Question by Nilesh: Article:- Nuclear Warfare in Ancient Era….Very Interesting?
The descriptions given of these weapons in the ancient verses—their force, the characteristics of their destruction and the after-affects—sound disturbingly modern. The texts describe:

*The thunderbolt of Indra was endowed with the force of thousand-eyed Indra’s thunder.
*The bolt of death measured three cubits by six. It was the unknown weapon, the iron thunderbolt of Indra, the messenger of death.
*The projectile was charged with all the power of the Universe.
*The Agneya weapon was capable of being resisted by none of the very gods themselves.
*The Brahma-danda or Brahma’s rod was even more powerful.
*Adwattan let loose the blazing missile of smokeless fire.
*The missile burst with the power of thunder.
*The flying missile ruined whole cities filled with forts.
*The three cities of the Vrishnis and Andhakas were destroyed together in one instant.
*Thousands of war vehicles fell down on either side.
*Unborn children were killed in the womb.
*Corpses were so burnt they were no longer recognizable.
*The gaze of the Kapilla weapon was powerful enough to burn fifty thousand men to ashes.

In January, 1992 a news report was published concerning the discovery of a three-square mile area of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, located ten miles west of Jodhpur . The development of a housing project in this area had to be abandoned because of the high incidents of recurring cancer and birth defects.

A nuclear power plant recently built in the region was thought to be the culprit, but a five-member scientific team, headed by project foreman Lee Hundley, dispatched to study the mystery found a very different source. They eventually unearthed the charred remains of buildings thought to be at least eight to twelve millennia old which were once inhabited by perhaps as many as half a million people.

The prehistoric city had all the appearance—and the tell-tale radioactive residue—of having been destroyed by a nuclear weapon the scientists estimated was about the same size as that which destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.

Archaeologist Francis Taylor, “It’s so mind-boggling to imagine that some civilization had nuclear technology before we did. The radioactive ash adds credibility to the ancient Indian records that describe atomic warfare.”

The archaeological expedition, which carried out excavations near the Indian settlement of Mohenjo-Daro in the beginning of the 1900s, uncovered the ruins of a big ancient town. The town belonged to one of the most developed civilizations in the world.

Scientists Davneport and Vincenti put forward an amazing theory. They stated the ancient town had been ruined with a nuclear blast. They found big stratums of clay and green glass. Apparently, archaeologists supposed, high temperature melted clay and sand and they hardened immediately afterwards. Similar stratums of green glass can also found in Nevada deserts after every nuclear explosion.

A hundred years have passed since the excavations in Mohenjo-Daro. The modern analysis showed, the fragments of the ancient town had been melted with extremely high temperature – not less than 1,500 degrees centigrade. Researchers also found the strictly outlined epicenter, where all houses were leveled. Destructions lessened towards the outskirts. Dozens of skeletons were found in the area of Mohenjo-Daro – their radioactivity exceeded the norm almost 50 times.

Erich Von Daniken author of the International Bestseller book, Chariots of The Gods, writes:

” For example, how did the chronicler of the Mahabharata know that a weapon capable of punishing a country with a twelve years’ drought could exist? And powerful enough to kill the unborn in their mothers womb? This ancient Indian epic, the Mahabharata, is more comprehensive, and even at a conservative estimate its original core is at least 5,000 years old. It is well worth reading this epic in the light of the present day knowledge.

In the Mahabharata – Musala Parva book 8:

“The unknown weapon is radiant lightning, a devastating messenger of death, which turned all the relation of Vrishni and Andhaka to ashes. Their calcined bodies were unrecognizable. Those who escaped lost their hair and nails. Crockery broke without cause; birds turned white. In a very short time food was poisonous. The lightning subsided and became fine ash.”

Even Imagination needs something to start off.
Westners didn’t believe in Yoga, Law of Interconnectedness, Cause and Effect, Ayurveda untill it was scientifically proved.

*)The first Aeroplane took off in Mumbai, Chowpathy which was made by Bapuji Talpade, a Sanskrit Scholar in 1895. He studies the laws of Aviation from ‘Vaimanik Shastra.’ The Aeroplane is named ‘Marutsakha’ which is still present in British Museum.

*)In 2004, CERN, Geneva a 2m long statue of Natraja was unvieled which is still present. “Natraja” means Cosmic Dancer.

*)NASA’s ion engine is based on the Vedic Texts. And, NASA will be soon echoing Sanskrit Syllabales in Space.
Not every thing which is not proved can be considered false, Vedic era was the most scientific era.
@U235_PORTS, you are it will require electricity, Sage Agastya has given a wonderfull method to make electricity, & by the way let me tell you that many of the sanskrit scriptures were burnt down by Mughal Emperors.

I do have one of the Upanishads were it is clearly mentioned that water can be used for the purpose of electricity generation.

Question by Ricardo H: what kind of genre is this story? does it sound interesting? Do you think it’s short story or novel material?
A man, heartbroken years ago, decides to fulfill his career goals and succeeds but with an inexplicable emptiness in his heart. One day, in his horribly simple life, he wakes up and finds out that there is no one in his neighborhood. On the way to work, he finds out that the entire city has been mysteriously abandoned – everything left behind intact -. He enjoys the abandoning for a while, but with no one to share with, it is pointless. He decides to visit his ex wife and figure out the reason as to why she had left him. He has to travel for long distances alone and realizes the whole country – maybe world – is abandoned…but not entirely, on his journey he encounters an old man that is going to the same city he is, and a child that wants to go back to where he’s from. He finally reaches his destination after several “human” conflicts with the old man and child and figures both mysteries: why there is no one, and why she (wife) left him.

Answer by mace_skywalker_01
Actually, I think that depends on the “Why she left him” and “Why he is alone in the world” questions. What was the cause If it was supernatural or alien influenced, the sci-fi. I`d probably say sci-fi anyway considering that only 3 ppl being in the world seems pretty fictatious. ^_~

Palin an interesting study, if not a viable candidate
WASHINGTON — The Sarah Palin chronicles seem destined to go on forever despite the polls that show her near the bottom of likely choices for the presidential nomination and the constant barrage of national media analysis warning us that she isn’t fit for the White House and has no chance of getting there.

Question by Topher: What do you consider the most interesting question in neuroscience today and why?
Feel free to tell me one or two of them.
I’m just bored/interested. Fine line between the two, can’t really tell which is which.

Best answer:

Answer by John P
Understanding cognition

How memories are stored and recalled (interesting studies came out recently in patients with epilepsy where certain neurons fired before someone recalled a specific memory)

The brain (human brain) especially is incredibly hard to study for ethical reasons, but there are many neuroscientists out there doing good work that can only help the rest of the human race.

Question by claire: What is an easy and interesting research topic dealing with the counterculture of the 1960′s?
This is for a college course so it can be basically anything. I am just having trouble deciding on what to do it on because I need it to have a lot of information, yet I want to be interested in what I am researching. Thanks =)

Best answer:

Answer by Lynn C
Was America really trying colonize Vietnam? (I.e. the counter culture accused America of being an imperialistic power wanting to take over the government of Vietnam). Was the Vietnam War justified? Should the deserters have been brought to trial? Did the influence of the counter culture help to end the war, or prolong it? What was the difference between Nixon’s policies and LBJ’s policies. What are the effects of LBJ’s Great Society programs in today’s world? What’s the difference between the music of the counter culture and today’s music? What affect does the 60′s counter culture have on government today? Did the 60′s counter culture begin America’s downslide into communism? Are they today’s communist leaders in Obama’s government?

Some of these topics may get you in trouble with your professor so you’ll have to be politically correct or you will be considered a nut case if you tell the truth.
