Numerous evidence of Pre-Historic Nuclear War exists: Columns of Smoke Rose as if from a Mighty Furnace

by Brad Steiger

Ancient Indian Epics, especially the Mahabharata, document apparent pre-historic nuclear devastation and destruction, that is being verified by diverse scholars.

“Then the Lord rained down fire and tar from heaven upon Sodom and Gomorrah, and utterly destroyed them….” Genesis 19:24.

My previous article in The Canadian , in which I reflected upon my book Worlds Before Our Own, provoked dozens of inquiries from readers. LINK Some stated that one of the cable channels -- some thought it was the History Channel; others, Discovery; still others, National Geographic -- had presented “proof” that the “fused green glass” to be found in various areas had been created by meteoric air blasts rather than prehistoric nuclear wars.

I remain open to many theories of Earth‘s prehistory. One of those individuals prompted to write to me, who had the advantage of having actually read Worlds Before Our Own, stated that I present “in a clear and lucid style, information concerning anomalous archeological finds without the hyperbole usually associated with this type of material.”

While patches of “fused green glass” may in certain instances have been caused by air blasts from meteors, I wonder if such a natural phenomenon could have created all twenty-eight fields of blackened and shattered stones that cover as many as 7000 miles each in western Arabia. The stones are densely grouped, as if they might be the remains of cities, sharp-edged, and burned black. Experts have decreed that they are not volcanic in origin, but appear to date from the period when Arabia was thought to be a lush and fruitful land that suddenly became scorched into an instant desert.

What we know today as the Sahara Desert was once a tropical region of heavy vegetation, abundant rainfall, and several large rivers. Scientists have discovered areas of the desert in which soils which once knew the cultivated influence of plow and farmer are now covered by a thin layer of sand. Researchers have also found an enormous reservoir of water below the parched desert area. The source of such a large deposit of water could only have been the heavy rains from the period of time before a fiery devastation consumed the lush vegetation of the area.

On December 25, 2007, it was confirmed by a French scientist that excavations at the area of Khamis Bani Sa’ad in Tehema district of Hodeidah province have yielded over a thousand rare archaeological pieces dating back to 300,000 B.C.E. Before a dramatic climate change, the inhabitants at that time had been fishermen and had domesticated a number of animals no longer to be found in the region, including a species of horse currently found only in Middle Asia.

The Red Chinese have conducted atomic tests near Lob Nor Lake in the Gobi Desert, which have left large patches of the area covered with vitreous sand. But the Gobi has a number of other areas of glassy sand which have been known for thousands of years.

Albion W. Hart, one of the first engineers to graduate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was assigned a project in the interior of Africa. While he and his men were traveling to an almost inaccessible region, they had first to cross a great expanse of desert. At the time, he was puzzled and quite unable to explain a large area of greenish glass which covered the sands as far as he could see.

"Later on during his life," wrote Margarethe Casson in Rocks and Minerals (No. 396, 1972), "he passed by the White Sands area after the first atomic explosion there, and he recognized the same type of silica fusion which he had seen fifty years earlier in the African desert."

In 1947, in the Euphrates valley of southern Iraq, where certain traditions place the Garden of Eden and where the ancient inhabitants of Sumer encountered the man-god Ea, exploratory digging unearthed a layer of fused, green glass. Archaeologists could not restrain themselves from noting the resemblance that the several-thousand-year-old fused glass bore to the desert floor at White Sands, New Mexico, after the first nuclear blasts in modem times had melted sand and rock.

In the United States, the Mohave Desert has large circular or polygonal areas that are coated with a hard substance very much like opaque glass.

While exploring Death Valley in 1850, William Walker claimed to have come upon the ruins of an ancient city. An end of the large building within the rubble had had its stones melted and vitrified.

Walker went on to state that the entire region between the Gila and St. John rivers was spotted with ruins. In each of the ancient settlements he had found evidence that they had been burned out by fire intense enough to have liquefied rock. Paving blocks and stone houses had been split with huge cracks, as if seared by some gigantic cleaver of fire.

