Or is it? A while back Lymerick has posted a link to a webpage under a sensationalist title:
“Earth's Axis has changed/Planet X theory not viable for axis change/Axis Angle reversion….. (numerous excellent articles and image overlays)”. http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=22486
Which open minded researcher would not want to know the truth about an actual geographic axis shift that is capable to erase all life on earth if a big shift happens in a short time interval?
I suppose many people are confused about the meaning of “axis shift” because there are two completely different earth axes. One is the geographical axis around which the earth is rotating; and there is the magnetic axis which does not coincide with the geographical axis. The magnetic axis is an imaginary straight line that connects the magnetic south pole of the earth with the magnetic north pole.
There has been an avalanche of articles coming out in the latest years about the magnetic axis shift (or pole shift) showing on maps the trajectory of the magnetic north pole movement towards Russia and its acceleration. Many have also warned about a possible magnetic axis flip-over which has already happened many times in history, as the archaeologists/geologists have found. This magnetic axis shift is not a hoax; it is measurable, especially if you live at higher latitudes closer to the pole. The shift has also caused havoc with the navigation system of aviation, and the flight controllers had to revise the parameters in their systems to compensate for the shift. The possibility of a complete magnetic pole reversal also can not be excluded.
However, the consequences of a magnetic axis shift are insignificant in comparison to the consequences of a geographic axis shift. If the geographic axis would change its angle of inclination fast enough, everybody and everything on earth would experience an acceleration or deceleration force, and huge worldwide tsunamis and earthquakes would cause much damage. However, since the earth is a huge axial-symmetric gyroscope, the tsunamis would occur symmetrically on both sides of the earth, or uniformly over most of the ocean surfaces. For example if the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami would have been caused by a sudden geographical axis shift, then a similar tsunami of same strength should have happened at the same time on the opposite side of the earth in the pacific ocean near Ecuador. But this was not the case, so any theorizing that it was caused by an axis shift if false.
If a geographical axis shift would happen slowly during a long time period, then that could happen without spectacular catastrophic consequences, but then the climate would change. Some places with warm climate would cool down and vice verse. Locations with permanent snow and ice would change places. But first and foremost, everybody could observe and measure for themselves that the length and direction of the shadow say at solar noon would be different than before (or different than normal).
The author of the blog at https://axischange.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/simple-solar-measurement-guidelines/comment-page-1/ claims that such axis shift has happened and expects a “death wobble” to happen soon. So I have sacrificed some time to have a dialog with him via comments on his blog; performed my own measurements of the solar elevation, and from that calculated the solar declination and axis tilt angle. Then collected some historical records of these parameters used in navigation and confirmed that no detectable geographical axis shift has happened. Not now and not even during our lifetimes so far. His blog is a pile of disinformation and mock-science (he claims to be a scientist who was invited to an important international meeting of scientists in connection of a government cover-up). But when I asked him what field of science is his profession or expertise, then he declined to reveal it. Well, well, well…
If you want to see a hoax busted in real time please go to the link:
and read my comments (user name: morpheusnotes) below his article and his responses (before he takes it down to hide the truth). Another hoax busted. I only wish if the agents at RMN would post links to articles that they themselves believe (except if they post it by declaring it to be a hoax according to their knowledge or at least gut feeling). Also it would be great if there would be more Hoaxbusters around here who would help others with less discerning power (and/or less free time) to show what is obvious disinformation, and what may have some truth behind it.
