Room Conversation

November 2, 1976, Vrndavana
Prabhupada: And they continually going on giving information, rocks and sand. Why do you take so much trouble of going to Mars and this? If your go.... It is already concluded that we shall give this because they are already under the impression that all other planets are vacant. The same thing after spending millions of dollars, they're giving the same verdict. So why do this business? Simply cheating. They're cheating their boss that "We are making research." The result of research is the same. They're silent now, this Mars excursion?
Devotee: Yes.
Prabhupada: What they'll say? There is nothing to say. They do not go and even they go, they take photograph from millions of miles. What is the value of these things? But people are accepting that "Oh, scientific research." Perhaps I am the only man in the world who is protesting. (laughs) Eh? Everyone is accepting, "Oh, it is scientific."
Hari-Sauri: People are being duped now into believing that advancement means simply to research. Not to actually find out anything valuable, but just to do some research. They think that that's the whole thing, education is just to research.
Prabhupada: Yes, that is the European, you don't get the result, go on researching and spoil the money.
Devotee (2): Krsna has manufactured everything in such a complicated way, that their search is never-ending.
Prabhupada: That article written by Svarupa Damodara in the recent Back to Godhead.
Hari-Sauri: That was not.... Oh, which one?
Prabhupada: The recent this.
Hari-Sauri: The newest one? That was not by Svarupa Damodara. That was by...
Prabhupada: You have got?
Hari-Sauri: Damodara Dasa and Jagjivana.
Prabhupada: Oh, Svarupa Damodara is different. Oh.
Hari-sauri: This is more like a commentary than science, as it exists today.
Prabhupada: Hm.
Hari-sauri: This is like a presentation of science.
Prabhupada: Hm. Yes, these article. (pause) That's all right. Hm. (end)
