But I found another similar one!
Despite all that number fudging, attempting to corroborate a bunch of nonsensical claims with current scientific evidence, no where is the number 4.23 billion years to be found. Certainly not specifically in the context of the age of the earth.
Also, you are still ignoring all I have said about the scientific method. Among the number of seriously stupid things that have been written in the vedas by stone-age Indians, the mystics have latched onto to one concept- the timeline- as being proof of scientific prowess. It would still not be science even if it happens to align perfectly with known science, because it is not arrived at through scientific methods. Every religion does this. Hindus are not unique. In fact, Muslims claim that everything that scientists have and will discover has already been written in the quran. As ridiculous as that might sound to you, it is exactly
what you are doing here wrt the vedas.
We're not going to make any progress here unless you decide to read up on the scientific method. Even a basic philosophy course on epistemology might do you some good. Till then, let's call it adiós instead of buenos noche.
