    Magnetic polar shifts causing massive Global Superstorms

    by Terrence Aym



    NASA has been warning about it…scientific papers have been written about it…geologists have seen its traces in rock strata and ice core samples…

    Now "it" is here: an unstoppable magnetic pole shift that has sped up and is causing life-threatening havoc with the world's weather.

    Forget about global warming—man-made or natural—what drives planetary weather patterns is the climate and what drives the climate is the sun's magnetosphere and its electromagnetic interaction with a planet's own magnetic field.

    When the field shifts, when it fluctuates, when it goes into flux and begins to become unstable anything can happen. And what normally happens is that all hell breaks loose.
    Magnetic polar shifts have occurred many times in Earth's history. It's happening again now to every planet in the solar system including Earth.
    The magnetic field drives weather to a significant degree and when that field starts migrating superstorms start erupting.

    The superstorms have arrived
    The first evidence we have that the dangerous superstorm cycle has started is the devastating series of storms that pounded the UK during late 2010.

    On the heels of the lashing the British Isles sustained, monster storms began to pummel North America. The latest superstorm—as of this writing—is a monster over the U.S. that stretched across 2,000 miles affecting more than 150 million people.

    Yet even as that storm wreaked havoc across the Western, Southern, Midwestern and Northeastern states, another superstorm broke out in the Pacific and closed in on Australia.

    The southern continent had already dealt with the disaster of historic superstorm flooding from rains that dropped as much as several feet in a matter of hours. Tens of thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed. After the deluge bull sharks were spotted swimming between houses in what was once the quiet town of Goodna.

    Shocked authorities now numbly concede that some of the water may never dissipate and have wearily resigned themselves to the possibility that region will now contain a small inland sea.

    But then only a handful of weeks later another superstorm—the mega-monster cyclone Yasi—struck northeastern Australia. The damage it left in its wake is being called by rescue workers a war zone.

    The incredible superstorm packed winds near 190mph. Although labeled as a category-5 cyclone, it was theoretically a category-6. The reason for that is storms with winds of 155mph are considered

    category-5, yet Yasi was almost 22 percent stronger than that.

    A cat's cradle

    Yet Yasi may only be a foretaste of future superstorms. Some climate researchers, monitoring the rapidly shifting magnetic field, are predicting superstorms in the future with winds as high as 300 to 400mph.

    Such storms would totally destroy anything they came into contact with on land.

    The possibility more storms like Yasi or worse will wreak havoc on our civilization and resources is found in the complicated electromagnetic relationship between the sun and Earth. The synergistic tug-of-war has been compared by some to an intricately constructed cat's cradle. And it's in a constant state of flux.

    The sun's dynamic, ever-changing electric magnetosphere interfaces with the Earth's own magnetic field affecting, to a degree, the Earth's rotation, precessional wobble, dynamics of the planet's core, its ocean currents and—above all else—the weather.

    Cracks in Earth's Magnetic Shield
    The Earth's northern magnetic pole was moving towards Russia at a rate of about five miles annually. That progression to the East had been happening for decades.

    Suddenly, in the past decade the rate sped up. Now the magnetic pole is shifting East at a rate of 40 miles annually, an increase of 800 percent. And it continues to accelerate.

    Recently, as the magnetic field fluctuates, NASA has discovered "cracks" in it. This is worrisome as it significantly affects the ionosphere, troposphere wind patterns, and atmospheric moisture. All three things have an effect on the weather.

    Worse, what shields the planet from cancer-causing radiation is the magnetic field. It acts as a shield deflecting harmful ultra-violet, X-rays and other life-threatening radiation from bathing the surface of the Earth. With the field weakening and cracks emerging, the death rate from cancer could skyrocket and mutations of DNA can become rampant.

    Another federal agency, NOAA, issued a report caused a flurry of panic when they predicted that mammoth superstorms in the future could wipe out most of California. The NOAA scientists said it's a plausible scenario and would be driven by an "atmospheric river" moving water at the same rate as 50 Mississippi rivers flowing into the Gulf of Mexico.

    Magnetic field may dip, flip and disappear
    The Economist wrote a detailed article about the magnetic field and what's happening to it. In the article they noted:

    "There is, however, a growing body of evidence that the Earth's magnetic are lengths of time—about 11,500 years—between major Ice Ages.
    One of the most stunning signs of the approaching Ice Age is what's happened to the Chandler wobble.

    The Earth's wobble has stopped.

