New Madrid Earthquakes as Seen Through Dark Glasses

September 22, 2012

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
Carl Sagan

Below I have listed some “Strange” sightings from witnesses of the New Madrid Earthquakes.  I will attempt to explain these from the viewpoint of dark matter.  You believe the ones you want.  They are from the New Madrid Missouri City Website:

Sand blow (sand volcano) of craterlet type in area of disturbance, Caruthersville. New Madrid earthquake (Dark Matter Orbital Path?)

The New Madrid earthquakes were the biggest earthquakes in American history. They occurred in the central Mississippi Valley, but were felt as far away as New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Washington D. C. President James Madison and his wife Dolly felt them in the White House. Church bells rang in Boston. From December 16, 1811 through March of 1812 there were over 2,000 earthquakes in the central Midwest, and between 6,000-10,000 earthquakes in the Bootheel of Missouri where New Madrid is located near the junction of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.

A massive dark matter particle orbiting above and through the earth over a period of 3 months could easily trigger 10,000 events.  That would only require an orbit every 13 minutes.  No problem for a particle that can travel hundreds or thousands of miles per second.

In the known history of the world, no other earthquakes have lasted so long or produced so much evidence of damage as the New Madrid earthquakes. Three of the earthquakes are on the list of America’s top earthquakes: the first one on December 16, 1811, a magnitude of 8.1 on the Richter scale; the second on January 23, 1812, at 7.8; and the third on February 7, 1812, at as much as 8.8 magnitude.

The Mississippi Ran Backwards 
After the February 7th earthquake, boatmen reported that the Mississippi actually ran backwards for several hours. The force of the land upheaval 15 miles south of New Madrid created Reelfoot lake, drowned the inhabitants of an Indian village; turned the river against itself to flow backwards; devastated thousands of acres of virgin forest; and created two temporary waterfalls in the Mississippi. Boatmen on flatboats actually survived this experience and lived to tell the tale.

Depending upon the size of the massive particle and the fact that it carries the same effect of gravity as other matter, if it was orbiting in a south —> north direction that would explain this.

Getting Over Cracks 
As the general area experienced more than 2,000 earthquakes in five months, people discovered that most of crevices opening up during an earthquake ran from north to south, and when the earth began moving, they would chop down trees in an east- west direction and hold on using the tree as a bridge. There were “missing people” who were most likely swallowed up by the earth. Some earthquake fissures were as long as five miles.

A massive particle orbiting in a south-north direction through the earth could create these long fissures.

Sand Boils 

The world’s largest sand boil was created by the New Madrid earthquake. It is 1.4 miles long and 136 acres in extent, located in the Bootheel of Missouri, about 8 miles west of Hayti, Missouri. Locals call it “The Beach.” Other, much smaller, sand boils are found throughout the area.

It is expected that a massive particle might leave liquefied earth in its place after orbiting  thousands of times over the period of months, like the sinkhole seen in the South at Bayou Corne.

Seismic Tar Balls 
Small pellets up to golf ball sized tar balls are found in sand boils and fissures. They are petroleum that has been solidified, or “petroliferous nodules.”

Dark matter orbiting through the earth should create a path for tar balls to come up from deep below.

Earthquake Lights
Lights flashed from the ground, caused by quartz crystals being squeezed. The phenomenon is called “seismoluminescence.”

Dark matter can have the same properties as any atom – angular momentum, mass and charge.  If the dark matter carried a charge and ionized the air or earth around it that can trigger the earthquake lights seen.

Warm Water
Water thrown up by an earthquake was lukewarm. It is speculated that the shaking caused the water to heat up and/or quartz light heated the water.

Dark Matter gives off Hawking Black Body radiation.  A particle the size that went through New Madrid should be extremely hot.

Earthquake Smog
The skies turned dark during the earthquakes, so dark that lighted lamps didn’t help. The air smelled bad, and it was hard to breathe. It is speculated that it was smog containing dust particles caused by the eruption of warm water into cold air.

Can something underground really do that to the sky?  In my opinion only if it is orbiting through the sky as dark matter.

Loud Thunder
Sounds of distant thunder and loud explosions accompanied the earthquakes.

These were sonic booms, also known as “Seneca Booms” heard at many earthquake sites.  I do not believe any underground event can create those.

Animal Warnings
People reported strange behavior by animals before the earthquakes. They were nervous and excited. Domestic animals became wild, and wild animals became tame. Snakes came out of the ground from hibernation. Flocks of ducks and geese landed near people.

Why would ducks and geese land if something was going on in the ground?  Makes no sense.  They landed from the air because a massive dark matter particle was orbiting in their vicinity and upsetting the surroundings.  Animals also have a keen sense of hearing and could probably pick up the noise in the atmoshpere beforehand.
