So I was looking through some old newspaper articles and I found this one,

The daily union. [volume] (Washington [D.C.]) 1845-1857, June 07, 1849, Image 2 « Chronicling America « Library of Congress (loc.gov)


In it is an article called polarity of rocks. In the article it states a theory about how all the continents drift northward about 19 seconds a year which equates to 1919 feet per year. It claims this accounts for the precession of the equinoxes. I hadn't heard this one before so I thought I would introduce it. not sure what I think of it yet as I havent had time to look into how it would work; but I did find it interesting.
