I submit to your argument without any evidence that India was the highest civilization in the world. The technology for making rockets and nuclear arms and computers were known to the Brahmins who wrote the Rigveda which according to scholars was written from 3500 BCE onwards. 1700 years pass and then we see Dasarath going hunting in a horse-drawn chariot. Does not that strike you as strange that the king in a society that had acquired sophisticated technology in 3000 BCE was using primitive technology on 1700 BCE? Of course I know that no amount of evidence is going to convince you of anything.
After Dasarath comes Ram and he has to prove his mettle by using the bow in order to marry Sita. This again is primitive technology. Even a policeman now has better techlogy now.
300-400 years pass after Ram and we are on the grounds of Kurukshetra and here too the biggest philosopher scientist India has known is sitting in another horse-drawn chariot and advising Arjuna. He then takes on the Viswaroop of frightening proportions. But not even the ordinary soldiers on the Kaurava side are intimidated and the war goes on as if Viswaroop did not matter. Where was this sophisticated technology of yours even 2000 years after it had been made available to your ancestors?
Krishna had the Sudarsana Chakra which according to the Puranas, was used for the ultimate destruction of an enemy. Where was this chakra when wave after wave of enemies attacked India?
Hindutvadis boast that they had sophisticated battle strategies such as the Padmavyooha from which there was no escape. Where was this when the Chines attacked India in 1962?
I am fed up with arguing with you whose minds are so warped that no amount of reasoning will get to you. Your description of Lucas talking with Jesus is the biggest joke I have heard. Lukose was a writer who had not even met Jesus and you fabricate tales in typical fashion of Hindutvadis. You boast and boast about the Vedas being technologically sophisticated. Can you please cite a single verse which expounds any technology worth the name except for chariots and bows and arrows? They did not even know to spin clothes on a mass scale and so Ram and Krishn had no shirts on and most if not all women went topless like their menYou guys are hypnotised and will never get out of your reverie.
Kaul boasts that rapes and destruction was unknown in ancient India. Here are some snippets from ancient India which will set the record straight
Brhadārankyaka Upanishad scripture(advocating rape):Surely, a woman who has changed her clothes at the end of her menstrual period is the most auspicious of women. When she has changed her clothes at the end of her menstrual period, therefore, one should approach that splendid woman and invite her to have sex. Should she refuse to consent, he should bribe her. If she still refuses, he should beat her with a stick or with his fists and overpower her, saying: “I take away the splendor from you with my virility and splendor (6.4.9,21).
In Dharmasastra, which is a Hindu moral and legal text(all women are whores):Good looks do not matter to them, nor do they care about youth; 'A man!' they say, and enjoy sex with him, whether he is good-looking or ugly. By running after men like whores, by their fickle minds, and by their naturallack of affection these women are unfaithful to their husbands even when they are zealously guarded here. Knowing that their very own nature is like this, as it was born at the creation by the Lord of Creatures (Prajapati), a man should make the utmost effort to guard them. The bed and the seat, jewellery, lust, anger, crookedness, a malicious nature, and bad conduct are what Manu assigned to women. There is no ritual with Vedic verses for women; this is a firmly established point of law. For women, who have no virile strength, and no Vedic verses, are falsehood; this is well established. Manusmrti 9:14-18.
In the Vedas:"Lord Indra himself has said, 'The mind of woman cannot be disciplined; she has very little intelligence.' -- Rig Veda 8:33:17.
In the Purunas(Hindu Gods Rape Gautama's wife)Formerly the gods lusted for Gautama's wife and raped her, for their wits were destroyed by lust. Then they were terrified and went to the sage Durvasas [an incarnation of Siva], who said, 'I will remove all your defilements with the Satarudriya Mantra [an ancient Saiva prayer].' Then he gave them ashes which they smeared upon their bodies, and their sins were shaken off. -- Padma Purana 4:101:174-9.
In the Smriti(method of turning women back to virgins):"A woman who has been unchaste should worship Siva in his calm aspect, Siva who is Kama. Then she should summon a Brahmin and give herself to him, thinking, 'This is Kama who has come for the sake of sexual pleasure.' Andwhatever the Brahmin wishes, the sensuous woman should do. For thirteen months she should honour in this way any Brahmin who comes to the house for the sake of sexual pleasures, and there is no immorality in this for noble ladies or prostitutes." -- Matsya Purana 70:40-60; cf. Mahabharata III:2:23.
