2.6 Billion Year Old Water Found in Canada's Underground Channels

May 16 2013, 6:56am CDT | by , in News | Misc

2.6 Billion Year Old Water Found in Canada's Underground Channels
 
 

A finding that has recently stunned scientists is the discovery of 2.64 billion years old water channels a mile underneath the ground in Canada. This finding could prove crucial in the search for the wellsprings of life on not only Earth but Mars too. The Red Planet has a similar tectonic structure and so could have once harbored life.

There is a mine discovered in the under ground channels of Canada that contains water. This water is proved to be 2.64 billion years old through experiments. Water is the secret of life. It is the one elementary chemical substance besides carbon that is responsible for the make-up of ordinary living organisms. It is not only a universal solvent but forms a major portion of the earth’s structure. The human body is more than 70% water.

Coming back to the main point, a geography lecturer at a Canadian university has made a startling discovery related to how the earth’s geological changes were in action at least two billion years ago. Publishing the results of his studies in Nature Magazine, the professor spoke of how the deep sources of water trapped a mile beneath the earth’s surface were a clue to how life came from the primal soup during the early days of the planet’s formation. In its own time the water probably existed on the surface yet today it was more than a mile down under the ground. The era we are talking about existed prior to when the dinosaurs roamed the jungle swamps.  According to Discover, the site happened to be the Timmins Mine.

Gazing at what occurred approximately a billion years ago in the sub-structure of the earth offers answers to many unexplained questions.  What was the fate of the water? Did it breed unicellular organisms? Scientists are examining the water for microbes. The geology of earth reveals that 99% of the species that once existed have all gone extinct at one time or another. How this points to the future of man as a species is questionable and thought-provoking indeed. Will the world end without man as it started without him when seen from an evolutionary point of view. Or is man Nature’s biggest blunder? Will he shift his species to other planets by terra-forming thereby ensuring his immortality? These are potent questions.

Then there is the matter of life on Mars. Or at least there is the fact that once upon a time it did exist. The Red Planet has canals and it has been a long time since talk of Martians existed in human parlance. What this new discovery of ancient water trapped beneath the earth points to will become news soon.
