                             A Hint of Vertical Tectonics – But Interpretations of



                                   New Evidence Are Still Serving A Failed Model





Bonatti’s most recent paper,6 co-authored with five others, tries further to explain vertical tectonics at the Romanche fracture zone.   

To me, the most interesting findings of Bonatti and Others (1994) are those related to the prominent, submerged transverse ridge that extends for several hundred kilometers parallel to the Romanche transfer zone.  The authors state:

Flat-top peaks on the summit of the transverse ridge are capped by acoustically transparent, weakly stratified, shallow water platform/lagunal/ reef limestones.  This limestone unit is a few hundred meters thick and overlies igneous basement.  Evaluation of the seismic reflection data as well as study of samples of carbonates, ventifact basaltic pebbles and gabbroic, peridotitic and basaltic rocks recovered on the transverse ridge, suggest that … the summit of the transverse ridge was above sea level at and before about 5 Ma [five million years ago].

So there you have it, a submerged, ridge-shaped former island right smack in the middle of the equatorial Atlantic. Is this island part of the remains of the southernmost portion of the Atlantis of Cayce’s readings? Maybe. Read further.

But how are we to explain Bonatti and Others’ five million years of submergence, when the readings would indicate that the island sank less than 19,400 years ago? If this transverse ridge was one of the remaining islands after a man-induced blowup, then it sank before about 12,000 BP because the last island of Atlantis, Poseidia, sank in 11,900 BP, according to two readings (see Table 1). But Bonatti and Others infer that the island sank long before the ice age, at the beginning of the Pliocene epoch, roughly five million years ago.

                                                  Pole Shifts To The Rescue




The only way to explain the time discrepancy is to assume that the Earth has experienced many pole shifts through the ages. A pole shift can radically alter sea levels and raise and lower blocks of the crust. What appears to Bonatti and Others to have happened only once, and five million years ago at that, could have happened many times over such a long period, if Cayce’s readings can be believed.

A respected geophysicist published his ideas on this subject in 1962.  W. Jardetzky, in his article, “Aperiodic pole shift and deformation of the Earth’s crust,”7 explained the formation of seamounts of the Pacific.  These are truncated volcanic cones that are presently submerged to various depths.  Jardetzky concluded that the formation of seamounts “is a result of simultaneous action of several factors, of which pole shift seems to be the most important.”

                                   A Connection To The Messinian Salinity Crisis





The Mediterranean Sea almost dried up (became desiccated) around five million years ago. This event occurred within the time frame proposed by Bonatti and Others for jostling of crustal blocks in the equatorial Atlantic.

Five German and British scientists8 determined that the desiccation of the Mediterranean Sea region

between 5.96 and 5.33 million years (Myr) ago—was one of the most dramatic events on Earth during the Cenozoic era. It resulted from the closure of marine gateways between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, the causes of which remain enigmatic. Here we use the age and composition of volcanic rocks to reconstruct the geodynamic evolution of the westernmost Mediterranean from the Middle Miocene epoch to the Pleistocene epoch (about 12.1-0.65 Myr ago). Our data show that a marked shift in the geochemistry of mantle-derived volcanic rocks, reflecting a change from subduction-related to intraplate-type volcanism, occurred between 6.3 and 4.8 Myr ago, largely synchronous with the Messinian salinity crisis. Using a thermomechanical model, we show that westward roll back of subducted Tethys oceanic lithosphere and associated asthenospheric upwelling provides a plausible mechanism for producing the shift in magma chemistry and the necessary uplift (1 km) along the African and Iberian continental margins to close the Miocene marine gateways, thereby causing the Messinian salinity crisis.

The shift in magma chemistry and 1 km (0.62 mi) uplift of the African and Iberian continental margins seems clearly to find a match with Bonatti and Others’ findings of transform migration and vertical tectonics at the Romanche fracture zone some 5 Myr or so ago. And Bonatti’s team believes that a pole shift was responsible for the vertical motions that it found in the equatorial Atlantic, not so far from Africa and Spain. Where Duggen and others worked.

