This is the wording of the footnote in the 1946 edition. It remains unchanged in the 1951 edition.

The start of the materialistic ages, according to Hindu scriptural reckonings, was 3102 B.C. That year was the beginning of the Descending Dwapara Age (see page 174). Modern scholars, blithely believing that 10,000 years ago all men were sunk in a barbarous Stone Age, summarily dismiss as "myths" all records and traditions of very ancient civilizations in India, China, Egypt, and other lands.


This is how it appears in the 1956 edition.

The start of the materialistic ages, according to Hindu scriptural reckonings, was 3102 B.C. This was the beginning of the last Descending Dwapara Yuga of the Equinoctial Cycle, and also the start of the Kali Yuga of the Universal Cycle (see pp. 174, 175n.). Most modern scholars, believing that 10,000 years ago humanity was living in a barbarous Stone Age, summarily dismiss as "myths" the widespread traditions of very ancient civilizations in Lemuria, Atlantis, India, China, Japan, Egypt, Mexico, and many other lands.