    As explained in the geology and space science website earthchangesmedia.com, "The Chandler wobble was first discovered back in 1891 by Seth Carlo Chandler an American astronomer. The effect causes the Earth's poles to move in an irregular circle of 3 to 15 meters in diameter in an oscillation. The Earth's Wobble has a 7-year cycle which produces two extremes, a small spiraling wobble circle and a large spiraling wobble circle, about 3.5 years apart.

    "The Earth was in October 2005 moving into the small spiraling circle (the MIN phase of the wobble), which should have slowly unfolded during 2006 and the first few months of 2007. (Each spiraling circle takes about 14 months). But suddenly at the beginning of November 2005, the track of the location of the spin axis veered at a very sharp right angle to its circling motion.

    "The track of the spin axis began to slow down and by about January 8, 2006, it ceased nearly all relative motion on the x and y coordinates which are used to define the daily changing location of the spin axis."

    And the Earth stopped wobbling—exactly as predicted as another strong sign of an imminent Ice Age.

    So, the start of a new Ice Age is marked by a magnetic pole reversal, increased volcanic activity, larger and more frequent earthquakes, tsunamis, colder winters, superstorms and the halting of the Chandler wobble.

    Unfortunately, all of those conditions are being met.

    POLE SHIFT PHENOMENA REPORTED by RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS

    January 23, 2011 crisisboom Leave a comment Go to comments
    ALEXEY N. DMITRIEV



    The Sun

    Let’s begin with the Sun. The Sun is the center of our Solar System, and all life that is on this Earth came from the Sun. If there were no Sun, we would not be alive. This is simply scientific fact. And so any changes that occur in or on the Sun will eventually affect every person alive. The solar activity during this last sunspot cycle was greater than anything ever seen before. Yet every astronomer that I talked to about this except one insisted that everything was “normal.” That one person, who worked at NASA, claimed that what was going on within the Sun was absolutely incredible. She also said that she was not “allowed” to talk about it. But she talked anyway, because she felt that the world needed to know, but at the same time she asked that I not publicly discuss what she had said. Sort of a Catch-22. So the photo at left is just a hint (click on it for a larger view). It’s a recent picture of the Sun from, I believe, the year 2000, showing multiple sunspots ringing the sun on the two latitudes of 19.48 north and south. Some of you will see the significance of this much energy’s being emitted at this particular location.

    So let’s look at the obvious question: What is normal? For scientists, the idea of “normal” is based on making a long-term study, then averaging the results. But in the case of the Sun, we have been studying it for only about a 100 years — and it was not until the last half of the 20th century that the study was done with instruments that could be considered especially accurate. And so, since the Sun is at least 4.5 billion years old, our 100- or 50-year study of it is equivalent to writing about the final one or two seconds in the life of a man or woman who lived for 100 years. Would you consider that biography reliable? We actually know nothing about the Sun that would enable us to say what is “normal.”

    We do know, however, that the Sun’s magnetic field has changed in the last 100 years. There’s a study by Dr. Mike Lockwood from Rutherford Appleton National Laboratories, in California. Dr. Lockwood has been investigating the Sun, and reports that since 1901 the overall magnetic field of the Sun has become stronger by 230 percent. No one knows what that truly means; it’s only an observation. And we do know that some of the sunspot activity in this last cycle was greater than anything ever recorded before in history. But we don’t know what that means, either.

    The Solar System

    Then comes the information out of Russia last month, from the Russian National Academy of Science in Siberia, where scientists have come to the conclusion that we have moved into an area of space that is different and has a much higher energy level.

    The Russians are reporting changes that are being recorded in space that have never been seen before. We cannot verify this information “for certain,” but we do know that the scientific body reporting it is real, and that a Dr. Dmitriev does head this body. Also, I have personally been before the Russian National Academy of Science, in Moscow. Speaking for the Academy in Siberia, Dr. Dmitriev says that the effects reported below have been observed (these are not quotes from Dr. Dmitriev, but extracts from his report).

    Changes to the Leading Edge of the Heliosphere

    The Sun itself has a magnetic field, and that magnetic field creates an “egg” around the Solar System that is known as the “heliosphere.” The heliosphere is shaped like a teardrop, with the long, thin end of the drop pointing away from the direction in which we’re traveling. The Russians have looked at the leading edge of this heliosphere, and they have observed glowing, excited plasma energy there. The Sun’s heliosphere used to be 10 astronomical units deep (an astronomical unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun, approximately 93 million miles) — 10 astronomical units was the “normal” thickness of this glowing energy that we used to see at the front end of the Solar System.

    Today, Dr. Dmitriev says that this glowing energy is now 100 astronomical units deep.

