Charles Hapgood and Crustal Displacement

Its been a long while since I posted. My co-author has been answering a lot of questions! applause!!

So watched 2012 a couple of days back, and yeah twice. And there was this reference to Charly hapgood and some theories that he proposed and the movie to quite an extent was based on it. So I decided to google it up.

Hapgood was an American Scientist. In 1958 Hapgood published his first book, The Earth’s Shifting Crust which denied the existence of continental drift. The foreword was written by the physicist Albert Einstein shortly before his death in 1955. In this book, and two successive books, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (1966) and The Path of the Pole (1970), Hapgood proposed the theory that the Earth’s axis has shifted numerous times during geological history.

This is what Einstein had to say (OK its slightly technical, but its Einstein you see)

    In a polar region there is a continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The Earth’s rotation acts on these unsymmetrically deposited masses [of ice], and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the Earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the Earth’s crust over the rest of the Earth’s body, and this will displace the polar regions toward the equator

Read this and this and this for more.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
