Hope you are all well and inspired this week. We have had contact with several people recently who have had health issues. We do want you to know that we do pray for each person who does write us concerning any problem they may be experiencing.
The first article below once again sheds light on just how far beyond our mortal minds is the mind of God. Secular science will never be able to completely figure out God's crowning creation, man. "The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men." (1 Corinthians 1:25)
"Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish." (Isaiah 44:24-25)
If you are unfamiliar with "time dilation", which most of us are, the following short video may help you to understand the first article entitled "American Physicist and British Author discover same afterlife proof." We hope this article will be a blessing and encouragement to you, especially as we are so inundated with a cacophony of what would seem to be a myriad of negative news stories from around the world.
American Physicist and British Author discover same afterlife proof

Historic scientific accident: British author and binary mind theorist Anthony Peake corroborates American Physicist George Hammond on time-dilation and the afterlife
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK - A US physicist who has been researching a microtubule theory of Life After Death for several decades is amazed that he has found a second voice in British binary mind theorist Anthony Peake.
Cape Cod resident George Hammond's theory involves in his words, "a last minute relativistic time dilation which provides an Afterlife which actually occurs microseconds before death but because of the enormous time dilation appears to occur after death".
Thinking he must be the only researcher to have stumbled upon this truth, Hammond has published the theory in 2nd rank academic journals and widely on Usenet without being able to get anyone's attention.
The time-dilation solution to the age-old question of life after death seemed to Hammond to be something of a virtual miracle.
He was therefore duly astonished when he accidentally came across Anthony Peake's "Cheating the Ferryman" theory , published in 2006, during a Google search of life after death. That Peake proposed the same exact time dilation solution to the problem stunned the physicist. Says Hammond in a post on the Anthony Peake Cheating the Ferryman international forum, " I was flabbergasted! How could a non-physicist possibly arrive at such a profound physics theory!"
Peake's theory - which has been lauded by the Journal of Near Death Studies - takes its name from the ancient myth of Charon, the Ferryman, who escorts the dead across the River Styx to the realm of Death. Peake theorizes that we have a second self within the structures of the brain called "the Daemon", who enable us to cheat death and avoid this passage.
Hammond immediately sent Peake an email and received an amazed reply from the Briton the same day.
Said Hammond to Metro Media Consulting Group on Wednesday:
"It is high time this portentous event reached the ears of the public. I am still in an absolute state of astonishment and wonder that a powerful writer and scientific-sociologist could be the only other person in the entire world to discover this "time dilated Resurrection" theory! Apparently Tony discovered it from empirical neuropsychological data in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and Near Death Experiences while I came to it from a physics study of the subconscious Microtubule function of the Brain.
I have been in personal touch with Prof. Stuart Hameroff about this theory by the way and he actually said he thought it was entirely plausible... coming from the world's leading authority on microtubules, that is significant! Surely this is the most historic scientific breakthrough in Psychology and Religion since St. Paul wrote down the original theory in I Corinthians Ch. 15:35-55 with a quill pen. This historic scientific accident is probably the closest thing we will ever see to an actual miracle!"
"But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Corinthians 15:35-55)
Peake is author of "Is There Life After Death?: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die" (2006, Chartwell Books), "The Daemon: A Guide to Your Extraordinary Secret Self" (Arcturus Publishing, 2008), and "The Out of Body Experience: The History and Science of Astral Travel" (Watkins Publishing, 2011). He has lectured extensively across Europe and the United States, and has appeared on numerous talk radio and television programs.

In the midst of all the turmoil and great confusion sweeping through the Middle East - "as travail upon a woman with child" - Jerusalem appears to be on a collision course with the International Community at the UN General Assembly....
"We are facing a diplomatic-political tsunami that the majority of the public is unaware of and that will peak in September," said Ehud Barak, Israel's defense minister, at a conference in Tel Aviv last month. "It is a very dangerous situation, one that requires action." He added, "Paralysis, rhetoric, inaction will deepen the isolation of Israel."
