I've always wondered how all the dirt and plants, etc. changed to silica over the eons.

But they dont do that, do they? Sand is from weathered rocks, like sandstone, or any other rock to be fair

And somewhere under all of that dirt is water.  I've read articles about the "ocean" of water beneath the Sahara.  It does look a bit like beach sand, doesn't it?

My late father during World War 2 was in North Africa. I recall him talking about the rock paintings. Daddy also mentioned about how from the air,when they were flying over the desert,you could see what appeared to be the remains of cities or towns .He was a flight crew chief and mechanic with the 376 Liberators and bombed the Ploesti Romanian Oil fields amongst other places. I once asked him did they ever attempt to do archeological digs at these sites, and he said as far as he knew,no. Some were rather remote, not easy to get to apparently.

it's the 26,000 year cycle or "Earth Wobble" which means the tropics drift up and down over this period of time. The Sahara will one day be a lush savannah again (at the expense of another region).

http://en.wikipedia....nkovitch_cycles

This is all to do with the natural cycle of the Earth's orbit around the sun but something that those that tax us like to call "climate change" which itself was an updated "buzzword" for "global warming" which was dropped once the powers that be realised that particular buzzword bulls**t would not stick much longer.

There is always a denier who fails to read his own links:

Currently the Earth is tilted at 23.44 degrees from its orbital plane, roughly halfway between its extreme values. The tilt is in the decreasing phase of its cycle, and will reach its minimum value around the year 11,800 CE ; the last maximum was reached in 8,700 BCE. This trend in forcing, by itself, tends to make winters warmer and summers colder (i.e. milder seasons), as well as cause an overall cooling trend, but the instrumental temperature record shows a comparatively sudden rise in global temperatures in the 20th and 21st centuries attributed to man-made greenhouse gas emissions.[7]

For best available information on the Saharan Peoples and what eventually happened to them, read the Urantia Book, Paper 80:2.1. You can find this on page 890 of the Urantia Book. You can also read and search the Urantia Book online. Try www.urantiabook or www.urantiabookonlinestudyedition
