81. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Discussion: Catastrophe and Planetary Motions'. Moderator: Roger Wescott. Panel: Bass, Flem-Ath, Holden, Rose, Van Flandern Rand Flem-Ath hopes to organise an expedition to Antarctica. He mentioned an article in Dec. 1985 Scientific American on the Crustal Displacement Theory. Robert Bass said White's Pole shift theory had been retracted and Velikovsky and Hapgood had been disproved. Flem-Ath insisted Hapgood's maps accurately depict longitude, which the article did not deal with. Einstein was electrified by the theory of crust displacement and wrote ten letters to Hapgood. He made four suggestions to change the research and wrote the introduction to Hapgood's book, though it was published long after his death. There were ...
82. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... items, Astronomy' and Electromagnetism' and David Salkeld's Old Testament Tales' (all in C&CR 2004:1 /C &CW 2004:2 ) particularly interesting. It seems to me that two books that provide enlightenment on the above subjects are The Cosmic Serpent (Clube and Napier) and The Path of the Pole (Hapgood). The writers of the Old Testament were trying to describe occurrences that they did not understand in language which could be understood by readers/listeners who would have had no idea what they were talking about. Difficult! Messrs. Shoemaker and Levy's comet finally opened the eyes of astronomers to the malignant effects of comets/asteroids and ...
83. Intensity, Scope and Suddenness [Books] [de Grazia books]
... induced by a ring of microtektites and tektites circling the Earth for perhaps a million years and obscuring the Sun [9 ]. Ogden discusses abrupt changes in American forestation about 10.000 years ago, also climatically impelled, with the pattern of pollen deposits in lake sediments moving at the rate of a mile a year . Hapgood has compared what arc regarded as normal' rates of ice retreat with the results of carbondating, and allows some 60,000 by the one and only 17,000 by the other. He believes that the carbondating must be in error . Cracraft, in expatiating upon the "punctuated equilibrium model" of macroevolution, ...
84. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... few with such persuasive arguments fortified with the latest developments in technological forensic tools. Our first look is at the legacy of archaic sea maps from the 15th and 16th centuries, apparently copied from much earlier charts, that depict land masses unknown to the intrepid voyagers in the days of Columbus, focusing- as did the late science historian Charles Hapgood of Keene College- on the Piri Reis map of 1513, the Oronteus Finaeus map of 1531, and the Mercator (Gerard Kremer) map of 1569, not to mention the unreferenced Martin Behaim map of 1492, the later ones illustrating the outline of the Americas and, for purposes of Hancock's theme, an ice-free Antarctica. Such ...
85. Andrew Collins: The Truth of the Past - Finding Historical Reality in the Alternative Field of Research [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... grandfather of Fortean research, Charles Fort, wrote a work entitled simply `X', which proposed that human life as we knew it came originally from Antarctica. Sadly, the book never reached the light of day. The first serious suggestion that Antarctica might have been the setting for a lost civilisation came from the works of Professor Charles Hapgood, most particularly his 1966 classic Maps of the Ancient Sea-kings. Having discerned the outline of the coastline of Antarctica on ancient portolan maps, such as the Piri Reis map of 1513 and the Buache map of 1737, Hapgood proposed that there had existed, prior to the rise of civilisation, a sea-faring culture of immense sophistication which mapped ...
86. A New Theory of Celtic Festivals [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of the Arctic Archipelago, the interior of Alaska and the low lands of northern Siberia were never glaciated. These phenomena still remain unexplained . If Stone Age humans penetrated the unglaciated areas of the far north during one of the warmer periods of the Pleistocene, then some archaeological traces could remain to this day. Charles H. Hapgood quotes the following reference from the November 1968 issue of the Soviet publication Sputnik: Archaeologists have discovered traces of a Stone Age settlement on the Novosibirsk Islands (New Siberian Islands) . . . They have found bone implements and arrowheads, as well as needles and axes skilfully fashioned from mammoth tusks. Spitzbergen was once inhabited, too. ...
87. On the Pendulum Experiment (Vox Popvli) [Journals] [Kronos]
... which has eluded citation by most scientists and journalists, is that the mammoths lacked the oil glands which are essential for adaptation to extreme cold. How could this fact escape notice? While Sanderson asserted the inadequacy of fur and fat, he did not mention the lack of oil glands. In The Path of the Pole, Charles H. Hapgood quotes H. Neuville on the lack of the oil glands.(8 ) Neuville, a French zoologist and dermatologist, compared the skin of the mammoth and Indian elephant and found them to be identical except for the amount of hair.(9 ) Neuville was not pursuing catastrophic ends so he attributed the mammoths' extinction to progressive ...
88. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - II (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... and in special reference to the Kerr article cited by Ellenberger. It is indeed a puzzle why a 0.1 % variation in Earth's orbital eccentricity should be thought to give rise to such large effects as ice ages. The only conclusion I can draw is that the scientists are too stubborn to look for an alternative causative mechanism. Charles Hapgood was not alone in rejecting the Milankovitch theory and seeking another explanation of the ice ages. Most recently we have seen how Victor Clube and Bill Napier have done without Milankovitch. They claim that an encounter with a large comet, or the breakdown products of one such, would have produced so much dust and debris that an ice age ...
89. Crustal Distortion in the Holocene [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... was Pitstone Quarry near Tring. Unfortunately, the water table has risen since the quarry became redundant and nothing can be seen. There is a small geological exhibition there, and the Natural History Museum in Tring has some interesting exhibits. The quarry is now the College Lake Wildlife Centre and is open to the general public. 2. Charles Hapgood, Earth's Shifting Crust. Philadelphia. 1958 and The Path of the Pole. Philadelphia. 1970. The idea was resurrected by Rand and Flem-Ath in When the Sky Fell: In Search of Atlantis. Weidenfeld and Nicolson. 1995. Hapgood visualised the crust slipping over the inner mantle material of the Earth, a process quite different to ...
90. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... .P .31 However, the plant remains and pollen found in its stomach were dated to the hipsithermal, roughly 7,000 to 6,000 years ago.32 Which dates are we to accept? The same kind of evidence also applies to a mastodon whose bones were discovered at a farm in Tupperville, Ontario. According to Hapgood: "The contents of the mastodon's skull consisting of humus material was dated and turned out to be 6,230 t 240 years old.... Therefore the reporter of the date concludes,'...date which agrees with pollen diagram from site suggests nonsedimentation and exposure [to the air] of bone for about ...
