So what? Just retreat into your underground lairs that you all have kitted out with everything that you will need for about 60 years or so. Then get hold of all of the attractive members of the opposite sex that you have on call just in case you have to repopulate the earth, and let the good times roll!

I can't wait!

P.S. I wouldn't worry about it.

If this does happen, it will impact the whole world, not just the US. Just remember the flight chaos caused by the volcano in Iceland, and then think of the disruption an eruption of that magnitude would have, both on travel and global finance. It would make any of the disasters we have seen in the last number of years seem like a stubbed toe.

This might be a reason that FEMA is stocking up on packaged meals?? In the event this does occur.

Well if this will finally make the doomsayer happy,than cookies all around.
Afterall,this is what some people here on ATS seemingly look forward to.

And this is all much to do about nothing.
Its happened before and WILL happen again............someday.
And there nothing anyone can do to stop it.

So why worry?
Live life and deal with whatever happens when it does.

As for you doom loving special people,maybe,just maybe,you will be fortunate enough to see this occur in your lifetime.

Im betting a box of Oreo cookies that someone on here is looking for a reference to this on a Simpson's episode.

Who cares who was at the opening? Doesn't mean squat.

The Queen attends openings of Community Centres, but she certainly isn't involved in running, financing or planning of them!

Or is she...? dum dum dum. It has been very well publicized on ATS that the Royal Family bought a bunch of stuff in Denver. Denver just so happens to be (in all probability) in the blast radius of Yellowstone.
Perhaps the Queen will also be present at the opening of the Yellowstone erruption.
Then you can say that we have a real conspiracy involving the Queen financing this whole project.

not if she is safe in the bunker complex under the new airport

Really, maybe YOU care to explain HOW earthquakes work then? Go ahead I am ALL EARS, but don't bother shoving some cornell site bs on me because I could not care less what they have to say. All the major institutions and governments of the world are part of the ifs or buts either!

You think your frustrated?
You should see how frustrating it is for people who take time off their busy schedule to dig up information to REALLY EDUCATE people who DONT CARE about anythng they didnt learn in their pathetic high school or even collegiate years. Yeah unless your professor or "nasa"(god I hate them) says something its always bs, bs, bs. ok whatever...go listen to fox news then!

Yeah of course it couldn't be bothered to verify information on your own AT ALL. I just post stuff for the heck of it because I am bored. Your blatant and pathetic attempt to discredit me supersedes evryhting else, don't it? How much do they pay you?

And the video is not factual. Its a Hollywood movie. One of my own favorites, yes, and I think the "coincidence" is trippy, but by no means factual.

I like watching hollywood movies too but I am smart enough, educated enough and experienced enough to see symbols for what they are. 666 is plainly visible in that video and I bet you didn't even watch the video. No worries though!

Oh and I never said BP will cause the new madrid earthquake nor the yellowstone eruption. I implied that the lack of oil and gas pressure from that extremely deep well(also know as abiotic oil due to its depth) COULD cause irregularities for the north american continent. That is quite different then saying IT WILL...don't jump the gun next time with your paranoid dribble...please! How do you think fault lines are formed and what lubricates them so more earthquakes don't form? Unquestionably oil!

You cant school me even if you tried so just let it go!

What I am feeling and seeing within my mind should probably be a thread of itself, or attached to another thread which already exists, but since this is the thread that prompted my imagination I will just put this here because I am not a "player" in the "how many threads can I create" attitudes on ATS. (was that rude? LOL oh well, we are talking Doom, so rude can be reasonable to a limit--my apologies)

First of all, I commend the OP, this thread Rocks! It certainly Rocked me! Here is how:

Scientifically I could put a thermometer into something warm and come out with a reading so I highly doubt we are ever going to get any kind of straight answer from science as this mode has definitely gone to the "speculators". LOL again and again I say, "our Knowns have become Unknown"! So I cannot trust what Science has to say on any Matters of what we are really facing!

