Three times history has LIED about groundbreaking discoveries.
They say that history is written by the winners, and this is not more true than in scientific breakthroughs.
We are taught in school about the way certain laws of the universe work, but we are also told who ‘discovered’ them.
However, there are certain times when the history books are incorrect.
The laws of gravity, atomic flight theory and flight were all discovered way before the Western world believes they were.
If you ask someone who discovered the laws of gravity, they will probably say Isaac Newton. When in reality, it was worked our far earlier than him by an Indian mathematician known as Bhaskaracharya.
His works ‘Lilaviti’ and ‘Bijaganita’ are little-known by the rest of the world, but they actually contain the secrets of gravity. These works were written some 500 years before Newton ‘discovered’ gravity.
“Objects fall on earth due to a force of attraction by the earth. Therefore, the earth, planets, constellations, the moon, and the sun are held in orbit due to this attraction.”
We consider that the invention of flying machines are only 100 or so years old. But again, this is not true. There are Ancient Indian transcripts in which ‘flying machines’ are described. These futuristic descriptions of flying machines are thought to date back to the Ramayana and Mahabharata times.
Curiously, they describe different types of flying machines – machines which can travel from place to place; those that travel from one country to another; and finally ones which travel between planets. These strange descriptions have also been left out of the history books. And of course, there is the unexplained hieroglyphs of the helicopter.
The atom bomb and sub-atomic theory is another scientific model which most people think was discovered in the 20th century. Contrary to this belief, there is evidence to suggest that is was actually discovered 2,600 years ago in Ancient India.
An Indian Sage known as Kashyap documented what he called ‘Kanad,’ as ‘Kan’ which means ‘the smallest particle’ in Sanskrit. He even adopted these names as nicknames after dedicating his time to particles. He theorized that anu (atoms) could be linked in different ways to produce different outcomes, this is the basis of all atomic theory.
Kashyap explained chemical changes such as heat and the blackening of a pot over time, and theorized that this is due to chemical reactions that the human eye cannot see.