"The world is facing an important shift in global history which is "no less transformative" than the "epochal" year of 1989, when numerous governments fell across Eastern Europe", Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon slammed Israel's policy and called for "the division of Jerusalem". Ban said: "The target date for completing the Palestinian Authority's two-year State-building program is fast-approaching."
"The UN chief said that "a way must be found for Jerusalem to emerge as a capital of two States, Israel and Palestine, with arrangements for holy sites acceptable for all."
"The annual attempts to resume the Passover sacrifice received a first significant rabbinical backing recently. Safed's Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, a prominent religious Zionism leader, has called on the public to perform the sacrifice mitzvah on the eve of the Jewish holiday, in about two weeks."
"According to Rabbi Eliyahu, there is a halachic, legal and public possibility to offer a Passover sacrifice these days. During the lesson, he quoted senior rabbinical authorities, adding that Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalisher - one of the founders of modern and religious Zionism - had asked the Turkish sultan to allot an area on the Temple Mount for the erection of an altar for a Passover sacrifice."
"The Safed rabbi went on to say that the Passover sacrifice could be slaughtered in front of the Dome of the Rock plaza, although the Temple no longer exists and the people of Israel are defined as "tameh met" (in a status of impurity which comes from contact with a dead body)."
"In order to overcome the greatest obstacle, beyond the political problem, an altar must be erected, the rabbi said."
"If we haven't lived the drama, we've seen it depicted in movies and on TV. The patient in the intensive care unit hovers between life and death while anxious family and friends fidget and pace in the waiting room and hallway, praying for the best, preparing for the worst, scanning the faces of the doctors and nurses as they shuffle in and out of the ICU, and hanging onto their every guarded word. Will the patient survive? If so, will there be permanent damage? Will life ever be the same?
That scene is being played out today on the big stage, and we're all players. The patient on life support is our world, and the financial (political, military & religious) policy makers are the medical professionals. The rest of us watch and wait. A near-fatal blow to the economy would have been hard enough to recover from, but looming complications worsen the odds. Will terrorism, nationalism, and base egoism proliferate like viruses in a compromised immune system? Will society's moral fabric suffer a complete breakdown? With all that going on, can multiple ecological threats be held at bay? Can international relations take the strain? What's the prognosis?
There is both good news and bad news, as it turns out--bad news in the short term, but good news in the long term. According to numerous passages in the Bible that foretell future events, things are going to get much worse before they get better; but when they get better, they will get unbelievably better! We can't stop the bad from happening, but we can prepare for it. To be forewarned is to be forearmed, so the first thing we should do is find out what to expect. The next thing we should do is equip ourselves to go through those things, to come out on top, and to be able to help others do the same." (Keith Phillips, Activated Vol 10, Issue 5)
Salt Lake City goes wallet-free with Isis
Trial run for national rollout
By Bill Ray
6th April 2011
The plan will see Salt Lake City's public transport system accepting pay-by-wave from a mobile phone by the middle of next year. Retailers have also been encouraged to adopt Near Field Communications technology at the point of sale, as Salt Lake City strives to become The Place You Can Leave Your Wallet At Home.
Isis was set up less than six months ago: a consortium of US network operators including AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. The consortium is dedicated to ensuring that electronic payments based on NFC keep their secure element in the SIM - under the control of the network operator, not the handset manufacturer or bank-card supplier - by promoting the technology and business models associated with it. (Isis (pronounced /ËˆaÉª.sÉªs/ or eye-sis) was a goddess in Egyptian mythology. She was the sister and wife of Osiris, and they had a son named Horus. Isis also protected children and was one of the greatest goddesses. She was also the greatest magician and goddess of magic. Wikipedia)
In Salt Lake City, that involves working with the Utah Transit Authority to convert all the buses and trains to accept NFC payments, as well as flooding the area with NFC handsets and SIM chips.
