Researchers have discovered evidence that Antarctica had a swampy rainforest 90,000 years ago thanks to sediment cores filled with pristine soil and root systems that preserved the plant cells.
there are so many times that the oral record got discounted and then evidence was found that it was true. So who knows really. For example the statues on Easter Island the locals said the statues walked there, then they found out that if you tie a rope to them you can literally walk the statues in a way. Or I forget the island they found gnome sized sapiens after dismissing the locals who said that humans and little people lived on the island.This is the kind of thing that makes the Biblical description of Genesis practically plausible.
Of course people can imagine any number of explanations, but the world as it exists today doesn't discount the written accounts.
Well, the axis is not fixed: it changes. Pole reversals have also happened.I wondered if the axis of the earth had changed.
