One easy way to disprove this whole nonsense about "hollow Earth" is gravity. A massive superdense object like a star at the center of the earth would generate tremendous gravitational forces that would pale the gravitational forces that we see on the Earth's surface today.
Second, how and why does a thin hollow layer of soil form a shell around the star without collapsing into it ? With the gravitational forces exerted, the hollow earth would have to be made of really dense and strong material, much more thermally stable than concrete and harder than steel.
Third, a miniature star inside the Earth would affect the entire solar system as the gravitational forces would act on the entire solar system that would be noticeable through the effect of other celestial bodies orbits in the solar system. But that is not the case at all...
All of this is common sense and anybody who wants the links can try google. I can't be bothered to google common sense.

1 : 400,000,000
Wouldn't the sun revolve around the Earth then?
The nucleus is the very dense region consisting of nucleons (protons and neutrons) at the center of an atom. Almost all of the mass in an atom is made up from the protons and neutrons in the nucleus, with a very small contribution from the orbiting electrons. It was discovered in 1911, as a result of Ernest Rutherford's interpretation of the famous 1909 Rutherford experiment performed by Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden, under the direction of Rutherford.
The diameter of the nucleus is in the range of 1.6 fm (1.6×10−15 m) for hydrogen (the diameter of a single proton) to about 15 fm for the heaviest atoms, such as uranium. These dimensions are much smaller than the diameter of the atom itself (nucleus + electronic cloud), by a factor of about 23,000 (uranium) to about 145,000 (hydrogen).
The branch of physics concerned with studying and understanding the atomic nucleus, including its composition and the forces which bind it together, is called nuclear physics.
The Gaia hypothesis, Gaia theory or Gaia principle is a controversial ecological hypothesis or theory proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth (atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system that maintains the climatic and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeorhesis. Originally proposed by James Lovelock as the earth feedback hypothesis, it was named the Gaia Hypothesis after the Greek primordial goddess of the Earth, at the suggestion of William Golding, Nobel prizewinner in literature and friend and neighbour of Lovelock. The hypothesis is frequently described as viewing the Earth as a single organism.

Can anyone explain how something over 400 million times as dense as the sun is still giving off light, let alone not sucking us into oblivion?

in english it cant be explained or my vocab isnt big enough. but i have a sneaking suspicion that its too big for us as our minds currently work.
and jr macbeth is a good example of someone sticking his fingers in his ears and humming as loud as possible to drown it out. and no i didnt read most of the posts cause its the same theory its always been....
and if its not a star in the center then thered be no plants or people or life of any kind. and for whatever argument you have for that, what about radiation?
and you can figure the mass of anything by figuring how it bends space, you can figure out the space bent by mass. from an atom to a galaxy. black holes are terrifyingly dense, thusly they bend a lotta space, thusly we are here. and if the math was wrong we wouldnt know how to fly in space, or on earth, we wouldnt know orbits, we wouldnt know things fall down, we'd be making sacrifices to ra so the sun keeps rising. which coincidentally is where the christian right wants us.
but this is all taking away from the real conspiracies. police are beating people to a pulp legally and we're sitting here like idiots talking about this.