Perhaps even more than the large areas of fused green glass, I am intrigued by the evidence of vitrified cities and forts, such as those discovered by Walker.

There are ancient hill forts and towers in Scotland, Ireland, and England in which the stoneworks have become calcined because of the great heat that had been applied. There is no way that lightning could have caused such effects.

Other hill forts from the Lofoten Islands off northern Norway to the Canary Islands off northwest Africa have become “fused forts.” Erich A. von Fange comments that the “piled boulders of their circular walls have been turned to glass… by some intense heat.”

Catal Huyukin in north-central Turkey, thought to be one of the oldest cities in the world, appears, according to archaeological evidence, to have been fully civilized and then, suddenly, to have died out. Archaeologists were astonished to find thick layers of burned brick at one of the levels, called VIa. The blocks had been fused together by such intense heat that the effects had penetrated to a depth more than a meter below the level of the floors, where it carbonized the earth, the skeletal remains of the dead, and the burial gifts that had been interred with them. All bacterial decay had been halted by the tremendous heat.

When a large ziggurat in Babylonia was excavated, it presented the appearance of having been struck by a terrible fire that had split it down to its foundation. In other parts of the ruins, large sections of brickwork had been scorched into a vitrified state. Several masses of brickwork had been rendered into a completely molten state. Even large boulders found near the ruins had been vitrified.

The royal buildings at the north Syrian site known as Alalakh or Atchana had been so completely burned that the very core of the thick walls were filled with bright red, crumbling mud-bricks. The mud and lime wall plaster had been vitrified, and basalt wall slabs had, in some areas, actually melted.

Between India's Ganges River and the Rajmahal Hills are scorched ruins which contain large masses of stone that have been fused and hollowed. Certain travelers who have ventured to the heart of the Indian forests have reported ruins of cities in which the walls have become huge slabs of crystal, due to some intense heat.

The ruins of the Seven Cities, located near the equator in the Province of Piaui, Brazil, appear to be the scene of a monstrous chaos. Since no geological explanation has yet been construed to fit the evidence before the archaeologists, certain of those who have investigated the site have said that the manner in which the stones have been dried out, destroyed, and melted provokes images of Sodom and Gomorrah.

French researchers discovered the evidence of prehistoric spontaneous nuclear reaction at the Oklo mine, Pierrelatte, in Gabon, Africa. Scientists found that the ore of this mine contained abnormally low proportions of U235 such as found only in depleted uranium fuel taken from atomic reactors. According to those who examined the mine, the ore also contained four rare elements in forms similar to those found in depleted uranium.

Although the modern world did not experience atomic power until the 1940s, there is an astonishing amount of evidence that nuclear effects may have occurred in prehistoric times leaving behind sand melted into glass in certain desert areas, hill forts with vitrified portions of stone walls, of the remains of ancient cities that had been destroyed by what appeared to have been extreme heat-far beyond that which could have been scorched by the torches of primitive armies. In each instance, the trained and experienced archaeologists who encountered such anomalous finds have stressed the point that none of these catastrophes had been caused by volcanoes, by lightning, by crashing comets, or by conflagrations set by humankind.

Sinai peninsular area of apparent nuclear war activity.

Zecharia Sitchin (1985) devotes an entire chapter to a discussion of nuclear warfare in ancient times in Mesopotamia and the Sinai peninsula. In this book he also suggests the destruction of the Sinai “space facilities” by nuclear weapons. He offers as evidence:

“…the immense cavity in the center of the Sinai and the resulting fracture lines (see figure), the vast surrounding flat area covered with blackened stones, traces of radiation south of the Dead Sea, the new extent and shape of the Dead Sea – is still there, four thousand years later”.

“Where are the Aluminum artifacts?”

Fred and Barney were environmentalists. They recycled EVERYTHING! Truly obsessive-compulsives, and blindingly disfunctional because of it. Unfortunately, they spent so much time cleaning up, the literally starved to death. True, it was an evolutionary dead end, but it left the earth pristine for us. Now, we’re not nearly as neat, but we have survived, and continue to increase our population base.

