I had never thought of it until I saw the movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth". It all seems pretty interesting and exciting, but I doubt its true. I really don't see how it could be, but its fun to think about.

I rather enjoyed Science Fiction and Fantasy as a teenager in the sixties, however as I got older I got disgusted with the rationalism of so many of the people who wrote it, which I gradually came to find reductionist. I first heard of it there as the Shaver Mysteries. Shaver, I was told, was insane, and his editor, Ray Palmer, was either insane or dishonest or both. Eventually, after coming to terms with my disgust at some small mindedness, I came to understand that while nasty, such characterizations were not entirely wrong. They aren't right but they're not wrong. Of course the history of the idea is older than that and if nothing else I had only to look at Edgar Rice Burroughs's Pellucidar novels to prove that. I discovered a long history of Occultist writings and more important, occultist fiction, which deals with it. And frankly, it's the fiction which I think is most relevant. Through ArtNEWs (of all places) I discovered a novel about a man who -- bear with me on this: my Dad is a Mason and while I'm not I have a lot of respect for them -- having betrayed the Masons' secrets is kidnapped to the center of the earth where he finds redemption. Hello. The original claims that the Masons were subversive or part of the International Zionist conspiracy or whatever, were spread by supporters of the Absolute Monarchy. They are no more credible than the Protocols of the Elders of Zion which IS a blatant forgery. Frankly there is always a gray area between fact and fiction in occultism which I can accept and which is part of the territory -- I know of at least one old book of spells which was republished in the last twenty years as H. P. Lovecraft's fictitious Necronomicon. Hollow Earth theories tend to go beyond that. EDIT: I don't see much difference between what David Ickes is doing and the fiction writers, and I don't see any of them working the Hollow Earth concept with uplifting ideas. It tends to be very lowbrow and nasty. For something to be valid to me it has to either have physical evidence or to represent a spiritual concept which is provably important. Geothermal energy is provably real and contradicts any evidence people may have brought forward for a hollow earth. As for spiritual nourishment, after Dante's Inferno there isn't much in it.

It's impossible. The pressure at the center of the Earth is so great that it cannot be hollow.

The centre of the earth is possibly hollow. Scientests have said that the centre of the earth is solid iron but if thats the case, couldn't there be a cavern in the solid iron. Its not solid!!!!!

i assume that in case you went to a university the place you sat around in a cave mutually as a disgustingly unwashed instructor wearing a grimy grass skirt scrawled on the grimy partitions with a finger dipped in dirt, then you definately might desire to be sure cave artwork by way of fact the epitome of know-how. meanwhile something individuals stay interior the 21st century, and we can see documents from seismographs and different technologies that could incredibly astonish your widespread troglodyte, which let us know that the Earth is honestly and quite stable suitable all the way down to that's quite compressed liquid center. grunt slobber grunt grunt (translation: Cheers!)
