God is going to be angry when he comes down because we've fallen so far.

maybe, who knows - we were supposedly made in its image after all

Physicists at the University of Toronto have cracked the mystery behind the strange and uncannily well-ordered hexagonal columns found at such popular tourist sites as Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway and California's Devil's Postpile, using water, corn starch, and a heat lamp.
"The size of the columns, which varies from site to site between a few inches and a few yards, is primarily determined by the speed at which lava from a volcanic eruption cools," says U of T physics professor Stephen Morris, who supervised the thesis project of PhD student Lucas Goehring. Cooling lava sometimes forms strange column-shaped formations with a remarkable degree of order.

Do you have any studies, experiments, etc..by actual scientists, to back up your claim?

are you serious?
i know i shouldnt be suprised.
do you know what silicon is?
it bonds with oxygen. and becomes a solid.
hows it going to breathe, eh?
didnt think of that did ya?

Which is exactly what I was referencing as a nonsensical claim that goes against empirical observable evidence. Here is what cooled lava looks like: Cooled Lava. I see no organized hexagonal columns. Even so, how could lava flow elevate to the heights as exhibited by devil's tower? Think about it.

dont worry about the redaction.
man, who cares?
the threads basically insane anyway.

its not my claim but youll be wanting to reread or perhaps read the second law of thermodynamics.
oh and geological classification of igneous rock is basically decided by features created by cooling rates against ingredients.

Seriously, if this upsets you so much why are you even on this thread -

from an earlier post of yours -


definitely glue, maybe ketomine, perhars barbituate


As you seem to be well versed as to drug use you honestly don't expect to be taken seriously?



worst albums of the last 3 decades


that's your subjective opinion - pick your own music to relax to

Silicon is already a solid -
as to life forms - here...

en.wikipedia.org...


Silicon is an essential element in biology, although only tiny traces are required by animals.[10] However, various sea sponges and microorganisms, such as diatoms and radiolaria, secrete skeletal structures made of silica. Silica is deposited in many plant tissues, such as in the bark and wood of Chrysobalanaceae and the silica cells and silicified trichomes of Cannabis sativa, horsetails and many grasses.[11

it does not form into meticulous hexagonal columns.

the fact was that many fields of science are founded on assumption.

That's the mystery presented by the observation. You actually think these structures share no resemblance to tree stumps? The hexagonal columns resemble the xylem of plants (diagram of xylem). And yes I do know biology, I just keep an open mind as should any scientist.

well your post raises a number of interesting questions
"As you seem to be well versed as to drug use you honestly don't expect to be taken seriously?"
or i could just be versed in chemistry and physiology, in any case, if you are so biased against "drug users" as you see fit to catergorise other human beings, who may wish to change or expand their perceptions vis a vis their past experiences or current enviroments, you would perhaps also bear in mind that others may not have the diverse inexperience of the real world, and blinkered entitlement bestowed upon you by your soft earned misperceptions of reality and selfworth.
and if you like enya that much....
you should socialise with humans more often.
(sorry, about enya, glueboy, but he asked for it!)

hexagonal is a reflection of the molecular structure, as salt and sugar are cubes. like a honeycomb, as its the most efficient structure to build, i.e. strength v mass, like cells/
and your post below, we knew silicon was a solid, just to point out we said silicon oxidises solid. so you wouldnt be able to exhale which is maybe why you did not read what was stated earlier and why you ....i give up.
oh and the second law of thermodynamics
did you go and look?
i bet you didnt!
and double or quits you will skim read it on google now, cos i just said what i said, and not absorb it and come back with another comment thats gonna make you look like a jackass again.....

still wrong, even 2 hours later
observation!
www.google.fr...

"That's the mystery presented by the observation." so i cannot imagine how embarassed i would be if, i had written your post and someone had not stopped here. because obviously if the first two issues in this post were settled, which they are, the i would be really upset if they then copied and pasted this, the last bit.

" You actually think these structures share no resemblance to tree stumps? The hexagonal columns resemble the xylem of plants (diagram of xylem). And yes I do know biology, I just keep an open mind as should any scientist.
oh noooooo!!!!


and nones still told me who made them into tree stumps

Comparing this topic to the uh, okay I'll say it... The Mandela Effect which is interesting, but this topic is far more intriguing maybe because it exposes us more to how little we know about science in general and other related fields. Is it just me trying to figure out something way over my head? Well, maybe with the exception of username74. So let's try to make a comparison:

Mandela Effect
To thoroughly investigate it we have to at least have an average proficiency in diverse fields such as psychology, sociology, medicine, mathematics, physics, philosophy, linguistics, information technology, maybe even arts, humanities, political science, parapsychology and other fringe fields, etc. and never forget history. It wouldn't hurt if we go as far back as we can.

Now, here's the tricky part. How do we whittle it down to the obvious fields of specialties? For example psychology, take your pick wikipedia.org. I'm sure there are sub-fields of sub-fields of specialties... and that's just psychology. You can all fill in the blanks, add or subtract other major fields of studies that you think will be pertinent. Now let's go to:

There are no Forests on Earth Hypothesis (or TANFOE Hype for short)
If we are trying to be realistic maybe a way below average proficiency is acceptable in fields like biology, geology, climatology, archeology, paleontology, archeology, mathematics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, philosophy, linguistics, information technology and again maybe even comparative religion, arts, humanities, engineering, parapsychology and other fringe fields and of course history.

Whittling it down, for botany alone wikipedia.org. The sub-fields and the sub,sub-fields I leave up to all of you. Again add or subtract fields that might be pertinent in our investigation.

Now that's a motherlode of data to sift through, collect, correlate etc. Where do we start with the TANFOE Hype? Do we argue and debate the small details or step back and try to see the bigger picture? Maybe attack it at what could be it's weakest point which is size? So what's next? Most of us are only limited to on-line research, I bet the good stuffs are not accessible to the public- papers that's so abstruse that maybe only a few of us can understand or make sense of. How many of us are proficient in multiple languages? Chances are only a good portion of those papers are in English or translated to English... heck! Maybe it's just me.

Is a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach the way to go? Not only here but everything, even topics like UFO's, 9/11, GMO, chemtrails, electric universe etc.

You can say what you want however you want to say it, no problem with me. How about helping us out?

Look at the picture shown in your deeply sought wiki link. HOW could such tall columns be the result of flowing lava??!?!? HOW??? You may not consider the large tree hypothesis and that's fine, but the old hypothesis is more ridiculous than the one presented in the video.
