Thank you, always wonderful to see Bhagavad Gita slokas on FR. Annie laurie, my time is so tight lately - but this article is interesting, maybe I can work up some semi-cogent reply tomorrow. Have you ever read “Forbidden Archeology” by Michael Cremo? Much archeological evidence exists that points to humans having existed on earth millions of years ago, but scientists do not like this evidence since it does not conform to the evolutionary time lines. Many Christians do not like it either, as it does not go along with a “young earth” theory. I will see what I can find about the astronomical configuration mentioned in the Vedas or Puranas.
James, thank you for sharing the verses.
LJ, I understand (all too well) about time being tight. So, please don’t stress yourself in any way regarding a longer reply on the article ... I only pinged you because I thought it might be of interest to you. I had (and have) no expectations of anything beyond that. The ping was just a gesture of ‘FR’iendship, so no worries at all if you don’t have the time to reply in depth.
Also, please don’t worry about going to a lot of effort to find the astronomical info that we discussed. I only meant that if you ever happened across it again during your reading, myself and others on FR would surely enjoy reading about it. So, please don’t stress about this, either! :)
Since I can’t wish you Merry Christmas (or can I?), I’ll wish you a Happy New Year :) By the way, thank you for all the work that you do on the Moral Absolutes list, and can you add me to it, please? :)
