Residents baffled over what caused a giant sinkhole in a Kansas pasture

August 5, 2013 NEAR GOODLAND, Kan. A mysterious, massive hole in the earth is attracting visitors to western Kansas. Geologists and engineers are still trying to determine how and why the ground gave way in this particular spot south of Goodland in the middle of someone’s pasture. “Man had nothing to do with this. This is a God thing,” said Larry Townsend, Wallace County Sheriff. “There’s no oil well around here. There are no irrigation wells anywhere near. This is something that just happened.” The sink hole is about 200 feet across and 90 feet deep. Some people have let their curiosity overtake their caution and have hiked down into the cavity, but the sheriff warns that hiking into it is a bad idea because they don’t know what’s under it and if it will further collapse. –Fox 4KC

    Wow… that’s beautiful…. I mean… wow, that’s ugly…. I don’t know.. it’s something, for sure.

    Revelation 12:16
    New King James Version (NKJV)

    16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

    The conspirist part of me would tentatively say that there is some type of satellite warfare underway…. but in the middle of nowhere in Kansas? Probably not.

    I’m now thinking that it’s a sign that even though things looked pretty regular before.. that things can collapse under them at any moment.. and that hell is waiting for them if they are not saved. Hell is reaching up and trying to catch people whilst they live. It’s a warning.

    hmmm, perhaps the depleted aquifer?

    Alvin,
    Looks like there was just a 5.5 in Guatemala …

  6. I believe this is a sign from God to America. The more our leaders encourage Israel to divide its land and become a “2 nation” state, the more of America will be “divided” by God.

    • James says:

      Priscilla, what about all the other sinkholes happening outside of America? Is God sending a sign to them also?

    • Cj Randolph says:

      Exactly.
      The LORD God said, “Tell them I AM calling. Tell them to seek Me. Tell them to come out of her.”

      Time to repent & humble ourselves before the LORD worldwide. Especially in the U.S. for The LORD said, “I gave this land of milk & honey for you.”

    It appears that is an area of groundwater restrictions and “closed” streams, likely because the region is dealing with low levels of water. This causes cave ins and sinkholes, especially if people do not respect the water access restrictions.

    Notice the upper left portion of the state of Kansas has closed streams (red lines) and groundwater (specked red); this is the where Goodland is located.

    Had it been possible for a Lecture to cause the mountains to move, or the earth to be torn asunder, or the dead to
    speak, (this Qur’an would have done so). Nay, but Allah’s is the whole command. Do not those who believe know that,
    had Allah willed, He could have guided all mankind? As for those who disbelieve, disaster ceaseth not to strike them
    because of what they do, or it dwelleth near their home until the threat of Allah come to pass. Lo! Allah faileth not to
    keep the tryst.

    I wonder if for this sink hole the plate underneath the USA is being pulled in two directions and forming a split that is allowing the top crust to settle into the cracks being formed by the ever widening rift down below. I would think if we see more of these major sink holes develop in the mid west the Mississippi river might just be changing directions soon. We will just have to watch and see.

    “It’s gravity, but not as we know it, Jim”
    Why are weakness in the cruse suddenly giving in? Maybe because the magnetic field is weakening and one of the side effects is sinkholes.

    Something I found interesting about this sinkhole is that it’s located 170 miles from Lebanon, KS. Lebanon, KS is the geographic center of the conterminous United States.
    In other words, this sinkhole is darn near the center of the U.S.!

    • Joseph t Repas says:

      Well; this country is certainly being torn apart…I suppose physically as well!

    • Todd says:

      What should be glaring to all people is that for the most part, these sinkholes have been in area’s that are not heavily populated or at least the sinkholes have not cause massive damage on a massive scale and with ver few deaths, this is a clear indicator of the Mercy of God, in the same way a parent keeps warning the child until the punishment comes all of a sudden!

      Ecclesiasticus 5:9 [For his wrath shall come on a sudden], and in the time of vengeance he will destroy thee.

      Isaias (Isaiah) 30:13 Therefore shall this iniquity [sin] be to you as a breach that falleth, and is found wanting in a high wall, for the destruction [thereof shall come on a sudden, when it is not looked for].

      The problem with people is they think everything is occurring naturally, kind of like, “oh these things happen all the time”, No! these things are happening on a supernatural scale, coming from God but based on the fact that the people of Noe’s time were doing the everyday things, right up until the day, that the floods came, it will be the same this time, unfortunately!

      Matthew 24:38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, even till that day in which Noe entered into the ark, [And they knew not till the flood came, and took them all away; *so also shall the coming of the Son of man be*].

      Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, [and many there are who go in thereat]. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and [few there are that find it]!

    Sink hole swallowed up a condo in Clermont, Florida. 60′ across and 15′ deep, the building collapsed.
