2012 — The End of the World?

Hare Krishna
Not that I believed the date 2012 meant that the world was ending, I was just pleased to receive your posting. When I see Madhudvisa das come up on my email I get an immediate lift.They seem to arrive at the right time.
Warm regards

Man On The Moon–A Colossal Hoax that Cost Billions of Dollars

Did you even click that link?

The reflectors are used daily by astronomers. They can hit them pretty reliably. They’re not just being reflected by the moon itself, the moon isn’t reflective in that sense. Now you’ll argue about how it reflects light, etc. Did you know there’s such thing as “earth shine”? Since we’re such a large planet, and we have an atmosphere, it’s actually much brighter than the moon’s glow on us. From the moon’s point of view, there earth goes through phases just like the moon does from ours. A night on the moon with a “full earth” would actually illuminate the surface quite a bit, while a “new earth” would leave it pitch black.

Ok, you just proved your own answer wrong. Try and picture this with me. This is what you’re describing.
Earth —- Dark Planet —- Sun —- Moon

Well, you say it “hides in the shadow of the moon”. Well, if the above model is true, the shadow of the moon would be extending out away from the earth since the sun is closer. In fact, the dark planet would have a shadow that covers the earth as it passes the sun (like the moon does, when there’s a solar eclipse). Your explanation is impossible, because you would see this dark planet instead of the moon before and after an eclipse, but that’s not the case.

Also, for the sizes of the bodies we can observe on earth to be true with your model, the moon would have to be immense, many thousands of times larger than the earth, and a number of times larger than the sun. Thanks to our knowledge of orbits, that would mean we’d have a moon-centric solar system.

seriously. The article states that you can’t survive in water. Right, that’s why we have SCUBA gear, old diving suits, and submarines. Water is actually very much like space, in terms of our ability to survive in it. That’s why astronauts train in water on earth first. A dive suit is to water as a space suit is to space. A submarine is to water as a spacecraft is to space. You can’t deny that there are astronauts on the ISS as we speak. What changes if they were to go from empty space to the surface of a celestial body with no atmosphere such as the moon? absolutely nothing.

So let me get this straight, you can see the moon, which you claim is past the sun, which would mean it would have to be much larger than the sun (since it appears larger than the sun on earth) and you can see it as it approaches the sun before an eclipse. Then all of a sudden, out of nowhere this dark planet rahu comes along and matched the exact apparent size, shape and orbit path of the moon only while it’s passing the sun (because remember, you could see the moon before and after, so it’s not blocking it there) and then immediately after the eclipse it’s gone?

What about lunar eclipses, where you can see the shadow of earth block the sun’s light from the moon? You can’t use the rahu arguement here, for 2 obvious reasons (actually, many obvious reasons but I’ll name 2 here). 1, during a lunar eclipse the moon isn’t completely dark thanks to earth shine (like moon shine but brighter) and other reflected light (off it’s edges) and 2, rahu would have to have an impossible orbit to line up with both solar and lunar eclipses.

    Hare krishna Prabhuji.,Dandvat Pranaam
    May i know about the author of the book”Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita As It Is” named mukund das prabhu.Had he any personal association with Srila Prabhupada.

    • This book is a compilation of direct quotes from Srila Prabhupada speaking about his own life. The author is Srila Prabhuapda, all Mukunda did was compile the quotes and he did a good job of it. He wrote a bit of rubbish on the last 2 pages but apart from that he did not write a single word in the book. It is a collection of Prabhupada quotes and the author of this book is Srila Prabhuapda.

    Prabhu Madhudvisa Dasa.Is Jagannath Krishna himself or is just an expansion of Krishna like Vishnu,Rama etc.In Iskcon lectures I heard that Jagannath is Krishna himself,they have proved this by saying a story from Skanda purana.Is this true or Iskcon lectures are just bogus?I found no video Prabhupad talking aboyt Lord Jagannath.Oh Prabhu kindly answer my doubts.Hare Krishna

    • Yes. Lord Jagannatah is Krishna Himself. It is Jagannatha [Krishna] Balarama and Krishna’s sister Subhadra.

      So Jagannatha is deity form of Krishna. He is representation of Krishna with His brother Balarama and sister Subhadra,

      It is deity manifestation of Krishna, Balarama and Lady Subhadra,

    Jai Govind

    I request you clear my doubts.I understand the complexities of life processes,cellular mechanisms and other natural phenomenon cannot be explained solely by reasoning and scientific theories as somewhere or other our knowledge is limited.I am a science student nd nature lover.After reading the article posted by you regarding the concept of the origin of life,a question arisen in my mind that krishna is all powerful,then, why he designed this universe in this complicated way?,why life originated? why he made all that dna etc matter space?what is his true nature? why are we given these bodies these reasoning abilities?why krishna waited for billions of years and made us take birth here?why prakrati and purush got seperated? who were those dinosaurs etc for souls are eternal were those dinosaurs primitive and other organisms we only? are there any planet lest earth having life?why will happen atlast for we are ultimately destined to reach our eternal govind? why doesn’t he appears now and clear all these doubts for one thing is sure that if even he messages in some ways we will submit to him?why krishna is so naughty why has he made everything complicated?I know these are childlish questions but still worthy to be answered…..

    I am a krishana devotee.I feel as if there is pure love for him deep in my heart.But at the same time I do believe in science.Sometimes i find myself stuck in between science emotions belief and devotion.I want to understand my Govind,I want to understand myself.

    I request my friends to please give answer to these questions.I hope i will get atleast answers of a few questions as i found this site quite appealing.

    Radhe krishna

    • Hare Krishna Jai Govind

      To clear your doubts you have to become Krishna conscious. Because unless you become Krishna conscious you will not be able to understand what Krishna consciousness is and you will remain continually bewildered.

      All these questions are irrelevant. You seem to accept that Govinda exists, that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Now you have to just surrender to the idea that you are His servant. And then you need to find out practically how you can engage in the service of Krishna. And to find out how to do this you need to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. And in the process of becoming Krishna conscious all your other questions will automatically be answered.

      The scientists can not understand anything. They only have very fragmental information about everything they study. The information we can gather through our material senses is very limited. There are so many things we can not perceive through our material senses. So they can not understand what they can not perceive.

      So instead of just speculating all these questions and being bewildered like this it is better to just admit that in our conditioned state with our very limited mind and our material senses we can not hope to understand Krishna or even this material world which is created ultimately by Krishna.

      The way to understand these things is to become Krishna conscious. We can not understand without becoming Krishna conscious.

      So you have to learn how to become Krishna conscious… That is the answer to all your questions. And Krishna consciousness is a science and that science is very elaborately presented in the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!
