I don't think the Tao Te Ching is older than the Upanishads or the Torah. Can we get approximate dates for these? — Unsigned, by: Researcher / talk / contribs

Please sign your somments with four tildes. You might be right. Let's get dates? humanUser talk:Human 22:10, 12 October 2007 (EDT)
Sorry about forgetting to sign. I have a copy of the Tao at home which might have some kind of date (off hand, I think it's supposed to be from ~500 BCE, which would coincide with the life of Guatama and thus post-date the Upanishads, but I can't swear to that.)

Yeah, mebbe we got it wrong. Feel free to improve! Especially with "footnotes!" humanUser talk:Human 23:26, 12 October 2007 (EDT)
My translation didn't have it after all. According to the Brittanica, Laozi was supposed to have lived in the 6th century. Researcher 23:28, 12 October 2007 (EDT)
Thanks. I snarked up the rest of them until we get reality checks. humanUser talk:Human 00:02, 13 October 2007 (EDT)


This is a cited and templated dismbiguation page. Shouldn't it be an article with a link to a category? The unbusinesslikeman of business 03:15, 27 May 2011 (UTC) it! 03:40, 27 May 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ
Well done! C®ackeЯ
Thank you. The unbusinesslikeman of business 03:46, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Torah date[edit]

Let's just say that the dating evidence for the Torah is a lot less clear cut than stated here. A Hellenistic date is just as likely. Scherben (talk) 14:23, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