    The Russian National Academy of Sciences doesn’t give us a time-line, but the change from what was known and accepted to the way it is now represents a 1000 percent increase. And the Russians say that this change in the Sun is changing how the planets function and what kind of life they could support. They even report — but don’t explain — that the DNA spiral itself is altering. They feel that the continued expansion of the heliosphere will eventually take us into a new level of energy, that there will probably be a sudden expansion of the basic harmonic wavelengths that the Sun emits as it radiates energy out of itself, and that this increase in energy emission will change the basic nature of all matter in the Solar System. That’s a pretty bold statement, but it’s followed by data to back it up:

    The atmospheres of five of the planets and the Earth’s moon are changing
    .
    When the United States landed on the moon in 1969, it found no atmosphere. Since then, the earth’s moon is growing an atmosphere that wasn’t there before, made up of a compound that Dr. Dmitriev refers to as “Natrium.” This new atmosphere is now 6,000 kilometers deep.

    The earth’s atmosphere in the upper levels is forming HO gas that was not there before. It simply did not exist in the quantity that it does now. The Russians say it’s not related to global warming and it’s not related to CFCs or fluorocarbon emissions or anything like that. It’s just showing up.

    The Martian atmosphere is getting sizably thicker than it was before. The Mars Observer probe in 1997 lost one of its mirrors, which caused it to crash. This happened because the atmosphere was about twice as dense as NASA had calculated. Basically, the wind on that little mirror was so high that it blew it right off.

    The atmospheres of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also are changing, according to the Russians, but they didn’t explain.

    The brightness of the planets is changing.

    Venus is showing marked increases in its overall brightness.

    Jupiter’s energetic charge has risen so high that there is actually a visible tube of ionizing radiation that’s formed between the surface of Jupiter and its moon Io. You can actually see the luminous energy tube in photographs that have been taken recently.

    Uranus and Neptune also are becoming brighter.

    The magnetic fields are changing.

    Jupiter’s magnetic field has more than doubled.

    Uranus’s magnetic field is changing — no explanation.

    Neptune’s magnetic field is increasing.

    All three of these planets are becoming brighter, and their atmospheric qualities, say the Russians, are changing — but they do not explain what is meant by this.

    What’s truly amazing, since some people here on Earth have been expecting and predicting a pole shift for some time now, is that the Russians report that Uranus and Neptune appear to have had recent pole shifts. When the Voyager II space probe flew past Uranus and Neptune, the apparent north and south magnetic poles were sizably offset from where the rotational pole was in earlier recordings. In one case, it was 50 degrees off, and in the other case the difference was around 40 degrees.

    Earth Changes

    Let’s talk about Earth now.

    The Russians report two more facts: On Earth, the overall volcanic activity increased 500 percent from 1875 to 1975, while the earthquake activity has increased by 400 percent since 1973. Dr. Dmitriev says that comparing the years 1963 to 1993, the overall number of natural disasters — hurricanes, typhoons, mud slides, tidal waves, etc. — has increased by 410 percent.
    The Earth’s magnetic field has been decreasing. This decrease actually began 2000 years ago, but the rate of decrease suddenly became much more rapid 500 years ago. Now, in the last 20 years or so, the magnetic field has become erratic. Aeronautical maps of the world — which are used to allow airplanes to land using automatic pilot systems — have had to be revised worldwide in order for the automatic pilot systems to work. (This is very easy to check. Simply look at an aeronautical map prior to 1990 for any particular city airport, and then compare it to a present-day map.)

    Late last year, the Arctic ice cap on the exact spot of the North Pole completely melted for the first time in known history. Green Peace reported that, relative to the winter ice pattern, the cap had previously melted over 300 miles toward the pole, and that late last year both military and civilian ships were able to actually pass directly over the North Pole. It was water. Until now, as far as we know, there has never been a time where the ice was less than ten feet thick.

    In contrast, the South Pole has an ice cap that is about three miles deep, and yet huge pieces of ice continue to break off and melt.

    What Is Going On?

    Since 1900 we have gone from riding horses to landing on the moon. From sending letters by horseback to firing them off with instantaneous email, videophone, and satellites. On the negative side, we have gone from warring with primitive weapons to atomic bombs and bioterrorism. And perhaps even more significantly, in 1900 the Earth had 30 million species, species which took billions of years to create. Now, we have less than half that number — fewer than 15 million species. And this all happened in 100 years: a geological blink of an eye.

    If someone from another planet were watching the Earth, they would say it was dying.

    But now it seems something is going on that is beyond “business as usual.”

