    Its all chewing the chewed.

    There is no such thing as a new idea.

    Everything being eternal how could there be?

    The atom is discussed in the Veda long before science discovered it.

    The speed of light has been given by the Veda long before science found it.

    Nothing is new and man is just chewing the chewed over and over believing everything is wonderful and new.

    The only new thing in this world are the names and faces of the same people who where here before.

    And for good reason. New ideas are, more often than not, not as good as the old ones. Scepticism is a good thing.
    But obviously we mustn't let our bias go too far, and scepticism shouldn't mean we never accept anything.

    That's the power of falsifiable logic of Carl Popper. It advances science.
