I suppose some scientists can be devoutly religious...

The Hindu stories do contain some interesting ideas: The Vimana (a flying machine), the gods lived in palaces 'floating' in the Welkin, Indra's chariot flying through the air with the power of 10,000 horses, an explosive force set off by uttering a mantra (reading the handbook?) of which the light flash burnt only one side of the trees in the forest and the warriors knew they had to divest themselves of armour and wash in the nearest river, and so-on...

More entertaining than than the bible stuff.
