    Nuclear warfare in ancient India?

    Apparently this isn't a new thing, but I am just now hearing about it.

    There is strong evidence in a somewhat recently discovered ancient city that it may have been destroyed by a nuclear blast. Interesting article.

    I would see delivery method as a problem back then. Maybe a blacksmith was hitting two pieces of uranium together?

    Interesting though...

    There is some evidence that an atomic bomb was detonated in Germany in the late 1930's. I believe there is actually some film of one of the 2 or 3 test detonations. Hitler apparently was apparently not interested since there was no effective means of delivery onto enemy soil. Consequently, it was not funded for the war effort. It would have been more of a dirty bomb.

    It is doubtful that the technology was available in India at the time. The Chinese who discovered gunpowder had no real use for it except to make fire crackers.

    The high levels of radiation could be naturally occurring in the form of Radon Gas escaping from the ground.

    Personally, I'd be more apt to believe a Sodom and Gomorrah thing, perhaps a meteor.

    They recently discovered a crater in Australia (that I recall) that they estimate was caused by something like a 6km meteor. That would make a HELL of a bang.

    We are arrogant to assume our ancestors who described "wonderful things" in the bible and other ancient texts perfectly understood the world around them or what they saw.

    For that matter, so are we...

    I'm not saying I buy into the ancient alien's theory...I'm just saying I keep my mind open, because I think it's arrogant of people to assume if we couldn't do it today, then nobody could back then when faced with some evidence that someone or something did something and that someone wrote down what he saw even if he didn't understand what it was.

    One thing I noticed in the article, it says the bomb would have been comparable in size and strength to the ones we dropped on Japan in WWII. But, the cities we bombed in Japan with the atom bombs are not today as radioactive as this place in India is still after 8,000 years. That seems to suggest that the source of this radioactivity might be renewing or natural. Had it been a relatively small atomic blast detonated 8,000 years ago on that spot, the background radioactive levels would not be as high a they describe in the article I think.

    Anyone remember the book and later the movie "Chariots of the Gods?" by Erich von Daniken. The book came out in 1970. It was interesting theory if nothing else.