    In their report, the Russians say that these same kinds of phenomena were occurring when the dinosaurs became extinct — a time that marked a gigantic shift in the earth’s climate and weather patterns, and perhaps a pole shift, as well.

    Proof That The Earth's Pole Have Shifted

    With 2012 fast approaching, there has been a lot of speculation about the poles changing place or moving.

    While the possibility of a polar shift is quite possible, and appears to have happened in the past, another possibility needs to be considered. There is strong evidence that the surface of our planet -- the thin skin called the "crust" -- has suddenly shifted in the past. While the Earth remained in its normal axis, this shift caused entire continents and oceans to move, changing climates and altering entire ecosystems and weather patterns.

    We present the following information as proof of these past shifts and suggest that a similar event may be in store for Earth's immediate future.

    The Shifting Poles Theory

    The "Shifting Poles Theory" was introduced by History Professor, Charles H. Hapgood, whose fascination with geography and ancient maps led to his re-discovery of the Piri Re'is Map [right click to enlarge].



    This hand drawn Turkish naval map had been gathering dust since the early 1500's, its significance unrealized. On closer scrutiny, Hapgood observed evidence of spherical trigonometry and a detailed knowledge of global geography-- including the coastline of Antarctica at a remote time, when it was free of ice.

    The map had been drawn just a few years after Columbus visited the Americas. The cartographer, Admiral Piri Re'is, described his world map as having been drawn from "very old" reference maps. It appeared as if some ancient, forgotten civilization had risen to these capabilities, and then had disappeared. The identity of these ancient mariners begged to be discovered.

    The most obvious place to look for such an old, yet advanced, civilization was in the famous accounts of the lost continent, Atlantis, described in somewhat vague, but realistic, commentary by the Greek historian, Plato.

    Captain Jacques Cousteau concluded that Plato's Atlantis was in the Mediterranean, near Greece. His underwater explorations found evidence of extensive maritime trading and skilled boat building, along with some artifacts dated to thousands of years B.C. But no vast metropolis was found. Scholars called attention to the utopian descriptions of Plato, who hinted that Atlantis was in the "ocean" and "beyond the pillars of Hercules," known today as the Straight of Gibraltar. And so tradition eventually placed Atlantis somewhere on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. But where?

    More on the Peri Re'is Map Thought to be one of the earliest "world maps" to show the Americas, the map was originally used to bolster Turkish national pride. Early scholars suggested that it showed accurate latitudes of the South American and African coastlines - only 21 years after the voyages of Columbus! (And remember, Columbus did NOT discover North America - only the Caribbean!) Writing in Piri Re'is own hand described how he had made the map from a collection of ancient maps, supplemented by charts that were drawn by Columbus himself. This suggests that these ancient maps were also available to Columbus and could have been the basis of his daring expedition.

    A copy of the map was presented to a diplomat in the U.S. government, where it remained a curious artifact for years. The true mysteries of of this map were eventually discovered by professor Charles H. Hapgood and revealed to the scientific community in his book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings.

    During scrutiny of the map, Hapgood discovered a partial charting of Antarctica, made during a period when the coast was free of ice. This coastal structure, now covered again by ice, was subsequently verified by satellite radar scanning. Ice core samples of the coastline have fixed the last ice-free period to between 11,000 B.C. and 4,000 B.C.



    Our historical understanding of navigation includes a period of time before which it was impossible to determine a ships latitude (North to South position) in the Southern Hemisphere. This was because the known method involved sighting the angle of the only fixed star -- the North Star -- which cannot be seen in the Southern Hemisphere because of the curvature of the Earth.

    Despite this handicap, these ancient maps showed amazing details and accurate latitude placement of many known islands along the southern most coastlines of Antarctica!

    But this paradox of history was even more astounding.
    Hapgood has proved that the Piri Re'is map is plotted out in plane geometry, containing latitudes and longitudes at right angles in a traditional "grid"; yet it is obviously copied from an earlier map that was projected using spherical trigonometry! Not only did the early map makers know that the Earth was round, but they had knowledge of its true circumference to within 50 miles!

    (See similar map on right, based on spherical projection and used for air flights originating in Cairo to determine distances and fuel consumption. This map was generated using sherical trigonometry -- a science unknown to scholars until its discovery by the mathematician Hipparcus).

    Other Unusual Findings:


    • Scrutiny of the map shows that the makers knew the acurate circumference of the Earth to within 50 miles.
    • The "center" of the source map projected from coordinates in what is now Alexandria -- the center of culture and home of the world's oldest and largest library until its destruction by Christian invaders.
    • The coastline and island that are shown in Antarctica must have been navigated at some period prior to 4,000 B.C. when these areas were free of ice following the last Ice Age.



