The trillion dollar stimulus bill will soon provide 375 million dollars to cap dangerous desert mines

 

The same mines used by California desert Indians for secret underground religious behavior

All above L. A. times text.

 

(It cost about 2,000 dollars to cap the mine pictured above which is designed to allow passage for bats).

Ranger Kyle Nelson focuses on an old RC cola bottle (bottle identified with a magnifier from original news photo).

 

 

The news story goes on ---

It never occurs to anyone involved that those beer and wine bottles are the religious objects of a major religion of the world

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following is my photo record of the same Queen of Sheba mine above, recorded two and a half years earlier in February,  2000

 

 

Blue arrow is the small tunnel ranger Nelson was standing in in the previous photo.

Red arrow: religious hearth at car.

The ancestors come up out the tunnel onto the road, then to the hearth where they would pick a few prayers then take in the car out onto the highways and byways of the American west.

This is the basic monument design that is repeated over and over again throughout the desert

 

 

 

External offering, shovel in same tunnel mouth.

 

 

 

 

 

Tailings hearth --- burned tires ---  a typical religious hearth on tailings outside tunnel.

 

 

 

Hearth with a stove door placed directly on top of it directly outside the tunnel mouth.

The burned tire hearth --- the stove door hearth--- the shovel make up the external pieces of a religious bread crumb trail of offerings that is repeated again and again in the desert west.

 

 

 

 

 

First internal tunnel offering --- one of a bread crumb trail.

No other fragments found in tunnel

 

 

 

 

 

Next internal offerings:  cabinet drawers, a bag of lime broken in association with drawers,  crushed bud beer can.  Offerings all.

 

 

 

A rusty can and pages from an old magazine also part of lime scatter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEDDING IS THE MOST COMMON TUNNEL MOUTH OFFERING.  EMPTY BAG OF FORD MOTOR CAR PARTS IS AN OFFERING IN ITS OWN RIGHT.

 

 

SAME BED LOOKING IN --- LONG ELECTRIC CORD WITH ATTACHED JUNCTION BOX.  A TYPICAL OFFERING IN ITS OWN RIGHT.

 

 

 

Still Queen of Sheba mine.

Above:  Badwater in far background.

NO SIGN OF A FIRE EVER HAVING BEEN MADE IN THIS HEARTH,   THREE INTRUSIVE OFFERINGS PLACED IN HEARTH.

 

A RELIGIOUS HEARTH, PURE AND SIMPLE.

(A)  The flattened rusty can came from a distant roadway.

(B) The jar which has never been near a fire.

(C) Unburned bones.

THAT'S RELIGION FOLKS

WHAT THOSE FOLKS DOWN AT THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE HAVE NEVER FIGURED OUT IS THAT  ALL THOSE BEER CANS AND STUFF ARE RELIGIOUS AS HELL
