21. On "The Year -687": A Postscript (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Canada's arctic coast. The ancient pole, then, could lie anywhere along this arc. Here is what I believe actually happened: On the endpapers of Charles Hapgood's Path of the Pole(4 ) is a map showing putative positions of the north pole during the past 80,000 years. Citing paleomagnetic studies of Pleistocene volcanic deposits, Hapgood argued that from about 50,000 until some 12,000 to 17,000 years ago, the pole was situated at a point near 60 N., 80 W. This is just south of Baffin Island. Hapgood believed that polar displacements have occurred many times in the Earth's past, accompanied by violent folding and faulting. ...
22. Sagan's fourth problem: Terrestrial Geology And Lunar Craters (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... .P . Brooks in Climate Through the Ages, (NY 1949), p. 296, between 8,000 and 4,000 years ago, the temperature of the Earth was 5 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than now. This is termed the "hipsithermal" and there is no acceptable explanation for this higher temperature. According to Charles Hapgood, The Path of the Pole, (Philadelphia 1977), pp. 106-107, "During the Byrd Expedition of 1947-1948, Dr. Jack Hough, then of the University of Illinois, took three cores from the bottom of the ocean off the Ross Sea, and these were dated by the ionium method of radioactive dating at the ...
23. On Fermor's article on ante-diluvian climate [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... in high altitudes [sic] and wetter conditions in present-day deserts." (I'm sure latitudes was meant, not altitudes.) This argument, explaining the presence of corals and coal deposits under the polar ice-clad regions, is the Uniformitarian theory and unfortunately is still in vogue. The same theory has been disputed by several Uniformitarians, notably Hapgood (Path of the Pole, Chilton, 1970, Chap. 3), whose theory of a wandering pole and lithospheric displacements explain all the facts better than the orthodox theory. The work done on fossil corals refutes the idea of universal warm temperatures and of lack of seasons: "it became clear that the total width of the ...
24. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock [Journals] [SIS Review]
... much earlier ones. Once it is accepted that these are genuine maps which are copies of originals drawn in 4,000 BC or earlier, one has to postulate a civilisation at that time capable of travelling to all parts of the globe and recording what they found. Hancock, having satisfied himself and, I think, the reader that Hapgood was right, set out to discover what memory remained of that civilisation and its demise. In Peru he saw the Nazca lines, those strange animals and birds, known and unknown, and geometrical designs, drawn by removing tons of pebbles from the ground. Here he found references to Orion - according to astronomer Dr Phillis Pitluga [ ...
25. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... . In fact, when they do move it is only under a force sufficient to fracture and/or plastically deform massive rocks of extremely high strength, a process that probably cannot occur uniformly but only in certain sudden, explosion-like processes. In the present theory of continental drift emphasis is placed on the importance of glaciation following the suggestion of Hapgood and Campbell . As previously indicated, the theory that the continents of the earth once comprised a single continent is being prominently accepted (Fig. 9). The evidence for this theory includes, besides good geometrical fitting of some portions of the continents, including, as the best example, eastern South America and western ...
26. Obituary: Derek Scott Allan (1917-2000) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... so about 1970 they moved to Plymouth and in 1972 he took early retirement to care for her. They moved to the Oxfordshire Chilterns and were joined by their recently-widowed daughter, Shirley. Despite being occupied as nurse', Derek became a reader at the nearby Bodleian Library and began to marshal his Arctic material in book form. In 1966 Hapgood had published independent studies of anomalous maps of Greenland, Antarctica, the Mediterranean basin and northwest Europe in his Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Derek approached Thorsons, publishers of the English edition, about publishing his own Arctic researches but without success. He corresponded with Hapgood, discussing their differing views: Derek believed that only a change ...
27. On the Crab Supernova of 1054 [Journals] [Kronos]
... Review, 80 (December 1977): 39. 5 . Eddy, p. 140. 6. Paul and Lesley Murdin, The New Astronomy (Thomas Y. Crowell Company, New York, 1978), p. 9. DYNAMICS OF THE ROTATING EARTH To the Editor of KRONOS: In The Path of the Pole, Charles Hapgood points out a misconception quite common amongst those who deal with dynamics of the rotating Earth*.... To explain in rather different terms than Hapgood uses, there are two elements to consider regarding the stability of a rotating sphere; the orientation of the spin axis relative to the universe and the orientation of the sphere relative to ...
28. Mammoth Update: A Reply to Ellenberger (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... 160. "I have been informed that, today when reindeer fall down crevasses in the Greenland ice, they are subsequently found to be in an unpleasantly putrefied condition . . . The Siberian mammoths, in spite of their much greater body weight, have not putrefied in the same way. . . ." 5. Charles H. Hapgood, The Path of the Pole (Phila.,1970), pp. 264-269. Also, William R. Farrand, "Frozen Mammoths and Modern Geology", Science 133 (17 March 1961), pp. 729-735 (731-733); and Dillow, pp. 6-8 (See note 8). 6. Ivan Sanderson ...
29. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... speculative in nature, continued to be put forward, to little effect. Hugh Auchincloss Brown (1879-1975), an engineer who graduated from Columbia University, proposed in a 1948 private publication that the tilt of the Earth's axis could change in catastrophic fashion, the disturbances being triggered by the weight of polar ice. Ten years later, Charles Hapgood, a science historian from Keene State College, New Hampshire, began to argue for a similar theory, in which only the crust moved, not the whole Earth. However, these ideas made little impression on orthodox scientific thought [7 , 22]. Scenarios based on extraterrestrial impacts fared no better. That was hardly surprising, ...
30. How Much Did They Know? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , 1969; London: Macmillan, 1970); SECRETS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID by Peter Tompkins, with an appendix by Livio C. Stecchini (London: Allen Lane, ]971); HISTORICAL METROLOGY by A. E. Berriman (London: Dent, 1953); and MAPS OF THE ANCIENT SEA KINGS by Charles H. Hapgood (Philadelphia, 1966; London: Turnstone, 1977). An idea which has been gaining ground recently is that maybe the ancients - the people of the pre-scientific, and even preliterate ages - were not so ignorant, superstitious and generally "primitive" as we (for the last couple of centuries at least) have thought them ...