    The ocean floor reveals the answers


    With the invention of deep submersibles, the bottom of the North and South Atlantic have been mapped and their topography is now well known. The history of these oceanic floors is preserved in a succession of lava flows associated with the movement of tectonic plates. In other words, we're pretty sure that there is no sunken continent like Atlantis on these ocean floors.

    The same mapping has revealed recent changes in the habitable areas along the oceanic coastlines. Stone structures and a pyramid lie just off the coast of Bimany. Submerged forests have recently been found off the coastline of America's Northwest. Petroglyphs in Hawaii, carved into stone, are now covered by meters of the Pacific Ocean -- evidence of a lower ocean level. So while there is yet no sunken Atlantis, there does appear to be evidence of some dramatic changes to both the ocean levels and climates in our planet's recent history.

    The Thin Skin Under Our Feet



    Examining the ocean floor had many benefits to science. For geologists, it was the final piece of a puzzle that would explain how the Earth might be constructed. Their model started with an extremely hot core of dense iron and radioactive (heavy) elements. Encapsulating this hot and dense core, there is a thick liquid made of molten minerals called magma -- the same red material that oozes out of volcanoes as lava. A good part of our planet is made of this magma (called the mantle, which is thousands of kilometers thick). Surrounding this mantle is a thin crust of colder, solid minerals. This crust is like a thin skin that floats on the fluid magma. The skin is cracked and broken into several sections called "plates." We all live on this thin crust, on one of these plates.

    Scientists often make the analogy to a loose skin surrounding an orange.

    Some prefer the over-ripe avocado analogy because it has the hard central "seed" like the Earth's core.

    When atmospheric water condenses and forms the oceans, it collects like huge puddles on this thin skin, some which may be kilometers deep, depressing and compressing the crust. Areas that are free of this prodigious weight of water rise and form continents. Flaws in this delicate layer can result in volcanoes, and we now know that these can occur in the deepest oceans as well as on land.

    Floating Along...

    It was this "floating" of the Earth's crust that first sparked Hapgood's interest, and lead him to the ideas of Hugh Achincloss Brown. Brown had theorized that the entire earth could be made to be repositioned at a radically new angle on its axis of rotation. In other words, the Earth could change angle of its spin relative to the orbit around the Sun. Brown tried to use this argument to explain climatic changes, but his theory failed the test of mathematics.

    Brown's idea was not a new one. Some of the greatest geologists of the time, including J.C.Maxwell and Sir George Darwin (son of the famous Charles Darwin), considered this possibility, and decided that the stabilizing effect of the equatorial bulge was so great that no conceivable force originating within the Earth could make it shift on its axis, except for the collision with another planet. They, therefore, dismissed the idea of any shift of the poles as impossible and, in fact, not worth discussing. Their influence has been so pervasive that, to this day, no one has seriously considered such an hypothesis.

    Hapgood, too, accepted the assumption that only a planetary collision is capable of displacing the axis of rotation. But he had a new twist to this theory. He proposed that the shift of the poles resulted from a shift of the whole Earth's crust. The disturbances needed to slide the Earth's crust were far less than those needed to tilt the entire planet-- core and all.

    Based on the research of the Russian scientist V.V. Beloussov, he assumed that at a depth of a hundred miles or so, in the upper mantle, there is a layer of liquid rock (magma) which behaves as a lubricant or bearing, allowing the whole crust to shift when subjected to a displacing force. In Hapgood's opinion, this force is provided by the centrifugal momentum of ice caps eccentric to the poles.

    In other words, the weight of the ice on the poles is off-balancing the Earth's own daily rotation. Eventually, this imbalance gets to the point where a change occurs. According to Hapgood, the Earth keeps its axis of rotation unchanged, but the poles, and the whole Earth's surface, slide and change latitude. For a while, the Earth is balanced.

    Hapgood realized that the entire planet did not need to be repositioned around its axis to maintain its balance. Only the outer crust needed to move, just as the loosely peeled skin of an orange (or avocado) could be slid around the stationary inner fruit. This line of thinking was published in Earth's Shifting Crust, in collaboration with James H. Campbell, a mathematician-engineer. Hapgood then proposed looking for Atlantis in a place where no one had ever suspected -- Antarctica.

