1.      Indian Historians: Notorious or Ignorant

 

More than a hundred years ago, when History of India was written under British influence, there was no room for Ramayan and Mahabharat as historical events. They were epics and of no importance for students. It is surprising that India is one country whose history has been written by its enemies and the whole nation yet follows it. No doubt the history was a strategic attack on Indian civilization and culture that paved way for western culture into the nation. With time, truth is evolving back. Science of India that was denied is now accepted through western influence. The myths are suddenly appearing to be history. And one such history is Ram Sethu. Since, it is a history of Hindus, politics and literates are not ready to accept it as truth.

If they are so intelligent, let them go through this article. I challenge them through few questions mentioned in bold in this article.

 

Let us have a background of what politicians and historians (British written history literates) say about Ram Sethu.

 

Historian B.D. Chattopadhyay of Jawaharlal Nehru University says the archaeological record says nothing of the sort. There is no evidence of a human presence in the subcontinent, he says, before roughly 250,000 to 300,000 years ago. It is generally believed man’s hominid ancestors did not leave their African home until about two million years ago.

 

Very important point here is that Mr. Chattopadhyay has forgot to note that what is said of hominid ancestors is also a belief – a belief generated by Western people and followed by Mr. Chattopadhyay – not Truth, not Science. Surely Ramayan, if a belief is a belief of eastern people – Indian People. Mr. Chattopadhyay is trying to introduce a belief clash.

Why Mr. Chattopadhyay wants to defy a true instance with a false belief? Does Mr. Chattopadhyay want to say that Lord Rama is deep in the heart of billions of Indians to this date without any truth? Can false beliefs find so deep root in society and for so long time?

I read a similar comment from N Ramanujam. Head, Post Graduate Department of Geology and Research Centre, V.O. Chidambaram College, Tuticorin.

He said that Adam’s Bridge is only a chain of shoals between the Palk Strait and the Gulf of Mannar, created by sedimentation owing to long shore currents.

Explaining the bridge’s geological history, he said both the Palk Strait and the GoM were once part of the Cauvery basin, which was formed during the separation of India and Antarctica about 70 million years ago during the `Gondwana period.’

They were combined till a ridge was formed in the region owing to thinning of earth’s crust. The development of this ridge augmented the coral growth in the region.

“The coral cover acted as a `sand trapper’ leading to the formation of Rameswaram Island,” Dr. Ramanujam said.

The long shore currents on the southern side of island created a discontinuous shoreline eastward from Dhanuskodi to Talaimannar, which’s the Adam’s Bridge.

Let us see what Mr. Ramanujam has said:

How many such Chain of Shoals bridging two nations is known to Dr. Ramanujam? Is there any other Geographical construct anywhere in the world – deposits of shoals along the coast doesn’t say that it bridges two land pieces?

Again Mr. Ramanujam is taking support of another belief to beat the truth. He is talking of Gondwana theory, a theory that has no concrete proof – an imaginary thesis with some scientific logic behind it. Hundreds of such theory can be generated based on Geographical principles, but that do not defy a concrete reason of existence.

Why did Gondwana theory leave a trace of only One Bridge on the Globe?

Very important – Ramanujam is unable to change the names of two places as Dhanuskodi and Talaimannar which are not English names as they already exist, and hence successfully accepts a controversial English name of Adam’s Bridge instead of Ram Setu. Mr. Ramanujam could very easily put his theory with the name of the Bridge still as Ram Setu. But he ends up in saying that is Adam’s Bridge – WHY?

Why did Mr. Ramanujam accept Adam’s theory to be correct? Does Mr. Ramanujam want to support that Adam and Eve existed and Lord Rama didn’t exist?

If yes, then Adam and Eve existed in India alone as the bridge is in India – Again controversy – as Manu Shatrupa would be more known names in this region and analogy to Adam and Eve. Moreover, acceptance of Adam’s Bridge is acceptance that it was build by Adam. Actually, the logic fits opposite to them – how can the first man on earth build a bridge of that volume? He would be immature at first place, he is alone at second place and why will he ever endeavor to bridge the sea? Though the only evidence is with India, no logic fits to the name as ‘Adam’s Bridge’. This clearly reflects the Christian mentality trying to impose and kill Hindu greatness. And poor Historians of India, brought up in the education system of English, unable to break the boundary of false arrogance of being high literary, seems to be helplessly saying that Ram Setu Bandh is not historical. They cannot even hold a petty vision that humans have build wall of length of Great wall of China that is visible from even Satellite; what would stop humans to build Ram Setu Bandh and what is surprising or opposing to the fact that it was built as a part of Ramayan as a history.

Does Mr. Ramanujam want to say that if Adam built it, it is history, but if Lord Rama built it it is a Myth and a natural construct?

Professor Dupey says that as per Archeological survey, remains from Ayodhya controversial site has found temple remains whose age do not go beyond 600 B.C.

