Nobody, except for a small clique of fringe historians* (most of them, Indian) believes there was any kind of civilization in India between 10,000 and 6,000BC. The earliest buildings appeared in different parts of the world around 7000BC, in the neolithic age. At 6000BC, there were likely between one and two million people in the whole world. Besides, I don't believe a 10-20 kilton nuke can take out half a million people unless for some crazy reason, the population density in the middle of the Rajasthan desert 10,000 years ago was comparable to an densely populated urban area today (the city of Jodhpur has a population of about a million people today, and less than 50,000 a century ago).Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people.
There are descriptions of hundreds of different weapons in the Mahabharata (which was written around 1000BC according to most historians; Ganguli might be one of those that insist it was written closer to 5000BC.) There's one weapon that bring torrential rain, one which rains down fire from the skies, one which brings heavy winds, another that digs tunnels into the earth, one that wipes out every armed person in sight (you defeat it by dropping your weapons)...I'm sure you can find an analog to any modern day device in the Mahabharata if you use a little imagination.Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli says that Indian sacred writings are full of such descriptions, which sound like an atomic blast as experienced in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He says references mention fighting sky chariots and final weapons. An ancient battle is described in the Drona Parva, a section of the Mahabharata. "The passage tells of combat where explosions of final weapons decimate entire armies, causing crowds of warriors with steeds and elephants and weapons to be carried away as if they were dry leaves of trees," says Ganguli.
This was my immediate impression.Afterall - neither Hiroshima nor Nagasaki had to be abandoned after WWII.
I agree, but there are enough odd bits floating around that I was wondering if there was any analytical information supporting the claim.Sounds like nonsense. But that may only be because it's presented poorly.

Love the posts by wisdumb in that thread....
No real cleanup would be possible if it had been necessary, which it wasn't. You'd pretty much have to scoop up the entire landmass and dump it into the ocean to get rid of it.NoTime said:OTOH, given my understanding of real estate values in Japan, the cost of any necessary remedial action would most likely be worth the price.
I have no idea of what activities were required to reclaim the areas or what would remain if no action was taken.
This looks betterI found a good debunking, see the 4th post down by a member named byrd.
[PLAIN said:http://www.philipcoppens.com/bestevidence.html]Surendra[/PLAIN] [Broken] Gadekar also investigated the conditions of villagers at Rawatbhatta in Rajasthan and discovered gross radiation-related deformities. We note that Rawatbhatta is in the same region as the discovery of the “ancient warfare” site. But Gadekar did not find evidence of ancient warfare, but evidence of modern negligence: wood that had been used in the power plant, had then “somehow” made his way into society, where it was subsequently used as wood for a fire. This in itself was a minor incident, but could there have been more serious incidents, whereby it was decided to deflect attention from the present to the ancient past?
Do you know that or is it just a guess on your part?No real cleanup would be possible if it had been necessary, which it wasn't. You'd pretty much have to scoop up the entire landmass and dump it into the ocean to get rid of it.
Conspiracy theorists plagarizing other conspiracy theorists is not evidence.This looks better
Rather odd page though.
Not clearly for or against.
We discussed this in a recent thread in P&WA, but because the bombs were air-bursts, there was little fallout concentrated in the area. Here's an article describing it: http://www.uic.com.au/nip29.htmDo you know that or is it just a guess on your part?
I couldn't find much on the details.
I did see that a lot of money was spent.
:rofl:Conspiracy theorists plagarizing other conspiracy theorists is not evidence.
Interesting. Thanks for the pointers.We discussed this in a recent thread in P&WA, but because the bombs were air-bursts, there was little fallout concentrated in the area. Here's an article describing it: http://www.uic.com.au/nip29.htm
You won't find any info on decontamination because there wasn't any.
Here's an article from the other thread describing the fallout from a much larger weapon (1MT). Notice on page 11, where it says that residual radiation would be back to peacetime levels in 10 years.... http://www.fas.org/nuke/intro/nuke/7906/790604.pdf
I like the fact that possibly nobody googled information about the area until byrd.
