Stellarium is based on known and verified data. It accurately predicts the positions of the stars and planets. Accurately enough for the purposes I
use it for.
Earth's orbit was not altered by an earthquake, an earthquake cannot affect the orbit. It was calculated that the displacement of mass may have
altered the tilt of the axis by an amount too slight to be measured, too slight to affect the location of the stars.
The magnetic poles have always been shifting but there is no reason for that to affect the skies.
Yes, water moves around. So does air. This does have very slight effects but over time, the effects (including those of large earthquakes) will tend
to balance out, not accumulate. Large earthquakes happen in different locations and move mass in different ways. Water tends to level itself out. Air
tends to evenly distribute itself.
Yes, the continents do move and that does result in some real changes but those changes occur over millions of years. We aren't talking about that
sort of time span.
Yes, a very large object passing through the Solar System would dramatically affect the orbits of all of the planets. But there is no such thing
happening nor has there been for a very very long time. Apparently there is no such object.
It seems that you're making the same point as I am. There is no "alignment" to be expected on 12/21/12. Of course, your reasons are
different from mine. I say it's because we know what will happen. You say it's because we don't know.
Or are you saying that the Maya somehow knew about all those variables you're talking about? That they somehow took them into account and that they
predicted some sort of different sort of alignment on 12/21/12.
