Earth can't be hollow. Its too big. Any hollow spot would be crushed out of existence by the heat and pressure.
How do you know? Have you ever witnessed what's inside? So you believe everything scientists say even though they themselves have never been there? I'm not saying the hollow earth is 100% real but we never know untill we investigate it.
There is plenty of evidence to suggest that the current model of the Earth is correct. For one, the deepest we have been able to drill into the crust is 40,000 feet. We had to stop because the internal heat from the mantle (which we weren't even close to reaching yet) was melting the drill bit.
We know that pressure exists there since we know how diamonds are created. Not to mention we know how gravity works as well as how denser materials tend to shift to the bottom of a material. The scientific principles that explain the core of our planet are very sound. You would need some extensive evidence to disprove it.

My favorite theory is that the hollow earth is populated by Nazi's and Reptilians and live in a place called Agartha where's there a small sun INSIDE the earth that keeps them nice and toasty. Oh and the entrance is in Antarctica.
I want such a magical place to be real.
I'm afraid I'm not a very spiritual person. Though, one could say I've done I've done an extensive amount of "soul searching".
The Hollow Earth theory is a pseudoscientific belief and conspiracy theory stating that the Earth is hollow. Theories include that the inhabitants of the "Inner Earth" walk around the inside feet-up, 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.
The conspiracy aspect supposedly relates to a large hole providing access to the underworld, which is located somewhere in the arctic or Antarctic regions, and the attempts to keep it quiet made by the superpowers in conjunction with whatever the Grand Theory du jour is, be it reptilians, Tibetan masters, Atlanteans and/or aliens. That there are undisclosed entrances to these "inner worlds" extends also to the moon, with one video purporting that you can see it on Google Earth, though it should be noted that this is very clearly just a graphics glitch caused by stitching multiple low-resolution and high-contrast images together in combination with the usual seam errors produced at the poles when using spherical UV mapping. These theories are also associated with apocryphal stories of apparently bottomless holes in various locations, such as Mel's Hole in Washington, USA.
It's not clear what supports the surface of the Earth according to the Hollow Earth Theory, since the surface of the earth we can see would most likely collapse under the force of gravity without a substrate (the mantle and inner core are solid, the outer core is liquid, and both states are highly resistant to compression). Nor is it clear what keeps the denizens from floating away from the inner surface.
There's also the problem that the "shell" would need to be really dense, in order to produce a gravitational field this strong.
Finally, there's the question of exactly why this would be kept secret - as with several other conspiracy theories, there seems to be no motive behind this one aside from "Let's make the unwashed masses look really stupid!"
