印官员称最早发现万有引力的不是牛顿,而是一名印度数学家

JAIPUR: A Rajasthan minister known for his controversial remarks has now claimed that Indian mathematician and astronomer Brahmagupta-II (598-670) discovered the law of gravity over 1,000 years before Issac Newton (1642-1727) did.
Speaking at the 72nd foundation day ceremony of Rajasthan University on Monday, state education minister Vasudev Devnani wondered why the "fact" was not included in the academic curriculum.

"Since childhood, we have been reading that Newton discovered the law of gravity, but in reality, an Indian astronomer discovered it, if you revisit history," said Devani.

Amid criticism, the minister asked his detractors on Tuesday to read texts and books by Brahmagupta before passing any judgement on his statement. "An impression is being made that I have made a fictional statement. I would not comment on my statement. Rather, I would ask those who have expressed disbelief and shock to at least read the texts of Brahmagupta or read the research carried out on him by modern scientists," he added.

印度一位地方教育官员打算挑战历史。该官员称,最早发现万有引力的并不是牛顿,而是一名印度数学家,而且这位印度科学家发现万有引力的时间要比牛顿早一千多年。

向来发表有争议性言论而著称的拉贾斯坦邦教育部长瓦苏德夫•德夫纳尼声称,印度数学家和天文学家婆罗摩笈多二世(Brahmagupta-II,598-670)首先发现了万有引力定律,这比牛顿(1642-1727)发现的时间早了一千多年。

1月8日,在拉贾斯坦邦大学举行的第72届奠基仪式上,瓦苏德夫•德夫纳尼发问,为何该“事实”没有纳入学术大纲中?他说:“自上小学以来,我们的教材上写的都是牛顿发现了万有引力定律,但实际上,如果你重温历史,你会发现它是一位印度天文学家首先发现的。”

没错, Puspak Viman比莱特兄弟早(发明飞机)..

古代的Bramhastra,其实就是原子弹的一种

Knowledge always existed. Scientists only gave explanations to this already existing knowledge but did not discover already existed knowledge.

知识本来就存在

科学家只是对已经存在的知识给出解释而已,并不算发现。

这是事实

不过有些人是不会买账的
