The Hollow Earth...
    #539898 - 02/04/02 03:52 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I've run across this a couple times, and it just seems crazy... but who really knows right? Anyone had any thoughts on this?


The Hollow Earth

Perhaps some of the most bizarre scientific theories ever considered were those concerning the possibility that the Earth was hollow. One of the earliest of these was proposed in 1692 by Edmund Halley.

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.

Halley also suggested that the interior of the Earth was populated with life and lit by a luminous atmosphere. He thought the aurora borealis, or northern lights, was caused by the escape of this gas through a thin crust at the poles...

I wonder how crazy we're going to look in a couple hundred years? Not just we shroomers, but we the population at large.

That guy was crazy. :laugh:

One of the best writngs about the hollow Earth is to be found in the classic 'Morning of the Magicians' by Bergier and Pauwels. According to that book, Hitler believed in this mythos and was hindering his own scientists work by his dismissal of the Jewish Einstein. The theory of fire and ice; Atlantean/Lemurian notions; a moon at the bottom of the sea; and the double-think idea that while looking to the sky, we are looking towards the center of the Earth, are discussed.
