When I was extremely bored at work one day(don't even ask me why!), I was going through an article in Wiki on Hindu Cosmology and I came across this:
- Satya Yuga (Krita Yuga):- 1,728,000 Human years
- Treta Yuga:- 1,296,000 Human years
- Dwapara Yuga:- 864,000 Human years
- Kali Yuga:- 432,000 Human years (5,111 years have passed; 426,889 years remain). Kaliyuga started in 3102 B.C.; CE 2009 corresponds to Kaliyuga year 5,111
If this is the case, then we SHOULDN'T be knowing about The Ramayan which happened in the Treta Yuga, or for that matter, even the Krishnavatar, which happened in Dwapara Yuga. Because according to Hindu cosmology, the world in which Rama walked and lived(?!) is not the world that we live in, right now. It was destroyed. It was a different yuga. Then, how do you explain the authenticity of the Ramayan?
(For all the people who are going to abuse me, because I'm contradicting God... well... muahahhaha. You are welcome to do so.)
