By Immanuel Velikovsky
As Interpreted By Bob Barefoot
Clusters of North Pole positioning in the Mid South Pacific and in the region of China.
Note: The average position of the North Pole would be on the compromise line in the center of each cluster. As there are almost no locations between the clusters, the shifting must have happened quickly, as can be explained by the near collision of Venus with the Earth 3500 years ago.
(Assuming that the Africa/Asia land mass was in its current position with respect to the Americas – This was not the case)
Note: 3500 years ago the equator ran through Antarctica, Jakarta, China, Siberia, Greenland, Nova Scotia, and Brazil. This explains why fossils of equatorial animals and remnants of equatorial plants are found in these locations.
(Assuming that the Africa/Asia land mass was in its original position closer to the Americas –This was the case)
NOTE: The African/Asian land mass must have slipped 2200 miles farther apart after the Venus encounter. Before the encounter, this diagram shows that an area that is current-day New York was on the equator and that England and Spain were only a few hundred miles south of the equator. This explains the massive amount of equatorial animal bones found in these locations.
Greenland is only a few hundred miles south of the equator, explaining the equatorial vegetation found there. Atlantis is found a few hundred miles southwest of Spain in an Atlantic Ocean 700 feet lower than it's current level. Jerusalem was 2800 miles from the South Pole, in a climate much like today's Southern France.
