According to the slave/scribes, the traditional date in India for the beginning of the Kali-yuga was February 18, 31O2 B.C. This date is mentioned in various Persian, Islamic, and European writings in connection with the Biblical Flood. There are numerous evidences of several cataclysmic floods having occurred during Earth's ancient past, however there is absolutely no geological evidence showing any such global cataclysm or even a local Bible lands flood occurring in or around 31O2 B.C. Therefore, Kali-yuga absolutely did NOT begin in 3102 B.C., but much longer ago in "time" than anyone can remember.
In Vedic literature, "time" is regarded as a manifestation of the Supreme Being. There are periods of "history" written about in the Vedas containing multiples of 432,OOO years. According to the Vedic system 1OOO Yuga cycles equals One Day of Brahma. The lengths of "time" in the Satya, Treta, Dvapura and "Kali" yugas are 4, 3, 2, and 1 times an interval of 432,OOO years. Within these immense periods of time the human life span decreases from 1OO,OOO years in the Satya-yuga, to 1O,OOO years in the Treta-yuga, 1,OOO years in the Dvapura-yuga, and finally 1OO years in the Kali-yuga. A Yuga cycle consists of the passing of the four yugas, or 4,32O,OOO years, with a thousand yuga cycles making One Day of Brahma equal to 4,32O,OOO,OOO years.
If humans were to have successive linear reincarnations in these Yugas, they would have 17 (1OO,OOO year old) "lifetimes" in Satya-yuga which lasts 1,728,OOO years, 129 (1O,OOO year old) "lifetimes" in Treta-yuga which lasts 1,296,OOO years, 864 (1OOO year old) "lifetimes" in Dvapura-yuga which lasts 864,OOO years, and 4,32O (1OO year old) "lifetimes" in Kali-yuga which lasts 432,OOO years. All these numbers are multiples of 1O8, the number of beads in Eastern prayer necklaces.
