2012 Pole Shift

Posted by End Of The World Predictions on December 18, 2012 at 1:05 AM

What is a Pole Shift?  What causes it?  Are we in danger?


There are two main theories.

1.  One belief here is that the earth’s MAGNETIC north and south poles (not the physical north and south poles) will suddenly change position so that north becomes south and south becomes north.  While scientists say there will be no SUDDEN magnetic pole shift, they do believe that slow magnetic pole shifts do happen.  However, they also say that a change in the position of the magnetic force field surrounding the earth will not cause any catastrophes on earth.   They believe magnetic pole shifts happen because of the movement of the molten iron in the earth’s core.  


Scientists from NASA say magnetic pole shifts have happened before and that we are in the middle of a magnetic pole shift now - but it will take 1,000 to 10,000 years to complete.  What will happen as a result of this magnetic pole shift?  The biggest effect will be that we will have to change our compasses in a few 100 years.  At that time, our planets magnetic field around the earth will still be here and it will still protect us from solar storms from the sun.


2.  Another pole shift theory is that the earth’s outer surface will rotate around the core of the earth – a rapid shift in the physical locations of the north and south poles.  Charles Hapgood suggested this could happen if there was an extra build up of ice on one or both of the poles and that this could cause the outer surface of the earth to slip over its outer core like an orange peel sliding around over the inner flesh of the orange.  


Hapgood wrote about this in his books, The Earth’s Shifting Crust (1958 ) and Path Of The Pole (1970).  However, Hapgood later agreed with Albert Einstein that the weight of the polar ice would not be enough to cause polar shift.  Even though he couldn’t prove it, he then said that it would be forces below the earth’s surface that could cause a pole shift.


Later, Richard W. Noone one wrote "5/5/2000, ICE: The Ultimate Disaster".  In it he said that there would be a cataclysmic shift of the Antarctica ice cap caused by planetary alignment.  This would result in solar storms an there would be a shifting of the earth’s outer crust on May 5 2000.  I never happened.

Edgar Cayce predicted a sudden magnetic pole shift in the 1997-1998 winter. For this to happen suddenly it would require an enormous amount of energy to go against the spin of the earth on it's axis - as it spins like a gyroscope.  And, it would result in large scale disturbances of the earth's crust as well as it's oceans resulting in world wide tidal waves (not just a tsunami) volcanic and tectnoic activity (ie. earthquakes).  There was no sudden pole shift at this time!


Scientists now believe that something called true polar wander may have happened in the past.  They say that the earth’s poles have wondered up to 30 degrees before but there that there has never been a sudden pole shift.  They believe that at these times, when the poles may have wondered, it would have been as slow as 1 degree every million years!  [note: while we do not believe the earth is millions of years old, we accept that if there were to be a pole shift that current evidence suggests it will take a long long lonnnnnng time to happen]  


So if there was to be a physical pole shift, current scientific thinking on this is that it would not happen suddenly.  Not even with a partial planetary alignment (there has never been a fully planetary alignment – see our blog on planetary alignment).   But what about Nibiru?  Could the arrival of Nibiru cause a pole shift?  No!  Nibiru doesn’t exist. See our earlier blog on this.

It's 21-December where I am, and nothing has changed, my compass is still pointing north (towards the sun) which is also just the same as yesterday. I don't think anything is going to happen today.

I think it is amazing how people will make such incredible claims, like Richard Noone with his idea of a pole shift brought about by an ice build up on one of the poles tipping the earth and that this would be caused by planetary alignment. We know so much more about our solar system now and because of the planets orbits, it's not possible for them to align. It was never going to happen but people believe it nevertheless.

Well if NASA said then I guess we have nothing to fear about Dec 21st 2012 and the Mayan prophecy.

NASA says the universe is 30 billions of years old even though their $500 billion worth of studying over 50 years tells them it's not. So I wouldn't go putting eternal stock in what NASA says (Apparently the Mayan's live on the other side of the moon with Nostradamus and Elvis. But don't tell anyone.)

You know what I'd really like to see in all this doomsday talk about December 21 2012 and the end of the world, is someone looking at "what NASA says" or "what scientists believe" from a Christian/creationist point of view.

What I mean is if, as scientists say, the magnetic poles have shifted 30 degrees sometime in the past then it must have been because God wanted them to shift 30 degrees and He must have had a good reason for it shifting 30 degrees so why don't we try and discern the reason (based on solar flares and recalcitrant planets and all sorts of other stuff)?

Surely that would be more fun than sitting in your arm chair wondering if the world's going to end on the 21st New Zealand time or Hawaii time.

Even if there is a polar shift our GPSs should still be ok....but then again, the satellite themselves might have been severely disrupted by it....but then then again.....I don't think it is going to happen on 21 December anyway!

I think if Nibiru was real and was going to crash into us in a few days time...erm...we'd see it by now...better than we could see the moon even!!!!!

I think any pole reversals in the past would have been cause by a world wide flood. They say the 2003 earthquake the cause the tsunami made the entire earth move. Now imagine a world wide flood where the fountains of the deep cause a global earthquake and you can just imagine what happend

I've heard about the north and south pole swapping before. Apparently it has happened heaps of times in the past based on the various geological and ice core data.

Great article, helps to clear up between facts and rumours regarding this pole shift issue. Thanks for posting.

I'll get my compass out on 21-December (only 2 days to go!) and sit it on my desk to watch it happen.......which it won't

pole shift, magnetic field ?, Are we ready for what's coming ? Is Jesus everything to us? He promised a great falling away and great tribulation .

29 IMMEDIATELY AFTER the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Thanks for your article on the pole shift. Very informative.

Some people live in constant fear. When you become a Christian fear of the future wanes because we know who holds the future, and established the end from the beginning. If you would like to know how this works, message me.

Read Matthew 24 But even Jesus says there "be not troubled, the end is not yet" :)

So pls explain why all the natural disasters are happening more frequently at this time...
