I agree the ice core data does seam to follow Hapgoods theory for crustal shift. Being in New Zealand I am familiar with recent research that showed the historic advance of Franz Josef Glacier about 12,000 years ago, that is sited in a lot of research as everdence of a concurrent ice age in the southern hemisphere, was in fact cause by a very large land slide that covered the ice with rock.

Hi All The NZ Press council has released their ruling on this issue. This is the headline from Radio New Zealand QuoteA Northland paper failed to validate claims by an amateur historian that a pre-European race of people settled New Zealand, the Press Council has ruled. Ewen Morris said this in his complaint. QuoteMr Morris went further. He referred to Messrs. Hilliam, Doutre and Bolt

Thank you for the reply My concern is that our NZ history is being cleansed of historical truths. I have found an ancient stone marked survey grid through NZ. This looks to predate the oral history of the Waitaha. Also I have Dr Peter Snows research on the Tapanui impact crater event of 1178. This is the south Island fire event that led to the Moa's extinction. I have added a few more

Well things are heating up! The fines have gone up to $NZ300,000 and the bloggers have joined in. Here's another link to news sources One blogger who gave Noel a "(Bad word) Award" says this about the remains being found in hangi pits. "Such an obvious contradiction. The Celts boiled their food in large cauldrons or roasted meat on a spit over a central fire. They didn’t

Academic v Amateur battle over pre NZ Maori history. Headline: "Man out to prove Māori not original settlers under investigation" Noel Hilliam claims a race of white Celtic settlers arrived 3000 years before Māori. This has been a known subject for some time. There are many authors here in New Zealand that has written books on this subject and I have written here on these forum

We are waiting for the big one here too. The southern Alpine fault is due, like your San Andreas. The problem is that they base their timings on the fault breaking under its own pressure every 300 or so years. Local NZ oral history tells of two meteoric impacts in the last 5 fault moves. One impact is the Taupo eruption, triggered by "a fiery waka from the sky" waka = canoe or vehic

Hi Lowelldw64 Back in June 2010 a volcano erupted in Chile. The ash from this volcano landed in the southern ocean. The following summer an algae growth was visible from space off Antarctica. The scientist that found this said it needed iron to grow and didn't know why it was there. A quick check of the polar current showed that where the algae was, was where the volcanic ash would be at t

Hi Idennyjr As someone in Christchurch New Zealand I've felt a few quakes of late. Of note for you; I have felt a good quake and others would not and vice versa. What I think happens is one side of the fault line moves violently and the other side gently. If you are on the violent side you feel it more than the other side. I have noticed this in more than one location with different faul

Hi Molder Here is a link to www.google.co.nz/maps/place/Tongatapu,+Tonga/@-21.1352839,-175.3449927,377. The rock is in the middle of the screen. What's the location for the other rock you found.

Hi All Some time back Gavin Menzies proposed that the Moeraki bloders here in New Zealand were man made from stone and cement by the Chinese for use as rolling ballast balls to raise sails. This is, I feel, disproved by the "Twin" bolders in the pic below. I sent this pic of mine to him. How I have found this report in the old newspapers from 1868 where they were crussing Moerak

Hi Avocat A feast of 600 cows would be an extream this to do unless the cows had been killed suddenly. The Orkney's location close to Iceland would provide a soarce of volcanic ash or gas that killed the cows while the people survived indoors or in caves. The loss of all their cows would end their time there. Just an Idea. Yours Owen

Hi Walter Here in new Zealand the Waitaha use the term "The Long Tides of the Stars". Its a great saying. They say they studyied them, while sitting in the Welcome Flat hot spring in South Westland.

