Having just watched the very entertaining new film "2012", it
seemed appropriate to write about it. Many of you will think - Why
is a fiction movie worthy of inclusion on this site? Well, the
answer is simply, because it is a very real possibility that
the events depicted in the movie have happened in the past.
The catastrophic event is a Earth Crust Displacement, also
known as a poleshift or crust shift. An event that has been
written about a number of authors, such as Hugh A. Brown, Allen W.
Eckert, Arthur Ryan, and; as mentioned in the movie, Charles H.
Hapgood. This same theory has even received a positive endorsement
from Albert Einstein.
In "Cataclysms of the Earth" and "Path of the Poles", Brown and
Hapgood look at many anomalies of Earth's past to provide evidence
of previous Crust Displacements. When these previous non-fiction
works seemed to land on deaf ears, Eckert wrote "The HAB Theory"
in a fiction tale, in a further attempt to get the word out.
Like the movie, Ryan believes the phenomena can and will happen
again. His theory for the cause of the shift differs from that of
the film and Ryan does not set an exact date for its culmination.
Yet, his brief description of what will transpire immediately
before and during the shift are eerily similar to the movie and
just as devastating. The survival of life on the planet will
indeed hang in the balance.
What makes Ryan's work different from that of Brown, Hapgood,
and Eckert is the inclusion of a natural process that causes the
shift. This cause differs from that used in the film to tell the
story. All of these authors agree that the probable cause for the
Crust Displacement is a unbalanced build-up of ice on the polar
caps that will eventually start an uncontrollable wobble that
eventually succumbs to the physics of centrifugal force.
In the movie, the cause of our demise comes in the form
neutrinos emitted by the sun, that super heats the earth's core
and destabilizes the crust. Two problems immediately become
apparent with this theory. One - examinations of core samples and
exposed extremely aged rocks does not contain evidence to support
the idea that this has happened in the past and thereby fails to
explain those items addressed by others. Two - In
this softening of the earth it seems more probable that the crust
in both the Northern and Southern hemisphere would actually move
towards the equator in the same relative locations and seemingly
blend with the tectonic plates already there. This would also be
due to the influences of centrifugal force caused by the earth's
rotation. Not a true shift. This is not meant as a negative
comment on the entertainment factor of the movie. It is pointed
out to show that this is probably a cataclysm that will happen
again sometime in the future. The film has some basis on a very
real science that has not been given the attention it merits. A
lack of notice by the mainstream scientific community could result
in our demise.
So, should we resign ourselves to humanity's total
destruction barring some government program that can be bought?
The answer is NO! Unlike the movie, which shows the entire planet
flooded by water, it is more likely that there will be small areas
where the shift can be survivable. There is a chance that mankind
will make it to the next epoch.
However, if Ryan is correct in his theory, there
is something that the governments and scientists of the world can
do now to prevent the next Crust Displacement. These actions are
very important and given the appropriate attention do-able.
Instead of devoting resources to topics that are based on weak or
non-existent science, we should endeavor to save our present
This redirect of the governments' and scientific
communities' focus needs your help to facilitate. Cries of warning
cause us to invest resources. So, you need to review the
aforementioned books, and then sound the warning by telling
everyone you can think of to spread the word. Remember the squeaky
wheel gets the grease.
Mankind's survival is in the balance - Are you up
to the task?
Crust Shift Theory Gaining Acceptance
It has been said that new ideas are ridiculed before they are
accepted. Albert Einstein also is quoted saying "Great spirits
have always encountered violent opposition..." This is an article
that clearly shows an example of this in the present day.
Some of the "Great Spirits" are people like Brown, Hapgood,
Eckert, and Ryan. These individuals have worked to enlighten us as
to an idea that has met with opposition and are just now starting
to be looked at by mainstream science. In works such as
"Cataclysms of the Earth", "Path of the Poles", "The HAB Theory",
and "Are We Worth Our Salt?" these authors have outlined a
apocalyptic event that they believe has happened many times in the
Brown and Hapgood have given a large amount of evidence to
support the theorized event takes place and Eckert has written a
fiction tale in order to increase awareness of the phenomena. Ryan
take the topic to the next level by not only providing additional
evidence; but, he also lays out a natural recurring physical
process for its culmination.
