Mt. Baigong and the Chinese pipes

Qinghai province of China

Toson Lake

      In the Qinghai province of northwest China, 25 kilometers southeast of Qinghai’s Delingha city, located in the depths of the Qaidam Basin, is Toson Lake. 
On the shore of this lake are hundreds of strange post-like rock out-croppings.  

Mt. Baigong
     Two hundred and sixty feet from the shore of this lake (which is salt water and has a nearby twin that is fresh) lies Mt. Baigong, a pyramid shaped mountain with a smaller mountain that you can see on the far right of this photo.

Notice the fenced off cave entrance
in the center of this photo.  
Also notice the soldier on guard in the lower left.

     Within that smaller hill lie three caves.  Two have collapsed and cannot be entered.  One is still open, but is very small, only about eighteen to twenty feet deep.  
     Within that remaining cave can be seen rusty red pipes coming out of the wall of the cave and going into the ground.  There are about a dozen pipes in the cave, measuring anywhere from four to sixteen inches in diameter. 

     Locals have known about the pipes for centuries.  Dozens of pipe openings have been discovered in the mountains far above the caves.
   On the beach of Toson Lake, many more iron pipes run in unlikely patterns and in a variety of diameters, toothpick-sized at the thinnest. More pipes are in the lake, some protruding above the water surface, others buried beneath the lake’s bed.  They’re uniform in size and seem to have been created in an intentional pattern.  They run in the east-west direction with a diameter between 2 and 4.5 centimeters. They are of various strange shapes and the thinnest is like a toothpick, but not blocked inside after many years of sand movement, shifting that would normally break pipes in the ground.
      This is in an area that is completely inhospitable to man – no civilization is ever known to have lived there.
Most of the information you can find online about the Baigong Pipes appears to be originally sourced from a 2002 article from the 'Xinhua News Agency', talking about preparations by a team of scientists about to embark to this remote area to study the pipes. According to Qin Jianwen, head of the publicity department of the Delingha government, scraps of the mysterious pipes were once taken to a local smeltery for analysis.

     The result shows that they are made up of 30 per cent ferric oxide with a large amount of silicon dioxide and calcium oxide (which is basically sand or glass). Eight per cent of the content could not be identified. "The large content of silicon dioxide and calcium oxide is a result of long interaction between iron and sandstone, which means the pipes must be very old," said Liu Shaolin, the engineer who did the analysis. "This result has made the site even more mysterious," Qin said. "Nature is harsh here. There are no residents, let alone modern industry in the area, only a few migrating herdsmen to the north of the mountain."
This blog has been written with the sole purpose of using the ample evidence available to verify and support the biblical record, while refuting the copious propaganda that is shoved down our throats daily by materialistic uniformitarians.
It is my contention that the Bible describes God's original creation of people with extraordinary capabilities who subsequently built an advanced civilization that exceeds our own. That civilization was destroyed in the Great Flood and we have spent the last 5,000 years trying to re-build that civilization. I contend that science supports all this in multiple disciplines, but this information is ignored or suppressed by various people who have an opposing agenda.
Nothing that you see on this blog is original. Any fact that you see here is obtainable on a dozen different websites and books. I use these facts and photos, without violating their copyrights, under the legal principle of fair use practice. That is, I use them one time, for educational purposes only.
The point is, nothing here is made up. The only thing that I do (or need to do) is assemble this information in a discernible pattern.
You might want to read through the first entry posted on this blog (Past Remembering: Thoughts toward a coherent view of our ancient past, our present and our future) in order to understand my theoretical and theological underpinnings more clearly.

The truth is there. You just have to see it.

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 (NASB)

That which has been is that which will be,

And that which has been done is that which will be done.

So there is nothing new under the sun.

Is there anything of which one might say,

“See this, it is new”?

Already it has existed for ages

Which were before us.
