Is the world's largest super-volcano set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years
The Daily Mail ^ | 1/24/2011 | DANIEL BATES

Posted on 01/24/2011 11:10:36 AM PST by FromLori

Is the world's largest super-volcano set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years, wiping out two-thirds of the U.S.? (Full title)

The super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004.

It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980.

Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.

Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.

I gather you are unaware of a hand held unit that when aimed at a concrete block wall allows our troops to walk through the wall.

Yeah, it's a detonator and it BLOWS UP THE WALL, hence they can walk through.

And a Start Trek sort of phaser that when on maximum setting leaves not even any ash.

I have 2. Got them on Amazon.

One of my trusted Bro’s has ‘seen’ in a vision or dream, I forget, much of the West Coast sink into the water and another long mountain range rise up more or less instantly while folks from safer vantage points watch in real time.

Certainly I expect some cataclysmic land movements unprecedented as far as we know.

One person ‘saw’ the Hoover Dam pushed from the side, squished side to side. Given that it’s essentially a huge concrete pyramid . . . that would be some force.

I mostly collect and report puzzle pieces. I rarely have prophetic visual images myself of such events.

Time will tell what falls off the shelf as real and what doesn’t.

I mostly want folks to wake up and prepare as things are NOT going to be normal a great deal longer.

Outdated. The rise in the magma dome has stopped, and the earthquake swarms have slowed or ceased, occording to U Of Utah researchers, and Taiwanese researchers.

http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/yvo/ then click on New Research From Unversity of Utah.

Have to remember it takes ships a long time to transport news across the Atlantic, after taking almost as long for someone to carry the messages from Yellostone to the East Coast.

Someday, scientists, engineers, and tinkerers will find a way to transmit messages...maybe even moving picture with sound!...around the world almost instantaneously, but right now that is just a fantasiser’s dream.

You obviously have negligible awareness of what I believe, teach and support—thankfully—there’s likely some mercy for you attached to your ignorance.

Your ignorance and biases are spewing all manner of untrue stuff about me in a very harsh, mean-spirited and foolhardy way.

God have mercy.

Chorus:
Let me say now I don’t know

Ground she’s movin’ under me
Tidal waves out on the sea
Sulphur smoke up in the sky

Chorus:
Let me hear ya now I don’t know

You better lava me now or lava me not

Chorus:
Let me say now I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know where I’m a gonna go
When the volcano blow

— Spoken: “Mr Utley...”

No time to count what I’m worth
‘Cause I just left the planet earth
Where I go I hope there’s rum
Not to worry mon soon come

Chorus:
Now I don’t know

Chorus:
One more now I don’t know (ah he don’t know)

Don’t want to land in Mexico (no no no)
Don’t want to land on no Three Mile Island
Don’t want to see my skin aglow (no no no)

‘3. Betelgeuse goes supernova wiping out the world.’

I would worry more about this than anything else.

But, even so, I doubt it would actually wipe out life on Earth. The Big B is very big, but, not that big.

Please keep in mind that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Now: 1) I gather you are unaware of a hand held unit that when aimed at a concrete block wall allows our troops to walk through the wall.

2) And a Start Trek sort of phaser that when on maximum setting leaves not even any ash.

I want to see proof. Your word is not good enough; nothing personal, but I don't believe you.

Acceptable answers: 1) A link to the device on a trustworthy website, Rense doesn't count. 2) A couple of videos of either device working; yes, I realize it's easy to fake so if they're from the DOD I would trust them. Again, Rense, and other whacko websites, not acceptable.

Unacceptable answers: 1) I've been doing this for 20 years and I saw it with my own eyes. Yeah, and I saw bigfoot, what, you don't believe me, I'm crushed? 2) Websites like: Rense. Disinfo Anything associated with Alex Jones. Your own website, self sourcing is unacceptable.

So, lets see your proof; no proof then we have a word for that. I don't want to violate the TOS but you know what I'm talking about.

Help yourself

I don’t give a big flying rip about your addiction to a TYPE II ERROR.

I love jangling sensibilities that are wedded to fossilized constructs with puzzle pieces if find plausible.

I love jangling stereotypic ignorant boxes folks tend to put me in.

Beyond that, check the ideas out yourselves or have your jaws break the sidewalk when stuff is outted in a rush in a crisis. Not my jaw at risk.

Strange map; a lot of those western blue areas are over 6,000 feet above sea level, yet nothing along the Columbia & Snake systems are blue; nor is the Great Lakes system.

Niagara, NY, is less than 700’ elevation. Albany, on the Hudson is only 300-400 feet above sea level; and even Troy is only 500’.

Bismark, ND, far up the Missouri River, is only about 1,700’, yet NONE of those areas are shown as “submerged”.

What's the rationale?

In other words you have no proof. I’m shocked.

Spare me your type 1 and type 2 errors B.S.

You spew a lot of words but let me tell you, quality over quantity, especially when the quantity is simply ridiculous drivel.

If your so concerned, prove it so that we all can be saved. I’ll wait.

To be honest, I think you’ve been pulling people’s chains and you don’t believe this woo. If you do, I fear for your mental health and I’m not kidding.

You must not have been paying much attention to the weekend web panic. Betelgeuse to go supernova this year! Two suns in the sky at once!! Gamma ray burst requires SPF 6 billion!!!

Then some of the saner voices came in and explained how far away Betelgeuse is and that it won't destroy us.

Dr. Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy blog talks about it, along with the award winning lines "As bad as that was, it got worse when The Huffington Post weighed in, adding their own nonsense to the story," and "instead of going away, it gets picked up by that bastion of antiscience, The Huffington Post. "

I wondered about that, too.

The only plausible puzzle pieces I have to speak to that is a chunk of them claiming that there’s going to be a LOT of MAJOR land changes including major sinking of some and rising of some.

The Bible only hints at such.

And, like many prophecies, things are usualy crystal clear only after the fact.

NM high desert is a mile high as is Denver. I’d just as soon stay that high! LOL.

Actually, I’d rather be removed on the first ELEVATOR !UP!

Naw. You are welcome to stew in your own ignorance.

If you have no respect for the fact that a TYPE II ERROR is as POTENTIALLY DEADLY AN ARROR AS A TYPE I ERROR

then there’s probably nothing God Himself could tell you that you’d believe

My research and opinions and puzzle piece offerings and commentary are for those with ears to hear and eyes to see and some objectivity in such matters.

Doesn’t appear you qualify on any of those counts.

Then enlighten me. Don’t use any of that statistics B.S either, exactly where does that apply anywhere, wait I get it, you think it makes you sound smart and allows you to avoid answering the question. You expect everyone to bow to your greatness and do your work but you never answer anyone’s questions.

Is it possible G_D created life on other planets? Why not, it doesn’t say either way in the Bible and G_D is free to do what he wants. But to be honest, I don’t believe in UFOs, kook circles or your critters.

I hate to crush your reality but do you really think the B.S. you post is true, really?

I happen to be a Church attending Christian, I don’t need YOU to save me, that’s been taken care of by someone who sacrificed himself so someone who is very undeserving (like me) of his sacrifice won’t spend an eternity in hell with you. You do know what the punishment for false prophets is?

See how it’s done, I create these things called sentences.
You write gibberish, I think I know why. You don’t want to back yourself into a corner and when you do, instead of clarifying your errors or even thinking of being wrong, you come up with that type I & II B.S. to avoid answering the question so in your mind, you were correct.

I think if I sat next to you on a flight, I’d kill myself like in Airplane! where everyone Ted Stryker sits next to commits suicide.
