Misrepresentation and rambling,
This review is from: Human Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin's Theory (Hardcover)
This is a very long book obliged to tour through the authors own works and most of Western metaphysics and countless other cultural belief systems. The author presents the material in detail and in a scholarly fashion. The problem is, most of what is in the book has nothing directly to do with the supposed subject of the book. And that feels very misrepresented and misleading.
There is sparse information here about the supposed Vedic alternative to Darwin. In fact slogging through this, beyond an occasional crumb from the Vedas, it is not until the very last chapter, 11, that you get to a chapter that supposedly deals with the theory. But even there you have the Vedas jumbled up with standard quantum theory, big bang, and the entire lot.
So I have to state that the title is misleading. No doubt the author knows in his own mind the subject of which he supposedly was going to talk about. However he did not do the reader justice by sharing this information in any kind of clear and concise manner. A definate pass. Suggest you stay with the authors other exhaustive work if you are looking for evidence which provides fact after fact that modern archeology is largely built on hidden truths and outright lies Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race
