1. Charting Imaginary Worlds: Pole Shifts, Ice Sheets, and Ancient Sea Kings [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Charting Imaginary Worlds: Pole Shifts, Ice Sheets, and Ancient Sea Kings Sean Mewhinney In 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 Hapgood at face value and have used him to criticize the work of scientists. That's not too surprising because Velikovsky and Hapgood were fishing in much the same waters. They share a common theme in catastrophic pole shifts and appeal to much the ...

... disappointment. Much of it is not even about Hapgood's maps. First it treats us to two pages about Arlington Mallery, followed by digressions about Robert Louis Stevenson, Tolkien (! ), 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 on to commit the same sin himself. Compare Mewhinney's sarcastic footnote 71-- "The Spanish Government has a copy of Columbus' map, but its existence is secret, which was maintained ...
3. Old World Maps -- A Response to Charles Ginenthal [The Velikovskian $]
... answers his challenge using only specific information from reputable scholars, scientifically measured data, primary arithmetic and the maps themselves. OLD WORLD MAPS Charles Ginenthal, publisher of The Velikovskian, published "Common 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 the ice were removed, Greenland and Antarctica would look much like it is shown on these old maps. Mr. Ginenthal concludes his article with a challenge to bring forth evidence regarding the accuracy ...

... short stretch of coastline, if taken in isolation." [27 I tried this with various lengths of coastline; between the Piri Re'is map and modern maps; between various parts of modern 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." [28 This statement is misleading. Hapgood "used" many maps in his book. Some were simply utilized to illustrate the poorer old maps. How many old maps he may have reviewed and rejected as subject matter may not be known, but it should be obvious that he wanted to focus on maps that appeared to derive from accurate ...
5. How Old is Greenland's Ice Cap? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... ) Home¦ Issue Contents How Old is Greenland's Ice Cap? by Alasdair Beal According to a feature article in New Scientist (29th February 1992), deep boreholes now being drilled to a 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 has been glaciated continuously for over 300,000 years, then it suggests that the Earth's poles have been relatively stationary throughout this period. As in many areas, care should be taken before ...
6. Analysis Of Old World Maps [The Velikovskian $]
... doubt on the assumption Schwarz makes of the map's time and origin. If the position of the extrapolated Prime Meridian of longitude were correct with respect to the Oronteus Finaeus map, Mr. Schwarz's argument could have had some validity. But it does not. In order to ascertain whether or not these meridians of longitude are truly related to the original map from which Oronteus Finaeus produced his chart, the lines of longitude must converge at the South Pole as found in Oronteus Finaeus' copy of the original. They do not. Charles Hapgood explains: As our study continued, it gradually began to appear [that the Oronteus Finaeus network of parallels [of latitude and meridians [of longitude did not fit the Antarctic as shown on his world map. Apparently a projection had been imposed by him on a source map originally drawn with a very different kind of map grid. How were we to discover the nature of this original network of parallels and meridians? (2) (Emphasis added.) Thus, the original map from which Oronteus Finaeus drew his world ...
7. Colin Wilson: Earth's Earliest Civilisation and the Giza Meridian [SIS Internet Digest $]
... conference/ This year's Questing Conference has been seen as the most successful ever. Nearly 450 delegates squashed into the Jeffery Hall at London's Institute of Education to hear exclusive lectures from some of the world's top exponents of the alternative history field. The eclectic mix of talks proved to be a winning combination that will ensure stimulating debate for some time to come. Here is a blow by blow account of each one. Colin Wilson: Earth's Earliest Civilisation and the Giza Meridian Last year Colin Wilson asked the question- why did Professor Charles Hapgood come to believe that civilisation was 100,000 years old. Hapgood and his pupils conducted a long-term study into the maps of the ancient sea kings. Among them was the Piri Reis map of 1513, said to have been constructed from 20 or so pre-existing source maps almost certainly of pre-Columbian origin. What made this map so important is that it shows the Patagonian coastline of South America as well as parts of Antarctica before they were even discovered. Moreover, the Buache map of 1737 shows the ice-bound continent in two halves ...
8. Pole-Shift [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... 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 most of the highly publicized statements on this subject, however, the emphasis has been put not on successive displacements of the earth's outer shell but on continental drift: individual continents simultaneously moving away from or toward one another because of currents in the earth's interior. Professor Hapgood showed that the theory of continental drift (or "seafloor spreading"), as now presented to the public ...

... 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 been drawn before the present immense Antarctic ice cap had covered the coasts of Queen Maud Land." In his Preface, Hapgood says ancient voyagers traveled from pole to pole. The ancients had an instrument of navigation for accurately finding the longitudes of places that was far superior to anything possessed by the peoples of classical, medieval, or modern times until the second half of the ...
