Nuclear War In Ancient Times

Nuclear war already occurred on Earth in remote times, and these Sanskrit epics and desert minerals are here to prove it.

While presenting a lecture at Rochester University, Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, known as “the father of the atomic bomb,” was asked during the Q&A session by one of the students if the bomb which exploded at Alamogordo during the Manhattan Project was the first one to be detonated. Oppenheimer’s reply was: “Well, yes! In modern times of course.”

His belief that nuclear tests were performed previous to the first detonations in modern times stemmed from Hindu texts describing ravaging events which occurred in remote ages.

Although Oppenheimer never referred to himself as a Hindu, nor abode to Hinduism, he gave much praise to their sacred texts, particularly to the Ramayana and Mahabharata.

He claimed that “access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century may claim over all previous centuries,” and often gave as a gift to his friends the Bhagavad Gita, the 6th book of the Mahabharata.

He quoted a very powerful verse from the Hindu scripture right after he saw the yellowish-orange mushroom cloud rise from the detonation of the atomic bomb at the Trinity site in Los Alamos, New Mexico:

Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

This line made much sense to him, as he understood that previous civilizations had also achieved the splitting of the atom in an effort to bring weapons of mass destruction to life.

The Hindu Vedas stand testimony to such achievements, and depict how atomic weapons were blown off in remote times causing tremendous havoc and destruction.

The Mahabharata reads:

Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana hurtled a single projectile charged with the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose with 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. 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 events described are said to originate some 24,000 years ago, although the text itself is dated to 7,300 BC. Their date of origin is however subject to great debate, since no organic material was found at the sites where the Ramayana and Mahabharata texts were uncovered.

But dating the texts is not as relevant as the correlation with modern-day events, as well as the evidence attesting their controversial content that can be traced to various sites across the globe.

To start with, let’s have a look at these curious glass fragments scattered throughout various deserts on our planet. They were first brought into discussion by Patrick Clayton in 1932, long before the modern-day nuke was invented.

Sand turns into glass at temperatures of 1,800 degrees Celsius (3,300 Fahrenheit), and because of this researchers have attributed the dead to a meteorite of comet fragment that had collided with the surface. This however was easily disproved for the following reasons:

Desert glass scattered across the Lybian desert

A meteorite impact would surely leave behind a sizeable crater, and although some have argued that the shifting sands would have swallow any impact traces, tests performed on the pieces of glass revealed its composition was 99 percent pure. Then, if the glass occurred as a result of a meteorite, it would have fused with iron particles, silicon and other impurities.

Decades after Clayton’s controversial discovery, researchers visiting the atomic testing grounds in New Mexico have remarked an astounding similarity between the desert glass and the glass that formed inside the impact crater. With this new hypothesis on the table, scientists have estimated that a nuclear blast 10,000 more powerful would have been needed to produce the amount of glass found in the desert.

This is exactly what the Ramayana describes:

It was a weapon so powerful that it could destroy the earth in an instant. A great soaring sound in smoke and flames, and on it sits death…”

It’s unknown how many locations on Earth were affected, but there seems to have been quite a few engulfed by these ancient weapons of mass destruction.

The Mahabharata further reads:

Dense arrows of lame, like a great shower, issued forth upon creation, encompassing the enemy. A thick gloom swiftly settled upon the Pandava hosts. All points of the compass were lost in darkness. Fierce wind began to blow upward, showering dust and gravel.

Birds croaked madly…the very elements seemed disturbed. The earth shook, scorched by the terrible violent heat of this weapon. Elephants burst into flame and ran to and from the frenzy over a vast area, other animals crumpled to the ground and died. From all points of the compass the arrows of flame rained continuously and fiercely.”

Another puzzling item is the yellowish scarab-shaped gem embedded on one of Tutankhamun’s necklaces displayed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

After Italian mineralogist Vicenzo de Michele had performed tests on the jewel, he realized it was made of glass, but it was far older than the earliest Egyptian civilization.

