Scotland Ancient Interplanetary Discharge Witnessed by Human

Unread post by Lloyd » Tue Jul 29, 2008 8:43 am

- I watched a show on the History Channel last night about Adrienne Mayor's findings in Greece that the ancient Greeks were fossil hunters and they used fossils to support myths. I found the link below about her findings. It says a Scottish myth says a fiery spear from the sun formed the Cuillin Hills or Mountains on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. These hills are darker than the surrounding hills, consisting of gabbro, instead of granite. This suggests that the ancients may have seen an interplanetary discharge transform the Cuillin Hills. They may have witnessed the hills form as a blister that swelled and burst, spewing hot lava.
http://www.stanford.edu/dept/HPS/MayorGeomythology.pdf
- The unusual Cuillin Mountains of [the Isle of] Skye, Scotland, were fabled to have been formed when the Sun hurled his fiery spear into the ground. Where it struck, a huge blister or boil appeared and grew, swelling until it burst and discharged molten, glowing material that congealed to form mountains perpetually covered in snow. Geologists have remarked that the legend accurately recounts the formation of a volcanic dome, which grows, bursts, and spews glowing-hot magma. The Cuillins consist of glabbro [i.e. gabbro], crystallized molten matter, and the surrounding mountains of granite, the Red Hills, are indeed snow-capped in contrast to the steeper Cuillins.
- Here http://www.dwrobertson-photography.com/ ... ofSkye.jpg is a map of the Isle of Skye and the Cuillin Hills there in NW Scotland.
- Here http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UT ... 59&t=h&z=9 is a satellite map of the area. You may want to switch to a Terrain view, as the satellite view makes the hills look like a valley.
- From the above and the following, it appears that such discharges transform granite into gabbro, transmuting silica into calcium and or iron, etc. Also, the ocean floors may initially have been granite, which mega-discharges may have transmuted into basalt, which latter is much like gabbro.
- Gabbro http://geology.about.com/library/bl/images/blgabbro.htm
is a dark, coarse-grained rock that is intrusive and igneous—that is, plutonic, like granite. But unlike granite, gabbro is low in silica and has no quartz; also gabbro has no alkali feldspar, only plagioclase that often is dark with a high calcium content. The other dark minerals may include amphibole, pyroxene and sometimes biotite, olivine, magnetite, ilmenite and apatite. The extrusive (erupted) equivalent of gabbro is basalt.
- Basalt http://geology.about.com/library/bl/images/blbasalt.htm
is a dark, heavy, iron-rich and silica-poor volcanic rock that makes up most of the world's oceanic crust. It is fine-grained so that the individual minerals are not visible, but they include pyroxene, plagioclase feldspar and olivine. These minerals are visible in the coarse-grained, plutonic version of basalt called gabbro.

The Isle of Skye is a beautiful place with some truly strange geography. In the North stands The Old Man of Storr, a monolithic structure, that looks like it belongs on Mars. If you drive North from Portree, this panorama is slowly revealed to you and, in the right light, is perfectly reflected in the loch below. This image really doesn't do it justice.

I would strongly recommend a visit if the opportunity arises...but then, I'm biased.

The isle of Skye

I have, in my possession a piece of a tree which was struck by lightning. The 'petrified wood' has similar lines crossing it, often at right angles and deep pits (with flat bottoms) on the side which faced outwards. It was removed from the tree as it was still attached. It looks remarkably like the first picture on this list.

And I found an interesting feature on a Canadian Shield Island.

It's a Mastiff I believe. http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=h&ll= ... 25348&z=10

And, do you have in your possession (or the possession of a friend / family member) a digital camera with which to take decent resolution pictures of the aforementioned wood to upload as an attachment? It would be interesting to see!

Re: Grand Canyon formation

Unread post by rangerover777 » Tue Aug 05, 2008 7:16 pm

This is how it make sense to me, the Grand Canyon was formed.

Image

For larger view : http://www.leedskalnin.net/geo-2.htm

The drawing shows only a small section of the grand canyon, since the diversity
of “branches” is enormous.

Though I do not know exactly how the underground forces operate, the delicate
work of mountains, hills, valleys, ridges, creeks by nature, shows us only the
end results of a textured earth.

