Among the Deceived

I went back the next day to look in the caves I found.

I don't know if the East Coast Dragon was a dragon, but if you want to know more about it go to the Mudfossil University channel on youtube. I'm simply looking through the biology/geology above and below ground to see if there is any merit in it and, hopefully, collecting footage that one day furthers the mudfossil discussion.

Continuing to look for access to the larger cave network that I think exists in this area, hoping that what is under the surface will add useful information to understanding the natural history above the surface. I found 5 or 6 new caves today that are long enough to qualify as caves, along with several that are cave-like, but not long enough to technically be considered caves.

I don't know if the ECD was actually a dragon, but if you want to find out about the ECD, look on the Mudfossil University channel on youtube.

I do not know if the East Coast Dragon is one. I am merely examining the biology/geology of a region of what would be its neck and throat area in the hope that it furthers the mudfossil discussion. To learn about the ECD, you can find it on the Mudfossil University channel on youtube.

I've been looking for an entrance to a cave network that I am fairly certain exists in the ground beneath this area. I have found several caves about a mile away. This area is on the northern side of the neck of the East Coast Dragon, which I am still undecided on. To learn about the ECD, check out Mudfossil University channel on youtube. The more I explore this area, the more I find that gives me pause.

This set of 3 videos is probably like watching grass grow, but I wanted to put it up because I believe that one day the biological geology of this area will add something helpful to the growing discussion of what this earth is actually made of and the nature of the natural history of the earth.

Apparently, the first name of this plant that causes allergic reactions and itchy rashes is forbidden on this platform. That is fine. House rules. I don't know if this would work for everyone, but it certainly did for me.

I had set out for a quick bushwhacking hike for something else, but wound up looking at some layers in a river channel. This river channel is in the northern side of the throat of the so-called East Coast Dragon. If the ECD turns out to be what it appears to be, then tidbits like this may one day prove useful. I recorded it and am uploading simply to have it parked somewhere that it could at least be found later.

Still searching, but finally located a pelvic bone that looks similar to the one in the Unique Trail of Bones, assuming the biggest bone in the chain is a pelvic bone.

At the outside chance that the largest bone in this trail of bones is half of a pelvic bone, I returned to hunt the area for the head of the creature.

I returned again to the unique trail of bones to remove the thorns, vines, saplings, dirt, and moss from the largest bone in this line of bones to get a better look at it. This one bone is the only one of its kind that I have found. It is a very distinguishing break from the pattern I have been following in this location and it is unlike any other bone I have found to this point anywhere. After getting this one dug out and cleaned up, I have scrapped my hypotheses that this particular bone could be from a snake and that it could be a vertebra at all.

As I studied its shape yesterday, it appears to bear a resemblance to one side of a human pelvis (the right side of an anterior view) more than anything else I have found to this point, but that is simply an observation. If this is a human pelvis bone, it would be expected that the vertebrae closest to the pelvis would be larger than those at the cervical end of the spine, which appears to be what I am observing on the ground. I have nothing conclusive yet. I am simply making observations.

I am back to square one, trying my best to allow the observations to lead the way to identifying what this creature was.

At this point, I have followed and mapped this trail of bones as best as I can through the very thick vegetation and believe I may have finally located each end of it, but am not entirely certain of that yet. It still appears to me that this trail of bones is a trail of vertebrae measuring roughly 16' in length at the location of this video and roughly 6' in length at the other end where the trail disappears, but that is simply a best guess at the moment. It will take many more visits and likely cleaning some more of them off for a better look at what is what. One end of the trail is around the bone in this video and what I believe to be the other end of it is roughly 2,000 feet away.

I will be uploading more videos on this creature and will include "A Unique Trail of Bones" in the title to make them easier to associate as the same creature in the same area.

While I'm in the realm of crazy, this is also in the throat area of the East Coast Dragon. To find out about the East Coast Dragon, search for it on the Mudfossil University channel on youtube. I'm not stating I believe the ECD is or is not a dragon. I reference it in the title because if the ECD really is a fossilized, decomposing dragon, then the fact that this video location is along the neck of the ECD may help identify the geology/biology in this video at a later date.

