Transcribed below is an article from The
Dallas Morning News in today's weekly science section. It
contains a perfect example of the fallacy of trying to explain
historical climate changes by traditional methods. The academic
scientific establishment is so blind to and afraid of the possibility
of catastrophic planetary changes in "recent times"
that their entire system of dating these events is flawed from
the outset. As Dr. Carl Sagan might have remarked sarcastically
to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky during the course of The Velikovsky
Affair, "There is no evidence of such catastrophes in recent
geologic time; they occurred MILLIONS and MILLIONS
of years ago!" Everybody is free to choose the "school"
in which he or she may wish to believe. I chose "Modern Catastrophism"
years ago, The Velikovskian School.
This recent evidence below can be explained
quite logically if one is aware of the theoretical possibility
of a Polar Pivotal Axis reaching from Cairo to Oceania, generating
Polar Pivotal Belts where North and South Polar Zones are periodically
located, as a result of the recurrent transits of the "custodial"
Planet Nibiru, the cyclical "Cosmic Tree".
If as both Dr. Velikovsky and I have suggested
the last North Pole was located in the North Atlantic Ocean, then
polar ice, other glaciation and permafrost would have extended
into northeastern North America, western Europe and Morocco. During
such a scenario, Haiti, Cuba and Florida would have been located
about the same distance from that North Pole as Anchorage and
St. Petersburg are located away from the present North Pole.
The Gulf of Mexico would naturally have been
much cooler, since it would have been equivalent geographically
to, say, that stretch of the current cold Pacific Ocean from Anchorage
to Seattle. Yucatán, Mexico, would have been situated about
the same distance from that North Pole as Oregon is from the current
Moreover, if the South Pole were located about
1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) off the Pacific coast of Mexico,
southwest of modern Acapulco, then the northeastern half of the
Gulf of Mexico would have been located just north of that South
Polar Zone, Miami and Havana again at about the same latitude
away, but in the south, as Anchorage is today in the north; and
the southwestern Gulf, southwestern Texas, all of Mexico and Central
America, the Galapagos Islands, and west-coastal Colombia and
Ecuador would have been within that South Polar Zone (permanent
ice to permafrost). Since West Texas was at one time under the
ocean, it is logical to assume that when the South Pole is located
off Acapulco and/or when the North Pole is located in the North
Atlantic Ocean, then Texas is underwater. That's my guess, at
least, for what it's worth.
Thus, this "new evidence" is perfectly
explainable by The Velikovskian School. As I have stated previously,
when a new theory is inherently true, all of the peripheral facts,
like this one, that come along the pipeline, will automatically
fall into place like clockwork. Except for the standard but flawed
establishment dating here, which Sagan would have supported, this
is a classic example.
Here is the article from today's Dallas News,
written by Science Editor Alexandra Witze. 23 October 2000.
Cold winters may have spelled the end for marine
critters living in the Gulf of Mexico 34 million years ago.
More than 90 percent of Gulf mollusks perished
at that time. So did many species that lived on land. Scientists
now have some of the first evidence that climate change snuffed
out these animals.
In last week's issue of "Nature",
researchers from the University of Michigan and Syracuse University
describe their work on "ear stones" from fossilized
fish. These natural structures accumulate layers of calcium carbonate
each year the fish lives.
Scientists can deduce the water temperature
-- down to seasonal changes -- by analyzing the ratios of chemical
elements in the ear stones.
Winter temperatures in the Gulf dropped 7 degrees
Fahrenheit 33.7 million years ago --- even though summer temperatures
remained roughly the same, the researchers reported. The drop
is consistent with other evidence that Earth's climate shifted
at this time from a greenhouse into an icehouse. Such a cold spell
could have caused the major extinction, they added.
As is mentioned elsewhere, the Flood of Noah
coincided with the arrival of the Planet Nibiru in the year 5187
BCE, or approximately 7,200 years ago. Thus, these "remnants
of human habitation" found under the Black Sea would correlate
with that "cosmic catastrophe", when the North Pole
shifted from the Mid-South Atlantic Ocean to the North Atlantic
and the Planet Nibiru "docked" as "Hyperborea"
until its departure in the year 4287 BCE.
