11. Colin Wilson: Earth's Earliest Civilisation and the Giza Meridian [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 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 ...
12. Analysis Of Old World Maps [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... 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 ...
13. The Mapmakers from the ice age [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... .com/homepages/jlacroix1/geoAN.html A geodesic net of planetary size has been settled during the 10th millenary before Christ. Its structure has been revealed by the special repartition of a certain number of sacred sites. For a long time, I have been puzzled by the very ancient and accurate maps studied by Charles H. Hapgood in Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, proofs of the existence of a advanced civilization in the ice age. One of those maps includes practically the whole earth: it's a map that belonged in the XVIth century to the Turkish Admiral Re'is. Hapgood has shown that the original map has been drawn using a trigonometrical method according to a ...
14. On the Possibility of Instantaneous Shifts of the Poles [Journals] [Aeon]
... been disregarded on the basis that such a phenomenon is thought to be physically impossible. The following article shows the possibility of very rapid shifts of the poles due to the impact of astronomical objects as small as a half-kilometer diameter asteroid. Introduction In his book "The Path of the Pole" (Chilton Book, Philadelphia, 1970) Charles Hapgood expresses the hypothesis that the poles have changed their position three times during the recent past. From the Greenland Sea, where it shifted about seventy thousand years ago, the north pole moved to Hudson Bay fifty thousand years ago, and finally to its presents position 11.600 years ago, at the end of Pleistocene. To support ...

16. Hapgood's Ancient Maps (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that the cartographers of 1300-1500 AD must have had access to one or more very ancient source maps', which have not since been rediscovered. Hapgood's analyses, though extensive, are clearly not yet as complete as they could be and there is scope for further progress. I would particularly draw attention to some points which were not covered by Hapgood and which could be exploited by future students of these maps, as follows: a. It looks to be a near certainty that the principal source map must have been on a globe. The many so-called Portolano' maps are obviously constructed on the basis of a system of rings of compass roses, which represents a particularly simple way ...
17. The Problem of the Frozen Mammoths [Journals] [Kronos]
... from the Siberian muck.(1 ) Statements such as " absolutely countless numbers"(2 ) and "tens of thousands of mammoths"(3 ) have given the false impression that that many mammoths have actually been found frozen in the Siberian tundras. In point of fact less than 100 frozen mammoths have been discovered to date. Hapgood writes of "eighty-odd mammoths;"(4 ) Schuchert and Dunbar state that "there are records of fifty-one Siberian occurrences; '( 5 ) while Farrand asserts that "there have been at least 39 discoveries of frozen mammoth remains."(6 ) Somewhere there should be an accurate record but in no way will it include ...

... map not based on accurate geographic knowledge." According to Mewhinney, "Beal has absolutely no idea what he is talking about, and doesn't care." "He [Beal] knows nothing about the history of navigation and exploration and has no interest in learning." "Beal...has done nothing whatsoever but regurgitate what Hapgood has spoon-fed him." Mewhinney finds my comments to be "self-serving and hypocritical," "an extended rant full of flightiness, pomposity, circular rationalizations, distortions, and outright falsehoods, only a few of which can be attributed to his limited attention span, in defense of some absurdly silly beliefs," and informs readers that ...
... an introduction to the German edition of Upton Sinclair's book on telepathy. In the early 1940's he had been approached by Wilhelm Reich; initially Einstein had been quite receptive and had tried without success to verify experimentally some of Reich's propositions. While Velikovsky was writing his challenge to geological uniformitarianism, Einstein was working with another catastrophist, Charles H. Hapgood, who proposed that the Earth's crust has recently and repeatedly shifted due to imbalances caused by the planet's nonsphericity and asymmetrical icecap growth. The Einstein-Hapgood association began with a letter to the Nobel laureate on November 24, 1952, just after Velikovsky began a similar correspondence. As Einstein wrote in his introduction to Hapgood's book, I frequently receive ...
20. The Punctuation Marks of Geological History [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History III:1 (Jan 1981) Home | Issue Contents The Punctuation Marks of Geological History Charles H. Hapgood There is much geological evidence pointing to the occurrence of catastrophes, not necessarily cataclysms involving the entire earth, but catastrophes in a true sense just the same. One of these occurred in South America only a few thousand years ago. It appears that the Cordillera of the Andes was suddenly and drastically uplifted while the city of Tiahuanaco was still inhabited. The ruins of that city are close to the shore of Lake Titicaca, which stands at an elevation of 12,000 feet above sea level. It is known that some marine ...
