Does any Hindu mythology has spoken about existence of ice age or dinosaurs or any other nature related historical stage? As per Yugas, is there any reference of proof available to cite that these events happened on which era as per timeline of evolution?

    Good question. I wanted to ask this. But in this site scientific explanations are banned. And unfortunately, in available scriptures there is not much science discussed. The concept & timelines of Yugas should be taken with grain of salt. They are too unrealistic to be sensible. It simply ignores all the Jurrasic/ice age, cavemen, Homo-X theories. @BhavinPatel, your answers don't discuss about the scientific historical stages.

  • Yugas are spoken of in the Puranas, there is no mention of yugas in the Vedas. So it's up to you if you want to accept them or not as true or allegorical. Patanjali speaks of evolution in his Yoga Aphorisms. Do a search on 'Patanjali' on this website. Aug 4, 2015 at 13:27

    @iammind I think Bhavin's links were meant to address the dinosaur part of the question, not the historical stages part. Aug 4, 2015 at 14:24
