Mohenjo-Daro was a highly developed and heavily populated ancient settlement in the Indus Valley. The ruins are located in the province of Sindh, Pakistan along side the west bank of the Indus river near Sarasvati region. The area was once inhabited by Indian people from the Harappa civilization.
This civilization is believed to be decedents from a much older culture that was believed to have existed as far back as 6th century BC (6500BC). It is estimated that Mohenjo-Daro was constructed between 2500 and 3000 BC and remained inhabited up until around 1800 BC, when the city along with it’s people were suddenly destroyed in a violent explosion.
Other cities in the Indus Valley region appeared to have suffered the same fate. Most notably, the ancient city of Harappa.
Unlike other ancient civilizations such as Mesopotamia, which fell but were replaced by new civilizations that preserved and built on the achievements of their predecessors, much of what the Harappa peoples had accomplished were lost. The legacy of an entire civilization was wiped out. Their advanced standards for the measurement of distance and weight ceased to be used and their system of writing was forgotten. Their remarkable skills in community planning, sewage control, and engineering were meaningless to the more primitive nomadic people who later took control of their homelands.
The ruins at Mohenjo-Daro all appear to have been fused or melted and have been turned into a kind of ceramic glass material. This type of evidence means that the city had been exposed to extreme temperatures as high as 1500 degrees Celsius and then followed by sudden cooling. Walls, pottery and other items found in the city had been turned into the same ‘glass like’ material.
There is an epicenter 150 feet wide, where everything is fused or melted together on all sides and about 180 feet outward from the center, the bricks are melted only on one side, indicating a blast.
Skeletons were found all around the city as if frozen in time. The skeletons all appear in the positions they would as if they died unexpectedly while going about their daily lives and some of them are even in defensive positions as if trying to block something from hitting them. It is clearly obvious that these people died right were they stood in a horrible and terrifying event. No one had ever returned to bury the corpses.
All the glassified skeletons remain completely in tact and undisturbed by weathering or normal predatory activity. They are among the most radioactive ever found, comparable to those of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Soviet scholars found one skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal yet still almost 4,000 years old.
There is no geographic evidence of volcanic eruptions or explosions in this region during the subject time period. There is no craters or any other evidence of meteor like impacts in the area. If the region was perhaps victim to an explosion like the Tunguska event which occurred in the early morning on June 30, 1908 near the Stony Tunguska River, Siberia, it does not explain the vast amount of vitrification.
By examining the Tunguska region, a researcher can get an idea of what happens in the event a large meteorite explodes in mid-air before impacting earth. There is no evidence of vast vitrification in the Tunguska region. The damage in Tunguska was caused by the intense blast and shock waves but lacked the heat that had to of been present in Mohenjo-Daro.
Mainstream science has yet to offer a credible explanation for the destruction of Mohenjo-Daro and the many other ancient ruins in the Indus Valley area. They have suggested that it was most likely the result of a meteorite impact but have yet to produce the meteorite. A impact of that scale and magnitude would have left behind a meteorite or fragments of one along with a crater and other evidence, especially considering it’s young age(approx. 4,000 years) relative to geologic processes.
The interesting thing about Mohenjo-Daro is that there is actually a historical written account for what may have been responsible for the destruction of this ancient civilization.
One of the oldest written records of the Hindu religion, itself one of the oldest religions in the world, speak of gods flying in vehicles composed of dazzling light and intricately carved platforms called vimanas. These vimanas would engage in battles with each other, like modern day dogfights, and they fire energy beams of incredible power.
Sounds pretty crazy huh? But hey, it’s not any crazier then believing in an invisible man who lives in the sky. Who watches your every moment of every day and this invisible man has a list of ten things he does not want you to do. He loves you and he wants your money…Oh! And he made the world in six days! While that dude Joshua, uh, well, he stopped the sun by yelling at it. Don’t forget about Mr. Jesus who was born of a virgin and nullified natural laws to perform miracles.
Considering we already know of flying vehicles that have lights and fire weapons at each other such as the F-16, than I think it’s obvious which one of those ideas are the more absurd!
In the Hindu text known as the Mahabharata, there is a description of one of these vehicles:
“Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana [fast aircraft],
hurled a single projectile [rocket]
charged with the power of the Universe [nuclear device].
An incandescent column of smoke and flame,
as bright as ten thousand suns,
rose with all its splendor.
It was an unknown weapon,
an iron thunderbolt,
a gigantic messenger of death,
which reduced to ashes
the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
And then the results of this weapon is described:
The corpses were so burned
as to be unrecognizable.
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.
I don’t know about you, but to me this sounds like a perfect description of radiation sickness. Perhaps they accidentally and coincidentally wrote about atomic blasts in their fictional and mythical texts or perhaps these texts are not fiction and they may have been witness to what we know as a nuclear blast.
Some more excerpts:
A second passage.
“Dense arrows of flame,
like a great shower,
issued forth upon creation,
encompassing the enemy.
A thick gloom swiftly settled upon the Pandava hosts.
All points of the compass were lost in darkness.
Fierce wind began to blow
Clouds roared upward,
showering dust and gravel.
Birds croaked madly…
the very elements seemed disturbed.
The sun seemed to waver in the heavens
The earth shook,
scorched by the terrible violent heat of this weapon.
Elephants burst into flame
and ran to and fro in a frenzy…
over a vast area,
other animals crumpled to the ground and died.
From all points of the compass
the arrows of flame rained continuously and fiercely.” — The Mahabharata
From the Ramayana
”(It was a weapon) so powerful
that it could destroy the earth in an instant–
A great soaring sound in smoke and flames–
And on it sits death…” . — The Ramayana
