Here we have two dishonest sources of information: one is the scientist and another is the journalist. Where is the dishonesty? To lie passing off something for something else. Or, as in other cases, passing off theories for facts.
Both people have the same necessity: money, to sell something just to have a salary at the end of the month.
As we have never heard about this “extraordinary scientific breakthrough” before this video, you’ll see that you’ll never hear again about it. I have seen this the whole of my life in countless other occasions, like producing life from the laboratory, exoplanets where people can go live, and so on and so forth.
If this finding had been a fact, there wouldn’t be a single person in this planet who would be talking about anything else. But only an unknown “scientist” and unknown journalist are talking about this through a badly done video.
But the real problem is that the people believe in blind faith whatever comes from science and from the media without even questioning. And after having the gut to reject religion because “there is no proof.”
Reactivate the heart and the brain functions after they have stopped working for a short while (in the video it is said few minutes) is something that has been done for centuries. If you want to call it resuscitation you may call it so but it’s not. The fact is that the person is not dead yet. When the soul leaves the body can’t be recalled back in the body with mechanical means. We do find in vedic literature several cases of souls returning or being called back in their bodies after their demise but it can’t be done in that way.
Therefore if in the future there will be no death then we’ll rest our case. Until then this is another case of (as Srila Prabhupada calls it) “cheating propensity”.
