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.
Kailash Iraq Romania interconnected tunnels
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.
Starting from about 4 million years ago (mya) a single biome established itself from South Africa through the rift, North Africa, and across Asia to modern China, which has been called “transcontinental ‘savannahstan'” recently. Starting in the grasslands of the rift, Homo erectus, the predecessor of modern humans, found an ecological niche as a tool-maker and developed a dependence on it, becoming a “tool equipped savanna dweller.”‘
Stone age is first accepted r e corded History of Mankind and Homo Erectus is supposed to have evolved then.
During 2010, fossilised animal bones bearing marks from stone tools were found in the Lower Awash Valley in Ethiopia. Discovered by an international team led by Shannon McPherron, at 3.4 million years old they are the oldest indirect evidence of stone tool use ever found anywhere in the world. Archaeological discoveries in Kenya in 2015, identifying possibly the oldest known evidence of hominin use of tools to date, have indicated that Kenyanthropus platyops ( a 3.2 to 3.5-million-year-old Pliocene hominin fossil discovered in Lake Turkana, Kenya in 1999 ) may have been the earliest tool-users known.
The oldest known stone tools have been excavated from the site of Lomekwi 3 in West Turkana, northwestern Kenya, and date to 3.3 million years old. Prior to the discovery of these “Lomekwian” tools, the oldest known stone tools had been found at several sites at Gona, Ethiopia, on the sediments of the paleo-Awash River, which serve to date them. All the tools come from the Busidama Formation, which lies above a disconformity, or missing layer, which would have been from 2.9 to 2.7 mya. The oldest sites containing tools are dated to 2.6–2.55 mya. One of the most striking circumstances about these sites is that they are from the Late Pliocene, where previous to their discovery tools were thought to have evolved only in the Pleistocene. Rogers and Semaw, excavators at the locality, point out that:‘
However it was during the Copper and Bronze Ages that Implements were developed and this is accepted.
Bronze and Copper Age.
The Bronze Age is a period characterized by the use of bronze, proto-writing, and other early features of urban civilization. The Bronze Age is the second principal period of the three-age Stone-Bronze-Iron system, as proposed in modern times by Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, for classifying and studying ancient societies.
An ancient civilization is defined to be in the Bronze Age either by smelting its own copper and alloying with tin, arsenic, or other metals, or by trading for bronze from production areas elsewhere. Copper-tin ores are rare, as reflected in the fact that there were no tin bronzes in Western Asia before trading in bronze began in the third millennium BC. Worldwide, the Bronze Age generally followed the Neolithic period, with the Chalcolithic serving as a transition. Although the Iron Age generally followed the Bronze Age, in some areas (such as Sub-Saharan Africa), the Iron Age intruded directly on the Neolithic from outside the region.
Bronze Age cultures differed in their development of the first writing. According to archaeological evidence, cultures in Mesopotamia (cuneiform) and Egypt (hieroglyphs) developed the earliest viable writing systems.’
It maybe noted that Vecic period,Mesopotamia,,Anatolia,Caucasus,Egyptian civilizations Have been taken into account.
The assigned date on these studies for the Vedas is around 1800 BC!
This despite the fact that Lord Rama’s date has been proved at 5114 BC.
And consider these facts.
Thiruvannamalai,TamilNadu,India has been dated at around 3.94 billion years.
Tirupati is dated around 2100 million years.
JWALAPURAM,Cuaddapah ,India is dated 74,000years ago.
Kalpa Vigraha of Vishnu.
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.
The Viṣṇu Purāṇa Time measurement section of the Viṣṇu Purāṇa Book I Chapter III explains the above as follows:
- 2 Ayanas (6-month periods, see above) = 1 human year or 1 day of the devas
- 4,000 + 400 + 400 = 4,800 divine years (= 1,728,000 human years) = 1 Satya Yuga
- 3,000 + 300 + 300 = 3,600 divine years (= 1,296,000 human years) = 1 Tretā Yuga
- 2,000 + 200 + 200 = 2,400 divine years (= 864,000 human years) = 1 Dvāpara Yuga
- 1,000 + 100 + 100 = 1,200 divine years (= 432,000 human years) = 1 Kali Yuga
- 12,000 divine year = 4 Yugas (= 4,320,000 human years) = 1 Mahā-Yuga (also is equaled to 12000 Daiva (divine) Yuga)
- [2*12,000 = 24,000 divine year = 12000 revolutions of sun around its dual]
- 1000 Mahā-Yugas = 1 Kalpa = 1 day (day only) of Brahma
(2 Kalpas constitute a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion human years)
- 30 days of Brahma = 1 month of Brahma (259.2 billion human years)
- 12 months of Brahma = 1 year of Brahma (3.1104 trillion human years)
- 50 years of Brahma = 1 Parārdha
- 2 parardhas = 100 years of Brahma = 1 Para = 1 Mahā-Kalpa (the lifespan of Brahma) (311.04 trillion human years)
One day of Brahma is divided into 1000 parts called charaṇas.’
More and more archelogical evidence is piling up to prove Humans existed much earlier than the Stone Age.
We have Pere Reis Map which turns our known history because it is dated 120 million years.
Please read my article on Daksha’s 3 D Map of the world.
Considering all these facts mentioned in Hindu Texts being validated by Science,it is surprising that Hindu texts are called Myths and theacademicians refuse to consider to revise the date of Indian History.
