In the beginning, there was only one Veda. It was meticulously detail-oriented, complex and complicated in a sense that it was not understandable to a normal human being having average intelligence quotient. To simplify this complexity, the original Veda was divided into four parts. 

One hymn of the SriMad Bhagawat Gita supports this claim. In that sacred text Veda, there were thousands of recensions, hymns, Mantra-sanhita or treaties. 

 

For this complexity and other reasons it can be reasonably guessed that the Veda was not written or crafted by a certain person at a certain point of time, rather it has been evolved with human civilization over a period of time involving various thinkers, saints and intellectuals. According a school of thought, at the end of the Dwarap Yuga (there are four epochs called Satya Yuga means the epoch of truthfulness, Tetra Yuga means the epoch of the generosity, Dwapar Yuga means the epoch of the change, and Kali yuga means the epoch of the sinfulness) Lord Krsna with Saint Veda Byash organized a sacred fire ritual worship or sacrifice, devotion or ceremony and divided the Veda into four parts for the benefit of the humanity and to ensure the virtuous lifestyle for everyone.
