I don't understand what your answer has to do with my question. Were you addressing someone else? Glad to see you too! Deep

If they were indeed "poured", there will probably be traces of organic matter from the period in the mixture. I wonder if any has been found, and if so, carbon-dated? That step would definitively answer the question of the age of the pyramids. Deep

How is Dwarka in the danger of burial? What is your source? Dwarka was the fabled city of Krishna - it would be highly surprising if the Indian authorities allowed it to be "buried" in some way. The last I heard, they were planning to turn in into a museum of some kind where visitors could walk undersea through an airtight acrylic tunnel to view the undersea ruins. Deep

Are we talking about the same Washington Monument? The monument I'm familiar with is a 169 metres tall, and its construction was well-documented. Even today, I cannot imagine we can transport something of that magnitude. Or is this a different monument we are referring to? Deep

You might find this interesting from Hindu mythology: Kurma was the giant tortoise that saved the world. The Churning of the Ocean was a story to explain Precession, when the Earth is "churned" like a Miller's wheel (Graham referred to it in Fingerprints.) Anyway, here's the story: Enjoy... Deep

Herodotus was born in the City of Halicarnassus, a Greek City of Asia Minor (now Bodrum in western Turkey) , on the very edge of the Persian Empire in his time. Halicarnassus was conquered by Alexander about 850 years before the birth of Herodotus, after a hard battle, then levelled to the ground (except for the Mausoleum). Then, Alexander moved on. All the translations of Herodotus that I have

The Vedas contain multiple references to hallucinogenic substances, the primary one mentioned in the Rig Veda being Soma, or "ambrosia of the Gods" - which was clearly a hallucinogenic drink. The problem is, no one knows for sure what it really was... "Soma (Sanskrit), or Haoma (Avestan), from Proto-Indo-Iranian Hauma-, was a ritual drink of importance among the early Indo-Iranian

My thoughts are open to the possibility of either of the options you mention - and are irrelevant. I am only curious to find the truth. My intention was to point you to the source that Shroud was trying to find, and nothing else. I remembered having read the same source, but do not endorse or subscribe to it. Deep

I think Shroud is referring to the work of David Hatcher Childress: "Atlanteans used their flying machines, 'Vailixi'. a similar type of aircraft, to literally try and subjugate the world, it would seem, if Indian texts are to be believed. The Atlanteans, known as "Asvins" in the Indian writings, were apparently even more advanced technologically than the Indians, and certainly

Thanks for the article Vanya - very, very interesting. How would you folks explain this part of the experiments - I cannot think of any rational theory to fit this evidence...?

More evidence, and scientific, to boot... "It is well known that in the Rig Veda, the greatest and the holiest of rivers was not the Ganga, but the now dry Saraswati. The Ganga is mentioned only once while the Saraswati is mentioned some 50 times. There is a whole hymn devoted to her. Extensive research by the late Dr. Wakankar has shown that the Saraswati changed her course sev

Yes, the Rig was the earliest, and the rest follow. Here is a link you might find interesting.. "Indus Valley culture as in the Indus era it was already in decline. Vedic and late Vedic texts also contain interesting astronomical lore. The Vedic calender was based upon astronomical sightings of the equinoxes and solstices. Such texts as 'Vedanga Jyotish' speak of a time when

Hi Deb, Hopefully this will help: There were 4 Vedas: Rig, Yajur, Sama, and Atharva. It is a common misconception that they were divergent streams, but they were sequential in the order presented. This is evident from the fact that each Veda refers to content from the previous one - each one "built" on the material presented before. In addition (and separate from the 4 main Vedas)

Hey Marduk, I think Deb's question was hypothetical - meaning that if Abraham were in India, which caste would he belong to (Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya or Shudra) - given his place in society, occupation and his deeds. Deep

It is really funny that you mention that - Max Mueller, being a biblical scholar and believing in the 4004 BC date for the creation of the world and the flood around 2500 BC, found it difficult to assign a date earlier than 1500 BC to his Aryan Invasion Theory. What goes around... Deep :-)

Deb, It is difficult to begin answering the question without at least getting a plausible date for the Rig Veda. Max Mueller arbitrarily assigned a date of around 1500 BCE, which has now been disproven. Contemporary Indologists now date the Rig Veda to at least 4000 BCE. The link below sheds some light on this topic: Regarding the fact that reading the Vedas literally is discouraged, this i

While you have studied this longer than I have, please indulge my curiousity. How does the Sunda Strait not match Plato's description around 9500 BCE? With the majority of the shelf above sea-level and Krakatoa a towering monster, it is quite clear that the land mass would be greater than Libya and Asia Minor combined, with both elephants and coconuts. As witnessed by the last explosion of Kr

Have you considered the possibility that it really wasn't India, but south-east of India? The Sunda Strait, that was above sea level in the last ice-age? Glenn-Milnes' maps prove this - I can provide the links if you need them... Deep :-)
