The Aryans Did Not Do It 2: Nuclear Harappa

This is the allegation which we are examining. The available data according to the allegation follows on this blog entry

Are the Indian remains of Mohenjo Daro and Harappa, their sudden abandonment and the apparent discovery of an ancient site with a layer of radioactive ash the best available evidence for the possibility that our ancient ancestors possessed a highly advanced technology – which might have included atomic warfare?

 
Did an ancient advanced civilization exist on Earth?
 
The question is very intriguing and the search for “evidence” to support a positive answer has intrigued Mankind for many decades – if not centuries. Many possibilities have been put forward, from outright statements that Atlantis was a high tech civilization, to the possibility that the Nazca lines might be a prehistoric airport.

Rather than an accumulation of various items of evidence that is then subjected to the possibility that it might be either alien or advanced, it is more scientific – and perhaps better- to focus on the quest for the “best evidence”: a single piece of evidence that in itself is the best example to support a conclusion.
 
In the search for an advanced ancient civilization, what would be this “best evidence”?

One possible item that would classify as “best evidence” exists within the Indus River Valley, where towns such as Harappa and Mohenjo Daro flourished in 3000 BC. The question is why these cities were abandoned. And one answer that has been put forward is that the ancient cities might have been irradiated by an atomic blast.
 
If true, it would be impossible to ignore the conclusion that ancient civilization possessed high technology.
 
The ruins of Harappa
 
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.

Archeologist Francis Taylor stated that etchings in some nearby temples he translated suggested that they prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city.
“It’s so mind-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.”
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.
 
A. Gorbovsky, in Riddles of Ancient History, reported the discovery of at least one human skeleton in this area with a level of radioactivity approximately 50 times greater than it should have been due to natural radiation.
 
Furthermore, thousands of fused lumps, christened “black stones”, have been found at Mohenjo-Daro. These appear to be fragments of clay vessels that melted together in extreme heat.

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 (left image), located 400 kilometers 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.

With the apparent discovery of this radiated area, parallels were quick drawn to the Mahabharata, the Indian epic.
 
It reads:
... (it was) 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 splendor...

...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 unrecognizable.
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.
Whereas the story of the Mahabharata is indirect evidence, the other discoveries in India pose serious problems for those trying to deny the possibility that this might indeed be evidence of ancient atomic warfare.
 
Whereas believing in the existence of Atlantis or a highly advanced civilization that might not have left any trace is one thing, to suggest that our ancestors might have wiped themselves out along the same lines we almost did, but only fifty years ago, is a major paradigm shift.
 
Some skeptics thus stated:
“I am sick and tired of hearing this, and I cannot find any debunks of this either. Anyone who can debunk this, or is this really true?”
That is indeed the question… and an important one. The stakes are high, as one would expect when facing with the best evidence.
 
Lonar crater
 
So, let us discover what might be the best evidence.
 
The first question is whether a Francis Taylor existed. There is a Francis Taylor, an American museum director, who died in 1957. He was not an archaeologist. There is a “Francisco Taylor”, but he is not the above quoted Francis Taylor.

Not a good start. Skeptics have also wondered whether the ancient atomic warfare is not a modern invention, to deflect attention from a serious – modern – atomic contamination. In 1998, it was reported that an Indian power stations had some major problems. One had an incident in which 2000 workers became exposed to excess radiation, 300 of which had to be hospitalized.

Surendra Gadekar also investigated the conditions of villagers at Rawatbhatta in Rajasthan and discovered gross radiation-related deformities.
 
We note that Rawatbhatta is in the same region as the discovery of the “ancient warfare” site. But Gadekar did not find evidence of ancient warfare, but evidence of modern negligence: wood that had been used in the power plant, had then “somehow” made his way into society, where it was subsequently used as wood for a fire.
 
This in itself was a minor incident, but could there have been more serious incidents, whereby it was decided to deflect attention from the present to the ancient past?

We thus find that there no newspapers carried the story of the discovery. The Indian archaeological authorities are not aware of the story. And there is a government laboratory in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
 
Might something have gone wrong in the latter?
 
The nuclear facility at Rawatbhatta
 
With the above objections, the case for the best evidence has become more controversial than a clean-cut case.
 
But in a case such as an ancient high tech civilization, this should not come as a surprise. Rome was not built in one day, and arguing for or against the case of an ancient highly advanced civilization will not take any less time.

There should also not be a rush to judgment: the case for ancient warfare in India is currently better than any contradictory evidence.
 
The bodies of Harappa and Mohenjo Daro remain a mystery, whether or not the other radioactive site turns out to be modern or ancient. The anomalous crater adds power to the possibility. Finally, the fact that all these enigmas are within one general region (as opposed to scattered across the world) adds further weight to the case… but then this should be expected if we might consider this case to be the best evidence.

The problem of the “best evidence” is often that it sounds too good to be true. That is either because it is, or because it is indeed the “best evidence”.
 
And only careful analysis of the evidence will reveal what it is…

Ancient Indus River Valley Civilizations

ANCIENT CITY FOUND,  IRRADIATED FROM
ATOMIC BLAST

What bizarre secrets are we still to uncover?




