The Aryans Did Not Do It 4

Mohenjo Daro Masacre

The Mohenjo Daro ‘Massacre’

In the 1920s, the discovery of ancient cities at Mohenjo Daro and Harappa in Pakistan gave the first clue to the existence more than 4,000 years ago of a civilization in the Indus Valley to rival those known in Egypt and Mesopotamia. These cities demonstrated an exceptional level of civic planning and amenities. The houses were furnished with brick-built bathrooms and many had toilets. Wastewater from these was led into well-built brick sewers that ran along the centre of the streets, covered with bricks or stone slabs. Cisterns and wells finely constructed of wedge-shaped bricks held public supplies of drinking water. Mohenjo Daro also boasted a Great Bath on the high mound (citadel) overlooking the residential area of the city. Built of layers of carefully fitted bricks, gypsum mortar and waterproof bitumen, this basin is generally thought to have been used for ritual purification.
However, in contrast to the well-appointed houses and clean streets, the uppermost levels at Mohenjo Daro contained squalid makeshift dwellings, a careless intermingling of residential and industrial activity and, most significantly, a series of more than 40 sprawled skeletons lying scattered in streets and houses.  Paul Bahn (2002) describes the scene:
In a room with a public well in one area of the city were found the skeletons of two individuals who appeared desperately to have been using their last scraps of energy to crawl up the stair leading from the room to the street; the tumbled remains of two others lay nearby. Elsewhere in the area the ‘strangely contorted’ and incomplete remains of nine individuals were found, possibly thrown into a rough pit. In a lane between two houses in another area, another six skeletons were loosely covered with earth.
Numerous other skeletons were found within layers of rubble, ash and debris, or lying in streets in contorted positions that suggested the agonies of violent death.
A Violent Massacre
The remains of these individuals led many archaeologists at the time to conclude that these people all died by violence. Sir Mortimer Wheeler, who excavated at Mohenjo Daro in 1950s, believed they were victims of a single massacre and suggested that the Indus civilization, whose demise was unexplained, had fallen to an armed invasion by Indo-Aryans, nomadic newcomers from the northwest, who are thought to have settled in India during the second millennium BC.  Wheeler claimed the remains belonged to individuals who were defining the city in its final hours. He was so convincing that this theory became the accepted version of the fate of the Indus civilization.
However, many of his claims simply did not add up. There was no evidence that the skeletons belonged to ‘defenders of the city’ as no weapons were found and the skeletons contained no evidence of violent injuries.   Some archaeologists suggested that the influx of Indo-Aryan people occurred after the decline of the Indus civilization while others questioned whether an Indo-Aryan invasion of the subcontinent even took place at all.
Flood and Disease
An alternative theory was put forward that the city suffered extensive flooding and that people died off as a result of water-borne diseases such as cholera.  Recent investigations revealed considerable evidence of flooding at Mohenjo Daro in the form of many layers of silty clay. The Indus River was prone to change its course and through the centuries moved gradually eastward, leading periodically to flooding within the bounds of the city. Indeed, the massive brick platforms on which the city is constructed and the fortifications around parts of it seemed to have been designed to provide protection against such floods.  Conditions would have been ideal for the spread of water-borne diseases, especially cholera, although cholera epidemics cannot be proved to have occurred.
The conclusion that many mainstream archaeologists now make is that the ‘massacre’ victims from Mohenjo Daro were simply the victims of the natural tragedy of fatal disease rather than that of human aggression.  But this conclusion also has many holes – why did the remains of individuals appear in contorted positions, almost frozen at the very moment of death? Why did they appear to have been struck down suddenly? Surely if they died of disease their bodies would have been buried and not found scattered around the city?
Evidence of Atomic War?
There exist a growing number of ‘alternative archaeologists’ and researchers who have not settled for theories that do not satisfactorily explain the conditions of the skeletal remains and who have sought other explanations.  One such individual is David Davenport, British Indian researcher, who spent 12 years studying ancient Hindu scripts and evidence at the site where the great city once stood. In his bookAtomic Destruction in 2000 B.C. he reveals some startling findings: the objects found at the site appeared to be fused, glassified by a heat as high as 1500°C, followed by a sudden cooling. Within the city itself there appeared to be an ‘epicentre’ about 50 yards wide within which everything was crystallized, fused or melted, and sixty yards from the center the bricks are melted on one side indicating a blast.  A. Gorbovsky in his book Riddles of Ancient History, reported the discovery of at least one human skeleton in the area with a level of radioactivity approximately 50 times greater than it should have been due to natural radiation. Davenport claimed that what was found at Mohenjo Daro corresponded exactly to what was seen at Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
Davenport's theory was met with intense interest from the scientific community. Nationally known expert William Sturm said: “the melting of bricks at Mohenjo Daro could not have been caused by a normal fire”, while Professor Antonio Castellani, a space engineer in Rome said: “it's possible that what happened at Mohenjo Daro was not a natural phenomenon”.
Since there is no indication of a volcanic eruption at Mohenjo-Daro, one answer that has been put forward is that the ancient city might have been irradiated by an atomic blast.  If true, it would be impossible to ignore the conclusion that ancient civilization possessed high technology.
Parallels were quickly drawn to the Mahabharata, the Indian epic, which indeed speak of doom and destruction. 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.
The description is unnervingly similar to the effects of an atomic bomb explosion – an incredibly bright blast, a column of rising smoke and fire, fallout, intense shockwaves and heatwaves, and the effects of radiation poisoning.
If Mohanjo Daro was destroyed by a nuclear catastrophe, who created the weapons and how? If not, then what was it that produced enough heat to vitrify rock and bricks? What could explain the high degree of radioactive traces in the skeletons? How did all of them die, in one instant? We believe it is time to stop accepting the sanitized view of the world provided to us by mainstream science and to begin digging a little deeper.