With this thought, I can only put faith behind our Prophets, our Seers, and our Shamans of the Past (not the silly wanna-be's we've got today looking for green paper).

We have Nostradamus, we have Edgar Cayce, we have the Bible, we have the Koran...the list goes on and on. The one thing that I note is that most of these indicate that the US will fall and it will fall in a day. Seriously, I believe we are the Whore of Babylon and since there are no other candidates then I will hold this as my own truth; but that is a Christian story and if this or anything else has anything to do with Revelations than that is all we are and nothing more because Armageddon is about the Middle East and not America. Revelations is not about America!

Personally I have turned to the wisdom of the Hopi and other Indigenous peoples of this continent; I find that what we will soon discover is their words are far more accurate than most want to admit. I realized that the Blue Star Kachina (Hopi) has not shown itself to Mankind yet because not all of Mankind was able to witness Comet Holmes (as dramatic as it was Drunvalo is wrong), so I do not believe the Hopi Blue Star has appeared.

Here is a Thread introducing a really good candidate: Comet Ele-nin.

When Ele-nin arrives it will cast off its outer core and reveal itself for what it truly is, it will be known as the Blue Star because that is what people all over the world will witness as it moves between Earth and Mercury.

The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a "Kachina" removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children [the general public]. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.

Then there is the Iroquois Prophecy of the Black Serpent.

There was a White Serpent who came from the East who befriended but betrayed the Native People, then came a Red Serpent who came from the North. The two Serpents were in battle together and a hair was pulled from the White Serpent. It landed into the Gulf of Mexico where it became a Black Serpent. The Black Serpent sprang forth across the land northward and attacked the Red and White Serpent, the Red Serpent retreated never to be seen again, and the White Serpent, severely wounded, swam across the ocean to the East. Then a Great White Light emerges in the Sky, brighter than the Sun itself, which forces the Black Serpent to retreat to the South forever.

Most have felt that the White Serpent represents our Democracy, or America as we know it. The Red Serpent represents the infiltration and fight of Socialism and/or Communism within America today. The battle between the two is our Political stages that we are witnessing now. The Black Serpent represents the Gulf of Mexico and the poisoning/drilling/cracked surface of its depths.

This brings me to why I wrote this. I used to believe the GOM was going to explode, I remember the fears of Methane hydrates and how volatile they are, but now I see this differently. I used to think the GOM disaster was the Black Serpent, but that is only the hair that creates the Serpent.

The Black Serpent is the New Madrid Fault

The video that was posted regarding the Michigan Crack, that is the Black Serpent and it is going to set in motion the removal of the Red Serpent and the wounding of the White Serpent (which will retreat to the East). It even looks like a Black Serpent laying on the ground!

I don't think it is Yellowstone at all, it is the New Madrid Fault Line and it is going to crack wide open and the Great Lakes are going to spill across the plains.

Interestingly, several maps (of prophecy) have indicated such a thing and show the entire Midwest under water. We have all seen them; I believe Edgar Cayce's map is one of them.

This single event will bring America to her knees, in one day Babylon will fall. The interim Government will move East to Israel where Obama will remain President DeFacto, and fulfill his role as the False Prophet standing beside the AntiChrist!

This is what I got from this thread because I opened my eyes to all Truths simultaneously. WOW! Awesome stuff. It might just be a wise thing to move to the Yellowstone area; game, water, and protection; and of course, the Hopi will be in the Wild Places by then, as they prophesied with Etchena Etchata as he brings forth the peoples of the South, or what we know as the Maya People! The Rainbow Prophecy Fulfilled!

Thanks! I feel comforted now because I have reflected on Yellowstone for many many weeks and it just is not talking to me; now I understand. Thank you OP!

Would dallas Texas be affected?

I believe an eruption would be considered an "extinction level event" because of the expected ashcloud blocking sunlight for years.ash would travel to D.C. within days.( letme go find some facts.)

