LOL “science”

Rig Veda a treasure trove of transgenics:

There is a sudden global interest in India’s ancient scriptures—The Vedas. The Rig Veda in particular has attracted lot of attention in the recent past. Experts have started the decoding of vedas for unraveling the scientific knowledge that the treasure book holds.The first revelations about transgenic animal sciences will be done by an Indian vedic scientist, Dr Chandraprakash Trivedi, at an international conference on human genetics that will be held in March in Cape Town.

Muslims do this too, The Bible, the Qu’ran and Science: The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge. I also know that Mormons engage in some of this, like the laughable idea that Nephi traveled to the New World in a submarine in 600 BCE. But to my knowledge even the most cretinous Christian fundamentalists seem to balk at transforming their fantasy into science fiction (instead, they often retrofit science to fit their superstitions, e.g., Creation Science).
