Ok, people, I seriously dont understand how so many people believe that Australia and New Zealand are in different places to what they used to be. For
me, there are several reasons, some personal, why this "theory" is incorrect
I flew to New Zealand from Brisbane Airport in 2004. Judging by the fact that we flew out over the ocean, it can be determined that we were flying
east. Now, if people know anything about the geography of Australia, if New Zealand were to the west of us, I would have been flying over land.
I would like to see the reaction of our world war 2 veterans (and the Americans that fought to our north), when you guys tried to tell them this. All
maps around that time clearly show Australia to the west
of New Zealand. Check out battle of the Coral Sea (which has faded into obscurity for
most yanks and brits)
Im not sure how many of you are familiar with continental drift and/or Pangae, but if you are, you will notice that New Zealand fits snuggly into the
coast of Australia, rather than the west. If New Zealand were to the North East of us, at any point, it wouldve fit nicely in with
Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India, again not possible.
For you people unfamiliar with the above concepts
How many of you not
from Australia, can accurately say you are aces at geography? It seems that many americans (sorry to pick on yanks, but the
majority of you are, although there are lots of other nationalities mixed in too) couldnt even point out Baghdad on a map, or name the capital of
Australia, let alone, pin point subtle differences in the distance between us and Papua New Guinea, or the location of New Zealand.
Early images of the Earth from space, clearly show New Zealand in its rightful place, to the east of us. US astronaut John Glenn, clearly proved this
on two missions, one in 1962 and another in 1968. If anyone can show me different images then by all means disprove this.
The climate of New Zealand does not reflect the type of climate found to the North East of Australia....its not even close. If it were there, the
mountains would not be covered in snow, there would be no glaciers, their forests would be tropical (including their hundred year old trees), rather
than temperate, the soil compositon would not be the same....and worst of all, the Kiwi Bird, Moa, Kakapo and the many seals that migrate to the
islands would simply not exist!!
(Obviously seals swim to NZ,from colder water, but they wouldnt be swimming an extra 4000km to the tropics to get there, unless seals are part of the
Anyone that thinks that New Zealand and Australia have ever been in different places, are either not from this region, and have never visisted our
great countries and, also need to seriously brush up on basic geography, and their knowledge of continentla drift and plate tectonics.
The problem is none of you are willing to do this, you just assume you know otherwise. And thanks to the power of suggestiveness and maybe even a
little paranoia or gullibility, many foreigners have been sucked into believing this farce.
I urge all New Zealanders and Australians to get behind me on this, we know where we are, and where we have always been!!!! Its about time the rest of
the world learnt a little something about geography of the Australasia and South east Asia....
Who's with me?
And if you're against, show me evidence which outweigghs my points, because as of yet, its seems to be all a case of assumption and self
