POLE SHIFT HYPOTHESIS by James Edward Sved
I am working on a new hypothesis about the arrival of homo sapien sapien (Humans) in the Americas. I have long believed that the Clovis Paradigm, which claims that ancient Siberian hunters chased mastodon across the North American glacier and arrived, by accident, in North America 13,000 years ago, is a bunch of bunk. It seems unlikely that primitive, nomadic hunters with no significant clothing or shoes to protect them from glacial temperatures could survive crossing the much larger, icier polar cap of that era. According to Clovis, they would have encountered significantly sub-zero temperatures from approximately North Korea to New Mexico, walking on-foot.
With ancient sites in South America more than 20,000-24,000 years old, it seems much more likely that ancient Asians and Polynesians island-hopped their way to South America 25,000 years ago.
How is this possible? Pole shift. Currently, Earth's poles wobble between approximately 22 and 24 degrees. When you consider the location of the North American glacier prior to the melting 20,000-12,000 years ago, it seems likely that the "North Pole" used to be almost 10 degrees closer to Canada. What would this do to Antarctica? It would put it more in the temperate locale of, say, New Zealand - not entirely and perpetually frozen, and not covered with Ice.
In my scenario, with sea levels considerably lower than they are today (120 Meters), the aforementioned ancients could have paddled from island to island (There were many more islands above-water then), walked across a section of Antarctica, and right onto South America. There may have even been a civilization living on Antarctica, before the current axial configuration became the norm.
What could shift the Earth's axis by 10 degrees? Meteor impact. Between 40,000 and 20,000 years ago, there were several large impacts on North America (and just off the Atlantic coast) alone, which could account for axial deflection.
There is scientific evidence to support this theory. The melting glacier of Antarctica may well soon begin to reveal archaeological evidence to support this. Undersea discoveries of long-forgotten cities which were once on dry land further supports this hypothesis.
Where is the archaeological evidence to support this theory? At the bottom of our oceans. You see, if humans first arrived in the Americas before the melting of the North American Glacier, their oldest settlements would have been consumed by the ocean, during the 120m sea level rise we know to have occurred.
