Symmes, John C. The Symmes theory of concentric spheres, demonstrating that the earth is hollow, habitable within, and widely open about the poles. Compiled by Americus Symmes from the writings of his father, Capt. John Cleves Symmes. [2d ed.] Louisville, Ky., Printed by Bradley & Gilbert, 1878  69 p. port.
As Russell’s teapot shows, unfalsifiable claims or models cannot be taken seriously. They are not science. Otherwise, anything goes – teapots, inside-out Earths, you name it. Russell’s conclusion is mirrored by ‘Hitchens’s razor’, an adage of the late writer Christopher Hitchens: ‘What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.’ Hitchens’s razor, of course, belongs in the same toolkit as Occam’s razor, the contention that the simplest, most parsimonious model is a criterion for deciding truth, and the blade that slashes away at Teed. Simpler models are easier to falsify, and thus more amicable to science. A simple model requires fewer data to falsify it, while a complicated model requires more.
Could there be a race of beings living inside our planet, zipping around in flying saucers and withholding tomes of wisdom until our kind are ready to receive it? Could Admiral Byrd really have encountered them on his now-famed 1947 expedition? Could Santa Claus actually be an inner-earth inhabitant, sent around the world bearing gifts once a year as a gesture of goodwill between cultures?
The Flat Earth theory has had a lot of media coverage in recent months. Flat-Earthers fiercely believe that our lovely planet is, in fact, flat and that there’s a huge multi-organisational cover-up to keep us in the dark.
— a former senior aerospace executive – a person who has been aware since the 1970s that the Ballistic Missile Defense Program would be used to target extraterrestrial objects in space – even though there is no evidence of any credible threat from these craft – has joined Project Disclosure of CSETI, The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence.
Dallas Thompson was a former personal trainer who had spent his youth in Hawaii but now lived in Bakersfield, California. His life had changed forever following a terrible accident, five years earlier. He’d been driving along Highway 58 during heavy rain when his car had aquaplaned, spinning four times, only to plunge backwards down a 250ft drop.
On January 20, 1915, Richard married Marie Donaldson Ames (d. 1974). He would later name a region of Antarctic land he discovered “Marie Byrd Land” after her. They had four children – Richard Evelyn Byrd III, Evelyn Bolling Byrd Clarke, Katharine Agnes Byrd Breyer, and Helen Byrd Stabler. By late 1924, the Byrd family moved into a large brownstone at 9 Brimmer Street in Boston’s fashionable Beacon Hill neighborhood that had been purchased by Marie’s father, a wealthy industrialist. It would be Byrd’s primary residence for the rest of his life. Noted naval historian Samuel Eliot Morison also lived on Brimmer Street.
A genetics akin to reptiles, these are highly advanced entities but viewed as being of a negative, hostile or dangerous disposition since they regard humans as a totally inferior race. They would perceive us much the way we would perceive a herd of cattle. They are carnivorous in regard to humans. They are believed to exist on several planets, one being Nibiri.
PASADENA, Calif. — An international team of astronomers has discovered that Neptune’s south pole is much hotter than the rest of the planet. In fact, the same has been discovered on many other planets including our own. There exists an anomalous source of heat at the poles. This is exactly what we would expect if all the planets are hollow with interior suns shinning out through polar openings. Read more here.
Admiral Richard E. Byrd was an early-20th century adventurer and explorer. He was an intrepid fellow, and if anyone could have made it to some kind of inner Earth it was him. Understanding a little more about Admiral Byrd, and the time in which he lived, might help us to understand a bit more about exactly what may have happened to him.
11/4/2015. A 2010 scientific paper by Nassim Haramein, The Schwarzschild Proton, provides confirmation to my theory of Gravity which I included in the ebook version of my book. My paper on gravity is titled, The Origin, Cause and Control of Gravity — Found!. In my study of the hollow earth, I came to the conclusion that the hollow earth requires a revision in gravity theory because the orthodox scientific theory of gravity claims that everywhere inside a hollow planet there would be zero gravity. Yet my research on the hollow earth theory requires that the interior surface of our hollow planet has a surface gravity somewhat less than our outer surface gravity, but it is NOT zero. People that have been to our hollow earth, report that their feet are as firmly planted on the inner surface as our feet are planted on our outer surface. In my gravity paper, I arrived at an estimated inner surface gravity at the equator of 608.78 cm/sec2, which is 37.92% less gravity than our surface gravity. So if you weigh 100 lbs here on the outer surface of the planet, on the inner surface you would weigh about 62 lbs, or about 2/5ths less, which is more than 1/3rd less.
