As the ancient site of Petra is on the list of places I'd like to visit, I was pleased to see this youtube vid by Brien Foerster. I, like Brien, did not realise the extent of the site, and now I'm even more keen to get there one day.
Ancient Machining at Petra This is What Mainstream Science Doesn't Want You To See
Brien feels that much of the erosion is by water and weathering over many thousands of years, but to my eye most of it is clearly the signs of plasma erosion and electrical fracturing, and likely other E/M effects. He does consider Schochs proposal, and my favourite, of a major proton storm at the time, while the TB team would seem to think a near approach of Mars, and then there is an interloper such as Nibiru though that would be at the 3000 or so y.a. period.
The stone is diorite, tough stuff, so he is convinced the rock cut structures must be way older than the Nabatean or Roman parts. Older, yes, not not as old as he proposes though if this was a plasma event which could have been relatively recent. I haven't read "Ages in Chaos"yet but it's on my reading list as it may shed a little light on the dating of these events.
What we see here does show great erosion in many places, yet other parts seem relatively sound. What if though, there were parts that have been completely eroded, whole buildings or suburbs may have completely disappeared, turned to sand?
Google Earth shows good resolution from the air, and there are lots of photos and 360 degree views. From the air though it is possible to see that much of that area shows what are clearly (to me anyway) great electrical effects, and from further out it would seem that the 'rift' valley that runs from the Gulf of Aqaba up to perhaps
Beirut is the track of a discharge. Perhaps the whole of the Mediterranean sea and its surrounds was affected at the same time, and in the proton storm model then the sea surface would have become highly charged, causing the extreme erosion apparent on the coasts.
The slot canyons at Petra must obviously have been there before the rock cut structures such as the Treasury were created, but the slot canyons too are electrically carved IMO, so maybe there are periodic cyclical events. We have many of them on Vancouver island, and of course they are cut by water according to geologists, but I'm sure that petrological studies would show that metamorphosis of the exposed surfaces has occurred, likely by ion implantation.
I also watched a recent NewEarth video "The Unearthly Rock-cut Ruins of Turkey"
The author similarly believes the erosion indicates great age, but in places the signs are such that it would have taken millions of years for weathering to do such work, the coast and islands of sections of the Black sea being an extreme example.
My belief is that many of the eroded structure may be less than 6000 years old, perhaps only 2000, in which case the events that did the work are quite recent and likely happen every few thousand years. Heads-up?
