Quite unexpectedly, I made an interesting discovery this past year. While using Google Earth to view several archaeological sites in Mexico that I hoped to visit during an upcoming trip, I noticed that most of the structures were not aligned to the cardinal directions – north, south, east, and west. This seemed strange, as most sites, even ancient ones such as the pyramids in Giza, are aligned, often with uncanny precision, to the North Pole.
In the 1950s, a college professor by the name of Charles Hapgood developed a theory to explain patterns of climate change as a result of shifts in the geographic position of the North Pole. Back in the days of my Mars research I remember learning about a site in Mexico that was thought to have once faced a previous location of the pole in Canada, just east of Hudson Bay, at least 15,000 years ago.
Hapgood hypothesized two other prior locations of the North Pole: one in Greenland 50,000 years ago and the other in Alaska around 80,000 years ago. I discovered that, with some relatively minor adjustments to Hapgood’s pole locations, the sites in Mexico, as well as numerous others throughout the world, seemed to line up to past positions of the North Pole. The alignments became even more interesting when I realized that these sites had to be as old as the poles. But how could that be? Humans, or more precisely “modern humans,” could not have built these structures, given that, according to genetic evidence, our ancestors had not yet left Africa.
If modern humans didn’t build these structures, then who did? Aliens? There had to be a better, more scientifically acceptable alternative…
