Now Ive scoured the net to find reputable sources depicting its oribt, and have none, except the biblical and historical documentations from egypt, hebrew, and chinese who all log terrible weather shifts, and a fiery ball in the sky. I personally am convinced that the poles shifted then. with the mammoth corpses in siberia perfectly preserved 3600 yrs ago, frozen on the spot, and the canadian pine forest frozen on the spot, with no winter rings reflecting a cold season. But you will have to do your own searching to convince yourselves yea, or nay.

If anyone has heard of anything similar to that please reply because I want to who made that up.

Magnetic poles reversing is an internal planetary thing... magnetic field strength has already dropped 35%...

It is not only the direction but also the strength of this magnetic field that is a concern. In the time of dinosaurs, at an estimated 2.5 gauss, it was eighty percent stronger than it is now.
In the past century there has been a further decline of earth's magnetic field by another five percent down to only 0.5 gauss. This has led Dr. Dean Bonlie to identify a "magnetic deficiency syndrome" resulting from the biological stress caused by the weakening of this "energy base" for life.
The disorderly-flip theory is supported by evidence from geology that in past reversals the decline was not total. Lava flows that solidified at Steen's Mountain during a lengthy reversal process show that the magnetic poles wandered across the equator three times. Though strength of the field was reduced to about 20% of maximum, there is no record that it fell to zero gauss during that transitional period. (5)
