There you go again listening to the MSM, but only when you think it backs up what you want it to. You should know better.
You didn't read what I wrote. You didn't read what I quoted.
The Earth's rotational axis did not shift, the Earths' tilt did not change. The Earths' figure axis shifted a tiny amount. So tiny that it cannot be measured. It is a theoretical calculation. The figure axis is not the same thing as the rotational axis.

The planet has been dealing with earthquakes since it's creation. It's still here. We're still fine. There have been billions of earthquakes and while they may have a slight impact, it's not something to get all freaked out about. We've gone through far greater geological shifts in the past and we're still spinning.
Also, why would you believe a woman that can barely read. Hurr Durr 'geophysics have declared'.
Also, if there were significant changes don't you think the thousands of armchair astronomers, or at least one scientist would say something?

Plus, it's my basic modern day understanding the Earth has flipped magnetically and physically many times. And it's been a long time since the last time..
Every day people are waking up. And every day people are getting more confused.

"Earth's rotation changes all the time as a result of not only earthquakes, but also the much larger effects of changes in atmospheric winds and oceanic currents," he said. "Over the course of a year, the length of the day increases and decreases by about a millisecond, or about 550 times larger than the change caused by the Japanese earthquake. The position of Earth's figure axis also changes all the time, by about 1 meter (3.3 feet) over the course of a year, or about six times more than the change that should have been caused by the Japan quake."

Gross said the changes in Earth's rotation and figure axis caused by earthquakes should not have any impacts on our daily lives. "These changes in Earth's rotation are perfectly natural and happen all the time," he said. "People shouldn't worry about them."
