I promised to continue my story so... I know that it will be more that 50 lines.. bu please forgive me... i am only trying to explain the possible deformation of the skulls.. and it will not be nice to leave the story in half..
as I was saying in my last post...Mahabharata... they say it was writen in the 5th century BC.. but other say that it is way older...and the story is even older.. from the 8000 or 10000 BC! it is the stroy of the fightings between 2 royal families that were relatives... the Pandava and Kaurava and insice you will see talking about masive destraction weapons, similar (or better) to our nuclear weapons, that could kill an army of thousands!
the greatest of all these weapons could destroy worlds and civilizations completelly and it was called Pasupata!
the first who took it was Artzuna a great archer that Krishna liked a lot, and took it on behalf of the Pandavas! the knowledge of this weapon was given by Siva himself on the top of a mountain where Artzuna had come to find weapons that he and his brothers can take back their power! Siva saw that Artzuna was very brave and allowed him to ask a favor... and he asked for a unbeatable weapon! the god warned him by saying... "it can ruin the world... you can throw it not only by hand but by saying or thought (remote control??)... it is a weapon without any returns, nor limits and compasion! you will never going to get rid of it or give it back to me.." Artzuna continued to say that he wanted it! so Siva sent a huge flying chariot that hot air and bright lightswere coming out of it... the "chariot" took Artzuna toother planets far away! Earth was so tiny like a star! after passing thousands of flaming worlds, he was taken to Amaravati... a city in the center of the universe were he stayed for 5 years to learn the use of this weapon from the Gods and then to return back to Earth! so.. this is a space travel and a young man from earth was tought by alliens the use of nuclear weapons!!!!
after some time from his return.. (as had happent to USA and Soviet Union), both Pandavas and Kauravas had this weapon by any other way... so now.. both armies have this powerfull weapon... ok?
soon... they started fighting and in the battles... millions of warriors participated!
One of the families..(I think the Pandava's) lost her self control and desides to use this weapon.... the area where the weapon was used in the battle of Kourouksetra, is probably the nowdays Rajastan... a hude desert that almost nothing can grow on the ground.
let's see some of the lines of the poem... and you will see that it is talking about nuclear war!
"...it was only a projectile / that was hiding inside the power of the universe. / a blinding pillar of smoke and fire, / that was shining like thousands of Suns / was raised with glory to the sky...
It was an unknown weapon, / an iron thunder, / a gigantic messenger of Death that turned into ashes / the whole race/ of Vrisnis and Antakas
... the bodies were so burned / that you couldn't recognise them... / the nails and the hair of the survivors were falling, / the vessels were braking without a reason / and the feathers of the birds turned white.
after some hours, / all the food was infected... / ... the soldiers just to escape from the fire were entering in rivers / to wash themselves and their weapons."
now... the army of Kaurava fought back by using their own fearless weapons:
"... densely arrows of fire/ fell like rain above the earth, / surrounding the enemy.../ thick fog quickly sat over the armies of Pantdava's / all the marks of the horizon dissapeared in darkness. / Very strong winds started to blow. / clouds raised in the sky, / and started raining dust and pubbles.
the birds were croaking in panic.... / the elements of nature had been disturbed. / the Sun looked like it was about to die on the sky. / Earth shaked, / and burned from the heat of this weapon. / elephants took fire / and started runing furious... / in a huge land area... the animals fell on the ground and died...."
So... what do you say??? was that a nuclear war???
according to the poem... the battle lasted 18 days and 640 million soldiers were killed...
most of them from the huge weapons...
so... why not these skulls are just survivors who were diformed from the radio-activity???
as an end... I will say something about dr Openhaimer (father of nuclear weapons)...
he knew mahabharata very well.. and when he saw the first nuclear test he said a line form the Mahabharata poem... "and now I have become Death - the distructor of the worlds".
when in a press conferance that gave in the University of Rochester in 1952, 7 years after the nuclear test in Alamogordo (July 16th 1945), if this was the first atomic bomb ever thrown... he replyed... "Yes... at least in the Modern History"....
**** sorry for any grammar or spelling mistakes... I wrote directly here.. and it is quite late here in greece... 3 in the morning! I also tried to be as close as I could to 50 lines I hope I have done it!
I really hope to see more stories from other participants too! come on!
