There is tremendous interest among Hindus to find out the date when the events of the Ramayana took place. Among the various dates proposed for the Ramayana, the date of 12209 BCE has become very popular. Once a thesis gains traction, many people, including educated ones buy into it though they have little knowledge about Indian texts or astronomy. It is thus important for people with subject matter expertise to critically examine these claims. The central thesis behind this claim is that Indian luni-solar months have been shifting with respect to the Indian seasons by one month every 2,000 years. With specific examples from texts spanning from earliest times to now, it is shown that there is no evidence for it. The date of 12209 BCE is based on the claim that a unique event involving a comet took place in that year. However, it is based on software-generated illusion as the path and brightness of a comet cannot be predicted beyond 100 years. Further, a detailed refutation is provided for each “astronomy poison pill” to show beyond doubt that there is no evidence in support of 12209 BCE date of the Ramayana.