Associated Press, 13 September 2000
WASHINGTON -- Artifacts found at the bottom
of the Black Sea provide new evidence that humans faced a great
flood, perhaps that of the biblical Noah, thousands of years ago,
the discoverers say.
Remnants of human habitation were found in
more than 300 feet of water about 12 miles off the coast of Turkey,
undersea explorer Robert Ballard said Tuesday.
"There's no doubt about it, it's an exciting
discovery," Mr. Ballard said from his research ship. "We
realize the broad significance the discovery has, and we're going
to do our best to learn more."
Fredrik Hiebert of the University of Pennsylvania,
chief archaeologist for the Black Sea project, said, "This
find represents the first concrete evidence for the occupation
of the Black Sea coast prior to its flooding."
Many ancient Middle Eastern cultures have legends
of a great flood, including the Bible story of Noah.
Columbia University researchers William Ryan
and Walter Pittman speculated in their 1997 book "Noah's
Flood" that when the European glaciers melted about 7,000
years ago, the Mediterranean Sea overflowed into what was then
a smaller freshwater lake to create the Black Sea.
Last year Mr. Ballard found indications of
an ancient coastline miles out from the current Black Sea coast.
His discovery provides evidence that people once lived in that
now inundated region.
Mr. Ballard, a National Geographic Society
explorer in residence, said he had studied shells found along
the ancient coastline and found two types. One group is an extinct
type of freshwater shell, and the second is from saltwater shellfish.
The saltwater shells date back 6,500 years,
while the freshwater shells all date to 7,000 years ago and more.
"So we know that there was a sudden and
dramatic change from a freshwater lake to a saltwater sea 7,000
years ago. And we know that as a result of that flood a vast amount
of land went underwater. And we now know that that land was inhabited.
What we don't know is who these people are, we don't know how
broad their settlements were ... but we're expanding our studies
to try to determine that," he said.
Mr. Ballard said his team, using remote-controlled
underwater vessels with cameras, found a former river valley beneath
the sea. In that valley was a collapsed structure, including some
preserved wooden beams that had been worked by hand.
The structure was "clearly built by humans"
and was characteristic of stone-age structures built 7,000 years
ago in the interior of Turkey, Mr. Ballard said.
It contained a stone chisel and two other stone
tools with holes drilled through them, he said.
The group is now mapping the site and looking
for other structures.
"This is a work in progress," Mr.
Ballard said. "It is critical to know the exact era of the
people who lived there, and to that end we hope to recover artifacts
and wood for carbon dating so we can figure out what sort of people
lived there and the nature of their tools."
The discovery occurred within Turkey's coastal
waters. Turkey has a representative on the research vessel.
Mr. Ballard, best known for finding the remains
of the ships Titanic, Bismarck and Yorktown, among other discoveries,
operates the Institute for Exploration in Mystic, Connecticut.
And here is a third recent news article about
a discovery off the coast of northern England. Undoubtedly this
submerged land used to be above sea-level during a previous Polar
Axial Alignment. This article was found on the Web and posted
to the Forteana Mailing List. The dates provided below are close
enough in "estimated time" to indicate that this catastrophe
was probably contemporaneous with the Black Sea evidence cited
Scientists say Britain has its own version
of Atlantis under the North Sea.
Ancient stone age communities were wiped out
by a series of floods which scientists say should act as a warning
about the dangers of global warming and rising sea levels.
Dr Ben Horton of Durham University's Sea Level
Research Unit said: "As our climate and oceans respond to
global warming , there will be potential for global sea level
rise on a massive scale."
He added: "Our investigations have revealed
for the first time that large areas of land can be flooded very
After the last ice age, melting ice caused
the southern half of the North Sea to rise by about 65ft over
2,000 years, leaving an area the size of Britain underwater.
The research team at Durham University has
discovered that Britain also suffered a series of shorter-term
floods which had disastrous effects on the human population.
Between 2,000 and 3,000 people at a time died
in the floods, with hunter-gatherer tribes more likely to live
near coastal and estuarine areas where food was more easily found.
