‘NaMo Waves’ & Kauravas as Test Tube Babies: ISC Sees Some Gems
From claiming Einstein and Newton were wrong to ‘Kauravas were test tube babies’, the ISC saw some weird statements.
A delegate at the 106th Indian Science Congress on Friday, 4 January, said that modern physics as we know it will be destroyed and will soon be replaced by a 'new understanding' of physics.
And once that happens, the world will know 'gravitational forces as 'Narendra Modi waves' and the Gravitational Lensing Effect as 'Harsh Vardhan effect', the man claimed.
That's not all. The man in question, one Kannan Jegathala Krishnan, also claimed that both Issac Newton and Albert Einstein had little understanding of physics.
According to The Print, Krishnan said,
“Newton was not able to understand gravitational repulsive force, which is why he was not able to answer most questions related to gravity. His calculations were perfect but there was a problem in his theoretical physics. I have been able to solve these theories.”
And about Einstein, this is what Krishnan, who is a senior reseach scientist at the World Community Service Centre in Tamil Nadu's Aliyar, said:
“Space is heavier than the Sun and every other planet and hence compresses all the planets. Equal pressure is applied to them, which is why they are moving. The quality of space is self-compressive, which is something that Newton and Einstein could not understand. Einstein did not guide the world in the correct way.”
Needless to say, Krishnan's audacious remarks were not spared on Twitter.
‘Kauravas Are Test Tube Babies’
Krishnan was not the only one to make such overreaching claims at the 'Science' Congress.
Andhra University Vice Chancellor G Nageshwar Rao claimed Kauravas were born due to stem cell and test tube technologies and India possessed this knowledge thousands of years ago.
Lord Rama used 'astras' and 'shastras' (weapons) which would chase targets and after hitting it they would come back, Rao said at a presentation.
“Everybody wonders and nobody believes, how come Gandhari gave birth to 100 children. How is it humanly possible? Can a woman give birth to 100 children in one lifetime.”
Again, Rao's comments were subject to Twitter's deepest scrutiny, with many lamenting at the purpose of a Science Congress in light of such remarks.
