Let me post in here more sources as to these "non-existant sacred books" as some people say.
The ancients did not have the same words to describe the things they used. For example a rifle, it is mentioned as
"Armed with machines vomiting from their throats (mouths?) iron balls and bullets..."
Excerpt taken from the non-existant sacred book. (once people become sarcastic and insulting i do the same)
Lets hear it from those people who can still read Sankskrit and who are from india. In one of my previous post, which some people don't seem to have
looked at, another Hindu acknowledges that there are weapons that were used to destroy entire races and nations and that seemed to be atomic weapons.
This link is to the question posted by a member of the email list asking Sanskrit scholars if is true that the ancient Vedic texts mention atomic
weapons in the past.
This link is to the response.
Here is another email which, for copyright reasons "I can't copy and paste" so if you want to discuss these nonexistant texts, read what some of
these people, "who can read Sanskrit and are Indians" have to say.
"Mahabharata The Great War and World History"
""In the Mahabharata, the war seemed to have affected the whole world. We don’t find so many references to such of a huge event in other cultures.
Why are there no references to a great world event?"
The destruction caused by the war was not only external. The destruction of the war was also in the minds of the people. After those heavy astras were
used, in the minds of the people anything subtle, anything delicate, anything perfectional was completely burnt out. It is just like in Hiroshima and
Nagasaki, till today you find the children are disabled. How many years has it been? It was only two primitive bombs. They were so gross and physical,
but the radioactivity of that is still being seen today.
Then we can understand, according to the descriptions within the Mahabharata, what was the destruction of the Brahmastras used in the war. What was
the Agni-astras they were using? What was the power of the wind in the Vayu-astra? It was not only blowing in Kurukshetra, it was blowing all over the
planet. What would have happened to the people’s minds because of the diffusion of all these energies?
Everything became lost. Naturally people would not even be able to think that they were serving, or they had been paying tax to the Aryan kings of
such and such countries. The whole thing had no meaning any more.
This is known as the "dark period" after the Mahabharata war. Kathacharit-sagara has stories about this dark time. In the Tamil literature also it
discusses this period. There was a dark period in between where no one knew what happened. Only the thieves, either through ship or through land, were
ruling the world. In Tamil it is known as "kalapirar kalam" which means the time of the unknown kings, unknown rulers. The Tamil literature gives
3,000 years for it."

Here is a small compilation of events as they happen according to the Ramayana.
"In Aranya-Kanda, Viradha, a giant, attacks Rama and Lakshmana in the Dandaka forest. Rama kills him. Thereafter, they pay a visit to the Rishis
Sarabhanga, Sutikshna, and Atri. Anasuya, wife of Atri, gives an inspiring discourse on the duties of a wife to Sita. Then they meet Rishi Agastya.
Rama receives celestial weapons from him.
They encounter the giantess Surpanakha in the Panchavati forest. She is disfigured by Lakshmana. Lakshmana cuts her nose and ears. Khara and Trisiras
(along with fourteen thousand giants), brothers of Surpanakha, are very much enraged. They fight against Rama. They are slain in the battle."
------(In the below part it is said that a bridge was built accross the ocean, and Space images taken by NASA reveal a mysterious ancient bridge in
the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka. The bridge currently named as Adam´s Bridge is made of chain of shoals, c.18 mi (30 km) long.
Links to this story.
In the next link, scroll down until you see the image of Adam's bridge. The bridge connects Sri Lanka with the Indian mainland.
"In Yuddha-Kanda, Nala (one of the monkey-chiefs) builds a bridge across the ocean by the advice of the ocean. The heroes with a large army of
monkeys cross the ocean and reach Lanka. Vibhishana (brother of Ravana) joins them and tells them how to destroy Ravana and his army. Kumbhakarna,
Indrajit, and Ravana are killed in battle. During the battle, both the parties of Rama and Ravana use Astras or weapons charged with Mantras. Rama
sends an Astra on Ravana's' party. All Rakshasas appear as Rama. They kill one another. Ravana discharges on Rama, Nagastra (arrow that becomes
serpents full of poison). The arrows have their mouths like serpents and vomit forth fire all around. The Rama discharges Garudastra. The arrows
becomes Garudas and cut off the serpent arrows on all sides. Garudas are the enemies of serpents. Rama uses Brahmastra to kill Ravana. Sita is
rescued. Sita's honour is tested in the fire. She comes out more glorious and effulgent than ever. Vibhishana is then crowned as king in Lanka. Sri
Rama with his party returns to Ayodhya in the flying car called Pushpaka."
