Geologists working in the remote Afar region of Ethiopia say the ocean will eventually split the African continent in two, though it will take about 10 million years seems it is that end of time now we are in. As Many researchers are described the events as “truly incredible”. Used to understanding changes in the planet on timescales of millions of years have seen amazing changes in Afar in the past five years, where the continent is cracking open, quite literally underneath our feet. In 2005, a 60km long stretch of the earth opened up to a width of eight metres over a period of just ten days. Hot, molten rock from deep within the Earth is trickling to the surface and creating the split. Underground and eruptions are still continuing and, ultimately, the horn of Africa will fall away and a new ocean will form. Thus producing risk in the dams being constructed in the Ethiopian side of the valley

“The East African Rift System (EARS) is one the geologic wonders of the world, a place where the earth’s tectonic forces are presently trying to create new plates by splitting apart old ones. In simple terms, a rift can be thought of as a fracture in the earth’s surface that widens over time, or more technically, as an elongate basin bounded by opposed steeply dipping normal faults. Geologists are still debating exactly how rifting comes about, but the process is so well displayed in East Africa (Ethiopia-Kenya-Uganda-Tanzania) that geologists have attached a name to the new plate-to-be; the Nubian Plate makes up most of Africa, while the smaller plate that is pulling away has been named the Somalian Plate (Figure 1). These two plates are moving away form each other and also away from the Arabian plate to the north. The point where these three plates meet in the Afar region of Ethiopia forms what is called a triple-junction. However, all the rifting in East Africa is not confined to the Horn of Africa; there is a lot of rifting activity further south as well, extending into Kenya and Tanzania and Great Lakes region of Africa. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the general geology of these rifts are and highlight the geologic processes involved in their formation.” www.geology.com

Scores of earthquakes have struck the Horn of Africa in the region known as the Afar triangle in this month of June cumulating in a volcanic eruption. May sky gazers claim as the approach of the most expected planet x or nibirue while the other attribute the movement of the comet Elenin which is approaching the earth with a rendez-vous on the 1st of September 2011, the new year of Ethiopia.. Geologically the horn of Africa is in movement since millions of years for the opening of the new ocean by splitting the region for creating a new ocean. The government of the dictatorial regimes of Ethiopia continues his project of mega dams on these dynamic fault lines even seen the volcanoes and the continues earthquakes . this will menace not only the local inhabitants by immediate danger but will have a direct consequences on Sudan and Egyptian populations.
Is your family prepared for an M 5.5, Eritrea – Ethiopia region earthquake? Preparedness experts recommend that area families be equipped to survive up to 72-hours without public services in case of emergency. The simplest way to meet this minimum requirement is with a 72-Hour Survival Kit which will meet your family’s food, water, shelter, first-aid, light, heat, sanitation and communication needs.

A moderate earthquake struck near the Nabro volcano in Eritrea Friday, five days after the stratovolcano first sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air.
Volcanic activity decreased overnight but a 5.5 magnitude earthquake on Friday morning could lead to a further increase in volcanic activity. Images from sat24 , however, show what appears to be a much smaller plume being omitted from the volcano.
Volcanic activity has increased at the Nabro volcano in Eritrea, just four days after the stratovolcano sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air.
The ash drifted westnorthwest over Sudan Thursday evening threatening to bring further disruption to air traffic in the east Africa region.
Sunday night’s eruption led to some flight cancellations in neighbouring Sudan, Djibouti and Ethiopia, and saw a massive ash plume being carried as far away as Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkmenistan, the Central African Republic and Egypt.
The below MODIS Terra 1km True Colour satellite image, captured Thursday afternoon, shows the ash plume drifting hundreds of kilometres west of Nabro.
Today an earth quake of 4.5 – GULF OF ADEN – 2011-05-31 00:36 UTC hit the gulf of Eden streaching to Afar triangle.
This seismicity on the the fault line of the tree tactonic plates is working to open the coming new ocean dividing the Horn of Africa. The last three month has been actively moving. This is not a good news for the Omo river dams in preparation by the Ethiopian regime since they are located on the fault line of this active plate movements.

