When the English came, there was enough to please the queen and many greedy people who got rich, exploiting the native, but one of those “Authorized travelers to the center of the earth” made a terrible mistake violating the motto of their secret, and told the foreigners the entrance place.
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.
In 1846 the discovery of an extinct woolly mammoth frozen in ice in Siberia was used by Marshall Gardner as evidence of a hollow earth. Gardner subscribed to the single-sun-inside-the-earth theory and suggested that the mammoth was so well-preserved because it had died recently. Gardner thought that mammoths and other extinct creatures wandered freely in the interior of the earth. This one had wandered outside by using the hole at the North Pole, then was frozen and carried to Siberia on an ice flow.
He toured the US with a handmade wooden globe that opened out to reveal its secret layers. Converts, in ever increasing numbers, began petitioning the government to finance his adventures. On March 7 1822 Senator Richard Thompson presented a case to Congress that Symmes be supplied with “the equipment of two vessels of 250 to 300 tons for the expedition, and the granting of such other aid as Government may deem requisite”.
Cluff was so convinced in the theory that the Earth is hollow that he arranged a trip to the core of the hollow earth in 2007. He wanted to search for the North Pole’s entrance from Russia with an “icebreaker ship.” The expedition was $20,000 (£15,000) per head. However, it was canceled before they took off.
Also in 1927 the City of Richmond dedicated the Richard Evelyn Byrd Flying Field, now Richmond International Airport, in Henrico County, Virginia. Byrd’s Fairchild FC-2W2, NX8006, “Stars And Stripes” is on display at the Virginia Aviation Museum located on the north side of the airport, on loan from the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. He was a 1929 recipient of the Langley Gold Medal from the Smithsonian Institution.
An adage of note? “Nothing is impossible? Highly improbable! But never impossible. I’ve read a limited amount on the “Middle earth Theories” and yet (is an amazing theory) I still remain skeptical. (Yes I know not another skeptic?) . My father used to lecture on UFO’s … and took a great interest in the Paranormal. An example(interesting theory if you could call it that) What is the fastest speed there is, and just how fast is that? The speed of thought? You think of a place to be! And you’re there? Regardless of the distance? It is instantaneous? It would certainly out date the Speed of Light? As for middle earth, Hollow? I was “led to believe” the center of the earth is molten larva” Again, anything can be explained …. I was told way back in the mid, to late 50’s, as we laid on our backs late evening. Staring up at the clear, star clustered sky. The Milky way, amazing. The odd shooting star would speed across the night, then peter out (make a wish before it dies out?) then there were “Distant lights”!! that traversed the heavens, so minute ..as though it were a star itself, but moved at rather fast speed. Usually from west to east? Never, East to west? then there were those that traveled from south to North? Never North to South. At an unusually fast speed probably 30 to 40 seconds to traverse the night sky before it disappeared. Never a vapor trail. We watched sometimes through binoculars, awkward needed a steady hand?? There are those that will try to explain, and ridicule what I and my brothers and sister saw, including my mother and father. I’ve always adopted the thought, Don’t tell me what I saw, as not being real. Many explanations were thrown into the conversation, I will still hold my own firm beliefs, until proven otherwise So Middle Earth! that would be an interesting conversation. Did Captain Byrd actually fly across the north pole? I think I read once that he was doing geological studies. Checking Meteorological sites and recording data … then his aircraft disappeared off radar and out of radio range? for a period of time. Not sure where I read that, it was a few years ago now, on the net. I could have that wrong. With recent ?? discoveries regarding what appears to be the remnants of building, structures, below the antarctic ice … and deep at that. Technology is certainly throwing a few “cat among the pigeons” on a whole range of perceived Historical facts. Interesting, really very interesting. ….. James
After their return to the United States, an elaborate dinner in their honor in New York City on July 19. Byrd and Noville were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross by Secretary of the Navy Curtis D. Wilbur at the dinner. Acosta and Balchen did not receive the Distinguished Flying Cross because at that time it could only be awarded to members of the armed services and not to civilians.
Jeremiah Reynolds also delivered lectures on the “Hollow Earth” and argued for an expedition. Reynolds went on an expedition to Antarctica himself but missed joining the Great U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842, even though that venture was a result of his agitation.
