This is false, it is not a scientific fact, a ley line has nothing to do with faults or plate tectonics but rather "places of interest":
A ley-line is a straight fault line in the earth’s tectonic plates; this is a scientific fact.
So hypothetical means even the existence of them isn't scientific fact, the idea is not only unproven but highly criticized:
Ley lines are hypothetical alignments between a number of places of geographical interest.
One criticism of Watkins' ley line theory states that given the high density of historic and prehistoric sites in Britain and other parts of Europe, finding straight lines that "connect" sites is trivial, and ascribable to coincidence. A statistical analysis of lines concluded that "the density of archaeological sites in the British landscape is so great that a line drawn through virtually anywhere will 'clip' a number of sites."
Eighty 4-point alignments of 137 random points. The graphic illustrates the idea that straight lines between any number of points can be due to chance and not to design.
Here is some information on ley lines. As the above graphic illustrates, it's a misconception to think that alignment of multiple random points is more than coincidence. With enough points some of them are going to line up just by chance, this doesn't give any significance to the so called "lines".
hopefully the members can get some information now on ley lines
Today, ley lines have been adopted by New Age occultists everywhere as sources of power or energy, attracting not only curious New Agers but aliens in their UFOs and locals with their dowsing rods. These New Age occultists believe that there are certain sites on the earth which are filled with special "energy." Stonehenge, Mt. Everest, Ayers Rock in Australia, Nazca in Peru, the Great Pyramid at Giza, Sedona (Arizona), Mutiny Bay, among other places, are believed to be places of special energy. There is no evidence for this belief save the usual subjective certainty based on uncontrolled observations by untutored devotees.

a reply to: Arbitrageur I can only apoligize so many times, have you thought that there might be really dumb people on ATS like myself, who still cant work out how to do things properly? if ATS want to ban me from the site for not following rules then im ok with that. Now if your done comparing brain pans il get back to my looking to see if travis Walton was on or near a ley line when he was taken.

It's much more likely that Walton made up the story of his abduction to collect $5000, than it being a real story. There are too many problems with it outlined here:
You've shown you can make an external link, so if you can do that you can definitely use the EX tags also. If you spend more time reading the links I provided about that, and less time apologizing, I'm sure you'll get it.
i realize that this is a difficult thing for most to conceive of, but in fact, travis was taken in plain sight of witnesses
And why did none of the witnesses ever report seeing Walton abducted? The case was well publicized and such a claim would have come to light had it been made.

I took a look at the leyline map. I'm in south east ohio. That's a bit off from a leyline (looks to be about 200 miles away). Lifelong multiple abductee here.
