Hilariously, Cluff and his supporters find the idea of a flat Earth to be a bad joke, and consider flat Earth believers to be the crazy ones. “I don’t know how the flat-Earthers can be so confused,” Cluff remarked. “They are obviously wrong. The world is not flat – it’s hollow. They reject all the evidence.”
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.
Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd Jr., USN (October 25, 1888 – March 11, 1957) was an American naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration. He was a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for valor given by the United States, and was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. Byrd claimed that his expeditions had been the first to reach both the North Pole and the South Pole by air. However, his claim to have reached the North Pole is disputed.
Edgar Allan Poe used the theme of the hollow earth in The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket (1838). Jules Verne wrote Journey to the Center of the Earth in 1864 and Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950), the creator of Martian adventures and Tarzan of the Apes, also wrote novels set in the hollow Earth. Legends often ignite the imagination of fiction writers and fiction often ignites the imagination of the pseudoscientist.
The Hollow Earth Theory has been around for a long time. While the first concepts were crude, this so-called ‘crazy’ idea has slowly been embraced as viable alternative to the solid Earth model and will soon be recognized as the truth. With today’s technology, many of our findings point towards a hollow structure as the only method to explain many of today’s scientific findings.
It would probably be an understatement to say that 2017 has been a weird year. Whether you pay attention to science, politics, entertainment, or sports — or all of it at once — you’ve probably noticed that things are just plain odd across the board. Well, get ready for one last head-scratcher, because a new conspiracy theory about our lovely planet is starting to take root, and it makes Flat Earth and chemtrail truthers look like totally thoughtful, reasonable people.
Cluff, for his part, tried to reach the Hollow Earth again. In 2003, he received an email from a man named Steve Currey who’d recently inherited his family’s travel firm that specialised in far-flung expeditions. Currey had once heard his father talking about the Hollow Earth and was familiar with Cluff’s book. They decided to plan a new trip.
Absolute certainty is never the benchmark for a scientific model. To be considered scientific, a model must make a prediction that can be supported by experiment later. To be successful, the experiment must verify this prediction. Only then does a scientist trust the model – but never fully. On this, Popper writes: ‘The game of science is, in principle, without end. He who decides one day that scientific statements do not call for any further test, and that they can be regarded as finally verified, retires from the game.’

In his very first declaration, Symmes proposed to mount an expedition to the North Pole, where he was sure they could locate one of these apertures, and gain access to the inner Earth. He too believed that the interior of the Earth not only could, but did support life, saying in Circular No. 1, that the inside of the Earth would be “stocked with thrifty vegetables and animals if not men.” Symmes believed that his theory was not science fiction, but science fact, and that it applied not only to the Earth, but too all planetary bodies. To him, the whole universe was hollow.
An entry has been published on the LDS Anarchist blog website by the blog moderator regarding his take on the Hollow Earth theory. He is right — there is a lot more evidence for the theory than you would at first think exists. The scientific, scriptural and historical evidence in support of the theory may even surprise you. You may even find that truth is often at times stranger than fiction! Of course, there will always be those that will assert that the hollow earth / hollow planets theory is just bs, but that’s just because they haven’t yet seen enough evidence. Many of their types also once believed the earth was flat, or that the sun, moon, and stars all revolve around the earth as they do indeed appear to do every day and night! It’s all in the perspective.
–Could someone anciently have had a faint recollection from some unknown scriptural writings of the actual location of the Lost Garden of Eden? This map shows the Lost Garden of Eden on a high mountain at the north pole. Or is this the map makers attempt to show the Lost Garden of Eden inside Our Hollow Earth looking through the north polar opening? The abundant waters that flow from the Garden of Eden divide into four rivers that flow to the four cardinal points of the compass.
1145 Hours- I am making a hasty last entry in the flight log. Several men are approaching on foot toward our aircraft. They are tall with blond hair. In the distance is a large shimmering city pulsating with rainbow hues of color. I do not know what is going to happen now, but I see no signs of weapons on those approaching. I hear now a voice ordering me by name to open the cargo door. I comply.
In recent decades, the idea has become a staple of the science fiction and adventure genres, appearing in print; in film, notably as the premise for the creatures in Kong: Skull Island; on television programs such as Sanctuary, where Hollow Earth formed the core of the story arcs of the third and fourth seasons; in comics; in role-playing games, such as the Hollow World Campaign Set for Dungeons & Dragons; in video games like Gears of War, where humans live on an Earth-like planet with a mostly hollow interior; and in many animated works, such as Torin’s Passage, where the hero must travel to the “lands below” to rescue his family.