    Atlantis on the move

    Hapgoods reasoning went like this: He envisioned a catastrophic and dramatic move of the entire skin which allowed thick polar ice caps to melt in their new, warmer climate. Ice would again began to build up at the new poles, awaiting the next shift. In this scenario, Atlantis was repositioned to become a frozen and inhospitable continent, while the changing ocean levels reflected the amount of water locked up in the form of ice.

    Since Plato's Atlantis was in the center of "the great ocean," Hapgood summarized that Antarctica would have been a perfect candidate for the lost continent, especially if it had once been in a more Northern and moderate climate. Moreover, the legends of a catastrophic end to this advanced civilization could be descriptive of an abrupt continental slippage.

    If this is true, then we might well find our long lost mariners and mathematicians under the kilometers of ice that now cover the South Pole.

    Poles in the past

    A pole shift would displace the Earth's crust around the inner mantle, resulting in crustal rocks being exposed to magnetic fields of a different direction. Hapgood demonstrated his theory by documenting three Earth crust displacements in the last 100,000 years.



    Looking down on the current North Pole, we can identify at least 3 previous positions of the pole according to Hapgood. These are shown roughly by the numbered red dots in the map on the right.

    Position #1: 63 degrees N, 135 degrees W. From the Yukon area of North America at about 80,000 B.P.(before present era) and moving east by 75,000 B.P to the Greenland Sea.

    Position #2: 72 degrees N, 10 degrees E. From the Greenland Sea, starting at about 55,000 B.P. and then moving south-west by 50,000 B.P. towards what is now Hudson Bay.

    Position #3: 60 degrees N, 73 degrees W. From the Hudson Bay area at about 17,000 B.P. and moving north to its present location by about 12,000 B.P.

    Position #4: The current position.

    The evidence proving that the poles where in different positions during the Pleistocene era is quite impressive, and this explains why Hapgood's theory was approved by scientists such as Einstein and K.F. Mather. But his theory meets with so many difficulties that it becomes highly controversial. Above all, it seems to conflict with widely accepted theories, such as the drift of the continents. Hapgood, while credited with correctly plotting the positions of past polar coordinates, was forced to adhere to a much slower transition of the poles, accepting the paradigm of continental drift and plate tectonics to maintain the support of the scientific community. Ironically, one of the most recent objections to Hapgood's theory is the rapidity of climate changes that occurred in the Pleistocene period. According to Hapgood's revised theory, it took the North Pole at least two thousand years to move from its previous position to the present. The evidence we now have, however, definitely points to much faster climatic changes.
    It was Hapgood himself who first underscored the enormous amount of evidence proving the high speed at which the shift of the poles appears to have happened; speed which the mechanism of continental drift is unable to explain.
    The only way to completely and coherently explain what took place at the end of Pleistocene era appears to be that of admitting the possibility of a shift of the poles of the same magnitude Hapgood hypothesizes, but in a much shorter time: not more than a few days! This possibility is openly refused, only because no convincing explanation has been forwarded so far. It would, however, support the abrupt disaster that befell Atlantis -- if it is under Antarctica's polar ice cap. With no hard data to explain this extremely abrupt disturbance in geography, Hapgood continued aligned with the theory of a gradual shift. In the forward to a book on the subject, Hapgood wrote:
    "Polar wandering is based on the idea that the outer shell of the earth shifts about from time to time, moving some continents toward and other continents away from the poles. Continental drift is based on the idea that the continents move individually... A few writers have suggested that perhaps continental drift causes polar wandering. This book advances the notion that polar wandering is primary and causes the displacement of continents.... This book will present evidence that the last shift of the earth's crust (the lithosphere) took place in recent time, at the close of the last ice age, and that it was the cause of the improvement in climate." --(The Path of the Pole by Chilton.)
    New Evidence -- Enter STONEHENGE!
    Thomas O. Mills has written extensively on the Hopi culture -- the oldest Native American tribe. The Hopi are extremely private people who do not usually share their cultural secrets with outsiders. Mills has been fortunate to live with the Hopi and has come to appreciate their depth of knowledge of nature. He is particularly fascinated by their understanding of celestial alignments.
    In his book, Stonehenge: If This Were East, Mills shows what he calls the Hopi Truth Wheel. This is a compass like circle that, when aligned to the North Pole, reveals the direction of the Sun and certain significant stars for the Equinox and Summer and Winter Solstice. Mills examined the possibility that Stonehenge might have utilized this same Truth Wheel in its construction. His results were quite remarkable.

