A few weeks ago I had written an article about twenty five of the many pseudoscientific rationalisations of Hindu traditions floating around the internet. If there’s one thing a Hindu likes, that is validating their beliefs using science. It doesn’t matter to them that they’ve been fed with lies. Hell, they don’t even realise it most of the time. It certainly doesn’t help that they also do have a very skewed idea of what science really constitutes. It’s because of their ignorance that they’re happy assimilating the extremely widespread lie that Hinduism is scientific; they don’t bother verifying any of it.
Every so often, I come upon online articles suggesting that Hindu rites, rituals and traditions are scientific. That’s to say, the loony stuff they do all the time has lesser to do with their latent lunacy than to do with science. It’s extremely easy to call bullshit on those claims and their explanations; they reek of scientific illiteracy. That’s exactly what’s not happening though. Those articles are shared in the millions and it’s not all in jest. The majority of them actually believe it.
