smoke that does not affect your clothes, trees or buildings and gives erroneously delusory effect that there is no pollution. This is what many Indian when they come to any western country see. They think that there is no pollution in the west. As in India the induction of catalytic converters started just recently within no time in India too we can have the same erroneously delusory effect of less pollution. The gold content that they put in catalytic converter can only absorb the blackness causing agents from CO and transform them in to gold or silver halides of whiteness, all the while keeping the pollution intact with its deadly effects.

    Temples built with clay with convex surfaces will trap the pollutants that travel over 100 feet height in atmospheres and diffuses them and neutralizes them as they are washed with high energies collected within temple premises, or by regular performance of yagnas within the temple premises. During yagnas we burn medicinal herbs which decompose and rise (hot air rises) more than 50 feet to meet the pollutants and dissolve them in to non toxic elements (sudhi.)

  7. 3. Purusha Pramana-9 feet deep- a Note

    The geo- thermal fusion energy is very strongly felt/experienced below 6-9 feet beneath the earth surface crust (purusha pramana in agamas mean 9 feet). The outer layer of the earth will disperse and dissipate geo-thermal energy in to outer atmosphere due to the interacting with the gravitational energy, sun’s energy bombarding the earth, or cosmic dust.

    4. Yagnas – A Note

    Yagnas or fire ceremonies are a must within the temples. Though thousands of ingredients are used in conducting yagnas the primary ingredient is the go panchakam (five ingredients that come from cow milk, curd, ghee, urine and dung). The below mentioned point is about one such ingredient of go panchakam –cow dung.

    After Chernobyl accidental radiation leak Russians want to inoculate all citizens within a radius of 200 kilometers. Then they found that nomadic steppe Indians living very close to the incident area were not affected by Radiation of Chernobyl, where as people, plants, fish and milk as far as England were affected by the radiation. The scientists have learned that groups of sub-continent Indians living in the border lands of Soviet Union, who used dried Cow Dung to seal their huts, were unaffected by Chernobyl Radiation Leak and following Radio Active Contamination.

    The Russian academy of sciences Director called German, Yugoslav scientists to investigate the matter. Joint experiments were conducted and Joint Research project was under taken by German, Yugoslav and Russian physicists, chemists, radiation experts and other scientists headed by Biochemist Prof. Mato Modric. In Communist Yugoslavia, this group of scientists in the city of Rovinj, conducted experiments on what happens when the ceremony of Yagna or fire ceremony was performed. Under laboratory conditions when scientists burned required ingredients in copper pyramid-a miniature size of Yagna Vedi- their instruments failed to pick up radioactivity in the immediate area an anomaly since Chernobyl incident[1].

    According to the participated Physicists, “We believe we can establish the fact of an electromagnetic radiation during the (Yagna) ceremony. But we are in an area what conventional science considers rational, in to an area of informational transfer through inter molecular and inter atomic process mediated by ultraviolet photons. It is logical to conclude that some kind of energetic mechanism is activated which can be translated in to physical meaning linked to concrete information systems, connected to resonance

  8. Tip of ice berg.

    What was depicted in the above is the tip of the ice berg. To answer and understand a simple question as to why temples are built with clay we needed hundreds of branches of scientific disciplines and evolution of science over a 200 year period. To provide explanations for agama texts presenting the summary in Sanskrit of all those hundreds of scientific disciplines probably require many years. Sanskrit is the language of sages who wrote these texts. For generations, temple builders (shilpis), temple worshippers (archakas) temple goers (bhaktas) never questioned the procedures. We lost much of this information during alien invasions that plundered temples just for the gem stones in the ground and gold engravings over the temple towers. In the modern times since 50 years remaining agama texts are not systematically studied and worst not followed. The greatest crime is we are shifting the temple construction method from clay to cement. This will destroy those who know the art of temple construction with clay. Once they are dead we can no longer get back the knowledge lost. In the same way even today in many villages the houses are also built with clay (at times even two three story buildings also) which keeps warmth in winter and coolness in summer (acts as natural air conditioner). By going to cement (which can with stand only for 150 years) in the name of modernization and making MNCs rich we are doing great injustice to the great knowledge of construction practices (the clay houses last for more than thousands of years as we have seen in the case of temples) that saved us-preceding generations and will save future generations from radiation, disease and illness and destruction.

  10. at whoever said "if you want proof ...go do your homework " .... if you state a scientific fact its your homework to provide the proofand references also; else every other tom dick and harry ...is a newton einstein and feynman ..
    to the guy who posted about "scientific experiments at chernobyl" where are the refrences ?? .. even if i have a refernce it still neednt be that the experimnets were conducted properly ...the references should be exhaustive too .. many of these experiments are published on the slightest hints that what they are trying to find is positve ... what about tall those experiments which showed a negative result ? ..and i read some guy hear said to remove the blackness of CO ... CO is a colourless gas !!! ... and that that particular structure traps pollutants and neutralizes them by washing them in high energies from the temple ....(STFU WILL YOU what the FFF doyu know about the word energy ??? ) .......if that is so then why should we be worried about pollution at all ???...keep building those structures every where wont you (say just outside a factory and tilt its exhaust pipe straight towards the temple ... ahh wait youll come up with some crappy "scientific" answer for that im sure

  12. I never get it, how people expect to understand religion and faith with science and there are some people who go to the extent of proving with half baked scientific theories for the sake of universal acceptance. According to me if I have faith in a religious practice I am going to do it. Faith doesn't require reasoning. This blog post is getting undue importance just because the author has the ability to communicate. Yet I commented here just to tell the author that he has no rights to abuse others' faith especially in such a tone. So if you don't believe in them STFU.

