Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous

A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.

For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction. The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators' gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher estimates that the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan in 1945.

The Mahabharata clearly describes a catastrophic blast that rocked the continent. "A single projectile charged with all the power in the Universe...An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as 10,000 suns, rose in all its splendor...it was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes an entire race.

"The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out, pottery broke without any apparent cause, and the birds turned white.

"After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected. To escape from this fire, the soldiers threw themselves into the river."

A HISTORIAN COMMENTS

Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli says that Indian sacred writings are full of such descriptions, which sound like an atomic blast as experienced in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He says references mention fighting sky chariots and final weapons. An ancient battle is described in the Drona Parva, a section of the Mahabharata. "The passage tells of combat where explosions of final weapons decimate entire armies, causing crowds of warriors with steeds and elephants and weapons to be carried away as if they were dry leaves of trees," says Ganguli.

"Instead of mushroom clouds, the writer describes a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds as consecutive openings of giant parasols. There are comments about the contamination of food and people's hair falling out."

ARCHEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION PROVIDES INFORMATION

Archeologist Francis Taylor says that etchings in some nearby temples he has managed to translate suggest that they prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city. "It's so mid-boggling to imagine that some civilization had nuclear technology before we did. The radioactive ash adds credibility to the ancient Indian records that describe atomic warfare."

Construction has halted while the five member team conducts the investigation. The foreman of the project is Lee Hundley, who pioneered the investigation after the high level of radiation was discovered.

Ancient Nuclear Warfare

“Anybody not wearing 2 million sunblock is gonna have a real bad day. Get it?” --Sarah Connor, Terminator 2

"Thank you, India." --Alanis Morissette

There is evidence that the Rama empire (now India) was devastated by nuclear war. The Indus valley is now the Thar desert, and the site of the radioactive ash found west of Jodhpur is around there.

Consider these verses from the ancient (6500 BC at the latest) Mahabharata:

...a single projectile
Charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame
As bright as the thousand suns
Rose in all its splendour...
a perpendicular explosion
with its billowing smoke clouds...
...the cloud of smoke
rising after its first explosion
formed into expanding round circles
like the opening of giant parasols...

..it was an unknown weapon,
An iron thunderbolt,
A gigantic messenger of death,
Which reduced to ashes
The entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
...The corpses were so burned
As to be unrecognisable.
The hair and nails fell out;
Pottery broke without apparent cause,
And the birds turned white.

After a few hours
All foodstuffs were infected...
...to escape from this fire
The soldiers threw themselves in streams
To wash themselves and their equipment.

Until the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, modern mankind could not imagine any weapon as horrible and devastating as those described in the ancient Indian texts. Yet they very accurately described the effects of an atomic explosion. Radioactive poisoning will make hair and nails fall out. Immersing oneself in water gives some respite, though it is not a cure.

When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities, many holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. And these skeletons are thousands of years old, even by traditional archaeological standards. What could cause such a thing? Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals? Furthermore, there is no apparent cause of a physically violent death.

These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At one site, Soviet scholars found a skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal. Other cities have been found in northern India that show indications of explosions of great magnitude. One such city, found between the Ganges and the mountains of Rajmahal, seems to have been subjected to intense heat. Huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city are fused together, literally vitrified! And since there is no indication of a volcanic eruption at Mohenjo-Daro or at the other cities, the intense heat to melt clay vessels can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon. The cities were wiped out entirely.

While the skeletons have been carbon-dated to 2500 BC, we must keep in mind that carbon-dating involves measuring the amount of radiation left. When atomic explosions are involved, that makes then seem much younger.

Interestingly, Manhattan Project chief scientist Dr J. Robert Oppenheimer was known to be familiar with ancient Sanskrit literature. In an interview conducted after he watched the first atomic test, he quoted from the Bhagavad Gita: "'Now I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.' I suppose we all felt that way." When asked in an interview at Rochester University seven years after the Alamogordo nuclear test whether that was the first atomic bomb ever to be detonated, his reply was, "Well, yes, in modern history."

Ancient cities whose brick and stonewalls have literally been vitrified, that is, fused together, can be found in India, Ireland, Scotland, France, Turkey and other places. There is no logical explanation for the vitrification of stone forts and cities, except from an atomic blast.

Another curious sign of an ancient nuclear war in India is a giant crater near Bombay. The nearly circular 2,154-metre-diameter Lonar crater, located 400 kilometres northeast of Bombay and aged at less than 50,000 years old, could be related to nuclear warfare of antiquity. No trace of any meteoric material, etc., has been found at the site or in the vicinity, and this is the world's only known "impact" crater in basalt. Indications of great shock (from a pressure exceeding 600,000 atmospheres) and intense, abrupt heat (indicated by basalt glass spherules) can be ascertained from the site.



