Angel One I like hearing your dreams and thoughts. I became a geologist back in the 1980's and I studied Yellowstone National Park back in 2006.
The northern part of Yellowstone is quite beautiful, but the southern part isn't quite so beautiful because of the new growth of pine trees down in
the southern half or two thirds; they form an impenetrable barrier and one can't see to far. In the northern region of Yellowstone, one can see for
miles and the view is spectacular.
I'm not sure where you get the idea:
"did you know that the whole center of the North American continent should be under a shallow sea. The reason it is not under the sea, is because the
Yellowstone complex has lifted up the whole continent refilling its reservoir".
I'm sorry but that idea is incorrect, I don't know who told you that or where you read that, but they shouldn't have told you that. Yellowstone is
far to the Northwest of the center of North America. The Yellowstone Caldera has its links to the east, from there the Yellowstone Caldera gets its
fill of magma.
The Grand Canyon is huge, deep and long. It is due to an uplift running down its center, yet there is no volcanics going on within the Grand Canyon
because the sediments are so deep.
More than likely, some of the Yellowstone Caldera was caused by a massive volcanic eruption, but that volcanic eruption was probably caused by a huge
meteorite or comet striking the area. The reason many of us think this, is because a complete mountain was turned upside down there in the
Yellowstone region. A volcano can blow its top but it will not flip a complete mountain over, that had to be done by a massive impact of some
As the Mid-Atlantic Ridge spreads outwards at about 2 inches a year in general, it creates pressure to the west and to the east of the Mid-Atlantic
Ridge. We are to the west of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, therefore, all of the land in North America is basically moving towards the west until it grinds
against the Pacific Plate, were it fragments and then starts to move northward counterclockwise around the Pacific Plate.
So... the central part of the USA is being uplifted slowy because of the jamming effect of the land towards the west. The Rockies are young and
moving up, the Front Range is folding and moving up, and the lowlands are rising gently from the westward movement of the land below us. This is
generally well known. So.. the Yellowstone Caldera is not connected with the central part of the USA at all, and it is not lifting the central part
of the USA.
Proof that it is not lifting the central part of the USA comes from Piezoseismology, a word I coined back in the 1980s. Piezoseismology graphs the
Earth as it rises and lowers and/or any time there is abnormal pressure within the Earth. The graph shows the actual chain reactions as the surface
of the Earth moves in the different directions also. Basically Piezoseismology proves that Yellowstone is not connected in any way to the central
part of the USA.
Pretty soon you will learn about Piezoseismology in order to accurately predict when volcanic eruptions are going to strike; and to determine when,
depth and where destructive earthquakes are going to strike. Different volcanoes are linked to different regions, by watching those regions
piezoseismically then it is easy to determine when the volcanoes will blow.
You seeing war in America, I can believe that. There is unrest amoungst the citizens, but they are unorganized; while they are unorganized they are
useless in getting anything constructive started or finished.
Your thoughts on a plague I can see as being fairly true also. That it affects the whole world in a quick period of time I can believe that also.
I see you still believe in the End Days. I don't think there will ever be any end days, just more days of Sunshine and Beauty to behold, if one gets
out to observe it.
You will more than likely be more than just a Vulcanologist in the future, because Piezoseismology is a completely NEW science and the world has no
real idea of it yet, but I will explain it soon on YouTube on many videos.
The thing is, don't get carried away being a volcanologist and piss your life away because a volcano is active. Many volcanologists have died for
stupid reasons, and your life is worth more than just to see volcanic activity up close. With piezoseismology you won't need to be very close, in
order to determine when it will blow and with what magnitude.
I watched a horrid experience one time. When Mount St. Helens exploded back in the 80s there were two vehicles on the road leaving Mount St. Helens.
While the initial heat blast was approaching the two vehicles, the old pick-up truck being driven by a man doing an estimated 90 miles per hour was
passed by the station wagon doing 110 miles per hour. The man in the pick-up wasn't driving fast enough, he didn't make it, the heat blast took
him. I saw volcanologists standing on the upper portions of Mount St. Helens communicating that "it's going to blow, its going to blow", and they
didn't make it.
Life is precious, realize the situation you are in, and act for your safety and others, even if the others out rank you. If you want to save lives,
stick around long enough to save more peoples lives; you won't be able to save lives if you are dead.
Terry one of my good friends was a sniper in Vietnam. He had over 400 kills, and has 27 bullet holes throughout his body to provide evidence of his
duty to his country. But when he was told by his commanding officer that he and the others were going out on their last duty for their country and
that they were not expected to be coming back alive, he refused and took the courtmarshal, and went to military prison for a few years; but he is
still alive and doing well, he looks like Mr. Atlas still. He was smart enough to know when to say "NO", hopefully you will do the same when the
Remember, this is a beautiful world and you have a long life to live in order to see all of it, just like all of the rest of you out there reading
this. Doom and gloom is no good, so always stay positve and enjoy life because there will be no end days, that's just a figment of someones
imagination. I hope you are doing well in your studies, keep up the good work Angel One.
