Ramayana bridge

Posted on 10/21/2002 12:58:08 PM PDT by bala

ANCIENT RAMAYANA BRIDGE - A REALISTIC POSSIBILITY


TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: adamsbridge; bridge; fossil; godsgravesglyphs; hanuman; images; india; monkeymasons; moose; nasa; possibility; primordialmoose; ramayana; ramsethu; ramsetu; speculations; srilanka
Before going on for a scientific speculation about the feasibility of the bridge, it must be noted that the current system of fossil tracing is inefficient in the fact that the dynamics of plate movements are not known precisely beyond a time domain (in order to trace the history). There is a huge shift in the interior layers of earth every time a pressure shoot in the core occurs and magma rises up to the crust. For instance if a civilization is destroyed by a natural calamity say about 100000 years back, the possibility of tracing it at the same geographical area is very difficult because of the layer shifts and stronger magma currents. Moreover archeologists don’t have a precise methodology for large area transient geographical fossil tracking. The archeologists claim only to the discovered ones within a few hundred meters depth. So just by finding few skeletons and predicting the possible age and characterizing the finding and finally generalizing it is not the right way. What happens to be the biggest loop-hole in the current system of prediction about the origin of the modern man is the non availability of complete information of fossil scatter area and crust changes. Just like the mismatch in the prediction and formation of tornadoes and hurricanes, which are chaotic, fossil studies are also in the same category. A careful rational analysis could say that just like the " Mans trip to moon " issue, which raised a lot of questions about the flag waving during implanting and the absence of a blast crater, one must also realize that we should not get carried away by localized fossil tracking. This is regarding the fossil-based theories of origins of man and its inefficiency. Now regarding the Ramayana bridge issue, there should be a detailed investigation on the bridge using shoal layer testing methods essentially with the help of NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF OCEANOGRAPHY OR ARCHEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF INDIA. It will be better if fossil trace based speculations cease and an open-minded search be carried out. This will reveal further details for a possible evidence.

Does this have something to do with the introduction of Neolithic Indo-Euorpean cheeses to the Indian Sub-continent?

It has nothing to do with that (Probably I didn't post it properly or you didn't read the article completely). I'm saying that the current localized fossil tracking methods are not efficient enough to predict the existence of an ancient civilization. Even if the bridge is 17.5 lakhs years old, there is no way by which it could be denied as was done by some scrap astrophysist (Published in Times of India). He was trying to speculate on the issue based on archeological findings linked with fossil studies saying that there was no human civilization 17 lakhs years back. Firstly, I'm suggesting that fossil theories cannot explain a possible human civilization more than 17 lakh years back which means modern man could have very well existed even at this period. Secondly, to know the exact details about the age of the bridge, a careful study of the shoal layers and coral reefs should be done with the help of government organizations.

I think it has something to do with the introduction of Neolithic Indo-Euorpean moose to the Indian Sub-continent.

If a demigod were to have actually come to earth,

why would he have monkeys and tigers break up rocks to

build a bridge to cross the straights. If he were able

to come down in the first place, why didn't he come down

on the other side in the first place....huuuuh?

The hari krishnas are just pissed because of airport security.

If you're refering to the "Sea Cheese", that's been shown to be a myth. It originated with a pair of drunken Burmese crab fishermen in 1932.

But seriously, what I'm saying, in a cheesy way, is that your post is more than a little cryptic. (Kinda like using white on white lettering.) I had to do some searching just to find out what the "Ramayana Bridge" is. Your post assumes that all readers know what you're talking about. A little background, or a link, would have helped. On a side note, the most useful hits from Google on the subject were to pages on FreeRepublic.com.

Have you ever tried getting a monkey through airport security? You'd have an easier time trying to sneak a wheel of Venezualan Beaver Cheese through customs!

Most likely it deals with the migration of prehistoric moose...

I concur. I would hasten to add that subductive processes in relation to clastic deposits of coagulated dairy protiens are often the mechanism behind such stratified formations as 'Port Wine Cheesespread, and other lesser known holiday food phenomena.

Dunno 'bout that, but I was wondering, what is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow??

Space images taken by NASA reveal a mysterious ancient bridge in the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka. The recently discovered bridge currently named as Adam´s Bridge is made of chain of shoals, c.18 mi (30 km) long.

The bridge´s unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man made. The legends as well as Archeological studies reveal that the first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the a primitive age, about 17,50,000 years ago and the bridge´s age is also almost equivalent.

This information is a crucial aspect for an insight into the mysterious legend called Ramayana, which was supposed to have taken place in tredha yuga (more than 17,00,000 years ago).

In this epic, there is a mentioning about a bridge, which was built between Rameshwaram (India) and Srilankan coast under the supervision of a dynamic and invincible figure called Rama who is supposed to be the incarnation of the supreme.

This information may not be of much importance to the archeologists who are interested in exploring the origins of man, but it is sure to open the spiritual gates of the people of the world to have come to know an ancient history linked to the Indian mythology.

Oh, sorry, arguments? that's two threads over.

Oh... Is that what this is about? That's not a man-made object. It's a formation left by the extinct species Alces Aquatica. A. Aquatica would engage in short migrations from one coastal feeding area to another. To mark their path, they would leave a trail of small stones behind them to follow back at the end of the season. Over the years, the A. Aquatica trails could get quite high and the animals were no longer rquired to swim the entire distance.

Alces Aquatica should not be confused with its pelagic cousin, Alces Ceti.

Three is the number of the count, and the number of the count is three. Thou shalt not counteth to four, neither shalt thou counteth to two, unless thou proceedeth to counteth to three.

Five is right out.

Wherever the hard working New World Camelid makes it's mark, the small eyed, bifid lipped pseudo-paleontologists of the Moose mafia soon decend like the pack of Buteo they truly are.

"Back!", I say, and let the accreted droppings marking centuries, nay, aeons of the glorious beaked-vicuna's quest for Sri Lanka's tangy puna be seen for what it truly is! A submerged llavatory of the Gods!

Why, to this day, Tamil Tigers scavenging ex-Army blankets in the Palk straights (with grappling irons) still fear the cry: "Look out, there are llamas!"

Oh! Give me a break! Do you expect us to believe that pile of camel dung?!? Everyone and his uncle knows that the Beaked Vicuna was a denizen of riparian environments, not coastal environments. The Beaked Vicuna and Alces Aquatica never crossed paths.

And as for the Tamil Tigers, their greatest fear is of the Sea Cheese, which, as I mentioned previously, is a myth.

Of course they never crossed paths - Alces is derived from the Indo-European word for "Also", as in, "when you see the intrepid Llama (Blessed be thy name!), you will soon also see the lowly Moose", bereft as it is of any higher instinct save to follow it's better around the globe (and ruin the neighborhood - it cannot be denied).

I ask you:

Does the base tail ever cross paths with the seat of intellect, the head?
Of course not.

Has Sri Lanka, centuries after the property depreciating Moose was finally driven off, regained it's former desirability from the heydey of the visiting Llama?
Of course not.

Simple logic confounds your position (Llama be praised!). Thank goodness the Andean gentrification project's long term viability was protected from your ever encroaching sub-ruminant (the dark shame of the family Cervidae) by the shark infested waters of the Panama moat - and since the vache trebouchets no longer have to drive off mossy-antlered interlopers, the bounty of the Pampas drives the economic heart of South America - truly a shining example of what freedom from the threat of the Moose can bring.

What more is there to say of a lowly beast that lacks the refinement of even a distinct plural form?
