1. “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. [laughter]

    Tamala Krsna: It says here, “The moon is 238,860 miles from the earth. It has no atmosphere, no weather and no wind.”

    Prabhupada: “Probably.” Everything “probably.”

    Tamala Krsna: It says here, “There is a thick dust covering and no evidence to suggest that the moon has ever supported life.” In that newspaper article the man who is exposing them said — because they say it is covered by dust — “How is it that no dust is shown on the astronauts’ suits when they walked around?” He says, “If there’s such a thick dust, then, when the rocket landed, it would have made a pocket within that dust.” He says, “But there’s no crater around the rocket. Then how is it possible that these things are like that?” ‘Cause actually they forgot. When they were making the stage-setting in Arizona, they forgot these points.
