To tone down the seriousness of the foll article, let me narrate a declaration by a Christian Mission volunteer in Tamil Nadu.
Dr. Jasmine Asir declares that,
The sysyems of Indian philosophy,Saiva Siddhantha,Advaita,Visishdadvaida,all of these were derived from Ancient Christianity!
Was there Christianity before Christ?
And what is this ‘Adi Christianity?
There is something more.
She says Thiruvalluvar met Saint Thomas and wrote This is not a matter to be left unchallenged.
Repeated lies have a tendency to be taken as History,as in the Aryan Invasion theory in particular and Indian history in general.
There have been attempts to propagate the theory that Christ visited India and his tomb is in Kashmir.
And there is this process of converting Hindus to Christianity by Christians posing as Brahmins.
There is this instance of Caldwell,changing his name as Veerama munivar in Tamil to post date Tamil literature.
He wrote a Tamil work on Christ.
You have Maxmueller,who translated the Vedas in English as Sacred books of the East,who was a Christian Missionary .
He delared in his letter that,
“It (The Rigveda) is the root of their religion and to show them what the root is, I feel sure, is the only way of uprooting all that has sprung from it during the last three thousand years.”-Max Mueller to His wife,in his letter.
Now to Thiruvalluvar.
He wrote Thirukkural and he is currently dated around 2000 ago.
I am of the view that he can be dated much earlier.
It was authored by Valluvar, also known in full as Thiruvalluvar. The text has been dated variously from 300 BCE to 7th century CE. The traditional accounts describe it as the last work of the third Sangam, but linguistic analysis suggests a later date of 450 to 500 CE’
Thomas is traditionally believed to have sailed to India in AD 50 (but there is evidence of his being in Taxila in AD 43, where he did not have success) to spread the Christian faith, and is believed to have landed at the port of Muziris, (modern-day North Paravur and Kodungalloor in modern-day Kerala state) where there was a Jewish community at the time.
Hinduism has been in existence for over 5000 Years and Rig Veda is dated at 5114 BC.
However this is pushed back by thousands of years in the light of new evidence.
Please check my articles onPoompuhar,Rama,Krishna,Tamils.
It is sheer nonsense academically and is a sinister attempt distorting history to legitimise Christianity and aims at Conversion.
