It’s interesting how the article starts off –
“(CNN) — In the midst of chaos here on Earth, scientists are finding hope for life on other planets”
I am thinking the following stuff :
- Why do we have this great urge to leave our beautiful planet?
- What special are we going to do in another planet? We will have the same rubbish mentality to take there to.
- Why are they spending so much money? How many welfare activities can you setup which can brighten our planet right here?
Sometimes a man’s curiosity, ego, habits and spending spree have no limits. What does our dear Prabhupad have to say about such endeavors.
A talk with His Divine Grace recorded July 6, 1976 at Washington, D.C.
Srila Prabhupada: …There are gold mountains also.
Svarupa Damodara: Mount Sumeru?
Srila Prabhupada: There are gold mountains, silver mountains, iron mountains, copper road, everything is there. What is that?
Prabhu: This is a new picture of Mars, just came in the Washington Post today. Here is what the scientists say the mountains are on Mars. Big crater they are talking about. This is a recent photo.
Srila Prabhupada: So? What do they say?
Svarupa Damodara: Says it’s a Grand Canyon. Just like in Arizona there’s a canyon called Grand Canyon.
Srila Prabhupada: So might be from Arizona? (laughter) Like Arizona, that means Arizona.
Rupanuga: Just like Arizona, the same rocks you find in Arizona.
Prabhupada: Just see.
Svarupa Damodara: This is called Martian Grand Canyon, and an ocean meandering gorge ten times the size of Arizona’s Grand Canyon.
Srila Prabhupada: That we can photograph it and make ten times, hundred times. Their business is in Arizona.
Rupanuga: I think so.
Srila Prabhupada: And this is only the propaganda.
Rupanuga: I agree. I think it was all like a movie set.
Srila Prabhupada: That’s all. They are not going. Arizona is there, only accept. Why they are taking Arizona? That means they are in Arizona. Just like one man was stealing from the room, and there were some sounds, and the master of the house said “Who is there? What is that sound?” The man said, “No, I am not stealing. No, no I am not stealing.” It is like that. (laughter)
Rupanuga: Throughout this article they make comparisons to earth …
Srila Prabhupada: And there is no man. Just see the foolishness. The same logic, “No, no, I am not stealing.” Who asked that you are stealing? He asked for the sound, but he disclosed. It is like that. Why they are bringing Arizona?
Rupanuga: Shrila Prabhupada, you catch them red-handed.
Srila Prabhupada: Oh, yes, that I can do. It is like that. Who asked them to speak of Arizona? You are speaking of Arizona. “No, no, I am not stealing.” (laughter) It is like that. They could have mentioned other places
Rupanuga: Arizona is convenient.
Srila Prabhupada: That means they are working in Arizona. The mind is there. Arizona-minded because they are working in Arizona, so they are disclosing mind
Svarupa Damodara: But they are claiming that this photograph was taken two hundred million miles away from the earth.
Srila Prabhupada: That, they can say anything, but they are doing everything in Arizona….
Srila Prabhupada: Why do they speak about seeing? What is the value of your seeing? I have seen the Atlantic Ocean, that means I have seen everything? This is ludicrous.
Rupanuga: They may simply speculate from a distance, that “Here is the surface,” like here…
Srila Prabhupada: That’s all. Real business is speculation.
Rupanuga: Here it says, here, this is some great, here…
Srila Prabhupada: Oh, that is “I am not stealing.”
Rupanuga: Twelve hundred miles above the surface. Now they want to speculate what is there.
Srila Prabhupada: Who asked him that who is stealing? But he said “I am not stealing.”
Rupanuga: That is perfect, Srila Prabhupada!
Srila Prabhupada: Why he brings Arizona? Who asked him? That means that their business in Arizona
Rupanuga: They have exposed themselves.
Srila Prabhupada: Rascals, how they are cheating people
Rupanuga: Such a big hoax. They have spent billions of dollars for such a hoax
Srila Prabhupada: Now you consider whether I am right or wrong. The moon planet is also Arizona. (Laughs) All their business asset is there.
