OF THE ARYAN INVASION
Mechanics of the Aryan Invasion
The Aryan invasion theory was invented to solve the riddle of
languages. However the invasion theory itself is filled with problems.
We could say that the Aryan invasion theory is an attempt to
solve one riddle by postulating another.
If such an invasion did occur, what would have caused it? Central Asia
is not a very favorable region for producing populations even today,
as we have already noted. How could it produce the populations
necessary to overrun not only India but much of the Middle East and
Europe. Ancient India was not uninhabited. After the long urban Harappan age it was highly
populated at the time of the proposed invasion.
Such populations could not have easily been overwhelmed, forced to move
or be assimilated. After all it was not an organized conquest but a
random movement of tribal peoples which is postulated for the Aryans.
