I would like to say good job on attempting to correlate unrelated data and events, but you took it much too far in my opinion. I find it hard to even
want to read through any facts or data presented, because already having heard your hypothesis, I immediately found it to be preposterous.
However, I did ponder it, against my better judgement, and decided that your hypothesis does not have even a remote chance of being correct. I think
common sense tells us as much, but if you want more scientific reasons, or logical reasons, here are a few, and I neglect to provide further
explanation of them for obvious reasons. They are self-explanatory, and while a couple may have a counter-point, we would have to assume too much to
make these counter-points seem feasible.
The sounds that are being heard sound nothing like a living, breathing animal would make.
A living, breathing animal would not be able to produce a continuous "roar" for the extended periods these sounds have remained audible.
This is not really important to my argument, but the data shows there were still searches for "strange sounds" on Google prior to the drilling
operations, therefore your conclusion has less merit in my opinion. I hold that the sharp increase near the time, but not exact, of the deeper
drilling is mere coincidence.
MY MAIN ARGUMENT...
Sound waves would have dissipated well before reaching any other continent, if the origin of those sounds was Antarctica.
If the sound waves were traveling through the atmosphere, then the sounds themselves could be followed to the source, theoretically, and therefore
should be heard in more areas than what has occurred in these isolated events.
You may rebut that the sounds travel within the Earth itself, or through the Earth, but again, even with a medium, sounds would fail to travel so
large a distance.
The sounds are reported to originate from a "direction", as opposed to coming from under the witnesses' feet. Therefore if the sound were indeed
traveling through the Earth, it would appear to originate not from a specific direction, but from the exact spot the observer is located.
Also, if the waves were strong enough to travel using the Earth's composition as a medium, and the sound waves were strong enough to be heard by an
observer, they would also have a physical reaction on the area surrounding the observer, ie earthquake-like effects, or at the very least the
vibrating of the ground the observer is standing on.
So I have shown that the two mediums that the sound could utilize, if emanated by a monster or originating from Antarctica at all, to travel such a
large distance, are not sufficient enough to provide a viable explanation. Therefore your hypothesis has been refuted sufficiently, at least in my
I could of course have taken this to a much greater depth had I felt it was necessary, so let's not argue points that are obviously implied by the
ideas and propositions I have listed in this post.
Also, just because I do not think your theory is viable does not mean that I wish to force my beliefs on anyone, but I will say that if an issue can
be resolved via facts, then that belief has in fact simply morphed into "truth". This may or may not be the case here. Let me hear what others think
about these points.