"I would like to express our excitement that the Salt Lake City area has been chosen to lead the roll-out of Isis mobile payments," said Mayor Ralph Becker's canned statement, though looking a little closer it becomes obvious why Salt Lake was chosen to lead the US into contactless payments.
The Utah Transit Authority already uses proximity payment cards, deployed in 2009, so adding NFC functionality to public transport is a matter of software not hardware, and while the City might be the capital of Utah it has a population somewhat smaller than Northampton, so presents a nicely sized area for experimentation rather than a sprawling metropolis where deployment would be more challenging.
But the transition to electronic payments isn't going to happen overnight, and it's good to see Isis doing something practical, and with a reasonably aggressive timetable. It will be interesting to see how the locals take to paying by wave.

Libya: Britain to continue Libyan mission 'until Gaddafi overthrown'
Britain on Wednesday said for the first time that it would continue the Libyan mission until Col Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown as it forged an international pact to bankroll and sustain the rebels.
By Damien McElroy, Doha 13 Apr 2011
At a meeting in Doha attended by members of the Libya Contact Group - comprised of European, US and Middle East allies - William Hague, the foreign secretary, declared Col Gaddafi would be a threat for as long as he remained in Libya. A ceasefire would not be enough.
"It will end at some stage with the departure of Gaddafi, with a political process in Libya that is a more inclusive process," Mr Hague said.
It will raise concerns about another protracted war, coming on the back of the ongoing commitment in Afghanistan and the six-year long Iraq war.
At a time when Britain is implementing deep cuts in its defence and foreign office budgets, the commitment will put severe pressure on stretched Whitehall departments.
Already half the diplomatic service officials based at the Foreign Office in London have been engaged on the Middle East upheaval, particularly the Libyan crisis, since February.
Terrorism experts have also warned that intelligence resources in MI6 and GCHQ have been diverted from countering international Islamic radicals to undermining the Libya regime.
The coalition forces agreed to a statement yesterday which will provide financial backing, armour for rebel forces and humanitarian aid. Britain is giving the rebels 1,000 sets of body armour from surplus UK defence supplies.
Reading the final statement, Crown Prince Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani said the group wanted "an immediate end to all attacks against civilians, and for Gaddafi and his regime to pull back all regime forces from Libyan cities they have forcibly entered, occupied or besieged".
However it stopped short of agreeing to arm the rebels, something the Italians had earlier called for.
"It is institutionally but also, I think, morally justified, since Gaddafi's change in tactics," Franco Frattini, the Italian foreign minister had said. "He is hiding tanks in streets exactly to make impossible Nato air strikes to destroy tanks."
Mr Hague stressed that the Government was only handing over "non-lethal" supplies, but admitted that Mr Frattini's reading of the UN resolutions would in certain circumstances "provide people with the means to defend the civilian population".
Message from Colonel Mu'ummar Qaddafi

Pravda, 13.04.2011 Translated by Professor Sam Hamod, Ph.D. In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful…
For 40 years, or was it longer, I can’t remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools, and when they were hungry, I gave them food. I even made Benghazi into farmland from the desert, I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Reagan, when he killed my adopted orphaned daughter, he was trying to kill me, instead he killed that poor innocent child. Then I helped my brothers and sisters from Africa with money for the African Union.
I did all I could to help people understand the concept of real democracy, where people’s committees ran our country. But that was never enough, as some told me, even people who had 10 room homes, new suits and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish as they were they wanted more. They told Americans and other visitors, that they needed “democracy” and “freedom” never realizing it was a cut throat system, where the biggest dog eats the rest, but they were enchanted with those words, never realizing that in America, there was no free medicine, no free hospitals, no free housing, no free education and no free food, except when people had to beg or go to long lines to get soup.
No, no matter what I did, it was never enough for some, but for others, they knew I was the son of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we’ve had since Salah-al-Deen, when he claimed the Suez Canal for his people, as I claimed Libya, for my people, it was his footsteps I tried to follow, to keep my people free from colonial domination—from thieves who would steal from us.
