Does carbon 14 dating disprove the bible
This is clear from various references in literature where Rishis have been called “Mantra Karta” or creator of the mantras.For example: Aitareya Brahman 6.1 Tandya Brahman 13.3.24 Tattiriya Aranyak 4.1.1 Katyayana Shraut Sutra 3.2.9 Grihya Sutra 2.1.13 Nirukta 3.11 Sarvanukramani Paribhasha Prakaran 2.4 Raghuvansh 5.4Today, all mantras have a Rishi who is basically the person who wrote that mantra.Thus believing Vedas to be not created by Rishis is merely a superstition.The basic foundation of this claim of Rishis being authors of mantras is presence of word ‘Mantrakarta’ or its root in various forms. However we shall begin with some logical as well as historical evidences that clearly imply that Rishis cannot be considered authors or creators of the Vedic mantras.Non-Vedics consider these Rishis to be authors instead of researchers of Vedic mantras.)Disclaimer: By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings.We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape.We would request them to first issue fatwa against those Muslim scholars who use Vedas to prove Muhammad in them or admit them to be first holy texts. etc etc.”These are serious questions for introspection and analysis. However, in spirit of Vedas, each of us has the liberty to explore and believe in whatever appears most reasonable to him or her after his or her most sincere understanding.
Someone like Abdullah Tariq, the mentor of Zakir Naik and celebrated Islamic scholar, also vociferously asserts that Vedas are the first divine texts.It has primarily been the atheist and communist circles that has refuted the idea of Vedas being divine, despite agreeing on Vedas being oldest.This is primarily driven from their founding assumption – that we all are chemical reactions and nothing more than that.All prominent scholars and researchers agree on Vedas being the oldest texts known to humankind.Nonetheless Vedas remain the most meticulously preserved texts available today.The whole Qadiyani movement is based on the assertion of Vedas being the first divine texts and Mirza Ghulam being the last Prophet.While we have refuted the wrong interpretations of Vedic mantras by likes of Zakir Naik and Maulana Vidyarthi, (refer ) one indeed must applaud their efforts to promote acceptability of Vedas as first divine texts among Muslims, with whatever little knowledge and huge constraints they had.There is no blinded foundation, no compulsion – only commitment to a scientific and rational temper.With this heavy introduction, let us start our analysis.The logical flaws and unexplained questions that arise from this assumption of these ‘atheist/communist chemical reactions’ is not the focus of this article.What is interesting is that the baton of the atheists has now been taken by several Muslim apologetics who have come up with a series of articles refuting Vedas of divine status.