  1. There's another option to nuclear bombs. Robert Felix has a theory that the reversals of Earths magnetic trigger large fireballs. The same fireballs being the reason for the
    Carolina Bays, the black mattes and the extinctions at the end of the Ice Age in North America. I've read both of his books and it's not unreasonable. There are "magnetic portals" connecting Earth to the Sun at times. Particles from the Sun follow the portal paths. A flare following the portal would reproduce all of the above effects.

    Here I have a theory how effects on the Sun cause these and relate it to the Ice Ages. The post hasn't come up yet. He has to approve it. Look for the post by "Sam".

    1. Indeed this entire string of blog postings has to do with the theory that this event was some sort of a cataclysm in ancient times, presumably related to a cometfall and/or a massive meteor shower, rather than assuming a human agency was responsible for the destruction

  2. I find it interesting that the supposed date of the destruction of Mohenjo-Daro takes place at approximately the same time as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Now, in the case of Sodom and Gomorrah, it would be reasonable to conclude that Nergal-Erra & Ninurta-Ishum may have been responsible, for after all, the Salt Sea populations evidently refused to continue to pay tribute to the coalition of kings headed up by Chedorlaomar. (The name means 'Servant of Lagamar' & Lagamar was evidently Erishkigal who was Nergal's wife and worshiped in Elam, which was, by the way, quite Aryan.)

    A. E. Sayce reported that he found evidence suggesting the Salt Sea folk were also refusing to supply that same coalition of kings with their agricultural products (which had presumably fed Nergal-Erra's armies) and perhaps more importantly, were also refusing to sell bitumen to the nations involved. Bitumen was used as mortar in the nations that built with mud bricks, so their refusal to sell it to them would have pretty much brought all housing & public works projects in Mesopotamia, Assyria and Iran to a standstill.

    I am quite familiar with the Erra & Ishum text and of course I realize that both Nergal & Ninurta were considered war gods and thus affiliated with Mars. Never-the-less, there is nothing in that text that in any way leads me to believe that their weapons were comets or a meteor swarm.

    Frankly, I find the suggestion that a meteor swarm "just happened" to impact Mohenjo-Daro right in the midst of Chedorlaomar's war games far more "fanciful" than I find the idea that they got bombed. Whatever happened, Mohenjo-Daro & Sodom and Gomorrah appear to have been destroyed right around the same exact time.

    If you read the Erra & Ishum text here: http://earth-history.com/bavbylon/erra-and-ishum (it's not the best translation but at least it's online) you'll clearly see that Nergal- Erra was a berserker who went on a killing spree far and wide. He killed for the fun of it. He was caught up in the blood lust and he was a nut job who was obviously quite criminally insane. He should have been locked up & the key thrown away.

    I don't know if Mohenjo-Daro did anything that that specifically ticked Nergal-Erra off, but I do know that the Salt Sea folk evidently made him very angry. The Chedorlaomar Coalition of Kings were Asuras. Not only that, they'd been declared "fallen" Aryans by India proper and were evidently considered "Mleccha." Though Mohenjo-Daro was an Indus Valley town, if they frowned upon the Elamites & Assyria, then Mohenjo-Daro may have been on Erra's hit list too!

    I don't think it was meteors. Meteors simply do not drop on cue as a result of political intrigues.

    And didn't somebody make the suggestion that the 'Maruts' were meteors? While I don't claim to be an expert, I've spent the last ten years reading the Vedic histories and I am pretty dang certain that the Maruts were not meteors. David Frawley does qualify as an expert & he defines the Maruts as "Vedic Gods and seer family, friends of Indra, wandering sages." (Frawley, Gods, Sages & Kings, p 348)

    Today, quite a few people believe that the Amorites were Maruts, which means that Marduk would have been a Marut god. Marduk was called "Mariutu" in the Enuma Elish and the word appears to be the Babylonian equivalent of "Marut."(Stephanie Dalley, Myths from Mesopotamia, p 236) While I do suspect that Marduk was a lot of things, I seriously doubt if a meteor was one of them.

    If you would review the Erra and Ishum text, I do believe that you will see that Marduk played a very significant role in Nergal-Erra's nasty little killing spree. In fact, it was Marduk that approved it…

    Mohenjo-Daro & the Salt Sea cities all went down at the same time. Maruts were definitely involved.

    Just my two cents worth…

    Could the destruction have been man made, the comments about the bitumen was interesting, perhaps it was being used to make weapons of mass destruction as well as sealants.
