101. Genesis and Extinction [Books] [de Grazia books]
... and destroy species. At the end of an "age" (defined as a "more settled" period), the species-mix and distribution of the biosphere suffer revolutionary change. Whereupon the struggle for life niches renews under more and more uniform conditions, which may, however, not be the uniform conditions of the past age. Charles Hapgood, another catastrophist, whose work has already been cited, confronts the same problem and although admitting that the major proponent of macromutation or "systematic mutation," Richard Goldschmidt, is opposed by the majority of writers, believes that a sudden shift of the Earth's poles and crust could produce the requisite shortening of the tempo of evolution. ...
102. Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . In another place, too, he insists upon the alteration of the Earth's shape that must accompany a displacement of the geographical poles . He points to the evidence of paleomagnetism as indicating numerous different polar locations over geological time, evidence that we must largely discount. But hard geophysical evidence, as presented by Hapgood, Velikovsky and Cook, for instance, supports belief in a recent ice-age finale that shifted the north geographical pole from a position presently denominated by Baffin Island, 20 south of its present location. There is a measurable spring-back occurring all the way from Scandinavia to the Hudson Bay area, a rising area that may be due to a ...

104. Thoth Vol I, No. 3: February 18, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... He quotes mainstream experts as admitting that "this helium escape problem will not go away, and it is unsolved." Vardiman has also written an impressive-looking paper on the Ice Core dating method (which I have not studied myself). At the recent Portland conference, on "Planetary Violence in Human History Dr. Paul LaViolette disputed the Hapgood "Earth Crust Slippage" theory as argued by Rand & Rose Flem-Ath to place Plato's lost continent of Atlantis under Lesser Antarctica (which was supposedly in the Temperate Zone up until 10,500 years ago), by means of Ice Core dating. Hence, Vardiman's study of the flaws & fallacies in that method should be of interest ...

Up to now no explanation, including that advanced in 1958 by Charles H. Hapgood (Earth's Shifting Crust (NY), p. 256), adequately accounts for this remarkable phenomenon. 36.

... February issue of the journal's sister magazine Scientific American ran an article by Norman D. Newell of the American Museum of Natural History; there was no need to invoke Cuverian Catastrophes, he wrote, since scientists now know that the Earth is billions of years old: "Nevertheless, a few writers such as Immanuel Velikovsky and Charles H. Hapgood continue to propose imaginary catastrophes on the basis of little or no historical evidence." (24) But the second campaign in the Velikovsky wars was just beginning. 1. 1J.

107. Challenges to Evolutionary Gradualism [Books]
... intermediate latitudes, and the transition from winter to summer could cause catastrophic floods [2 ,3 ]. Much later, in 1967, Hugh Auchincloss Brown proposed, in Cataclysms of the Earth [4 ], that the tilt of the axis could change in catastrophic fashion, the disturbances being triggered by the weight of polar ice. Charles Hapgood produced a modified version of this model, arguing that only the crust moved, not the whole Earth [2 : pp. 161-164]. Other scenarios of catastrophe, some but not all involving changes of tilt, have invoked extraterrestrial factors as the causal agents. As we have already seen, William Whiston formulated a catastrophist theory in ...
108. An Unexplained Arctic Catastrophe – Part II: Some Unanswered Questions [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Epoch, Seattle, 1966, pp. 139-141. 15. Such explanations harmonise with the aforenoted tendency to treat frozen mammoth and rhinoceros carcasses as the only defunct permafrost' mammals that merit serious consideration. The Sibero-Alaskan record, however, includes instances of deep frozen oxen, bison, horses, sheep, tigers, and lions (C . Hapgood, The Mystery of the Frozen Mammoths', Coronet Mag., Sept. 1960, p. 76); and since few of these are genuinely Arctic animals the environmental implication of such finds inevitably invalidates the conclusions reached about these discoveries by many orthodox' investigators. 16. It is superfluous here to identify the actual agency or ...

110. Before the Day Breaks(1) -- A Perspective [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... not excusable: "This is the intolerance and arrogance, together with brutality, which one often finds in successful people, but especially [in] successful Americans."(25) All this notvithstanding, Einstein rejected interplanetary collisions to explain the geological evidence pertaining to the end of the Ice Age. He had received the work of Charles Hapgood, which suggested that the giant ice caps at the poles could grow so massive that, by their off-centered position with respect to the geographic poles, they had caused the entire crust of the Earth to catastrophically slip over the mantle. Einstein emphasised to Velikovsky that this terrestrial effect would explain Velikovsky's catastrophes. Thereafter, Einstein returned the files ...
