The story begins when a layer of radioactive ash was found in Rajasthan, India. It covered a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. The research occurred after a very high rate of birth defects and cancer was discovered in the area. The levels of radiation registered so high on investigators’ gauges that the Indian government cordoned off the region. Scientists then apparently unearthed an ancient city where they found evidence of an atomic blast dating back thousands of years: from 8,000 to 12,000 years.
The blast was said to have destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people.

Well now, that's interesting. However, I have to say that the radiation found could have been due to natural reasons (an astrological impact of some kind) and not nuclear war.

I'd have to log in to view the article., and I'd rather not have to.
There are a number of thread with a similar vide, and the last time this came up, it was for dig site that's still on going, with no traces of radioactivty.

I have heard of this as well. If i recall correctly, one of the 'explanations" for the sinking/destruction/what have you of the lost city of Atlantis or Atlantia. Very fasciniating considering some of the environmental evidence that back it up. Cool find

I'm so glad you posted this. I think you will find more than you ever dreamed, and here's why:

Studying copies of ancient texts, as many of us here at ATS have, it's inevitable that sooner or later one comes across references to what sounds like a nuclear war, or at least the detonation of a nuclear device.

Here's some keywords to get you going, Enoch, Ezra, early genealogy of the sons of Noah and their descendants. Of course you will come across the Enki information as well. Remember that names are changed from culture to culture, and I bet you'll find a trove of information that will have you questioning the "mythical" aspects of the Bible.

I did an exegesis of the first several lines of Genesis, looking up science to back it up, but not from any religious site. I found more than I bargained for, and have more respect for the Bible than ever. Careful reading shows extremely important details in the order of the writing that prove its validity.

Enjoy your journey and please, keep us updated.

It's a story that began in the early 70s. It's been spread around by the Cremos, Danikens and many others. It's all BS. No, there's no proof that anyone in the distant past were involved in nuclear war. They could fashion a pretty sharp stone and throw it at stuff...

I have to disagree on this thought. It appears to have hit a village or city. It claims around 500,000 could have died.

How many cities do we know of that existed back then. Even if there were a lot, lets say 10% of what exist today, the odds of an astrological event striking a city is very small. While yes, those have been shown to create radiation areas like what was found, I just can't see this being a natural occurrence.

This well could be very significant, that undoubtedly will be ignored or laughed at by the MSM and TPTB.

I believe that we were way advanced as a species back thousands of years ago. The more probable explanation for this occurance would be a meteor blast though.

Well several Hindu texts (the Rig Veda, Mahabharata, et al) talk about great wars. Several of the gods flew in a variety of vimana (flying craft) and used many different kinds of weapons.
One of the weapons is described as a projectile with the power of the Universe. It produced the light "of a thousand suns" and a huge column of smoke. Those on the outlying areas of the blast had their hair and nails fall out and other symptoms of radiation poisoning.

Check out this link for weirdly familiar descriptions from thousands of years ago....

And that's exactly my point. TPTB will ensure we are told anyone who believes there was any type of advanced civilization on this planet in the past is seen as a lunatic, or the ideas as pure fantasy or just an outright lie.

Here is some articles you might find intresting..

MsNbc

Ancient nuclear reactors buried in lake and shallow ocean sediments may have cooked early microbes, according to a new study. And radiation from the deposits could have delayed the onset of our modern-day, oxygen-rich atmosphere, and even had a hand in shaping the genetics of primordial life.

Natural nuclear reactors dating to 2 billion years ago have been found in Gabon, Africa. Though long since exhausted, scientists know from the unusually low quantity of the Uranium-235 isotope in the rock that they once went critical, and hosted a sustained fission reaction that went on for as long as two hundred thousand years.

A billion years earlier, such deposits could have been common, say Laurence Coogan and Jay Cullen of the University of Victoria. The first oxygen-producing bacteria colonized lakes and shallow seas, and likely created oxygen 'oases' in an otherwise nitrogen-dominated world.


And this goes into ancient Nukes..A good read unless you are locked into the MSM Matrix.
Enki Speaks

GODS NUKE SINAI SPACEPORT BEFORE LEAVING EARTH TO MARDUK

Marduk proclaimed to the senior Anunnaki gods, "In my temple house let all the gods assemble, my covenant accept....By his appeal for their submission, the Anunnaki gods were disturbed and alarmed.

To a great assembly, council to take, Enlil them all summoned. Opposed to Marduk and Nabu they all were."