Hi Laird I've listened to your Red Ice Radio podcast. In it you talk of Venus having an ion tail that is directed toward earth/ away from the sun. This ion tail should cause an aurora when the earth passes through it, if it is big enought. Such a predictable and regular aurora should have historic record and more so in older times when this tail was bigger. This maybe another place to look for V

Hi I enquiered about the books that Velicosky quoted for references to the Maori. There are only a couple of them left in libraries here in NZ. I will request them next week and have a look at what Velicosky is refering to. I have found that the older the history book the better the information. Things today are so influenced by politics, particuly here in NZ with regard to old history prior to

Hi Laird I have found some info on your book on the Dogon. I'll read that tonight. Have you read "Song of Waitaha" by Barry Brailsford. This is the oral histories of the Waitaha people, Barry is just the typest. In this the Waitaha tell us that they met on Waitangi ki Roto, Easter Island. Of interest here is that one of the there races, Urukehu, Moiriori and the third, that I can't re

Hi Laird I mentioned the 1178 metioric event in NZ on another post. Critics of this event, even the starting event, the sighting of the impact on the moon on 18 June, claim this never happened because they looked and could not find evedence of a large metior shower at that time in the usual places, Europe China Rome etc. They did not look in the Pacific where the event was recorded in the names

Hi Lairs Scanton and all A freind once asked me why I read the books I did. I was at the time reading Velikovsky's Worlds in collision. I told him that I could read a whole book and get one small thing out of it. This was the case with Worlds in Collision. Toward the end Velikovsky describes the veiw that people would get of the comet Venus as it passes close to Earth. He described a sickle, l

Thank You Thomas That was a very good explaination. With regard to Earthquakes, I agree wtih you regarding earthquakes and the Mayan date, no connection.

Hi Thomas I have read many books on 2012 and some have used December 23, not 21. I have aways associated this event as being on the 23rd and the 21st as just the soltice. Has the more commonly know solstice date taken over, in error, from the 23rd. date? Yours Owen Links that may interest you. They all use celestial allignments.

Hi David This is off topic here but I thought this might be interesting. Last year there was a large dust storm in Auzzie. When the dust settled in the Tasman Sea the nutrients caused a boom in planton grouth in ocean that is normaly stort of nutrients. They estimated that the CO2 locked into planton skelletons stored as much CO2 as was released in the earlier bush fires. It occures to me that

Hi David You may struggle to find a copy of Traegar's book. The copy I have found is/was? in the Chch central library Maori clollection. Two years ago I couldn't find it. The librarian in charge of the maori collection said they were having a cleanout and it was not the sort of book they wanted in the collection.

Hi David yes they likely do contain a lot more than one event. There is a lot on line when you start searching phrases. Another thing you would be interested in is Edward Treagar's book "The Ayrian Maori". In this he explores the orgins of the Maori lanuage and their stories of Taniwha's. He found a lot of Te Reo comes from Sanskrlt. Take Marama, our local moon, Ma = to measure and Ram

Hi David Please note that the translation on the web site I listed for Loud peals the thunder varries a lot from James Cowan's original. I trust Cowan's because he was walking and talking with the people he recorded these things from. I will try to find my copy of his original. I have had a data stick loss and some files were lost.

Thanks David Re Tera del Fergo, Lucus Bridges had a oral history of a tsunami passing through the straights that luckily left an island untouched. This was caused by the moon falling from the sky. The book by Bruce Masse looks interesting. I have read some of his work before regarding the 1178 impact. He found a waiata from Hawaii that lists the cheifs names and those for the time of 1178 were

Hi David In Gary Cook's book he list several sites where Arabic writing is carved in stone, including Pitcairn Island, telling the story of three admirals that were tasked with finding another way around the world to the Metterainian before the Suiz canel came to be. They ranged up and down the North and South Americian coast and failed. They wrote on Pitcairn on their return voiage, dated 225BC.

Hi David Interesting to see your blog on Ularu. I have for some time thought that Ularu is a man made structure as a marker pointing at something with its strata, a line of latatude from the old pole at Hudson Bay etc. The line of site survey grid I've found runs north south but the markers are alinged to the old pole, again Hudson Bay, as is Martins stone cirlce at Maunganui Bluff.