Today’s earth quake of magnitude 4.4 moved the Red Sea which is a prelude for the making of Eastern African ocean. It has a direct impact on the different dams which are in construction in the Horn of Africa, especially that of the Millennium “Death Dam” in the the Nile region of Ethiopia. This the second earth quake in the region since the start of the Death Dam. On March 31 st Magnitude 4.6 – hit Eritrea, Ethiopia and Djibouti border on Afar depression. This is the region where the new ocean is in formation. It is high risk for the population in the area to peruse damming by the dictatorial regime of Ethiopia especially the Omotic population in the rift Vally. The Afar region of Ethiopia is plate form of a living volcano preparing the breaking of the continent for the creation of this new ocean of Ethiopia. It takes only a dictator to try to build dams on the splitting plates of Eastern Africa trying to connect two separating plates with with a cement. Last year a 26 km tunnel collapsed on the Omo Dam known as Gibe due to the earth’s movement on its diverging eastern African plates .
Magnitude 4.4 NEAR THE East COAST OF Eritrea Tuesday, May 03, 2011 at 18:50:32 UTC
In the Ancient Geez ( Ethiopic) the language of the ancient Abyssinian astrological Codex, known as Awede Negest, Kokeb is a star body rather than Moon or Sun or a planet or comet. This is one of the kokeb that is waited to arrive to words our earth on September 11, 2011 on the Ethiopian Enoch’s ( )* calendar New Year. The Ethiopian calendar is predates that of the ancient Egyptian with certain similarities to the Copts by error it is called Julian calendar too. That day it will be September 1, 2004 seven year and eight months behind the Gregorian calendar, when our planet will be close to the Star. It is a calendar made by the ancient Abyssinian star gazers. Ethiopia is located inside the tropics and is the closest place to the sun than any where on earth for observing the sky in the naked eye. Ethiopians of old times were raised up studying heavens from plate of water or hole filled with water on the ground than looking up though a telescope.
The 2and important date 11/11/2011 of Elenin falls significantly on the 1st date of the Ethiopian 3rd month Hedar 1, 2004 having a great sign in the Abyssinian astrological book Awede Negest. In Ethiopia is counted the 8th millennium though the dictatorial regime try to reduce it to two millennium thus confusing the population not to follow the stars.
On that day the “Comet” known to the ancient will cross the ecliptic on line up with Mercury, the Sun, and the Earth. It will be getting close to Earth’s proximity that its orbit will reach during its turn around the sun. The Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin in December 10, 2010 observed the “Comet” which he gave his name. Many claimed NASA knew it earlier and kept in silence to keep the excitement down.

9/11/11 is the date of the arrival “Comet/ planet /star/” of Doom or Gloom is not Hoax but rather a scientific fact recognized by many astrophysicists and NAZA.
When the Kokeb was first discovered in December 20 last year, there was no concern of it coming close enough to the Earth the path seems to be getting closer to Earth than they originally projected, could there be a Comet Elenin Collision Course with Earth?

Most of the astrophysicists and NAZA have identified the current path of Elenin with some degree of accuracy. Though the length of time to complete its ellipse is not so well defined but based upon one set of data, Elenin s period could be 11,000 years.
Solar and Heliospheric Observatory SOHO – is a specific spacecraft that was created to observe the Sun, a cooperative between ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA. SOHO has been observing Comet Elenin for a while.

