I believe most of us are familiar with the fact that nuclear power is power obtained from the nucleus of an atom, the central cluster of neutron and proton particles. Nuclear power is based on Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc2, which says that matter can be turned into energy, a lot of energy. The actual process used is nuclear fission, in which the atomic nucleus is split, releasing energy. Nuclear fission is also used in the original nuclear bombs, as discussed in the history of plutonium.
And seven years after the nuclear detonations in New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, the ‘father of the atomic bomb’ was asked during a lecture if he had been the first person to conduct atomic tests. His reply was: ‘Yes, in modern times.
“The blast did result in a formation of a glassy residue on the desert floor after the plutonium-based nuclear bomb. This glass was analysed and it was found that it was composed of quartz grains and feldspar with small amounts of calcite, hornblende and augite in a matrix of sandy clay. The heat of the blast had caused the sand on the surface to melt. The glassy residue was given the name Trinitite, Atomsite and is also known as Alamogordo Glass.”
Although at the time his answer was considered cryptic or at least vague, Dr. Oppenheimer was alluding to a series of ancient Hindu texts that described the occurrence of large-scale catastrophes that did not correspond to any recorded natural disasters.
More specifically, he was referring to the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient Sanskrit writing that portrayed the detonation and effects of a powerful “unknown weapon.”
This subject is obstinately avoided by the scientific community but there is evidence supporting events such as this one. This evidence routinely comes in the form of fused glass fragments found in many deserts all over the world.
These pieces of glass closely resemble those found at the Alamogordo atomic proving grounds, the place where the modern world’s first nuclear device was detonated. Desert glass forms when temperatures in excess of 3,300 degrees Fahrenheit (1,800º Celsius) cause the sand grains to melt and fuse together.
They were first described by Patrick Clayton who encountered them while surveying the Sahara in 1932. Clayton discovered huge chunks of yellowish-green glass in the sand and presented them to fellow geologists.
A possible explanation came almost 50 years later when one of the engineers that helped create the atomic bomb was revisiting the testing site in New Mexico. He noticed glass fragments that were similar to those he had seen in the desert, albeit much smaller.
Being open-minded, he made a connection. Being an engineer, he did the math and was astounded by the results.
In order to produce desert glass the size of the pieces found by Clayton, the explosion had to have been 10,000 more powerful than the one in New Mexico.
A very plausible explanation was proposed: the glass had formed due to asteroid/ comet/ giant meteorite impacts. Such impacts would certainly fit the profile as they cold easily produce the tremendous amount of heat required to fuse silicon crystals.
But an impact that great would also leave behind a noticeably large crater and no such craters were found in the desert.
Glass was found in the Sahara, the Mojave and the Desert of Libya but neither sonar nor satellite imagery could find any accompanying craters.
Furthermore, the Libyan glass had a very high purity and clarity (over 99 percent). In the case of meteorite impact, the silicon is fused together with iron from the meteorite itself as well as other adulterants.
When we piece together all the clues, the picture becomes clearer and we have to ask ourselves: is it truly impossible that ancient civilizations reached a technological level similar to others?
Have we truly explored all possibilities?
After all, depictions of terrible weapons capable to obliterate entire cities are found in the legends of many cultures, separated by both space and time. Were those depictions nothing more than the work of human imagination envisioning the superlative weapon?
What about the physical evidence then? Where does it fit?
We must not forget, one of the “best candidates” for best evidence of the atom – nuclear warfare, which according to Professor Sitchin is precisely what occurred in the Middle East in the third millennium BC.
The Nile and the Sinai Peninsula In support for this conclusion, he has pointed towards and relied upon photographs of the Sinai Peninsula, taken from space. Which actually shows an immense cavity and crack in its surfaces, showing us where the nuclear explosion has taken place.
Professor Sitchin said that the area which is strewn with crushed, burnt and blackened rocks, and did contain a highly unusual ratio of isotope uranium-235, “indicating in expert opinions exposure to sudden immense heat of nuclear origin”
In my opinion, we can not any longer consider ourselves the first and only civilization on Earth to have split the atom, to do that is nothing short of absolute vanity and we all know where that leads to in the end.
