Ancient Civilization ‘IF’ There was a Nuclear war?

Hello welcome to If videos on history mystery
and the unknown. Its the first video of 2018
I hope you all had an amazing new year and my best wishes to you for the year ahead. In 2017 we took a look at ancient civilizations
and asked if we are the first to have possessed advanced technologies. In the time between that video and this, there
have been many more discoveries that are shining a light on these lost peoples. From the discovery of an ancient city in a
valley of the Mosquitia mountains, in Honduras, to the uncovering of a breath-taking temple
in ancient Sumeria. The science slowly rolls on and seems to be
confirming what many believers in advanced ancient civilization already knew. We are not the first! So if we are not the first what happened to
these once great cultures, why do we have so little evidence of them today? There are a many ideas as to what led to the
downfall of these cultures from the legends of a great floods found in today’s history
to meteor strikes and even war. Today we take a look at the later. It would seem almost fitting that today, as
we reach such a high level of technological ability we find ourselves teetering on the
edge of a third world war. Is there an inbuilt reset button to human
the race keeping us from reaching beyond a certain point of societal development? That philosophical idea can be explored in
another video, post a message in the comments below if you would like to see that. So did war wipe out the ancients, whom was
that war with and what weapons could cause such complete destruction? There are theorists that have claimed to have
discovered references to a large scale war occurring in the past over 4000 years ago. Along with the claim of massive conflict,
they say evidence can be found at many ancient sites and in many ancient texts that our ancestors
had and used highly advanced weaponry. And that these weapons may have been atomic
in nature. Probably the most well-known of these texts
is the Mahabharata. The story tells of a war between the gods
in which weapons never before seen, were used to level cities and kill billions. This war was said to have lasted 18 days leaving
1.6 billion dead. The book itself reads:
“It was as if the elements had been unleashed. The sun spun round. Scorched by the incandescent heat of the weapon,
the world reeled in fever. Elephants were set on fire by the heat and
ran to and fro in a frenzy to seek protection from the terrible violence. The water boiled, the animals died, the enemy
was mown down and the raging of the blaze made the trees collapse in rows as in a forest
fire. The elephants made a fearful trumpeting and
sank dead to the ground over a vast area. Horses and war chariots were burnt up and
the scene looked like the aftermath of a conflagration. Thousands of chariots were destroyed, then
deep silence descended on the sea. The winds began to blow and the earth grew
bright. It was a terrible sight to see. The corpses of the fallen were mutilated by
the terrible heat so that they no longer looked like human beings. Never before have we seen such a ghastly weapon
and never before have we heard of such a weapon. (C. Roy, Drona Parva 1889.) And in another passage there are yet more
references: “The very elements seemed to be perturbed. The sun seemed to turn. The universe, scorched with heat, seemed to
be in a fever. The elephants and other creatures of the land,
scorched by the energy of that weapon, ran in fright, breathing heavily and desirous
of protection against that terrible force. The very waters heated, the creatures residing
in that element, O Bharata, became exceedingly uneasy and seemed to burn. From all the points of the compass, cardinal
and subsidiary, from the firmament and the very earth, showers of sharp and fierce arrows
fell and issued with the impetuosity of Garuda or the wind. Struck and burnt by those shafts of Aswatthaman
that were all endued with the impetuosity of the thunder, the hostile warriors fell
down like trees burnt down by a raging fire. Huge elephants, burnt by that weapon, fell
down on the earth all around, uttering fierce cries loud as the rumblings of the clouds. Other huge elephants, scorched by that fire,
ran hither and thither, and roared aloud in fear, as if in the midst of a forest conflagration. The steeds, O king, and the cars also, burnt
by the energy of that weapon, looked, O sire, like the tops of trees burnt in a forest-fire. […] We had never before, O king, heard of
or seen the like of that weapon which Drona’s son created in wrath on that occasion. […] Burnt by the energy of Aswatthaman’s
weapon, the forms of the slain could not be distinguished.” This description sounds very much like a nuclear
impact of coarse using the language of that time. We now have to ask the question, if such a
catastrophic war did actually happen what physical evidence remains to corroborate these
writings? We can look to an ancient city in Pakistan
called “Mohenjo Daro” This site is not a new discovery it was uncovered
back in the 1920’s. When the sight was being excavated some usual
things were found. As the dig reached the ancient street level,
skeletons were discovered scattered throughout the city, many of them holding hands and laid
in the streets. What ever happened to them must have been
instant and horrible, but what had taken place? To add to the question many of these bodies
had no apparent cause of a physically violent death. And the odd fact that we are interested in
is that these skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, their radiation levels
match bodies recovered form Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bomb sites. But is this just one sight on which something
terrible fell some 2000 years before Christ? No, many other cities in the region show strange
findings like vitrification the process when great heat converts minerals into glass. And the discovery of an epicenter where everything
was crystallized, fused or melted indicates a huge blast occurred. And since there is no indication of volcanic
activity at Mohenjo-Daro or any of the other sites, the intense heat needed to melt clay
vessels and alike can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon. We need to ask what type of weapon or what
technology did they possess to create such incredibly high temperatures? If it was a weapon who built it? If it was technological what could have happened
to create such heat and radiation? Let me know you’re thought in the comments
below. If you believe Mahabharata got it right hit
that like button. Please remember share the video with your
friends, catch us on social media And if you could hit the little red that doesn’t
launch nukes but subscribes to the channel that would be great. I am hoping that this year together we can
really grow, and I can deliver better quality content and more frequent videos for you guys. As always thanks so much for watching
Until next time.

  1. Does anyone else find it odd that the highest results on Google related to this topic are focus on debunking the event with questionable logic?

  2. why we are still at the edge of 3rd world war … when will it start !!!! and what is taking so long for it to start …. let the show begin

  3. i am subscribing you … hopping that you will come with other such contents ….. also make video on Dwarka and Kumari Kandham
