Here in this place that many of us call home, Utah and surrounding, we have some of the most interesting, unusual and mysterious geologic formations which results in some of the most beautiful landscapes and scenery. One in particular That I believe took place about 1100 years ago despite the guess of the academics of it occurring over a period of millions of years, The Colorado Plateau Uplift, My goal in this is to shed light on why so many cultures of the past who made their attempts to find this place, and some did, but they couldn’t keep it. I think you will see why the Aztecs left their homelands in humility. Some of you might get lost on some of the points made.
A year ago at the presentation I made some implicating
statements concerning this place in that… in the distant pass, it has been
referred to by several names, all seemingly stemming from a common origin,
Aztlan being the ancient home of the Aztec in which they mysteriously left for
some unknown reason… perhaps we will find the answer today. Affalon, a
mysterious place where King Arthur would disappear to across the sea to some
unknown land, perhaps today we may learn where that place is. Atlan-tis in
which Plato writes existed on an Island surrounded by a sea and said to have
been swallowed up by the sea… or was it the sea which disapeared? And then
there is the place mentioned in the Book of Genesis where in one of the four rivers
that went out of the Garden of Eden, the River Pison is said to travel trough a
land full of Gold, this land was called Havilah. After a year I still wonder if
these four names are not of the same origin. Some believe that where Adam went
after being expelled from the garden of Eden, was a place they call Adam ondi
Ahman, and we know that when was he was expelled from the garden, he went east
At that early time, the Uinta Mountains was an
About 2000 years ago that all changed with a catastrophic event that according to some records lasted 3 hours, mountains became valleys and valleys became mountains, the Uintas became much higher due to water pressure causing them to rise even higher,
with the tops of the mountains splitting open and the underground rivers came up out of the earth and flowed down which in part fed the creation of Lake Bonneville and the much ignored and now gone Lake Uinta or what is shown on the old Spanish maps, as Lake Copala.
Underground rivers and the Waters of Ripliancum?
There might be a few here who are wondering where do these underground rivers come from? How is it they even exist? I will try to keep this short and simple but I don’t know that this is possible. The worst past catastrophic event occurred about 2700 BC. It shattered
If we look at the area of
But… if this is true I thought…
(6) this means that somewhere in the north there would be no doubt be whirl pools, with that amount of water being sucked in, there would have to be giant whirl pools along the fracture of the ring of fire off the coast of Alaska. And guess what?.... there is… they are located some 3800 miles from the equator. Science calls these unusual and misunderstood phenomena Eddys. I prefer Whirl Pools.
Now how did these huge fractures get there?
In order for these fractures to exist it would require some literal earth shattering events…
The most horrific geologic earth changing event that ever occurred was around 4700 years ago in the days of Peleg, “When the Earth divided” (Genesis 10:25) and I don’t mean continental drift, or tectonics plate movement, or some Super Continent called Pangea all of which is an absolute fallacy.
In those days what we consider as a North Pole existed
at what is today known as Iceland until some outside astronomic source such as
a passing celestial body, caused in an instant magnetic disturbance in our
earths magnetic field and cause a shift moving North near 4000 miles from Iceland
to Alaska near Anchorage.
When everything had settled our new North existed off
the coast of
This is the very event that created what is known as
the ring of fire, a fracture that surrounds the pacific ocean from north to
south and back. This is the event that created some of the most magnificent
mountains here in the west not the mention the volcanoes all along the western
shores of North and south America. Today it is taught that these mountains were
created over millions of years as a result of subjection or tectonic plate
movement, when in fact these mountain were created pretty much in a day. Keep
in mind, there were no people on this continent when this happened. However
there were many varieties of Animals including Mammoth, and horses and their
shredded remains can still be seen in the frozen muck in
The Colorado Plateau Uplift 880 AD
Many have wonder what it was that caused the Aztec to leave their near paradise of Aztlan, I to had wondered at their only words shedding light on the reason. All they said is that they left in humility. I assure you that for any group of proud men to give up their homelands and brought into humility would have had to have been a pretty big event to have that kind of impact. Prior to this event of what is referred to as the Colorado Plateau uplift, as I said this area here in the basin, this High country desert, was once a semi tropical environment, with many waters and rivers and a couple of very large lakes along with others. With all that now gone, it became high country desert and I would suspect the Aztec thought the Gods were angry at them as a result of there iniquities, and they were swept off.
What is the Colorado Plateau? What is the Colorado Plateau Uplift? Well we could see what academia has to say by visiting the all knowing WIKI… but if we do that we would just be reinforcing the theories of imaginative men. However I highly recommend that if you have an interest, read the WIKI write ups so that you fully understand the contrary as to what I am going to tell you. The short of it is according to the academics, the Colorado Plateau is an uplift in the Earths surface which was caused by pressure, which is correct, and the pushing up of earth as a result of the Pacific plate out there west of California pushing under the San Juan Fuca Plate which is America and this which has caused a portion to break away but within. and known as the Colorado Plateau. It is said that this occurred over a period of millions of years, when in fact for the most part occurred in a day.