One wonders whether Duggen and Others (2003) ever read the article by Bonatti and Others (1994). It’s clear, however, that even though Bonatti and Others had the sense to invoke a pole shift to supply the energy for the block motions that they studied, both Bonatti’s and Duggen’s groups attempt to explain their requirements for vertical tectonics, either largely or exclusively, by resorting to the plate-tectonics model of geodynamics.

                                                        Conclusions





There is plenty of evidence for formerly emerged crustal blocks in the floor of the equatorial Atlantic. And it is just possible that, for up to a few thousand years, these now-submerged blocks may have been islands left by the destruction of the Atlantis of Cayce’s readings. Destructions of various parts of Atlantis began 19,400 years ago (the first destruction) and continued until 11,900 BP when the final island of Poseidia sank, or over a period of 7,500 years. The islets of St. Peter and St. Paul could have been upthrust any time during or after the first destruction of Atlantis.

Bonatti and Others’ most recent paper (1994) makes a valiant attempt to explain the equatorial Atlantic tectonics scene, almost exclusively according to the sea-floor spreading and plate-tectonics theory. The authors invoke “jumping” ridges, uplift and sinking of micro crustal plates, and “migrating transform faults.” At one point, the authors invoke a pole shift. This is done to try to explain the migration of the “fossil” Romanche rift valley.

Actually, the article by Bonatti and Others is brilliant and who am I to cast aspersions on it. Our differences stem from contrasting sets of assumptions, and from the models of crustal dynamics that are built upon those assumptions.

Bonatti and Others assume that sea-floor spreading must be taking place in the equatorial Atlantic floor. Our model assumes that sea-floor spreading is not the driving mechanism behind sea-floor tectonics, except in near-MAR areas, following M. Keith’s model for the development and later submergence of the Atlantic Ocean floor. (Remember also that the Russian oceanographers reached the same conclusion, from their “hard data,” with regard to the limited amount of sea-floor spreading, and that localized only near the axis of the MAR).

Furthermore, our model of Atlantis’s geophysical history is based upon information channeled by Edgar Cayce that is assumed by us to be true for the broad history of sea-floor tectonics of the Atlantic Ocean basin. This psychic information is “tested” with our computerized procedure for determining the effects of pole shift on worldwide crustal dynamics and sea levels.

There is a major qualifier to the story of the submergence of southern Atlantis that I have woven in this article. Assuming that the Cayce readings on Atlantis are true, the following qualifier obtains. Mention of the sinking “of the southernmost portion” of the Atlantean continent in 364-6 may actually refer to sinking of a region that is farther north along the MAR, “near what would be termed the Sargasso Sea [that] first went into the depths” (364-4).

If that proves to be true, then the emergence evidence found by Bonatti and his associates, and by the Russian oceanographers, would at most represent merely collateral damage from the 7,500-year-long period of violent destruction of the Atlantean continent farther to the north. Thus, the crustal blocks currently submerged in the equatorial Atlantic Ocean might be too far south to qualify as parts of the former “southernmost portions of Atlantis.”

                                 Evidence of Atlantis North Of the Equatorial Zone





Let’s review three important readings on the destruction of Atlantis.

With the continued disregard of those that were keeping the pure race and the pure peoples, of those that were to bring all these laws as applicable to the Sons of God, man brought in the destructive forces as used for the peoples that were to be the rule, that combined with those natural resources of the gases, of the electrical forces, made in nature and natural form the first of the eruptions that awoke from the depth of the slow cooling earth, and that portion now near what would be termed the Sargasso Sea first went into the depths.

364-4; February 16, 1932

(Q) Describe in more detail the causes and effects of the destruction of the part of Atlantis now the Sargasso Sea.

(A) As there were those individuals that attempted to bring again to the mind of man more of those forces that are manifest by the closer association of the mental and spiritual, or the soul forces that were more and more as individual and personal forms in the world, the use of the these elements - as for the building up, or the passage of individuals through space - brought the uses of the gases then (in the existent forces), and the individuals being able to become the elements, and elementals themselves, added to that used in the form of what is at present known as the raising of the powers from the sun itself, to the ray that makes for disintegration of the atom, in the gaseous forces formed, and brought about the destruction in that portion of the land now presented, or represented, or called, Sargasso Sea.

