The author proved a 100% mathematical correlation between orientation of ancient structures, ice ages and crustal displacements.

Life is fragile, and in the same time indestructible. Huge catastrophes swept away life on Earth many times. Gravity and motion are the main drivers of life on earth, but also the main cause of death and extinction.

The Theory of Earth Crust Displacements

After reading the title, you might ask "do we have earth crust displacements then?" The answer on this question will be given in this very comprehensive, and maybe from time to time tough article.

The theory of earth crust displacements has been dumped into the corners of pseudo science in the early 60s after Wegener's theory of plate tectonics was confirmed by evidence found on the ocean floors.

Professor Charles Hapgood claimed that the earth's crust, which is relatively thin and light (part of the lithosphere), could shift over the hot, molten magma layer (astenosphere) on which it is believed to be floating.

It was later said by scientists that there is no force strong enough to make such radical movements of the crust possible, and that only the very slow tectonic plate movements forms the earth's crust, and thus the climatic events.

Solar heat at high latitudes is reduced in two ways: light travels a longer path through the atmosphere AND the incoming light is spread over a larger surface.

The Ruling Theories Result in Too Many Contradictions

At first hand seems the current ruling scientific view viable for most of the phenomena we witness on earth.

The geological record provides irrefutable evidence that dramatic climate fluctuations have occurred throughout our planet's history.

But only when we allow ourselves to look deep enough, we see too many contradictions and illogicalities.

When we look even deeper we will find phenomena that make radical movements possible, which is a scary idea, but there's no indication it will happen soon.

Charles Hapgood delivered a lifetime achievement with his book Earth's Shifting Crust - A Key to Some Basic Problems of Earth Science. His book is interesting to read, written in simple language. Sometimes is his style a bit wordy, but never without tons of data to backup his theory. On the other hand seems his style necessary to lead you out of the ruling paradigm. To show how things really are.

Geological evidence suggests that the climate had very mild periods, virtually from pole to pole. But how is that even possible when the sun is considered to be the only heat source? How can the sun heat the poles? This idea seems to be only possible when the earth would be heated from within, through convection.

Hapgood's conclusions show enough reasons to do profound research on this issue, to find the truth.

There's no Current Explanation for the Eccentricity of Ice Ages

The eccentricity of the last ice age, more than a thousand miles off, is shouting for a rational explanation, while science is having a party about carbon caused global warming.

Radical Changes Require Radical Forces or Vice Versa

While reading Hapgood's book, you become convinced that earth crust displacements are the only credible explanation for many phenomena like:

  1. the sudden waxing and waning of glaciations,
  2. the eccentricity of recent ice caps in relation to the geo poles,
  3. that Greenland was about 450,000 years ago really green, and covered in rich flora,
  4. the sudden extinction of flora and fauna,
  5. the sudden emergence of new species.

Hapgood's treatise is much more detailed and profound then just the few actualities shown here. His style of research was original, intelligent, and very controversial. You can also call it out-of-the-mainstream ideas.

Ice depositions grow usually centric around the pole, unless a phenomena like the Warm Gulfstream makes it acentric like you can see on the North pole in March.

Why the Eccentric Ice Age Requires an Explanation

When we look at the North pole in March, we see that the Warm Gulfstream warms the whole region denoted by N3, and partially N2 and N4. The Gulfstream is very powerful.

What would happen when there wasn't a Warm Gulfstream present?

The ice formation around the pole would then become almost symmetric, and the Greenland Sea and Northern Atlantic would be completely frozen in Winter.

One could try to argue that during the last ice age there must have been a Warm Gulfstream along the coasts of Alaska and Eastern Russia, pushing itself through the Bering Strait, making this ice formation around the pole acentric. But the seaway between Alaska and Russia is far to narrow to pass through a Gulf Stream large enough to cause such a large asymmetry. The Bering Strait had to be at least 8 times wider.

It is crucial to understand that energy always flows from high to low, and not vice versa. The Warm Gulfstream is running in that region because it is a consequence of the second Law of Thermodynamics - restoring an energetic imbalance after a crustal dislocation. This process is still running today - the melting of Greenland.

