Mysteries of the Sacred Universe 1; Hieronimus Interview

21st Century Radio with Bob Hieronimus - March 18, 2001 / (323)

Thompson discusses his book, Mysteries of the Sacred Universe (2000), with radio show host Bob Hieronimus, who is intrigued by Thompson’s portrayal of Bhaktivedanta Swami’s translation of the Fifth Canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam. Thompson explores the intellectual foundation of Bhu-mandala described in the Bhagavatam, and proposes that it incorporates accurate mathematical representations of the observable solar system. That complicates a naïve flat-earth analysis popular in contemporary scholarship.
