1. Charting Imaginary Worlds: Pole Shifts, Ice Sheets, and Ancient Sea Kings [Journals] [Aeon]
... this paper, I aim to examine a little book that has probably influenced more people than Worlds in Collision- Charles Hapgood's Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Ice cores or old maps- which to believe? Can we learn something about Earth's past from the study of ice cores? Charles Ginenthal, for one, has been convinced by Hapgood that Greenland was ice-free only a few thousand years ago. [1 ] Ginenthal, of course, is not the only catastrophist to give Hapgood's book his unqualified endorsement. Ian Johnson reviewed it enthusiastically for AEON, [2 ] while Alasdair Beal praised it to the S.I .S . [3 ] All three have accepted ...
2. Imaginary Worlds: The Debate Heats Up [Journals] [Aeon]
... Comyns Beaumont and even King Arthur. When Mewhinney eventually does turn his attention to the maps, he chooses an interesting selection to discuss: Of the 38 maps featured in Hapgood's book, Mewhinney mentions only 3, and then introduces 10 other maps which are not in Hapgood's book at all. Extraordinarily, he then goes on to severely criticise Hapgood for selection of data: "Hapgood had hundreds of maps to choose from. Not only does he exercise selection over what maps to use, but over which features to attend to and which to ignore." Mewhinney then criticises Hapgood for misrepresenting the views of others. The case he presents is rather flimsy, but then he goes ...
3. Old World Maps -- A Response to Charles Ginenthal [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Sense About Ancient Maps" (1 ) in Volume I, Number 2. In his article, he refers to "The Zeno Maps of the North," published in 1558, the Piri Re'is map compiled in 1513, and the Oronteus Finaeus map published in 1532. He also gives the analysis of the Piri Re'is map by Charles Hapgood in his Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Zeno's maps show an unglaciated Greenland and the Piri Re'is map shows an unglaciated Antarctica. Hapgood subtitled his book "Evidence of Advanced Civilization in the Ice Age" and Ginenthal says that Antarctica was ice-free in historical times. The United States Air Force and Navy mapping services agreed that, if ...
4. Pole-Shift [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:1 (Jan 1986) Home | Issue Contents Pole-Shift Richard W. Noone During the International Geophysical Year (1958), Charles H. Hapgood published a book entitled Earth's Shifting Crust that was highly praised by Harvard geology professor Kirtley F. Mather and Albert Einstein. It set forth the idea that a great many problems which have remained unsolved in the history of the earth could be explained by the assumption that the earth's outer shell has slipped over the interior, thus changing the positions of the poles relative to the earth's surface. In the last two and a half decades anenormous amount of new data has reinforced this view. In ...
5. 094book.htm [Journals] [Aeon]
... Charles H. Hapgood, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings/TITLE From: Aeon III:2 (May 1993) Home | Issue Contents BOOK REVIEWS: Charles H. Hapgood, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (Chilton Books, New York), 1966. A Review by Ian C. Johnson Charles H. Hapgood, a professor of the history of science at Keene State College in New Hampshire, acknowledged that his book was inspired by Captain Arlington H. Mallery, who was the first to suggest that the Piri Re'is map of 1513 showed a part of Antarctica. Mallery also made the original suggestion that the first map of the Antarctic coast "must have ...
6. How Old is Greenland's Ice Cap? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... depth of 3000 metres through the Greenland ice cap should yield samples of the oldest ice in the world', with an estimated age of 300,000 years. If this is true, it means that the ice cap survived all the climatic upheavals of the ice age and before and also, if Velikovsky (Earth in Upheaval), Hapgood (The Path of The Pole) and Cook (SIS Review, 1991) are to be believed, the associated major geographical changes. If the scientists are right, then those who believe that the Earth has suffered major upheavals in its recent history should pause to consider the significance of these new findings. After all, if Greenland ...
7. Sean Mewhinney's Missing Subglacial Topography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... To paraphrase his methodology from his own article, page 26, "And so I came to appreciate just how much mental effort Mewhinney must have expended in ignoring evidence that was right under his nose when it contradicted his convoluted hypotheses." On page 25 he refers to me thus, "Charles Ginenthal, for one has been convinced by Hapgood that Greenland was ice-free only a few thousand years ago Ginenthal, of course is not the only catastrophist to give Hapgood's book his unqualified endorsement". The footnote Mewhinney presented at the bottom of page 25 "C . Ginenthal, Ice Core Evidence', The Velikovskian, II:4 (1994), pp. 53 ff" ...
8. Imaginary Worlds [Journals] [Aeon]
... maps; and between different parts of the Piri Re'is map. It didn't work the way Mewhinney says except in so very general a way as to make any comparison worthless. What I did find was a correspondence between the Piri Re'is map and the coastline that it represents, based on a Cairo-centered equidistant projection. Mewhinney also states: "Hapgood had hundreds of old maps to choose from. Not only does he exercise selection over what maps to use, but over which features to attend to, and which to ignore."  This statement is misleading. Hapgood "used" many maps in his book. Some were simply utilized to illustrate the poorer old maps ...
9. Mapping Bombastic Evasion, Denial And Subterfuge [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 4 No 4 (1999) Home | Issue Contents PART VI Mapping Bombastic Evasion, Denial And Subterfuge Charles Ginenthal In his fifth paper, Mewhinney presents evidence in order to debunk the ancient maps of Greenland and Antarctica presented in the works of Arlington Mallery and Charles Hapgood. He claims "the maps in existence are neither ancient nor accurate."202 He adds: "There is something sober and scientific about maps, something that lends solidity to the world of imagination. Robert Louis Stevenson drew the map of Treasure Island before he wrote the story. `The shape of it took my fancy beyond expression; it contained harbours that pleased me like ...
10. Common Sense About Ancient Maps [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the only way that such an accurate map could have been made prior to this century is that these regions of Antarctica, today buried to great depth by ice, were ice-free in historical times and, to be so, had to have a tremendously different climate. Analysis of the rest of the Antarctic continent was thereafter carried out by Charles Hapgood upon detailed inspection of other old maps. The maps he employed were the Piri Re'is map and that of Oronteus Fine- the Oronteus Fineus map published in Europe in 1531. Hapgood, on discovery and inspection of the Oronteus Fineus map, felt that the general shape of the continent was startlingly like the outline of the continent on our modern ...
