Nuclear Warfare in Ancient India


Julius Robert Oppenheimer is remembered as “The Father of the Atomic Bomb”. During a college lecture, a student asked “‘Was the atomic test at Alamagordo the first nuclear blast?”

(The student meant: Was there a U.S. program before Alamagordo?)

Oppenheimer answered: ‘Yes, in modern times.’

(The creator of the A-Bomb meant: Our atomic program was the first, not counting the ancient nuclear wars of the distant past. Oppenheimer was a student of the old books of India; such as the Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita.)

[A little bit about Oppenheimer:

In his first year as an undergraduate at Harvard, Oppenheimer was admitted to graduate standing in physics on the basis of independent study. As an undergraduate he never took a class in physics. In 1933 he learned sanskrit and met the Indologist Arthur Ryder at Berkeley. He read the Gita in sanskirt. He later developed a keen interest on ancient texts of India. Later he cited his visit to india as the most influential thing in his life.

Post World War, his lectures were considered to be some of the best. For every Theory he gives a quote from Mahabharata or Gita. He speaks about Shiva and Krishna, even during the 'Trinity' he quoted a verse from Mahabharata]

They are not fictional stories. They are history. They speak of flying vimanas. Vimanas were real vehicles and the origin of the ‘Aeroplanes .’ Great wars were described in these early texts. Weapons could literally level the land like a moving force field. In ancient India, we find words for certain measurements of length; one was the distance of light-years and one was the length of an atom. Only a society that possessed nuclear energy would have the need for such words. When Oppenheimer said ‘I am become the destroyer of worlds,’ he was quoting from these ancient books. Believe it or not, the deserts on a number of continents today are the result of (prehistoric) nuclear warfare. Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli says that Indian sacred writings are full of such descriptions, which sound like an atomic blast as experienced in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He says references mention fighting sky chariots and final weapons. An ancient battle is described in the Drona Parva, a section of the Mahabharata. “The passage tells of combat where explosions of final weapons decimate entire armies, causing crowds of warriors with steeds and elephants and weapons to be carried away as if they were dry leaves of trees,” says Ganguli.


Consider these verses from the ancient Mahabharata: …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 splendour… a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds… …the cloud of smoke rising after its first explosion formed into expanding round circles like the opening of giant parasols… was an unknown weapon, An iron thunderbolt, A gigantic messenger of death, Which reduced to ashesThe entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas. …The corpses were so burned As to be unrecognisable. 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.

Until the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, modern mankind could not imagine any weapon as horrible and devastating as those described in the ancient Indian texts. Yet they very accurately described the effects of an atomic explosion. Radioactive poisoning will make hair and nails fall out. Immersing oneself in water gives some respite, though it is not a cure. When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities, many holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. Excavations down to the street level revealed 44 scattered skeletons, as if doom had come so suddenly they could not get to their houses. All the skeletons were flattened to the ground. A father, mother and child were found flattened in the street, face down and still holding hands. And these skeletons are thousands of years old, even by traditional archaeological standards. What could cause such a thing? Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals? Furthermore, there is no apparent cause of a physically violent death.

These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At one site, Soviet scholars found a skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal. Other cities have been found in northern India that show indications of explosions of great magnitude. One such city, found between the Ganges and the mountains of Rajmahal, seems to have been subjected to intense heat. Huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city are fused together, literally vitrified! And since there is no indication of a volcanic eruption at Mohenjo-Daro or at the other cities, the intense heat to melt clay vessels can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon. The cities were wiped out entirely.


There is evidence that the Rama empire (now India) was devastated by nuclear war. The Indus valley is now the Thar desert, and the site of the radioactive ash found west of Jodhpur is around there. A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built. For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction. The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators’ gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher estimates that the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan in 1945.

Another curious sign of an ancient nuclear war in India is a giant crater near Bombay. The nearly circular 2,154-metre-diameter Lonar crater, located 400 kilometres northeast of Mumbai and aged at less than 50,000 years old, could be related to nuclear warfare of antiquity. No trace of any meteoric material, etc., has been found at the site or in the vicinity, and this is the world’s only known “impact” crater in basalt. Indications of great shock (from a pressure exceeding 600,000 atmospheres) and intense, abrupt heat (indicated by basalt glass spherules) can be ascertained from the site.

