As we all know, the first nuclear bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945 at the White Sands Test Range in Los Alamos, New Mexico. But is that really the first time Earth has witnessed a nuclear explosion? According to the Mahabharata, a Sanskrit epic from ancient India, nuclear war happened, about 4,000 years ago.
Nuclear explosion in ancient India?
Mahabharata – This 1.8 million word text tells the story of a brutal conflict culminating in total destruction typical in the case of an atomic explosion. The manuscripts say that by using a flying machine known as the Vimana, humans deployed “a projectile carrying all the power of the universe”, which produced a cloud of smoke, fire, heat, and fire. “as bright as a thousand suns”.
The earth shook and arrows of fire continued to fall. The scorching heat killed both animals and humans. The water boils, killing all forms of aquatic life. Soon, hair and nails began to fall out, food was poisoned, and pottery cracked for no reason.
The birds were disoriented and circling restlessly, turning white and dying. The Mahabharata is considered mythical, but one would wonder how one can describe the details of a nuclear explosion without witnessing it firsthand. And the ancient Indian epic is not the only scripture that alludes to such a disaster.
Are nuclear explosions mentioned in the Bible?
In the Bible we have the story of Joseph, which is recorded in the book of Genesis. After being sold into slavery in Egypt, he succeeded in gaining great favor with the pharaoh by interpreting dreams and warning of impending famine – a famine that lasted 7 years across the country. world. What could have caused the 7 year famine around the world at that time?
Some argue that this scenario is compatible with the nuclear winter that follows the detonation of a sufficiently powerful nuclear bomb. Another interesting aspect is that the average lifespan of the generations before Joseph was about 200 years, but the generations after him were no more than 130 years.
According to the Bible, this event took place about 2,000 years before the birth of Christ. Some argue that the Bible cannot be considered a legitimate historical source, but sometimes connecting these signs leads to interesting results.
Nuclear war in Atlantis?
According to many ancient records, Atlantis was a civilization possessing advanced technology. They also have flying machines called vailxi and they also have fearsome weapons of mass destruction. These are mostly details mentioned in a work propagated by Plato. The legend of Atlantis, which refers to an entire continent sinking to the ocean floor in a cataclysm, seems more likely the result of a nuclear war.
Robert Oppenheimer, an American theoretical physicist, professor at the University of California at Berkeley who was involved in the Manhattan Project as well as the program to create the atomic bomb when asked by a reporter: “How does it feel to be a father? the birthplace of the atomic bomb?” he responded with another question: “You mean modern times?”. This seems to indicate that in the past, advanced civilizations have built nuclear bombs.
Proof of molten glass
This topic is stubbornly avoided by the scientific community, but there is evidence to support these facts. This evidence often comes in the form of molten glass fragments found in many of the world’s deserts.
These pieces of glass closely resemble those found at the Alamogordo Atomic Test Site. Desert glass forms when temperatures above 1,800 degrees Celsius cause sand grains to melt and stick together.
They were first described by Patrick Clayton, who found them while surveying the Sahara in 1932. Clayton discovered huge, greenish-yellow pieces of glass in the sand and presented them to geographers. his colleagues.
However, nearly 50 years later, the mystery of these pieces of glass was gradually revealed. When one of the engineers who helped create the atomic bomb was revisiting the test site in New Mexico. He noticed the shards of glass were similar to the ones he’d seen in the desert, albeit much smaller.
And according to scientific calculations, to create desert glass the size of the pieces Clayton found, the explosion must be 10,000 times more powerful than the explosion in New Mexico.
However, then a very reasonable explanation was given: these pieces of glass were formed by the impacts of giant asteroids / comets / meteorites. These effects would certainly conform to the laws of physics, and they easily generate the enormous amount of heat needed to melt silicon crystals.
But such a large impact would also leave a remarkably large crater, and in fact, during the discovery, scientists did not find any large craters formed by the impact in the desert. desert. Glass has been found in the Sahara, Mojave and the Libyan desert, however neither satellite images nor sonar have been able to find any craters or associated volcanoes. Furthermore, the glass in Libya has an extremely high purity (more than 99%). In the event of a meteorite impact, silicon would inevitably fuse with the iron in the meteorite itself, as well as other impurities, so it would not be possible to obtain such a high purity.
When we put all the clues together, the picture becomes clearer and we have to ask ourselves: is it true that nuclear weapons can only be the product of modern man? Did ancient civilizations develop modern technology thousands of years before us? Why are there descriptions of terrible weapons capable of destroying entire cities found in the legends of many cultures, far apart in space and time?
