The core foundation of Hindu belief is that Vedas contain source of all knowledge — physical or metaphysical. However in last odd years, this belief has come under scrutiny due to the advances that modern science claims to make. However in modern era of religious marketing, another group has come up which would go to any length to discover scientific errors in Vedas. This is the group which would want million Hindus to lose faith in Vedas and their religion and embrace what they believe is the final message of God. Yes I am referring to Islamic and Christian evangelists. While both these groups of evangelists are propelled by vision of making everyone in world a follower of their respective Holy Books, the situation is even more desperate for Quran zealots. This is because a bulk of Islamic evangelists believe that Jesus will come again towards end of the world after which they would reach Paradise forever.

Origin and Dating of the ancient Vedas
The Age of Vedas The sacred books of Buddhism, Christianity and Islam have definite historical dates assigned to them. The Tripitakas are said to have been written about the time of Asoka , though the Buddha’s date , according to some puranas, went further back by several centuries. The Koran, which is the word of God conveyed to the Prophet, is about 1, years old.
The New Testament of the Bible is about 2,00 years old.

A vast number of statements and materials presented in the ancient Vedic literatures can be shown to agree with modern scientific findings and they also reveal a highly developed scientific content in these literatures. The great cultural wealth of this knowledge is highly relevant in the modern world. Techniques used to show this agreement include: – Marine Archaeology of underwater sites such as Dvaraka – Satellite imagery of the Indus-Sarasvata River system – Carbon and Thermoluminiscence Dating of archaeological artifacts – Scientific Verification of Scriptural statements – Linguistic analysis of scripts found on archaeological artifacts – A Study of cultural continuity in all these categories.
And also, it is an offence to force anyone to study Krishna, because Krishna can only be controlled and studied by love. This knowledge is complete and ome must realise it ; oneself as the individual fallen soul and Krishna as the supreme or universal complete soul. Hare Krishna Thank You. Yunya is absolutely right because God or Krishna has spoken all these words and of course the one who creates the universe will say everything right, just because he has created it!
Stop looking for scientific discoveries in holy books, be it the Vedas or the Quran
Jump to navigation. Why that date has been fixed upon we shall have to consider hereafter but it is well to say at once that we must not expect the same kind of historical evidence for a date reaching back to B. There are different degrees of certainty and it is the neglect of this inevitable fact which causes so much needless controversy between specialists and outsiders. The date assigned to the poetry of the Veda is and will always remain hypothetical. To critical scholars it would I believe be a real relief if a later date could be assigned to some portions of that sacred collection.
But we can hardly hope for new evidence to enable us to fix Vedic dates.
The Veda Vidnyana Mandala, Pune, The Scientific Dating of The Mahabharata War FOREWORD Dr. Padmakar Vishnu Vartak m.b.b.s. F.u.w.A.i.,ph.D.(Lit.).
Jump to navigation. This is a fictional piece for a section in India Today magazine, which had fictional articles written, datelined in the future, on various topics. Their task was made simple by the discovery of an Indian equivalent of the Rosetta Stone. For those who don’t know, the Rosetta Stone, an ancient Pharaonic-Egypt decree discovered in the 18th century, helped decipher the ancient Egyptian script.
The Indian equivalent of the Rosetta Stone, called the Naga Stone by the trio who discovered it, has a message from a king who lived many millennia ago, inscribed in three different scripts. One of these is the ancient Brahmi script, which as we all know, has been deciphered already. It has the same message in three different scripts, one of which is Brahmi, which we can read. Since the message is the same across the other scripts, it was a simple job of matching words to decipher the other scripts.
Interestingly, all three scripts including Brahmi can be identified as Indus Valley scripts since they contain symbols commonly found in Indus Valley seals.

Hello Sir. What are your views on Uttar Kuru and Uttar Madra? The princes of the Aila dynasty which is also the dynasty of Kurus have been called Karddameya. Further, in Raghuvamsa, there is a conquest described by Indian king Raghu to Transaxonia I have only read the Wiki article on that. This too seems to be conflicting. Can you shed light on this please? I also wanted to add, that some others have identified Uttar Kuru as “Hyperborea” lit.
They argue that this was the common region from where all Aryan tribes descended. Regarding Astronomical dating of Rg Veda, Mr. Subhash Kak has done some phenomenal work.