In 1937, a four engine prop plane with seasoned flyers attempted to cross the Arctic from Moscow to Fairbanks, Alaska, and were lost in the vicinity of the pole. Most likely they accidentally entered the North Polar Opening into Our Hollow Earth and then just decided to stay in the land of Eden rather than return. Review the case of the Lost Soviet Flyers here.
The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting a Gold Star in lieu of a Second Award of the Legion of Merit to Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd Jr. (NSN: 0–7918), United States Navy, for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services to the Government of the United States as Confidential Advisor to the Commander in Chief, United States Fleet and Chief of Naval Operations from March 26, 1942 to May 10, 1942, August 14, 1942 to August 26, 1943, and from December 6, 1943 to October 1, 1945. In the performance of his duty Rear Admiral Byrd served in the Navy Department and in various areas outside the continental limits of the United States, employed on special missions on the fighting fronts in Europe and the Pacific. In all assignments his thoroughness, attention to detail, keen discernment, professional judgment and zeal produced highly successful results. His wise counsel, sound advice and foresight in planning constituted a material contribution to the war effort and to the success of the United States Navy. The performance of duty of Rear Admiral Byrd was at all times in keeping with the highest traditions and reflected credit upon himself and the United States Naval Service. General Orders: Board Serial 176P00 (February 4, 1946)
Several twentieth-century German writers, including Peter Bender, Johannes Lang, Karl Neupert, and Fritz Braut, 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 pointing infrared cameras up at the sky.

Read an interesting article, in Meridian online magazine, A Volcanic Highway for the Lost Tribes? by John P. Pratt, who is a Ph.D. in astronomy and a specialist in ancient chronology and calendars. One of the suggestions in his article is that the highway that the scriptures say the Lost Tribes will throw up in the midst of the Arctic Ocean might be a mono-rail train — is an idea I suggested in my chapter on The Land of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel — Found! Norwegian explorer Olaf Jansen and Admiral Richard E. Byrd both reported that the people of Our Hollow Earth have advanced mono-rail train system technology — which I believe they will use to expand the political Kingdom of God from within to outer earth in the not too distant future.
“My conception of the Hollow Earth, based on my research is that the shell of the Earth is about 800 miles thick, from the outside to the inner surface,” says Rodney Cluff, author of World Top Secret: Our Earth IS Hollow. He went even further in our phone conversation: half the planet is taken up by surface weight, and then there’s empty space, and then, something else. “Suspended in the center of that hollow is an interior sun that is divided by day and night sides,” he says, “The other part of the Hollow Earth theory is that near the North and South pole are substantial openings that lead into the interior.”
In May, 2007, a baby mammoth was found on the Yamal peninsula of Russia. This peninsula is the closest land to my estimate of the location of the North Polar Opening that leads into inner earth. The Norwegian fisherman, Olaf Jansen, in his book, The Smoky God, claimed that these mammoths live today on the inner continent, and that in winter, some wander near the frozen river mouths and fall into crevasses in the ice and are instantly frozen. Come summer when our outer sun shines through the polar opening, these rivers thaw out and the icebergs are pushed out to sea with their frozen carcasses. These later drift up on the Siberian shores.
The Hollow Earth theory is a pseudoscientific belief and conspiracy theory stating that the Earth is propagated by people whose skulls are hollow. Theories include that the inhabitants of the “Inner Earth” walk around the inside feet-up,[notes 1] or that a smaller sphere is inside the larger (sometimes it is stated this object works like a sun for the inner Earth denizens), which is more in line with the theory of gravity, though not geology.
Even after Symmes’ death his idea continued to thrive amongst believers. Students and admirers of Symmes’ work, and even Symmes’ own son continued to publish materials explaining the increasingly odd theory.
A book by a “Dr. Raymond Bernard” which appeared in 1964, The Hollow Earth, exemplifies the idea of UFOs coming from inside the earth, and adds the idea that the Ring Nebula proves the existence of hollow worlds, as well as speculation on the fate of Atlantis and the origin of flying saucers. An article by Martin Gardner revealed that Walter Siegmeister used the pseudonym “Bernard”, but not until the 1989 publishing of Walter Kafton-Minkel’s Subterranean Worlds: 100,000 Years of Dragons, Dwarfs, the Dead, Lost Races & UFOs from Inside the Earth did the full story of Bernard/Siegmeister become well known.
