Antiquity of the Srîmad-Bhâgavatam or Bhâgavata-Purâna, from the classic literature of India

Horacio Francisco Arganis-Juárez


This is a part-summary of the Master of Arts Thesis investigation into the antiquity of the

Srîmad-Bhâgavatam also referred to as Bhâgavata-Purâna within the classic literature of India. The work uses the scientific method to evaluate competing paradigms to establish that both the Srîmad-Bhâgavatam and its concept of the four ages comes from a time previous to the Ice Age, when it is believed that man migrated from Asia to the Americas.

Keywords: Textual Antiquity; Epistemology; Historicity; Post hoc ergo propter hoc.
