Explosive Gas in Lousiana

Everyone is so caught up with the holidays that potential breakthroughs are being overlooked right and left!!! Geologists near Lake Peigneur in Louisiana have found that the lake is emitting volatile methane gas bubbles from an UNKNOWN NATURAL SOURCE.

Here is the article.

I believe that a similar natural gas source is responsible for the Buttermilk sinkholes.



Deluded teenagers and fad-makers have turned the Buttermilk phenomenon into a campfire story – the steam in these screen stills from the video I’ve put up on the main site show that the rifts in the ground were caused by pressure swellings not alien creatures.

I believe that the mountain is undergoing an accelerated tectonic movement and spontaneous sinkholes such as the one that occurred here are very likely to re-occur.
I recommend that all activity on the mountain should be suspended until authorities can perform the necessary tests to guarantee everyone’s safety.

“Alive” can mean different things

Now that I’ve added this video showing the violent strata shift to the BIA website I’ve been receiving faux emails from pranksters with subject lines like Buttermilk Is Alive and the Monster in the Mountain. Rest assured, nothing has changed in m mind, I know there is no creature lurking underneath the snow.

So to answer the question about the mountain swallowing things, 😉 I believe the region shares the sharp velocity mantle transitions that characterize the Cenozoic Uplift, but in the case of the Buttermilk sinkholes in particular, I suspect the terrain shifts are a result of the mantle being porous – which is extremely rare for this area, not sure how it developed – which gains pressure as gas fills up those spaces, until it is released violently through spontaneous fissures in the ground, and then recedes as the gas is expelled. I developed this theory in 1994 (see March log entry on my site) and for the most part it still holds water today.

So Buttermilk might be “alive” – just not the way they mean on the damn tee shirts.

Do you believe in magic?

Personally, I do not. I believe every mystery has an explanation, some explanations we as are prepared to accept and others were are not.

Apparently, I have some new readers who agree with me because they are challenging the tabloids, and asking “what actually goes on at Buttermilk?” The truth is, the kind of phenomena that happen on Buttermilk and are routinely mis-categorized as “extraterrestrial” or “magical”. To address comments from theseekerof77 and TranierBoy specifically, throughout the years there have been several reported disappearances, strange noises (similar to the Taos Hum) and unusual light displays (similar to the northern lights) at Buttermilk mountain. Although I cannot explain all of these phenomena, I am CONFIDENT that the mountain is just a geological anomaly – not an alien, and further scientific explanation will bring the truth – not the myth – to light.

new AMAZING discovery!!!

Just returned from the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco where they claim to have discovered the energy source behind auroras borealis, which most of us know as the “northern lights”.  Using five – yes, FIVE – NASA satellites they propose that the energy comes from charged particles that come from the sun and travel through magnetic fields all across the planet only to explode in a shimmering display of light.

Great work guys. (And people call ME crazy!)  🙂

I’m not serious of course, I’m sure this new research on the lights was conducted in a thorough fashion and the report is sound. What gets my goat is, NASA is using five multi-million dollar satellites to explain the northern lights because they are pretty, popular, and great for tourism. Something like Buttermilk, which is darker and scary and swallows vagrants – now that’s easier to dismiss as myth. Its all politics.

This site does a good job of showing how the Northern Lights is similar to Buttermilk because it started as magic and myth but gradually earned a scientific explanation – in this case, solar winds and magnetic fields.

Apples and Oranges

I’ve been thinking that perhaps my expectations of people are too high. With so many problems that need addressing, its difficult for people to focus on just one. For example, people who argue with me that a thorough Buttermilk investigation would damage the environment. I’m reading this and I’m thinking – as a country we could cut our energy consumption increase in half if people switched from incandescent bulbs to fluorescent bulbs. All people have to do is buy a different bulb, there is no lifestyle change involved – and its especially relevant now as it gets dark earlier. You Environmentalists can write to me to change my mission for Buttermilk but you can’t get people change a bulb?

Are you kidding?

healthy discussion

I want to remind new readers that the Critics & Skeptics page is for structured debate about Buttermilk, and opinions which I consider to be inconsiderate or spiteful will not get
