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.

Wonderful thread sir. Very well done and explained. In my opinion we are not the first civilization to reach technological prowess. I thoroughly believe that every several thousand years we reach a pinnacle in technology then our avarice destroys us all.
Call me silly if you may but there are times I truly wonder whether or not we are just making the exact same mistakes as human beings in our choices and our apparent inability to leave radioactive material alone.
S and F to you sir.
[/quote Agreed . we keep repeating same stuff over and over again as it is all stored in our genetic code or memory . Seems hard to break the cycle . i say too that there are a certain amount of genetic templates that are used for bodies , thus similar looking people to you are elsewhere on the planet
Its like they cant afford anymore . Maybe they are also cost cutting since they also are existing in the down cycle
Today we run reactors by taking uranium and enriching it in the one isotope, U-235, that fissions the most so that an energy-producing chain reaction can take place.
Without enrichment, you can pile up tons of uranium and it won't make any heat. Nevertheless, in 1972 the remains of a natural, spontaneously formed uranium reactor were found in ancient rocks of the African nation of Gabon, in the Oklo uranium mine.
What made such a thing possible was that in the distant past uranium was naturally enriched in U-235, that is, less of it had decayed away by nuclear fission. About 1.7 billion years ago, to be more precise, a natural deposit of uranium ore was radioactive enough to generate about 100 kilowatts of heat, off and on, for more than a million years.
It is worth spending a little time speaking of the Vaimanika Shastra. This is a document which supposedly discusses the vimanas' construction. It is a channeled document from the early 20th Century. Nobody claims there is an earlier version. So, it is not a hoax. But it is difficult to assess well.

If nuclear war decimated the earth today, and civilization was brought to it's knees technologically, within a relatively short time frame there would be little left to prove what we once were. Within a few thousand years, there would be no metal structures or vehicles, no wooden structures...no roads or cities. ( We have no idea how long plastic takes to return to the earth). If in 5000 years man again became advanced, they would nary believe the tales of our achievements

Im not a weapon expert but i heard about a bomb that destroys only organic life and leaves other material harmless ( neutron bomb? - im not sure )
What if there was a weapon that destroyed only their metals and electronic (?) equipment. Like the nanobugs in the movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still".
