Situated about 100 kilometers west of Sydney in an area called the Wollangambie Wilderness, is what looks like a regular meteor impact crater. Cone shaped, it is roughly 2 kilometers across with a crater in the centre. The walls are around 80 meters high. It is on the local survey maps. Many people hike into the area to see it.
But assumptions can be misleading.
An assumption is basically a best guess in relation to the facts that are available at the time.
Let’s have a look at the facts. For one it is a crater but with a channel cut thru the rampart. It is not volcanic as the cone material is only sandstone with no signs of the basalt, etc. normally associated with magma. While the cone is overgrown you can still see large and small sandstone blocks scattered everywhere.
Now it starts to get interesting.
When Google Earth updated the area, you can plainly see a second crater encompassing the cone. We now have a larger crater with a cone exactly in the centre with a crater in the center of that.
The outer crater has smoother internal sloping sides with the bottom 15 meters or so being vertical. On a lot of these sections there are striations that are at an angle of about 30-40 degrees. On the outside of this crater can be found unusual ironstone layers sometimes forming tubular structures that look like fulgurites.
Though eucalyptus trees cover the area, on the inner cone the majority of trees have a different color bark.
These are the facts. A circular crater “cut” into the plateau with relatively smooth inner walls. Fulgurites on the outer walls. A cone exactly in the center with a crater in the center of that with jumbled walls.
Whoever has heard of one impact crater landing exactly in the center of another? With both craters having different characteristics?
There are no known geological theories to fit the formation of the observed facts. But there is a theory that does.
In the electric universe it is electricity, not gravity that drives everything. What we see with this crater is an electrical discharge on a larger scale than we have ever seen. Twisting plasma currents cut the outer crater and a plasma discharge forms the central cone. This Birkeland current geological machining may of come from the electrical discharge of a comet well above the earth, a mass coronal ejection on a huge scale or some other planetary dynamic not seen in our times. Discharge effects on a smaller scale but similar to Woolangabbie crater have been reproduced in the laboratory. These phenomena cannot be replicated by the physical impacts of say a meteor.
In the local Aboriginal myths their Sky God Baiame, carved the whole area and stepped back into the Spirit World from Mt Yengo nearby. Does the Aboriginal mythology hold the key to what happened at Wollangambie not so long ago?
Look for yourself. When assumptions become truth we close our minds to other possibilities.