Now, I am under attack by the biggest force in military history, my little African son, Obama wants to kill me, to take away the freedom of our country, to take away our free housing, our free medicine, our free education, our free food, and replace it with American style thievery, called “capitalism,” but all of us in the Third World know what that means, it means corporations run the countries, run the world, and the people suffer. So, there is no alternative for me, I must make my stand, and if Allah wishes, I shall die by following His path, the path that has made our country rich with farmland, with food and health, and even allowed us to help our African and Arab brothers and sisters to work here with us, in the Libyan Jamahiriya.
I do not wish to die, but if it comes to that, to save this land, my people, all the thousands who are all my children, then so be it.
Let this testament be my voice to the world, that I stood up to crusader attacks of NATO, stood up to cruelty, stood up to betrayal, stood up to the West and its colonialist ambitions, and that I stood with my African brothers, my true Arab and Muslim brothers, as a beacon of light. When others were building castles, I lived in a modest house, and in a tent. I never forgot my youth in Sirte, I did not spend our national treasury foolishly, and like Salah-al-Deen, our great Muslim leader, who rescued Jerusalem for Islam, I took little for myself…
In the West, some have called me “mad”, “crazy”, but they know the truth yet continue to lie, they know that our land is independent and free, not in the colonial grip, that my vision, my path, is, and has been clear and for my people and that I will fight to my last breath to keep us free, may Allah almighty help us to remain faithful and free.
Before It's News
Will Big Oil Trigger the New Madrid Megaquake?
12 April 2011 09:19
by Zen Gardner
Something really fishy, as usual, is going on in the oil industry. And again it's regarding the Gulf.
Several newspapers recently announced that BP was being given permission to restart drilling and would even start new wells in the explosive Macondo region where the last catastrophe was precipitated.
Yes, insane corporate greed at the least. The very least.
On April 4th it was reported:
Oil giant BP plans to restart deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico this summer just a year after the Deepwater Horizon explosion that sparked the worst oil spill in history.
The group hopes to start work on 10 wells in the Gulf after being granted permission by US regulators to continue work halted at the time of the drilling moratorium imposed after the spill.
The move is likely to fuel public anger, coming just a year after the devastating oil spill, which happened when a BP well exploded, killing 11 workers and causing an environmental crisis.
This permission that was reported to have been given by some judge, however, was thereafter adamantly denied, and the articles about this permission seem to have been carefully scrubbed from the net.
Here's the official denial.
The U.S. interior secretary on Monday rejected media reports that BP was striking a deal to resume deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico a year after the worst oil spill in U.S. history. UK media have said BP is in talks with the U.S. government to restart drilling at existing wells less than a year after a blast on the Deepwater Horizon rig ruptured BP's underwater Macondo well.
Makes you wonder all the more.
Don't worry, they'll get their permission. This is "testing the waters" so to speak.
Fact Is It's Already Underway
Every day millions of gallons of oil are being extracted from beneath the Gulf and Mississippi basin, all the way to the heart of the New Madrid fault line through Arkansas on up into Illinois and Indiana.
Not only are oil and natural gas being extracted, but chemically enhanced water is being pumped INTO the rock strata to free up more oil and natural gas in a process called fracking.
Hydraulic fracturing (called "fracking," or "Hydrofracking") is a process that results in the creation of fractures in rocks. The fracturing is done from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations to increase the rate and ultimate recovery of oil and natural gas.
Hydraulic fractures may be natural or man-made and are extended by internal fluid pressure which opens the fracture and causes it to extend through the rock. Natural hydraulic fractures include volcanic dikes, sills and fracturing by ice as in frost weathering. Man-made fluid-driven fractures are formed at depth in a borehole and extend into targeted formations. The fracture width is typically maintained after the injection by introducing a proppant into the injected fluid. Proppant is a material, such as grains of sand, ceramic, or other particulates, that prevent the fractures from closing when the injection is stopped.
