Srila Prabhupada says, ”you have invented something to accelerate death. That’s all. Is that very, very good credit?”……
#Prabhupada: They have invented nuclear weapon. What is that? To kill. But have you invented something so that no more men will die? That is credit. Man is dying every moment, so you have invented something to accelerate that death. That’s all. Is that very, very good credit? So there is no solution of death. They are trying to stop the overpopulation. But where is the solution? So there is no solution for birth, there is no solution for death, there is no solution for disease and there is no solution for old age. There was a great scientist, Professor Einstein, he also died in old age. Why did he not stop to check old age? Everyone is trying to remain youthful. Where is that process? So they do not care how to solve this, because this is beyond their means. They are giving something bluff, that’s all. They do not care what is the real problem, how to solve it. They do not care for it. But here is a movement, Krsna consciousness. There is the real solution of all problems, if people take it seriously. Yes. And the whole thing is described in the Bhagavad-gita. Let them try to understand it. At least, make an experiment. Why they are so much callous and going in their own way?

Prabhupada: Everyone is dying, and they accelerate death. And that is taken as scientific.
Satsvarupa: They are also making research how to stop death.
Prabhupada: So that is in our hands; that is not in their hands.

Krsnadasa: Coincidentally, the original purpose of the hydrogen bomb was to prevent death, to end the Second World War as soon as possible.
Prabhupada: How they can prevent? That he does not know, how to prevent. He can accelerate, that’s all.

Prabhupada: The modern scientist, they are very much proud of their advancement, but they have no solution of these unpleasant things. They cannot make anything which will check death or which will check disease or which will check old age. That is not possible. You can manufacture something which will accelerate death, but you cannot manufacture anything which will stop death. That is not in your power.
