I’ve been going on about the link between rising magma, rising seismicity and wildfires for a while now, in connection to what’s been happening in California.
Dutchsinse – the amateur geophysics genius on Youtube who seems to know far more about real science then most of the ‘real’ scientists out there – basically nailed the process of what’s occurring:
There’s a big earthquake that occurs out to sea, but close enough to get the plates moving.
That seismic activity shows up as a swarm of much smaller quakes striking on the flanks of a whole bunch of volcanoes, including many officially listed as ‘dormant’ or ‘dead’.
Within a few days of those earthquakes striking, the wildfires begin.
Because the earthquakes mean that magma is on the move, and as part of that seismic activity, some of the volcanic gases contained in magma – including methane – are released from the ground, and seep up through the surface of the earth, where they can spontaneously ignite, if the conditions are right.
And all it takes is a spark, so getting the methane to light is not so hard, especially if you’re God.
Back in THIS POST, I linked to the fact sheet from the USGS that explained how methane has been leaking out around the Sutter Buttes volcano in the Sacramento Valley for centuries.
Sacramento Valley is the location of most of those wildfires in California, and the ones that weren’t located in that area were also located very close to ‘old’ volcanic fields that had recently experienced swarms of micro-quakes.
A few days’ back, Dutchsinse happened to mention that Australia had experienced a rare (for them) earthquake. Then today, there are stories of awful wildfires breaking out all around Deeptown and Round Hill in Central Queensland.
Authorities are describing these fires as ‘unprecedented’ – because Australia is still at the close of its rainy season. Even though most of the rain fell very late in the season, causing drought conditions for the first part of the Australian winter, at this point, the ground is soaked (and they’ve been having ‘unprecedented’ flash flooding).
So yes, heatwave, blah blah blah. Drought, blah blah blah.
But something else appears to be going on here.
Queensland is full of volcanoes, and ‘extinct’ volcanic fields – including the ‘Agnes Water Volcanics’, which happens to be right where the fires are breaking out around Baffle Creek.
Lucky for the residents, the scientists have dated most of the volcanoes and volcanic fields in Queensland to the Triassic age – i.e. some 200-250 million years ago (sic) – based on a few plant fossils that were found in some sandstone.
If you hold by the idea that the world is only 5778 years old, as the Torah tells us, clearly this dating is plain wrong.
What if the volcanoes, and the volcanic fields in Australia are all starting to wake up, same as we’re seeing California?
Again, there is a reason that the American continent, and particularly the West coast, and Australia were sparsely inhabited by ‘primitive people’ when the ‘civilised’ Europeans discovered them a couple of centuries ago, and started a systematic program of ethnic cleansing and mass murder.
Let’s do the maths together:
(See HERE for more details on this, if you like maths).
A couple who lived in the UK 2,000 years ago, at the time of the Roman invasion of Britain, would have an estimated 500,000 descendants, 16 generations later (400 years). By a thousand years later, they’d have an estimated 50 million descendants.
Science tells us Australia and California (and everywhere else) are billions of years old.
So, where were all the people?
Why were there only a maximum of 600,000 people living in the whole, gigantic West of America 200 years ago? Why only 250,000 Australian Aborigines found in the whole continent, when the Europeans made ‘first contact’ in the 19th century?
Could it be, that these places experienced regularly, massive geological upheaval and change, which periodically wiped out nearly all the inhabitants in one go, as the ground raised up out of the sea, cracked, plunged into it, and magma and volcanic gases spread across the earth?
While you’re chewing that over, I had an email from the North of Israel this week, that told me there has been a fire burning uncontrollably near the Zaki stream, at the foot of the Golan Heights, in the Betiha Valley. (I haven't been able to independently verify if this is true - if anyone lives close and can give me more info, or better yet, take a picture, please do!)
The Zaki Stream was one of the places that got closed in the Summer, because of an outbreak of Leptospirosis in the water sources in the area of the Golan Heights. (It’s a post for another time, but I think the leptospirosis outbreak is somehow linked to the earth becoming warmer, or the gases being released, as magma rises towards to the surface.)
The Golan Heights is volcanic, and still active – there are at least 16 volcanoes there.
Israel has also been experiencing a higher number of small quakes in and around the North over the last few months. (Go HERE if you want to keep tabs on Israel’s earthquakes yourself.)
Is the same scenario playing out all over the world?
Are the volcanoes waking up? Is magma on the move?
Are things about to change in a spectacular fashion, throwing large parts of the world back to the Stone Age as part of the birth pangs of Moshiach?
I guess we’ll find out.
