Dear Ahmed, The reality that 24,000 Christian sects exist in the world – and especially the Jehovah’s Witnesses - proves conclusively that no human on earth, not even Jesus, Mohammed, Lord Krishna, Confucius, Buddha, Mahavira, Brahm, Moses, or whoever, can represent God in any way. If the patriarchs of those 24,000 sects had discovered any truths – there would be no religions at all on earth and

Ahmed, I see I forgot to include the notes I promised. here they are. The Cologne Sanskrit Lexicon gives the following definition of the word Meru: Name of a fabulous mountain (regarded as the Olympus of Hindu mythology) and said to form the central point of Jambu-dvipa; all the planets revolve around it and it is compared to the cup or seed-vessel of a lotus, the leaves of which are formed by

Dear Ahmed, Many Christians tell me I have a problem. And I think many Moslems would agree, although for me it's a problem I can live with happily. I am in no way an atheist, but I can't make myself ever believe that God has ever revealed himself to anyone. The Christian world has 24,000 different sects, each one claiming to have the high road. Just recently, when my wife and I were entering a s

Ahmed, there's something else I'd like to add during our conversation, also. I first entered this series of E-Mail conversations because a reader mentioned that she had read my two articles, Who Was Abraham?, and Did the Hindus Help Write Our Bible?, in Viewzone's website. This second article presented to readers two of the Hindu flood stories. Yet, there are others that unmistakably have a "

Ahmed, I understand what you're getting at. However, the similar sounds I find have similar meanings as well. As I've said before, even Aristotle, Clearchus of Soli, Megasthenes, and other Greek savants said that "the Jews were an Indian tribe or sect..." Also, in my investigations, I'm never satisfied if I just find a few cognates sounding alike and having similar meanings. I must have

Dear Ahmed, My Webster's New World Dictionary of the Hebrew Language gives the meaning of "hear" as "leeshmo'a; past = shama'; present = shome'a; future = yeeshma', etc. Some time ago, I read a book by a Hindu who said there were two tribal clans who lived by the Hakra or Gagghar (Hagar) tributaries of the Sarasvati, named Ishak and Ishmahal. I could kick myself for not copying dow

Dear Ahmed, you're right. I was depending on what this compound word would mean in Sanskrit. However, as I do with so many of such words, I referred to a Hebrew dictionary - but couldn't find any justification for the meaning given in the Bible. Sincerely, Gene

Dear Caduceus, I have some books out as well as articles about the close relationship between India and ancient Mexico. For some reason beyond my understanding, the Western World will not give India its due. At the same time, we seem to think that the ancient Mexican Indians invented all their myths about their origins, underworld, and the like. To give you an idea of just how easy it is to tra

Dear Pat, I begged the publisher of my "The Last Atlantis Book You'll Ever Have to Read" not to list me as also a linguist and an archeologist, for I have no degree in those fields. However, I did receive a B.A. degree in Spanish and Mexican history from what was then "Mexico City College" in December 1951. It is now called, "The University of the Americas" and is p

Dear Caduceus, even atheists should get down on their knees and pray to God that they'll never get the Mexican folk disease, "Susto," the experience of being suspended simultaneously in this world and the next. I got it on one Christmas Eve when my wife and I were visiting in her home village of Manalisco, Jalisco. Caduceus, during Christmas Eve mass, the Mexicans place a doll of Jes

Dear Caduceus, since becoming involved in these discussions, I’ve been desperately groping for some way of enlightening those who preach and enforce “political correctism” and skepticism. If this E-Mail doesn’t work, hereafter I’ll just react negatively to “political correctism” with the greatest possible brevity. Here’s the gripe we (I know, including you) “Don Quijotes” of the study of mankind

Dear Lee, Because I'm so interested in different religions and how they began, in the 1970s, I joined a Southern California Japanese Buddhist sect in order to get the "feel" of this religion. One evening, during a discussion about different people, races, and customs, a White member of the group told us, "I am completely non-racist. Whenever I look at a person, I never notice his

Caduceus, I'm with you all the way with what you just said. Speaking for myself, I'm glad to be here and alive - regardless of the fact that I'm a hybrid or anything else. My thinking is much like that of a boy I worked with on the Santa Fe Railroad during World War II. At that time, most of the men were off to war. Therefore we boys in that little Kansas town worked on the railroad. This parti

Dear Jameske, When people tell me that our government is turning into a police state, I answer: "Our government doesn't have to turn into a police state. Our 'politically correct' crowd does the job for them." Isn't it strange that the only ones who knew the truth of ancient history were the long-dead ancients themselves? Nowadays, "good history" is only that history which

Dear Saxabar, I said "physically Caucasian" because I've noticed that although the Dravidians have dark skin, their facial features look exactly like those of Europeans. I first saw Dravidians personally about 20 years when my wife and I were camping out near Washington, DC. Many of the campers were Dravidian. My wife and I noticed that they had no Africanoid features - just Caucasian p

Dear Caduceus. I did as you recommended today and read Messrs. Deepak Bhattacharya and P. C. Naik’s “Nakshetra – A Possible Inspiration for the Mariner’s Compass. I was absolutely amazed by what I read, for my wife and I are right now making plans to spend most of March in Michoacán, Mexico, where I intend study the architecture of the Tarascan Indians. The Tarascan Indians are supposed to have

Dear Christopher, My understanding of a "brute" is just an individual with antisocial tendencies. When I read the ancient works of the Hindus, I personally get the impression that only a minority of people in those remotest times had achieved a high degree of civilization. Therefore, they dealt with their cultural dissidents as best they could, with the knowledge they had at hand. I k

Dear Barry, I did not mean to infer that the original Dravidians were a brutish people. I think such people exist in all races. However, it seems that they were the first to try to improve human beings physically, intellectually, and morally. Actually, we modern humans are trying to do the same thing through cloning. Many people think that they can reproduce themselves through cloning. However,

Dear Caduceus and others I have not yet read the article about "Nakshetra" in the forum, but I'll get to it. If we humans could fully understand that the Hindu caste system made us all what we are today, we could understand why some "ethnicities," though apparently different, share similar DNA. For example, the Arabs, Palestinians, and Jews. Originally, the Arabs were just a

Dear Sunbeam, I’m the Gene D. Matlock you mentioned in your E-Mail to “The Mysteries.” I first got involved in the study of the real origins of our religious traditions in 1980. I started out trying to find out the true locations of places and rivers mentioned in Genesis, as well as the real identities of Abraham and Sara. After a lot of study and research, I found out that these places – and th

It has been my experience that nearly all mysteries eluding us, regarding ancient history, can be solved in the myths and legends of the Hindus. The histories and legends of the Kashmiris are especially reliable. The great Hindu grammarian Panini froze Sanskrit for all time when he wrote his famous grammar, just as was done with Latin and Greek. Therefore, it is also extremely easy for people to

I'd like to contribute some more insight on the article I wrote for Viewzone. Readers wanting to research the possibility of a Hindu origin of our flood myth should know that Satyavarman (a version of our Noah) is also called Satyavrata or Satyavarata. For more confirmation that the biblical story of the deluge possibly originated in India, I refer readers to the following excerpt from an old a