The Warm Gulfstream will decrease in intensity after the situation at the North pole is returned to normal, and that is after the Greenland ice sheet is almost completely molten, which will still take about 4,000 years.

The amount of incoming solar energy  at the poles depends strongly on latitude AND season.

Why Science is Not Always Rational

One of the most serious dilemmas in Palaeontology is that Antarctica once had abundant flora and fauna, already 150 million years after the splitting up of Pangaea.

Science tells us that Antarctica was at its current location at that time. This leads us to the question: where was the solar light coming from to make this abundant lifeforms possible? Mirrors in space maybe?

No, scientists came up with an even more ludicrous theory.

During six months there is hardly any solar light on Antarctica. The Milankovitch cycles are much too weak to explain anything regarding this issue (making the South pole lightly turn to the sun).

Scientists came up with the idea how trees and plants must have adapted to an almost complete lack of sun light. Hm, without photosynthesis? How?

Why don't we see this adaptation happening today? Why do we still have taigas, tundras, and steppes and no tropical rain forests in Northern Siberia or Alaska? Or why don't we see any trees growing on top of the Himalayas?

What we see happening here is that if one possibility is moved from the scene - crustal dislocations - they are replaced by the only left possibility - plants growing without solar light. These are irrational, unreliable, and adhoc theories. The tragic is that the general public believes these fantasies as to be true, which are broadcasted by the mainstream media, inflated with beautiful animations, like fairytales for adults.

There is no other way to explain these facts than with crustal dislocations.

      Very interesting. So the distance of the earth to the sun increases the gravity and heat and causes the crust to slip. Have I got that right? This happens every 150,000 years?

      If Man has been in his present form for perhaps 500,000 years, there may have been several crustal displacements which destroyed civilization. Perhaps there was an Atlantis.

      There were earth crust shifts, that's very certain. To be precise four shifts over the last 340,000 years. The rotation speed of the earth changes with the distance to the sun, which appears to be the main driver of crustal dislocations. It is the cause of the ice ages. I won't claim that it influences gravity though.

      Thanks, so it is the change in the rotational speed which is the cause of the crustal shift. It is Not a temperature change in the earth. Does the rotational speed change once or several times during one cycle? Are there several crustal shifts or just one in one cycle? Does the rotational speed change gradually or quickly?

      Does a crustal shift occur every 85,000 years on average? Have you heard of the Toba Catastrophe Theory? Mt. Toba had a huge eruption about 76,000 years ago. Could this be the crustal shift you are talking about?

      I will read more as time permits.

      Yes indeed, the cause of crustal shifts is the change in rotational speed. The earth has minor temperature changes due to countless influences from which solar activity is probably the most important one.

      The earth's rotation speed changes over a period of one year, and is currently very small, just about 2 ms per year. This variable rotation speed is a function of the annual distance to the sun. The larger the eccentricity becomes, the larger the rotational variation. Too large variations cause an instability of the crust in relation to its core(s).

      It must be said that science is currently incapable to model this mathematically, because it is yet not well enough understood, or simply too complex. The phenomenon is only measured, not yet modelled. The process of orbital interlocking of moons around planets is one of those still not well understood phenomenons that is related to this issue.

      Crustal shifts are a function of the eccentric orbit. It is now 0.0167, which is low, and is getting even lower for the coming 26,000 years. The next dislocations aren't expected in the next 100,000 years. There was a shift about 400,000 years ago when the eccentricity was just 0.0161, but that seems to be more an exception than a rule. Probably caused by a build up of residual tensions. The most common shifts occur when eccentricity is around 0.0360 or larger. Very large eccentricities cause multiple shifts after one another.

      Crustal shifts take place over longer periods of time from about 30,000 years to about 100,000 years. The last crustal shift started around 110,000 years ago and stabilized around 50,000 years ago. The Toba catastrophe took place in the middle of that period of crustal instability.

      Thanks for your interest, and your great questions, Jay!

      You have elsewhere stated erroneously the Graham Hancock claims the "ice age" was ended by a comet impact. This is not true. The claim is that the last glacial maximum was ending and the world was warming up, then a comet impact caused a sudden global drop in temperatures, named the Younger Dryas.

      If you are going to misrepresent the statements of others in order to push your own theory it does not do you any credit.
