Proof of time travel? Bizarre claims nuclear bomb was detonated in India 12,000 years ago

A NUCLEAR bomb blast killed half a million people in India 12,000 years ago, according to shocking claims being made.

Videos uploaded by conspiracy theory and UFO websites suggest there is evidence of the ancient blast happening in a desert region near Jodhpur.

Website was the latest to link to one of the videos today.

The "evidence" is alleged to be based on "writings" in ancient texts and an area where high levels of radiation were allegedly detected.

Conspiracy theory website said: "Hindu texts dating from thousands of years ago seem to suggest that some kind of highly advanced weapon resembling an atomic bomb was set off on the Earth some twelve thousand of years ago."

The theory is based on alleged passages from the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, Sanskrit epics said to be written in around the 8th or 9th century BC, about the Kurukshetra War and battle between Rama and the demon Ravana respectively. added: "Could an atomic bomb have gone off on Earth 12,000 years ago? Some of the passages from the Mahabharata suggest a nuclear conflict."

    There are ancient cities in Pakistan that not only apparently remain radioactive to this day, but have pits of glass, the kind of which would be found in times of intense heat

    is there also not evidence of this kind of thing happening in Siberia?.. long before nuclear Bombs were invented

    The Pakistan city (Mohenjo Daro?) is interesting, but I think the arguments against the nuclear theory are worth considering in that case.

    Rational Wiki, in spite of their open disdain, has some points that I feel are worth thinking about:

    1.  Beyond the bodies themselves pseudohistorians make a series of claims about radioactivity levels in the area. These claims range from a radioactive dust covering the whole city, to the bodies themselves being "among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki."[5] The problem with these claims is that they are so vaguely sourced it's impossible to find the original claims to verify it. Other radioactivity based claims are easier to refute.

    For example, those making them might require some education on the concept of radioactive half-life and its operation over a timespan of 3,500 years. That's over 115 half-lives for Strontium-90 and Cesium-137, the main sources of radioactivity in fallout. 115 half-lives results in a dilution of 4.1538x10^34 to one — beyond homeopathic dilutions. And that's even before dilution by wind scattering.

    If fallout radiation is caused mainly by things that can't remain radioactive for nearly that long, then either the half-lives of radioactive sources are actually not known, the source was something other than a nuclear explosion as we understand them, or it was made up as part of a hoax or some other deception.

    2. One common claim is that the sand around the city had vitrified similar to the trinity site in New Mexico. However, what was actually found was the dumping ground for broken pots that were often made by vitrifying sand in a kiln.

    So it seems the glass was just normal glass from craft works.  Glassmaking was certainly known a long time ago.  It's traced back to around 3000BC or thereabouts, so it can't be impossible.

    3.  One difficulty with the nuclear blast claim at Mohenjo-daro is immediately apparent when photographs of the dig site are examined. The buildings were made with kiln fired mud bricks. Some of the walls are still 15 feet high. How an unreinforced mud brick wall withstands a nuclear blast never seems to be addressed.

    I find that to be a pretty good point.  Could ancient mud brick walls withstand the shockwave of a nuclear bomb?  Pictures of Hiroshima after its bombing show some structures that might be brick more or less intact, but those are structures that were built with materials and construction methods of the 19th and 20th centuries. 

    For example, modern cement was around and in use at that time whereas it was not prior to the 18th century.  The Romans and Minoans had lime-based adhesives for construction that served a similar role, if not as effectively.  That said, neither the Romans nor the Minoans were in Pakistan in 1500BC.  Mudbricks are also very simple construction materials anyone can make after brief instruction, whereas modern bricks like the "extruded brick" of the Industrial era require machinery to produce, use more complex materials and are more resilient.

    Even those bricks would probably be questionable in the face of a nuke, especially at close range.  Looking at photos of European cities in ruins after conventional bombing in WWII shows that brick isn't exactly bomb-proof.  A tank could drive through a modern brick wall, and does a tank produce less force than a nuclear shockwave?

    I wonder what the truth of Mohenjo Daro is.  Hoax?  Misunderstanding?  Mysterious event beyond our current knowledge?
