With all the talk of global disasters, excessive earthquakes and crazy, erratic, extreme weather, sinkholes also appear to be on the rise. One may ask, what in the hell is going on inside the Earth, that is kicking our ass above it?
I’m not here to talk about a polar shift or cosmic alignments and I’m not here to ramble about global warming and the human input involved, either. I’m just curious about the increase in these “sinkholes” throughout the globe. Is it really as normal as some people play it off to be? Is it really normal for these things to occur all the time? If so, is more attention simply being drawn to them now, due to all the doom & gloom chatter of late?
I don’t know, but I will say that you would have to be an utterly ignorant being to have lived during the last few years with a functioning brain, to have not noticed that harsh living conditions have been on the rise.
Oh, before we go any further, one must dabble a little Wikipedia crap down from two separate entries to form one good description, in the event that some people are unsure what a sinkhole actually is, here: “A natural depression or hole in the Earth’s surface caused by the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks or when loose soil, loess or other non-cohesive material lies on top of a limestone substratum containing fissures and joints. Rain and surface water gradually wash this material through these fissures and into caves beneath. Over time, this creates a depression on the landscape of varying depth. Sinkholes may vary in size from 3.3 to 2,000 ft. – both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. Sinkholes may be formed gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide.”
On this post, I will share a few helpful resource links and provide some friendly images of sinkholes along with some not-so-friendly ones. In short, sinkholes are apart of life, whether speaking metaphorically or literally, albeit it does have the tendency to make the pedestrian commoner wonder just what all in the hell is going on inside this Earth. Many scientists and reporters would have you believe that most of these inconveniences known as sinkholes are due to collapsed earth via floods and the superfluity of rainfall, however there are many possible causes nonetheless.
An excellent resource page for these pitfalls featuring ground-based snares, can be found here: “Information & Discussion about the Earth Changes and the Pending Pole Shift.”
From there, you will see many images and descriptions of these sinkholes that seem to be happening a lot more than the general public is aware of. I mean, seriously, we can only provide the masses with so much news about global disasters during any normal span of time because, like, some celebrity might have a pimple on their face that you need to know about or some poorly talented “pop star” might have received their first million dollar payout or, uh, we might have to fill the headlines up on a news channel featuring a bad break-up between two popular transvestites that had horrible luck due to an “operation gone wrong.” Ha! Anyway, you get the point…
Now, back to this whole sinkhole thingy, from Zeta Talk, they give a nice intro (on the last page I linked to) with: “What happens to rock layers under a diagonal pull, or [that are] being pulled apart? As can be seen during recent years, this has resulted in derailing trains, sinkholes suddenly appearing, gas and water main breaks, torn roadways and separating bridges. Despite the effect on man, crawling about on the surface of what they assume to be terra firma [which means, solid earth], these changes are superficial. When the pulling starts, weak points break and thereafter the plumbing and roadways hold, giving the impression that the pulling has stopped, but this is misleading.” You can read more from the prior link about the Earth changes and pending polar shift, as you’ll also find an image on that page showing a cross-sectional view of a tectonic plate in a “stretch zone,” for example.
I usually don’t like to elaborate about the obvious, as I’ll let the links and images do most of the talking here, unless, of course, we get an opinionated blast within the comment field down below, although there should be a sufficient amount of content above the fold, nevertheless.
If you just can’t get enough of this sunken subject, check out some more of these Recent Sinkholes [link is no longer active].
Do you think that sinkholes are on the rise?
