I think you've missed the point, the point is a hole that size and depth based on the picture while being so clean could not possibly have been caused by any natural or mundane cause but HAS to be supernatural in origin!

It could be the ka-woosh of an over-sized Stargate

Technically, that would still be natural, albeit harnessed.

This isn't the first sinkhole that looks weirdly, unnaturally circular. See the Great Blue Hole, off the coast of Belize. Pretty crazy stuff.

Perhaps, depending on your definitions, but I'm just pointing out that it doesn't HAVE to be supernatural.

Duh. I see no reason a sinkhole couldn't be perfectly symmetrical.

In general it's asymmetry, not symmetry, that needs explanation, although of course with erosion on something as inhomogenous as the average piece of ground, the explanation is not difficult.

We get sinkholes quite regularly in our area -- although mostly ours just develop into house-sized, bowl-shaped depressions in the ground. There are several in my neighborhood, and one took out the roadway near a high school a few years back (we suspected a Hellmouth). And round is a common shape for them.

This clean and this deep? I can't count it out as impossible.

Central America specializes in creating difficult-to-explain phenomena.

How about this one? It was big enough to fly a helicopter into.

Doesn't that make everything "natural albeit harnessed"?

Woah, I heard about this thing but seeing the hole is freaky.

It's like the Great Pit of Carkoon.

I don't think so.

Wormholes, assuming they exist in the way that Kip Thorne (and others) posits, are natural. The stargate just grabs 'em, as it were. I see that as different than most technology. *shrug*
