    Think the polar slip coincides with the end of the Mayan calender in 2012?

    If you would wear your aluminum foil helmet, these alien mind probes wouldn't be able to affect you. :grin:

    While the magnetic poles are subject to geomagnetic reversal from time to time and have been recorded in the rocks, there is no evidence at all to support that the earth's pole of rotation have ever shifted, only lonely theories.

    The spinning earth is a immense gyroscope and the forces that it would take to reverse its poles of rotation would be so huge as to break up the planet entirely. A small amount of wobble is normal in any rotating object and the earth is no different. Proven polar wandering due this this natural wobble is less than 1 degree.

    I will be happy to sell polar shift insurance to anyone who feels that the world will end in 2012. Plus a free bottle of snake oil and a case of country sausage, dahlin"!

    So when the magnetic poles shift, is there any cause for concern, or are people getting these two ideas confused?

    Ok I was on a different level of thinking.

    I'm not talking about the earth changing directions but the earth shifting on its axis.

    To wear Alaska would be near the equator.

    It does have something to do with the Mayan calander though, thats what I was watching on the Science channel.

    It said that every 25,800 years the Earth wobbles GREATLY and basically changes the axis of the poles.

    The diagram they used was one the should Alsaka and much of the Southwest US on the Equator. I guess I would say if you are looking at the globe as a flat photo rotate it until Alsaka would be the new middle.

    It said that the cycle of the wobble was 25,800 years and that in 2012 it would complete its cycle that it is in right now. They backed it up with some pretty conclusive sceintic data thats why I posed the question.

    They also threw in there about the Earth, Sun and Black Hole of the Milky Way lining up as well in 2012, and that PLUS the shift could be what the Mayans were talking about but that is more theroy then anything.

    but both the mayan calendar AND nostradamus say the world will end in 2012.

    I thought Nostradamus was claiming the end would be sometime around 2000.
