 On the brink of Extinction - Earth before Impact

by Gary Schoenung

I first became curious about this whole thing because of the "Atlantis" story that was on the Drudge report. While taking a look at the underwater lines and looking around a little, I began to spot other features that did not look like they could be natural. 

If you look off the west coast of Mexico and California at 32 degrees 36' N and 121 degrees 40' W from 750 Km up you find another grid. It measures 257 miles from the top East/West line to the bottom one.

I'm very curious to see how Google explains that. Notice the lines and the angles. 
Measure the distance in between the lines.  As you move up the coast you find more lines off of Canada.

You can see where the glaciers bull-dozed the land flat and you can see where the water flowed as the glaciers melted. And you can see where the rivers once flowed. What could make people think that rivers could be there but not other people? Look at where the river beds join the grids. There are a number of grids and there is always evidence that they were irrigated. Now stop thinking cities and think crops, livestock, fish, and water. Those aren't from a city, they were used for agriculture. There are more lines at 12 degrees 17' N and 153 degrees E

If you look to the right of that at the bottom right corner of the triangle you can find a 10 mile wide strip running North and South in a perfectly straight line. 

You can measure that strip in the most visible locations at 10 miles wide in a perfectly straight line for 2,100 miles. It is so straight that when you measure it with Google's ruler tool you can't see the line. There is another 10 mile wide strip that appears to intersect it at 8 degrees 26' 33.29" N and 155 degrees 1' 30.42" E and runs in a straight line W/NW for 609 miles. 
Look at 27 degrees 35' 35" N and 158 degrees 49' 25" E from 800 Km up with Google Earth.

The strip on the left is the one that you can follow for 2,100 miles straight North and South. Notice that there are others that run straight North and South and straight East and West. Does what you see here remind you of anything? 

What you see at 74 degrees 15' 37" N and 37 degrees 03' 14" E from 1000 km is hard to believe, who could have done this underwater?

If you look further West at 77 degrees 52' 59" N and 6 degrees 24' 14" W 470 Km up you see that it appears to be part of a large area with unusual formations.

On top of what appear to be enormous agricultural complexes irrigated by rivers and areas that have an eerie resemblance to a road map on a ridiculously large scale, in order to accept the "fact" that the Pacific ocean was always there we have to explain the existence of hundreds (maybe thousands, it's a big world) of what are usually referred to as underwater volcanoes. The majority of these are 20 miles wide, some are up to 30 miles wide and have some very interesting features (see 1 degree 21' S and 174 degrees 41 W from 350 Km up).

Once you notice them they can be found all over the world in groups (38 degrees 3' N and 58 degrees 20' W from 400 Km), or in rows and clusters (53 degrees 59' N and 145 degrees 15' E).

It is not unusual to see them in multiple rows or even patterns (77 degrees 53' N and 6 degrees 24' W from 500 Km).

Google Earth allows you to use some of the same measuring functions as a computerized measuring device such as a validator machine. For instance, pick one of the well defined half spheres that you see in the pacific, it doesn't matter which one. Zoom in close and find the center, then use it for the first point with the distance measuring tool. You can't just look for the highest point on the top because for some reason that is always a little to one side. You will find that once you find the correct anchor point you can pick a distance, move that far in any direction and you will be at the same depth. Nature doesn't work that way. So why don't we see them sticking out of the water anyplace? 9000 years of erosion from wave action took its toll.

Take a good close look at the ring shaped islands in the south Pacific. Look at them from different heights. All of them have very obvious similarities. Zoom in on one that has an irregular shape; again take your pick it doesn't matter which one. Look at how it is shaped and visualize where the circle would have to be to surround it. Now move the mouse over the water in that area and you can still detect the circle just below the water where the waves could not erode it. There are a few that have a slight slope in some places and all you have to do is look a little lower to find the full circle. Choosing the right center point will work the same on these as it does on the ones that are not eroded. There are a surprising number of formations on land that appear to be very similar to the eroded tops in the water with blue centers and a white border. Look for white patches on land. You can tell where time and the slope of the land spread the material down hill. So now I find myself searching for the eroded remains of domes on land. I found some areas where you can see a white material scattered inside a circular area where the vegetation grows differently from the surrounding area. Once you start to notice these sites it quickly becomes apparent that it would be a nearly impossible task just to document and photograph all of them. There seem to be large areas around the world that have these formations along with very unusual looking rivers. The way the white deposits are spread along the banks of these rivers I can't help wondering not only if these rivers formed naturally, but also if the deposits were from those same types of structures breaking down over time. There are often different colors at different locations in round or oval patches. There appears to be a logical distribution of material flowing in down hill directions. Look at 58 degrees 26' N and 136 degrees 12' E from 12 Km and check the elevations in different places to see what I mean. Notice what appears to be part of a circle towards the top right.

