Really? You need evidence? OK. Here goes nothing!.
As I said earlier, the seismic pressure waves that travel through the earth's core every single time some seismic activity happens (or a nuclear bomb, or the twin towers being hit, etc.). These waves give a very accurate picture of what's happening in the core of the earth, and have been demonstrated as being very accurate indeed. Now if the earth was hollow, as some people claim, these waves wouldn't work at all, and all the massively-accurate readings they have produced wouldn't have happened.
So, either seismology is wrong, or you are right. I wonder which side I'll be putting money on...
Mystery Deepens Over Unseen Antarctic "Alps"
Rebecca Carroll for National Geographic News November 6, 2008
The existence of a massive Antarctic mountain range buried under miles of ice has become an even deeper mystery, a new study says. The little-researched Gamburtsev Mountains seem to challenge geologic patterns seen in other mountain ranges on Earth. For one, the range is situated in the middle of the continent instead of on the edge—at the plate-tectonic boundaries—like most other mountains. (See a high-resolution map of Antarctica.) The range's high peaks reach an elevation of about 10,000 feet (more than 3,000 meters)—heights typical of relatively young mountain ranges, such as the spiky Rockies and the European Alps. New findings based on river sediments, which suggest the range is more than 500 million years old, are intriguing, experts say. Older mountains, such as the Appalachian range in the eastern U.S., are thought to be shorter and less rugged after hundreds of millions of years of erosion. Because the Gamburtsev range is tall, some scientists have argued it must have formed relatively recently—within the last 60 million years or so. And because it's not near a tectonic boundary, some have suggested the range rose up as the result of magma buildup around a theoretical volcanic hot spot. (Related: "Under-Ice Volcano Eruption Spewed Ash Over Antarctica" [January 21, 2008].) "The hypothesis that the mountains are derived from young volcanic activity is hard to reconcile with our data," said study lead author Tina van de Flierdt of the Imperial College London.
Would you mind showing me the samples of this core? When was the last time you visited this core? All you have, is theory, and a incomplete theory at that. Explain gravity to me. Explain how the planets rotate around the sun. Scientists have all the answers, correct?
What make you think I want any answers? Ignoring evidence? You haven't shown me any, show me the core. Sorry, not interested in denying ignorance, again, I defy it.
Read the link about the earth, and it will answer all your questions. Of course you are not being rational, so you will ignore any evidence that doesn't hint at some subterranean wonderland full of giants and dinosaurs, so it won't help you in the slightest.
Please try to deny ignorance. It's pathetic.
if the earths hollow where does magma come from?
if the earths hollow how does the seismic waves travel through the earth and register in exactly the same way as if it was a semi solid mass not open space?
Jan Lamprecht, author of "Hollow Planets" and the African Crisis website, discusses a feasibility study conducted on the possibility of a hollow Earth, based on seismic data.

Brother Dave, I agreed with your theory most all of my life. Its just time to look at something a little different.

This is ridiculous. You clearly don't want to learn anything, just to parrot your bizarre, unfounded assertions.
You are the one with the closed mind, not I. I'm open to any evidence. You are only open to evidence that you agree with.

The oxygen crisis Could the decline of oxygen in the atmosphere undermine our health and threaten human survival?
The rise in carbon dioxide emissions is big news. It is prompting action to reverse global warming. But little or no attention is being paid to the long-term fall in oxygen concentrations and its knock-on effects. Compared to prehistoric times, the level of oxygen in the earth's atmosphere has declined by over a third and in polluted cities the decline may be more than 50%. This change in the makeup of the air we breathe has potentially serious implications for our health. Indeed, it could ultimately threaten the survival of human life on earth, according to Roddy Newman, who is drafting a new book, The Oxygen Crisis.
I think this is reason enough, would you agree?
Around 10,000 years ago, the planet's forest cover was at least twice what it is today, which means that forests are now emitting only half the amount of oxygen. Desertification and deforestation are rapidly accelerating this long-term loss of oxygen sources.
The largest flying creature alive today is the Andean condor Vultur gryphus. At maximum size it weighs about 22 pounds and has a wingspread of about 10 feet. But 65 million years ago in the late cretaceous period, the last age of dinosaurs, there was another larger flying animal, the giant pterosaur Quetzalcotalus. It had a wingspread of over 40 feet, the size of a small airplane. Other pterosaurs were also quite large. The pteranodons of the late jurassic period, the classic flying dinosaurs of magazine illustrations, had a maximum wingspan of about 33 feet. This presents a puzzle: how is it that the largest flying animals of the cretaceous were able to attain so much greater size than modern birds? There are severe physical limits associated with flight. It is difficult for large birds to generate enough lift to take off. Consider the well-known square-cube law: if you double the size of a bird by simple scaling, its wing area and associated lift go up by 22, or a factor of 4, while the body weight that must be lifted goes up by a factor of 23, or a factor of 8. When an evolving flying animal species increases in size the basic design must be altered to accommodate the reduced lift-to-payload ratio. But if anything, the pterosaurs were less well designed than modern birds. They lacked the birds' efficient keelbone muscle structure and the aerodynamic advantages of feathers. How, then, could pterosaurs have grown so large?
At a meeting of the Geological Society of America held last Fall in Phoenix, Robert Brenner of Yale University and Gary Landis of the U. S. Geological Survey reported the results of a QMS analysis of ancient air bubbles trapped in amber. They obtained a remarkable result. The atmosphere of the Earth 80 million years ago was discovered to have 50% more oxygen than modern air. Brenner and Landis found that for all gas samples taken from amber 80 million years old the oxygen content ranged between 25% to 35% and averaged about 30% oxygen. Cretaceous air was supercharged with oxygen.
