India Ruins Suggest Ancient Atomic Attack

By James Donahue

There has been a story making its rounds on the Internet, drawn from an article originally written by writer and researcher Philip Coppens, reporting ruins of an ancient city in Rajasthan, India, that appears to have been destroyed by an atomic explosion sometimes between 8,000 and 12,000 years ago.

The story supports a theory once proposed on this website that ancient myths and even scientific evidence raises the possibility that atomic bombs were used on this planet in the distant past.

As the Coppens story is told, a layer of still radioactive ash covering the ruins of a very ancient city has been uncovered by archaeologists in Rajasthan, India. The site was revealed west of the City of Jadhpur by workers starting construction of a new housing development.

The Indian government has cordoned off the region after testing revealed high radiation levels still present in the ruins. Archaeological teams have since uncovered ruins covering a three square mile area, showing evidence of a powerful blast that destroyed most of the buildings and possibly a half million people that once lived there.

Excavations of the place, identified as two separate places named Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, uncovered the skeletal remains of the people scattered throughout the streets. Some were holding hands. Coppens wrote that it appeared “as if some instant, horrible doom had killed its inhabitants. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. There seemed no one available to bury them afterwards.”

Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli told of finding “huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city” that are fused together, literally vitrified by intense heat that “can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon.”

The story quoted Archaeologist Francis Taylor who spoke of etchings in some nearby temples. The translations suggested that the people “prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city.”

Some say the discovery gives strong credence to the ancient Indian epic known as The Mahabharata, that describes an ancient war between the Vrishnis and the Salva. The Salva are portrayed as the villains in the story.

The weird thing about this story is that the Salva flew about the sky in chariots that carried them anywhere at will. These flying machines emerged from a flying city known as the Saubha. Does that not sound strangely like an alien craft and its occupants waging warfare against the people of Earth?

The Vrishnis, who battled the Salva, were lead by a hero named Krishna, long since depicted as a Hindu deity. Krishna and his forces used “swift-striking shafts” that flashed through the sky and destroyed the invading Salva craft. Did the Earth forces have modern weapons like missiles or possibly lasers to fight off the invaders?

The great battle ends when a massive explosion destroys three cities of the Vrishnis and their neighbors, the Andhakas, killing everyone and leaving no building standing. The description of the blast is frighteningly similar to a modern nuclear explosion:

"An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas. The corpses were so burnt they were no longer recognizable. Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause. Foodstuffs were poisoned."

Ganguli said the evidence is strong “that the Rama empire was devastated by nuclear war.”

Was it an alien attack or had ancient civilizations advanced to such a state of modern weaponry that we all but destroyed ourselves using them against one another? If either story is true, is there evidence on the planet of other nuclear attacks?

Genesis 19 contains the story of Lot's escape, with his family, from the corrupted cities of Sodom and Gomorrah before they were destroyed by God. The Biblical myth says God sent fire and brimstone down from heaven. When Lot's uncle, Abraham, "looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace." (Gen. 19:28)

Could this have been the detonation of an atomic bomb? Abraham was miles away from the event when he saw this great cloud of smoke rise into the sky. The explosion also was powerful enough to destroy two cities.

The similarities between this destruction of two communities as described in the Mahabharata, and the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, are interesting. Is it the same story told in two different ways by two different cultures?

Author Rene Noorbergen, in his book Secrets of the Lost Races, describes other vitrified remains of fortresses, ziggurats and towers, all subjected to a blast of heat powerful enough to melt and fuse rock. Noorbergen describes charred ruins found between the River Ganges in India and the mountains of Rajamahal.

A story on a website for the National Association for Scientific and Cultural Appreciation (NASCA), titled Nuclear Warfare In Antiquity,” points not only to the archaeological evidence supporting the Mahabharata myth, but tells of vitrified ruins found all over the world, including North and South America.

The NASCA report states that “in Mesopotamia sizeable ziggurats – a form of early pyramid – have been found melted to their base in a vitrified mass.

“In the Arabian desert, blackened stones litter the sands over a wide area, showing signs of having been subjected to intense radiation. In Israel the location of the Dead Sea and its mysterious connection with Sodom and Gomorrah bears evidence of an amazing focus of heat that is thought to have gouged out the entire area in a massive explosion.”

The story tells of places on the planet where vitrified areas of sand, heated to become crystal, are found that stretches out over hundreds of square feet. This is exactly what happened to the desert sands in White Sands, Nevada, after the first atomic bombs were tested there in the 1940s.

Throughout Scotland ancient stone forts and other structures made of stone have been found where the walls were melted and fused together by intense heat of unexplained origin. Archaeologists have long been baffled by these primitive but vitrified fortresses. The heat of a nuclear blast, perhaps from high above, might explain how it happened.

For years it was believed these vitrified forts were peculiar to Scotland, but they also have been found in Ireland, France and Hungary.

The troubling thought here is that if this did not involve alien intervention, we may be living on a planet that has seen the human race evolve over and over again, each time developing great technologies.

If the latter is true, we must assume that each time this happened, the people did much as world military leaders are doing today. They used newly discovered technologies to create deadly weapons of war. And each time we reached this pinnacle, instead of continuing the natural evolution into something far better, we destroyed ourselves.

Are we all in hell? Are we doomed to relive these horrible lives again and again, and repeat the same mistakes over and over again until we get it right? Or is the Hopi prophecy correct. They warn that humans have lived in four worlds. They say this one will be our last.
