91. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... major catastrophes in earth history, (1 ) the rupture of Pangaea and continental shift, and (2 ) the Earth-Girdling Rift and Ridges, EGRR, as interpreted by the science of rock mechanics. These fracture and distortion patterns are seen clearly to support the Ice Cap Model of Hapgood-Campbell and the author's model of Continental Shift, CS. Hapgood and Campbell did not describe how Pangaea ruptured and the mechanism of CS. The author began in the late 1950's to quantize the rupture and sudden shift (not drift) of the continents to about their present locations. Results agreed with the times given in Biblical history as determined from data given by Heiskanen and Vening-Meinesz from gravity anomaly studies ...
92. Much Ado about Tippe Top (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... a simple answer, the most important being the fact that the bulge is caused primarily by the rotation. If the pole did move to Wynnewood and stay, the equatorial bulge would presently move to the new equator. The manner in which the bulge would move and how long it would take to do so are both open to question. Hapgood (The Path of the Pole), who was referenced in the Forum discussion, developed a particularly good understanding of the implications of all this, and further suggested that the solid skin of the Earth might under some conditions slip around on the fluid center without requiring movement of the spin axis or even the central portion of the Earth ...
93. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... merely northward, for it has been established by Hillary Deacon and Profeesor P. V. Tobias [1 ] that 100,000 years ago there was a colony of modern Man' (Homo Sapiens) at Klaasies River Mouth at the southern tip of Africa. According to the evidence in The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings by Charles Hapgood, Antarctica, at this period, was ice-free and both Southern Africa and South America were in the same juxtapositions as at present. Therefore I contend that the migration of Negroid' people into South America was much more likely by this route than across the Pacific Ocean. A further indication of this is the fact that the remains of ...
94. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... occur where cool slabs of crust subduct at the margins of oceans. This led to the observation that such abnormal dense, cold masses appear to lie largely in the equatorial region which is no coincidence because the Earth's axis would tend to shift so that the equator is closest to the densest masses. (Note the theories of Auchincloss Brown and Hapgood that such shifts happened catastrophically when a critical build up of ice occurred at the poles. Could such catastrophic shifts occur in response to the impact of a large body adding mass to an area of crust nearing critical point through slower tectonic processes?) As islands such as the Azores can therefore be formed in areas of denser, cold ...
95. The Uranians [Books] [de Grazia books]
... wonders whether the ice cap may have been a scattered set of accumulations from sky drops and brief frigid episodes. This would allow a reconciliation to some degree with those who, like Donnelly, argue that the ice ages are a myth and their "remains" are comet-deposited gravel in fact, and also with those scholars such as Cook and Hapgood who envisioned large caps, global tilt, and an avalanche of the ice perhaps ten thousand years ago. THE CREATION OF MAN (see Figure 11 and accompanying chart) Amidst the developing chaos, the hominids were being replaced by the human race. A growing population was being reduced even as the species itself realized its human qualities. ...
96. James Hutton: A Non-inductive, Theological Catastrophist [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... indicates. Thus, when we test the gradualist concept that all changes are slow and find a global contradiction to it, the belief system comes into play and the evidence is ignored. What would create such a global phenomenon except a global catastrophe? The catastrophe has to be of either internal or external origin. To date, only Charles Hapgood has suggested an internal mechanism that, if valid, could generate the world's raised beaches. All other mechanisms are external and require major celestial catastrophes, even though we have not experienced one in our time. Those geologists and astronomers of this century who understand this are beginning to move toward just such a position as a history for the ...
97. Instantaneous Shifts of the Poles [Journals] [Aeon]
... this happen? The proffering of mathematics concerning a semi-fluid gyroscope can be of great value. However, a hasty assumption related to velocity can lead to questionable conclusions. Patten and Windsor have offered a better explanation of planetary rotation, and magnetic field inversion, one that is far superior to that of uniformitarian dogma from which scientists, including Charles Hapgood, have been trying to extricate themselves. [2 ] A far more reasoned cosmogony of the Solar System is sorely needed. The model presently adhered to ignores too much. Flavio Barbiero Replies: Rhodes' critique seems to be supportive of my theory since, after all, his criticisms do not question its basic mechanism, but are ...
98. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... parts of the crust through appropriately large excursions. Studies of polar wander have associated magnetic polar wander with wander of glaciated regions, but these have been rapid movements on a geological time scale. Moving the whole Earth provides a better fit with the data than does the concept of plate drift alone, as Gold (1955), Wegener, Hapgood and others have pointed out (Sullivan 1977). Furthermore, the extent of glaciation in the recent ice ages was not uniformly increased about the pole but is best described as a displacement of the polar cap. The boundary is roughly delimited by the East Siberian and Laptev Seas at 70 N, great Britain at 55 N and the ...

100. Monitor. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is still largely considered to be a nutty' idea but it's wonderfully elegant' at explaining a lot of peculiar geological problems. It is thought to be due to the readjustment of an unbalanced crustal mass when magma builds up under a super-continent. (A build up of ice at the poles was thought to be such a trigger by Charles Hapgood and Hugh Auchincloss Brown in their unorthodox books.) A 90º shift is thought to have happened around 520 Myrs ago, a 20º shift at 110 Myrs ago and another at 84 Myrs ago. Although the resulting climate and sea level changes and their probable effects on evolution are noted, the scientists are still only thinking in terms of ...