The only way for this desert glass to have formed was due to a meteorite impact, but no convenient crater has been detected that would have explained the pieces of glass in the Egyptian desert, not even scouting via satellite.

The only lead they could come up with was the 1908 Tunguska explosion in Syberia which flattened over 80 million trees, leaving no traces of an impact crater. A correlation was indeed established between these two enigmas, but were both lacking a plausible explanation.

An extraterrestrial device of sorts is believed to have exploded over this region of Syberia

Two ancient civilizations in the Indus Valley located on territories of modern day Pakistan an India have intrigued archaeologists ever since their discovery.

Although highly advanced and democratic societies, with irrigation and drainage systems, multi-leveled  houses, communal and even individual baths, these two cities of Mohenjo Daro and Harappa have been deserted simultaneously for no apparent reason.

This civilization spanned across 500 acres (200 hectares), and housed a population anywhere between 20,000 to 40,000 inhabitants. Coincidentally or not, their mysterious demise happened at the same time the Great Pyramid of Giza was allegedly built, around 2,500 B.C.

What brought these two cities in the ancient nuclear war equation were the skeletal remains discovered holding hands, sign of a sudden death caused by a violent cataclysm. Accounts also speak of a layer of radioactive ash that was discovered in the soil during the excavation of the sites, but these claims are somehow subject to debate due to lack of additional evidence.

Because the two cities were leveled to the ground at the same time, although there was a considerable distance between them, but were part of the same culture, further hints at events described in the Mahabharata, particularly in the 7th book entitled Drona Parva after the leader of a great army participating in the Kurukshetra War.

We beheld in the sky what appeared to us to be a scarlet cloud resembling the fierce flames of a blazing fire. From that mass many blazing missiles flashed, and tremendous roars, like the noise of a thousands drums beaten at once. And from it fell many weapons  winged with gold and thousands of thunderbolts, with loud explosions, and many hundreds of fiery wheels.”

We can only speculate if the Vedas text describes an atomic bomb explosion, or a different weapon of mass destruction the ancients possessed. But, the not-so-few accounts and abnormal objects encountered in the desert speak in favor of a past that we have barely discovered and even less have understood.

Were there really flying vessels similar to our own back then? Were these “gods” described in the Hindu scriptures mortal men that have reached a higher level of technological evolution? Or rather o group of extraterrestrial beings that have descended upon the Earth in archaic times?

1000 Pillar Temple – Impossible Ancient Technology Found

Today we are going to look at one of the strangest ancient sites in India – this is the Thousand Pillar Temple which is at least 750 years old. On first sight, it looks like a regular temple, but there is something fundamentally different about this temple, because there are no visible joints at all between the stone blocks in the walls of this temple.

This is a large temple, but look carefully as I go from the ground to the top, do you see any joints? This makes people wonder if this entire temple is made of one solid rock, like the Kailasa Temple, but archeologists confirm that it is in fact made of many many blocks of stone.

In 1300 A.D , an army of the Muslim King Allauddin Khalji tried to demolish this temple, and they took out many of the stone blocks from the ground and the ceiling, because it was easier to dismantle them, but they could not dismantle the blocks on the walls. If you look at the floor, these are newer stone slabs placed by the Archeology department, and you can see how these blocks are loosely connected.

If you compare the modern day stone masonry with the ancient technique, modern technology appears quite primitive, because you can clearly see the joints. The archeology department has been trying to restore the temple from the destruction and graffiti by Allauddin Khalji’s army.

Now, why is this temple called ‘The thousand pillar temple’? Most visitors wonder why this is known as the thousand pillar temple because it doesn’t have a thousand pillars. It is called so because it is made of one thousand blocks of stone, this is the actual reason why this name is used. But even in most sophisticated temples like the Lepakshi temple, we can see clear evidence of joints between the blocks, but in this temple, the joints are not visible.

