That's exactly what any Christian will say. They say it is years since
Adam. And That's exactly what Jewish calendar is keeping track of.
Now, let's come back to calculators. According to the Jewish calendar,
today is year 5765. 7513-5765=1748 years difference, I am sorry.
Some say that one calendar is since Adam and the other since the cre-
ation of World, and this would suggest that there is a relation between
7 days of creation and mystirious number 1748. 1748/7=249.71... Hm...
I day of creation = 249.71 years? From what I learned in Seminary in
Russia, the year 1748 in our calendar is the year corresponding to the
war described in Mahabharata.
By the way, it is a well-known fact that Sanskrit (Samskrit, Samo-Skritiy)
was brought to India by Arians who came from North with the Vedas, and
the word Veda means "knowledge" in Slavic languages (see also verb "vedat'"
which means "to know");
It is also well known that so-called "Etruscan" script predates Latin and
Greek scripts. It would be a big stretch to say that "Northern Pagans" were
illiterate. I would say they were defeated, and the memory of them has been,
for centuries, and still is being destroyed right now in this very discussion.