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.
3/3/2012. Listen to the interview of Foster Gamble with John B. Wells on Coast to Coast AM concerning his excellent documentary Thrive, in which he explains how our world is controlled by a global elite who want to eliminate 90% of the world’s population. In his video Thrive, Foster Gamble explains that there is a better way, one in which the people of earth can thrive and have abundance. And it is all based on his discovery that abundance systems emanate from an energy pattern called a torus (a donut shape), which is, in fact, the shape of our hollow earth, as well as all bodies in space.
After all his years in contact with the Venusians, Howard Menger also came to the conclusion that the ether of space exists and can be controlled with electrostatic forces, which he used to build a model flying saucer, and later helped a special government and industry sponsored team in Colorado Springs to build a 3 man size flying saucer. In his book, the HIGH BRIDGE INCIDENT – The Story Behind the Story, Howard Menger includes several illustration pages showing that gravity is a push from space and that the ocean tides rise because the moon comes up and shields the inflowing ether into the earth allowing the tides to rise while everywhere else the inflowing ether pushes the surface of the ocean down. The ether of space flows into the Sun, and electromagnetic energy flows out in a continuous cycle. The same happens on earth, but to a lesser extent. As the ether accelerates into the earth it causes a pressure that gives the effect of gravity keeping our feet firmly planted on the surface. The same happens on the inner surface of our hollow earth. Ether flowing into the inner surface keeps the inner earth inhabitant’s feet firmly planted on the inner surface — not floating around in zero gravity as the text books claim. Ether flowing into the sides of the polar openings keep the Arctic ocean surface attached to the sides of the opening, which allowed explorer Olaf Jansen to sail his little fishing boat through leads in the ice through the North Polar Opening in 1829 and Admiral Richard E. Byrd to fly his airplane through the polar opening in 1947 when he visited the people of the hollow earth.
Admiral Byrd actually referred to Antarctica as “The Land of Everlasting Mystery”. He once wrote: “I’d like to see that land beyond the (North) Pole. That area beyond the Pole is the Center of the Great Unknown.”
Rodney also tells the story of one German man, Karl Unger, who made it into the Hollow Earth during World War II. He wrote a letter back to his pals on the outer Earth to tell them he had asked the Hollow Earth inhabitants for asylum, which was granted. You can read the full letter here.
De Camp and Ley also claim that Sir John Leslie expanded on Euler’s idea, suggesting two central suns named Pluto and Proserpine (this was unrelated to the dwarf planet Pluto, which was discovered and named some time later). Leslie did propose a hollow Earth in his 1829 Elements of Natural Philosophy (pp. 449Ð453), but does not mention interior suns.
NEQUA or The Problem of the Ages, first serialized in a newspaper printed in Topeka, Kansas in 1900 and considered an early feminist utopian novel, mentions John Cleves Symmes’ theory as an explanation for the hollow Earth they sail into.
The Hollow Earth was also theorized by William Reed in his 1906 book The Phantom of The Poles. Based on his studies of early Arctic explorations and scientific evidence, he wrote that the Earth is not solid as widely believed, but hollow with openings at both ends. In the summary of his revolutionary theory, Reed states: “The Earth is hollow. The Poles, so long sought, are phantoms. There are openings at the northern and southern extremities. In the interior are vast continents, oceans, mountains and rivers. Vegetable and animal life are evident in this New World and it is probably peopled by races unknown to dwellers on the Earth’s surface.”
Admiral Richard E. Byrd of the United States Navy flew to the North Pole in 1926 and over the South Pole in 1929. He referred to Antarctica as “The Land of Everlasting Mystery”. In reference to the North Pole he wrote: “I’d like to see that land beyond the North Pole, it is the Center of the Great Unknown.”
The curvature of a hollow planet would be such that radio waves could bounce around it almost ad infinitum until they lost their strength. The fact that the time delays of these radio signals varied so much seem to suggest that these waves were bouncing around inside a hollow cavity.