Now move to 57 degrees 36' N and 134 degrees 40' E from 30 Km and follow the trail downhill.

At some point during the process of eroding it is likely that many of them would have held water. Depending on the topography some of them ruptured and the flow of water created low points where the eroded material flowed down hill and some of them still hold water to this day as lakes. I began looking for mound formations on land and I read about Glastonbury Tor and Silbury Hill. We may even have an idea of how the interior was structured, look at the Poverty Point earthworks in Louisiana. Now think about how hallways would be structured in a round apartment complex. The following will really surprise you! Compare the Poverty Point site to Stonehenge. This can't possibly be a coincidence. When looking at the formations in the ocean I noticed that in some areas the dome shaped structures appeared to have collapsed. If they can collapse or hold water then they have an interior. 
That raises the very intriguing possibility that we may not have to continue to just wonder what all of this means. Here is one more thing to think about. You can tell where there was always ocean because there is nothing unusual there. No grids, no lines, no perfectly symmetrical domes, nothing.

Try this for an explanation of what you see in the above locations. Take the fault line/stress fracture that circles Africa and center it from the edges with Google earth (4 25' N, 12 24' E).

 Now look at the exact opposite side of the globe (impact side). The ring of fire frames it very nicely and the crust is pushed inward. What I have come to suspect is that 9000 years ago an impact that there is still evidence of occurred on what was dry land at about 25 degrees 36' N and 166 degrees 13' E (impact site).

That ocean wasn't there. It fractured the Earths crust and pushed it down into the molten core creating a number of stress fractures from shock and internal pressure, as well as an irregularity on the other side where the shock waves came together. The shock wave forced the material above the bedrock on the adjoining areas that were not pushed in away from the impact site, the impact being so intense that it tilted the planets orbit. Three of the four largest mountain ranges in the world frame that site; all of them run perpendicular to the location of the impact. Molten rock oozed up out of the crack surrounding the area that was pushed down into the core. Now what was dry land is 5-6 thousand meters below sea level. Water rushes in and fills it, steam rises for a month. And it rains and rains and rains.

I've been a quality assurance inspector for a large corporation for the last 12 years and I do sample preparation for micro-structural analysis. I tested three phase electric reclosers for 8 years working with voltages up to 38 kv and around 9,300 amps. Sometimes production testing of that nature fails. I am very well acquainted with the appearance of different types of stress fractures and material failures. If not for that I don't think I would have become suspicious of the fracture pattern of the Earths crust.

Tidal wave... earthquake... extended period of rain... stars moving in the heavens... days or nights too long or too short... and 35 different stories that describe the same thing at the same time around the world. I also suspect that this planet was packed with people at the time of the impact.

At first I wasn't sure either as I tend to be a bit skeptical about this type of thing (believe it of not) but I simply can't dismiss this because of the amount of evidence. There is so much of it that I don't think I could ever have time to find it all. I'll be honest with you, the main reason I want feedback from other people is that this stuff is really freaking me out. I do have a reputation for putting 2 and 2 together and finding things that no one else noticed as an inspector but this a bit much to accept. Everything I've seen so far seems perfectly logical for the scenario that I've grudgingly come to suspect and the only explanations that anyone can offer are all based on theories that can't actually be proved with any hard evidence.

I'm beginning to understand how Columbus must have felt when he told people that the world wasn't flat. Education shouldn't train people to ignore evidence that conflicts with theories that have become accepted as fact. One of the first things I did was run a search on "plate tectonics problem". I had no idea that theory was full of holes that were plugged with other theories.
