Noah and the Flood Described in Ancient Yoga Texts

There is a highly interesting but somewhat awkward conversation to be had. It concerns obvious similarities between ancient Eastern / Hindu beliefs and Genesis is the Bible. It is a known fact that Noah and the Flood, the building of the Ark, and on-boarding of various life forms can be found described in ancient yoga texts such as the Shatapatha Brahmana, the Matsya Purana, and a few others.

These texts are difficult to date and may be contemporaneous with the Bible, predate, or post date it. 

Nevertheless, the fact that ancient yogis and Israelites shared a worldview is noteworthy.

Especially noteworthy is that the ancient yogis even gave  a time frame for the Biblical worldwide extinction event.

They said it happened about 250 million years ago. 

They also said that the global flooding came later. It was preceded by volcanism. The entire timeframe for the global disaster was between 250-118 million years ago.

Does this connect with science?

Science says the world did witness a mass extinction episode about 250 million years ago and indeed it was associated with intense volcanism!

How could the ancient yogis know this?

The Seven Days of Genesis

Genesis 1 in the Bible contains an ancient and highly controversial description of creation that apparently occurred across 6 ‘days’. God rests on the 7th.

Many scientists believe the description in Genesis contradicts those of modern findings.

However, during a moment of intense prayer and meditation,  Sanjay discovered a coherent solution that can revolutionize the way we look at Genesis.

This is what Sanjay realized: The dispute about Genesis’s day length has arisen due to two information gaps.

1. The faithful were unable to propose a coherent interpretation of the Biblical 6 days. Some suggested each day must be longer than 24 hours, but nobody was able to say how much longer.

2. Scientists were unclear about the age of the universe until 2003. Various theories proposed 10, 12, or 20 billion years. 

Fortunately, in 2003, data from space-based telescopes helped resolve the issue. Scientists now declare the universe is 13.8 billion years old. 

With this precise figure, it’s now easy to see how long each Biblical day should be – assuming it is intended to describe reality – and how it parallels scientific discovery. 

If we take the scientific baseline of 13.8 billion years and calibrate into 6 equal days – each spanning 2.3 billion years – something remarkable happens. 

The description of each eon-long day in Genesis and its timeline across all 7 Days corresponds with major past and future episodes of our Galaxy and Earth. 

In total, there are twenty-two parallels, without a single contradiction! 

Is that by chance?
