"It is theorized that the magnetic pole shift can only occur if Earth actually stops rotating and reverses direction. Although this has been referenced in ancient literature, it is an event that few can imagine and one which most scientists would claim is impossible. If it does occur, this means the centrifugal force on the surface of Earth will go from 1670 kph to zero and then back up to 1670 kph in the opposite direction."
Is this how the Maori got from North-West Africa, to their current location?
