In my opinion, I think a "pole shift" is the biggest ignored threat possible of wreaking havoc on earth. And like the going trend, I believe there is a possibility it could happen in 2012 - the usual year given as The End of the World
. I don't know how great the chances are but I've read enough on the subject that I'll give it a creditable thought.
Radical Idea at First
For those of you who are new to the concept of a pole shift, it is where the crust of the earth slips around the molten mantle core - often metaphorically compared to an orange peel unattached from the juicy flesh inside, sliding around as the inside stays still. Sure, it sounds radical at first glance, but the digger you deep into it (??), the more realistic this theory becomes.
John White on Pole Shifts
Sometimes, the most information on a subject comes not from 1000 sources but from 1 source who's already sifted through a 1000 sources. Charles Hapgood was the first real proponent of the theory and Edgar Cayce even mentioned it happening sometime in the future during his prophetical readings. I've read many different articles and books on the subject, but the one that sticks out is Pole Shift
- by John White, editor of Future Science. He's gone through all the hard work of documenting theories by leading scientists and other reports and prophecies. It's at the beginning of this book he quotes a Bristol Press article:
"What will happen during pole shift?"
"The ultimate disaster! Enormous tidal waves will roll across the continents as oceans become displaced from their basins. Hurricane winds of hundreds of miles per hour will scour the planet. Earthquakes greater than any ever measured will change the shape of the continents. Volcanoes will pour out huge lava flows, along with poisonous gases and choking ash. Climates will change instantly, and the geography of the globe will be radically altered. If the pole shift is less than a full 180 degrees, the polar icecaps will melt rapidly, raising sea levels, while new icecaps will begin to build. And large numbers of organisms, including the human race, will be decimated or even become extinct, with signs of their existence hidden under thick layers of sediment and debris or at the bottom of newly established seas..."