    The current alignment of Stonehenge makes no sense as to important alignments thought to be useful to the ancients who made it. This is why there has been great controversy and argument over the original purpose of the placement of the stones. But when Mills placed his "wheel of truth" over Stonehenge he immediately noticed that the stones were in perfect alignment. There was only one problem -- they didn't align with the North Pole.



    Mills proposed that Stonehenge would have been the perfect "wheel of truth" if only the North Pole were not where it is now. He sent his ideas to viewzone's editor, Gary Vey, who decided to use google earth to see where the "perfect" North Pole would have to be. The results [below] show that the exact alignment of this North Pole is where Hapgood predicted it to be at about 11,000 BC! This suggests a much greater antiquity for Stonehenge than is currently estimated.


    The Avenue of the Dead

    Another anomaly that has perplexed archaeologists has to do with the ancient pyramid site called Teotihuacan, also known as The Avenue of the Dead. It consists of several step pyramids situated along a straight corridor. But the corridor (or avenue) doesn't align with anything. It is in the northern direction but not exactly North. For a civilization that was known for its precision and calulating, this seems very odd.


    Teotihuacan is an enormous archaeological site in the Basin of Mexico, containing some of the largest pyramidal structures built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramidal structures, Teotihuacan is also known for its large residential complexes, the Avenue of the Dead, and numerous colorful, well-preserved murals.
    The early history of Teotihuacan is quite mysterious, and the origin of its founders is debated. For many years, archaeologists believed it was built by the Toltec. This belief was based on colonial period texts, such as the Florentine Codex, which attributed the site to the Toltecs. However, the Nahuatl word "Toltec" generally means "craftsman of the highest level" and may not always refer to the Toltec civilization centered at Tula, Hidalgo. Since Toltec civilization flourished centuries after Teotihuacan, the people could not have been the city's founders.
    Using google earth again, we extended a line along the "avenue" and found that it did align with the North Pole as it existed 12,000 to 17,000 years ago.


    Does this suggest that the site is much older than we currently estimate? I believe it does. The geographical layout of Teotihuacan is aligned to 15.26º east of North. One theory says this is due to the fact that the sun rose at that same angle during the same summer day each year. Settlers used the alignment to calibrate their sense of time or as a marker for planting crops or performing certain rituals. Another theory is that there are numerous ancient sites in Mesoamerica that seem to be oriented with the tallest mountain in their given area. But perhaps the site was constructed over the ruins of a much older, ancient city.

    Adams calendar -- how old?


    Viewzone recently ran a story on an alleged 200,000 year old settlement that was recently discovered in South Africa (see Adam's Calendar). Aside from thousands of foundations and walled streets and paths, an astronomical stone calendar was found, almost completely intact, on the top of a mountain just above the old settlement.
    The positioning of the stones is quite amazing and shows alignment with Mill's "wheel of truth." There are stoned to calculate the equinox and solstice. But once again the North and South stones do not align perfectly with the current directions.


    Using google earth we extended a line through the South and North stone markers and saw it intersect with the North Pole as it would have been positioned about 75,000 years ago. This is the earliest date for which we have geomagnetic evidence of a magnetic pole. While we can only speculate that even earlier polar positions existed we can use this as evidence that the Adams Calendar site is at least this old.

    Baalbek

    The history settlement in the area of Baalbek dates back approximately 9000 years, with almost continual settlement of the tell under the Temple of Jupiter. The base of the famous Temple of Jupiter is made of huge stones that weigh as much as 300 tons! How they were carved and moved in to place remains a mystery.

    In his books on ancient history, Zecharia Sitchin proposed that the site was much older than 9000 years and suggested it might have been used by extraterrestrials as a base for their space vehicles. We tested his hypothesis by locating the East alignment for the temples foundation and ten extended a line North.


    We can see that the North line intersects perfectly with the North Pole as is calculated to be from about 50,000 years ago to about 17,000 BCE. This is the only alignment of the foundation that makes any sense.

    Tiahuanaco, Bolivia

    Ask most people who are the oldest civilization or where the oldest civilization lived and you'll here answers like Mesopotamia (Iraq), Egypt or Iran. While these cultures can be traced back to 4000 B.C., the mysterious ruins of Tiahuanaco, in Bolivia, are thought to be 14,000 years old!


    We tested this theory by aligning the famous Sun Gate and the surrounding temple to face the rising sun -- exactly East. Then we traced the North line at 360 degrees to, where else, the present North Pole. This means that the temple and the Sun Gate were aligned sometime between 12,000 BCE and the present.

    Angkor Wat, Cambodia

    Angkor Wat (or Angkor Vat) is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation -- first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.