And...
Well, here I was supposed to link to an article about some caves in Africa that were made to make enriched plutonium , which scientists claimed to be an naturall event.. But I cant find it...

I'm very interested in these stories from India ... but the only linked article is to a site you have to sign up for just to view. I think these kinds of articles/sites should be banned from posting as sources simply because it could be a way to attract more members to another site.

If someone who does have access to this site could post a transcript of the article that would be great, I would love to read what it has to say.

Yes, sorry. I should have pointed that out. I'm going through some of the links provided below, but I meant as an opening post the information included form external text should not be something you have to sign up for to view.

Forget the nuclear war and alien fighting alien with earth people in the way.

One thing I read years ago was about an ancient river that ran year round with great floods. Not the Nile, but Saraswati. If you want some great history, check into this.

But here is the interesting part never really mentioned by pre-civilization classes. First is the time line which has been proven to date back 10,000 years for this river to be flowing water. Second is the written accounts of this river flowing water. See the problem for modern historians who push Sumerian and Mesopotamia's culture as earliest civilizations.

This part of India had another 4,000 year head start just in written history.

Ancient India's history is interesting with much left to be discovered and brought into modern time lines with revisions of current thinking. It will take time for accurate and proven revisions to take place.

In May 1972 a worker at a nuclear fuel–processing plant in France noticed something suspicious. He had been conducting a routine analysis of uranium derived from a seemingly ordinary source of ore. As is the case with all natural uranium, the material under study contained three isotopes— that is to say, three forms with differing atomic masses: uranium 238, the most abundant variety; uranium 234, the rarest; and uranium 235, the isotope that is coveted because it can sustain a nuclear chain reaction. Elsewhere in the earth’s crust, on the moon and even in meteorites, uranium 235 atoms make up 0.720 percent of the total. But in these samples, which came from the Oklo deposit in Gabon (a former French colony in west equatorial Africa), uranium 235 constituted just 0.717 percent. That tiny discrepancy was enough to alert French scientists that something strange had happened. Further analysis showed that ore from at least one part of the mine was far short on uranium 235: some 200 kilograms appeared to be missing— enough to make half a dozen or so nuclear bombs.


It seems this sort of thing is a natural occurring anomaly that could have been used in some way.

Not being able to view the article, I'd like to at least get the names of these supposed cities.
The last time this came up, two of the supposed irradiated cities were active, while the final one was a active archaeological dig. One of the cities was a tourist destination.

Here is the rest of the article. From the same source.




For weeks, specialists at the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) remained perplexed. The answer came only when someone recalled a prediction published 19 years earlier. In 1953 George W. Wetherill of the University of California at Los Angeles and Mark G. Inghram of the University of Chicago pointed out that some uranium deposits might have once operated as natural versions of the nuclear fission reactors that were then becoming popular. Shortly thereafter, Paul K. Kuroda, a chemist from the University of Arkansas, calculated what it would take for a uraniumore body spontaneously to undergo selfsustained fission. In this process, a stray neutron causes a uranium 235 nucleus to split, which gives off more neutrons, causing others of these atoms to break apart in a nuclear chain reaction. Kuroda’s first condition was that the size of the uranium deposit should exceed the average length that fission-inducing neutrons travel, about two thirds of a meter. This requirement helps to ensure that the neutrons given off by one fissioning nucleus are absorbed by another before escaping from the uranium vein. A second prerequisite is that uranium 235 must be present in sufficient abundance. Today even the most massive and concentrated uranium deposit cannot become a nuclear reactor, because the uranium 235 concentration, at less than 1 percent, is just too low. But this isotope is radioactive and decays about six times faster than does uranium 238, which indicates that the fissile fraction was much higher in the distant past. For example, two billion years ago (about when the Oklo deposit formed) uranium 235 must have constituted approximately 3 percent, which is roughly the level provided artificially in the enriched uranium used to fuel most nuclear power stations. The third important ingredient is a neutron “moderator,” a substance that can slow the neutrons given off when a uranium nucleus splits so that they are more apt to induce other uranium nuclei to break apart. Finally, there should be no significant amounts of boron, lithium or other so-called poisons, which absorb neutrons and would thus bring any nuclear reaction to a swift halt. Amazingly, the actual conditions that prevailed two billion years ago in what researchers eventually determined to be 16 separate areas within the Oklo and adjacent Okelobondo uranium mines were very close to what Kuroda outlined. These zones were all identified decades ago. But only recently did my colleagues and I finally clarify major details of what exactly went on inside one of those ancient reactors.
