Well this is proof that ancient aliens had perfect posture.

If the Times of India would not, on occasion, pretend to be the National Enquirer I would be impressed.

How do they know that the paintings are 10,000 years old? The one clearly is like 10 feet from the entrance to the "cave", so it can't be more then a couple hundred years old, or it would have mildewed and rotted away by now.

I say fake. Too bright. Too sharp. Not aged. Even just air would have aged these more then they appear, given 10,000 years.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

They're not that old.

They depict scenes from the adventures of Rama.

Not Ramar of the Jungle.  They are older than that.

The story of Rama is somewhere between 3500 and 2500 years old, right? That is not 10,000 years. Probably just more nationalistic exaggeration?

Story of Rama goes way back...these images clearly not related to the story.

From what I've read, they are.
Are you qualified to determine this on your own?
Have you studied the cave and the paintings and archaeological evidence there?
Can you tell us exactly how this painting was dated?

You also have to bear in mind that the afore mentioned Mr. JR Bhagat is not only known to discover "alien paintings" but has also been known to have made other "amazing" discoveries. My knowledge of Hindi is very rusted, which may is the reason why I can't find that gentleman on the website linked to by Harte either.

Maybe older, if the references in this cave are older.

The earliest writings date back about 3700 years.  No doubt there was an oral tradition before that.  It's depictions like these that they have to go by as far as dating Rama's legend when looking back to a time before they started writing it down.

Well I'd have agreed EXCEPT for the fact that Elders of the First Peoples of Australia have as their sacred duty to maintain the art, which includes repainting the paintings every couple of years (as theirs is a living culture, they can also "add to" the art (for example, there are "rays" coming off some of the luminous entities now that were there when they were first seen by Europeans)).

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.
