civilization of ancient India, of the Indus Valley, has now been proved to have been
centered on the Sarasvati river of Vedic fame, which went dry around 1900 BC. Hence the
Vedas must be earlier than the drying up of this river and must be indigenous to India as
the image of the Sarasvati pervades all of the Vedas back to the oldest parts of the Rig
Veda. In addition, from the Mehrgarh site of 6500
BC to the civilization of the Ganges area after 900 BC can be traced a continuity of
people and customs, and no evidence of any major intrusive new populations.
Such finds confirm Vedic astronomical symbolism that mentions
equinoctial and solstice positions going back to 2500 BC (the Krittika, Pleiades or Taurus
vernal equinox) and earlier. In light of this new evidence we should examine the proposed
differences between the Vedic and Shaivite religions, which have been based upon the
invasion theory, particularly the difference between Shiva and Indra, the main Vedic God.
