The problem I have with the theory that a super advanced civilization built the pyramids is that lack of style and architecture to them. Its one thing to build the pyramid shape since it can weather the external forces much more effectively than many other designs, but what about the interior which is just small corridors and some rooms, if they were advanced and wanted to leave a mark showing how advanced they were then the interior of the pyramids should have palatial openings and a much greater level of design and engineering.

I saw a special sometime ago and it showed how the egyptians got the massive stones to were they needed, it was done by attaching wood semi-circles to the blocks on all four sides thus creating a full wheel so that they can be rolled as opposed to dragged or slid on rollers.

The theory could be held up of this by saying that the pyramids were built ontop of entrance-ways to the center of the earth b4 the egyptians came to be, and it was the egyptians who carved into and created the corridors and rooms in the pyramids with their limited capacity. The same could be said of the South American civilizations.

I dunno I mean the pyramids really arent that amazing, not like some of the temples in the mountains in nepal and that area of the world. But at the same time there does seem to be more to them than meets the eye.

The most amazing thing to me is the alignment of the pyramids in relation to celestial bodies. Even those boring shafts and small rooms within the great pyramid are supposedly aligned with some stars.

Very cool.

Sorry to come across rude...
but you get what you give...

as to the Pyramids being doorways to the center of the earth,
I think not, for the logical reasons listed previously.

IMO that there is much more data and research that supports the "elaborate tomb" theory, than any other suggestion that has been made so far.
and for the proof that bodies of kings have indeed been found in Pyramids, then look at this link:

kings body and funerary texts found in tombs

to quote from it

external source: The royal body of the king Unas of the 5th dynasty is still found fresh inside this pyramid.

Granted, these are no ordinary tombs... but they were created as burial tributes... which means that they were also "doorways to other worlds" but not the underworld in a literal sense.

The thing is, once the Egyptian civilization crumbled, all of its secrets were busted open and available to the elements. We're lucky in a way. We get to see inside these grand temples and tombs when the ordinary folk of the day were probably never given a sight of them unless they worked there as slaves. So we have all the secret incantations and rituals and all of this other stuff, but they never mention any physical passage into the depths of the Earth, nor do they mention that somebody else besides the Pharoah built the pyramids and all the other wonderful stuff. Now, maybe that was super-duper secret, and was never written down. But, I don't know. Seems like something that huge might have been mentioned, even in passing.

People are notoriously lousy at keeping secrets like that.

You guys say that the architectural design of the pyramids aren’t that great , but they kind of are. Think about it. Picture yourself in ancient Egypt as a traveler. Right after the pyramids have been built. So your traveling along and BAM! There in front of you are three huge pyramids and a bunch of little tombs The three great pyramids reflecting the sun’s light of it’s white limestone and the top (according to legend) is capped with a perfect pyramid of black stone. This huge monument staring at you. Wouldn’t that kind of be amazing? Maybe not in our day with all the new technologies and stuff, but back in the day it was amazing.

I have read that there are tunnels beneath certain temples in Egypt that go on for miles, and have been sealed off. You could probably find a reference to them in PROJECT REDBOOK on Branton's website.
Does anyone have firsthand knowledge of them?

There are tunnels under many of the Egyptian pyrimids and tombs. many are crude manmade tunnels that had not only mummies but millions of mummified baboons and birds stuffed in clay jars (read "mysteries of the spinx" by Erik Von Donikan-kind of a good book where he breaks away from the ufo theories a little and provides intersting background on ancient egypt) So far none have been publicly released about the Giza complex. However Japanese did seismic research there and said there is many chambers inside the Giza complex and under that have yet to be opened....

I heard the us and egyptian gov'ts found the tunnel that runs underneath and is is many km wide with rivers, records, giant crystals, statues, etc....

btw the Giza complex had one empty coffin that was tuned to a human heartbeat... and the entire pyrmid still boggles the mind how it was built.

There are many places around the globe that have ancient tunnels with walls so smooth as if they were made by laser beams. Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, most of the us southwest, Washington state, India, and Tibet, parts of China to name a few... its not so much that the earth is really hollow but there appears to be an ancient network of tunnels made by people in deluge times.

Now that would be very interesting. Thousands of tunnels and passage ways that connect every continent and land mass dug by ancient civilizations. You said the passage ways in some places look like they were cut with a “laser beam”, well this site tells of secret underground bases. It would be interesting to see if anyone lived near these places and could check them out.

I've read pretty much everything there is to read on ancient and unexplored manmade tunnels. My concern right now is finding ones that are local to me, that I can feasibly explore.

Well good for you but what does that have to do with anything?

Maybe there is a doorway.. Thats my opnion...
What if there is a how sort of paradise in the center of the earth what you like see in movies .. With Palmtrees and something like dad.. and hottubs from the nature self
I dont really know..

Wouldn’t that be great if it was? Think of the massive panic of a civilization living under our feet. All textbooks would have to be re-written; every thing about the science of earth would have to re-thought. If the government is covering something like this I can understand why. The world would go crazy.

Maybe the goverment dont tell us that information caus.. If we know we go get crazy and totally chaos will raise over the earth.. so i dont think that the ever would tell us, if there is somthing downstairs the Egypt piramids

I was looking through some old sites I had under my favorites and this one popped up.

so right about now your thinking well haven’t I already posted this site. Yes but theres something I didn’t notice before and that’s this


“In 1818, John Cleves Symmes, Jr. suggested that the Earth consisted of a hollow shell about 800 miles (1,300 km) thick, with openings about 1400 miles (2,300 km) across at both poles with 4 inner shells each open at the poles. Symmes became the most famous of the early Hollow Earth proponents. He actually proposed making an expedition to the North Pole hole, thanks to efforts of one of his followers, James McBride, but the new President of the United States, Andrew Jackson (in office 1829 - 1837), halted the attempt. Symmes died in 1829.”