    Suryavarman is said to have selected the site based on some extremely ancient artifacts that were found there. So, once again we looked for the orientation of the foundations to see which position of North was used.



    Surprisingly, there are two different orientations found at the site. One is dead-on 360 degrees -- obviously the North Pole of today. The other is off by a few degrees (as seen in the photo above) and aligns with the position of the North Pole for the period 17,000 to 12,000 BCE.

    There is one other anomaly worth mentioning.

    The distance from the North Pole to the Equator is about 6215 miles. This is exactly the distance for Angkor Wat to the second pole position located in Alaska. And if a line of 6215 miles is extended from this second position it intersects with the Nazca Lines in Peru, Easter Island, Persepolis, Petra, Anatom Island, the Great Pyramid, and Mohenjodaro in Pakistan. This means that all of these sacred sites were once on the Equator when the North Pole was in the Second Position (50,000 years ago!). Coincidence?

    The Magnetic Poles are moving again!

    The North polar axis is different from the magnetic North that a compass points to. This discrepancy is often used to support the Shifting Pole theory because it shows that the core, responsible for creating the magnetic field, is not aligned with the rotational axis of the planet. Over time, the two should be more or less identical.

    If we have had crustal shift in the past, we ought to see the magnetic North moving toward the North axis. In fact, this is exactly what we do see.


    The magnetic north pole had moved little from the time scientists first located it in 1831. Then in 1904, the pole began shifting northeastward at a steady pace of about 9 miles (15 kilometers) a year.

    In 1989 it sped up again, and in 2007 scientists confirmed that the pole is now galloping toward Siberia at 34 to 37 miles (55 to 60 kilometers) a year! Is this fast? To put it in perspective, the last shift from Position #3 (in the Northeast shore of Hudson Bay) to the present Position #4 (the current North Pole) covered just 2000 miles. Traditional scientists like to imagine that this took thousands of years to happen. Remember, Hapgood believed this happened suddenly. At the current rate at which the poles are moving, this same distance would take just 55 years!

    Food for thought

    Second super-fast flip of Earth's poles found -- reported in www.newscientist.com:
    SOME 16 million years ago, north became south in a matter of years. Such fast flips are impossible, according to models of the Earth's core, but this is now the second time that evidence has been found.

    The magnetic poles swap every 300,000 years, a process that normally takes up to 5000 years. In 1995 an ancient lava flow with an unusual magnetic pattern was discovered in Oregon. It suggested that the field at the time was moving by 6 degrees a day - at least 10,000 times faster than usual. "Not many people believed it," says Scott Bogue of Occidental College in Los Angeles.

    Now Bogue and his colleague Jonathan Glen of the United States Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California, say they have found a second example in Nevada. The lava rock suggests that in one year, Earth's magnetic field shifted by 53 degrees (Geophysical Research Letters, DOI: 10.1029/2010GL044286). At that rate, a full flip would take less than four years, but there could be another interpretation. "It may have been a burst of rapid acceleration that punctuated the steady movement of the field," says Bogue.

    Peter Olson of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, remains sceptical and points out that the effects could have been local rather than global.

    Earth is overdue for a reversal, and rapid shifts would cause widespread chaos - for navigation and migratory birds for instance.

    Default Re: Magnetic polar shifts causing massive global superstorms

    While the possibility of a polar shift is quite possible, and appears to have happened in the past, another possibility needs to be considered. There is strong evidence that the surface of our planet -- the thin skin called the "crust" -- has suddenly shifted in the past. While the Earth remained in its normal axis, this shift caused entire continents and oceans to move, changing climates and altering entire ecosystems and weather patterns.
    This is inherently wrong.

    1) There are plate tectonics at play here, but this is NOT what causes a "pole shift".

    2) Continential plates move SLOWLY, very, very slowly and take decades to move enough to cause quakes. Millions of years to make continents connect.

    3) The crust has nothing to do with the magnetic field, rather a large mass of molten steel does.

    This is all a load of hype and nonsense, pseudo-science.

    The entire article is based on this incorrect premise and thus, completely, totally wrong.

    The north pole has always been on the same spot, the Earth's axis.

    The magnetic pole has changed not once, but dozens of times.

    In reality, the poles change because of the sun, and due most likely (and this is indeed supposition on my part right now) based on CMEs hitting Earth and remagnetizing the planet's field.

    Changes will happen, but chances of them happening are slim - and if they do occur they will happen instantly (over a few days time, which is instant on the astonomical scale of time).

    The change will not be gradual and will be immediately recongnized by navigators, compasses and migratory critters.
    Libertatem Prius!
