Theories have been put forth over the past decades claiming that areas of the Earth that had once been the polar ice caps changed their position
and became warmer areas. The ice caps suddenly melted before new ones refroze, and a great flood occurred.
The current ice caps formed at the new cold, pole positions. Some continents and seas that had been in temperate latitudes with mild climates suddenly
got very cold, very fast, according to these kinds of views.
Frozen animals unearthed from under snow and ice have been found with tropical plants in their stomachs.
Variations on pole shift theories include speculation that as Earth revolves in its orbit around the sun, year after year, century after century, it
slightly changes its angle along the way. It tilts on its axis a little bit more and more, and this is simply a natural process.
The natural pole shift theory includes views that Earth periodically gets to a point when this tilt becomes so heavy that momentum suddenly shifts the
outer crust of the Earth off its previous axis. The outer crust slides and shifts over the fluid molten layer beneath.
But, instead of happening over hundreds of millions of years, it happens suddenly and dramatically over a period of days, weeks and months, some
In addition, this natural shift happens every so many thousands of years, not millions, according to these views.
And when this occurs, weather and climate for most areas of the planet suddenly change, the old poles melt and new areas are quickly frozen over.
Theories of these periodic crustal shifts include the factors of very significant earthquakes, volcanic activity and tsunamis that would accompany
such sudden movement of the Earth’s crust.
In fact, such a movement of the crust would be so violent that impact on human civilization as we know it would be extreme.
Intensely violent earthquakes would affect virtually the whole planet. Volcanic gas, ash and debris would fill the atmosphere. Huge tsunamis would
crash into coastlines around the world.
The question however is, do these changes start to affect nature on some elemental level, before they take place. Eg. Just like how it's said that
dogs and cats head for the hills before an earthquake.
Does nature get affected on an elemental level before this sort of thing happens? Is this why the frogs are going missing?
Is this why birds are showing up in weird places.
Is this why the Inuit are seeing the sun at earler periods, I think it was?
Is that why my some cities have been much milder the last few years, where January feels like early March? Very little snow or winter?
Are there other changes happening that are a part of this that we are just not collectivly realising?
The other thing is, are our governments already aware that this is going to happen and not telling us? I mean there is little that could be done, it
would just cause an unncessacary panic, and letting us think that the warming of the earth is man made is so much easier.
Some pole shift theorists allege that historical tales about descriptions of the Earth shaking, the sudden movement of the stars in the sky,
dramatic flooding and the darkening of the skies all match a long-ago crustal shift.
There is so much scitific evidence out there to show that this has happened in past times, and not too distant past times at that. I often wonder why
more is not being done to preserve something after this happens.
And, the time frame for this natural and periodic change in the planet’s crust is sometimes predicted to be in the early twenty-first century.
The year 2012 is put forth by some.
This is based on the fact that the Mayan calander ends that year. I think it might be worth a look at. 10 years ago or so, when I looked at this
theory, I didn't think the earth was ripe for it, but lately I am not so sure.
Some researchers have looked at different archeological and anthropological clues around the world. These clues may indicate that advanced human
cultures developed long before the time frames for the origins of human civilization on Earth that we currently believe.
These unknown, ancient cultures may have been virtually destroyed by the pole shift of their time, and only fragments of and clues about their
existence remain, according to some theories.
Eg. Atlantis which is shown on some of the ancient maps that were found, and that were more accurate than many of the maps that they had at the
One of the most interesting set of circumstances is in regard to the continent we call Antarctica, now under the ice cap at the South Pole.
Ancient maps have been found that show details of the coastline and geography of Antarctica.
The mystery in these maps is that the coastline and geographic details of Antarctica were unknown until ice-penetrating radar was used by the U.S.
military to map the coastline in the second half of the twentieth century.
As the theory goes, ancient mariners must have mapped the coastline in detail at a time when it was obviously free of the ice that now covers it. This
indicates that the large continent of Antarctica was at one time in a more temperate latitude, then shifted to the South Pole.
It also indicates it was like this in more recent times. What will be left of our society if this happens? We won't even have the paramids to show
how advanced we had become.
Some speculate that the magnetic pull of alignments of other planets and forces in our solar system could contribute to tipping the balance of
Earth’s crust off of the current axis.
These kinds of views give a whole new meaning to the term “climate change.” According to many indications and apparently valid research, we will
be experiencing significant weather and climate changes in the coming years.
There may be “global warming” and/or there may be significant cooling in some parts of the world.
Torrential rains in some regions and extreme drought in others may also be in our future.
If we paid a bit more attention to this theory, we could try to predict which places would have the droughts and really bad weather and try to prepare
those populations. If we can predict where these changes will be happening.
I think it's great to see this discussion here on ATS. What I would love to see is any research or recent happenings added to this thread as they
