The Grand canyon is an abandoned uranium pit?

in theory •  3 years ago 

On the Internet walks the career theory of the origin of ALL the canyons and gorges.

What is the essence.

The authors of the hypothesis, our planet pitted with all sorts of careers, which we believe canyons and gorges. Any idea who did the production differ. Whether the giants of previous civilizations, or aliens.

For example, consider the Grand Canyon in the USA.

What Wikipedia says:

Длина каньона — 446 км. Ширина (на уровне плато) колеблется от 6 до 29 км, на уровне дна — менее километра. Глубина — до 1800 м.

Here is how it appeared:

Initially, the Colorado river flowed across the plain, but the movement of the earth's crust about 65 million years ago, the Colorado plateau rose. In the result of uplift of the plateau have changed the angle of the flow of the Colorado river, resulting in increased speed and ability to destroy the rock, lying on her way. First of all, the river has eroded the upper limestone, and then began a deeper and more ancient sandstones and shales. And formed the Grand canyon. It occurred about 5-6 million years ago. The canyon is still deepening due to the ongoing erosion.

Super.

Only a few, "but":

Width (at the plateau) ranges from 6 to 29 km

So the width of the Colorado river reached 30 km?!!! Otherwise, how could she wash almost VERTICAL walls. And by the way the color of the rocks as it is not very similar to limestone.

All wordly explanation. Vspuchilis whether that plateau? To a height of several kilometers?

Realizing that this is something far-fetched decided lupanut a period of 5 to 6 million years.

Well.

Then where is this rock which the river has washed and continues to wash?
There are millions tone should be. Bay, which flows into Colorado, had to sleep in hell.
But there is another point. As the flushing flow rate should fall.
And the sand from the rocks not wood. It is on the water not swim.
So he just settles to the bottom.
The Colorado river needs to flow a long time at SANDY valley, the depth of the sand which reaches several tens of meters.

And where is it?

Moreover, even though the flow rate is clearly low erosion allegedly continues.
Then why was it necessary to distend plateau if still the river washes away all and

Then why was it necessary to distend plateau if still the river to wash away in this quiet position.?
I personally think that the creators of this version of themselves lack confidence in her.

And now look at photos of the quarries.

I suggest to admire the rotary excavator

You can admire it on the wall what he dug up.

Here bucket wheel excavator at work.

And then of course the question arises. If the Grand Canyon is a quarry that it could produce?

The answer is very simple.

Here is a link to an article in English about the career of uranium near the Grand Canyon.

Here are photos of the quarry taken from the article.

What miserable looks like a modern quarry near the "wall" of the canyon.

As I understand the article expressed concern that these developments will spoil the water.

And by the way across the canyon and placed signs warning of high radiation.

Now look at the map deposits of uranium ore.

And it turns out that the largest uranium Deposit located on the site of the Grand Canyon.

I do not claim that the version of the career origin of the Grand Canyon proper.

Perhaps it really long and hard washed river. And then the wind continued.

Maybe it's all the fantasies of a sick imagination.

Though.......
