Prabhupāda: No, why they cannot, by scientific, chemical or physical way, they cannot take the flavor from the earth?
Bali-mardana: They do make synthetic scents.
Siddha-svarūpa: They come out synthetic, though; they do not smell the same.
Bali-mardana: Not as good.
Ambarīṣa: Actually they make perfumes from flowers.
Prabhupāda: Flowers, yes. That is... But not you take some dirt and extract the flavor. Then I will know that you are scientist. (laughter) (break) ...the vast water, but they cannot make it sweet. That you will have to depend on God. The water is, actually is taken, and it is made sweet. So how they can deny the hand of God?
Harikeśa: They have some water distillation plants now.
Prabhupāda: That is nonsense. He may distill one pound of water. That does not mean that... Why they are unnecessarily proud, and denying the authority of God? How foolish they are. Therefore I don't like them. The most heinous type of atheist; not gentlemen. (break) Whenever they hold some conference they say, "Don't talk of God. Then you cannot come to the conference." Do they not? What is that principle?
Bali-mardana: Yes, yes, they do that. There was a conference on biology and evolution, and they made a rule at the beginning of the conference that "Whatever we discuss from now on is all right, except that we will not discuss about God or anything, any divine factor of creation."
Prabhupāda: Just see how much atheist they are. Shameless atheist. Other atheists, they have got some shame. But these people are shameless. Shameless.
Bali-mardana: "Because we cannot see God in our laboratory, therefore we will not discuss Him."
Prabhupāda: But why do you teach us? We do not see whatever you say. We do not, so why do you place upon us? If seeing is evidence, that we don't see what nonsense you are talking.
Siddha-svarūpa: We don't see their atoms. We don't see their sputniks flying and landing or anything.
Prabhupāda: Why do you talk?
Bali-mardana: They want to replace... The want to put themselves in the place of the supreme authority.
Prabhupāda: No, no, that's all right. If that is your reason, that you don't see God. But we don't see that you are going to the moon planet. Why you make us believe that you are going to moon planet?
