Rādhā-vallabha: In Los Angeles papers they quoted you saying that, that they didn't go to the moon.
Rādhā-vallabha: They quoted you as saying this in Los Angeles, in a newspaper. Also your Monday-Tuesday example . . ., Sunday-Monday. They put that in the newspaper.
Prabhupāda: Nobody can answer that. The common sense. Can any one of you answer why Sunday first and Monday next? You are all of the scientists. Why don't you say? It is commonsense question, "Why Sunday first and next . . .?" All over the world. In the human society, everywhere you go, they will say Sunday first, Monday second. In India, Ravivāra. Ravi. Ravi means sun. And Somavāra. Somavāra means Monday. The planetary system is so arranged, first of all sun, then moon. Then Mars, then Saturn, Saturday. Saturn is last. Even Svarūpa Dāmodara has not answered.
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: He cannot meet the challenge.
Prabhupāda: Any scientist here who can answer why Sunday first and Monday second?
Janāhlāda: I'm not a scientist, but I always thought that the ancients thought that the sun was first because without telescopes or without light-measuring instruments it was bigger and it looked closer.
Prabhupāda: That's a fact. Sunday is first, and Monday—moon is beyond sun. If they accept that nobody can approach sun, then how they can approach moon? In calculation, eighteen thousand miles per hour, and if the moon is situated 95,000,000 miles, then how they can go in four days? These are my questions. They have not been answered. It takes at least seven months. And they went in four days, and the man's mother . . . His photograph was there. She said, "Oh, at last my son has gone there." You have seen that photograph? I have seen it. Mother was satisfied. This is going on.
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Next verse?
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Text 19. Tān ahaṁ dviṣataḥ krūrān saṁsāreṣu narādhamān . . . (BG 16.19).
Prabhupāda: This is their result. These rascals, atheist class, they'll suffer in this way. That is described now. Hmm.
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Kṣipāmy ajasram aśubhān āsurīṣv eva yoniṣu. "Those who are envious and mischievous, who are the lowest among men, are cast by Me into the ocean of material existence, into various demoniac species of life."