You might ask yourself "Just what is this event and why should
Well, the phenomena is a shift of the crust of the earth. It is
also known as a earth crust displacement, pole shift and even
polar shift. This topic should not be confused with the magnetic
polar wandering which is a less traumatic and probably harmless
In a crust shift, the entire outer layer of the earth
(lithosphere) begins to slide over the mantle (the liquid
interior) known as magma, bringing what the earth knows as polar
caps into a more temperate area, closer to the equator. This event
subsequently causes new polar caps to take root.
A look at possible past events of this type give us a different
view of things like ice ages and these events actually provide a
viable explanation for many, if not all, of earth's mysteries and
yet unanswered reasons for items that the scientific community
tell us happened without providing for their cause. No
other theory equals a crust shift for solving simple questions
like "Why are wooly mammoths frozen in Siberia and elsewhere?" and
many, many more.
Quite frankly, the ignoring of the theory and the
treatment by the scientific community of these author's works has
been appalling. It can only be explained by the unwritten rule
that cataclysms are "off-limits". Any work of this sort has been
relegated to the shelves for the lunatic fringe. This is really
strange when you consider that many mass extinctions have taken
place in the past and that science merely guesses at the probable
cause without any solid evidence. You can probably imagine that a
crust shift would be extremely dangerous to life on earth, similar
to the chaos shown in the new movie "2012" and could easily answer
yet another mystery.
For over fifty years, this theory has been ignored
and ridiculed despite a positive endorsement from Albert Einstein.
Said endorsement is merely explained away by saying the Einstein
was not aware of tectonic plate movement back then and should be
excused his words. However, upon reading the aforementioned books,
you will find that tectonic plates and their ability to move
further enables the event. So, the ignoring of the theory
Until Now! In a news article published on Science
Daily, entitled "Planet Earth May Have 'Tilted' To Keep Its
Balance, Say Scientists" a group led by Adam Maloof of Princeton
University have determined that a crust shift has, in fact,
happened in the past.
The report cleverly calls the event a "true polar
wander" in a seemingly obvious attempt to disassociate from a
crust shift. This is clearly the same type of phenomena and the
renaming may allow Maloof to keep his reputation and funding in
the mainstream scientific community. However, the group has
clearly confirmed the work done by others. It should also be
pointed out that previous scientific research done and reported on
for the same phenomena has some how disappeared from the the Web
and other archives. One such report used to be available on World
Mysteries. That report has now disappeared to the same place socks
go when you lose them in the dryer.
With that in mind, we should truly hope that
Maloof is successful in shedding light on the subject without
destroying his career. It should be further hoped that Maloof
acknowledge the previous work of others as he attempts to move the
theory into the "Acceptance" phase in the scientific community.
Now to answer why you should care. This cataclysmic event has
happened many times in the past and in Ryan's book we can easily
see that the event will again occur. The exact date is not
foretold and probably can not be. However, with climate changes
happening and processes that Ryan described becoming true, can we
not assume that the next crust shift will happen sometime in the
near future. That is a bet that should not placed on the losing
side. Especially given the fact that Ryan goes so far to offer a
possible preventive measure that is well within our power to

Crust Displacement Threat
Do the Governments Know?
If an Earth Crust Displacement was imminent, be it next week,
year, decade, etc., would the governments of the world tell us? Do
the-powers-that-be trust us to be able to handle the news? Or, is
it more likely that those "in the know" will work covertly to
protect a select few from the coming doom?
Before any of these questions can be answered, we need to
determine if the government could possibly know about the threat
of a Crust Displacement, also known as a Crust Shift or Pole
Shift. Therefore, a quick look at the nearly innumerable written
reports, articles, and books is in order to show its exposure.
Then a discussion of the new film “2012” will take place that will
show how Hollywood views the topic.