What is fascinating is that there was no cement, mortar, or glue used to join these blocks. How did ancient builders achieve such an extraordinary level of jointing, many centuries ago? What kind of technology existed and how was such a temple built?

The underlying technology is this:
Ancient builders created a complex interlocking system with at least a dozen different cuts in each stone block. These complex cuts maximize the amount of surface area shared by the connecting blocks, and will create an extremely tight fit.

This is hard enough to do between 2 stone blocks, but imagine using several stone blocks on all sides and how many cuts would have been needed to connect 4 or 5 blocks together. I mean, this is just an extraordinary technology. This can be done on wood, but how did they manage to make these cuts on large stone blocks many centuries ago? Making these cuts is one thing, but the level of precision, to make these joints invisible can be achieved only with advanced machines.

We can clearly see that building a massive temple with no visible joints is impossible with primitive tools. Did ancient builders use cutting, drilling and polishing tools, just like today? If so, do we have any evidence of these tools in the temple itself?

How about these carvings which resemble modern drilling and polishing tools? In most temples, we usually see carvings of Gods, but in this temple, we can see these tool like carvings, with a conical, striated top with a long shaft, which is remarkably similar to modern day tool bits.
Just compare these carvings with today’s tool bits side by side. You have to admit there is an uncanny similarity. Is this a coincidence, or did ancient builders use tool bits just like us, to make these precise interlocking system?

The pillars in the temple confirm that drilling machines were in fact used. There are very tiny holes drilled on these pillars. My friend is struggling to send a thread through the small holes, but these holes are too small even for a thread. The priest is happy to help us, he picks up something thinner than a thread and inserts it successfully through these holes.

If you think these carvings are not drill bits, how do you explain such tiny holes carved on the pillars? How do you explain the construction of an entire temple with no visible joints? Were they created with advanced machines, or with simple tools like chisels and hammers?

1,000-Year-Old Mammoth Bone Pendant With A Mysterious Message In Turkic Runes Discovered In Yakutia

An 11-year-old boy in the village of Yakutia has discovered a 1,000-year-old message on a pendant that was carved into a mammoth bone with Turkic runic inscriptions.

The four mysterious words are believed to be in the Orkhon-Yenisei type script. Such writings are normally found in rock art in Yakutia, also known as Sakha Republic, the world’s coldest region.

Academic Ninel Malysheva said: ‘Runes rarely occur on such things as talismans and amulets. ‘If it is confirmed that this bone found in Namsky district is genuine, it will be a great scientific discovery for the republic.  ‘A comprehensive study is now required involving paleontologists, archaeologists and Turkologist. Studies on exact dating and decoding the inscription are underway at the Museum of Writing, part of the North-Eastern Federal University (NEFU).

Interesting fact:

One of the earliest recorded Turkic language is in the form of a script called “Turkic Runes”, found in Russia’s southern Siberia and the Xinjiang uygur Autonomous Region of China (a region not surprisingly also known as Chinese Turkestan) beginning at around the 8th century CE.

What are the four mysterious words?

One theory is that the words express ‘good wishes’, but scientists hope to find the exact meaning.

Village where the ancient pendant was discovered is some 100 kilometres north of Yakutsk, the regional capital, and the world’s coldest city. Another example of Turkic runes in Yaktutia is the so-called Petrov inscription. It is a writing made using ocher some 200 km from Yakutsk. It is known as the most northerly rune inscription in the world.

Researchers in the middle of the last century believed that the inscription indicated the location of medieval treasure.

A literal translation is said to read: ‘Pearls of the tribe Az.’ Scientists claim such Turkic scripts date back 1,000 years or more.

The Old Turkic script – also known as variously Göktürk script, Orkhon script, Orkhon-Yenisei script –  is the alphabet used by the Göktürks and other early Turkic khanates during the 8th to 10th centuries.

