This is the ChronologyTruth page for the topic of mudfloods.

What is up with the mudflood hype?

The current mudflood hype is about the idea that our history is not as it may appear. This idea is based on observations of buildings which appear to have been built prior to being mysteriously flooded with mud and other earth materials. That is to say, it appears that some buildings were created, and later a “mudflood” swept through their areas to leave them buried underground. There seems to be a strange mystery surrounding when these floods happened and what the implications may be. Discovering our true past seems to me to be the main drive behind mudflood researchers.

What is a “mudflood”?

As mentioned above, it is a “flooding” of natural materials. It appears to me to be similar to a ‘mudflow’. A mudflow is a type of ‘mass wasting’. Mass wasting is the geomorphic process by which soil, sand, regolith, and rock move downslope typically as a solid, continuous, or discontinuous mass.

The video below is an example of a mudflow. I imagine this is what is being referred to as a mudflood, or mudfloods/mudflooding.
I wonder when this Swiss flood control channel was constructed. What would have happened to those beautiful homes had it not been there?

Another video example is below.

RAW: Video shows moment mudslide hits

As you can see, these flows/floods/slides are no joke. In less than two minutes, that entire family was stranded in their home. You can see even the man in the street who was about to drive into the mudslide didn’t even do anything until this man warned him. I imagine floods as these which hit in the 1800s would have been even more difficult to prepare for.

History of Geology

Given that mudfloods are a geological event, it is useful for perspective to look into the history of geology. How long have humans been making an effort to study the earth? Who do we typically credit as the founding father of geology (the study of the earth’s physical structure and substance, its history, and the processes that act on it)?

The answer to the first question seems to be unattainable for now. The answer to the second question is James Hutton (1726-1797). It is not a long read into the history of geology to see that it is a somewhat young study (last 200-300 years). Today, we have well over half the surface of the earth to still explore, and well over 95% of the earth’s body to explore. I think it is safe to say that unless and until we develop better techniques for exploration, observation, and documentation, that these studies can still be considered young.

Why are mudfloods important?

The mudflood study is important for geology and historiography. It is important for geology because it helps us map out earth processes. It is important for historiography because we are able to better understand our past and our world’s past. The mudfloods are yet another piece of the puzzle. Without mudfloods, the puzzle will never be complete.
