We all know that the earth can be divided into three main layers: the core, the mantle and the crust. Each of these layers can be further subdivided and so on.
Or is it, what if I tell you that everything you studied, in your early Geography classes were nothing more than a popular theory based on certain hypothesis and not a proven fact will you be shocked.
The reality is that establishing and determining an actual geophysical model of our planet earth’s interior is a considerable challenge, even with our given technological growth and advancements in science one might thing that determining the earth’s core might be significantly simple, but it’s not. The earth’s core is one of the most inaccessible parts of our planet and we have only penetrated around eight miles out of the approximate 4000.
Of course, the hollow earth theory isn’t a new thing is article is a collection of certain hints that might indicate some merits, so I encourage everyone to keep an open mind and judge for yourself.
1. A vast ocean inside the earth
In 2014 scientists, have discovered that a vast reservoir of water, enough to fill the Earth’s oceans three times over, may be trapped hundreds of miles beneath the surface. According to the researchers the water is locked up in a mineral called ringwoodite about 660km (400 miles) beneath the crust of the Earth. Geophysicist Steve Jacobsen from Northwestern University in the US said the discovery suggested Earth’s water may have come from within, driven to the surface by geological activity, rather than being deposited by icy comets hitting the forming planet as held by the prevailing theories.
2. Halley’s Hollow Earth Theory
Now you might think people who believe in the hollow earth theory are a bunch of conspiracy theorist, but you will be surprise to know that a great amount of French and English scientists supported this theory for example Edmond Halley. If the name sounds familiar to you it is because he was the scientist who is best known for predicting the orbit of the Halley’s comet. Halley noticed that the earth’s magnetic field is rather unpredictable with its lines shifting from year to year and he believed it’s because if the earth’s hollowness. According to Halley we are standing on the outermost shell three more concentric shells within and as the poles of these inner shells that affect our magnetic field and makes it so unpredictable. He also suggested that each of the shells is capable of supporting life.
3. Leonhard Euler’s Speculations
Leonhard Euler was a Swiss mathematician and a physicist a man considered one of the greatest mathematician of all time with more than 1000 publications. He also believed that the earth was not only completely hollow but also had a 600-mile diameter sun in the center, the hollow interior he said could be reached through holes at the north and south poles (NASA images have spotted huge holes at both the poles). The gravitation pull of the sun is responsible for the gravity that we experience on the surface of the earth.
4. Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd’s Statement
Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd was a recipient of the Medal of Honor was a pioneering American aviator and polar explorer. A man who leads an expedition across the Atlantic ocean and claims the glory of reaching both the poles first by air. He records in his diary an opening in while flying over the north pole and also recorded in great details how he saw lakes, river green vegetation and even a living mammoth. He also claims to have greeted by a flying machine, who said was an inhabitant of Agartha (sometimes Agartta, Agharti or Agarttha) is a legendary city that is said to reside in the Earth’s core. And also, express his concerns with humans making Nuclear weapons and the overall well-being of the planet due to humanity was affecting it. The interesting fact was this incident was recorded in 1926 and the world was still unaware about nuclear weapons till America dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 1945.
5. The green children of Woolpit
The legend of the green children of Woolpit concerns two children of unusual skin color who reportedly appeared in the village of Woolpit in Suffolk, England, sometime in the 12th century. The children, brother and sister, were of generally normal appearance except for the green color of their skin. There cloths were made of unfamiliar material. They spoke in an unknown language, and the only food they would eat was beans. Eventually they learned to eat other food and lost their green pallor, but the boy was sickly and died soon after he and his sister were baptized. The girl adjusted to her new life, after she learned to speak English, the girl explained that she and her brother had come from Saint Martin’s Land, a subterranean world inhabited by green people. She said that she and her brother were tending to their father’s flock when they came upon a cave. They enter the cave and wondered thought the darkness for a very long time and found themselves in this unfamiliar land with bright sunlight that they have never seen before.
Some other worthy mentions
In addition to these 5 clues there are myths and legends from all around the world that seems to indicate that an existence of a world inside our world. For example the Hindu’s believe in different plains underground such as naga loka, patal loka etc. Macushi indians in amazon believed themselves as descendants of sun’s children. Their oral legends speak of an entrance into the earth that takes them to a different world ruled by giants.The least the Nazi’s believed in the hollow earth theory based on their research on artic tribes and Tibetan shrines. They send 3 expedition to north pole to find a way to the world beneath ours, later America also send and armed expedition to Antarctica known as Operation Highjump, to clear out the Antarctic Nazi base.
The funniest part was before writing this article I thought knew a lot about our world and what’s inside it, may be because of our science classes, I really didn’t know that we actually knew so little about what actually under our feet and it’s a good reminder that scientific theories are often repeated and summarized so much that we often forget that there are merely just theories.
