Sunspots and Pole Problems
So if the apocalypse is set just in time for holiday shopping season threeyears from now, how exactly will the world end? One theory that actuallyhas some traction in the scientific community is that a solar flare will causea sudden shift in the magnetic orientation of the Earth's poles, causing allkinds of planetary problems like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. NASAis predicting strong solar activity around 2012 and there's evidence that themagnetic poles are slowly weakening, something that reportedly presagesa reversal. Of course, most scientists think that this reversal will takecenturies, not days, to occur.So how does Roland Emmerich end the world in his upcoming epic"2012"? "Pole reversal," he said in an interview this week. "All kinds of stuff going on. But it's basically major earthquakes and volcano eruptions whichkind of cause this global flood.""We found this obscure theory of 'Earth crust displacement,' written in the'50s by someone called Professor Hapgood. Albert Einstein wrote theforeword to his book. It pretty much [says] every X number of years thewhole Earth's crust shifts, all together. We thought that that was a greatunderlining theory that can explain why there can be a flood."And what is the director going to do in preparation for that fated date?When asked he said, "I'm a pretty down to earth guy. Even [though] I mademovies about aliens, I don't believe in aliens. And I don't believe that theworld will come to an end in 2012, but it's a great scenario."To get a peek at the devastation Emmerich is bringing to the screen in"2012," which he says has more visual effects than any of his previousfilms, watch the exclusive trailer below.
The Bast TheoryPreludeThere are two obvious camps whenever Ancient Mysteries are debated - those thatcite a lack of hard physical evidence, and those that trust their instincts. Primeexamples are the pyramids and flood myths. These were
phenomenons inancient times, and the similarities appear obvious to the layman, which is why so