Double-whammy: Cracking the rock strata while poisoning the water table.
A more telling illustration for what big oil is up to:
The parasitic oil industry destroying the earth like giant mosquitoes, sucking out its life blood while injecting an infected fluid in its place. Yes, the "invasion" is on and has been for a long time.
Environmental groups have been protesting this horrific poisoning of the water table but in vain. That's how it is when Big Oil is involved--everyone gets bought off;
With little oversight from the federal government, a myriad of chemicals are being injected underground in the name of energy exploration in the West. Among these chemicals, biocides are considered to pose a serious threat to environmental and public health.
Hydraulic fracturing, known as "fracking" or "frac'ing" for short, is the process approximately 90 percent of oil and gas wells in the U.S. undergo to facilitate extraction. Biocides are used to kill microorganisms that can interfere with other fluids and methods used to stimulate extraction, and to prevent corrosion to pipes.
In 2005, the oil and gas industry was granted an exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act, allowing the injection of toxic fluids directly into groundwater without oversight by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Prior to enacting this policy, EPA conducted a study that concludes fracking poses a minimal threat to underground sources of drinking water and determines no further study of fracking is warranted; the study has raised criticism from both inside and outside of the agency. Despite concern from public health professionals and landowners who have experienced tainted water themselves (read Laura Amos' story), the agency has continued to require minimal regulation of the industry.
A Little Hard to Imagine?
Not when you know who the controllers are and how they're driven. We're talking not just bad, greedy people, but seriously evil intentions on the part of some. Not all, as so many are duped to follow along on the gravy train.
To have a foreknowledge of the potential effects on human life and the health of our planet and to pressure and bribe government agencies to comply to their wishes takes more than just greed. And the underlings just follow.
How The Quake Could Be Triggered
The New Madrid fault line is known to exist in the location in the red zone below, but conjectured to extend all the way into the Gulf of Mexico. It has seen severe quakes in the past, the most recent in recorded history being in 1811-1812 magnitude 7's and 8's.
The 1811-1812 New Madrid Earthquakes (pronounced /nuË ËˆmÃ¦drÉ¨d/) were an intense intraplate earthquake series beginning with an initial pair of very large earthquakes on December 16, 1811. These earthquakes remain the most powerful earthquakes ever to hit the eastern United States. These events, as well as the seismic zone of their occurrence, were named for the Mississippi River town of New Madrid, Louisiana Territory, now Missouri.
There are estimates that the earthquakes were felt strongly over roughly 130,000 square kilometers (50,000 square miles), and moderately across nearly 3 million square kilometers (1 million square miles). The historic 1906 San Francisco earthquake, by comparison, was felt moderately over roughly 16,000 square kilometers (6,000 square miles).
The following map indicates the effect range mentioned above in comparison with the LA quake of 1994. -
Pretty severe. This has to do with the nature of the rock under that area that transmits the energy more efficiently than that of the LA and California region.
Fracking Causes Earthquakes
When you drain vast cavities and split the earth underground you're bound to get some repercussions. Especially if it's right along a known fault line.
Concerned locals right on the New Madrid fault line in Arkansas know exactly what this "fracking" is doing and had this to say just a few weeks ago:
News: Arkansas Earthquakes in Greenbrier Increase as Natural Gas Drilling and Fracking Increase!!!
People in the Greenbrier, Arkansas area are certain of one thing: as the drilling and fracking increased in their area so did the earthquakes. Greenbrier resident, Dirk Deturck lives on a ridge between Guy and Greenbrier. He was watching the rigs. As soon as they increased drilling and fracking on the Greenbrier side, then the Greenbrier quakes started increasing in intensity and frequency. "They feel really different now." Deturck said. He described the sensation as waves rolling underneath them and when it hit it sounds like a "boom."
He believes the injection wells have a lot to do with the quakes, but blames all of the activity including fracking and compressor stations. During the snow storm Deturk noticed all gas activity stopped: no compressors running, no drilling, no fracking and no injecting. Guess what? He said he looked at USGS data and there were no earthquakes for three days following the snow.
