Reality Check India

Ram Sethu – no study was ever done !

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on September 23, 2007

Will the real scientists please stand up ?

See this related post by the real fake rational scientist.

The ASI has confirmed the following today to the media.

Fable or fact, even the Archaeological Survey of India doesn’t really know. Sources within the ASI have confirmed to CNN-IBN that the ASI never conducted any study or investigation on the Ram Setu.

. . .

Which means the controversial September 12th affidavit to the Supreme Court saying there was no historical proof of the Setu being man-made was submitted without conducting a study.

. . .

While the ASI bore the brunt of challenging faith and two of its officials awarded suspensions orders, sources in the ASI confirm that they would have conducted a study on the Ram Setu if they had been commissioned to do so.

This is unbelievable, but true. Without conducting any study whatsover in and around the Pamban, Mandapam, Danushkodi, Mannar Island (SL) and the underwater environs – the ASI had the gall to submit an affidavit to the highest court of the land. (RC had asked several questions in this post)

Should’nt the ASI have made use of this opportunity to declare that it had no scientific data to take a position on the issue, instead of  grandstanding ?

To conclude. What is a real fake rational scientist to make out of this affidavit ?

Two words : Wild Guess


Even after removing the outrageous paragraphs, the affidavit will have no scientific or rational legs to stand on. You cannot use science to prove anything in the religious domain. Yes, not even the absurdity or Narasimha Avatar or Sanjeevani mountain. Sorry for bringing this reality check to your doorstep. Try attacking magic and voodoo, you have a better chance there. If you want to take  a crack at god, try taking on Kurt Godel first. It might even win you a prize. 

India, PhDs, and Science.

Oil, lassi, and rosewater.

C’est la vie!

    Are they reading your blog? 🙂

    However, the quoted news link is based on sources rather than an official admission by the ASI. If official, they’ll be in serious serious trouble – legally and politically.

    Hope this news item will get picked up by media in a big way – but looks like it’ll easily get overshadowed by news revolving around the stupid beheading statement.

    No one is surprised by this bit of news.We all knew all along that the ASI was just shooting from the hip.Now we have solid scientific, rational and verifiable proof to prove that :).

    If you want to take a crack at god, try taking on Kurt Godel first. That is way beyond the competence of the peabrains and koojas who run the current alliance in TN. With the Vice Chancellor’s seat going for Rs. 5 crore, this anti-intellectual bunch wouldn’t be able to find their you know what even with a torch!

    Yo phreak ma-man, stop phreaking out! Conduct a scientific analysis:

    a. Can you post? Has there been historic evidence of your posts on these blogs? if yes, see below.

    b. How do we know it is you and not some other phreak? Are you sure?

    c. Were you drunk when you posted this?

    d. Do you have a Posting degree? Are you competent?

    e. Have you posted on other blogs, and if so why do you feel this blog is special, and thus the need to pot on this?

    f. If you can provide an affidavit that you can answer the above satisfactorily, please go through the questions again, this time assuming you have the competence to do so.

    Repeat a->f till you have achieved enough evidence and logical explanations and zero in to the cause of your original speculation. Good luck!
