I don't think anyone claims that anyone in particular created it, unlike say buddhism or christianity. Its a paganistic/polytheistic beleif system
that has lots of variations and has meshed in different places with other different beleif systems. Its supposed to be very similar to what the
ancient egyptian religion was like, and probably would be recognizable to ancient greeks and romans and the like.
SOme say that the aryans who came from the gobi desert by 1500BC
I don't think anyone says that the aryans were from the gobi. Also, wasn't the traditional date much older than 1500 BC?
gave it but ramayana happened 1.7million yrs ago
The events in the ramayana almost certainly didn't happen 1.7 mya.
1.85 million years ago homo habilis
was walking the earth and 'man' hadn't left africa yet. Around 700,000 years ago there were members of
walking around java and the like, but I think its safe to assume that the ramayana, if anything like a historical kernel upon
which the myth is based, happened, that it happened after homo sapiens
evolved, lets call that 500,000 years ago, and pretend that there's no
concern about social structures, language, culture, or technology, which would all put a much
younger date on it.
and hinduism was still there.
Is hinduism in the ramayana? Or is there a polytheistic religion thats not so different from it in there? Afterall, what defines hinduism? Does
something have to be Vedic to count as hindu?
Did the aliens gave it cuz hinduism states about matrix,karma,moksha which is very diff from other religions.
Every religion talks about things that are very different from the others.