What caused the uplift? Well the earths crust had already been fracture by at least two previous cataclysmic events so it really wouldn’t take much to get this area to shift again but in this case compared to the two previous events, this was actually quite minor. However, the Cedar City Piute described it like this
The Romans described it
in “A.D. 880:
We have mentioned the events described by the Cedar City Piute earlier but many other events were simultaneously occurring.
Now continue around the south end of the Plateau and notice the Lava fields around Prescott, Showlow, Sunset Crater Volcanoes, the Zuni and Navajo reservations, Jornada, and the lava fields and flows all the way up to Taos and beyond into the Colorado mountains where in you have lava flows and the same mountain top formations as you find in the Uintas.
What caused all of this? and did it occur over millions of years?
The event of the Colorado Plateau uplift puzzled me for some time, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt it did not occur as science has said and initiated the way they said, the evidence is profound to the contrary… but I also knew it wasn’t a pole shift.
However one day while studying the southern regions of the uplift, I stumbled across something I have seen and pondered many times, why I had not made the connection sooner, I do not know… but there it was…
Reading the academics view found in WIKI, I find conflicts and conjecture which amounts to nothing more than theory although the article is written as a matter of fact. With this said let me remind you that my views must also be considered as theory and I openly admit it.
Is meteor crater as young as they say? Well sort of, but not 50,000 years young, in all probability it is about 1100 years young. The reasoning behind my confidence in this is the evidence involved and what some might see as coincident. I think it is a pretty good guess that all the volcanic activity in that area and extending around and away, is likely connected and we have it on very good report that Lava falls was flowing roughly 1100 years ago, but not just Lava Falls,
Crater just 20 miles to the
The Meteor that created Meteor Crater is said to have hit with a force of 10 megatons and was estimated as being about 160 ‘ wide and weighing in at 100 Million tons, Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs were estimated at 20,000 tons of TNT, ONE Megaton is equal to 1 million tons of TNT. The point being, do you think this impact was enough to set in motion the chaos that already fractured earth from previous catastrophic events? More than likely.
Unfortunately in 1902 when Daniel Barringer who was a mining engineer and business man had staked a mining claim in the crater and obtained a land patient with the motive to extract the meteor, it was no where to be found. It is estimated that near 30 tons of fragments were found scattered around the site. So now we have a meteor crater with no meteor. Well in the WIKI articles you will find the use of certain words which should be a clue to all who reads them, “Must have been” “is thought to be” “probably” ect… It is so much easier to just admit they don’t know… all because they could not find a meteor, it must of vaporized upon impact…. Now in your mind I want you to picture 100 Million tons of solid iron “Vaporizing”… poof!
In all likelihood their missing meteor or at least a large chunk of it, after ricocheting off the presumed bedrock below,
But what summed it up for me that Meteor Crater is more than likely our cause of this chain of events surrounding the Colorado Plateau uplift 1100 years ago. This is the very wording the academics use to excuse why the crater does not show the signs of an age of 50,000 years and clearly displays a very recent occurrence. From WIKI….
The crater was created about 50,000 years ago during the Pleistocene epoch, when the local climate on the Colorado Plateau was much cooler and damper. The area was an open grassland dotted with woodlands inhabited by mammoths and giant ground sloths.
The object that excavated the crater was a nickel-iron meteorite about 160 ft (50 m) across. The speed of the impact has been a subject of some debate. Modeling initially suggested that the meteorite struck at up to 45,000 mph (20 km/s), but more recent research suggests the impact was substantially slower, at 29,000 mph (12.8 km/s). About half of the impactor's bulk is believed to have been vaporized during its descent through the atmosphere. Impact energy has been estimated at about 10 megatons TNT The meteorite was mostly vaporized upon impact, leaving few remains in the crater.
crater's formation, the rim is thought to have lost 50–65 ft
(15–20 m) of height at the rim crest as a result of natural erosion.
Similarly, the basin of the crater is thought to have roughly 100 ft
(30 m) of additional postimpact sedimentation from lake sediments
and alluvium. Very few remaining craters are visible on Earth, since
many have been erased by erosive
geological processes. The relatively young age of Meteor Crater, paired with
So with all this said, and I know it is a lot to swallow but the evidences not presented are even more profound, do you think something like this could have caused the Aztecs to leave their homeland? The point to this was not only to bring the cataclysmic possibilities to the readers attention but also to give them some idea as to what is so important about this place here north of the basin. Many cultures have sought after it knowing it exists but they could not find it or those who did weren’t sure they found it and then couldn’t keep it, some have been led to it by the hand of God and they never knew what it was and is, or represents. If my research is correct, I believe with a high probability, that this place has been called in the past, Aztlan, Afflon, Ophir, Atlan, and Havilah with names associated with it nearby, Ripliancum, Sidon, Pison and a few I am certain no mater who you might be would not accept…. It truly was a land of many waters, rivers and fountains and full of Gold.
