I see my previous earth science topic disappeared. Anyone see anything in that topic on Friday that could have led to that happening?  I did not log into that topic Friday so I don't know what happened.

2 views of Pilot Mountain (also called Pilot Knob), near Winston-Salem, N.C.

 

I wonder how & when this one was formed.

Looks like the lava tube/vent that formed the core of a volcano. The material is harder than the surrounding material and thus weathered at a different rate.

 

Just a guess based on appearance though. I could be wrong.

Nah, those rocks are not volcanic. Probably a metamorphic sedimentary of some sort. Sandstone/quartzite like.

Interesting. Like I said I could be wrong. I was just looking at the appearance of the weathering.

Certainly hope they're not giving you the "Joe Rogan" treatment. Preventing a free debate on the topic of earth science would be most unfortunate. I wonder if the mods responsible are now willing to enter into this thread and explain their actions.

Odd why the mods lock some topics and make others disappear. I'm wondering if the bad cat person struck again? 

 

These are the last two videos I posted in the canceled topic.

Oops! I did not post the Mt. Olympus video yesterday. It was this video.

Block Quote

 Pilot Mountain, a metamorphic quartzite monadnock rising to a peak 2,421 feet (738 m) above sea level, is one of the most distinctive natural features in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It is a remnant of the ancient chain of Sauratown Mountains. The Saura Native Americans, the region's earliest known inhabitants, called the mountain "Jomeokee", meaning "great guide"

Far too many people have been "conditioned" to react to bad weather by thinking "climate change." Just as Pavlov's dogs learned to salivate at the sound of a metronome (no, not a bell) even though there was no inherent connection between that device and the appearance of food, people have come to associate storms, droughts, wildfires and so on with global warming, CO2 and higher taxes even though there's no inherent connection, in the view of most scientists.

Scientists uncover the largest crater on Earth under 100,000 years old

The Yilan crater measures about 1.15 miles (1.85 kilometers) across and likely formed about 46,000 to 53,000 years ago, based on radiocarbon dating of charcoal and organic lake sediments from the site, the NASA statement says. The so-called Meteor Crater in Arizona previously held the record for largest impact crater less than 100,000 years old; it's about 49,000 to 50,000 years old and measures 0.75 miles (1.2 km) in diameter.

I think you need to ask George why your old thread no longer exists.

It might have something to do with various admissions and posted images.

And 30 odd reports.....

Stock up on food and other items while they are still affordable and available.
