Ancient texts describe powerful weapons that the gods used on Earth thousands—even perhaps tens of thousands—of years ago. “…An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor. It was an unknown weapon and iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race…”
What if ancient civilizations misinterpreted alien visitors as ‘Gods’?
When we take a look at history and read through the countless ancient texts left behind by different civilizations across the planet, we notice a great amount of information, mentioning the Gods—who descended from heaven—who brought to Earth powerful weapons, unlike anything the ancients had ever seen.
But where these ‘ancient weapons’ just part of folklore and myths? What if these ancient texts did not describe myth and legends, but actual weapons, brought by advanced alien civilizations who were misinterpreted as gods?
Curiously, a recent study— titled ‘Prior Indigenous Technological Species’—presented by Jason Wright, assistant professor of astrophysics and astronomy of the Pennsylvania State University suggests our planet, and other celestial bodies in our solar system may have been inhabited, in the distant past by Ancient Aliens. Professor Wright suggests that extraterrestrial technosignatures might be expected to be extremely old, limiting the places they might still be found to beneath the surfaces of Mars and the Moon, or in the outer Solar System.
If we take a look at and ancient Greek and Hindu mythology, the weapons of the gods were a profound and deadly tool, capable of capable of incinerating enemies and leveling entire civilizations.
Created by the ancient Hindu God Vishnu was the Narayanastra—the personal weapon of Lord Vishnu.
This Astra (“weapon” in Sanskrit) in turn fires a powerful tirade of millions of deadly missiles simultaneously. The intensity of the shower rises with an increase in resistance. The only way of defense towards this missile is to show total submission before the missiles hit. This in turn, will cause this weapon to stop and spare the target.
Interestingly, this weapon could only be used ONCE, if one tries to use it twice, then it would devour the user’s own army.
Forged by Lord Brahma was the Brahmastra. This ferocious weapon is described in a number of purana—a vast genre of Indian literature about a wide range of topics—as a very destructive weapon. It is said that when the Brahmastra was discharged, there was neither a counterattack nor a defense that could stop it.
The Brahmastra never missed its mark and had to be used with very specific intent against an individual enemy or army, as the target would face complete annihilation
However, perhaps the most important detail about the Brahmastra was its collateral damage. According to ancient texts, the land where the weapon was used became BARRED, and all life in and around it would CEASE to exist. Men and woman exposed to it became infertile. After the weapon was used, rainfall would decrease and the land would develop cracks.
In fact, the Brahmastra is mentioned in the epics and Vedas as a weapon of last resort and was never to be used in combat.
In the ancient Mahabharata, this weapon is said to be a single projectile charged with all the power of the universe.
An evolution of this terrifying weapon is the Brahmashirsha Astra. The Brahmashirsha astra is said to be four times stronger than the Brahmastra. In the Mahabharata, it is explained that when this weapon was invoked there would be flames, thunder, and a thousand meteors would fall, accompanied with a great din and a trembling of the earth.
Another terrible weapon—said to leave behind apocalyptic scenarios—was the Pashupatastra. Pashupatastra is the most destructive, powerful, irresistible weapon of all the weapons mentioned in the Hindu mythology. This terrible ancient weapon is said to be capable of destroying and vanquishing ALL life.
A Narrative from Kisari Mohan Ganguli translation of Mahabharata regarding the power of Pashupatastra:
O thou of mighty arms, that weapon (Pashupatastra) is superior to the Brahma, the Narayana, the Indra, the Agneya, and the Varuna weapons. Verily, it is capable of neutralizing every other weapon in the universe. It was with that weapon that the illustrious Mahadeva had in days of yore, burnt and consumed in a moment the triple city of the Asuras. With the greatest ease, Mahadeva, using that single arrow, achieved that feat. That weapon, shot by Mahadeva’s arms, can, without doubt, consume in half the time taken up by a twinkling of the eyes the entire universe with all its mobile and immobile creatures. In the universe there is no being including even the deities that are incapable of being slain by that weapon.
