Continuing the series on Planet X and 2012, one of the main claims of what will actually happen is termed a ‚ÄúPole Shift.‚ÄĚ Sounds scary, huh? The Earth‚Äôs pole(s) ‚Ä¶ shifting!?
But what does it actually mean? Well, Earth actually has two sets of North and South Poles ‚Äď the geographic and the magnetic. Most of the doomsdayers that I‚Äôve heard seem to imply that they are talking about a geographic pole shift, but some also talk about a magnetic pole shift. Since both are completely different, and since they are significant enough topics by themselves, I am doing separate posts on them. This one addresses the geographic pole, also known as the rotation axis.
There are actually a few different specific versions of this scenario that various doomsday folks have created. The one that I know the most about and will address in this post is that of Brent Miller, founding member of the ‚ÄúHorizon Project,‚ÄĚ and the statements that he has made on the November 10, 2008 and January 11, 2009 episodes of the Coast-to-Coast AM radio show. I am not going to use many quotes because there is no transcript for these shows and it‚Äôs an awful lot of typing and pausing and typing and pausing for me to supply a direct quote for each claim.
