Hello, I've recently wondered a bit why is the pole reversal so popular among doomsayers and conspiration theorists. I mean a magnetic field reversal which happens overnight because of:
- Planet X and its comets tail close encounter
- A tremendous sun flare
- A cloud of gas or dust travelling through the galaxy and hitting us every11,500 years
- An asteroid
- Planetary alignment
- Something else
- Just so
What is more, the doomsayers usually claim that the pole shift will cause the Earth to stop spinning and then start again but in opposite direction (and of course that happened 11,500 years ago resulting in a 90% or 99% extinction). I don't know what is their view on evolution and fossil records, because from my understanding only bacterias would servive such a thing and the continents would liquidate.
The slowly fading Earth's magnetic field, global warming, each eartquake and hurricane is always a proof for their claims.
Anyway, was it the almighty Edgar Cayce ("the most brilliant mind of our times") who invented it? I heard that it was to happen between 1958 and 1998 according to him. I could name you a few followers of his idea: Patrick Geryl, Nancy Lieder, John Major Jenkins, some Hindu prophets etc. The date of this event is of course 2012, because it somehow didn't manage to happen before.
Sure there are conspiracy theories to support that claim. If you somehow missed it, NASA is gathering paper books in a bunker in Rocky Mountains I could give you link if you're intersted.
Anyway, what I tend to say is... well, I don't know. What do you think about that?
