31. Senmut's Ceiling and the Earth as Tippe Top (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... and in "The Ocean" [KRONOS V:4 (Summer 1980), pp. 24-25]. From his study of fossil corals, Ma deduced that the position of the equator with respect to the crust had changed from one geological age to another in a manner that could not be explained by continental drift alone. According to Hapgood, by 1949, Ma was forced by the accumulated evidence "to adopt a theory of total displacements of all the outer shells of the earth over the liquid core" down to a depth of several hundred miles.(15) Later, Ma hypothesized that Globigerina ooze alternating with red clay results from the repeated sudden displacements of the ...
... Dana [Manual of Geology, (4th ed.) p. 977] the leading American geologist of the last century." Why weren't these lands glaciated as the Ice Age theory requires? This is further corroborated in Charles Hapgood's Maps of The Ancient Sea Kings, (NY 1979), revised ed., pp. 177-178. Hapgood remarks that, "the freezing of up of Siberia [occurred] simultaneously with the thawing of North America." If as Velikovsky suggested the axis of the Earth tilted, or as Hapgood suggested the crust of the Earth slipped, then as Siberia moved into the polar regions it would freeze while as North America moved into the temperate ...

Shaded area shows ice cap where land falls below extrapolated sea level. Figure 6 a-c. After C. H. Hapgood: Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings .] (c ) Hadji Ahmed's World Map of 1559. The Tertiary period from the Oligocene onwards saw a sharp decline in global temperatures - at middle latitudes by as much as 17 degrees Celsius. Since Antarctica had a warm climate for most of the Tertiary, it would seem ...
34. The Environment And Preservation Of The Mammoth [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... and not during the Ice Age, and it is, therefore, incumbent upon this author that he make a fundamental case that this is in fact correct. According to the various uniformitarian advocates of the overkill and climate hypotheses, the end came to these arctic giants 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. Other catastrophists such as Hapgood, Hoyle, etc., offer cataclysmic causes for the demise of these animals, but also claim that they became extinct similarly about 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. Since it has already been demonstrated above that the mammoths did not and could not have lived in the arctic during the lce Age, then they could ...
35. Perilous Planet Earth: Catastrophes and Catastrophism Through the Ages by Trevor Palmer. [Journals] [SIS Review]
... changes, another theory was required to explain the differences between species. The debate was fierce and is captured by Palmer in chapters 9-11. Whilst the mainstream was concentrating on this debate the Heretical Catastrophists', the title of chapter 12, were making more radical suggestions, including crustal displacements and projectiles from space. Palmer reviews the work of Hapgood, Kugler and Beaumont before turning to Velikovsky, the formation of the SIS and the Glasgow Conference. All are treated, uniquely, in an identically thorough manner to the mainstream thread. From there, he examines the controversies over possible Bronze Age catastrophes including, on page 120, a superb summary of the conclusions of Schaeffer. The ...
36. The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times by James Bailey [Journals] [Kronos]
... , Canaanite rock inscriptions ranging from Brazil to Tennessee, and persistent Nahau, Maya, and Quechua oral traditions of white gods who came from across the Atlantic. Bailey is but one of several scholars who have recently posited pre-Columbian cultures of global extent. Among these are Constance Irwin (in Fair Gods and Stone Faces, 1963), Charles Hapgood (in Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, 1966), and Cyrus Gordon (in Before Columbus, 1971), of whom Gordon stops at the third millennium B. C., while Hapgood pushes back into the Mesolithic Period. My personal inclination is to be sympathetic with Bailey and his confreres, if only because they have ...
37. The Continuing Ica Mystery [Journals] [SIS Review]
... All Dinosaurs Reptiles?", Kronos II:2 , 1976, pp. 91-100). In southern Mexico at Acambaro models of dinosaurs occur in a vast collection (some 36,000 pieces) of ceramics, damned as "forgeries" in a case which reveals striking similarities to that of the Ica stones. American historian Professor Charles Hapgood* investigated the case and claimed to have witnessed the excavation of such models. Radiocarbon tests he arranged on organic material within the clay, and a thermoluminescence test on a ceramic piece, all gave results of the order of 3000 to 6000 years BP. Given the considerable problems inherent in the application of the methods, such results are ...
38. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... /changingpoles.html It began as a search for Atlantis. But Charles Hapgood's discovery of our shifting planet is perhaps more profound. If his data is correct, we've got to face some unsettling facts about our Earth's past and- and more importantly- our future. The "Shifting Poles Theory" was introduced by History Professor, Charles H. Hapgood, whose fascination with geography and ancient maps led to his re-discovery of the Piri Reis Map. This hand drawn Turkish naval map had been gathering dust since the early 1500's, its significance unrealized. On closer scrutiny, Hapgood observed evidence of spherical trigonometry and a detailed knowledge of global geography- including the coastline of Antarctica at a remote time ...

... of Charles Hapgood's book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. This classic of anomaly literature has been reissued and is available from the Sourcebook Project (see Bookshelf). For older members this was a refreshing new look at material they have probably been meaning to brush up on for years; for those not au fait with the work of Hapgood it was an excellent appetite-whetter. The crucial facts are that, until the first successful chronometer was taken on an ocean voyage in 1762 navigators had no reliable means of determining longitude and the first recorded landing on Antarctica was not until 1895. Before the 18th century, all great explorers apparently depended upon luck and before the 19th century the ...
40. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... said Hancock's thesis involves astronomical retro-dating to give the date of around 12/11,000 BC but changes in the earth's pole positions, orbit or length of day would render this inaccurate. Hancock is clearly a catastrophist but by implication he does not believe the polar axis has shifted significantly in the last 13,000 years. However Charles Hapgood, whom he quotes extensively, believed (like Velikovsky) that the pole positions had shifted in the relatively recent past. Perhaps neither Hancock nor his researchers read Worlds in Collision but from some of the phrases he uses this seems unlikely. David Roth said he quotes Earth in Upheaval, so he clearly knows about Velikovsky. John said ...