364-11; April 29, 1932


The use of these influences by the Sons of Belial brought, then, the first of the upheavals; or the turning of the etheric rays' influence FROM the Sun - as used by the Sons of the Law of One - into the facet for the activities of same -produced what we would call a volcanic upheaval; and the separating of the land into SEVERAL islands - five in number.

Again, the first destruction of Atlantis occurred around 19,400 years ago when a huge portion of the island continent near or in the Sargasso Sea sank into the depths. The cause of this destruction was man-made. It produced a volcano-like eruption of unprecedented fury, originating as it did in the Earth’s lower crust and mantle. Would we not expect to find evidence for this upheaval somewhere in or around the Sargasso Sea?

Consider now the expedition of an international team of scientists to a submerged mountain on the MAR, in November and December 2000. The scientists studied the Atlantis Massif9, a large mountain of mantle rock that has been upthrust through younger rocks of the ocean floor. Check their website article, “Descent to Mid-Atlantic Ridge” for a marvelous virtual adventure. The two graphics used here are linked from this web article.


 
Note the square of light blue (“Field Area” to right) for the location of the Atlantis Massif, and recall that the first destruction of Atlantis affected the part of Atlantis near (or in) the Sargasso Sea. The location of the Atlantis Massif (Fig. 3) is in such a place. In my book, Coming Earth Changes, I suggested (p. 156) that the Sargasso Sea is bounded by 23º to 35º N and 35º to 72º W. This puts the location of the Atlantis Massif in the extreme northeastern corner of the Sargasso Sea.

Results of a more detailed, follow-up investigation of the massif are reported in a Science article (7/25/2003) by G. Früh-Green, and Others entitled, “30,000 Years of Hydrothermal Activity at the Lost City Vent Field.” These results suggest a different interpretation for the readings’ breakup and sinking of this part of the MAR (Atlantis of the readings). The eight investigators involved in the latest study report (p. 496) that,

…carbon-14 age dating indicates that normal faulting, breccia formation, sedimentation, veining, and venting [episodes at the massif] have been broadly contemporaneous and commenced at least 30,000 to 34,000 years ago…[and] …the carbon-14 dates of the veins are close to true ages.


An average of the carbon-14 ages for the two, calcium carbonate vein samples yields a date of 31,970 B.P. This is quite close to the date given in the Cayce reading below for the second period of disturbance (not destruction) of Atlantis. That date is “some 28,000 years B.C.,” or approximately 30,000 B.P. (We can substitute the word “approximately” for “some” in the reading below.)

One of the hypotheses for the formation of the Atlantis Massif
proposes that the Atlantis Massif is rising along faults, such as
 a detachment fault on the east side of the Massif.

If so, rock types found at depth should begin to be exposed
along the east flank of the Massif (also the footwall of the
proposed detachment fault).

Q) What was the date of the Peruvian incarnation as given in Life Reading, and what was the disturbance in the earth as mentioned? Give such details as will clear up this period.

A) As indicated from that just given, the entity was in Atlantis when there was the second period of disturbance -which would be some twenty-two thousand, five hundred (22,500) before the periods of the Egyptian activity covered by the Exodus; or it was some twenty-eight thousand (28,000) before Christ, see?
 

Then we had a period where the activities in the Atlantean land became more in provinces, or there were small channels through many of the lands.

By combining the findings of G. Früh-Green, and Others with the reading’s information, one might say that around 30,000 years ago a disturbance rocked Atlantis producing channels through many of the lands. This disturbance thrust up a dome-like feature of serpentinite on the northern margin of one of the channels now called the Atlantis fracture zone. (See Fig. 3). This upthrust block of ocean crust is known today as the site of the Lost City Hydrothermal Field. Such activity took place roughly 30,000 years ago. The first destruction of Atlantis occurred some 10,600 years later in 19,400 B.P. (See Table 1 for dates.)

