so saith danny <calyk@aol>:
: [...] Also, many people, including scientists and researchers, believe
: that there will be a pole shift on that day, in which the pole will shift
: on its axis with antarctica going to the equator. There's lots of stuff
: to back up this theory, such as there being trees on antarctica

Continental drift wasn't built in a day.
Does anybody know (a) when Antarctica reached the pole, and
(b) when the world was last warm enough for the poles to be ice-free?

: and the ancient egyptians saying that the sun used to rise in the west.

Tolkien says so too, so it must be true.

: [...] But the main thing is the shift in consciousness it will bring.

Of course.

Dad tells me that somebody did a simulation of planetary motion over
the eons, and found that a planet's axis varies chaotically UNLESS
the planet has a large moon!
