A very interesting teaching if you can take the time to watch.  I think it contains valuable insights for all to consider.

The Vedas (Sanskrit véda वेद, "knowledge") are a large body of texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, the texts constitute the oldest layer of  Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-1 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-2 - The Vedas are http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apaurusheyatva - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-3 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-4 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-5 - They are supposed to have been directly revealed, and thus are called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%9Aruti - śruti ("what is heard"), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-6 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-7 - distinguishing them from other religious texts, which are called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sm%E1%B9%9Bti - smṛti ("what is remembered").

The Vedas are among the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_literature - oldest sacred texts . The Samhitas date to roughly 1500–1000 BCE, and the "circum-Vedic" texts, as well as the redaction of the Samhitas, date to c. 1000-500 BCE, resulting in a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedic_period - Vedic period , spanning the mid 2nd to mid 1st millennium BCE, or the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze_Age - Late Bronze Age and the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Age_India - Iron Age .

Transmission of texts in the Vedic period was by oral tradition alone, preserved with precision with the help of elaborate mnemonic techniques.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas

Hindus believe that the texts(the Vedas) were received by scholars direct from God and passed on to the next generations by word of mouth.

This, I found very interesting.



The ka'aba of Zoroaster

I am involved in an interesting study of Darius, the king of Persia... gentle ruler... one of the first not to slaughter when he conquered.  Seems people have been evolving, from contact with one another, for a very long time.
I wonder when the ka'aba in Mecca was really first built.

The Cathars of France were said to have a stone that had fallen from heaven... it was also by some believed that the Holy Grail was a dark stone...   ???  Interesting where mythology will take you.

Perhaps if you had actually studied this matter more closely, you would have found out that the name "Kaaba of Zoroaster" is from the 14th-century.  It was not the name of the structure when it was first built or for centuries after.  According to the Encyclopedia Iranica, it was most likely an Achaemenid royal tomb, and there is no evidence that it was ever a shrine or a place of pilgrimage.
