Scientific dating of ramayana era

Stars shift position too vis-a-vis the earth so the star field we see in the night sky is not what the ancients saw 9000 years ago.

But there are others who argue that there is no proof Rama lived.

A billion Hindus believe he did and an unbroken tradition of Rama worship has continued for thousands of years in India.

Rama is also a hero in Indonesia (despite it being a Muslim country), in Thailand and in several other South East Asian countries.

Obviously, they are neither concerned nor aware of the depths of information that can be found in support of the traditions for which India is especially known.

Or, they are really attempting to dismantle or destroy the authority of the timeless nature of the civilization of the country.

This is perhaps the first instance in modern Indian history that a historical fact was established through scientific methods. So the Mahabharata was true, and since it mentions incidents from the Ramayana, then doesn’t it prove that Rama also existed?

Also, literary references to the characters from the Ramayana Era provide limits after which the Ramayana could not have occurred.For example, Valmiki is referred to in the Taittiriya Brahmana (dated to 4600 BCE) and therefore Ramayana must have been written before it was composed.The wonderful thing about the Ramayana is that when Valmiki wrote the epic, he made it idiot-proof.The Indian government, with its appeasement plank, has even pleaded in court in a case regarding the Sethusamudram Canal that the Ramayana is a myth without any proof.Like I said earlier, when it comes to Hindu matters, it’s open season for everyone.For determining the precise time of the Ramayana events, scientists use astronomical calculations. To decipher the astronomical encodings has not been a trivial task, and not many have attempted to do so.

    Depending on who it’s coming from, this can be flattering or very insulting (especially the friends who urge you to compromise).
