North American Glaciation

Cyclic catastrophism, the subject of this blog, has been refined to explain how dozens of global features were caused by cyclic encounters with the other terrestrial planets in the last 6,000 years.  One such feature is the enormous Laurentide continental glacier which was centered in North America (Canada).  Its multiple accumulations and meltings formed the current landforms of well into the the northern latitudes of the  United States - including the creation of the worlds largest reservoir of fresh water, the Great Lakes.  This enormous glacier, illustrated in the figure, is estimated to have attained an elevation of more than 9,000 feet at its summit.  This great weight depressed the lithosphere, in central Canada west of Hudson Bay, more than a thousand feet. The slow rising of the lithosphere to its original elevation, known as isostatic recovery, is still proceeding at a rate of 4.3 feet per century, and is still depressed some 150 meters below its isostatic equilibrium elevation.

Paleontologists believe that this enormous continental glacier was emplaced during the 'ice age', the Pliestocene  epoch, dated some 21,000 years ago.  Based upon stratigraphic and geomorphic studies, they hypothesize  a 'complex sequence' of late Wisconsinan ice advances and retreats of the ice sheet.  However, the glaciation is no longer present and each advance does not modify the dates of of the rocks or soil over which they advance and retreat.  They have concluded that there were "a number of cycles of advance and retreat", but because the geographical limits of each advance were very similar, it is virtually impossible to number them. The fact that a number of advances, hypothesized to be several thousands of years apart, reach the same extremes in Wisconsin, is in itself an indicator of a much closer time relationship between them.

Cyclic Catastrophism
The enormous mass and extent of the Laurentide glacier, its circular symmetry, the location of its origin ~3.500 km from the north pole and its cyclic advances and retreats to exactly the same geographical limits are all consistent with the proposed cyclic catastrophism scenario.  In this scenario priori-Mars (Mars still had its solid core, Mercury) was repeatedly captured in a geostationary orbit tidally linked to the Tibetan-Himalayan complex, specifically over the sacred Mt. Kailas, "Indra's Home on Earth".  This massive moment forced the entire rigid outer shell (lithosphere) of the Earth to rotate as a single unit about a different axis, the north end of which was located in what is now central Canada.  The liquid outer core of the Earth, known as the asthenosphere (the weak layer) acted as a bearing, leaving the rotation of the mantle and solid core, and thus the magnetic field of the Earth, unchanged.  A slight independent rotation of the two is an accepted fact, even today.
 The most pertinent aspect of this configuration was that the spin axis of the outer shell in Canada remained perpendicular to the plane of the solar system because the massive moment of priori-Mars remained in that plane.  As a result, this area received no direct sunlight for 14.4 year periods, the duration of each planetary encounter, then returned to its normal seasonal exposure for the following 15.6 years.  This 30-year cycle was repeated ninety-nine times, from 3700 to 687 BC.  Thus, the Laurentide glacier grew steadily for 14.4 years, thereby attaining its enormous symmetrical extent and then slowly retreated for the next 15.6 years when the normal seasons, summer and winter resumed.  As a result, the glacier barely had time to melt before the next cycle began. The orientation of the Earth during each encounter with priori-Mars is confirmed in the Indo-Iranian Avesta which states that the presence of Angra Mainu (their name for Mars) made the world (the Himalayas) hotter.

These short cycles are incomprehensible to Earth scientists who, bound by the uniformitarian ideas of Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin, believe that all geological processes are extremely gradual and therefore interpret most of the data concerning glaciation in terms of millions of years.  However, the fact that isostatic rebound is still occurring in the Hudson Bay area has forced some of them to suggest a more recent date, about 13,000 years ago, for the  last glaciation.  Even this is a radical step, since the canonical, accepted time for complete isostatic recovery is only 10,000 years.  The proposed cyclic catastrophism scenario the Laurentide glacier began its final retreat only 2,700 years ago (687 BC).  This explains why the rebound is still occcuring.  At that date the outer shell of the Earth returned to its seasonal orientation where it remains to this day. In order to make the ongoing isostatic recovery at Hudson Bay fit the assumed 'ice age' date, geologists have created a new geological term, 'delayed isostatic recovery'.
One-day reorientations of the lithosphere, thereby the surface of the Earth at each capture and release of priori-Mars were recorded in the myths of a number of cultures and in the Bible. The two mentioned in the Bible corresponded with a sequential capture and escape of priori-Mars.  In the case of each escape, which would occur at a vernal equinox, the outer shell would  drift over the Middle East (thus the Pesach or Passover).  One reorientation coincided with the Lord's destruction of Sennecherib's Assyrian army of 185,000  men who held Jerusalem under seige when Hezekiah was king.  The destruction was caused by the blast of a thunderbolt (a discharge of the ionosphere to the Earth) caused by a large rock body which descended from priori-Mars, leaving the entire Assyrian army unmarked but dead.  Jehovah promised Hezekiah, through his prophet Isaiah, that he would destroy the Assyrian army, as follows (Isaiah 37 and 38):

And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.  And this shall be a sign unto thee from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that he hath spoken: Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down. Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold they were all dead corpses.

When the planets or features on their surfaces were mentioned in miracles, they were called archangels. In this miracle priori-Mars was called the 'angel of the Lord'.  The previous reorientation referred to the date of Ahaz, 14.4 years earlier.  The prophesied reorientation referred to a release of  priori-Mars, which occurred at the vernal equinox when the planet drifted over the middle east, restoring the Earth to its normal orientation, bringing the sun back to its previous position. Thus the entire process is simply and elegantly exemplified in two verses of the Bible.

Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
