While we respect the findings of scientists, we are not even aware of what has been said in our religious literature about scientific facts.
Some of them are :
Science tells us that water evaporates and turns clouds into rain bearing ones. But the same scientific fact is mentioned in ancient religious literature too. There is a verse which talks of how sea water evaporates and makes clouds heavy with moisture. It was mentioned in the poem sung by one of the Alwars "Kothai Nachiyar" popularly named as Aandal
Division of Atoms :
Again scientists for a long time said the atom could not be split, until it was proved otherwise. But centuries ago, the Tamil poet Kambar wrote of the splitting of the atom in his Kamba Ramayanam. He writes about Lord Narayana’s Narasimha avatara and recounts how Prahlada is taunted by his father Hiranyakasipu. The asura, Hiranyakasipu, asks his son Prahlada where Lord Narayana resides. Prahlada replies that He resides not only in an atom, but if an atom were to be split into a hundred parts, He would still be in every one of those parts. Thus an ancient Tamil treatise talks of the splitting of the atom, thereby showing that the ancient Tamils were aware of the possibility that an atom could be split.
