Yes - Agni. He wasn't just any ol' fire god. He was one of their principal gods and there are many in hymns praising him in the Rig-veda.

I don't think any symbols have come out of the Peru site yet? (Plse correct me if I'm wrong). The symbols of the Harappan Indus Valley script are pretty well known.

Another classic Vedic symbol is the swastika - which the Nazis stole from the Tibetans:

(Your elephant god in SA and maize in Hindu temples.)
Were the Harrapan pyramid builders?
No, not that I'm aware of.

They reckon it's of a deer hunt. (Assume they have deer in SA?)

preMayan Cave paintings found in Yucatan

Looks like they have just made a similiar discovery in the Chichen Itza area. Some pre-Maya paintings and some cave paintings of a date after the Spanish arrived in the same cave. Evidently there will be some photos in the next few days.

2,900 BC is pretty close to when Caral was booming. The Maya were still living in caves or were they just using the caves for ceremonial purposes.
The article does not really say.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