    At first glance I thought this was just another useless rant from some jobless idiot. After going through the profile, I am surprised at how a person of such educational qualification could talk in such an undignified manner. I pity the patients who come and see you.

  13. Huh?!! Why? I mean WHY? Should only the men benefit and not the women? Once again goes to show why all religions are misogynistic to the core! The men are basically forced to be bare-chested so that they could identify who are all wearing the sacred thread and who are not- organized, divinely codified and sanctioned discrimination! ///////


    so true. Honestly, my lines too!

    A brilliant write up. Guess we should start the questioning the farce part and taking it head on, ourselves too. This certainly is a start. Please keep writing on such lines.. best wishes :)

    And need to say this: can't stop laughing at a couple of comments, here. Someone has tried his/ her best to beat around the bush and type so much just to prove this: "We don't know anything for sure. It has been impressed on us by our 'elders', so we blindly accept it. Now, we will force you to go through this crap too. Waste your life reading these craps and became imbeciles like us."
    Wow, what a horrible canvassing!:D

    And the age old rhetoric of 'you hurt the religious sentiments' crap when someone is not able to vouch or substantiate the crap that's prevalent. If you are a zero at attacking the ideas/ truth - attack the person!
    This 'aviator' has also went onto question the writer's qualifications. haha. brilliant! whining at its best! :D

  14. i thought this would be a scientific critical analysis of the fb posts, but i find this as yet another counter-ranting against an original ranting, thus the entire point being beaten. In my view, the author of the fb post and this blog, both equally need education about rational thinking!

  18. Before i comment upon anything you said, can you please tell me Gunniboy, why all of your posts are something related to "debunking" religion? You call yourself an atheist, a rationalist. And yet your major obsession seems to be talking down upon a God, who you dont believe exists! Your whole being seems to be concerned about something non-existent! How rational is that? Please enlighten me, would you?

    ReplyDelete
  19. And, i do have to say that you are as much brainwashed or "indoctrinated" if you like as the religious person who did the fb post. I can come up with a million reasons why your so called rationalism is only a belief system. But this is more than enough to see how gullible you and your rationality is

    ///Whenever you hear the word "energy" being mentioned anywhere please do this-
    Substitute the word "energy" with "measurable work capability" and check if it still makes sense. If it does, then it is proper science (because that's what it means in science); and if it sounds like nonsense then it indeed is nonsense and the person is trying to use the word "energy" just to sound scientific.Please try it on these words: Positive energy, Negative energy, Spiritual energy, Divine energy, etc ;-)

    Similarly, whenever someone uses the word "vibration", replace it with "uniform oscillation around a mean" or "a regular periodic variation about a mean". If it still makes sense, then it is proper science (because that's what it means in science); and if it sounds like nonsense then it indeed is nonsense and the person is trying to use the word "energy" just to sound scientific.
    Please try it on these words: Positive vibrations, Negative vibrations, Spiritual vibrations, Divine vibrations, etc ;-)///

    He he he. You are very funny. Now you want every single word to be analysed scientifically before being uttered?? Remember, language is not mathematics. The meanings that words carry are very ambiguous to say the least. And that is how it ought to be!

    You rationalists get away easily by attacking the most stupidest ideas of religion. But you just ignore the spiritual side of it, just as you are not concerned about any of the western/eastern philosophy or for that matter any thing aesthetic. Hell, all that you rationalists read are books by Sagan, Hitchens, Sam Harris or Dawkins that provide "arguments" to talk against religion in the most trivial way. And the saddest part is, these people like Dawkins and hitchens think they are THE intellectuals of this age. What a great downfall from the age when Huxley, Freud, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Nietzsche, Camus, Kafka and millions of other great "intellectuals" were embarassed of calling themselves intellectuals, which was exactly what they were! For all i know, the theist and the atheist are in the same boat.

  20. Rationalists of today are hot tempered, excessively abusive and discriminative. They are closed in mind , dangerously , threaten and are not logic in their discourse nor discussions. If the logic seems irrefutable, they block people or gather together to block and abuse. Such culture is very bad and they need some sound education in debating, discussing and thinking skills. if you cannot tolerate spirituality and religion, that is a personal view. But when an opposite view is presented, maintain decency and decorum in the discourse. I guess it is the scoundrel periyar whose abusive tactics which is the reason for this intemperate behaviour. There is no need for the others in the society to tolerate such nonsense and hence there should be people who should firmly oppose and put an end to this excessive intolerance and closed minde3d view. This is worst than any type of superstition and surely even superstitions are bad.
