Did an atomic bomb go off in India 12,000 years ago?
An atomic blast hit India between 8 thousand and 12 thousand years ago: archeologist Francis Taylor stated it for a decade on the web, challenging official history thanks to a series of findings, literary and on the group, apparently undisputable.
Evidence of an ancient atomic war
Taylor firstly would have discovered an area of about 3 miles square contaminated by high radioactive ashes about 10 miles away from Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Moreover, even in the Sanskrit epic poem Mahabharata, edited between 400 b.C. and 400 a.C. which according to tradition tells events occurred around 3.200 b.C., would be a description of an atomic blast.
“A single projectile charged with all the power in the universe… An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as 10,000 suns, rose in all its splendor... It was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes an entire race”.
Moreover: “The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out, pottery broke without any apparent cause, and the birds turned white... After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected. To escape from this fire, the soldiers threw themselves into the river”.
Craters and radioactive skeletons
It's not just that: near Bombay according to Taylor there is a crater clearly not volcanic, called Lonar Crater, that the expert considers to be the remnants of an atomic blast, while near the ancient cities of Mohenjo-Daro (literally “deaths' hill”) and Harappa, located in the Indus Valley dating back to the Bronz Age, would be discovered skeletons which had a radioactive level “50 times greater than normal”, many “holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place”.
But how is it possible that thousands of years ago and the entire civilization was wiped out by an atomic blast in India without anything was discovered so far?
Maybe this was a kind of time traveler who prevented any paradoxes restarting history in a more profitable way for him and his era? Or were ancient astronauts who concluded in the most ultimate manner a dispute with inhabitants of those lands?
No match on the ground
Sadly even a superficial examination of quoted sources does not confirm anything about this compelling tale: in the Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa diggings (the two cities were discovered about a century ago) were never recovered radioactive skeletons, nor corpses sprawling in the streets or in unnatural poses unless you want to believe that such a discovery has been concealed so far.
It's possible but unlikely. Even about alleged high radiation levels near Jodhpur, we don't have more news, but supposing it's true how could have developed a city established 550 years ago if the area had been highly radioactive?
Moreover, after a blast radioactive levels falling rapidly for the vast majority of radioactive isotopes produced, so much so that Hiroshima and Nagasaki came back to flourish after atomic blasts in 1945. Just Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 persist for an extended period, but btw have half-lives of 30 and 28 years, therefore after 8-12,000 years would be almost no trace.
Lonar Crater and Mahabharata do not provide any evidence
The Lonar Crater, for its part, has an age between 570,000 and 656,000 years, altogether excessive in order to be the result of an atomic blast “just” 8-12 thousand years ago, especially since over half a million years ago in Asia Homo Sapiens was not even appeared (the earliest ancestors appeared about 300,000 years ago in Africa).
Quite simply the crater was the result of a hypervelocity strike of either a meteor or a comet, as mineralogy and ejecta blanket evidence also proves. The last evaluation: you can't find any trace on the web regarding the quotes from Mahabharata nor of the alleged archeologist Francis Taylor.
On the other hand, the site Skeptoid.com discovered on Rense.com a copy of the original article mentioning this story on the web, published on the English site Isleofavalon.co.uk January 1992. This is a find almost archeological, don't you think?