Now the interesting part is that it says that the president stopped him from going. Now why would the president stop someone from going to the north pole? Sounds to me like a conspiracy.

I also bought a book recently, ironcially it’s called “The Hollow Earth” by David Standish. And as I was reading I came across a part where he says that many famous people belived that the earth is hollow. They include Edmond Halley (Halley’s comet guy), Edgar Allan Poe, John Cleves Symmes,and Admiral Richard E. Byrd of the United States Navy (according to him he actually went inside)

posted on Sep, 12 2006 @ 03:44 PM
The Edmond Haley is interesting that he believed the earth to be hollow, as far as Edgar Allen Poe he was known for being psychotic so I dont know if using his name as a defence of the theory is the best idea.

They say that because of the large size of the openings st the poles you could travel in and come back out without even knowing what happened (1400 miles is half the width of US, from NY to Kansas City or so) that is huge a hole that big means that unless u had some sort of specificly designed navigation or came in from high high up u could just get to the other side without delving deeper into the hole.

posted on Sep, 13 2006 @ 06:48 AM
the other side? As in the other side of the world or the other side of the first hole? I'm to sure i understand what your trying to say.

Anyways I was searching for first hand accounts and I came across this site about Admiral Byrd

It says that someone in Missouri had a couple of copies of the diary of Admiral Byrd. And they give an address to order one. (Which I’ll do in the next couple of days) But anyway it says that in his diary that he tells of first hand accounts of the hollow earth, from the north pole expedition that he led. Now I don’t know how authentic it is but ill order a copy if I can and we’ll see.

This is what caught my attention

“1140 Hours- Another radio message received. We begin the landing process now, and in moments the plane shudders slightly, and begins a descent as though caught in some great unseen elevator! The downward motion is negligible, and we touch down with only a slight jolt!
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. END LOG”

Now if this is true then that proves it once and for all. I’ll get back to you on the subject if I am able to get a copy from that address.
Oh and the address is

Hollow Earth Society
Attn: Captain Wilhelm Shoush
POB 142, Stanford, MO 65757

If anyone wants to try and order a copy.

I found a site that doesn’t directly prove that the earth is hollow but it gives evidence that it might not be molten iron.

It says here that

“But geophysicists also assumed that at some great depth, the pressure would be so high that even at temperatures of thousands of degrees the iron would freeze solid. In the 1930s, seismologists did find a "discontinuity" in the velocity of waves propagated through the center of the Earth, suggesting some sort of stratification of the core.”


“Confirming a long-held scientific notion, a Northwestern University seismologist and a colleague at the French Atomic Energy Commission have provided the first direct evidence that -- inside a liquid core -- the very center of the Earth is solid.”

Hmm.. So one theory is that the earth’s core IF it was iron, it would freeze. So according to that theory the earth isn’t solid, it’s hollow with a giant frozen ball of iron in the center. Or at least that’s how my interpretation goes. The second quote says that the very center of the earth is solid. So the earth could be solid, but with thousands of hollow passages and tunnels. Which is exactly what some hollow earthers believe. That the earth has thousands of passageways and tunnels leading to various places around the world. So does this prove that the earth at least COULD be hollow or semi-hollow?

Also it seems to me that if the earth was full of molten hot magma that supposedly is 4000 degrees Celsius which is 7232 degrees Fahrenheit, which by the way steel melts at 2800 degrees F. So if the core is so hot then why doesn’t it just burn up all of the earth that surrounds it? And eventually just burn up all of the earth itself. And if you say it does burn up certain portions of the inner earth then where is the new earth coming from? And what would make the center that hot? And how did a giant ball of 4000 deg. C. get to the center of our earth? And how come Astreiods don’t have these molten cores? And does Jupiter have one? It seems to me that it would make more sense that the Earth would be hollow not solid.

no jules verne was a fan of Edmond Halley.Who was one of the first to suggest the theory.

Edmond Halley, b. Nov. 8 (Oct. 29, O.S.), 1656, d. Jan. 14, 1742, was an English astronomer who discovered the proper motion of stars and the periodicity of comets. His activities also ranged from studying archaeology to serving as deputy comptroller of the mint at Chester. He was an integral part of the English scientific community at the height of its creativity. A graduate of Oxford, he became a member of the Royal Society at the age of 22. From the island of Saint Helena, he catalogued (1676-78) the positions of about 350 Southern Hemisphere stars and observed a transit of Mercury; he urged that the latter phenomenon and future transits of Venus be used to determine the distance of the Sun. He worked out a theory of cometary orbits, concluded that the comet of 1682 (which still bears his name) was periodic, and correctly predicted that it would return in 76 years. In 1710, comparing current star positions with those listed in Ptolemy's catalog, he deduced that the stars must have a slight motion of their own, and he detected this proper motion in three stars.
Halley was appointed Savilian professor of geometry at Oxford in 1704, and in 1720 he succeeded John Flamsteed as astronomer royal. At the Greenwich Observatory he used the first transit instrument and devised a method for determining longitude at sea by means of lunar observations.

Halley played an active role in the events and controversies of his time. He both morally and financially supported Isaac Newton, pacified the astronomer Johannes Hevelius regarding the disputed accuracy of methods for measuring stellar positions, and infuriated Flamsteed by scheming with Newton to publish Flamsteed's observations long before they were complete.

did you notice the huge list of geology qualifications there ?
