road cut at Kingman Arizona

Tour day 6: Slip sliding away

The morning of the last day of the geology tour went past a great road cutting at Kingman, Arizona.

After a stop at one end, where Andreas Otte explained what we were looking at and Michael Steinbacher’s ideas of what the EU geology was showing or could imply, we then did another pass and return along the sidehill cut.

As well as the geological slip faults to be seen with this road cut there are also the variations in material for the different strata.

Michael Steinbacher explains all this in the free video below. It looks into the disappearing basalt mystery.

It has been suggested that granite can have an external cause in an electric universe. It is not necessary for it to be incurred by magmatic intrusion, which has not reached the surface. Of course, then the question arises, how is it in this respect with basalt rock, that, according to prevailing doctrine, consists of magmatic material that reached the surface of the earth and then rapidly cooled?

The southwestern United States provides in this regard several interesting viewing opportunities. Thus we find for example in Kingman an interesting road cut at I 40, where it is clearly visible that the basalt rests on other layers that are not basalt.

… The basalt at Kingman (which looks as fresh as on the first day) is found at about 1,000 m above sea level. Both in Peach Springs and Oatman, elevations of at least 1,200 meters above sea level are found. A lava flow to Kingman would be theoretically possible. However, to the west of Kingman, in a north-south direction, a wide valley filled with sediment (700 m above sea level at Oatman) stretches along, which falls slightly to the south. One would then have to assume that the lava had filled the entire valley east of Oatman to reach Kingman. But lava would actually flow in this valley to the south in accordance with the topography. Let’s assume that there existed a barrier that prevented that. Even under these conditions, one would then have to assume that in the valley for many miles, several hundred feet high basalt (including the fictitious barrier) had eroded away without residue, while it didn’t erode at all at the no less exposed location in Kingman. Toward Peach Springs the situation is only slightly better. No deep valley hinders the lava flow, but instead 1,500 m high mountains. Otherwise, there’s the same problem: an extremely selective erosion process ranging from unaffected to total removal and acting very specifically and devoid of logic to achieve today’s conditions.
