By Michael A. Cremo (Drutakarma Das): The Forbidden Archeologist
I presented this paper at The Sanskrit Tradition in the Modern World conference at the
University of Newcastle, England, on May 19, 2000.
The interactions among science, Hinduism, and Christianity are as complex as those in the three-body problem of astrophysics. In practice, astrophysicists select a central body, say the Earth, with a second body, the Moon orbiting it, and then try to determine the perturbations induced in the motion of the Moon by the attraction of the third body, the Sun. There is no general solution for this problem. This means that independent of observations one cannot calculate very far in advance (or very far into the past) the exact position of the Moon relative to the other two bodies. The perturbations of the Moon’s orbit, induced by the attractions of the Earth and Sun, are incalculably complex, as are the movements of Hinduism in relation to the twin influences of science and Christianity. The reactions provoked by my book Forbidden Archeology, from scientists, scholars, and religionists, provide useful data for examination of a three-body problem in the study of Hinduism, Christianity, and science.