What seems to me quite obvious is that if an underground force pushing upward
and the upper crust is made of layers, then cracking will occur in a tree shape,
depending of the shape of the forces below. If several crack are parallel to each other,
chances that the middle sections will sink down as long as the V-shape from both sides
keeps uplifting.

The layered composition of the Grand Canyon, plays an important role, since they seems
to be undisturbed and consistent in thickness and flatness before the process began.
In such event the cracking will be more consistent in shape (tree like). If the layers where
not organized in such a way, the cracking , splitting and breaking would look non consistence,
And the tree shape will not be so perfectly made like we see in the Grand Canyon.

What I wonder the most about geologists and the EU team, is that there are relatively simple
tests that can reinforced , disapproved or suggest other models to the GC formation. For some
reasons these tests either never done, or I’m not aware of them.

So if someone knows about tests result, please let me know.

Cheers.

an artifact of Zeus?

"Petrified Lightning", or fulgarite, is recently unearthed at Mt. Lykaion in Greece: http://www.physorg.com/news141489676.html.

They also have found silver coins, a bronze hand figure holding a silver lightening bolt, Hellenic fineware and – a curious find – petrified lightning.

“It kind of glistens in the sun and is porous like slag,” Voyatzis said.

“When (George) Davis saw it, he said it was exciting that we found a decent-sized piece,” she added. “It makes you wonder what the ancients understood about this natural phenomenon and why Zeus was worshipped on mountaintops.”

Though the researchers are not yet clear whether the petrified lightning, or fulgurite, was brought to the mountain or if it was created there, its presence is quite compelling. The fulgurite is created when lightening strikes and melts loose sand or soil, forming a kind of glass.
Hehe... *Bemused smile.*

Amazing Rock Formations

Unread post by Lloyd » Tue May 19, 2009 9:03 pm

* This site has several images of amazing rock formations: http://www.mondovista.com/boulders
* Can you find other similar images?
* They look amazingly artificial; don't they? But the site says they're natural rock, I think.

* Well, it wasn't hard to find a site with really good amazing rock images:
http://www.scienceray.com/Earth-Science ... ons.139316
* Here's one from there. Is there anything electrical about it? I think the first images above are electrical effects.
3. Image
* This site http://www.rosi.co.za/photos_natureTextures.htm has this very interesting formation, also rather electrical:
4. Image
* Here's another good site:
http://travelintospain.blogspot.com/200 ... world.html
* And this is one of the best there, I think. The caption says Pierce Rock, Canada.
5. Image
* It's hard to imagine how many of these formed, including this one:
6. Image
* The caption for #7 says:
At the beach in Troncones there were these amazing rock formations. They had straight lines, curves and all kinds of different shapes. It looked like these rocks were all schmooshed up against each other! Really amazing!!!

#2 reminds me (strangely enough) of Moeraki boulders (granted those were spherical, but they had the same kind of cellular patterning on their surface) discussed way way back on Thunderbolts Forum 1.0... Before the crash. Yeah, one of these days I'll get around to rebuilding the parts I saved so it can all be reposted. But I'll tell you it's going slowly on account of all the links that need to be redone by hand. Painstakingly SLOW process. And one I'm not exactly "enjoying," ad tedium... ;o]

@Lloyd: Nah, it's all in HTML format (saved from Google cache). So it's one big manual labor job. Slowly but surely getting there. Mostly fixing the navigation links.

Internal links... Meh. Not enough hours in the day. It would take a hundred code monkeys a hundred years to get all that done... *wink*

@moses: Yeah, which is why I've not devoted as much time to it as I'd originally planned. Though there's enough interesting stuff there that I'd prefer not to lose it all. I occasionally go back, thumb through a thread and go "That's brilliant; I'd completely forgotten about that!" And not even always @ my own posts! *Tongue planted firmly in cheek* :D

Now I'm just kind of hacking away at it in tiny chunks when I have some spare time. Who knows, maybe I'll spend some weekend or two on it and get it done in one big straight stretch. Hot Pockets and Red Bull, or something... Breakfast, lunch and dinner of champions! :ugeek:

* Michael, would you like to email me a page or so of it to see how long it would take me to edit it? Then I could email it back to see what you think of the result.