Did the scientists investigating the Atlantis Massif just happen to do so because they had funding for an expedition? In part. Or were they drawn by karma to the Atlantis of the Cayce readings, where they had once lived? Indeed, is it not possible that their descent to the MAR represents a confirmation, however minimally, of reading 1602-3 below?

Q) Three hundred years ago Jacob Boehme decreed Atlantis would rise again at this crisis time when we cross from this Piscean Era into the Aquarian. Is Atlantis rising now? Will it cause a sudden convolution and about what Year?

A) In 1998 we may find a great deal of the activities as have been wrought by the gradual changes that are coming about. These are at the periods when the cycle of the solar activity, or the years as related to the sun's passage through the various spheres of activity become paramount or Catamount [?] [Tantamount?] to the change between the Piscean and the Aquarian age. This is a gradual, not a cataclysmic activity in the experience of the earth in this period.

The following description and the chart are from Jan Alvestad’s site, “Solar Terrestrial Activity Report“ for June 19, 2003.

“[The chart shows] a graphical comparison of solar cycles 2, 10, 13, 17, 20 and 23. Solar cycles 2, 10, 13, 17 and 20 are those that most easily compare to the development of cycle 23, particularly cycles 17 and 20 developed similarly to cycle 23. The chart below displays the development of all those cycles during their 6 first years.
“The X axis in the chart is the number of months from the start of a cycle, while the Y axis is the international monthly smoothed sunspot number.”




Alvestad’s chart shows clearly the double peaked nature of this latest solar cycle. It was “paramount” between roughly months 42 and 72 after it began.
Solar Cycle 23 began in about February 1996.

Yes, the years 2000-2002 did represent the peaking of solar cycle 23, and, presumably, the change between the Piscean and Aquarian ages. Well what about “Atlantis rising” during this period?

When scientists take samples of a mantle mountain (the Atlantis Massif) located in or near the Sargasso Sea and bring them to the surface, is that not a sort of rising of physical Atlantis? Too much of a stretch, I say. But then again, who knows what may follow? Are we not close to a paradigm shift in our understanding of Earth history?

                                                 More On Atlantis Rising



 


A key reading. Consider this fragment of reading 2012-1, given October 29, 1933:


"Before that we find the entity was in the Atlantean land, when there were the constructive forces as to the activities of the children of the Law of One, - in all of those influences during the periods when the land was being broken up.

We find the entity was as the leading influence for the considering of ways and means in which there would be the preserving of records, as well as ways, means and manners in which either the few or the numbers might be preserved from the destruction of the lands.

It would be well if this entity were to seek either of the three phases of the ways and means in which those records of the activities of individuals were preserved, - the one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising again [Hutton’s emphasis added]; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land; and another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there is overshadowing same."

Possible evidence. Is there any evidence that Atlantis was “rising again” in 1933? Was there any portion of the Atlantean continent (Fig.1) that could have been rising then? Perhaps. There is mention of the rising of the ocean floor some 450 miles north of the Azores on the website article, “Survey of Atlantis.” The relevant paragraphs are reproduced below:

Christian O'Brien in Chapter 18 of The Shining Ones features the basic historical and geological evidence which identifies the Azores as the site of the Island of Atlantis. In an outstanding career as exploration geologist he is no stranger to successfully challenging established perceptions and raises the key issue of the deep crustal rifting associated with such flood basalt constructions.

The technology needed to prove or disprove the Atlantis issue is now available. Science has reached the point of being able to understand both the creation of' such large structures and the subsequent catastrophic movements in the Earths crust, which have destroyed them. Finding and dating the remains of fresh water life at depths of up to 4000 meters, finding coral, sandy beaches and volcanic material below sea level and identifying former river valleys is within reach and we look forward to providing further news on this subject later in the year.

So far this century [last century actually, Hutton's correction] there has been a confirmed report of a one mile rise in the floor of the ocean 576 miles north of the Azores when a trans-Atlantic cable broke. [Emphasis added by Hutton]. Dr David F. Zhirov [Prof. N. Zhirov, Hutton's correction] in 1970 reported sand beaches and coral at depths of 2 miles south of the Azores. Confirmed evidence exists that sections of the Mid-Atlantic ridge have been above sea level in the past and [fresh-] water diatoms have been found 2 miles down in the Azores area dated 10,000 to 12,000 BC.