Osiris

Atlantis and Rama were not the only advanced civilizations in the world at that time. The Mediterranean was a large and fertile valley. This ancient civilization, pre-dating dynastic Egypt, was known as Osiris. The Nile river came out of Africa, as it does today, and was called the River Stix. However, instead of flowing into the Mediterranean Sea at the Nile Delta in northern Egypt, it continued into the valley, and then turned westward to flow in the deepest part of the Mediterranean Valley where it created a large lake and then flowed out between Malta and Sicily, and south of Sardinia into the Atlantic at Gibraltar (the Pillars of Hercules). When the sea level rose, it flooded the Mediterranean Basin, destroying the Osirians' great cities and forcing them to move to higher ground. This theory helps explain the strange megalithic remains found throughout the Mediterranean. It is an archaeological fact that there are more than 200 known sunken cities in the Mediterranean. That must be where the Pyramids came from.

Given that the ancients had nuclear capabilities, we know that they had the technology of 1945 at the earliest. Many things had to be discovered and invented before a nuclear explosion could take place. We do not know exactly what technology they had. However, since there are no people in space, we know they never colonized space, probably because they had no spacecraft. Even the wooden or plastic objects that weren't submerged would have disintegrated by now, so we have no idea what they had that was made out of those materials. But we do know that they used crystals. Aside from being used for clocks and radios, crystals can also be used to store information. A 1-cm cubic crystal could store 125 gigabytes, or as much as eight Pentium III processors. Maybe when we develop such technology (according to Moore's law, it will probably be by 2020), we will be able to access what they put on their crystal computers.

The Agastya Samhita, an ancient Indian text, gives directions on how to make a battery: "Place a well-cleaned copper plate in an earthenware vessel. Cover it first by copper sulfate and then moist sawdust. After that put a mercury-amalgamated-zinc sheet on top of an energy known by the twin name of Mitra-Varuna. Water will be split by this current into Pranavayu and Udanavayu. A chain of one hundred jars is said to give a very active and effective force." By the way, Mitra-Varuna is now called cathode-anode, and Pranavayu and Udanavayu are to us oxygen and hydrogen, respectively.

According to the Bible, anyone who touched the Ark of the Covenant, which contained the Ten commandments, would die. (Numbers 4:15) The only way touching an object can kill a person is if electricity is flowing through it.

You may want to include some of your own comments and ideas along with the link and summary...


A link and one paragraph would suffice... You should get together with Indigo Child as that member also has an affinity for this kind of thing, and may have some more links for you....


Don't mean to bust your chops on it...just that ordinarily, it'd be a "big quote" warning, but I can see you're still a little green, so letting it slide...

I could study the gita and the uphadisheds and then we could compare notes?

appreciate the link and summary, so what are you thoughts?

you believe it? or what?

and personally I like the Ramayan better than the Mahabarat.

Thanks for the link on the Mahabharata. You may want to take this discussion to my thread discussing this already in the Ancient Civilizations forum.

Worldwatcher, why do you like the Ramayana better than the Mahabharata? Less wars?

yep less fighting, more romance
a much more well rounded epic.
Plus I have an affinity towards Hanuman, as a kid, the monkey god was always my favorite. I also like the holiday Diwali which stems from the return of Ram to Adoydha after his exile.

don't get me wrong though, I enjoy the Mahabarat, the story of Draupadi was one of my favorites.

You too? He was my favorite too.

But I personally prefer Mahabharatha. The wars were pretty amazing to watch especially when you are that young.

I second the amazing monkey God. Even as kids, we all loved him. We even pretended to be him and run around fighting eachother.

lol

A very good thread indeed.

With all of of the advanced technology discovered to have happenend just a few thousand of years ago, it makes aperson wonder. These discoveries in comparision to the age of our earth is nothing. With this new thread I Hope that history "does reapeat itself". This may be a clue as why ET's are examining us to see how we have progressed thru "maybe" millions of years. We maybe just a science experiment about evolution for them.

"Thank you, India." --Alanis Morissette

That has to be THE stupiest evidence for ancient nuclear attacks in India!

Hey now, Alanis rules


Anyway, that was always one of my favorites too, I also loved everything concerning Vimana's, very very very interesting stuff...

The Aliens seem to meet up with ANYONE possesing nuclear strike capability, so they might be preventing us from having another nuclear war...

It does seem though their technology was significantly ahead of ours, don't forget our ancient brothers, the Nordics, once lived on our planet, or atleast that's what many speculate...they are now in Pleidas, Vega etc.

Great post!!!