As I read the headline on CNN this morning, I was amazed to see them referring to Yellowstone’s ancient (?) Volcano – which is an oversimplification of the facts, if not grossly misleading. Yellowstone IS NOT the location of an “ancient volcano”, but the site of one of the world’s largest “Super-Volcanoes” which if it ever erupted in our lifetimes, would spell disaster not only for the United States – but could easily be labeled as an extinction level event, and that’s far more serious than CNN’s article would lead anyone to believe:


First shown: BBC2 9:30pm Thursday 3rd February 2000

Exploding VolcanoHidden deep beneath the Earth’s surface lie one of the most destructive and yet least-understood natural phenomena in the world – supervolcanoes. Only a handful exist in the world but when one erupts it will be unlike any volcano we have ever witnessed. The explosion will be heard around the world. The sky will darken, black rain will fall, and the Earth will be plunged into the equivalent of a nuclear winter.

Normal volcanoes are formed by a column of magma – molten rock – rising from deep within the Earth, erupting on the surface, and hardening in layers down the sides. This forms the familiar cone shaped mountain we associate with volcanoes. Supervolcanoes, however, begin life when magma rises from the mantle to create a boiling reservoir in the Earth’s crust. This chamber increases to an enormous size, building up colossal pressure until it finally erupts.

The last supervolcano to erupt was Toba 74,000 years ago in Sumatra. Ten thousand times bigger than Mt St Helens, it created a global catastrophe dramatically affecting life on Earth. Scientists know that another one is due – they just don’t know when… or where. MUCH MORE

If anything it seems to be slowing down

The upward movement of the Yellowstone caldera floor—almost 3 inches (7.6 cm) each year between 2004 and 2008—was more than three times greater than ever observed since such measurements began in 1923.[22] From mid-Summer 2004 through mid-Summer 2008, the land surface within the caldera moved upwards, as much as 8 inches (20 cm) at the White Lake GPS station.[23][24] By the end of 2009, the uplift had slowed significantly and appeared to have stopped.[25] In January 2010, the USGS stated "that uplift of the Yellowstone Caldera has slowed significantly" [26] and uplift continues but at a slower pace.[27] The U.S. Geological Survey, University of Utah and National Park Service scientists with the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory maintain that they "see no evidence that another such cataclysmic eruption will occur at Yellowstone in the foreseeable future. Recurrence intervals of these events are neither regular nor predictable

I don't think we'll have a full-on eruption anytime soon. I could certainly see a smaller eruption being a distinct possibility. Personally, I'll start worrying when we start getting 3 and 4 inch jumps every few weeks.

I aint a volcanologist but i'd say no where in the world would escape some kind of effect of this volcano errupting.

I'll tell you what though! If this does erupt i will be praying for every single americans soul because i would not like to be within a 1000 miles of this thing when it decides to say hello...

But he added: ‘Once we saw the magma was at a depth of ten kilometres, we weren't so concerned.'

‘If it had been at depths of two or three kilometre we'd have been a lot more concerned.'

Yeah. So after all the hype and 'possibilities' throughout the 'article' we finally get the to the crux of the matter.

If it was going to blow though do you think they would tell us? Either way I live about 2k miles away and 300 miles away from the coastline. Unfortunately 20 miles away from a nuke plant but ehh... nothings perfect.

I woke up 2 mornings ago with a feeling of impending doom and when i get these feelings, something usually happens.... now i am a little psychic and also Empathic which gives me feelings of the Earth aswell as Human.... and i've mentioned in other posts about my abilities....

I would say to anyone who lives within the blast radius to get out f there as soon as you can....

I dare to even place a bet - half my savings - that there will be no disaster (natural/man-made) huge enough to cripple U.S. economy.

I must say, I'm convinced that everything will be fine now.
Thanks. Unless of course you are joking, which I'm half convinced you are. lol.
