Not at all. It is you who have done that. You have not replied to a single point that I made. You evaded all the issues. Like, how many copies of the Mahabharata are there in *any* Australian library? How many times is it mentioned in *any* media? In my experience, the number is exactly ZERO. And let us not forget, the Mahabharata is by far the greatest work of epic literature the world has ever known. How many times has any Indian scholar been given any prominence in any Australian media? Zero. How many times has any genuine Indian celebrity asked to come to a talk show? Zero.

Hunter1 A most lousy excuse, though a tidy escape line. Lousy relativist thinking, the bane of the modern world. You are an Einsteinian, evidently. Your entire worldview is, thus, totally wrong. No further discussion...
If I get
Quite. Put your tail between your hind legs and run. Loser. Basically you are upset because I am not sucking up to you, by accepting your axioms. Tough luck.
Rubbish. I am a Hindu, and you are not. Who are you to say anything about my beliefs and the beliefs of other Hindus? All you show is astounding impertinence. The meaning and relevance of Hinduism is for Hindus, and it is not defined by foreigners.
Rubbish. You have a closed mind on the wonderful caste system. It gives Indians great married lives, loving children, great skills, functional diversity, higher comradeship, carries down tradition, keeps society functioning smoothly, lowers the crime rate.... the benefits are great. The problem was, it was counter to professionalism, but that too is changing, with widening of opportunities to all castes.
There is *no* contradiction between the Vedanta and the varna system. They in fact re-inforce each other, like the Vedas reinforce the Puranas. The jatis fold to various extents in the varna system. There is essentially no hierarchy in the varna system - each varna had its own wonderful strengths. A sense of hierarchy has been artificially imposed by Hindu-haters. The Vedantic philosophy begins, after the Vedas-Puranas end. They explain the deeper meaning of the Vedas and Puranas, and have direct impact upon an individual's way of thinking. The whole society, ulitmately, can be thus Vedantic. The universality of Vedanta is never restricted by varna. To subscribe to this mendacious idea, is indeed treacherous, if one says one follows Sanatan Dharma.
Yet you show no understanding here, of anything I have written. Still, I compliment myself that at least I thought you were better than you are, and spent time on you, accordingly.
I am more sad than bitter about this, and not for myself, but for the cause of science; as for myself, I have many other things to be very happy about. But where did I say I am bitter? You are making this up. Have no sense of morals?

Alas, I don't expect to ever have the time for that. Too much to do, too little time to do it in. Agreed, but experience is a very subjective thing. We...
No, you are lying shamelessly here. My arguments are not shown to be very silly. They are simply said to be very silly, by those who do not even show that they understand them. You take blind rejection for argument. How pathetic.

Ah, Hunter! Let us see what you have got. Hunter1 Fair enough. But if you don't know anything, if it has...
But as I said earlier, it will take time - maybe ten years, maybe 100-300 years, for my new ideas to be universally accepted. That is simply how the world works! Ah well.
Well, if that is the extent of their argument, that shows the quality of their nature. And exposes the quality of your intelligence. I too am sorry that they graduated from the insbreastutions I did. And those who know me, will side with me. Let someone sue me, let any reputed insbreastution take me to court, for what I have written. Let the courts decide who is right. That is my challenge. I have no faith in the scientific estahlishment, but I have faith in the legal system. Or, let them insult me. And then I will sue them.
What a lie. To those who called me names, in the most recent posting "Discussions on Relativity" I did not insult at all, just gave smilies. To those who were polite, I gave long and detailed explanations. I have been doing this, for years. I am sure that many people hold that my new ideas are correct. That gives me satisfaction.
You are simply making declarations. You have shown no understanding at all, of what I have been writing. It is you who is being insulting and dismissive, and then projecting your own atbreastudes upon me.