The Hopi’s Kachina**
. According to Hopi’s prophecy, the Blue Star Kachina acts as a warning, an alarm bell that announces the imminent arrival of the Red Star Kachina. The story is about the cyclical nature of life; it is a story about humanity forgetting to remember its purpose; it is a story of destruction and purification; it is a story repeated a thousand times throughout history; and as always, it is ultimately a story of renewal.
The Sumerian Nibiru ***
The Sumerians 6000 years ago referred to an ancient planet called Nibiru, the 12th planet of our solar system. It was a rogue planet, causing havoc in our solar system as it passed through because its orbit was in the opposite direction of the planets. When it appeared, it did so in the shape of a red cross in the night sky before flipping the Earth’s poles.
Nemesis of the Greeks ?
The theory of a companion sun is not new. It has often been described as Nemesis, after the Greek figure in mythology.
The mythological Nemesis was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris, vengeful fate personified as a remorseless goddess. The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word meaning “to give what is due”.
Nemesis is now often used as a term to describe one’s worst enemy, normally someone or something that is the exact opposite of oneself but is also somehow similar. For example, Professor Moriarty is frequently described as the nemesis of Sherlock Holmes.
“Opposite yet similar” is the perfect description for a companion to our Sun. But the name Nemesis also implies a sinister nature. Will this new Nemesis be beneficial or harmful to our lives?
Planet X of the Spanish ****
“Scientists at places like NASA and famous observatories have deflected inquiries about the discovery for a few years now, mainly because they feared being associated with these “fringe” theories. But like it or not — it has happened. Well… according to a team of Spanish artronomers who call themselves the StarViewer Team.
The group made the rounds of all the news web sites in the past two weeks, claiming they discovered something very significant. It’s almost twice the size of Jupiter and just beyond our furthest planetoid, Pluto. Although it’s not a planet, it appears to have planets or large satellites encircling it. It’s what astronomers call a “brown dwarf star” and its official name is “G1.9″.”
Concerning Elenin little is known about this comet because of its relatively recent-discovery status, therefore, information regarding its size, mass, and orbit still vary widely or are missing altogether due to a lack of observational data. Still, astrophysicists have been plugging away at Elenin ever since it was discovered last year.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has an interactive diagram of Elenin’s orbit with the known information about the object plugged into variable positions. What is known is that Elenin is scheduled to make its perihelion turn around the sun in August of this year . Shortly after making its u-turn, Elenin will perform a fly-by of Earth, coming within 21,000,000 miles of Earth. As a point of reference, the moon is roughly 240,000 miles from Earth.
Space distance is measured in astronomical units [a.u.], with 1 a.u. being the distance from the Earth to the sun. Elenin is currently estimated to pass within 0.24 a.u. of Earth after it makes its turn around the sun it suppose to begin heading back out into space.
The ecliptic is a horizontal field created by the planets and sun orbiting on a relatively flat plane. Many of these long-period objects do not travel along the ecliptic plane. They either come up from below the ecliptic, cross the ecliptic, or travel out above the ecliptic plane, or they do the opposite. As many astrologist though about planet X making havoc to the earth

From October 10-24, 2011 comet Elenin is forecast to be within 0.25 a.u. of Earth, according to NASA JPL diagram.
*An Enochian year is completed in 364 days, Enoch 82:4-7 and Jubilees 6:23-28. More precisely, a 365-day-solar-year and the 365-year-solar-cycle appear as a 365-days-and-years single term. From the three books of , a curious 364-day length of calendar year lends new insight by reserving the last day of the solar year. *65 is the year Enoch lived on earth before transfiguration according to the Bible.

