In 1945, the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki became the first and last victims of the atom bomb, the most destructive man-made force our planet has ever known. Or were they just the latest in a long line of Armageddon-level events? Is it possible that our civilization is, in reality, just one of many? Did previous cultures blossom, develop, and thrive only to destroy themselves, tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago, with the same atomic technology?
These are the controversial and thought-provoking questions at the heart of Nick Redfern's Weapons of the Gods, which argues that many ancient civilizations cracked the secrets of the atom only to become the victims of its awesome, terrifying power. Where is the evidence? The answer is shockingly simple: It's everywhere. It's just a matter of knowing where to look for it, from the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the ancient Pakistani culture of Mohenjo-daro to the Lonar Crater in India and the revelations in the Ramayana and Mahabharata, two ancient Sanskrit texts that describe nuclear warfare thousands of years ago.

This is mostly a review of a number of references to advanced weaponry mentioned in various ancient myths and documented stories as well as a strict view at suggested physical evidence. What makes this one of the better books on this topic is the level headed discussion and willingness to dismiss and disagree with theories that may be commonly mentioned but ultimately do not make convincing arrangements for the theory that advanced weapons were employed on earth far back in time.
This is a fascinating area of research and his rigorous discussion is a welcome contribution to the discussion.
"He promotes responsible science. Well done!"
This author explorers most all the facts and theories and covers both sides of the coin when it comes to looking at different aspects how the evidence or purported evidence related to ancient aliens or other entities potentially used atomic weapons in ancient times on the Earth.
Author makes a case for ancient alien nuclear power here on Earth. Much from Zitchkin.
"Hard trials to debunk Ancient advamcements"
The enigmatic, glorious and sophisticated human past is being explained away as natural disasters and lesser incidents. Such misinformed individuals are the ones that transform any collective memory to collective amnesia
"Title should be 'Ancient Alien Theroy is BS""
The author starts out saying he is keeping an open mind on Ancient Alien Theory and over the next 18 chapters proceeds to say1) The books Mahabharata, Ramayana, Bhagavad Gita were mistranslated and had no specials weapons, Vimanas, etc.2) Egypt light bulbs/power are BS.3) Vitrification, radio active skeletons, gold plane models are BS.4) Just think of anything on Ancient Aliens and the other thinks it is BS.
Think of the pompous rich kid in movies with his ivy league accent. That's what he sounds like.
From reading the title, you would think this book would have addition information about Ancient Alien Theory. The stuff he does have is a re-hash of the show.
I don't know anything about the author, but I can guess he likes National Geographic, Smithsonian Institution, Charles Darwin.
Thanks God, I can get a refund!
