    Shree Rama
         Dear Bhagavathas, i have a question that needs some help and
advice.  If this is a question that does not belong to this list please
let me know.  I just wanted to know how people deal with the idea of
darwin's theory of evolution and the history of the universe as
propounded by the vedas and shastras.  Sometimes due to the world we
live in especially going to college and stuff, i come across tons of
"information and evidence" for the darwinian theory but i have such a
strong belief in the vedic origin of the universe sometimes it just
becomes tough.  Can you please help me out on this?  Thank you for your
help and please excuse this ignorant one if i offend anyone.
