Middlegray's edits

I removed Middlegray's edit with the edit comment, "Thanks for the source. That allowed me to determine that the source, and therefore the para., was scurrilous misinformation, so I've removed it."

Middlegray reinstated his edit, with the edit comment, "Dear Philip J. Rayment, I am from India, I am Hindu and you are niether, so your judgment of authenticity of my sources is as good as my judgement about KKK".

True, I'm not from India, and I'm not Hindu, but I am from Australia and I am a Christian, so that makes me competent to judge what that anti-Christian Hindu site was saying, particularly when it said, "The terrorists [Christians] receive military aid from extremist Christian groups in Australia and New Zealand". This is either utter nonsense, or at best an extremely atypical situation.

Karajou reverted the reinstatement. Nevertheless, the reinstatement did provide a different source, and the second part of the edit at least is supported there, so I am reinstating that bit.

Contradiction

Would just like to note that it is said in this article that Hinduism in not a polytheistic religion. But if you click on the "polytheism" link, it says otherwise.

Controversies?

Why would the Hinduism page be the only page of a major religion to receive a controversies section despite the fact almost every religious institution in history has had many controversies? Also the two examples included the caste system which was not originally part of hinduism but was actually a way for the indo-european invaders to obtain control over the indigenous population, and sati which is not a traditional hindu belief. This is only a question as to why the other religion based pages don't have these sections.

If you have information that should be added to this and other articles, then add it. Making substantive contributions is more helpful than complaining on the talk page. Excessive talk is disfavored here. DanielPulido 03:05, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
There's a lot of material about that on the Internet.[1][2] But, I do wonder if any of those will be allowed in here. --Free Your Mind 23:47, 3 August 2011 (EDT)

I am sorry If you feel I am just complaining that is not the case i am just concerned that an article that is quite small must receive a controversies section while much larger articles (i.e. Christianity, Judaism) don't receive such sections. I personally feel that there should not be a controversies section because it is about the religion itself not an institution or the people who practice it.

How old is Hinduism?

This is a really good article. My only problem with it is the implausible assertion that Hinduism is about 5,000 years old which predates the Flood by about 700 years, ThomasTrimble 14:29, 18 July 2011 (EDT)

Actually Hinduism(Sanatan Dharma) is older than anyone knows (might be over 10,000 years old). Recorded time-marks in Hinduism are Ramayan (Treta era: around 5114 BC), and Mahabharat (Dwapar era: till 3102 BC). Kali era, the current Age started on 18 Feb, 3102 BC; within 2 decades of the current mayan calander(12 August, 3114 BC). More liberal theories date Ramayan & Treta era to 1,750,000 years ago. --Free Your Mind 10:46, 22 July 2011 (EDT)
Just because the religion claims it is that old doesn't mean it actually is. There is quite a lot of evidence (see Counterexamples to an old earth supporting the fact that the Earth is 6000 years old. Hinduism claims to be millions of years old, which even according to liberals is ridiculus. NickP 17:02, 23 July 2011 (EDT)
While western time concept is linear, Vedic Time concept is circular and depends only on the movements of various heavenly bodies in the cosmos[3]. For example, the cycle of moon around the Earth, the cycle of Earth around the Sun, cycle of Sun around the Galaxy, etc. And each cycle involves a progression from a golden age of peace and spiritual progress to a final age of violence and spiritual degradation. Acording to the liberal view, there are 4,320,000 years in a cycle of the 4 Ages/Yugs called Mahayug, about 1000 of Mahayugs (4.32 Billion years) until the destruction of creation, followed by the same amount of years in darkness(Earth, Heaven & Hell disintegrates), and this will repeat 36,000 times (311.04 trillion years), one lifetime of the creator[4]. --Free Your Mind 02:54, 24 July 2011 (EDT)
