The New Earth Crust Displacement Hypothesis
Gösta Lindwall, March 28, 2020
What happened at the end of the Ice age? Randall Carlson's work on the Channeled Scablands puts the finger on a huge climate change and cataclysmic effects on the landscape. Multiple papers on the Younger Dryas Impact Layer (YDIL) In North America, Chile and Europe, prove that remnants exist of a large cosmic impact 12,800 years ago.
The total effects of the climate changes after the cataclysmic event were many and far reaching, but was there also a dramatic change of the Earth itself as a result of the cosmic impact?
Charles Hapgood, in his Earth Crust Displacement Hypothesis, suggested a slow change of the pole position due to heavy ice sheets creating an imbalance, which gradually over thousands of years caused the earth crust to change position. This hypothesis has been dismissed, but could the same displacement have been caused by an external force like a comet impact?
Does the Ice sheet drilling samples support the hypothesis of an earth crust displacement? There was a huge drop in temperature between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. Maybe Greenland came closer to the North pole, and the same thing occurred at the opposite pole in Antarctica. Oceanographic changes could have occured after the event, like the Gulf stream warming the North Atlantic waters.
Magnetic pole shifts have occurred multiple times in geological time, and are well established in science. Is it also possible for entire sheets of tectonic plates or the entire earth crust to be physically pushed by an external force, causing a displacement in comparison to the inner mantle and spin axis?
Mark Carlottos' new model, that explains the alignments of greek temples, are relevant for such a hypothesis. He suggests that a large number of them are aligned with a former location of the North pole. Considering that dating of many ancient megalithic buildings are highly questioned, this is a strong argument for some kind of physical pole shift.
Multiple events that supposedly took place in the time frame around 12,800 year ago, could be a result of the cataclysmic event, and possibly have plausible explanations in such a hypothesis.
In North America, 50% of the megafauna was extinct at this time. When researching the YDIL, extinct remnants of the megafauna have been found under the ”Black Mat” layer, together with human Clovis findings and only the surviving species of mammals above the layer.
In Siberia very rapid freezing occured, which points to a sudden climate change.
A 400 feet world wide water rise has been proven as a fact, and if this was caused by the impact, an unbelievable amount of water was released over a short period of time.
Admiral Bird's expedition to Antarctica,in 1949, researched sediments and found facts pointing to an earlier warmer period.
Multiple archeological sites in South- and Central America seem to have been struck by a Tsunami, with huge amounts of sediment depositions. When archaeologist Leopold Batres excavated Teotihuacan, he needed to remove ten feet of soil from the Pyramid of the Sun. (Teotihuacan is supposed to have been established in 200 BC according to mainstream archaeology.)
Maps from the 1500s and 1600s show Antarctica without Ice sheets. One explanation for this anomaly is that they were made with help of earlier source maps, preserving a legacy from an earlier knowledge that lasted through generations of earlier source maps dating back to a time before the devastation.
