A Cronology of Hindu History

Re-Writing the narrative from emerging discoveries

Like many people seeking to know the truth of our existence I have questioned the historic narrative handed down to us through various governmental agencies tainted by religious and other belief systems. It comes down to a question of believing what might be true without evidence and seeking to find out what is true based on tangible evidence.

The Western, patriarchal capitalist point of view dominates the world and anyone would have to be pretty stupid to not see that the associated political structures are rotten to the core. They say nice things but do dastardly deeds in the name of power and profits. Conversely in the east and by East I mean east

Revising the Official Hindu History

An urgent need for the well-being of ALL nations

Most people consider that it’s important to know one’s past and to know one’s ancestry because that knowledge provides insights into one’s nature from which we can more clearly determine our reason for being and place in the universe.

Without knowing one’s history, any individual is left in a kind of vacuum, a state of limbo of not knowing. In our recent past the archaeological and historical explorers conjectured that modern humans developed independently in different regions. The Africans in Africa, the Asians in Asia and the Europeans in Europe as independent human species that next giving rise to the variety of peoples in the world today.

This theory was then

India Begat Egypt

Tracing our ancient origins

In the first of the BBC programs on the history of Egypt narrated by Bettany Hughes, the film opens with her describing a large block of what looked like just a big block of sandstone. Bethany describes as rock as an original depiction of a bull created around 5000 BC. This is at the time when the Sahara was beginning to dry out a second time, previously it had dried around 8000 BC so that time (by thousand BC) the Kiffian people may have migrated to the Nile Valley and mixed (or been absorbed into) with the more dominant African culture prevalent through Sudan and Ethiopia.

For me

Meet the Romans

Playboys get themselves an empire

With her ability to read between the lines and sense of realism, Mary Beard makes history interesting. She describes the legend of Romulus and Remus and its relevance to the development Rome, a city and state founded on bloodshed. Perhaps in no other time has human brutality ever been eclipsed yet the model of governance espoused by Augustus rules the world today.

Mary describes Rome as a city that takes what it wants and gives very little in return although in the modern era we tend to think that we got our language from Latin, good roads and an education system. But the Romans had no altruistic ideas, medicine was developed to serve the army

Ancient India

A legacy the world is awakening to

There is an old saying that the truth will set you free yet in today’s modern corporate controlled world, truth has become a commodity determined by someone else for political and economic gain.

While some people invest a great deal of effort into determining the truth of what someone in the modern world may have or may not have said or done, the truth of our past is more important because it shapes who we are today.

It is abundantly clear that we reap as we sow or to express it more crudely, he who lives by the sword generally dies by the sword. The ancient wisdom originating in India advises that to

Myths

Myths and legends confused as history

Myth and legend’s are inspiring stories and some of them may well be factual or based on facts that as yet we cannot prove. Yet they are so often used to shape morality and justify some human behaviours.

These stories are perhaps best seen as a decoration of history and not to be relied on until proven factual, but even here we must remember that the exploration of the history involves a lot of educated guesswork.

The mythical Ankor Wat we now know was built by Hindus, Jason and the Golden fleece story was true, the method of collecting gold is still used today. Some of the old myths are being proved true

One of Our Greatest Mysteries

What is the origin of fair skin?

It is generally thought that before 6000 BC, the human population was universally dark skinned. If the out of Africa theory were true and this has largely been dispensed with in favour of the development of local independent human populations in various regions, we would all have African features including skin colour.

Some argue that the development of fear skin represents a natural process of adaptation to enable the absorption of more vitamin D in temperate and cold climates. The most obvious drawback to this idea is that the peoples of the extreme northern latitudes living in and around the Arctic circle are rather dark skinned. If that adaptation as some sometimes claim,

Michael Cremo and Today

History is to learn from

Michael Cremo, also known by his devotional name Drutakarmā Dāsa, is an American freelance researcher who identifies himself as a Vedic creationist and an alternative archaeologist. He has made some very interesting discoveries from which we can arrive at the possibility that humanity has been around for millions of years and over different periods developed basic metallurgy and similar technologies.

There is a possibility that the Egyptian pyramids were constructed 35,000 or so years ago to produce electricity for global distribution. On the other hand these evidences could represent that alien cultures have resided here and either died out or departed. Certainly some of the unidentifiable metallic objects, giants and other phenomena provide interesting food

Why India was broken and subjugated

Has that old trending pattern changed? Then and Now?

For thousands of years hordes entered into ancient India & Iran from Central Asia to pillage almost every summer peaceful areas and then these same got legitimized when they raised a green flag and called themselves a new religious force.

India, once the largest, richest, and most literate culture and civilization based on principles of universal rules of Dharma – was broken, shattered, subjugated, murdered, plundered and its own remnants now fight among themselves with some disguised as agents of invasive forces and others as blinded by ignorance while both are abused by bigger conspirators to use them as source of income. How foolish one can be?

For past

The Darkening Age

How Christians won the brutal culture war against Rome

Set against what we believe we know, The Darkening Age is the largely unknown story of how a militant religion comprehensively and deliberately extinguished the teachings of the Classical world, ushering in centuries of unquestioning adherence to ‘one true faith’. Despite the long-held notion that the early Christians were meek and mild, going to their martyr’s deaths singing hymns of love and praise, the truth, as Catherine Nixey reveals, is very different. Far from being meek and mild, they were violent, ruthless and fundamentally intolerant.

Comparing early Christians to todays suicide bombers, Catherine describes how Christianity became the historical winner against Roman polytheism, non-specialists often have a distorted impression of how
