I wonder what such people do when they are told that angel Gabriel spoke directly to Mohd who started taking short hand notes. Or say Jesus walked on water. Or burning bush spoke to Moses. Or Mohd ascended to heaven from dome of the Al-Aqsa.

How many have renounced Christanity or Judaism or Islam for such stories.
Or is it that Christanity or Judaism or Islam don't produce 'bright science students' like Bhavv?

Sadly this is the factor that I am mentioning in my thread "How to preserve sanaathana dharma" Within the circle of young minds that have overpowering influence of the English education systems and convent backgrounds have been so busy dissecting the theological aspects of Hindusim to give it a modern dressing that they are lost in their scientific investigation asking for "pratayksha pramana"

What really is missed out is that Hinduism has gone far beyond the logical reasoning and at some point of time, no amount of smartness or intellect can actually take us forward.That is when we have to surrender to the Dharmic principles accept the system meant for the welfare of the all in mind"sarve jana sukhino bhavantho"

In one of my recent visits to Gokarna the holy place in North West karnataka I came across a coversation between two individuals.One was feeling pround of the fact that according to legends Lord Ganesh encountered Ravana on the instruction of Lord Shiva and nuetralised the power of the linga gifted to Ravana by Lord Shiva himself as a boon.While the other individual called him stupid and said "how can you be so ignorant,those are all stories and not real, With all your knowledge cant you understand that an elephant headed creature cant exist in human body"

Then I questioned him.....Then pray tell me why are you ardently following the instructions and performing puja here if you feel the very part of why this is a holy place, ridiculous?

He said" I am with the elders and compelled into it .Alone left to decide then I shall not make the absurd mistake of wasting my time here"

I guess this is the price we have to pay for the urbanisation and development .This is the price of the NRI funds and also the Foreign university education systems overlapping on the Indian system.

Every child needs to grow with fairy tales and and stories that stimulates fantasies and imagination in the mind .This is the same across all cultures where there is respect for nature and traditions .Too much scientific thinking at early life develops habit of disputing the fundamentals of our existence.This forever drags the young minds to move out of the system of the Saanaathana Dharma.

Scientific thinking is not wrong but one also has to co-exist with the imaginative fables,myths and legends as they are woven with an element of truth in it which is only meant for common good.

<b>How else can one explain what Samkhya School of philosophy initiated by Sage Kapila that was propounded over 2300 years ago has intricate description of Atoms and "Top quark " which is a sub atomic particle that was proved with its existence only in 1994 </b>
Can any one from these stream of thinking
