No right thread, I got a bit ratchety, took my beta blockers afterward's and feel a little better so for getting short in my word's I apologize but I
believe that I am correct as far as the tree root assumption goes and am surprised that on that point you agree, the basic premis when that they pipes
were fossilized tree root's which they are exceptionally unlikely to be.
You DO have a good point as they COULD be natural formation's though I personally find it unlikely that they are, still there are many thing's we
still do not know and natural process can Occasionally produce artifact's that appear artificial.
One hypothesis was that the pipe's formed from a type of mineral depositing action inside natural steam and water vent's but once again I think that
is just one of those a bunch of monkey's typing shakespears collected work's explanation's and not really viable.
Once again I got ratchety so Sorry for getting uppity but I stand by my opinion on the pipe's and the only suggestive fact that I find from this is
that Basalt is usually rich in Iron and of course Iron is soluble but to layer metalic unoxidised iron that steam would have had to be incredibly hot,
explosively so and to a pressure that is likely to be far above the mean strength and saturation propertys of the matrix within which these pipes then
allegedly formed for it to have occured at all so that is in my opinion another extremely unlikely explanation.
Howver given that this site is within the time period of modern man's existance it is not totally beyond the possibility that there was at least one
lost epoch of human civilization we know nothing about (At least at official and accepted anthropological viewpoint level's), if the circle on the
highland's of south africa are really traces of modern man's settlement's then huge numbers of people were living settled existance as far back as
200.000 years ago or more,
If the argument's about mines in the area that are the same age are true then they must have been working early metal's even if only by beating them
and of course this would be a full 50.000 years or more earlier than the age that Chinese have allegedly attributed to the Baigong pipe's, these were
modern human's so if they had culture - artisan's - metal work - large settlement's then perhaps they also exported those skill's and even went
through a now long forgotten period of advancement that was then lost, remember we are like the proverbial magpie, we loot our own ancient history and
destroy the traces of what came before, why cut down a tree when we can take that beam from that old castle, why shape a stone when I can demolish
that old tower or why gather stone's to make my dry stone wall's when there are plenty in that old ruin.
Recycling is a very old concept of course.
Now ok that is purely speculative with no WOW evidence to back it up but there is enough suggestion that evidence does exist and has been suppressed
to make it a viable suggestion if nothing more.