Try as I might, I have been unable to confirm this assertion of a one-mile rise in the floor of the ocean some 567 miles north of the Azores. Others may be able to determine the veracity of the statement.

Note also that Christian O'Brien produces an interesting map of his concept of the last big island of Atlantis to be submerged. This is called Poseidia in Cayce’s readings, and its final destruction was said (readings 364-1, 288-1, and 339-1) to taken place between 12,700 and 11,900 B.P. (years before the present), or approximately 10,700 to 9,900 B.C. Although I have not studied O’Brien’s data and assumptions behind his map, it brings an exploration geologist’s perspective to the same area that The Hutton Commentaries believes was the last part of Atlantis above the waves before the final destruction; i.e., Poseidia.

                                                        Seismic evidence




We searched the National Earthquake Information Center’s database for quakes within the area enclosed by the boundaries of Figure 3. This is the Poseidian-Atlantis “target area” that we believe is described in reading 2012-1 at the beginning of this section.

This search, from 01/01/1973 through 06/27/2003, turned up 724 earthquakes greater than M 3.0, with focal depths between 5 and 33 km (3.1-20.5 miles) out of a possible depth of 100 km. The three largest earthquakes had magnitudes of M 6.2, one of M 6.3, and one of M 6.6. Over the period, there were three clusters of 8 closely-spaced-in-time quakes, one cluster of 9 (in 2003), one cluster of 13 (in 1997), one cluster of 24 (in 1974), one cluster of 28 (in 2001), and one cluster of 35 (in 1996-1997). For further information on the earthquakes statistics is presented in Table 2.

The locations of the earthquake clusters are plotted on Figure 3. Also plotted is the epicenter of the single largest earthquake ever recorded in the Azores area (M 7.6). This earthquake occurred in February of 1968, reminding us of reading 958-3 which says
And Poseidia will be among the first portions of Atlantis to rise again. Expect it in sixty-eight and sixty-nine (’68 and ’69); not so far away!

Note well that the Poseidia that we believe could have existed is not in the vicinity of Bimini in the Bahamas. It is in the Azores region. Thus, it seems probable to us that the M 7.6 earthquake shown on Figure 3 could simply have been heralding the beginning of the first portions (here the Poseidian portion) of Atlantis’s slow rising.

What is striking to Hutton is the location of the 35-quake cluster of 12/21/1996 -03/04/1997. The two-month quaking of the crust, including seven quakes greater than M 5.0, occurred to the west of the median valley of the MAR, almost at the end of the 1958-1998 period mentioned in 3976-15 as being the period during which the Earth changes would be beginning.

The next largest cluster (28 quakes in 03/2001) occurred in the "Anomalous Area," again, west of the median valley of the MAR. If anyone is going to find evidence of the rising of this part of Atlantis (sunken Poseidia of the readings), he or she will probably find it most readily in one of these two places. The evidence would be obtained from analysis of old and new bathymetric surveys that traversed the areas. Bottom depths from surveys before 1960 should be deeper than those found in the years 2000-2003.

Then again, we must remember that aseismic slip might play a role in the gradual elevation of Atlantis. This is the process by which crustal blocks move along fault surfaces without producing easily detectable earthquakes.

Fig. 3. Physiographic reconstruction of Poseidia (called here Poseidonis), after N. Zhirov, as based on a diagram by B. Heezen and M. Tharp. Note the location of the major (M7.6) earthquake of 1968.

(Recall too this reading fragment,

"And Poseidia will be among the first portions of Atlantis to rise again. Expect it [to begin clearly to rise?] in sixty-eight and sixty-nine…."[958-3]). 

A repository for the records of the Atlantean civilization may be found in the area shown by blue shading. The Atlantean records repository will be found in a specific temple

"where a portion of the temples may yet be discovered." (See reading 440-5).

See text for an explanation of red dots A-C, sites of deep-water sampling of subaerial material representative of an emergent continent. (Subaerial refers to conditions and processes that exist or operate in the open air on and immediately adjacent to a land surface).