De Camp and Ley have claimed (in their Lands Beyond) that Leonhard Euler also proposed a hollow-Earth idea, getting rid of multiple shells and postulating an interior sun 1000 km (600 miles) across to provide light to advanced inner-Earth civilization (but they provide no references). However in his Letters to a German princess Euler describes a thought experiment involving a patently solid Earth.
“Admiral Richard E. Byrd warned today that the United States should adopt measures of protection against the possibility of an invasion of the country by hostile planes coming from the polar regions. The admiral explained that he was not trying to scare anyone, but the cruel reality is that in case of a new war, the United States could be attacked by planes flying over one or both poles. This statement was made as part of a recapitulation of his own polar experience, in an exclusive interview with International News Service. Talking about the recently completed expedition, Byrd said that the most important result of his observations and discoveries is the potential effect that they have in relation to the security of the United States. The fantastic speed with which the world is shrinking – recalled the admiral – is one of the most important lessons learned during his recent Antarctic exploration. I have to warn my compatriots that the time has ended when we were able to take refuge in our isolation and rely on the certainty that the distances, the oceans, and the poles were a guarantee of safety.” 
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).
In 1928, Byrd began his first expedition to the Antarctic involving two ships and three airplanes: Byrd’s Flagship was the City of New York (a Norwegian sealing ship previously named Samson that had come into fame as a ship some claimed was in the vicinity of the RMS Titanic when the latter was sinking); a Ford Trimotor called the Floyd Bennett (named after the recently deceased pilot of Byrd’s previous expeditions) flown by Dean Smith; a Fairchild FC-2W2, NX8006, built 1928, named “Stars And Stripes” (now displayed at the Virginia Aviation Museum, on loan from the National Air and Space Museum); and a Fokker Universal monoplane called the Virginia (Byrd’s birth state). A base camp named “Little America” was constructed on the Ross Ice Shelf and scientific expeditions by snowshoe, dog-sled, snowmobile, and airplane began.
Program Description: Hi, my name is Jordan Leonard and I am the curator and live on-air host of the program Black Roots Radio, which airs every other Friday night from 6pm-8pm.The show thrusts jazz into an musically inclusive and social-politically conscious narrative. This show promotes jazz as an forever evolving genre that is a rooted in the Black American Experience. I manipulate the flow of the show, while narrating varies musical connections to other genres (like neo-soul,hip-hop, electronic, funk etc.), the atmosphere from which they are inspired, and articulate the work they do as pieces of art. I also report different jazz shows and happenings of Seattle, WA. For more information, content, and on air broadcast dates, go to: https://www.facebook.com/BlackRootsRadioJL Artwork by Randall Brown
Liquid water discovered near Mars south pole puzzles scientists studying the orbiting Mars Express radar returns of the Mars south polar ice cap. The satellite radar returns do not give surface data in an oval area around the pole because the satellite is not in exact polar orbit over the poles. Even on earth, polar orbiting satellites have to compensate for the loss of gravity over the polar openings. If Mars is hollow, and warm air comes up out of the south polar opening from its interior heated by an inner sun, liquid water near the south polar opening would be exactly what we would expect to find at certain times of the year. The ice found is estimated to be 90% pure, and there is enough of it that if melted could cover the entire planet up to 36 ft deep. The moisture that creates this ice comes from the planet’s interior — just as it does on earth. The 3-mile deep ice that covers Antarctica and the Greenland icepack come from warm moist air that blows up out of the interior of the earth through the polar openings and condenses onto the ice packs. This is the reason why it is warmer near the poles than some distance away from them.
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.
Accepting that the conflicting data in the typed report’s flight times indeed require both northward and southward ground speeds greater than the flight’s eighty-five mph airspeed, a Byrd defender posits a westerly-moving anti-cyclone that tailwind-boosted Byrd’s ground speed on both outward and inward legs, allowing the distance claimed to be covered in the time claimed (the theory is based on rejecting handwritten sextant data in favor of typewritten alleged dead-reckoning data). This suggestion has been challenged by Dennis Rawlins who adds that the sextant data in the long unavailable original official typewritten report are all expressed to 1″, a precision not possible on Navy sextants of 1926 and not the precision of the sextant data in Byrd’s diary for 1925 or the 1926 flight, which was normal (half or quarter of a minute of arc).
Please note that I am not just referring to the common imaginative kooks who obviously have something loose rattling around in their brains; but I am referring to serious study groups which are organized and staffed by
But our razors are not all perfect tools. When the number or specificity of assertions made by a model are unclear, Occam’s razor feels subjective. Is one scientist’s simplicity another scientist’s Gordian knot? Case in point, Abdelkader himself might have found simplicity in Hohlwelttheorie. By vanquishing those billions of light years of lifeless intergalactic void, Abdelkader saves us from the difficulty of believing in the fantastic vastness of the Universe and ‘the consequent reduction of the Earth to an infinitesimal’.