Mr. Dubey: Do you want to say that if I build a temple today, you will conclude that Lord Rama existed since today and not before?

Temples are build and rebuild and their age can only say about the age of the temple and the age of the personality whose worship is done in the temple.

We need to understand certain points here, modern Archeology and Science is far different than what used to exist in ancient India. For instance, old temples of India, yet existing, were built on a different technology than what we find in modern civil engineering. This doesn’t mean that ancient archeology was not having mathematics maturity – in fact, if we look at Temples of India, Jagannath Puri temple for instance, we do not find any iron or pillars used to build the temple – yet it stands from hundreds of years to a height of around 200 ft.

Assume that Puri temple would have been razed some 10000 years ago, what technology or archeological proofs would be derived to conclude that the temple was 200 ft high?

Similarly, the Ram Setu bandh has seen ages, and that too not on land, but in sea – a turbulent sea. The major of the mass is already washed off – a question to be pondered is that what remains is just a trace of the actual bridge – not the whole bridge as it was.

Ramayan mentions that the bridge was built over the sea water, with support of Sea – this implies that there was no supporting archeology involved in constructing the bridge – this is easily supported by the failure of Archeology ground to trace such constructs under ground. Yet the presence of shoals below the bridge and their type indicate that they cannot be found in sea in the manner it exists at Ram Sethu.

Now, Mr. Dubey accepts that the age of Shoals found at Ram Sethu goes around 1 million years. He misguides people, as he is a literate of History written by British, that Ramayan was first written around 10000 years ago and not 1 million years ago. Mr. Dubey, here is a simple calculation for you to further investigate:

The age of the bridge as per scientific dating comes to around 1 million years. As per Hindu scriptures, Ramayan took place in ‘Treta Yug’. Calculating by Hindu scriptures (Treta Yug with a tenure of 12,96,000 years, Dwapar Yug with a tenure of 8, 64,000 years, Kali Yug has just

Work Explores Ancient Tradition That Understands God as Love

Longwood, FL (PRWEB) April 27, 2008

The Apostle John teaches that God is love. The Lemma Ioanneum (1 Jn. 4:8) is one of the most important topics in the history of Christian theology, as it offers a precious insight into the depths of the Trinitarian mystery. In Eric E. Puosi’s I Am Love: A Trinitarian Agapic Ontology (.99, paperback, 978-1-60477-409-2), the author develops a theological system that springs from an ontological-relational understanding of the Johannine passage. Central to this book is the three-fold demonstration that in God love and being are one and the same thing. The concluding chapter on marriage constitutes an example of how an agapic Trinitarian theology can lead to a deeper comprehension of all other theological disciplines.

Grounded not only in scholarly works, but also in mystical writings, theological exegesis of scriptural texts, and the sensum fidelium, I Am Love offers a synthesis between academic theology and the theology of the communities. It constitutes a bridge between the church and universities, two realities that are now separated by a huge chasm.

Says Puosi, “This work takes a step further into the ancient tradition that understands God as love. This tradition begins in the Bible, and theologians of all times have contributed to it. The last main contribution was Pope Benedict’s encyclical letter, ‘Deus Charitas Est.’ My book constitutes an innovative, yet faithful contribution to this theological tradition. I offer solutions to some problems that spring from both traditional and modern theologies.”

Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 4,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order I Am Love through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.

The History Of Stained Glass ? From Ancient Times To The Renaissance

The History Of Stained Glass ? From Ancient Times To The Renaissance

Ancient Romans and Egyptians

Although the origin of stained glass is not fully understood, evidence shows that the production of colored glass dates back to the ancient Roman and Egyptian era, when these societies made smaller objects such as cups and vases.

Early Christian Church’s Influence

By the fourth and fifth centuries, the Christian Church had an early version of stained glass windows using alabaster set in wood frames. These pieces of art had the same effect as stained glass, however, they were not used to tell a story.  

The first figurative piece of stained glass is believed to be from the ninth century.  Though the piece was damaged, it is clear it is of Christ’s head. It was found in Germany in a ditch near an abbey.  

The Middle Ages

By the middle ages, traditional stained glass windows were a popular form of art in churches and castles. Stained glass was often used to depict biblical scenes, the saints, the Virgin Mary, Madonna and Child, the crucifixion, the ascension of Christ, among other stories.

The Roman and Gothic Style

During the Roman and Gothic periods, stained glass became more elaborate. Larger sheets of glass set in iron frames were used in churches, allowing additional light into churches and more ornate designs. Use of clear lines and strong figures are used in the Gothic pieces. Many churches and other buildings in Western Europe have some of the oldest and most famous intact stained glass windows dating back to the 12th century.

The Renaissance

During the Renaissance, stained glass pieces were made in more of a classical style. While both Gothic and classical stained glass windows depict Christian themes, there are differences. In classical stained glass pieces, subjects are usually dressed in period clothing, more attention is paid to the individual and realism, there is increased use of architecture, and non-religious scenes are also depicted.
