The problem is that Aryans are not Indians. They came from outside. They imposed caste system upon Indians like you. So how could you be any different from the Iranians and the Afghans who got Islam from the Arabs?

You claiming Aryans are Indians just doesn't cut it. Historians state that they are outsiders. Only Hindu extremists claim that Aryans are Indians, because they want to whitewash Hinduism by eliminating its origin by foreigners.

Also you are mixing up religion and mythology, and fabricating history to whitewash Hinduism. My recommendation is to start by reading history books written by academics to clear up such confusion, and stop listening to Hindu extremists.

So? My question was: Do you want to make Sati legal?
Yes, the historians are European historians looking for their own identity. They latched on to this one word in the Rig veda and appropriated it to justify their atrocities over the natives of India. Foolish Indians with severe inferiority complex fell for it.

Where do you think the first human was born? And are you saying Hindus were the first ever humans?

How did the first Indian come about, and how do you know he or she was Hindu, what if they were of a different religion?

Are you saying the first ever Indian or person born in the Indian subcontinent was a Hindu?

You can see these questions are next to impossible to answer.

What we do know, all humans today share the same needs of oxygen, food and water. Seems we all come from the same family. The idea of Adam and Eve shared by Islam, Judaism and Christianity say that A Hindu , Christian, Muslim or Atheist today comes from the first humans which were Adam and Eve, so we are all related it seems. Or perhaps would you say Indian folks are not human and are from a different planet?
Hindus do not believe the Adam and Eve and other biblical myths.

these kind of threads are nonsense.
What defines ancestry here?
if 1500 years of history doesn't count as ancestry then what does count as that?
Christians should be proud of their religion while accepting its short comings,same goes for muslims,same goes for hindus,and pretty much everybody.

Just remember none of the religion are "original",we do not know which religion was practiced by the first humans who left africa.

Most people wont be able to trace their ancestors back past a few generations so who really knows where exactly their ancestors lived and what they worshipped, you can’t be ashamed of something like this

In our world today religion can be very diverse. There are at least tens of thousands of people following Chrislam, a religion where the adherent is both Muslim and Christian. In addition, one can be both Jewish and Christian, or Muslim and Jewish. In fact some Muslims of the modern middle east have Jewish ancestors.

Some Hindus practice a duel form of religion. There are Hindus whom are also members of the Church of Scientology. A few thousand Indians at least, probably more by now have joined the COS.

Easily there are Hindus whom are also at the same time Christian.

One can not prove Adam and Eve is a myth, same with so called evolution. Even Scientists continue to change their world theories as history advances. 500 years from now people might be more religious, perhaps less.. Point can be made that non religious and religious people do not have the answer to the meaning of life or which religion(s) are true.

In Iran at least, Islam is actually on a steady decline, as many become atheists or convert to Christianity. The Mullahs are deperate to hunt down those apostates, but it seems that their actions only accelerate the decline.
I always thought that the Iranians/Persians should have their own religion. Islam doesn't seem to suit them.

actually one can quite easily prove that adam and eve is a myth,simply through genetics.
literal adam and eve are disprove,metaphorical anything can't ever be disproved if you were talking about that though.

The historical meaning of the term Hindu has evolved with time. Starting with the Persian and Greek references to the land of the Indusin the 1st millennium BCE through the texts of the medieval era,[5] the term Hindu implied a geographic, ethnic or cultural identifier for people living in the Indian subcontinent around or beyond the Sindhu (Indus) river.[6] By the 16th century, the term began to refer to residents of the subcontinent who were not Turkic or Muslims

Hindusim isnt a Religion and Hindus arent a Race,
Hinduism can be labeled a religion though.


Hinduism, major world religion originating on the Indian subcontinent and comprising several and varied systems of philosophy, belief, and ritual. Although the name Hinduism is relatively new, having been coined by British writers in the first decades of the 19th century, it refers to a rich cumulative tradition of texts and practices, some of which date to the 2nd millennium BCE or possibly earlier. If the Indus valley civilization (3rd–2nd millennium BCE) was the earliest source of these traditions, as some scholars hold, then Hinduism is the oldest living religion on Earth. Its many sacred texts in Sanskrit and vernacular languages served as a vehicle for spreading the religion to other parts of the world, though ritual and the visual and performing arts also played a significant role in its transmission. From about the 4th century CE, Hinduism had a dominant presence in Southeast Asia, one that would last for more than 1,000 years.
