Napoleon and the Kali Yuga

I have heard that there was a writer who, happening to come across the Gospels, thought: “Why should not I also make a Gospel? Am I any worse than those ancient barbarians, Matthew, Mark, Luke and Johnnie? I am much more cultured than they ever were….” and so set about it. It seemed very far-fetched. But recently I read that, some time after his disastrous expedition to Egypt, Napoleon said: “I saw the way to achieve all my dreams. I would found a new religion. I saw myself marching to Asia, mounted on an elephant, a turban on my head, and in my hand a new Koran that I would have composed to suit my needs”. Hitler testified how he was inspired by the example of Napoleon.
