Mayesvara Dasa: Hari Bolo Drutakarma Prabhu!

Please accept my obeisance’s. All Glories to Sri Guru & Sri Gauranga!

While preparing for the next Krishna Conscious program that I am sponsoring at my home next February 21, 2012 called “Darwin’s Dilemma”, I came across this fascinating debate between Peter Ward and Stephen Meyer.

I am inclined to assume you are probably already quite familiar with both of these leaders in each of their respective fields. Also this is dated back to 2008 so it isn’t late breaking news.

But just in case this guy Peter Ward happened to slip past your list of leading Paleontologists, I particularly wanted you to hear what he states in this dialogue. First of all he sounds like a real jerk, makes a lot of obfuscating coments and defers several times to other scholars in the audience to bail him out. Most particularly however is how he makes several assertions that fly right in the face with your work in regards to “Forbidden Archeology”. He specifically states that if anyone can show him where the the rock record shows humans and dinosaurs appearing during the same period he would drop his pursuit of Evolution. I believe that was particularly discussed in the film narrated by Charlton Hesston regarding the river rocks discovered in Texas? I suspect you have a lot to say about this as well.

OK. I realize Mr. Ward is likely to dismiss with predictable contempt, prior to proper appraisal your work, all of your studies. But I did want to let you know how much I appreciate the work you are doing with great admiration. One thing that I did enjoy about this particular debate, assuming anyone has the time to watch the entire thing, is that Stephen Meyer comes off much more professional, composed and serious then this cartoon like demeanor that Peter Ward presents.

As for me this debate also reinforces a theme I have been developing in regards to simply conferring with many of the Peter Ward types that Science is NOT conclusive and therefore raises the question of why we herald it so much. Where the limited senses of the research scientists leave off… philosophy kicks in and I believe there is still a lot of room to challenge these “Rationalists” on this ground. This is what I do with the Atheists in the office where I work and it tends to at least shut them up, although I would never say it’s easy to convince someone against their preconceived beliefs. Ha. As the saying goes: “Don’t bother me with the facts… I already made up my mind!”

Keep up your good work!

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before on has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.” Sherlock Holmes , A Scandal in Bohemia, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. 1891

Hoping this meets you in good health and enthusiastic service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead!

Thank you!
Yours in the service of Lord Jagannatha!
