Conversations and Morning Walks

1976 Conversations and Morning Walks

No, no, may be on this planet, but it doesn't matter that it is extinct. You have not seen.
Morning Walk -- July 12, 1976, New York:

Rāmeśvara: They are convinced that dinosaurs, these gigantic animals, were living on this planet millions of years ago. They found some bones, and they have created the form of the animal body.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Is it true that there were big dinosaur bodies?

Prabhupāda: If they were, it is still now.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Oh, wow.

Prabhupāda: We don't say it is extinct.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: But you've explained that even if not here then it must be on another planet.

Prabhupāda: Yes, another. This planet, what you have seen?

Rāmeśvara: That's the point, what we have seen about this planet?

Devotee (1): Could still be here. They found one in, where is that? In Ireland?

Prabhupāda: Cannot be extinct, that is not possible.

Devotee (1): In that lake?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: But do you think they were on this planet?

Prabhupāda: No, no, may be on this planet, but it doesn't matter that it is extinct. You have not seen.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: No, that's a fact.

Rāmeśvara: Their idea is that at that time man was living in the form of half monkey, half man in a cave, and gradually he evolved to become more civilized.

Prabhupāda: That is still there. Kinnaras. Kinnaras means it is doubtful whether he is man or monkey.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Wow.

Prabhupāda: There is a Kinnara-loka. Kimpuruṣa. Kinnara. They are still existing. It is not that they are finished.

Hari-śauri: I was reading a magazine when we were on the plane, and it was describing this type of monkey man, that they are being called, they existed in snow wastes.

Prabhupāda: Or what is called? The big...?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Orangutan, gorilla.

Prabhupāda: Gorilla, they are like men.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes, they are. Very much like men. We see them in the zoo.

Prabhupāda: They have got their senses like men.

Hari-śauri: There's another species they call the Yeti. They say it exists in the Himalayan regions. But they've not been able to capture one because, uh... But there's been many citings and reportings of it.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: These scientists, they find one little bone and they make a hundred-foot body out of their mind. They say, "Well if this bone was like this, then the whole thing must have looked like this."

Rāmeśvara: That is the Museum of Natural History. They spend millions of dollars on these museums, making these displays. (break) (walking)
