You should also read "The Golden Bough" Frazer 1890, its a study of comparative religion and mythology.
And there is avery good paper by W. Masse on the link between mythology and extreme natural events such as volcanos and celestial impact events or comets.

All I will say is, we weren't around so we don't know and we cannot say for definite. 200 million years from now, the Earth will still be here [I hope] and the peoples of that time will probably be speculating on ancient civilizations that once existed before theirs.
Of course, our technology and methods of architecture will have long since eroded away and become part of the dust once more. The Pyramids will probably still be standing.

If there was a nuclear war on that scale 130 million years ago would we be not be able to detect it in a geological layer? A layer of radioactive elements or at least a darkened sooty layer of ash such as with some asteroid impacts? This is a genuine question not a masked statement, I don't know for sure.
Scientists say that we began what is called the Anthropocene Epoch/Era/Period in about 1950 due to the marked and detectable global scattering of radioactive elements since we began testing nuclear bombs (and also to a lesser extent our increased use of plastic).