I don't know what this is, but it is large. I believe I may have stumbled into a string of vertebrae, the largest of which is roughly 27' x 20'. I am working to figure out what it is and this is part of my journey to do so.

The vultures of death finally moved out of this cave so I could get inside it. Found it a few months back, but every time I climbed into the cave, vultures would come helicoptering out of the narrow passage. After three months, the vultures finally moved on so I was able to get into the cave.

If you are considering divorce, are divorcing, or have custody issues before you, here are a few thoughts I decided to put on video while heading out on a mudfossil hike.

This is an area recently opened up and this video is my first glimpse of an area with strangely similar and symmetric rocks. I had not yet realized there are a bunch of them that form a line. I am adding this part of the description a few weeks later, on 9-1-19. As I have explored this area more, I have been following a line of what looks like the same bones that cover an area, as best as I can put together today, around 1/4 mile long and roughly 50'-80' in width. At the moment, the bones look like the vertebrae of a snake or something similar. I don't know what it is, but as of right now, I believe I have finally figured out its orientation across the landscape and its approximate widths. I will be uploading more videos on this creature and will include "A Unique Trail of Bones" in the title to make them easier to locate and tie together as the same creature in the same area.

The shapes and patterns I keep finding in place after place, to me, speak strongly of design, not random chance. This was a cursory look at an area new to me. Forgive the blurry shake at the beginning. I forgot I had changed the settings on my camera.

I have been unable to go mudfossil hunting for about the past six weeks. I had a little bit of time this past weekend so I made a quick trip to a river bottom that has been a mudfossil treasure trove for me. I did not shoot much video because I was showing someone new to this rabbit hole a sample of the many different things I have found in that river bottom, which was time well spent. I shot this all in one area that is full of bones and what I believe at this point to be tendonous material, more as a record for me to revisit. I am posting it, as always, as a means of hopefully providing more observations for anyone interested to be able to further the investigation into mudfossils on a smaller scale and the history of our world on a larger scale. The person with me turned out to have quite an eye for mudfossils and brought to me what I believe is possibly a a finger or toe bone. I expect to be able to return to mudfossil hunting with diligence within a couple weeks.

I have, for as long as I can remember, been disposed to questioning the "facts" around me. With age, I have realized how strongly we tend to force the truth to fit between the parking spaces of our particular worldview. Most of us view as hostile the notion that we can be deceived. I am unabashedly a follower of Jesus because I have questioned and challenged the Bible and Jesus to show me that they are both real and accurate for nearly 40 years now and I have found them to both be real and accurate. My formal background is in the natural sciences and theology. My passion since the age of 11 has been the cultures of ancient Mesopotamia, particularly the religion of those areas and, more precisely, the giants mentioned not only in the Christian Bible, but also throughout the world's cultures. The subject of giants is greeted with hostility and cognitive dissonance throughout most Christian circles in the United States so I have kept my investigations moving along but below the radar unless someone broaches the subject. The subject of giants in the secular scientific and historical circles is one that experience has shown me to be a taboo. I do not view other people's positions along their particular journeys through this life as a personal threat and have never stayed away from examining a large host of subjects, many of which those around me viewed as hostile to my faith in Jesus. I'm not afraid to ask questions or to question what I believe. Three decades ago, I was praying and told God the most liberating words that have yet left my mouth - "Jesus, I am among the deceived." People know I have spent much of my life examining the obscure so they mention things to me once in a while that they would like my take on. Someone mentioned a youtube channel titled "Mudfossil University" to me several months ago so I started coursing through Roger's videos and, as much as I wanted to dismiss the subject and return to the routine of my life, the more I watched and listened to what he was presenting on mudfossils the more I wanted to make my own observations, which I have been doing. I started this channel to have a place to dump some of the video that I have been shooting while investigating the subject. I am not a tech guy or videographer by any stretch of the imagination, but perhaps my observations help further someone else's journey into the subject. If not, there is nothing lost.