Between 7,600BC and 5,900BC, around 1,000 square
miles of land in the North Sea region would have been flooded
by 15ft high tidal and storm surges, the scientists have found.
These natural disasters occurred on average four times each century.
Britain's land link to the continent was also
flooded, leaving the British Isles lagging thousands of years
behind in the rest of Europe in the development of weapons technology,
agriculture and architecture, the National Geographic reports.
Since first preparing this essay, I have run
across a couple of other news articles with additional information,
though not necessarily sea-evidence per se. I am including them
here for the record.
This first is a message that came in on the
Forteana List. In my theory of Polar
Axial Displacement, if the North Pole is located in the central
Indian Ocean and the South Pole is located off the coast of southwestern
Mexico, as I propose that it was from 15,987-12,387 BCE, then
the Equator would have gone right through Wales and southern England.
It all falls into place. But, of course, like Dr. Velikovsky,
we have to "shun" these "geological" dates
to make "history" seem "logical". One simply
cannot straddle the fence on these chronological issues.
A 300 million-year-old petrified forest has
been discovered at an open cast coal mining site.
Experts say the condition of the fossilised
forest, preserved in mud stone, makes it an extremely rare discovery.
Fragments of more than 40 trees and bushes
were uncovered at the Darrell opencast site in the Dulais Valley,
Nant-y-Cefn, South Wales.
Now experts are working against time to preserve
the find, which last saw daylight when South Wales was sited on
the equator and basked in a tropical climate.
They believe the forgotten tropical forest
was laid down at a time when the area was swampland which gradually
Cliff Patten, principal planning officer at
Neath and Port Talbot County Council, say the priority is to ensure
the forest is preserved before it can decompose.
"It was discovered about one month ago
and we have been looking at the best way preserve it since then.
This is an extremely rare find," he said.
"One idea is to encase it in resin so
it's protected from the elements. But at the moment the fossils
are exposed in part of a large open pit.
"The opencast site was given planning
permission on the condition that when all work is finished the
land is restored to its former use.
"It is a working mining operation which
does make things difficult. It cannot be left out in the open
indefinitely but there is no danger of immediate decomposition.

Pyramid Of Gold Guarded By Giants
Huge amounts of gold and silver treasure have been found in a
pyramid in northern Peru left by the long-vanished Moche civilisation.
Archaeologists also discovered remains of three of the tallest
people yet excavated in South America. They were six feet rather
than the average 4 ft 9ins and may have suffered from a growth
A three-year excavation by US scientists found three tombs in
the 105-foot high pyramid. Inside were ceramics, gold, silver,
textiles and murals.
One tomb contained the body of a young woman, believed to have
been sacrificed. The Moche were expert farmers who flourished
in the desert plain between the Andes and the Pacific from 100
to 800 AD.

ROME -- Near the ruins of Pompeii, archaeologists
have found another, far-older abandoned settlement, unearthing
the remains of buildings, canals and ornate tools from more than
2,500 years ago.
Italian scientists and the Culture Ministry
at a news conference Thursday announced details of excavations
at the ancient riverside port at Poggiomarino, six miles northeast
of Pompeii in southern Italy.
The site was discovered two years ago during
the construction of a water purification plant.
Like ancient Pompeii -- a Roman city destroyed
in 79 by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius -- this town was also abandoned
because of natural disaster: a flood in the 6th century B.C.
The 17-acre settlement was founded in about
1500 B.C. on the River Sarno, and as many as 1,000 people lived
Archaeologists described it as a "Bronze
Age Venice". Like that northeastern, canal-based lagoon city,
this too was constructed on marshy islands -- perhaps to prevent
invaders from storming their city.
"In that period, all the important ports
sprang up along rivers a little distance from the sea, to avoid
pirate attacks," prehistorian professor Renato Peroni said
at the news conference.
Excavations have yielded traces of horseshoe-shaped
stone and wood foundations, part of a canoe carved from a tree
trunk, and ornate amber broaches and bronze and iron tools.
The above dates fit quite nicely into the Velikovskian
Reconstruction. Further explanation would be redundant.
