1. Modern scientists: “probably”

    Tamala Krsna: This is the book of the rascal scientists. They describe the solar system according to their nonsense. The solar system… Gives all the calculations. They calculated how much it weighs on each planet. [laughs] They haven’t even been there. They say that each planet has moons. Says here — this is how scientific they are — “Pluto was discovered only in 1930, and as yet, little is known about this remote planet. Pluto is much smaller than Neptune and has a diameter probably about…”

    Prabhupada: “Probably.”

    Tamala Krsna: “…half the size.”

    Prabhupada: “Probably.”

    Tamala Krsna: “The orbit of Pluto is extremely elliptical, and the day is some 6,109 hours long. There is probably no atmosphere, and there are no known moons.”

    Prabhupada: “Probably.” Their science is “probably.” Probably it is science; otherwise it is nonsense.
