Text Box: Ramayana & Ancient Times

Man has been on the earth a lot longer than generally accepted. Space images taken by NASA reveal a mysterious ancient bridge in the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka.


The recently discovered bridge is made of a chain of shoals 18 miles long. The bridge's unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man made. Legends as well as archeological studies reveal that the first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to a primitive age, about 1,750,000 years ago and the bridge's age is also almost equivalent.


This information confirms the mysterious legend of the Ramayana, recorded to have taken place in the Treta Yuga (more than 1,700,000 years ago). At that time the inhabitants in the world were much more spiritual than they are today.

 

In this epic, a bridge is discussed which was built between India and Sri Lanka under the supervision of Rama, considered to be an Incarnation of God. Rama went to Sri Lanka to save his wife Sita who had been abducted by Ravanna, a demonic king of the era who terrorized the religious people in India.

 

The reason that God manifest Himself as Rama was to rid the world of Ravanna who was terrorizing religious souls. These religious ones were the ones that prayed to God, beseeching Him to protect them.

Yugas

In early Indian literature, there are periods of history written about that contain multiples of 432,000 years. According to the Vedic system 1,000 Yuga cycles equals One Day of Brahma. The lengths of "time" in the Satya, Treta, Dvapura and Kali yugas are 4, 3, 2, and 1 times an interval of 432,000 years.

 

Within these immense periods of time the human life span decreases from 100,000 years in the Satya-yuga (the Golden Age), to 10,000 years in the Treta-yuga (the Silver Age), 1,000 years in the Dwapura-yuga (the Bronze Age), and finally 100 years in the Kali-yuga (the Iron Age). All these numbers are multiples of 108, the number of beads in Eastern prayer necklaces. Rama lived in the Treta Yuga.


A Yuga cycle consists of four yugas, or 4.32 million years. A thousand yuga cycles equals One Day of Brahma or 4.32 billion years.

 

It is told that in the Satya Yuga everyone had God consciousness. In the Treta Yuga it dropped to 75%; in the Dwapara Yuga it dropped to 50% and in the Kali Yuga (this age) it dropped down to 25%. If this is correct, it is easy to see why this age is fraught with the selfishness that has led to so much strife in the world. Even in this age, this generation has less God consciousness than the previous one. Heaven on earth is very difficult thing to achieve in these times.

More Proof of Ancient Man

In the recent past, miners in South Africa dug up metal spheres that are approximately an inch in diameter. Two types of spheres have been found; one is solid bluish metal with flecks of white and the other is hollowed out containing white spongy material inside. The photograph above is the metal one that has three parallel grooves running around its equator. The rocks they where found in date back 2.8 billion years. The fossilized human handprint shown below was found in limestone that is estimated to be 110 million years old.

Following are excerpts from Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson.

 

In 1979, researchers at the Laetoli, Tanzania, site in East Africa discovered footprints in volcanic ash deposits over 3.6 million years old. Mary Leakey and others said the prints were indistinguishable from those of modern humans. Knowledgeable persons will warn against positing the existence of anatomically modern humans millions of years ago on the slim basis of the Laetoli footprints. But there is further evidence.

 

In 1965, Bryan Patterson and W. W. Howells found a surprisingly modern humerus (upper arm bone) at Kanapoi, Kenya. Scientists judged the humerus to be over 4 million years old. Henry M. McHenry and Robert S. Corruccini of the University of California said the Kanapoi humerus was "barely distinguishable from modern Homo." Similarly, Richard Leakey said the ER 1481 femur (thighbone) from Lake Turkana, Kenya, found in 1972, was indistinguishable from that of modern humans. Scientists normally assign the ER 1481 femur, which is about 2 million years old, to prehuman Homo habilis. But since the ER 1481 femur was found by itself, one cannot rule out the possibility that the rest of the skeleton was also anatomically modern.

 

In 1913, a German scientist, Hans Reck, found at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, a complete anatomically modern human skeleton in strata over 1 million years old, inspiring decades of controversy. More evidence like this has been found throughout the globe, providing scientific proof that man has been on this earth for a very-very long time, further showing that the Darwin Theory of Evolution does not stand up to scientific scrutiny.
