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?

Archaeology Dig In Spain Yields Prehistoric ‘Crystal Weapons’

How do you feel when you see a beautiful crystal? Perhaps the perfection of the diamond, or the vivid colors of the different gems are your thing? The fact is that people have been fascinated by crystals ever since they had first discovered them.

The names of the gems come from ancient cultures which were pretty much obsessed with them, adding them to their jewelry, kitchenware and weapons.

Do you know that even the Bible describes the new Jerusalem after the apocalypse built all in gems and crystals?

An archaeology dig in Spain shows that crystals were an object of fascination and ritual even back in the 3rd millennium BC. At the site of Valencina de la Concepción, archaeologists uncovered a number of shrouds decorated with amber beads and they also found a “remarkable set” of ‘crystal weapons’.

The Monterilio tholos, excavated between 2007 and 2010, is “a great megalithic construction…which extends over 43.75 m in total.” It has been constructed out of large slabs of slate and served as a burial site.
The period in which this site was built was well known for the excavation of metals from the ground, and where there is excavation – there can also be crystals. In the case with the Monterilio tholos, the people there found a way to shape the quartz crystals into weapons.

However, the spot where these crystals were uncovered is not associated with rock crystal deposits, so it means that these crystals were imported from somewhere else.

The rock crystal source used in creating these weapons has not been pinpointed, but two potential sources have been suggested, “both located several kilometers away from Valencina.”

As the academic paper which focuses on these crystal weapons states, the manufacture of the crystal dagger “must have been based on accumulation of transmitted empirical knowledge and skill taken from the production of flint dagger blades as well from know-how of rock-crystal smaller foliaceous bifacial objects, such as Ontiveros and Monterilio arrowheads.”

The exact number of ‘crystal weapons’ found in the site has been estimated to “10 crystal arrowheads, 4 blades and the rock crystal core of the Monterilio tholos.”

Interestingly enough, although the bones of 20 individuals were found in the main chamber, none of the crystal weapons can be ascribed to them. The individuals had been buried with flint daggers, ivory, beads, and other items, but the crystal weapons were kept in separate chambers.

These crystal weapons could have had ritualistic significance and were most probably kept for the elite. Their use was perhaps closely connected to the spiritual significance they possessed. Indeed, many civilizations have found crystals as having a highly spiritual and symbolical significance.

The paper states that “they probably represent funerary paraphernalia only accessible to the elite of this time-period. The association of the dagger blade to a handle made of ivory, also a non-local raw material that must have been of great value, strongly suggests the high-ranking status of the people making use of such objects.”

Malapa skeletons are the same hominin species

Australopithecus lived two million years ago.

Anthropologists have published the results of a new study in to two fossil skeletons found in South Africa.

The skeletons, which were unearthed in 2008 at the fossil site of Malapa within the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site near Johannesburg, belong to an early hominin known as Australopithecus sediba.

More complete than the famous ‘Lucy’ specimen from Ethiopia, the skeletons were of a young male and adult female – both believed to be somewhere around two million years old.

For a time, it wasn’t even clear that the two belonged to the same species, but now, following a decade of research in to the finds, researchers have concluded that they are indeed the same.

The study has also revealed more about what these early hominins may have been like.

“Our interpretations in the papers suggest that A. sediba was adapted to terrestrial bipedalism, but also spent significant time climbing in trees, perhaps for foraging and protection from predators,” wrote New York University anthropologist Scott Williams.

“This larger picture sheds light on the lifeways of A. sediba and also on a major transition in hominin evolution, that of the largely ape-like species included broadly in the genus Australopithecus to the earliest members of our own genus, Homo.”

Ancient Roman Cemetery is Full of Mysterious Headless Skeletons

(Archaeological Solutions)

In England, excavations for developments of the housing kind often lead to developments of the archeological kind. While digging holes for foundations in the tiny old town of Great Whelnetham, Suffolk, in eastern England, construction workers found a Roman-era cemetery with a macabre mystery … many of the skeletons were headless, with the skull placed either between the knees, between the feet or even under a knee. Criminals? Vampires? Anti-development zombies? Something worse?

“The incisions through the neck were post-mortem and were neatly placed just behind the jaw. An execution would cut lower through the neck and with violent force, and this is not present anywhere.”

Archeologist Andrew Peachey of Archaeological Solutions, an independent archaeological contractor providing archaeological monitoring and research for urban excavations, was called in by developer Havebury Housing Partnership to investigate the cemetery, which contained 52 skeletons of which 17 had their heads removed and placed elsewhere. Seventeen more were “deviant” burials where the skeleton was face down or in a fetal position. There were also 4 skulls with no bodies. (Photos of the remains can be seen here.) The rest of the bodies were placed with heads intact in the usual face-up burial position. Peachey’s initial analysis determined that the cemetery was from the 4th century CE and that the headless bodies were not the result of executions.

“This appears to be a careful funeral rite that may be associated with a particular group within the local population, possibly associated with a belief system (cult) or a practice that came with a group moved into the area.”

But what kind of cult? Peachey tells the East Anglian Daily Times that headless burials such as these are extremely rare in Britain. He also pointed out a second mystery – the deceased appeared to be healthy when they died. Most were middle-aged or older (with a few children under 10) and in good shape.

“They were well nourished, and several had very robust upper arms/bodies consistent with a working agricultural population.”

Peachey proposes that they could have been slaves or a labor force brought in to work the fields, but the care used in the removal of the heads and their placement suggests these were members of the community and buried with respect. He has no explanation for why they died so healthy – although many had dental problems, most had healed, and evidence of tuberculosis was common in 4th century agrarian communities, so they weren’t killed by the disease nor beheaded postmortem to prevent them from rising and spreading the disease again.

The people of the Pacific island of Kiribati exhume their dead and remove their skulls to be displayed as sign of reverence in hopes the spirit will protect them. Could a similar culture or cult in 4th century England had a similar practice?

Not surprisingly, the remains have been removed to a local museum and the development is expected to be completed in July. While the skeletons and detached skulls are being analyzed for more information on the who’s and why’s of the strange burial practice, people will soon be living where they laid undisturbed for centuries. Would you want to move right in or wait for the explanation?
