In continuation to this question. I got a big doubt.
Some people are arguing that any questions regarding science will not be encouraged in this site. It is rational to say that any question asking for scientific explanation is off topic. But it is irrational that a question asking for scientific reference from scriptures is off topic.
Modern mathematics, science, geography, medicine etc., are developed relatively very recent compared to Hindu scriptures. If we avoid those question on Hindu SE, even the Hindu texts contain about that sciences, because of the reason that they got separate SE, or not consistent with modern science, then some part of text from Hindu texts will become off topic.
And if in future the subjects like astrology, yoga etc., is accepted by scientific community and a separate stack site comes for that, will those questions become off topic later?
The science that present in texts may or may not be consistent with the science in Hindu texts. So science SE sites may not consider science that is in Hindu texts, then what about such science in Hindu texts? no site deals with it right?
Isn't it a form of hijacking Hindu sciences, which are directly from scriptures?
