Just as a question, how many people believe that Sat Yuga ever existed? As far as I can tell, Sat Yuga is a myth/fairytale told to children, who theoretically are the only ones who should believe in it. I've never seen any historical or anthropological evidence that such a time ever existed, or that life in India has *ever* been that much different than the way it is now. So those of you who *do* believe in the Hindu idea about this previous (and hopefully future) "golden age," could you explain to me *why* you believe this is true? Is it purely because it's mentioned in Hindu scriptures, and that you take these scriptures literally? This is not just Hindu-bashing, BTW. I feel the same way about people who go on and on about Atlantis and Mu without a shred of proof that either civilization ever existed. There are some smart people here, and some of them obviously believe strongly in this model of different Yugas, and that there *was* such a golden age in the past, even if there is no record of such an age scientifically. I'm curious as to the reasons *why* they believe this. Thanks in advance...
