Science Channel video clip saying Ram Setu was man made goes viral on social media

Science Channel is a popular scientific documentary channel which is part of the Discovery communications network. It is estimated that about 75.48 million American households subscribe to this channel. A few of the popular TV programs aired by the network include Mythbusters, How its Made and Through the wormhole with Morgan Freeman.

One of the programs aired by the network is What on Earth, which uses satellite imagery to explore unexplained objects which defy explanation. On Monday, the official twitter handle of this network shared one of the clips from this program titled Ancient Land Bridge:

This clip takes help of images sent by a NASA satellite which captured images of large submerged objects running between India and Sri Lanka. The clip claimed that close investigations have suggested that this line of rocks is more than 48 KM long. It then detailed the Ramayana angle to this structure, where it is believed that Lord Ram built this bridge to cross over from India to Sri Lanka.

These stones as per oceanographers are placed on a shoal/sandbar which occur in shallow water where sand can accumulate between two landmasses. As per the narrator, even though the sandbar may be a natural occurrence the rocks sitting atop may not be so. One cast member thus claimed that the stones were brought from afar and set on top of the sandbar.

Things are taken up a notch when the clip mentions a geological claim about the rocks placed above the sand, predating it by about 3000 years. As per claims, these rocks are about 7000 years old while the sand present below it is a mere 4000 years old. This as per the video clip suggests that the structure isn’t natural but was made by men.

Considering the significance of this video clip, people decided to react in large numbers:

Apart from reacting, social media users also proceeded to share this clip in wide numbers. Till the writing of this report, the video clip has about 123,000 views and more than 10,000 Retweets.

Now one wonders whether such a widespread and positive response for this video clip, would spur worldwide science networks to further develop documentaries exploring Indic history and beliefs which till date have largely been brushed off as myths by the leftist establishment.
