    Has anyone read up on this topic? I've done a little researching on it years ago. Never really believed it but I still find things such as this very interesting and am curious to know how everyone else views it. The gist of this theory is that the Hollow Earth hypothesis proposes that the planet Earth either is entirely hollow or otherwise contains a substantial interior space. This is very popular in folk lore.

    I don't believe it, but I can see why it is a theory that some people might believe. There can be any number of theories, based on geology and studies of volcanoes, earthquakes etc, but the deepest manmade mines and natural cave systems are mere pinpricks on the surface of the earth, so we have only ever penetrated the outer coating.

    Isn't Hell supposed to be down there?

    I think that this is a totally fascinating subject, and it is one that I have heard about for a looongtime. Back in the early 60's maybe (if memory is somewhere close on this), my mother had the original book about the Hollow Earth theory, and I remember reading it way back then.
    My mother actually remembered hearing about Admiral Byrd's expedition to the South Pole, too; and I think it was that one where she said they gave an update every day on the radio. However, as Admiral Byrd got closer to the pole, he was reporting warmer water, and even freenery floating in the river nearby, and she said at that point, they stopped reporting it on the radio.
    When she read the Hollow Earth book, it reminded her of what she had heard on the radio all of those years ago, and she wondered if perhaps Admiral Byrd had actually found an entrance into the earth, and the information was being kept secret.

    It is hard to imagine that we could actually have an inner world and that the earth is hollow; but the idea has certainly existed in legends for centuries; and it has not been disproven either.
    Here is an article showing some of the information/stories written about the hollow earth theory, and also has a map of what it is supposed to look like.

    Is that where Middle Earth theory on the Hobbit come from. I have seen several shows that have the theory that there is another world under what we know, a whole different type of world, it would be interesting to see if there was some proof that there is a Middle Earth.
