Why were certain ancient cities suddenly abandoned thousands of years ago? Why were numerous bodies found scattered on the streets of these cities, with high levels of radioactivity? Could an atomic war have occurred, many millennia ago, in those cities? Could our ancestors have had advanced technology, surpassing today’s nuclear capabilities? Scientists have shown impressive evidence found in ruins in India that such an explosion actually occurred.
On the other hand, it must be remembered that some myth ancestral describe situations that today we clearly relate to possible atomic conflicts. Texts from thousands of years ago appear to contain what could be interpreted as accurate descriptions of nuclear explosions.
Thus, the great epic epic of India, the Mahabharata, recounts in specific passages a chaos and destruction that seem to describe, with great precision, the effects and aftermath of a nuclear war: massive explosions as “bright as a thousand suns” are described with bodies scorched to the point of being unrecognizable.
According to these legends, those who survived the tragedy lost their hair and then their fingernails, while food supplies became contaminated – all of this is consistent with our current understanding of the effects of radiation poisoning and the radioactive contamination that results in an explosion atomic. Could this story be more than just a myth? Can this account really describe a nuclear war that occurred in the past?
Some scientists – mocked for this reason on numerous occasions – understand it as the possibility that ancient civilizations could have existed as advanced (if not more advanced) than our current civilization, providing evidence to support this theory. Thus, in the state of Rajasthan, located in northwestern India, a layer of highly radioactive ash was found near Jodhpur, which was already enough to warrant an investigation. Later, the ancient ruins of Harappa in northern Pakistan, and those of Mohenjo-Daro in western Pakistan were unearthed. Evidence of a nuclear explosion that occurred thousands of years ago was found in both cities.
When the Mohenjo-Daro excavations reached the level of the old streets of the time, 44 skeletons were discovered scattered throughout the city lying in the avenues, suggesting that those individuals suffered a sudden and violent death. Likewise, certain areas of the site also showed a clear increase in radioactivity levels.
Indian researcher David Davenport found evidence of what appeared to be the epicenter of a large explosion, which spanned about 45.72 meters, and where all the objects were found to have been melted and crystallized. So much so that the rocks melted at temperatures of around 1,500 degrees Celsius, turning into a glass-like substance.
In his book “Enigmas of Ancient History”, A Gorbovsky explains that the last skeleton found in the ancient settlement of Mohenjo-Daro contained a radiation level 50 times higher than it was supposed to record, and that thousands of “black stones ”Which had previously been vessels forming a kind of stony mass, melted due to extreme heat.
For his part, Davenport also explained that what was found in Mohenjo-Daro was exact to the effects that occurred in Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the sad nuclear explosions suffered in the first half of the 20th century. However, other scientists refuted these findings by pointing out that the bodies found at Mohenjo-Daro were actually part of a massive grave of very humble people.
