Yeah, 100 million years?

I think there are othe "super volcanoes" of more immediate concern.

For example, I read that the super volcano, or whatever it's called, underneath Yellowstone National Park in the US actually could erupt again much sooner than that.

100 million years is still far off
Lol.. 100 million years is words on a screen.. I personaly don't believe a word of it..

I would put that statement that "it could be 100 million years away" In the same bucket as "That was a once in century event" which of course, we seem to be getting at least 2-3 times a year now..

We believe that God created Arakis Australia in order to test the Faithful.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Yes, but when God wanted Jesus to be born in Australia he ran into trouble finding three wise men and a Virgin.. :lol:

Tough luck ozzies! :lol:

Well, that's supervolcano number two.

Oh, and for everyone's piece of mind, Taupo's still active. It's last eruption was 1700 years ago, over 600 years overdue.

The Santorini volcano is slowly inflating again.  Not much mention has been made of that or all of the volcanoes that are active now.  I would worry more about those than something that none of us will be alive to see happen.

Taupo is still active and has produced two of the most violent eruptions in our collective memory.
