The mammoths will not help you with pole shifting. Many have said that because they had food in their mouths or stomach that they must have been
"quick" or "flash" frozen. The problem with that idea is that even if the earth were to quickly shift on it's poles and place said poor mammoth
square in the middle of the physical north or south pole, would not result in a "quick" or "flash" frozen mammoth. Scientist have investigated
this and found that it's not possible to "quick" or "flash" freeze meat the size of a mammoth. Here is a thread on it here on ATS, posted back in
From the thread:
To get to the bottom of the mystery scientists consulted experts in the deep freeze butchery industry. However instead of clearing things up they
made them much more troublesome. Basically they said it was not possible to deep freeze a creature the size of a mammoth in the relative moderate
temps of the arctic. Basically if meat is frozen slowly at freezing temp crystals form in the cells of the flesh bursting the cells and dehydrating
the meat. The butchers concluded no such process could have produced the deep frozen mammoth meat. To satisfactorily freeze a side of beef takes 30
minutes at -40 degrees Fahrenheit. To deep freeze a huge living warm blooded mammoth, insulated in thick fur, they estimated that temperatures below
-150 degrees would be required. Temperatures so low have never been recorded in nature, not even in the artic.
If you want to "quick" or "flash" freeze a mammoth, you're going to have to do one of two things:
Drop it into a vat of liquid gases such as liquid nitrogen.
You're going to have to come up with some way for the air temps to suddenly drop to below -150 deg ( ala "Day After Tomorrow").
A physical pole shift won't do that I'm afraid. The air will move with the crust. Temps are controlled by the air and the surface (in this case
land), and both will need to loose that heat. Loosing that heat takes time. Quite a bit of time. So I'm sorry. Even a pole shift will not flash
freeze a mammoth.
What it could do, if it was rapid enough is: cause mile high tsunamis, and even though the air will move with the crust, it won't move as fast, so
there will be a relative wind. How fast? Not sure, but I think it will exceed hurricane force winds, and may even exceed F5 tornado wind speeds (over
The Zodiac: very big face palm here
. I'm sorry but your article you linked to is another fine example of someone reading a source, and
actually NOT understanding what they are reading......:rolling my eyes:
Fist, here is a link about the Zodiac. Take a good, long read about it....and see how they explain things like:
Equatorial Coordinate System
(which btw, does not mean things are sitting at the equator
), Tropical Zodiac
and Ecliptic Coordinate System
Last from your post:
A shift in “geographic” poles is another commonly discussed concept throughout the scientific world. This is the theory that an internal or
external force acts upon Earth to reposition the arctic poles anywhere from their current position by a few degree up to 180 degrees
No, I'm afraid that is not what is "commonly" discussed.
What is "commonly" discussed is True Polar Wander
You can even find it mentioned in this wiki article on: Pole Shift
True polar wander, or the motion of the solid Earth with respect to a fixed spin axis that causes the spin axis to lie over a new geographic
position, does occur. This is because of changes in mass distribution throughout the Earth that modify its moment of inertia tensor. The Earth
consistently readjusts its orientation with respect to its spin axis such that its spin axis is parallel to the axis about which it has its greatest
moment of inertia. This readjustment is very slow. In 2001, historical evidence for true polar wander was found in paleomagnetic data from granitic
rocks from across North America. The data from these rocks conflict with the hypothesis of a cataclysmic true polar wander event. This evidence
indicated that the geographical poles have not deviated by more than about 5° over the last 130 million years. More rapid past possible
occurrences of true polar wander have been measured: from 790 to 810 million years ago, true polar wander of approximately 55° may have occurred
