The church that thrives in a ghost town

For many years, there has been a fire slowly consuming this town in the woods of Penn's forest. Forget vampires, this is worse! You could be walking along your way, in this town, and suddenly your leg plunges down into the soft ground, eaten up by the burning hot coals below. In other places, there is smoke everywhere. There has been a war between once-loving residents, as to whether to stay or to go...

This is a real interesting human, um, interest story, and I suggestibly encourage you to surf for more, if you dare!

When I first saw or heard a long programme about Centralia, PA, I thought they were talking about Centralia, IL, I think. (Or, maybe there is another town in Illinois being eaten away by the fire down below. I now that that one city next to the Indiana border is unlivable, but maybe because of pollution, or something else). I wondered if I should move there because of them, um, collapsing housing prices - only to soon be swallowed away into the ashley earth - or if I should resolve never ever to go near there. It was a dichotoholdame.

There is another place where this is happening. It is a south-western suburb of Saint Louis, MO, (possibly beginning w/ the letter, "T"). A covered garbage dump has been burning - closer and closer to old dumped RADIOACTIVE NUCLEAR WASTE! Things seemed very close to mass disaster a few years ago, as reported by Joyce Riley - but then she died, and I don't know the rest of the story. Do you? I mean REALLY?...

Maybe there some kind of, um, cover up...

Also, some little mountains in Afghanistan are naturally on fire, since forever. Underground methane, (natural gas), is so intense there, and it is on fire! - so the mountains are smokin'! (Kinda like at Yellowstone). Maybe that's where the whole 'walking-on-coals' practice first began.

Of course, methane is blasting massive holes out of Siberia and Canada, as the planet warms. While methane rises from the Arctic permafrost, it also rises in rivers of bubbles from the ocean floors. This intense greenhouse gas will soon tip the scales vastly in favour of hell on earth, and we shall all be lost souls indeed.

I never knew, but there's a natural one in Australia too that's apparently been burning for around 6000 years. Burning Mountain, underground coal seam fire. I think it's too deep to be dangerous though. But then the whole place is a nature reserve.

Hell is really not that far below us.

Hey, thanks for that. The page has links I'll edit in here.

I don't know where these fires get their oxygen.

Also - we may not be so dif after all. https://ancient-code.com/lost-continent-scientists-find-parts-north-america-australia/

I'm glad you are feeling better after a few days ago. I still want to comment on that post tho - I have just been so massively ill.

Amazing all that can happen on just one planet over billions of years hey, and most of it we'll never know. I never stop being astounded by the stuff we find out though.

It comes and goes in waves, but thanks :) I hope you can feel some respite from your ills soon too.

Really.

Our lives are full of such amazing, important stuff, and yet we are nothing compared to the span of time.

If we can have such magic in our own experiences, then just think of how magical everything else beyond us can be. I think we would do well to take this into account in everything we do. Yes?

Thanks.
