My education of extremely ancient history began when I came across this book and like Albert Einstein became intrigued. That led to much else in the years to come but for now this is where I want my visitors to start if they are at all interested in questions like how woolly mammoths died with buttercups in their teeth, frozen in time for thousands of years or the question of how Atlantis disappeared beneath the waves if it even existed.
This book sets you on the correct track to read what will follow as I add more information to the basic story presented thus far.
Here we go:
Hapgood’s tour de force is back in print! This riveting account of how earth’s poles have flipped positions many times is the culmination of Hapgood’s extensive research of Antarctica, ancient maps and the geological record. This amazing book discusses the various pole shifts in earth’s history — occurring when earth’s crust slips in the inner core — and gives evidence for each one. It also predicts future pole shifts: a planetary alignment will cause the next one on 5 May 2000! Packed with illustrations, this book is the reference other books on the subject cite over and over again. With millennium madness in full swing, this is just the book to generate even more excitement at the unknown possibilities.
NOTE: The above description of what is in the book could not be more misleading. The forward was written by Albert Einstein and the content is fascinating. Why Amazon did that I don’t know but what I do know is that they bullshit a lot in order to sell their product. Hapgood was an excellent investigator and deserves far better treatment than he got in this latest description of the book (the earlier one was far better).
In my next page on this topic I am going to expand on what I have learned to date. The books are a series written by Zecaria Sitchin before his death and they explain his exploration of ancient history as recorded by long dead scribes. Where did God come from? Who was God? Ancient astronauts. The sudden appearance of man. Did they have a God?
When you have finished this book go to the next series and read them also.
This is all fascinating stuff.
