I was shocked today to find a video by “Diamond” at Magnetic Reversal News on Ken White’s World in Peril – which concludes that crustal displacements are “impossible.” That pole shifts “don’t happen.” That Charles Hapgood (whom Einstein supported) and Chan Thomas had “crazy theories.” Evidence that the Svalbard Islands were once on the equator, and that mammoths had been flash frozen quite suddenly and remained so for at least 10,000 years… all the evidence, he says, is explained not by periodic pole shifts every 12-13,000 years, but by regularly recurring comet impacts.
While I’m glad to see him acknowledge that there have been “ice ages” in Africa and India and other areas all over the world, and sudden catastrophes killing and freezing tens of millions of animals at a time – I’m dumbfounded to hear him dismiss the pole shift/crustal displacement theory completely in favor of regularly recurring comet impacts. Because the evidence for countless former equators criss-crossing the world (including through Antarctica and the Arctic) and “ice ages” (polar ice caps) in Africa, India, and South America can NOT be explained by comet impacts. I understand he sees the traces of extraterrestrial materials being deposited and, ignoring the solar micronova evidence presented by Thomas Gold, Robert Schoch, and Ben Davidson – he prefers to assume that comets are the source of the cosmic elements and isotopes.
But such impacts are random in their specific timing. Yet “Diamond” says the North American Ice Sheet has been struck repeatedly by comet impacts every 10-12,000 years; that “there can be no crustal slip” and that he is “debunking the myth that the earth’s crust shifts, because it doesn’t. Now there are cosmic catastrophes that are recurring during the great year, but none of these have to do with crustal slip.”
Is it more reasonable to assume someone is simply looking at different evidence than I am? Or has been paid to change their tune? Should we just acknowledge that someone who had previously seemed to understand the evidence on pole shifts no longer does?
