earth is a planet not a spaceship and is not hollow. How can it be? Planetary physics or astrophysics are laws obeyed by all universal objects.
Earth behaves as a planet, is solid with a core, mantel, magma, and surface plates which happen to be shifting at this very moment.
If any hypothesis promoting a hollow earth can possibly explain the weather patterns and flow of magnetic particles all around our PLANET please set
forth a model or kindly link to a website for perusal.
I will keep this to Earth and not the other planets simply because we cannot and will not be drilling into them anytime soon to prove if they are
hollow or not.
This is a link that will take you to article about the deepest hole known to man.
Here are a few points I find interesting from the article:
"It has been said that the human race knows more about certain distant galaxies than it does about the ground that lies beneath its very feet"
"The drilling apparatus thus allowed for greater measurement integrity since rock samples would deform under their incredible internal pressure when
brought to the surface. Needless to say, the project produced enormous amounts of geological data, most of which elucidated how little we know
about our planet
At least he was honest.
Does this prove the Earth is hollow? Certainly not. But since we haven't probed down to the core we are left to use indirect evidence to support any
given theory. Which leaves us to a good question, can indirect evidence prove a theory? Does a doctor need to cut into a patient to prove there is a
tumor seen on a X-ray?
Here are a few things you may find interesting.
1. Both Earth and Moon ring hollow for hours after struck with meteorites, as measured by seismic stations on Earth and on the Moon.
2. Earthquakes do not occur deeper than 450 miles, but down there, the supposedly molten magma would not create and release friction via earthquakes -
a viscous or molten mass equalizes tension, it does not accumulate tension because it is flexible.
3. Gravity experiments in mine shafts show that the balls pointing to the center of gravity point away from the center of the Earth, instead of
towards it, as measured by the distance at the top and bottom of two lead balls hanging from very long wires into a mine shaft.
4.The temperature, as one gets past a certain latitude, increases as one approaches the poles, which is not supposed to happen; arctic (and in less
cases, antarctic) explorers have reported in their ship's logs to have taken off their climate gear (this was before Goretex)
5. The origin of icebergs: around the north pole, they are made of frozen sweetwater - not frozen saltwater. There is little if any precipitation of
rain or snow (sweetwater) in the polar regions. Saltwater freezes to sea ice at low enough temperatures. There is no supply of sweetwater to explain
the existence of icebergs which are hundreds of feet high, up to hundreds of miles long and dozens of miles wide. (If it is fresh water coming out of
the opening it would make sence that these inhabitants would come to the surface for salt)
6. Icebergs around the north pole are colored by red pollen of an unknown plant, as well as dust - a lot of it; including earth material on top of
7. There is a actual skeleton on display at the Smithsonian of a giant from inner Earth. (Just kidding, I just want to check if you're reading
8. Many bird species in the northern hemisphere migrate north - before winter; birds in the southern hemisphere migrate south in their winter, too -
if the poles are the coldest regions, it makes no sense, but flocks of millions of birds like the auk have been observed doing this, and they must
have a very good reason.
9. Floating flora and fauna near the northern polar region's ocean: seeds, flowers and trees are found at latitudes where none should be, and they are
often very fresh, not decomposed from many months of floating in the ocean currents that might have brought them from far away.
10. The stomach content of (un)frozen mammoth has been found to contain tropical (undigested) plants that do not occur anywhere in the northen polar
region; supposedly, the last time the mammoths were clomping around was during the last Ice Age (not the Pixar animation films 1, 2 or 3), but many
were found with their (un)frozen meat good enough to give it to the sled dogs in Siberia for dinner (or late lunch).
Now the best indirect evidence that supports the current accepted model of Earth's interior is seismological data.
Here is one theory explaining how the seismological data may actually show the Earth is hollow. Enjoy...
The average distance from the surface to the center of Earth's core is 3,900 miles.
