Here’s an explanation of the Ten Avatars Of Vishnu according to Hinduism.

The first avatar was the Matsya avatar, it means the fish. That is because life began in the water.

Then came the Kurma Avatar, which means the tortoise, because life moved from the water to the land. The amphibian!

So the Tortoise denoted the evolution from sea to land.

Third avatar was Varaha, the wild boar, which meant the wild animals with not much intellect, you call them the Dinosaurs.

The fourth avatar was Narasimha, half man and half animal, the evolution from wild animals to intelligent beings.

Fifth, the Vaman avatar, the midget or dwarf, who could grow really tall. And that is because, there were two kinds of humans, Homo Erectus and Homo Sapiens and Homo Sapiens won that battle.

The Sixth avatar was Parshuram, the man who wielded the axe, the man who was a cave and forest dweller. Angry, and not social.

The seventh avatar was Ram, the first rational thinking social being, who practiced and laid out the laws of society and the basis of human relationships.

The Eighth avatar was Balarama, a true farmer who showed value of agriculture in the life.

The Ninth avatar was Krishna, the statesman, the politician, the diplomat, the Ambassador, the sutile interpreter, the lover who played the game of society and taught how to live and thrive in the adharmic social structure.

And finally, will come Kalki, the man we’re all working on. The man who will be genetically supreme.

Mythology creates faith and makes man sensible. It is just the way you look at it – Religious or Scientific. Your call.
