As Interpreted By Bob Barefoot
NOTE: Just days after Earth’s encounter with Venus, the North Pole slid 8000 miles from the mid south Pacific to Japan. Siberia, which just days before had been hundreds of miles from the equator, was now just hundreds of miles from the North Pole. This explains why thousands of equatorial animals, such as elephants, are found today frozen intact in the ice. At this time the equator can be seen a thousand miles to the south of Australia.
Note: Just days after Earth’s encounter with Venus, the North Pole slid 8000 miles from the mid south Pacific to Japan and the equator ran through the Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Detroit, Montreal, and Newfoundland. This caused the glaciers that had been covering North America to begin to melt.
Note: This picture show the equator just hundreds of miles south of England, going through Spain and crossing over to Liberia, Egypt, Ethiopia and then running a few hundred miles north of Madagascar. This explains why equatorial animal bones, such as elephants and rhinoceros are found in such abundance in England.
Note: This picture shows how the Earth looked when the North Pole was in Japan. Over the next 700 years, several near collisions between Earth and Mars moved the North Pole 8000 miles to its current location. Note that Jerusalem at this time was only a few hundred miles from the equator.