Several twentieth-century German writers, including Peter Bender, Johannes Lang, Karl Neupert, and Fritz Braun, published works advocating the hollow Earth hypothesis, or Hohlweltlehre. It has even been reported, although apparently without historical documentation, that Adolf Hitler was influenced by concave hollow-Earth ideas and sent an expedition in an unsuccessful attempt to spy on the British fleet by aiming infrared cameras up into the sky (Wagner, 1999).
Admiral Byrd was one of the most highly decorated officers in the history of the United States Navy. He is possibly the only individual to receive the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, Distinguished Flying Cross and the Silver Life Saving Medal. He also was one of a very few individuals to receive all three Antarctic expedition medals issued for expeditions prior to the Second World War.
While expeditions into inner Earth happened before Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s time, it is Admiral Byrd’s theory about Hollow Earth that has stood the test of time. He built his theory on the “facts” offered by earlier theorists, astronomers, astrologers, physicists, and mathematicians – some even famous enough you might recognize their names (Halley, of Halley’s Comet fame, anyone?).
8/19/2011. Our Voyage to Our Hollow Earth expedition under the leadership of Steve Currey was cancelled upon his death in July 2006 and all monies returned to expedition members. However, expedition members expressed the desire to continue the quest. Physicist Dr. Brooks Agnew offered to become our new expedition leader and the Currey expedition members voted “Yes” to that offer. Dr. Brooks Agnew subsequently renamed the expedition the North Pole Inner Earth Expedition, and has been working ever since to raise the money to fund it.
Among most believers, the inside of the Hollow Earth is a lush tropical paradise that very likely houses an advanced race of humans/aliens/giants. In most scenarios, the inhabitants are the descendants of ancient races such as the Lemurians or, as in Cluff’s view, the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, guided there through the North polar opening by God himself. No matter where they come from, they are generally characterized as peace-loving, and advanced far beyond our own. “They have flying saucer technology. They live lives of perfect health for hundreds of years. Their science is much more advanced because they live much longer lives,” says Cluff.
Byrd was an active Freemason. He became a member of Federal Lodge No. 1, Washington, D.C. on March 19, 1921 and affiliated with Kane Lodge No. 454, New York City, September 18, 1928. He was a member of National Sojourners Chapter No. 3 at Washington. In 1930, Byrd was awarded a gold medal by the Kane Lodge.
Byrd’s third expedition was his first one on which he had the official backing of the U.S. government. The project included extensive studies of geology, biology, meteorology and exploration. Within a few months, in March 1940, Byrd was recalled to active duty in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. The expedition continued in Antarctica without him.
It is thought that the many cataclysms and wars that took place on the surface drove these ancient people underground, according to “Secrets of the Subterranean Cities: “Consider the lengthy Atlantean-Lemurian war and the power of thermonuclear weaponry that eventually sank and destroyed these two highly advanced civilizations. The Sahara, the Gobi, the Australian Outback and the deserts of the U.S. are but a few examples of the devastation that resulted. The sub-cities were created as refuges for the people and as safe havens for sacred records, teachings and technologies that were cherished by these ancient cultures.”
Verne may have been closer to that mark than most expected. For years scientists scoffed at the idea of life thriving underground without light to provide energy. Now explorations have found rock-eating bacteria living as far as a mile below the ground. In Romania a whole ecosystem, including spiders, scorpions, leeches and millipedes has been found in a cave cut off from the surface 5.5 million years ago.
The monument was erected in the 1840’s by Americus Symmes to mark the gravesite of his father. At the abandonment of Hamilton’s old burial ground, only the monument to Captain Symmes remained. It’s restoration in 1991 was a bicentennial Gift to the City of Hamilton from Historic Hamilton, Incorporated.
Science, of course, rejects a theory if a better one fits more of our observations, but why the egoistical obsession with our observations? A cosmic ray particle could use the very same scientific method we use and conclude that the Earth was, in fact, flat.
The wind which had begun to blow outside, it wasn’t an obstacle when they started the drop, but if they attempted it backwards, the turmoil of the whirlwind could drag them to the abysmal tunnel, and the corpse — battered about a thousand times — won’t stop until one day of path down the cave.
Mott goes on to allege that Thompson “lifted entire pages and paragraphs from my earlier book, Caverns, Cauldrons and Concealed Creatures”. These were serious allegations. Could this be the truth behind Thompson’s evaporation?