Both special relativity and Hohlwelttheorie destroy basic human assumptions: one successfully, the other unsuccessfully. Special relativity tells us that time and space are relative. Hohlwelttheorie tells us that we live inside the Earth. The rope that rescued special relativity is also the rope that hanged Hohlwelttheorie: Popper’s falsifiability criterion. Special relativity offers many possible falsifications, all of which have thus far survived experimental tests.
The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting a Gold Star in lieu of a Second Award of the Navy Distinguished Service Medal to Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd Jr. (NSN: 0–7918), United States Navy, for exceptionally meritorious and distinguished service in a position of great responsibility to the Government of the United States as Commanding Officer of the U.S. Antarctic Service. Rear Admiral Byrd did much toward the difficult task of organizing the expedition, which was accomplished in one fourth of the time generally necessary for such undertakings. In spite of a short operating season, he established two Antarctic bases 1,500 miles apart, where valuable scientific and economic investigations are now being carried on. With the U.S.S. BEAR, he penetrated unknown and dangerous seas where important discoveries were made; in addition to which he made four noteworthy flights, resulting in the discovery of new mountain ranges, islands, more than a hundred thousand square miles of area, a peninsula and 700 miles of hitherto unknown stretches of the Antarctic coast. The operations of the Antarctic Service have been a credit to the Government of the United States. His qualities of leadership and unselfish devotion to duty are in accordance with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

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.
To get to the bottom of things, look to the construction of models – simplified descriptions of reality that explain how variables change over time. A red point that we call Mars moves across the starry firmament. How do we explain this nightly variance? A model is needed. From antiquity to the scientific revolution, humanity’s model of Mars has evolved. To the Ancient Greeks, Mars was the wandering star of Ares, god of war. From this early perspective, in which astronomy and astrology had yet to diverge, Mars was a heavenly wanderer embodying the traits of a warlord deity. This explanation for the planet’s nightly motion, while a start, is less than satisfactory. A robust model is not merely a hand-wavy explanation but a mathematical description that accounts for all variance in the data. Specifically, why does Mars move slower than some planets and faster than others? And why does it occasionally reverse direction, a phenomenon known as retrograde motion, for a few months, only to loop back on itself in the original direction?
Believe it or not (spoiler: you probably won’t), a chunk of the population is now buying into the theory that the Earth is… hollow. And not only that, but they also believe that there’s a big hole near the North Pole that you can actually enter and explore the inside of the planet. Brace yourself, the weirdness isn’t over just yet.
8/20/2011. Terry Smith, the Alaskan bush pilot I was hoping could take people to the north pole, died in a plane crash August 9, 2010, I just learned. Terry had offered to take us to the coordinates we provided where we estimate the North Polar Opening is located. Our hearts go out to his wife Terri and their family. He will be missed.
He landed his craft, and spoke with a representative of the city of Agartha (referred to as Ariana in some accounts), who reprimanded him for humanity’s recent invention of the atomic bomb, and warned that a dark age is to come if humans don’t shape up. Byrd was sent on his way, with instructions to bring this message back to the surface people.
— Several images beamed back to earth from the Cassini space probe to Saturn show interesting anomalies that could be indications of hollow planets. For instance, look at what NASA calls a “sharply defined circular feature” at Saturn’s south pole.
Agnew, to prove this theory, since 2004, tried to organize a cruise to the North Pole with an ice pick . From this project, called North Pole Inner Earth Expedition ( NPIEE ), he also made into a film, a documentary and promotional organization for future implementation of the trip.
Genesis for the New Space Age, Secret Development of the Round Wing Plane, the Extra Terrestrials from Inside the Earth, and the Arrival of the Outer Terrestrials, is a book written by John B. Leith in 1980. I received it in manuscript form over a year ago, scanned it and put it in PDF format. But when I placed it up on the Internet, I was contacted by John’s son who informed me the manuscript was copyrighted. Sure enough, a search of the Copyright office returned a copyright, and I removed it at his request from my website. It is an interesting read. The copyright says it is the true story of the development of the Round Wing Plane. I have been informed that OneLight.com has it available now for sale.
Brazilian Indians, who live alongside the Parima River in Brazil, claim that their forefathers emerged in ancient times from an underground land, and that many of their ancestors still remained inside the Earth. Ancestors of the Inca supposedly came from underground caves which are located east of Cuzco, Peru.
After the war, Byrd’s expertise in aerial navigation resulted in his appointment to plan the flight path for the U.S. Navy’s 1919 transatlantic crossing. Of the three flying boats that attempted it, only Albert Read’s NC-4 aircraft completed the trip, becoming the first ever transatlantic flight.
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.
