    The Charcoal-Black Fossil Planet!


    [​IMG]


    I thought this was amazing--Sort of reminds me of the original word for the land of Egypt in Africa and the original people of the land in Egypt, the land of Cham; ‘Kemet’ or ‘Black Lands’. It also reminds me that it is written that we are made from the dust of the earth. I thought this was an interesting piece of history and correlation. I wonder why I was never taught about this in school or on school field trips. I just recently watched a documentary and one astronaut looked at another after he had fallen and said that he was black all the way down from his knees. Imagine that--A huge planet, a large moving star-- that is totally black and moving in our atmosphere! Thank goodness it can be illuminated with glass-like crystals.

    Here are some quotes:

    Due to its size and composition, the Moon is sometimes classified as a terrestrial "planet" along with Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
    http://nineplanets.org/luna.html

    The Moon … it is a fossil planet on which the earliest stages of geologic evolution are preserved.
    http://www.sciencemaster.com/jump/space/moon.php

    Ask someone to name the color of the moon, and the answer will usually
    be "white." But the Moon is actually closer to black than to white. The Moon
    reflects only seven percent of the light that hits it. This is comparable to the
    albedo of asphalt.

    That the moon was a dark body was known before any
    missions went there
    . Nevertheless, the astronauts were surprised
    that lunar soil and rocks were charcoal-colored.

    …Technicians on Earth who later examined the rocks were astonished by
    their dark color, and after uttering a profanity to emphasize their surprise,
    described the rocks as looking like "burnt potatoes."
    If you go to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, you can touch a lunar
    rock
    . Yes, it is quite black.

    The Moon is covered with rocks, boulders, craters, and a
    layer of charcoal-colored soil from 5 to 20 feet (1.5 to 6 meters) deep.

    The soil consists of rock fragments, pulverized rock, and tiny pieces of glass.
    Two types of rock are found on the Moon: basalt,
    which is hardened lava; and breccia, which is soil and rock fragments that
    have melted together.

    Basalt: a fine-grained igneous rock that is usually black in
    color
    . The specimen shown is about two inches (five centimeters)
    across.

    Basalt is also an abundant rock on the Moon. Much of
    the Moon's surface is underlain by basaltic lava flows and flood basalts
    .

    I've read somewhere that the lunar soil is "charcoal black", yet in the
    photographs of the Apollo missions on the lunar suface, the soil looks about
    medium/light grey. Is it lighter simply due to the harsh sunlight, in the way
    that hair looks lighter in sunlight, or was it due to the way the film was
    eveloped afterwards?

    Now phrases like ‘Black as sackcloth of hair’ and ‘Black Moon’ [New moon] takes on a whole new meaning for me!

    News Conference Today with NASA about findings

    Just saw this on yahoo and since it's about NASA findings, I thought it fitting to post it here. Over the course of years since space explorations took place, there are so many reports about 'secret findings' on places like the moon and etc. and so, this press conference will do doubt hold the interest of many people. I hope to hear about later after I sleep though!

    NASA creates buzz with 'ET' announcement

    The US space agency has created a buzz with its announcement of a press conference to discuss a scientific finding that relates to the hunt for life beyond the planet Earth.

    "NASA will hold a news conference at 2pm EST on Thursday, December 2 (0600 AEDT Friday), to discuss an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life," it said on its website…

    Those scheduled to speak included Mary Voytek, who heads NASA's astrobiology program; Felisa Wolfe-Simon, a NASA astrobiology research fellow from the US Geological Survey; and Pamela Conrad, an astrobiologistat NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

    The Charcoal-Black Fossil Planet!...makes sense to me



    Well...The Bible does say in the beginning, in Genesis, "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.":)

    Good post Chevron Dove!

    Yes! Thank you!

    You know that very reference came to my mind too! And also [paraphrasing] and light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. The science that matches this reference is amazing to me.

    Just recently I was reading over some history concerning the american west and was surprised to run into some interesting statements about the earth here on this same wise! I am beginning to realize how education can be taught in such a way that we at times are not even aware of reality. I lived out west and also have seen pictures but never really realized what I was looking at until i begin to read written works.

    I have been so conditioned to at least receive that there is apart of this planet earth that does have 'black lands' [Kemet] in Egypt but then, this is only because I chose to read outside of school systems for my self. Now though, my mind is stretching beyond this and i have stumbled across even more information! Because I'm not sure if some of these statements are in reference to land [soil] or people or probably BOTH, I'm not sure where I want to list them. But because of other quotes about american soil I will post some information right here!

    I was so surprised to find some quotes coming from the time in history when the europeans came swarming into the american west and left behind statments that not only supports science but also another recent research i posted about ancient Black natives in the west! This is what Coronado wrote:


    Coronado found Quivira “well settled...The land itself being very fat and blackand being very well watered by the rivulets and springs and rivers…
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quivira_and_Cíbola


    So Coronado… 1541, the land of Quivira, with its fat, black soil, its beautifulrivulets and springs and rivers, …its queer cows with humped backs and its
    Indians living in grass huts and eating raw buffalo meat. …

    I like this Chevron: Because I'm not sure if some of these statements are in reference to land [soil] or people or probably BOTH, I'm not sure where I want to list them. ...Suggestion, why not produce both sides allowing the reader(s) to decide, see my point?
