O.K., Here goes.
Growing up in Memphis Tn. I have heard probably about every story concerning the earthquakes that had happened years ago. As Sir Winston Churchill had once stated "It is a riddle wrapped in mystery, inside an enigma". It is my belief, though, that there is much more to these events. In the years 1811-1812 there were many catastrophes happening all over our planet. Many believed that The Great Comet of 1811 was responsible. After studying the evidence, I am inclined to agree.
I would like to first ask you, when you may have a moment, to go to a satellite view. As unbelievable as this may sound, the topography of the entire Mississippi River Valley is actually the result of a meteor impact to Northern Mississippi coming from the dust tail of Comet C/1811 F1. This meteor consisted mainly of ice, sand, smaller rocks, and some boulder-sized, only about half melted coming in through the atmosphere from south-southeast at a low trajectory and impacted on a frozen lake with soil horizons being only of gravel, sand, dirt, and on top of The Artesian Wells [water], greatly influencing the outcome.
If you would, please go to the top-right of Marshall County [Concord Church is on the northwest rim]. Although the immediate crater is somewhat difficult to make out, due to tree growth, erosion, and development, once you begin to pan out, notice how all topography encircles the proposed crater site. All the rivers to the north encircle the area, the man-made lakes to the south run from east to west beneath the impact and is where the land was pulled and split apart by the blast. This is also the reason that The Tennessee River flows back northward. Follow the Tennessee River down through Alabama to where it turns upward and notice how you can still see the old river bed that ran south. Follow it around and notice all the lines that go around the impact coming from, what must have been, a massive shockwave immediately after impact.
At least this is what I have observed. It is also a fact that at the center of all these stratus lines, on the northwest rim of the stucture many rocks have been found that appear to be meteorites, impactites, and other unusual stones. I am interested to see if you think this is a possibility. There really is much more to this story, so if this may interest you you can find the evidence at http://www.wix.com/koolkreations/kalopins-legacy