He also noticed a cluster of small quakes on the Tennessee side of the Mississippi River the same day as some larger ones in Greenbrier. He feared the gas production could trigger a "big one" and possibly set off the New Madrid Fault. We've had many assurances from experts from AGS that that will PROBABLY never happen, but still they tell us to make plans for emergency preparedness. Interesting.
(Just as the oil coming out of the ground lubricates our cars and other machinery, isn't it possible that that same oil lubricates the earths plates and the lack of it could also help create friction which would contribute to increased earthquakes? Ed)
The Connection Between the Gulf and the New Madrid Fault Line
Enter Jack Reed
Jack Reed is a retired Texaco geologist-geophysist who doesn't accept the widely held opinions regarding the New Madrid fault lines or a "passive gulf".
No wonder he's one of a very few voices. Today's science is made to fit the corporate and political need, not the other way around.
According to him, the Gulf was and is tectonically active -- and it is the likely origin for not only the New Madrid seismic activity, but also for the Middleton Place-Summerville seismic zone near Charleston, S.C. (Aug.2010)
"For all the years I have worked the Gulf of Mexico Basin I have been forced to accept the 'passive' Gulf formation theory, which holds that the only movement in the basin is updip sedimentary loading that moved the salt southward," Reed said. "But there is little evidence to support this theory, and it doesn't fit what is observed geologically or geophysically."
"This entire zone through the United States is suffering some type of tectonic activity that I believe is tied to the deeply buried tectonics in the Gulf of Mexico"
And they want to keep drilling there? Yes.
The methane bulge that appeared following the Deepwater Horizon explosion is in direct line with the New Madrid fault. And you think they don't know what they're doing? Pretty hard to believe. At the least it's criminal irresponsibility.
And now the "Great Central U.S. Shakeout?
So, while drilling continues the authorities are going to have some preparedness drills. Go figure.
They even have a website. Surreal.
Two of Indiana's earthquake preparedness drills, the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut scheduled for 19 April, and a training program in May for emergency management and response agencies are receiving increased interest following the devastating quake in Japan.
Hoosiers do have good reason to be prepared. Experts say it is only a matter of when, not if, Indiana will be rocked by a major earthquake emanating from the New Madrid or Wabash Valley seismic zone.
The Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) stated: "The probability for an earthquake of magnitude 6.0 or greater in the central U.S. is fairly significant in the near future, with a 25 to 40 percent chance of occurring in any 50-year time period." A quake with a magnitude of 7 to 8, the consortium warned, "could result in great loss of life and property damage in the billions of dollars."
And the drilling continues...
...and soon to the volcanic Macondo area again.
"And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found." Luke 21:11, Revelation 11:18, Revelation 16:20)
"For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." (Romans 8:22)
Study: Yellowstone volcano much larger than believed
This new image shows Yellowstone's volcanic plume reaching about 400 miles from east to west.
April 13th, 2011
A new kind of image suggests the giant volcanic plume lying under Yellowstone National Park is even bigger than previously thought.
University of Utah geophysicists used the electrical conductivity of the huge tongue of hot and partly molten rock to create an image. That image suggests the plume is even bigger than it appears in earlier images made with seismic waves.
"It's like comparing ultrasound and MRI in the human body; they are different imaging technologies," geophysicist Michael Zhdanov, principal author of the new studyÃ‚ and an expert on underground structures, said in a news release from the university.
A 2009 seismic study showed the plume dips downward from Yellowstone at an angle of 60 degrees and extends 150 miles west-northwest to a point at least 410 miles under the Montana-Idaho border - as far as seismic imaging could "see."
In the new study, images show the electrically conductive part of the plume dipping more gently, at an angle of perhaps 40 degrees to the west, and extending perhaps 400 miles from east to west. The geoelectric image can "see" only 200 miles deep.
The University of Utah study will be published soon in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
