Yes, many apples, especially many Indian apples had fallen down before Newton had discovered Laws of Gravitation. Ancient Indian Astronomical texts are replete with Gravitational laws
Let us get into the facts….
1)“madhye samantandasya bhugolo vyomni tisthati
bibhranah paramam saktim brahmano dharanatmikam”
(Surya Sidhantha 12th chapter 32 sloka)
This means:
(first line)”In the midst of universe (Brahmanda), the spherical earth stands firm in the space.”
(second line)”because of the dharanatmika sakti, Earth is standing firm in the space without falling away.”

2)“akrsta saktisca mahi taya yat svastham guru svabhimukham svasaktya
akrsyate tatpatativa bhati same samantat kva patatviyam khe”
(Sidhanta Shiromani, Bhuvanakosa, 6th sloka)
In above Bhaskaracharya (11th Century AD) reveals that:
“Earth naturally attracts every object in the space towards itself .because of this attracting force, all objects fall on the earth .When there is balance in attraction among planets where would they fall?”
3)“cakranasah parinaham prithivya”
(Rig Veda 1.33.8)
It says:
“People who reside on the surface of the Earth’s circumference.”
4)“trinabhicakramajaranarvam yenema visva bhuvanani tasthuh”
(Rig Veda 1.164.1)
It says:
“All the celestial bodies (planets) are moving in elliptical orbits”
5)“sapta tva haritho rathe vahanti deva surya sociksesam vicaksana”
(Rig Veda 1.50.9)
“ava divastarayanti sapta suryasya rasmyah ”
(Atharva Veda 17.10.17.1)
It says:
“Sun’s seven colored rays are making a day”
Does that mean sun has only seven rays? No, sun emits millions of rays. But each ray of light has seven colors embedded in it. The Vedic terminology often refers to word “saptha asva ruda”.It actually means seven colored white sunrays .The Vedic meaning of word “asva” also means “light rays”.

These are very few facts from the ocean of the Knowledge i.e. “Indian Ancient Texts”. Please go to our coulter and follow it because our ancestors followed it and they became immortal. Please understand the Vedic thoughts and let us practice it. For many more facts and information read the book “Eternally Talented India 108 Facts” by Vivekananda Life Skills Academy, Hyderabad, (www.viswadham.org, omchandu@gmail.com, non-profit enterprise). So be proud of our ancestors and let us make India (Now) Glorious again.
If you are true “Indian” please forward this information to many peoples as much as possible.
Thank You!

not only is that not a question, that doesn’t say anything besides discuss the visual and easily observable phenomena that occur in the world.

No where is there any type of mathematical modeling or computational justification of these visualizations and as such don’t really deserve merit as anything beyond mere observations.

Technically, your paragraph doesn’t even have a point. It’s just paragraphs of snippets of religious texts. It doesn’t make a claim or have a thesis. You just threw something together with the consistency of a squirrel’s nest.

    So by chance they got a few things right. Just about every religion can claim that.References :

    Don’t forget, Newton had the foresight to realize that those findings applied throughout the Universe. Of course, India has a great heritage in the maths and scientists, but credit should be given where it is due.References :

    it is one thing for the Vedas to say that the Earth is a sphere. That is a fine observation and it is possible that the idea came to the west from India perhaps 2500 years ago. It is another for them to calculate the diameter or circumference of the Earth. That was done by Eratosthenes of Alexandria more than 2,200 years ago. Your vedas do not tell us that.

    It is one thing for the vedas to say that Earth attracts every object in space toward itself. A true observation. But did they say that every object in the Universe attracts every other object with a force which is proportional to the product of their masses, divided by the square of the distance between them? No, and that is the difference between Newton and the vedas.

    Newton did not form the laws of gravity to account for apples falling. That is a tale for children. He did it to account for the motion of the planets. His law of universal gravity forms only a part of his Principia which is mostly concerned with the laws of motion and he had to invent a new form of mathematics to do that.References :