    Lizard Man Reportedly Mauls And Bites Through South Carolina Couple's Car


    He stands 7 feet tall with glowing red eyes, a scaly body and three-fingered hands, and has a nasty habit of biting, ripping and pulling apart car fenders, hood ornaments and radio antennas. Some local citizens think it could be the work of the infamous Lizard Man of South Carolina.

    "Whatever it is, somebody needs to find out what's mauling these cars because if it can do that kind of damage to a vehicle, look what it could do to a person," former Lee County, S.C., Sheriff Liston Truesdale told The Huffington Post.

    After an automobile had a run-in last week with something mysterious in the rural area of the state, the car owners, Leon and Ada Marshall, discovered that their vehicle was riddled with what appeared to be teethmarks that went completely through the fender, according to WLTX television.

    It had all the earmarks, or toothmarks, of similar occurrences in the county that began in 1988.

    "I can remember it just like it was yesterday," said Truesdale. "We got a call that something had mauled a car, and whatever it was did a good job on it.

    "We dispatched two deputies to go see what had happened. Then they called me, saying, 'Sheriff, we've never seen anything like this before,' and you know what? I never have seen anything like that before!"

    Truesdale recalled that the chrome on the front car fender "was snapped in two, like you would snap a toothpick. It tore off sides, other pieces of chrome and the radio antenna -- it was all over the car. While we were there, we learned there had been a big strange creature seen lurking around a nearby swamp."

    The 82-year-old retired sheriff told the story of a 17-year-old eyewitness who claimed to have a very close encounter with the creature in 1988, dubbed locally as Lizard Man. Truesdale added that the young man came from a responsible, respectable family and he even passed a polygraph test.

    "He never changed his story," said Truesdale. "He was coming home from work and putting his tools back in his car after fixing a flat tire. He saw something running toward him which he described having red eyes and three-fingered hands. When he jumped in his car, he felt a bump on the back of it as he drove out of there like a bat out of hell.

    "The creature went from the trunk to the top of the car, looking down at him through the windshield, and he was able to move his car back and forth to throw it off the car. His parents said he was so afraid, it took two hours to settle him down."

    Two years ago, Truesdale was called in again to help with the investigation of another case because of the similarities to the 1988 reports, when something mauled a van by biting through the metal and bending the fenders.

    "Back in 1988, I tried to find out if anywhere else in the southeast had anything that had mauled cars, and nobody came up with anything," he said.

    Not to be outdone by what could be considered his competition, Erik "Lizardman" Sprague is familiar with the reports of his South Carolina counterpart. Counterpart? Well, Sprague has actually become a lizard man in his own right.

    What began as a conceptual art project in college, and has evolved via a body modification process, Sprague has transformed himself into a green, scaly, well, lizard man.

    "It was an art piece about exploring what it means to be human and it's developed beyond that," Sprague told The Huffington Post with a forked tongue. "The tattooing covers my entire body right now, so I'm kind of like a coloring book where we're filling in the scales green. The only actual surgery was my tongue bifurcation, but there were other intensive procedures like the implants on my forehead."

    If you happen to do an Internet search for lizard man, you'll most likely either come up with items about the South Carolina beast or about Sprague.

    "Yeah, that's my main competition for search results -- it's my nemesis," Sprague said.

    He scoffed at the notion that another guy might be out there with similar body modifications, going around the countryside mauling cars.

    "I don't think anybody would manage to do that, especially not somebody who's 7 feet tall and only has three fingers [on each hand]. I think we would've spotted him somewhere beforehand.

    "The skeptic in me says 'No, it's not real.' The artist-prankster in me really hopes that it's somebody's very cool project, that somebody's out there with a costume and they're doing this for fun in a great spirit.

    "Finally, the cynic in me wishes that people would just appreciate it in that vein of classic hoaxes and stop making crappy T-shirts and exploiting it as a tourist thing."

    So now, South Carolina has two potential lizard men in its jurisdiction. The one reportedly mauling cars is sticking close to swamps, and the one making publicity appearances is heading to theRipley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium in Myrtle Beach to display his lizardness in all its glory between July 17-24.

    Xiao Yeren (Little Wild Man)

    While camping with his family in the spring of 1987, ten year-old Wang Yi Tao went missing in a remote forest in the heart of China. He was found three weeks later. The tale of his mysterious disappearance and miraculous survival once captured the imagination of a nation, but has now become the stuff of urban legend. Over twenty years later, documentary filmmakers follow Wang and others in an attempt to uncover the truth behind the events that forever changed their lives.
