Earths Forbidden Secrets By Maxwell Igan

A word must also be said on the estimated age of these skeletons: While it’s true that the
remains have been Radiocarbon dated to around 2500 BC, it must be remembered that Carbon
dating requires measuring the amounts of residual radiation levels that are left in any organic


object. However, when a radioactive event like an atomic explosion has occurred in the vicinity
of the site, the remains that are found there will contain significant amounts of radiation due the
event and thus appear to be significantly younger than they actually are. If the ruins and
radioactive skeletons found at Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro were indeed the result of such an
event in ancient times then the true age of the site may be anyone’s guess.

An enigmatic exhibit D is the large areas of desert that have been found strewn with mysterious
globules of glass known as ‘tektites’ (fig.151) Tektites are occasionally discussed in geological
literature though not very often as they tend to pose more questions than answers. They are blobs
of "hardened glass" and one possibility is that they come from meteorite impacts in most
instances, but evidence shows that in the majority of cases there is no nearby impact crater plus
there is also the problem that many tektites contain traces of non-earthy elements.
Another possibility is that tektites have a terrestrial explanation only that theory is almost never
explored as involves ancient war and the use of atomic or other weapons capable of melting sand.
The debate on tektites was summed up quite well in an article entitled "The Tektite Problem",
by John O'Keefe, published in Scientific American in August of 1978:
“If tektites are terrestrial, it means that some process exists by which soil or common rocks can
be converted in an instant into homogeneous, water-free, bubble-free glass and be propelled
thousands of miles above the atmosphere. If tektites come from the Moon, it seems to follow that
there is at least one powerful volcano somewhere on the Moon that has erupted at least as
recently as 750,000 years ago. Neither possibility is easy to accept. Yet one of them must be
accepted, and I believe it is feasible to pick the more reasonable one by rejecting the more
“The key to solving the tektite problem is an insistence on a physically reasonable hypothesis
and a resolute refusal to be impressed by mere numerical coincidences such as the similarity of
terrestrial sediments to tektite material. I believe that the lunar volcanism hypothesis is the only
one physically possible, and that we have to accept it. If it leads to unexpected but not impossible