WONDERS OF INDUS VALLEY CITIES
You probably know something of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. The remains of these ancient cities are in modern day Pakistan. These were the key centers of the Indus Valley civilization. These also appear to have suddenly sprung up with no clear-cut traces of having evolved from primitive beginnings.
 
The ruins of these ancient Indus Valley cities are immense. They are thought to have contained well over a million people each.
 
You’d be surprised at what’s been dug up here.
 
In place was a system of town planning with straight streets and rectangular blocks,
as well as wide main streets like modern boulevards. There were also heated public baths.
 
At Mohenjo-Daro there has been uncovered a network of canals, pipes and sewers, with inspection peepholes, ingeniously devised. This city enjoyed an efficient drainage system and a highly efficient piped water supply, with pipes and drains under every street. And there was a sewage system from each house, as good as that of the present day.
 
Jewels, rings, bracelets and necklaces of gold, silver and ivory, were worn. They were kept in elegant silver caskets and so well finished and so highly polished that they might have come out of a Bond Street jeweller’s.
 
Business transactions were recorded and statistics kept.
 
                   From a High Start, They Went Down
 
Here is some surprising news for you.
 
The lowest strata of the remains of Mohenjo-Daro show a more developed art than the upper layers. Later the quality of the commercial seals fell off sadly. The soapstone was replaced by common clay; and crude geometric shapes replaced the lifelike engravings.
 
Highly glazed ceramics were supplanted by plain clumsy pots. The city’s systematic plan gave way to shabby structures and mere hovels at the topmost stratum.
 
From a high early peak of technology, this civilization then progressed no further. Everything was done in imitation of the old techniques. Even the bricks were inferior.
 
I’m going to let you in on a nifty little inside secret.
 
                                 Radioactive Skeletons
 
The ruins of the ancient cities of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa are extremely radioactive.
 
Practically nothing is known of their histories, except that both were destroyed suddenly. In Mohenjo-Daro, in an epicentre 150 feet wide, everything was crystallised, fused or melted; 180 feet from the center the bricks are melted on one side, indicating a blast.
 
Excavations down to the street level revealed 44 scattered skeletons, as if doom had come so suddenly they could not get to their houses. All the skeletons were flattened to the ground. A father, mother and child were found flattened in the street, face down and still holding hands.
 
It has been claimed that the skeletons, after thousands of years, are still among the most radioactive that have ever been found, on a par with those of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
 
But here’s something else to shock you…
 

Melted Remains

In the forest areas between the Indian mountains of Rajmahal and the Ganges, the explorer De Camp came upon unknown charred ruins. A number of huge masses appeared fused together and hollowed at various points "like lumps of tin struck by a stream of molten steel." The result could not be due to ordinary fire, however violent.
Further south, the British official J. Campbell stumbled upon similar ruins, with a half-vitrified courtyard, produced by an unknown agent.
Similar reports have come from other travelers in the jungle areas, reports of ruined buildings with walls ‘like thick slabs of crystal," likewise holed, split and corroded by some mysterious force.
Let me take a moment to tell you what another explorer has found…

The man who turned to “glass”

The explorer-hunter H. J. Hamilton received a substantial shock when he entered a low-domed building. He recalls that:
“Suddenly the ground gave way under my feet with a curious noise. I got into a safe place and then widened the hole, which had appeared, with my rifle-butt and lowered myself into it. I was in a long and narrow corridor, which got its light from the space where the dome had split. At the bottom I saw a kind of table and chair, made of the same "crystal" as the walls.
“An odd shape was crouching on the seat, with vaguely human features.
“Looking at it from close by, I thought it might be a statue damaged in the course of time but then I glanced at something which filled me with horror: under the ‘glass" which covered that ‘statue’ a skeleton could clearly be seen!”
Walls, furniture, people—melted, then crystallized. No natural burning flame or volcanic eruption could have produced a heat intense enough to cause this phenomenon.
Do you know what? Only the heat released through something like atomic energy could have done this damage.
Advanced weaponry in ancient times? It’s more startling than fiction!
That’s right… technology. And you’ll discover more in Dead Men’s Secrets, an astonishing report crammed with lost secrets of the ancient world.
I know what you’re thinking now. You’re probably going to ask:
                    But Where Are The Records Of Such Things?
And that’s a fair question, I agree.
Well, you will be blown away at the evidence I’ve put together for you.
 
 

  Bizarre “Time Capsule” Discovered

On this point—and the significance of this is absolutely world-shaking—researchers have recently unlocked what we could call a time capsule, a number of documents "buried" in incomprehensible terms until our day.
When translated last century, they were not understood. Nor could they be until modern knowledge "caught up" with former knowledge and was able to recognize it.
These very ancient documents contain what is now startlingly familiar language. Their contents are quite alarming.
Was There Really Nuclear War In The Past?
Here are eyewitness reports that raise the compelling question: Did nuclear war wipe out large sections of the civilized world in the third millennium BC?
Let me share with you what’s in an ancient Indian text, the Mahabharata. This document of 200 verses was translated completely by 1884.
Although it dates in its present form to 500 BC, textual evidence indicates that it refers to events that occurred 1500 to 2500 BC.
 The chief translator (decades before the appearance of aircraft, war gases, rockets and nuclear bombs), commented that much in the book would to the purely English reader seem “ridiculous”.
This ancient document recounts in detail how aircraft were used to launch a weapon that devastated three cities. The record is unnervingly similar to an eyewitness report of an atomic bomb explosion. It describes:
Ø
The brightness of the blast
Ø
the column of rising smoke and fire
Ø
the fallout
Ø
intense shockwaves and heatwaves
Ø
the appearance of the victims
Ø
the effects of radiation poisoning

