9,000 years from Rama

“Half of writing history is hiding the truth.” - 2005 Universal film “Serenity”

Welcome to the first edition of “Shadow Science.” I’d like to take the occasional foray into alternate explanations that mainstream scientists and researchers refuse to acknowledge, much in the world of archeology.

The first is the evidence for a nuclear war in India long before the time of the pharaohs of Egypt. It was in the Paleoindian era, no earlier than 8,000 to 9,000 years ago or about 7000 BC. (Also about the time that alternative science dates the forerunner of ancient Egypt, but that’s a topic for our next column.)

About 20 years ago a housing development was under construction in Rajasthan, India, ten miles west of Jodhpur. For a long time, there had been a high rate of cancer and birth defects around the three-square-mile area under development. When scientists finally came to investigate before the development was too far along, they found that there was a layer of radioactive ash in the excavated area to the degree that would indicate a nuclear event at least the size of Hiroshima or Nagasaki. Digging further, evidence of an ancient city was unearthed of at least 8,000 years of age, perhaps older.

The area described was once part of the Rama empire, now India. Ancient sacred texts describe what sounds like a nuclear—or several nuclear—detonations in the Indus Valley that is now the Thar desert. The 6500 BC verses describe a single giant arrow charged with the power of the sun; that a glowing or incandescent column of flame, bright as a thousand suns, rose in a column and expanded quickly in round blossoms like the opening of giant parasols.

A historian, Kisari M. Ganguli, has found sacred writing is full of descriptions that sound like the descriptions of nuclear detonations: fighting sky chariots that delivered final weapons that decimated entire armies, the contamination of food, how those not incinerated immediately experienced their hair and fingernails falling out.

At another site in the same region, Soviet researchers found a skeleton thousands of years old with radiation 50 times above normal. Another unearthed city between the Ganges and the Rajmahal Hills appeared to have been exposed to intense heat. Walls and foundations of the city are fused together. There is no volcanic activity in the area, leaving a nuclear explosion the only likely explanation.

Then there is the quote from ancient Sanskrit literature uttered by Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer after watching the first nuclear test in New Mexico in 1945: “Now I have become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.”
During an early 1950s interview at Rochester University, he was asked if that was the first atomic bomb ever detonated. Oppenheimer replied, “Well, yes, in modern history.”

India isn’t the only location to show the vitrification, or fusion of brick and stone construction. There is evidence of such intense heat in Ireland, Scotland, France, Turkey and even the upper Midwest of the United States. The Gainey site in Michigan; Thedford, Ontario; Potts, New York; Shoop, Pennsylvania; Alton, Indiana; Taylor, Illinois; and an area near Baker, New Mexico.

Back to India. There’s an ancient nearby circular depression about 275 miles north of Bombay (Mumbai), called the Lonar crater that has been dated less than 50,000 years. Thee is no trace of meteoritic material. It is  the best known so-called “impact crater” in basalt. It appears to have been subjected to 600,000 atmospheres of intense and abrupt heat based on the basalt glass spherules at the site.

Then there’s the destruction of the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which sounds much like nuclear detonations. A dense column of smoke rose rapidly, a cloud rained burning sulphur, the soil turned to sulphur and salt so that no blade of grass could grow. There are salt pillars still there today which, if they were of normal salt, would long ago have dissolved into the ground.

Deuteronomy 32:32-33 reads: Their vine grows from the vine of Sodom, from the vineyards of Gomorrah. Their grapes are poison, and their clusters are bitter. Their wine is the venom of snakes, the deadly poison of vipers.” In other words, contaminated by radiation.

Other cities have been destroyed with similar descriptions. Admah and Aeboiim (Deuteronomy 29:23), Edom and Teman (Jeremiah 49:7-22) and Moab and Amman (Zephaniah 2:0).

“Babylon, the most glorious of kingdoms, the flower of Chaldean culture, will be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah when God destroyed them. Babylon will never rise again. Generation after generation will come and go, but the land will never again be lived in. Nomads and shepherds will refuse to camp there or their sheep to graze.” - Isaiah 13:19-20.

To this day, the area remains unoccupied by permanent human settlement.
