Every time I try to get off this computer, something pulls me right back!
Because of my interests involving Atlantis, I’ve written a lot about Charles Hapgood here on my blog. For those who’ve forgotten, Charles Hapgood was a professor of anthropology in New England. By the time 1982 rolled around he was already retired for sixteen years.
He was 78 and preparing for the end of his life. Hapgood’s research and work has been monumental to the field, and some of the works he was more famous for writing were, Earth’s Shifting Crust (1958) and The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (1966).
Hapgood was on a personal quest to discover Atlantis, and throughout his life, he made some major discoveries and he came up with some major theories. What he was beginning to understand had the ability to change everything we knew about our world.
Without getting to deep into it, it was about the earth’s crust, and the position of continents at different points throughout our long history. Major stuff!
Anyway, in 1982 Hapgood wrote to a man named Rand Flem-Ath to share what he found during his years of study concerning ancient civilizations.
“There is evidence that the last displacement of the crust moved both American Continents (North and South America) southward by about 30 degrees, and absolutely devastated the life on them..
‘Furthermore, in recent existing discoveries I believe I have convincing evidence of a whole cycle of Civilization in America and Antarctica, suggesting advanced levels of science that may go back 100,000 years…
In this letter in 1982, that’s what Hapgood wrote to Rand Flem-Ath. And Hapgood, was a man who collaborated with Albert Einstein! He knew his shit.
Flem-Ath as you can imagine, was excited beyond himself and replied immediately. For weeks there was no reply. Finally, Flem-Ath’s letter was returned with a stamp that said deceased.
Wow! Immediately, I said to myself, that was no coincidence, and now, I have a little more evidence and a better understanding of the mood of that conversation.
Charles Hapgood, in November of 1982, was reaching out to Flem-Ath in desperation. Hapgood was a man at the end of his life. Unless he put his findings in the hands of a younger person who could build off of what he started and advance his original ideas, his life’s work would be meaningless. Ultimately, he would die in vain.
Think about that.
On a rainy night in December, Hapgood stepped off of a curb and was hit by a car. He died in a hospital three days later. December. That’s a month after writing that letter to Flem-Ath.
Doesn’t that seem a little coincidental? I thought so, and that’s all I knew at the time I wrote the post here on Nooz Buffet.
This is what I discovered this morning.
Hapgood was a personal friend of President Roosevelt. Through mutual friends, Hapgood was able to set up a meeting with then President, JFK at the White House. Charles Hapgood met with President Kennedy in October of 1963 to ask the President if he could lend him an aircraft carrier because he wanted to investigate the seabed under the Rocks of Saint Paul and Saint Peter.
This was in October of 1963! Hapgood never got his answer because JFK was assassinated in November.
That’s two deaths now over the span of 19 years. Hapgood then went to Nelson Rockefeller, but was turned down. For the next 10 years, Hapgood concentrated on his studies.
In 1973, again, he was looking for funds to explore and prove his theories. Ivan Sanderson was another friend of his who at one time, met with Walt Disney. He was the next option, but Sanderson died of brain cancer in 1973.
After Sanderson died in 1973, Hapgood wrote to a correspondent that although he knew the site of Atlantis lay around the Rocks of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, he was abandoning the quest and he could only hope others would follow up the trail he so laboriously laid.
Is it far-fetched to link the assassination JFK to the death of Charles Hapgood nineteen years later?
Hapgood meets with JFK and JFK gets killed a month later. In an act of desperation, Hapgood writes to Rand Flem-Ath to carry his legacy, and Hapgood dies a month later.
