6.14 – MYSTERIOUS DEVICES (6.27.14)

DEADLY WEAPONS [15e]

An unmanned aerial vehicle hurtles across the sky. It travels at supersonic speeds, spitting fire, launching deadly missiles, programmed to seek and destroy. The effect is devastating. High-tech warfare at its most lethal. But what could be a page stolen from a U.S. military black project is actually a description written down over 2,500 years ago in the sacred Hindu text known as the Mahabharata.

“When it comes to the ancient Indian accounts, they’re really eyewitness testimony of the gods fighting.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“When you read the ancient Hindu epics, they talk about horrific weapons. Missiles and atomic weapons, massive laser weapons that are melting and devastating entire cities.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“I refuse to think that our ancestors came up with these stories out of thin air. When writing was first invented, they wrote down their history. The first things that were ever written down were actual events.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

How is it that some of the earliest written accounts of warfare describe sophisticated weaponry that humans wouldn’t develop for thousands of years? For the answer, Ancient Astronaut Theorists point to numerous descriptions of deadly weapons found throughout the Mahabharata. Many strikingly similar to those used by the military today. One example are the incendiary weapons wielded by Vishnu, which are specially equipped to find their targets.

“Vishnu has a flying guided missile, the Narayanastra. And once it is launched, it will destroy everything that is moving. So, you know, according to the description, it is a motion detecting weapon, which is pretty much like our modern weaponry. There is also a weapon that is heat-seeking.”

– Deepak Shimkhada, Ph.D.
(Adjunct Prof. of Religion, Claremont Graduate Univ.),
(Prof. of Hindu Studies, Claremont Lincoln Univ.,
School of Theology)

“Heat-seeking is a very effective way of finding something. You would fire a missile from behind one aircraft at an aircraft in front of you, specifically targeted against the hot engine. And then you were able to move off from behind the airplane, and the heat-seeker would still be able to find the target.”

– Maj. Gen. Robert S. Dickman, USAF, Ret.
(Exec. Dir., American Inst. of Aeronautical & Astronautics)

“I am aware that there are forces of nature. You’ve got thunder, lightning, earthquakes. But how would you go from witnessing that to a description of heat-seeking missiles?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

In addition to guided missiles, the Mahabharata is filled with accounts of other sophisticated weapons wielded by the gods.

“In the Mahabharata, 46 different types of weapons are described. And each one has a specific function. The Pashupatastra is a weapon that actually multiplies into seven different arrows. So, then it hits seven different targets at the same time. Salva is an anti-god. He can make his vehicle disappear. So, we’re talking about a flying object that is stealth. And he also can put people into sleep. So, we’re perhaps talking about nerve gas.”

– Deepak Shimkhada, Ph.D.
(Adjunct Prof. of Religion, Claremont Graduate Univ.),
(Prof. of Hindu Studies, Claremont Lincoln Univ.,
School of Theology)

“They talk about weapons that are so high-tech, that it’s Could only be from extraterrestrials.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But of all the weapons described in the Mahabharata, perhaps the most deadly was a device called the Brahmastra. A weapon that the texts warned was never to be used.

“Brahmastra is described as the ultimate weapon. Once it is launched, it will simply burn everything. So, it will incinerate the entire Universe. We’re talking about a nuclear blast a hundredfold magnitude of the bomb that we have seen or experienced in our own times. Should never be used. And yet someone was going to make use of that Brahmastra. So, that’s the dilemma that the books talks about in the Mahabharata. India now has a rocket program, and one of their rockets is called Shakti. Shakti means goddess energy. This is also another divine weapon.  Indians are now sort of going back to their text or their mythology and they’re reliving it by their modern technology.”

– Deepak Shimkhada, Ph.D.
(Adjunct Prof. of Religion, Claremont Graduate Univ.),
(Prof. of Hindu Studies, Claremont Lincoln Univ.,
School of Theology)

Is it possible that alien beings visiting the earth thousands of years ago dealt with the same issues of nuclear annihilation that humans are dealing with today? And might the deadly weapons currently being deployed by the world’s military really be recreations of weapons first used on earth by extraterrestrials in the ancient past? Perhaps. But then it should also be possible to predict mankind’s military future by searching through still more ancient texts.
