Our history is NOT a myth

I raised this doubt couple of days back in the 'doubts and discussions' section. Not many people have noticed it so opening a new thread. The mods can quickly close this down but hopefully they will realize the seriousness and take some action.
Hinduism is not a myth. Ramayan, Mahabharat etc are in our history. Durga, Shiv, Krishna etc. are not from a harry potter book.
So please stop calling it all 'mythology'. I have never heard 'Islamic mythology', 'Christian mythology'. Please stop aping westerners and putting down our religion like this.

Those who still insist on calling our history as mythology, I would love to read the logic and explanation behind it. Maybe I'm in the wrong and hinduism is a myth afterall.

I would like to believe that I do understand the meaning of the word mythology. Smile

So I am sorry but I'm not getting your point, just because "christian mythology does exist" as you say, how is that sort of a valid reason for clubbing all of ancient Hindu history as mythology??

Are you sure the everything related to "satan worship" throughout history can be clubbed as "christian mythology", with no historical basis whatsoever??

Hindus themselves don't care my friend. I thought I was the first one trying this out. Didn't the moderators reply to you on this? Confused

As I said my friend, I don't try explaining these things to people on online forums, for these are rather boring platforms. You've moderators controlling things, replies take days to materlize, and by that time, you lose all interest, or have simply forgotten what you wrote where in which thread. LOL

Its in a real life situation, yes, that's where the fun is discussing these things, especially when there are people hell bent on proving you worng, so at times, it turns into a shouting match, & if it got really funny & the participants of "civilised discussions" turn out to be manly enough & not averse to some violence, yes, that's where the real fun is discussing these things. LOL
