It´s not Praphubada´s idea, that Krishna is blue, he´s blue in all ancient pictures and texts as far as I know. And he´s not the only one, Shiva and Vishnu were also blue, though there are different mythical stories explaining this. Who knows, maybe they really were aliens. Or it was energy field. Or it has purely symbolic meaning. I don´t think it has anything to do with taking colloidal silver
.


What praphubada is saying is that the form of a blue person that is Krishna should be worshipped, as opposed to God as a being of light or any type of natural law of the universe. Basically he is saying to worship a blue man, and the only rational way of becoming blue is to take colloidal silver, right? Or colloidal silver does not really do this. I don't know, I'm just raising speculation, but saying Krishna is blue because of his transcendental aura is not exactly rational scientifically, am I right?

There is a genetic defect that causes blue appearence, I always attributed it to that. www.rootsweb.ancestry.com...

Nope, it just means that Krishna is a character depicted with blue skin. Did the Na'vi take colloidal silver? Do clown fish take colloidal silver? There are all sorts of explanations for something being blue.

I don't know why you went for "colloidal silver" over "mythic embellishment".

Colloidal silver makes your skin turn blue, so would that mean Krishna took collodial silver?


Colloidal silver doesn't make your skin turn blue! If it did, I would be blue.

What you are referring to is a condition called argyria which can result from too much exposure to any form of silver.


Argyria (ISV from Greek: ἄργυρος argyros silver + -ia) is a condition caused by improper exposure to chemical forms of the element silver, silver dust, or silver compounds.[1] The most dramatic symptom of argyria is that the skin becomes blue or bluish-grey colored. Argyria may be found as generalized argyria or local argyria.


Argyria occurs in people who ingest or inhale silver in large quantities over a long period (several months to many years). People who work in factories that manufacture silver can also breathe in silver or its compounds. In the past, some of these workers have become argyric.


Yeah, it's from Wikipedia but it's true.

The answer to many questions like this can often be found by a quick Wikipedia search. In this case, we find that Krishna's skin isn't always shown as blue (that is a more modern "take" on it, just as the "blond-ish Jesus with long hair and white robe" is actually a modern depiction of Jesus -- and a historical anachronism, too.) So if you check the article, where it talks about "iconography" (depiction) it says that his name means "a dark color -- often the color blue" and is also the same word used for "all attractive (i.e., a powerful and compelling presence)")

So, a check of references that are appropriate to the culture would be the right way to research this.

I've seen some pretty silly answers on the Internet by people who wouldn't know the difference between Hare Krishna and Hurricane Katrina.

I KNEW I had seen this somewhere before. Geez, Filo, don't at least have the decency to give credit where it's actually due?

You not only ripped this off from, but even misrepresented, what THIS youtube user was proposing in the following video, posted over two YEARS ago-

hey genius, has it ever occurred to you that two people could come up with similar ideas to each other? The fact that you claim I am misrepresenting him is proof I had this idea independent of his. So if you want to research every theory every posted before you say something for fear you may just be plagiarising, that's your perogative, frankly I could care less.

this is another possible explanation

The psilocybin mushroom has properties similar to that of the amanita and has also been worshipped/mythologized throughout history. Unlike the amanita, fruit of the tree, psilocybin grows from the dung of a cow.
In India cows are worshipped (hence “holy cow”) for many reasons, but especially for their holy #/holy crap.

The ancient Egyptians revered Mother Hathor, the heavenly cow whose body was the firmament and who daily gave birth to Horus-Ra, her Golden Calf.

In South East Asia the elephant is revered over other animals, like the cow in India, because magic mushrooms grow in elephant dung as well (hence Dumbo the flying elephant).

Psilocybin mushrooms turn a dark blue when bruised or dried and so are usually depicted as such. This is why Ganesh (Pikanadt), the Hindu elephant man god, is blue and rules the realms of art and creativity.

Other Hindu gods are also blue like Shiva or Vishnu who are depicted with serpents around his head looking much like a mushroom. Krishna is blue too usually shown with a cow to his side. The Cartoon “Smurfs” are blue like psilocybin, they all wear liberty cap hats, and live in amanita muscaria houses!


i just saw the Smurfs conection -

Since I came on the internet I have realised that there are very very few unique thoughts, as I read the op I thought hm plausible, folk came along and educated me that it was almost certainly not so, fine I go away entertained and educated, no need whatsoever for aggression or rudeness, get real people