The New Earthquake and Tsunami that followed March 12, 2011 devastation will join our past and the coming history of two remote times in Japanese and world civilization. In the Antediluvian time of pre 12000BCE, the region of Yonaguni not far from the joining point of the three tectonic plates Eurasian, Pacific and Pilipino, once existed the Japanese Atlantis. It was constructed with great curved rock hewn city similar to the Ethiopian highland Lalibela churches. Today under water vanished from our memories swept away by the moving plates of the earth. One thing sue the Japanese civilizing had had build cities hewn from rocks predicting the coming danger. We hope the nuclear stations and the coming cities are built out of such stones by dispersing the population in larger areas…
Our planet is passing to the approaching galactic alignment. This new era of cleansing our continents is working through Icy temperatures, Volcanic irreptions , Tectonic shift movements, Earth quakes and Catastrophic hurricanes. Australia is going through, like the rest the continents, receiving her share of the dynamical changes. The earth seems will never be the same again at the end of these events.
In the island Continent Fitzroy River passed 9.2 meters Wednesday morning and was expected to peak at around 9.4 meters later in the same day. The coming rain is expected to raise the flood in the eastern state, Bureau of Meteorology, issued a severe weather warning Wednesday.
Heavy rainfall could lead to flooding and worsen the existing river-flood situation for Maranoa, Darling Downs and Granite Belt, Southeast Coast, Wide Bay and Burnett, and Capricornia.
Around 200,000 people in Queensland have been directly or indirectly affected by the flooding, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported, with 4.000 residents evacuated.
The populations on the other side of the continent life continue as usual. The world seems to get use to catastrophes and dramatic change. The old theses of worming planet are not holding any more.
We all must give our help and our mind to Australia like we did to Haiti and Chili, since every one of is involved in the coming days. Image what will happen if the under developed countries flooded as much as Australia. Imagine living in small hats in Africa… what will happen to you? Pakistan is not yet out of its flood disaster.
As expected and predicted in the recent past here in our site the Eastern African tectonic plates started moving faster menacing the megalomaniac dams constructed in the moving rift valley rivers ( GebeI, GebeII, GebeIII and that of the Nile, power Awash dams ) . These destructive dams have been constructed against the international criticism due to their disastrous effects on the inhabitants of the riparian countries around Ethiopia, since the Abyssinian highland plateau has being the main source of life giving water as far as Egypt. Shebelle River for Somalia, Omo for Kenya, the rest is watering for Sudan and Djibouti. These destructive dams are not supported by geological and scientifically based nature friendly studies. They are rather build for the water power to be used against the surrounding countries domination as recently manifested in the regime’s declaration of war against Egypt, a country only depending on the dammed water of the Nile for her survival.
A magnitude 5.1-5.3 earthquake hit Hosanna town in Southwestern Ethiopia on Sunday, December 19, 2010 at 12:14:24 UTC Local time at epicenter : Sunday, December 19, 2010 at 03:14:24 PM (at epicenter, Depth (Hypocenter) : 9.8 km
Send an “earthquake experience report” for this earthquake Geo-location(s) (horizontal uncertainty +/- 15.3 km) : Approx. 10 km from Hosanna, Fonka and Jajura 200 km (124 miles) SW (215°) from ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia 219 km (136 miles) N (9°) from Gidole, Ethiopia.
Last month, an earthquake swarm at Yemen caused alarm. The swarm was situated at the opening to the Red Sea at the Gulf of Aden, and seemed to be an unusual place for seismic activity.
“, at USGS, the Yemen-Gulf of Aden-Djibouti area IS seismic, but in a minor way. Between 1950 through Sunday in Hosanna this area had 56 earthquakes ranging between mag 4.0-5.9. There were no quakes greater than mag 5.9 during that date range. But in 2010 there have been 31 (as of 1:00pm), which is 2/3 as many as in the last sixty years. “
This famous volcanic landscape of the Afar Triangle region results from tectonic forces working deep below the surface as we have seen it above. The tectonically active nature of the Ethiopian Rift expresses itself in the many volcanic features in this area, including Erta Ale, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and numerous other volcanic cones and fissures.
“The highly active volcanic boundaries along the edges of tectonic ocean plates may suddenly break apart in large sections, instead of little by little as has been predominantly believed. In addition, such sudden large-scale events on land pose a much more serious hazard to populations living near the rift than would several smaller events”, Prof. Cindy Ebinger, professor of earth and environmental sciences at the University of Rochester .
Starting 2010 up unto the 2012 the earth is passing through an intensified magnetic filed in the galaxy centers increasing solar flares having a direct effect on seasons and climate change. This has been manifesting through extreme weathers and tectonic movements causing – freezing winters, hot summers, heat waves, foods , landslides, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tsunamis etc.. Over a quarter million people in 2010 perished – the deadliest year in more than a generation.
The earth has gone in its geological histories in the past the same destructive and cleansing acts. In its historical records such events has been recorded in past civilizations. Based on the past events the ancient not only recorded but predicted such coming events. Ancient Ethiopic apocariftic writing had predicted the coming events at the end of times as being the 8th millennium events. The Ethiopian prediction is based on books like the pre deluvian Book of Enoch, and other secretly kept books coming down from the past .
The German meteorologist Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) called such movement as Continental Drift. He believed that the continents had at one time been joined together in a supercontinent that he named Pangaea, meaning “all lands.” In the other words if we follow Wagner’s theory ,it seems the earth was smaller from what we know it today as it is constantly bulging like a balloon drifting the continent and land shift apart. But if we look at tectonic theory the earth is the same see the following videos and compare:-
This new tectonic activity on Sunday December 19, 2010 in Hosanna on in the East African Rift Valley has aggravated to widen the vast fissures where the African Plate is being split into two parts. Five years ago , there was a major tectonic event in the Afar region when a rift 60 km (35 miles) long and 8 meters (26 feet) wide was torn apart just in a few days. It was with a series of earthquakes, and a volcanic eruption.
The Nubian Plate or the main plate of the African continent and on the eastern coast the Somalian Plate, are in constant movement in opposite directions at a divergent plate boundary creating an ocean. The region which will soon be under water is known as the Afar Triangle. The meeting point of this tectonic movement which includes north-eastern Ethiopia, Djibouti and the southern Red Sea region of Eritrea. The news ocean is created by theses diverging three plates moving away from each other due to an upwelling of magma from the mantle, which melts the crust and causes it to thin and pull apart. Horn of Africa or the part known as the Somalian Peninsula will secede from the rest of the continent, creating an island. This phenomenon is similar to the mid-ocean ridges, where hot magma rises up and pushes the oceanic crust out to each side in the process of seafloor spreading.
