WOW... Ok folks.. I think a few too many coocoo flew over a few too many...
Where to start with the horrible misinformation and poorly drawn conclusions:
Let's start with physical pole shift shall we, since this is clearly the MOST unfounded of the lot. Any evidence that has been pointed to, to
support it can be just as easily explained by such phenomena as techtonic shifts (not full planet flipping it's rotational axis), meteor strikes and
subsequent deposits, massive volcanic eruptions and their subsequent deposits, etc., etc., etc.
Second on my list is this ludacris planetary alignment garbage. I'm not even going to explain why this is wrong since there are litterally thousands
of good websites, with solid PHYSICS based explanations on how the forces of the planets are only a tiny fraction of the force exerted on the planet
by the MOON on a regular basis (it's all related to distance folks), just use google, until you overwhelm your desire to stick to a couple of pieces
of bad math, by seeing thousands of good pieces of math.
The earth already wobbles around it's axis (mistakenly referred to here as poles, several times, use the two terms and it simplifies a lot of
discussions). It's not fixed on some magical pole. It's a balance of several forces (rotational inertia, forward speed through space, balanced by
the pull of the Sun).
Now why it changed is as follows: The earth actually got every so slightly smaller as a result of that quake, more dense, and all this inertial mass
got moved around and slightly affected the wobbel. It also sped the rotation of the earth slightly (I heard 3 microseconds a year, or 3 millionths of
a second. Unconfirmed and likely and confirmable by the way.)
So, sorry for crappy spelling, it's late, but I couldn't read this thread any longer. I had stayed away because I knew this thread would be here
when I logged in... (avoided it for almost a week LOL)