The script is named after the Orkhon Valley in Mongolia where early 8th century inscriptions were discovered in an 1889 expedition by Nikolai Yadrintsev. These Orkhon inscriptions were published by Vasily Radlov and deciphered by the Danish philologist Vilhelm Thomsen in 1893. This writing system was later used within the Uyghur Khaganate.

Additionally, a Siberian variant is known from 9th century Yenisei Kirghiz inscriptions, and it has likely cousins in the Talas Valley of Turkestan and the Old Hungarian alphabet of the 10th century. Words were usually written from right to left.

Yakut runic letters are the least studied in Siberia. They provoke heated discussions among the linguists and Turkologists. But most new finds of inscriptions are made in Yakutia. Now the total number all Yakutian finds is close to 90. Most runic inscriptions of Yakutia have not yet been deciphered.

The Secret Of Cappadocia

Who built the underground City of Derinkuyu?

The worldwide known region of Turkey – Cappadocia it has magical beauty not only on its surface but also in the bottom. Every part of this region is magical. Above ground, there are ancient volcanic stone chimneys, known as “fairy chimneys”. There are no words to describe this excellence. Оr as someone once said: Cappadocia – it looks like Mars but it’s in Turkey. Over the years, generations and cultures have changed, but they all contributed to the unique appearance and structure (in and out) of these chimneys today. The “fairy chimneys” have very impressive architecture.

But Cappadocia is not just what we see on the surface. In the heart of Cappadocia lie hidden places. Also it has beauty inside, within, like a human being you know. The underground city of this region number about 200 and they are spread across the entire region. It’s assumed there could be more lying below the surface, waiting to be discovered. Of all the underground cities discovered so far, the most interesting story brings the city of Derinkuyu. The city was discovered by accident. when a local family decided to renovate their home. Suddenly a wall gave way to reveal a room and passage that led to this underground network. Derinkuyu it’s like a huge building.

According to some research, it is on 11 floors or levels descending about 280 feet, with an area of a little over 4 miles squared (10.4 kilometers squared). Inside there are many chambers for everyday activities, tombs, temples, living quarters etc. This underground city can also be connected to other local underground networks as well as wineries, underground water well systems providing fresh water, and a security system made up of enormous stone doors that can close the city from the inside. Each section, or level, can be separated from the following. Heavy stone doors could close Derinkuyu from the inside in order to fend off intruders, and each story could be shut off individually.

The most frequent guests throughout the years are tourists and archaeologists. The place by itself it’s safe considering its solid structure. The underground rock is very strong. Despite the good structure of the stone, there are no signs of the existence of any cave-ins. Furthermore, the engineer of this masterpiece had a good knowledge of the stone, stonework, architecture, and the local geography.
And the real question is: Who built this underground kingdom and why?

It is really difficult to determine the age of the structure. Furthermore, there is no recorded documentation of the construction and the people who lived there moved over the years. Common assumptions are that they are built by the early Christians but later research has shown that early Christians were only temporary residents. According to UNESCO, the first signs of monastic activity in Cappadocia date back to the 4th century, at which time, acting on the instructions of Basil the Great, Bishop of Caesarea, small anchoritic communities began inhabiting cells dug into the rock. It is believed that these underground premises were mostly refugee shelters.

There are many theories about who built the underground city. There are beliefs that the caves were constructed by the Persian King Yima. But in fact, he was more a mythological figure than a real king. The story of the king Yima is similar to the story of Noah in the Bible: The king built an underground city on the orders of the god Ahura Mazda, to protect his people from a catastrophic winter. He collects pairs of the best animals and people as well as the best seeds in order to reseed the Earth after the winter cataclysm.

The story of the ‘winter’ it’s in fact maybe the period of the ice age. And the last ice was between 110,000 to 10,000 years ago. The diverse labyrinths, so many floors and security doors point to the fact that these rooms are built to protect something or someone. The most impressive fact is that the network would have taken an immense amount of time to construct without advanced tools. The mystery of who built these underground networks is huge and heavy as the rolling stones on the doors of Derinkuyu.
