The Long-Forgotten Science of Polar Wandering (cont.)
By Kyle Bennett

During the twentieth century, the idea of rapid polar wandering turned up amongst the Nazis and their ideologues (see [here] for more details). The belief in a northerly, Arctic Aryan homeland was propounded by men like Herman Wirth in Der Aufgang der Menscheit (The Rise of Mankind, 1928). Wirth studied the work of Alfred Wegener – the creator of the theory of continental drift – and came to believe that the Arctic homeland of the Aryans flourished at a time when that region was much further south. None other than Alfred Rosenberg, author of the infamous and hugely influential The Myth of the Twentieth Century (1930s), was supportive of this belief in polar wandering. In this book Rosenberg states:

“The geologists show us a continent between North America and Europe, whose remains we can see today in Greenland and Iceland. They tell us that islands on the other side of the Far North (Novaia Zemlya) display former tide marks over 100 metres higher than today’s; they make it probable that the North Pole has wandered, and that a much milder climate once reigned in the present Arctic..”

This was the conclusion that Hugh Auchincloss Brown came to in the 1940s, in Cataclysms of the Earth. This was followed by Charles Hapgood in the 1950s, in Path of the Pole. The foresight of Sir John Evans in 1866 is truly amazing, and helps put into a proper historical context the oft-quoted remark of Albert Einstein regarding Hapgood’s theory of Earth Crust Displacement:

“I find your arguments very impressive and have the impression that your hypothesis is correct. One can hardly doubt that significant shifts of the crust of the earth have taken place repeatedly and within a short time.”

To repeat: “ can hardly doubt..”. This is the conclusion I come to in Polar Wandering and the Cycle of Ages [], based on the findings of up-to-date research by top geologists and climatologists. But the adoption of the idea by occultists – both by Nazis, and by later New-Agers – which has helped to discredit it, and given academic an easy excuse for ignoring it.

In recent times the ideas of scientists have been steadily converging with those of Hapgood. His ideas on long-term polar wandering are now accepted by many under the name True Polar Wander. Scientists are considering faster and faster, and more and more recent, movements of the polar axis upon the earth’s surface. A scientific revolution has been silently and steadily underway, and it is only a matter of time before the public becomes aware of the true history of polar wandering.
