It may be that the beginning of the Kali Yuga (3102 BC) is connected to the birth of Lamech (father of Noah)--which is said to have occurred in 3103 BC. And then the flood of Noah happened later (circa 2400 BC or there about). This would make allowance for Yahveh Elohim putting Adam in the garden in 4004 BC.
The name "Lamech" may be a combination of the Hebrew prefix "le" (meaning "to" or "towards") and the Hebrew verb "muk" (meaning "low" or "depressed"). Thus "Lamech" most likely means: "towards a lowering" or "for a lowering"--the same way that "le" in "l'nephesh" (Genesis 2:7) means "for a living soul."
Then it could be said that the Kali Yuga--an age in which men would love evil (would love the things of this world more than the things of God)--began very near the birth of Lamech--whose birth signified the advent of this lowered age of darkness which we find ourselves in. It's also interesting to note that Lamech lived to be 777 years old. This too must be symbolic--of the perfection of Adamic man? Well, we know that the bloodline from Adam to Noah was pure: the line through which Jesus Christ would come was pure.
According to Mahabharata scholar Vartak the Kali Yuga is not mentioned at all in the Mahabharat epic. In the poem it is noted that the time was approaching Kali, that the 18 day war of Kurukshetra (Northern India) took place in the evening of Dwapara Yuga, the yuga preceding the Kali Yuga. (Apparently it goes like this: 1) Satya Yuga (golden age), 2) Treta Yuga (silver age), 3) Dwapara Yuga (bronze age) and 4) Kali Yuga (dark age).)
It is said that each yuga lasts 3,000 years and that the last 300 years of each is a transitional period. A yuga cycle lasts 24,000 years--with the first 12,000 years descending from the Satya Yuga to the Kali Yuga--and with the last 12,000 years ascending from another (adjacent) ascending Kali Yuga to the Satya Yuga (again). The current yuga cycle began in 12676 BC, when the earth was still in a major ice age (though the ice had begun to thaw).
According to this model the flood of Atlantis occurred in the transitional period of the descending Satya Yuga--that is the Atlantis flood occurred circa 9600 BC--76 years before the (descending) Treta Yuga began. And according to this model we are in the ascending Kali Yuga, which will end in 2025 CE.
According to this model the Mahabharata War (5561 BC) occurred 1,115 years after the beginning of the (descending) Dwapara Yuga. And 5561 BC was 1,885 years before the end of this descending Dwapara Yuga.
The Atlantis flood occurred within the descending Satya Yuga, and the Mahabharata war took place within the descending Dwapara Yuga. The return of Jesus Christ will occur within the ascending Kali Yuga--which follows the descending Kali Yuga ushered in by the birth of Lamech (meaning "towards a lowering").
