Inside Meteor Crater

Postby Minimalist » Sun Jan 24, 2010 8:13 am

A collection of shots from inside the crater. They have a viewing spot which is a concrete walkway down to a platform. Maybe 75-100 feet down (out of the 700 foot total distance.)

Some of these will give an idea of how difficult the terrain would be for the casual climber.

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Is there any visible physical evidence – apart from the overall size of the crater – of the super high temperatures, extreme pressures, and unimaginable shock waves that must have occurred on impact? Like high incidences of glazed colored and fused rock in the wide area?

Not that I could see.

The whole surrounding area is a flat plateau. Geologists claim that it has been like that for millions of years.

Very strange that there wouldn't be any other evidence that can (must) be attributed to that impact...

The Chixclub crater is supposed to have created/sprayed zillions of microscopic 'spherules' and other ejector debris wide and far. Odd that there wouldn't be something like that for the Arizona crater.
