Response from a friend re the Dating of the Vedas

A friend writes:

"You seem to be asking, among other things, Can we prove the Rigveda is not from early AD? Some texts have historical references which make them dateable. For instance, there is development in the astronomy and astrology. That does not seem to be the case in relation to the Vedas....

It is usually said that the Rigveda reflects an early society in N.W. India. Your question is so lateral thinking, that it is difficult to see what would decide it! Maybe I shall get some light on the logic after a while. I'll keep working on it!"
