There are many theories surrounding Devil’s Tower and other sites like it. We will be exploring each one in different posts over the coming months and we will try to look at all of the theories in detail. One of the leading theories is Devil’s Tower is the remnants of enormous tree! Could there possibly have been giant trees in the old world? Think Avatar, the movie.
This has taken lead in recent years due to the hexagonal structure of trees matching the pattern of the Tower. These same hexagonal structures can be found in many locations around the world, termed as Basalt columns, the leading main stream theory, and the possible root system potentially found by GPR. The aim is to expand upon this introduction and add links to the tree related articles, and to the alternative Mud fossil theory. But for now, here are a few pictures from the archive to get us thinking. And please tell us what you think! The more we challenge each subject the closer we will get to the truth.
We have also found an interesting quote from the book of Enoch regarding angels and trees below.
There are still some giant trees standing today, maybe not as big, but big enough to give this theory more weight.
The Book of Enoch — Chapter 66
1 In those days the word of God came to me, and said, Noah, behold, thy lot has ascended up to me, a lot void of crime, a lot beloved and upright.
2 Now then shall the angels labour at the trees; but when they proceed to this, I will put my hand upon it, and preserve it.
3 The seed of life shall arise from it, and a change shall take place, that the dry land may not be left empty. I will establish thy seed before me for ever and ever, and the seed of those who dwell with thee on the surface of the earth. It shall be blessed and multiplied in the presence of the earth, in the name of the Lord.
4 And they shall confine those angels who disclosed impiety. In that burning valley it is, that they shall be confined, which at first my great-grandfather Enoch showed me in the west, where there were mountains of gold and silver, of iron, of fluid metal, and of tin.
5 I beheld that valley in which there was great perturbation, and where the waters were troubled.
6 And when all this was effected, from the fluid mass of fire, and the perturbation which prevailed in that place, there arose a strong smell of sulphur, which became mixed with the waters; and the valley of the angels, who had been guilty of seduction, burned underneath its soil.
7 Through that valley also rivers of fire were flowing, to which those angels shall be condemned, who seduced the inhabitants of the earth.
8 And in those days shall these waters be to kings, to princes, to the exalted, and to the inhabitants of the earth, for the healing of the soul and body, and for the judgment of the spirit.
9 Their spirits shall be full of revelry, that they may be judged in their bodies; because they have denied the Lord of spirits, and although they perceive their condemnation day by day, they believe not in his name.
10 And as the inflammation of their bodies shall be great, so shall their spirits undergo a change for ever.
11 For no word which is uttered before the Lord of spirits shall be in vain.
12 Judgment has come upon them, because they trusted in their carnal revelry, and denied the Lord of spirits.
13 In those days shall the waters of that valley be changed; for when the angels shall be judged, then shall the heat of those springs of water experience an alteration.
14 And when the angels shall ascend, the water of the springs shall again undergo a change, and be frozen. Then I heard holy Michael answering and saying, This judgment, with which the angels shall be judged, shall bear testimony against the kings, the princes, and those who possess the earth.
15 For these waters of judgment shall be for their healing, and for the death of their bodies. But they shall not perceive and believe that the waters will be changed, and become a fire, which shall blaze for ever.
