I have received a few comments on some of my articles which date some temple, events a long way back.
I have written that,
Thiruvannamalai,Tamil Nadu is 3.94 Billion Years old,
Tirupati 2100 Million Years old,
A Million year old site found in Chennai indicated the presence of Tamil Civilization,
Jwalapuram, Cuddapah,Telengana is 74,000 Yeas old,
Poompuhar , Tamil Nadu, which has been dated 20,000 year back had advanced Tamil Civilization,
Million Year old Kannada Brahmi script has been found in Karnataka,
120 Million year old 3 D Map has been found.
These are some of the articles and I have not listed all the articles which predate our known History or what we have been taught a History.
Below is a comment on one of the articles.
‘I don’t think temples can be dated as 3.94 Billion years orTirupati 2100 million years. These could be ages of rocks where the temples were built! That far back in time man had not come into the picture!

Common refrain of most of the comments are,
1.Human Being did not exist in the time frame mentioned in some of my articles.
2.Many of the artifacts mentioned in my article could not have been in existence(?) because it conflicts with the known Ice Age, Iron Age, Copper Age and Bronze Age.
3.Fact mentioned in my article areMyths and they are not scientifically validated.
I would like to rercord my coments on the dates assigned to them.
a)The dates assigned to Homo Spaiens are arrived at mainly on the basis of. human skeletons,remains,living quarters,rock/cave paintings,fossils available .
These have been dated through Carbon dating in the case of fossils,places and landmarks/rocks.
Carbon dating becomes useless for periods going back greater than 50,0000 yeras.Please read my article on Carbon dating.
2.Infra red dating is used for other evidnece, and in some cases for even the skeletons and land mass.
3.Geology is used to determine the dates for determing the dates of mountains and rocks.
The point is Carbon dating can not determine the dates beyound 5000 years ago.
Infra read and geologiocal dating can determine the total mass available for examination and not the specific part.
That is let us say we have a rock.The rock sample may be dated by this method .
It can not date the indents in the rock , say a Foor print.
Average is arrived about the age of the material, taking into account the various factors in various parts of the sample and the factors foud in various parts neede not be the same.So an average is arrived at.
More over ther atmospheric conditions existing, had existed have to be taken into acoount as also the changes in the atmosphere due to spots, Atomic blasts, which we know had happened.
So if we have a rock sample dated at 500 BC, it is best an educated guess , not a confirmed case beyond doubt.
This is due to inadequacies of the technology involved.
The same drawback is present is the other tools of dating like Infra Red, which have inbulit restrictions on.
Hence the dates we now have are at best gueses based on information not fully correct.
On the other hand how doesw one determine the various ages ?
It is based on the available evidenc validated by these tools mentioned above.
These tools as I have pointed out are not perfect and hence the verified information is not 100 % correct.
‘The Stone Age is contemporaneous with the evolution of the genus Homo, the only exception possibly being at the very beginning, when species prior to Homo may have manufactured tools. According to the age and location of the current evidence, the cradle of the genus is the East African Rift System, especially toward the north in Ethiopia, where it is bordered by grasslands. The closest relative among the other living primates, the genus Pan, represents a branch that continued on in the deep forest, where the primates evolved. The rift served as a conduit for movement into southern Africa and also north down the Nile into North Africa and through the continuation of the rift in the Levant to the vast grasslands of Asia.
Radiocarbon (C14) dating conducted by the University of California Radiation Laboratory on the heavy 9-inch thick timber sides and lid of the chest in which it was discovered arrived at readings that indicated a period around 26,450 BCE.
That would make it over 28,450 years old today, and about 23,300 years older than the legendary Hindu Kurukshetra war.
The idol was also tested by experts who concluded that it was the oldest Hindu idol in existence.’
The Human foot Print in Tirupati is Man_made and is dated around 2100 million years.
Apart from this records of Mu Civilization,Mayan and Aztec Civilizations have SAnatana Dharma/ Tamil connection and these were the ancestors of these civilizations.
Then we have geologiacl proof based on tectonic plates movements that confirm the super continents of Rodina,Pangeaand others.
Interesting fact is that these land masses were described in the Hindu texts in detail.
Not only this..
The flora and fauna described in Hindu texts confirm the details found in the study of these super continents.
Then we have refernces to Lord Rama engaged in war with the Atlantic people.
There were four Empires during the period of Rama.
Details of Lemuria abound in Tamil Classics and the Lemurian Continent dates back to thousands of years and these texts auote the Ramayana.
This means that Ramayana and Mahabharata took place much earlier.
Mahabharata took place in Dwapara Yuga.
The Time Scale of Hindus.
