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?
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.
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.
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.”
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.
With the apparent discovery of this radiated area, parallels were quick drawn to the Mahabharata, the Indian epic.
... (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.
“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?”
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 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.
There should also not be a rush to judgment: the case for ancient warfare in India is currently better than any contradictory 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”.

WONDERS OF INDUS VALLEY CITIES
Melted RemainsIn 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!
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” DiscoveredOn 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.
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:
The brightness of the blast
the column of rising smoke and fire
intense shockwaves and heatwaves
the appearance of the victims
the effects of radiation poisoning
The historical text states:
An iron thunderbolt contained ‘the power of the universe."
"An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor."
"Clouds roared upward."
"Blood-colored clouds swept down onto the earth."
"Fierce winds began to blow." Elephant's miles away were knocked off their feet.
"The earth shook, scorched by the terrible violent heat of this weapon.
"Corpses were so burnt that they were no longer recognizable."
"Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause. Birds were turned white. After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected."
‘Thousands of war vehicles fell down on all sides . . . thousands of corpses burnt to ashes."
‘Never before have we seen such an awful weapon, and never before have we heard of such a weapon."
The war zone: the upper regions of the Ganges.
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.
The photo spiesAnd 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.
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!