It just goes to show, if you’re kind of sloppy, you’ll live a lot longer, and your species is far more likely to survive.

I had a PhD from Bombay teach 3 of my undergrad 3 hour courses.

I don’t have any doubt of such things.

However, at some point . . . THE WORLD WAS VOID AND WITHOUT FORM . . . and God started over . . .

AND THATS’ what WE have to contend with.

The ancient past is curious and has plenty of mystery about it.

And, it is inconsequential. It doesn’t add a thing to my relationship with God. It need not subtract anything from my relationship with God.

What I do with Jesus is the critical issue.

Probably not that difficult for cultures that also had flying ships evidently akin to current UFO phenomena.

See above.

More than plausible to me. Have read/been taught a lot about the India ancient cultures and their nukes and flying machines.

I don’t need any of your proofs of pre-historic nuclear wars and the way you worship them as idols; I believe in the ONE TRUE nuclear war on FAITH alone.

uhh, sorry, I got lost over here on this thread after wandering over here from the Shroud of Turin thread....

The assertion is made that the glass expanses could not have been made by comets or meteros. In fact, the right composition of object screaming in to the atmosphere at a certain size would explode prior to impact and the heat released could certainly have made glass expanses. By starting the question with a specious assertion, conspiracy is supported ... speciously.

As I wrote: I don’t generally believe this stuff but I keep an open mind about it and it is much fun to read about and speculate on.

This article is prime reason for not believing everything you read on the internet. Tekites (the fused ‘glass’) are also associated with meteor impacts, so no suprises here anymore now that science has recognized that we’ve been hit more than was originally understood. I could take more time to evaluate the geologic settings - however there is a glaring absence of references (First hint!) to all that to occur.

However the author of this material - Brad Steiger - is an acknowledge ‘expert’ (according to one of his reviewers) in the paranormal. He descibes werewolves, his own encountere with a ufo, and new-age prayer and meditation (authored by his wife). He is endorsed by the Ancient American Magazine, a pseudo-scientific journal that keeps tossing demostrated frauds forward as what ever.

From such, we are advised by scripture to stay away from.

When God decides to destroy a city he does not need to use nuclear bombs.

That's what Democrats are for.

While I generally agree with your statements - I enjoy listening to those who have alternate explanations so I do not keep away.

I’m fascinated by the underwater ruins near Okinawa ... Nomagumi? Graham Hancock’s beautiful photographer wife took extensive photos of that site a few years ago.

Me too - check out the link I provided.

The UNDERWORLD thesis of Hancock’s is that during near the end of the Ice Age there arose an advanced stone age coastal civilization - not advanced like they had cars or lasers but advances like the Egyptians and when the great melt happened this far flung coastal civilization/empire was drowned giving rise to the Atlantis myth and other flood myths with the survivors of the coastal flood moving inland to be among the less advanced humans of the inner continents who viewed the more advances coastal dwellers as gods or near gods. What survived are racial memories and some passed down knowledge turned to myth and legends but for the most part real evidence for this civilization is buried under the seas.

Plenty true.

Though I do try to keep some slight awareness of the waterfront the enemy is operating in.

However, the evidence from the ancient culture in India is a lot more conclusive with all manner of proper measures, readings etc. as well as literary documentation, designs of air craft etc.

Graham Hancock and his wife are of those interesting people with whom I would enjoy a long dinner and after dinner conversation. His adventures around the world are interesting to follow. There are clues all over the world, including the Giza Plateau, which point to civilization operating for long periods with much lower sea levels ... like the staircases which descend deeplyly into the earth at Obiados, with most of the staircases now under ground water. The extensive basalt fortress in the Polynesian Islands (?) is another strange anomoly.

Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the author does not mention that he or anybody else has actually collected or analyzed any of the glass from these locations.... only old reports and anecdotes of "large glassy areas."

How very convenient.
