Previous Poles

Two tilts ago, a polar cap was where there is an even larger and deeper depression than the Sudan Basin (a polar site before the most recent tilt) -- present Hudson Bay. While the Hudson Bay ice cap was in existence, the land masses of India, Borneo, Africa and South America lay in tandem along the equatorial bulge. Identification of Hudson Bay as the location of the North Pole two tilts ago comes from calculations showing that it is approximately the same distance from Lake Chad in the Sudan Basin as the latter is from the present North Pole, indicating again a separation of about 80 degrees of latitude.

The location of the North polar ice cap three tilts ago is ascertained in the same manner, and proves to have been at the Caspian Sea, which is located in a great depression similar to that formerly occupied by the ice caps for the Sudan Basin and Hudson Bay. All three of these depressions are presently the drainage focus for extensive river systems.

It becomes possible to trace depression after depression as the location of a former ice cap. Glacial striations were even discovered on Permian rocks two centuries ago in the Amazon Valley within an area of 20 degrees on both sides of the equator. As a matter of fact, such glacial striations are found in the rocks of the Earth at random places all over the globe. So-called Ice Ages can be traced back through their telltale striations on rock faces not only as far back as the Paleozoic Era's Lower Cambrian Epoch of some 600 million years ago, but even farther back, though these records begin to dim over such a period of time with continued capsizings and the concomitant disruption of the Earth's surface. Three such Precambrian ice cap sites are located in Africa, three others in Asia and two in Australia. Five glaciated horizons of the Permian Period (230-280 million years ago) are found in South America, and an equal number of the most recent Ice Ages are located in North America.

In the present geologic epoch, called the Pleistocene (of the Quaternary Period and Cenozoic Era), which, in essence, takes in the past one million years, many hundreds of capsizings have occurred. A partial listing of some of the more important and obvious ice-cap sites during the Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic eras can include:

  • The Gobi Desert;
  • Lake Victoria:
  • Mar Chiquita in Argentina;
  • The Black Sea;
  • Death Valley, California;
  • The Amazon Valley;
  • Baikal Lake in the USSR;
  • Lake Winnipeg;
  • The Null Arbor Plain in Australia's southwest;
  • Baffin Bay;
  • The Baltic Sea;
  • The Congo Basin;
  • The Mediterranean Sea,
  • Great Bear Lake, Canada;
  • Great Salt Lake, Utah;
  • The Thar Desert in northwest in India;
  • Aral Sea, Uzbek, USSR;
  • The Painted Desert- Lakes Michigan-Huron-Superior;
  • The Angola Basin off the coast of western Africa;
  • The Bighorn Basin, Wyoming;
  • In northeastern Siberia in the vicinity of Tabor
  • The Takla Makan Desert north of the Himalayas;
  • The Canary Basin off the northwestern African coast;
  • Great Slave Lake, Canada;
  • The Argentine Basin 930 miles southeast of Buenos Aires;
  • The Wharton Basin, 900 miles south of Djakarta.
In every location at which records written by nature or man can be studied, these sites shows radial striations which pinpoint the seat of a former ice cap. In the matter of duration, geologic evidence indicates that an individual ice cap may grow to maturity in as short a span of time as 2,900 years, although the average appears to be more in the vicinity of 5,750 years. Only rarely does an individual epoch last 6,500 years, and no other epoch within at least the past dozen has lasted as long as the present one....

Think about the finding of fossil trees, or at least portions of them, at depths of 13,000 feet beneath the Earth's surface through core boring; the discovery of 59 horizontal strata of fossilized trees separated by massive strata of marine clay -rock of non-fossil variety at Sydney Mines in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia; the fact that carbon-14 dating of the flash-frozen mammoth remains found in Siberia and North America clearly indicate an age of 7,500 years. All this material supports the contentions of the HAB Theory.

Further evidence of Earth capsizings can be found in the massive mineral deposits which man is in the process of tapping.

For example, numerous salt beds are found in subterranean strata. There is only one way to rationally account for their presence: that they were at one time the bottoms of land depressions which filled with sea water, and then became exposed again as salt wakes.

Seven successive beds of these salt deposits have been found in central New York, and a massive one is presently being tapped 1,000 feet below Cleveland, Ohio. Over 30 such beds have been discovered in the American Southwest, some deeply buried, some just under the surface. The most significant on the North American continent, however, is the one which is presently being formed in a lake which, while constantly evaporating, still covers an area about the size of the State of Delaware -- the Great Salt Lake of Utah. This 2,000-square-mile lake is the last trace of the great prehistoric body of water known to geologists as Lake Bonneville, which covered an area of 20,000 square miles and was over 1,000 feet deep. The great Bonneville Salt flats are on the surface now, but following the next capsizing of the Earth they will probably become silted over and eventually, following further capsizings, will become yet another of the multitude of subterranean salt beds.

Coal is another mineral deposit clearly corroborating the theory. Coal beds are found in subterranean deposits on a worldwide scale, including the Arctic and Antarctic, and even beneath the ocean floors. Coal mines are presently in operation in the Pacific off the coast of Chile and in the Atlantic off Nova Scotia and England.

There is only one way that coal can be formed. It is the residue of warm temperate, subtropical and tropical vegetation. Through hundreds or thousands of years great quantities of vegetative debris -- leaves, twigs, fruits, branches, roots -- sink to the bottoms of swamps, rivers or lakes. The water covering them reasonably protects them from the oxidation that would have occurred had they been exposed to air.

At the time of a capsizing, these submerged deposits are suddenly shifted to a region of sub zero temperature, and the water above them freezes. The polar summers bring enough of a thaw to allow siltage to accumulate over the mucky vegetation. When the next capsizing occurs and the deposit is shifted back to a tropical or temperate zone, this layer of silt prevents oxidation of the vegetable matter below it, while a new collection of vegetable matter is accumulating on top. Through repeated capsizings and increasing pressures, the vegetation layers are compressed into coal and the polar siltage layers become slate or shale. Some of the coal mines in Pennsylvania have shown as many as seven horizontal layers of coal with as many corresponding layers of slate or shale interleaved between. Recurrent capsizings of the Earth is the only reasonable explanation for such formations.
