Stolen History

I came across this story just now, as I thought mm, 1700? Isn’t that about the time we discuss for possible world wide cataclysm?

The Ghost Forrest of Neskowin, Oregon

Reading the article, the rhetoric is the same of that which we use here… Mud, Tsunami etc


‘Geologists believe there was once a vast forest of cedar and sitka spruce trees on this spot, about 90 miles southwest of Portland, reports The Telegraph. They likely stood as tall as 200 feet. But in 1700, a massive earthquake struck the area, burying the towering trees deep in mud and eventually the ocean’

Key words: Likely, Mud, Ocean…

‘Then powerful storms caused by El Nino ravaged the coast in the winter of 1997 to 1998. The fierce storm eroded parts of the beach, unearthing the remnants of the once-towering trees’


So until 1998, no one knew these trees where there? No boats or ships had ever struck them? Does this region still grow 200ft cedar and sitka spruce trees?

it seems that there are a few around…

‘Sitka spruce assumes growth forms from low, twisted, gnarled headland scrub that is deformed by wind-blown sand and salt spray to trees of impressive size. A tree at Quinault Lake in Olympic National Park in Washington State is 191 feet tall. A tree in Clatsop County, Oregon, on county land, claimed to be the National Champion, is 206 feet tall. Both trees are nearly 18 feet in diameter.’


‘Visitors now can see about 100 ancient tree stumps rising from the sand and waves when the tide is out. More stumps are visible in winter when tides are at their lowest. Travel Oregon describes the unveiling as “a mysterious and beautiful sightseer’s dream.”

The petrified trees are draped in barnacles, mussels and other sea creatures’

“The center of some of the particularly large stumps have been eroded away, creating shallow pools in which sea life gets trapped when the tide is out,” writes Sarah Betty in Travel Oregon. “You can sometimes see small fish or crabs in these little pools, waiting for the tide to come back in and release them back into the ocean.”

What caught my eye was the date of 1700, a quick google on the earthquake bring up this from waki The Cascadia Earthquake

‘The earthquake caused a tsunami which struck the coast of Japan, and may also be linked to the Bonneville Slide and the Tseax Cone eruption in British Columbia.

Saying this event made it all the way to Japan, and may be linked to other events is a great way of hiding a worldwide event?

The opening line on waki:

‘The earthquake took place at about 21:00 Pacific Time on January 26, 1700 (NS). Although there are no written records for the region from the time, the timing of the earthquake has been inferred from Japanese records of a tsunami that does not correlate with any other Pacific Rim quake. The Japanese records exist primarily in the modern-day Iwate Prefecture, in communities such as Tsugaruishi, Kuwagasaki and Ōtsuchi.’

Roughly translated, we are making this up. I am sure the good people of Oregon would be keeping written records in 1700s.

If we search disasters in Japan 1700 we get this from 3 years later Genroku earthquake but on a quick search I could find nothing else.

I don’t have time just now to search further, but I would be interested to see if forum members can shed any more light on this location and events.

Are we talking singular event, or part of a bigger cataclysm?
