Product description

About the Author

Professor C. K. Raju started off conventionally as a formal mathematician. After an MSc from the Centre of Advanced Study in Mathematics, Mumbai, followed by a PhD from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, he taught mathematics at Pune University for several years. He researched in functional analysis and its applications to mathematical physics, especially infinities in general relativity and quantum field theory. Later, he played a key role in building India's first supercomputer, Param. In Cultural Foundations of Mathematics (Pearson Longman, 2007) he established that calculus developed in India, and was transmitted to Europe where it was poorly understood just because Europeans mixed math with religion. Those difficulties with calculus led to Newton's error about time in physics. In Time: Towards a Consistent Theory (Kluwer Academic, 1994), and The Eleven Pictures of Time (Sage, 2003), he had earlier explained how correcting that error about time leads to a reformulation of physics using functional differential equations. He was awarded a gold medal in 2010, in Hungary, for correcting Einstein's related mathematical mistake. While visiting the School of Mathematical Sciences of the Universiti Sains Malaysia he taught calculus, in three countries, with a different philosophy called zeroism. This demonstrated that math becomes easy if delinked from Western theology. He was an editor of the Journal of Indian Council of Philosophical Research. His popular books include Is Science Western in Origin? (Multiversity, 2009).

This narrative is a perfect example of how even though facts are out in the public, we wont usually connect the dots to realize the lies peddled to us by organized cults. It would have taken immense effort to collect all the facts mentioned in the book. Connecting the dots is the easiest thing.

A systematic annihilation of the myth "most of secular scientific knowledge has originated in Greece". It is the single biggest crime committed against human psych by current secular educators. Many of us would have had a feeling that it is a myth. We can even see the means and opportunity of the church to carry out such a crime through its "world class" universities. After all, even during the age of Internet, authorities get away with lying for several years before truth is uncovered. So it must be very easy in medieval times. The challenge is not finding the means and opportunity. The challenge is finding a motive. You can't really charge them guilty without it. This book provides exactly that, the motive: Why is it necessary for a systematic myth building about origin of knowledge in Greece? What is the necessity for the church(priests to be precise) to start such a myth?

This book is more enlightening to an honest Christian who believes in the doctrine of love but is shocked by doctrine of sin used by Church throughout history to oppress people.

In spirit of following the author's advice in the epilogue, the best way to read the book is to check every fact mentioned by the author after each chapter:
As for those young people who are victims of these biases, get rid of those biases even if they are forced on you by your parents and teachers. A simple way to do so is to ask questions. If the answers sound like story-telling, used to preserve lies, you know what trick is at work. Remember, they can’t capture your mind without your consent. Don’t give that consent: keep asking questions, and see how those stories fall apart.