In my book, I conclude that the Ether of space is the underlying foundational premise of the Unified Field Theory. It is the prime construct of the universe. Everything is made of it. It’s ever constant flow into the earth holds us to the planet. It governs the motions of both solar systems and the electrons orbiting the nucleus of atoms, their magnetic fields, electrostatic and centrifugal forces. It is the force of inertia. The ether is a tenuous etheric substance or spiritual gas that fills the universe. It gives life to all things. It is the medium that the communication of prayer uses to transmit messages. It’s resistance to the passage of light is what gives light a speed limit. It is the “Light of Christ” that fills every soul to give us life and understanding. It is the Power of God which he uses to govern the universe. The acceleration of the ether into the shell of the planet is what keeps our feet firmly planted on the surface of the planet. It’s acceleration into the inner surface equally keeps those that live on the interior surface of our hollow earth with their feet firmly planted on the inner surface. However, the acceleration of gravity into the opposite side of the hollow earth and the interior sun do decrease the weight of a person standing on the inner surface by somewhat more than 1/3rd of our outer surface gravity.
This alternative arena for reality comes from the Dutch theoretical physicist Erik Verlinde who, in 2011, derived Newton’s model of gravitation from other first principles or fundamental truths in physics. So why is Verlinde’s rediscovery of a three-centuries-old model a big deal? Because gravitation itself is a first principle, and thus should not be derivable from other laws. Whether we think of gravitation as mass attracting mass, or as mass warping spacetime, the fact of gravitation cannot be reduced to anything simpler. As such, it should not be possible to rediscover it from other, disparate areas of physics. This would be like deducing the US Constitution from the Swiss Federal Constitution.
Edmund Halley was a brilliant English astronomer whose mathematical calculations pinpointed the return of the comet that bears his name. Halley was fascinated by the earth’s magnetic field. He noticed the direction of the field varied slightly over time and the only way he could account for this was there existed not one, but several, magnetic fields. Halley came to believe that the Earth was hollow and within it was a second sphere with another field. In fact, to account for all the variations in the field, Halley finally proposed that the Earth was composed of some four spheres, each nestled inside another.
The idea as also used by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the creator of Tarzan, in a series of novels beginning with “At the Earth’s Core” (1914). Using a mechanical drill, his heroes discover a prehistoric world 500 miles below the surface. Lit by an inner sun, this inner earth is called “Pellucidar” due to the constant light of the unsetting inner sun. There is also an inner moon which creates a “Land of the Dreadful Shadow” by blocking the light of the inner sun for a portion of Pellucidar. Burroughs also makes use of the idea of openings at the poles, and has zeppelins travel to the interior of the earth via these openings. There are seven novels in the “Pellucidar”series.
While Byrd continues his story, he pauses to say that the rest of it is written by memory, unlike the hourly log that describes the craft’s landing in the inner Earth. He even mentions that the beings there summoned him to the center after the atomic bombs of World War II awakened their interest in surface humans.

The mirages seen of land in the far north from all around the Arctic prove that land does exist. As Jan Lamprecht explained so well in his book, mirages of land usually show an upside down image of the land in the sky, but sometimes when the conditions are right, another upright image has been seen at times above the upside down image beneath it. In these mirages of land seen around the Arctic, the warm air rising up out of the Polar Opening is reflecting the land within the Polar Opening which is the Inner Continent of Our Hollow Earth. What explorers are seeing is not the first up-side down image, which is obscured beneath the horizon within the Polar Opening, but the right side up image above it that extends just above the horizon within the sight of the observers. The North Polar Opening with its Inner Continent halfway through the opening does exist, but since the time of MacMillan’s Crocker Land Expedition, it has become a World Top Secret, or considered a non-existent will-o’-the-wisp as MacMillan called it.
The idea of a hollow Earth is a very common element of fiction, appearing as early as Ludvig Holberg’s 1741 novel Nicolai Klimii iter subterraneum (Niels Klim’s Underground Travels), in which Nicolai Klim falls through a cave while spelunking and spends several years living on both a smaller globe within and the inside of the outer shell.
Hollow Earth Theories always propose a central sun, aliens, and mythical subterranean cities and civilizations that some believe could link science and pseudoscience if physically discovered. Glaciers at both the Arctic and Antarctic regions are melting down at an accelerated rate, which will reveal the truth behind this mystery and its metaphoric connections to other creation myths in the story of humanity’s journey on plant Earth.
