The other point is that if Matsya is the beginning of Evcolution, then nothing else should have existed along with it.
But we have Manu, a Human being existing when Matsya Avatar took place and it was the Matsya that advised Manu to meditate.
Therefore the interpretaion of Dashavatara in terms of Darwinism is incorrect as Darwinism is not proved and interpretaion of Hindu theory of evolution as found in the Puranas is incorrect.
There are ten accepted Avatars of Lord Vishnu in the Four Yugas.
The Avatars under each Yuga.
Kalki, Yet to manifest.
There is an explanation of these Avatars in therms of Charles Darwain’s Theory of Evolution.
fish, the first class of vertebrates; evolved in water(Indicates origin of Fishes in Silurian Period,
Kurma – amphibious (living in both water and land; but not to confuse with the vertebrate class amphibians)(Indicates origin of Amphibians in Devonian Period,
Varaha,mammals, wild land animals (Indicates Mammals origin in Triassic Period.
Narusimha,beings that are half-animal and half-human (indicative of emergence of human thoughts and intelligence in powerful wild nature)…
1.All known Species have not been verified and this is technically incorrect.This is not the mistake of Darwin alone.
It is the failing of Science as well, taking a ‘inductive Leap’
2.If nature is attempting to perfect,considering the age of nature,nature seems to be inefficient as we are yet to see a perfect Species.
3.If we extend the Logic, what happens once the ‘perfection is reached?
4.Yes, Christianity is incorrect for th reasons specified in the article.
5.Indian Philosophy has a different approach.Perfection has different grades/levels.Once a level is reached another Species evolves.
6.As to the issue of nature being teleological,Perfection need not be Ideal-it is our conception.
Inspired by the book by Richard Dawkins, I took his reading from a passage of his book as the basis for this experimental short film. During the formation of the theory of ‘evolution’, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace had noticed that the supposed perfection of nature as represented by the Christian ideal was in fact inaccurate. Species of animals and plants had not been created to fulfil a specific role, they did not live in harmony as if in an idealistic garden. Instead, all life was locked in a furious battle to complete for limited resources in harsh environments, and this competition gave opportunity for mutation to form adaptation and change. Richard’s book helps explain just how far the science and specifically our understanding of evolutionary biology has come in the 153 years since the publication of Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’. For this film, I shot footage from an idealistic garden with the words highlighting the deeper nature of the biology.