The historical text states:

Ø
An iron thunderbolt contained ‘the power of the universe."
Ø
"An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor."
Ø
"Clouds roared upward."
Ø
"Blood-colored clouds swept down onto the earth."
Ø
"Fierce winds began to blow." Elephant's miles away were knocked off their feet.
Ø
"The earth shook, scorched by the terrible violent heat of this weapon.
Ø
"Corpses were so burnt that they were no longer recognizable."
Ø
"Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause. Birds were turned white. After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected."
Ø
‘Thousands of war vehicles fell down on all sides . . . thousands of corpses burnt to ashes."
Ø
‘Never before have we seen such an awful weapon, and never before have we heard of such a weapon."
Ø
The war zone: the upper regions of the Ganges.
As you can see, passages from this ancient Sanskrit text, the Mahabharata are a nerve chiller. The cold terror of the survivors still lives in its pages.
Until we started to experiment with radioactive substances, no person on earth could have described radiation sickness, for the simple reason that such a disease did not exist.
Yet radiation sickness, in clinical detail, is described: the hair loss, vomiting, weakness and eventual death—classic symptoms of radiation poisoning.
More significantly, it states that one could save himself by removing all metal from his person and immersing himself in the water of rivers. The reason can only be in order to wash away contaminated particles—the exact procedure followed today.

                                 The photo spies

And I’d like to ask you one more question. Could photographic and listening devices have been known and used in the very distant past? An outrageous suggestion, you will probably say.
Well, let me introduce you to some Indian records dating to the second millennium BC, and considered to be copies of still older documents. Whereas the writings of most other nations suffered wilful destruction, these have by some miracle survived.

   

                            This Will Amaze You…

Would you be surprised if I told you that some carefully preserved Indian records  which are thousands of years old contain a mass of “modern” scientific knowledge?  So modern that much of it was considered absurd when translated last century?
Our science is today catching up with many of the concepts expressed in these documents.
Scientists in many countries are now studying a remarkable translation made by Maharshi Bharadwaja, called Aeronautics, described as A Manuscript from the Pre-historic Past. It contains fascinating, almost incredible data. This translation has been published by the International Academy of Sanskrit Research in Mysore, India. Its table of contents includes:
The secret of constructing aeroplanes, which will not break, which cannot be cut, will not catch fire, and cannot be destroyed; the secret of making planes motionless; the secret of hearing conversations and other sounds in enemy planes; the secret of receiving photographs of the interior of enemy planes, and more.
Are you shocked? Are you in disbelief? Don’t be, because it’s absolutely true.
Take merely the photographic and audio references in this ancient document. Impossible questions arise, unless we are prepared to understand that there must have been a higher culture or an equally perfect technology before our own.
Many isolated clues from around the world—inconsequential in themselves, but cumulatively meaningful—show that everyday items familiar to us were known and used throughout the "prehistoric" world.
Significantly, these are found in the ruins of inferior civilizations—after the superior technology had vanished. They are suggestive of what must have preceded them.
If you’re like me, when you first hear about something like this you probably think it must be some hoax. Actually, these writings are totally genuine. And I shall share with not just writings – but PHYSICAL REMAINS!

History’s lost lesson: Ancient nuclear war among Indus Valley civilizations reexamined

Posted on by                 

July 20, 2011INDIAIs man on the threshold of a new world or merely stuck on a circular treadmill repeating the doomed lessons from history which he never seems to learn? A growing number of scholars believe the world’s macabre fascination with nuclear war is just the latest repeat in a series of blunders human technology seems obsessed with repeating. Ancient tales speak of flying vimanas. Vimanas were real vehicles and the origin of the ‘Aeroplanes.’ Great wars were described in early religious texts. Weapons could literally level the land like a moving force field. In ancient India, we find words for certain measurements of length; one was the distance of light-years and one was the length of an atom. Only a society that possessed nuclear energy would have the need for such words. When Oppenheimer said ‘I am become the destroyer of worlds,’ he was quoting from these ancient books. Believe it or not, the deserts on a number of continents today are the result of (prehistoric) nuclear warfare. 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.
          
  Consider these verses from the ancient 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 unrecognizable. 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. Excavations down to the street level revealed 44 scattered skeletons, as if doom had come so suddenly they could not get to their houses. All the skeletons were flattened to the ground. A father, mother and child were found flattened in the street, face down and still holding hands. 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.
 
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. 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. Another curious sign of an ancient nuclear war in India is a giant crater near Bombay (above). The nearly circular 2,154-metre-diameter Lonar crater, located 400 kilometres northeast of Mumbai 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. -Ajithkuma
