8 Destiny of Abandoned Mines

Destiny of Abandoned Mines

Posted on August 5, 2012 by team

Human yearning to change the space around is really endless. We always try to prove that we are stonger and smarter than nature. We fly in the air and turn out tons of soil making giant open pits. The pits go hundreds of meters deep and stretch underground for kilometers showing what human mind and will are capable of. We see them from space and get impressed by the scale of the human “dictatorship”. But what we don’t see is how the nature swallows the traces of human “interference”.

Let’s see what happens with pits when they get abandoned and are not used by people anymore.

Their development began back in the 16th century. Its adits were used for limestone extraction that was the main material for building “White Moscow”. Today these stone pits are 5500 m long.

    I’m not sure humans think they are stronger or smarter than Nature (with the exception of conservatives, who suffer from self-delusion); rather humans were/are tool makers and wanderers and then, farmers. And agriculture was a strategy of long-term survival. But because agriculture increased lifespans and numbers of people humans developed technologies and strategies to modify nature to ensure survival. And then humans needed metals for the technologies, hence mines. Consciousness drove humans to advanced technologies unavailable to other species that caused major changes in the Earth’s surface; humans terraformed the Earth. (But entropy never sleeps)

      Very good comment (r)evolutionist.

      Are you sure you are not a school teacher.

      • (r)evolutionist says:

        Thanks, geoff. No, I’m just another fool struggling for survival. You make a bad joke about someone’s religion (conservatism) and the lynch mob is in the streets. They have a right to insult radicalism but instead take things personal and rant about me having a mental illness. Owls??! (And by the way, I’m not a liberal-someone needs to read a dictionary)

    • Fred Johnson says:

      You are so delusional. It’s liberals that are always trying to control, and mold, and “protect” nature, to the point of destroying.

      Only a liberal would ever come up with a plan to destroy animals, that were there BY nature, because they’re interfering with the lives of owls put there BY liberals, and are being “protected” and controlled by liberals.

      Yeah! The stupid ass liberals are killing other animals, because they’re eating their precious owls that they’re trying to save. Once again, trying to control and “rule” nature.
      Do you always spout crap you know nothing about? Or is it only here where you vomit your stupid BS and lies? Feel at home here with the communist do you? Dream of the old soviet system returning do you?
      If ANYbody here suffers from self-delusion, it’s you. I always thought you were just a troll, well, you are, but not “just” a troll, because I think you actually believe the lies you vomit fourth every time you post.

        “Do you always spout c**p you know nothing about? Or is it only here where you vomit your stupid BS and lies?”

        Applies perfectly to you, as does this statement from you, “I think you actually believe the lies you vomit fourth every time you post.”

        Just a thought, all the things you accused (r)evoulotionist of, you are just as guilty of.

      • Chac Mool says:

        @Fred: So, you hate owls (?). Thank God you’re so educated and tolerant… Hurry up, go and kill all the damn birds that are “there”.

      • geoff says:

        Fred, (r)evolutionist has been posting here for a couple years now, and what ever he is, he is not rude or does not make nasty personal comments about other people on here. If you read his comments you will realize he only wants one world for everyone, with no silly divisions such as “Communist” or “Liberal” or any other wrongly attached label.

        Don’t take your self so seriously.

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.
