Could you point some of those valid points? Thanks in advance.
That said, this is a site for conspiracy theorists and the like and while I'm not in any way saying it is my or anyone else place to say so ,except for the webmasters of ATS, I really think that all of these debunkers that are flooding the gates of this site should discuss their topics at skeptic.com or skepticnews.com...somewhere that makes sense to have such views.
A discussion is based in different opinions, so what's the point of having a sceptics or believers only forum?
People have their own opinions, and if the hollow Earth theory has (apparently) more sceptics than most of the other theories that are posted on ATS that means only that it's a less popular theory. And the fact that some people are sceptic about something doesn't mean that they cannot agree with some conspiracy theories, but it also means that they don't have to agree with all (specially when some of those theories are mutually exclusive).
PS: I know that I am seen as a sceptic (and I really am), but the degree of scepticism depends on the data that is presented to back up any theory, and in this particular case, I have yet to see good data backing up the theory.

It's been few years, so I maybe mixing few theories... or making up my own , anyhow here's the parts I could find about what Nassim was saying, i'll keep searching see if I can find what I think I heard... gonna take some time, at work atm. So here's some food for thought..

Moving on --- the actions and calculations of gravity, on a planetary scale, are fairly prosaic, anyway. The larger questions are a comological and universal concept, that are still being refined.
But, locally, for one planet at a time, it is highly, highly implausible for the "hollow" theory to be an explanation, let alone a theory.
First, there is simply no natural mechanism to explain such a formation. Second, back to the local effects of gravity -- they are undeniable, and relentless. They WILL compact every last bit as tightly as possible, depending on the overall mass of the constituent material. Otherwise, smaller bodies --- asteroids, comets, etc would not form.

Also interesting is that if this is true, all our concepts of planetary mass and gravity would change. Lending more creedence to the theory. Example is that if a comet/asteroid is not as massy or as dense as we thought

So you believe that NASA is the only people who have satellites with cameras ? And if the American government wants to cover something up about planet earth than the rest of humanity will naturally say "yes sir" and follow them ?? Where does this grand opinion of America and NASA come from ?
Are you for real ? Huge holes at the poles and they managed to keep it secret even today when millions of people travel over the poles in inter continental flights ? When any idiot with a biplane can fly over and check it out ? When every two bit country has their own space program ??
Commercial aircraft have been flying over the North Pole since 1957, when Scandinavian Airlines began Douglas DC-6 service from Oslo to Anchorage and on to Tokyo. Back in those bad old days, the impassable airspace of the Soviet Union stood smack in the middle of most logical routes from Europe to East Asia, so airlines would take passengers on a circuitous journey through Alaska. When Finnair introduced the first nonstops from Europe to Japan in 1983, they had to do so by flying over the pole and down through the Bering Strait.
