Hindu Astrology has always come to stand for prediction, and therefore unscientific. However, the original texts clearly distinguish between Jyautishya and Phala Jyautishya. Jyautishya means astronomy while the latter term literally means “astronomy with a result/fruit,” which approximates in meaning to astrology. By his own account, AKR’s father was a phala jyautishi. Secondly, in calling the Gita a religious text, which always means a Hindu equivalent text to the Koran or Bible , AKR displays the first instance of either ignorance or deliberate mischaracterization. The paper provides numerous instances to lead me to believe that the latter is true.
Now, let’s bet. How many different pairs of boobs has this Sandeep person felt (up?).
PS: Gasquet fan, where is the widget?
PPS: Both boys, namely this Sandeep person and the author he dissects, don’t seem to have read Kant. They should really shut up — but they (or he) will not and we can’t bet on a certainty.