In the summer of 1947, the hollow earth government sent their flying saucers out to outer earth to make sure we do not use nuclear weapons again. Our military were placed on orders to shoot the flying saucers down. Since the hollow earth nation is a peaceful people, our military does not fear any retaliation for shooting their spacecraft out of the air. They know the hollow earth nation is the political Kingdom of God and will not retaliate, even though they have defended their homeland from invasion. Also, the military wanted to know how the flying saucers work so they could back engineer the technology of the flying saucers and the androids that fly them. This they have done in super secret deep black unacknowledged underground projects using trillions of dollars that even the Congress cannot account for.
The epitome of pseudoscience fantasy, Hohlwelttheorie shrinks billions of light years of mostly empty space – strewn with 100 billion galaxies and 1 million billion billion stars – down to a tiny point at the centre of the hollow-Earth Universe. While Hohlwelttheorie might sound utterly indefensible, a second quixotic mathematician from Alexandria – Mostafa A Abdelkader – has risen to the challenge. In the 1980s, Abdelkader described the mathematical gymnastics needed to conceive an inside-out cosmos. Among other assumptions, this geometric inversion trades the centre of the Earth with infinity. Imagine, if you will, cutting a seam in a basketball. As you turn the rubber inside-out, everything outside the ball – you, the room you’re in, the entire Universe – is sucked inside. The air that was previously inside the ball now forms an atmosphere outside the ball extending towards infinity. Et voilà! A once-humble basketball now contains the Universe. While this verbal analogy is imprecise, the abstract mathematics of Abdelkader’s paper accomplishes this transformation accurately. To embrace it, convince yourself that ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ are as arbitrary as left and right, or up and down.
Many Hollow Earth believers allege UFOs come from inside our planet, not another galaxy. They are vehicles piloted by inner-earth inhabitants, who make an appearance on our turf only occasionally. They come from a place where mammoths still roam, and glowing cities flourish. The Northern Lights are, in fact, reflections of those city lights off of the atmosphere.
I recall that R.J. said he arrived in Arizona after departing from his home in Inner Earth. Whether he came through the Secret Valley near Tucson (as suggested above as an entry point), I will never know. I regret not having asked him more questions about the mysteries of the world he claims he originated from. It will forever have me wondering…
Also, as I had concluded in Chapter 8 of my book, the angels told Phoebe that the Sun is a giant crystal. Scientists, on the other hand, claim the Sun is entirely gaseous. But if it is hollow and has a shell thickness 10% of its planetary diameter, that would give the Sun’s shell a density of 2.9 gm/cc, and so would have a solid surface! Glass has a density of 2.6 gm/cc. And it’s not hot inside as scientists claim either, but a nice warmth is provided for the celestial city suspended within the Sun’s hollow interior.

When he returned to the United States from the Arctic, Byrd became a national hero. Congress passed a special act on December 21, 1926, promoting him to the rank of commander and awarding both him and Floyd Bennett the Medal of Honor. Bennett was promoted to the warrant officer rank of Machinist. Byrd and Bennett were presented with Tiffany Cross versions of the Medal of Honor on March 5, 1927, at the White House by President Calvin Coolidge. The widespread acclaim from the flight enabled Byrd to secure funding for the subsequent attempt to fly over the South Pole.
In Native American mythology, it is said that the ancestors of the Mandan people in ancient times emerged from a subterranean land through a cave at the north side of the Missouri River. There is also a tale about a tunnel in the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona near Cedar Creek which is said to lead inside the Earth to a land inhabited by a mysterious tribe. It is also the belief of the tribes of the Iroquois that their ancient ancestors emerged from a subterranean world inside the Earth. The elders of the Hopi people believe that a Sipapu entrance in the Grand Canyon exists which leads to the underworld.
To Verlinde, the dark-matter story sounds familiar. In 1859, the French astronomer Urbain Le Verrier described an anomaly in the orbit of the planet Mercury. Newton’s laws do not entirely explain the gradual repositioning (called ‘precession’) of the planet’s egg-shaped orbit. To make sense of the situation, Le Verrier hypothesised the existence of an unseen planet orbiting close to the Sun. Dubbed Vulcan, the gravitational influence of this extra mass would explain Le Verrier’s anomaly by perturbing Mercury’s orbit, thus reconciling Mercury’s orbital precession with Newton’s laws. Vulcan, of course, was never discovered. General relativity explained Mercury’s orbital precession in 1915, eliminating the need for any such model.
