Sacred Fossils and Hindu Pseudoarchaeology With Dr. Holly Walters: Archaeological Fantasies Ep 99

Today we talk with Dr. Holly Walters about sacred Salagrama Fossils in the Hindu religion. What are these beautiful Fossils? How are they incorporated into the Hindu religion? And what weird powers has the American New Age assigned these religious artifacts? Dr. Walters gives us a fantastic break down of the three major religions in the area of Nepal and Tibet and an interesting look at their opinions on the New Age’s appropriation of certain aspects of their religions.