Looking at the translated version of the Mahabharata, many agree that it evidently describes how ‘Gods’ used advanced weapons on Earth tens of thousands of years ago. The catastrophic events that rocked the continents are described in the following way:
Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful Vimana, hurled a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor. It was an unknown weapon and iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas.
The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without any apparent cause, and the birds turned white. After a few hours, all food sources were infected…, to escape from this fire; the soldiers threw themselves in streams to wash themselves and all their equipment.
After reading the above, don’t you notice a similarity with weapons we have today? It’s as if history is repeating itself. These ancient Hindu texts describe what today can be interpreted as the nuclear bomb.
The terrible consequences described by the use of ancient weapons such as the Brahmashirsha Astra, the Pashupatastra, and the Brahmastra are eerily similar to those after the detonation of a nuclear bomb. There are scientists who estimate that if there were a nuclear war resulting in 100 Hiroshima-size nuclear explosions on cities, it could cause significant loss of life in the tens of millions from long-term climatic effects alone. The climatology hypothesis is that if each city firestorms, a great deal of soot could be thrown up into the atmosphere which could blanket the earth, cutting out sunlight for years on end, causing the disruption of food chains, in what is termed a nuclear winter.
What if…the ancients described not legends and myths when they talked about the Brahmashirsha Astra, the Pashupatastra, and the Brahmastra, but real weapons brought to Earth by the Gods, who could have been in fact flesh and blood aliens?

Ask yourself, what are the definitions of “God” and those of an Alien? No one can say that these two terms cannot be combined or that a similar meaning does not define them.
Just image for a second if we traveled today to ancient Egypt 2000-3000 years ago, arriving in jet planes, helicopters, with our tablets, smartphones, and powerful weapons.
How would ancient people in Egypt interpret our technology? Would they consider us as ordinary humans?
I believe it would make us stand out from the rest, giving us a notion of power, simply because ancient humans back then, would not recognize our technology, they would not understand it, thus, it is very likely that ancient people would categorize us as “Gods” who came visiting from the sky, in flying birds with glowing wings, producing smoke, fire and extreme noise upon landing… Much like the descriptions of ancient gods in Mesoamerica and Asia, when feathered serpents or Dragons arrived from the stars, creating chaos and havoc upon landing.
Curiously, Manhattan Project chief scientist Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer–who was apparently familiar with ancient Sanskrit writings knew that atomic blasts had occurred in the distant past on Earth.
In an interview conducted after he watched the first atomic test, he quoted from the Bhagavad Gita:
“‘Now I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds. I suppose we all felt that way.”
Furthermore, when a student asked Dr. Oppenheimer if the first nuclear device that went off was the one at Alamogordo. During the Manhattan Project, he responded… Well … yes. In modern times, yes, of course.
But where’s the evidence if such weapons did exist in the distant past?
In modern-day Pakistan, in the vicinity of the banks of the Indus River, we can find one of the most enigmatic archaeological sites on the surface of the planet–which once belonged to one of the oldest civilizations on the planet, the Indus Valley civilization— Mohenjo-Daro.
Together with Harappa located some six hundred kilometers further northeast, Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa are two of the most prominent ancient cities that belonged to the Indus Valley Civilization.
Interestingly, just as the ancient Sumerian civilization, the Indus Valley seemed to have emerged all of a sudden, without any trace of an earlier evolution prior to the apparition of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.
But if the appearance of such amazing civilization remains a mystery, their disappearance is even more fascinating and was initially attributed to the arrival of invading people of Indo-European origin.
Curiously, experts found several skeletal remains at Mohenjo Daro. According to experts, death came to them very quickly.
Interestingly, there is a so-called epicenter of around 45 meters in diameters at the center of the city where the terrain and buildings appear to be crystallized as if they were exposed to a massive heat source.
On the buildings located near the center of the city, researchers have found that the bricks of the walls that are faced towards the exterior and looking away from the epicenter are also fused or melted.
However, this could have only been achieved, according to researchers, by exposing the buildings to a temperature of above 1500 ° centigrade.
What kind of weapons could have caused such devastating effects on both people and the surrounding buildings?
Is it possible that as some people sustain, Mohenjo-Daro was really destroyed by a nuclear explosion?
Evidence or myth? What do you think?
