01 - Earth Crust Shift

Original date of article: January 2019

According to Charles Hapgood, the former location of the magnetic North Pole was at 60° N / 73° W. About 15,000 to 10,000 years ago the magnetic pole would have shifted to his current position. On average that would have been around 12,500 years ago, thus 10,500 BC.

Has there indeed been a crustal shift in the past?

The magnetic and geographical poles (the earth axis with the real North and South Pole) do not coincide, but the distance between these two is relatively small. If in a distant past the magnetic pole was located at 60°N / 73°W then the earth axis was "standing" at the same location or at least in the vicinity of it. This can only be explained by a crustal shift. During a crustal shift, the earth axis naturally remains at the same location. However, a continent lying in the polar region shifted away from the north pole while another continent moved towards it.

If the Earth Crust begins to shift, that movement describes a circle on the surface of the earth.

The fact the earth crust started to shift has undoubtedly created a huge shock with catastrophic events as result (the initial shock). This movement of the earth crust probably persisted several centuries to then finally come to a standstill again, once more with a violent shock (the end shock). The assumption here is that the earth crustal shift started at about 10.500 BC, continued for 5 centuries and stopped around 10.000 BC.

Construction works erected during a crustal shift.

During a crustal shift the earth's axis always stays in the same place, it’s only the earth's surface that is shifting. Before starting a new building, the sides of it were initially aligned exactly to the (North) pole star, at the beginning that building was perfectly north-south oriented. But, the earth crust moved and so did that structure, after a while that building was no longer correctly oriented to the north.


A. Building 1 was aligned to the (north) pole star, perfectly north-south.

B. The earth crust had already shifted over a certain angle, building 1 therefore was no longer standing perfectly north-south but had already a certain NW orientation. At that time, building 2 could have been erected, again perfectly north-south. But the earth crust was still shifting.

C. At a later time, building 3 could have been established and once again perfectly north-south directed. In the meantime buildings 1 and 2 had been turned over a certain NW angle. Again the earth crust… still shifting.

D. The buildings 1, 2 and 3 have turned a whole lot to the NW. Building 1 is the oldest and has shifted over the largest angle, the most recent building has the smallest NW orientation. At that point the earth crust was no longer shifting, it stopped. The buildings or sites that have been added after the earth crust had stopped are nowadays still perfectly aligned with the (current) artic pole.
