Unusual theory about the structure of our planet
The stories were many strange theories about the Earth. But none of them was not as "enduring" as the theory of a hollow Earth. Moreover, many people believed that this hollow space can be populated by humans and animals. Although current scientific evidence does not support such a theory, still there are people who dream of a world within our world.
1. The holes at the poles
In 1906, William Reed published a book "The Phantom of the poles." In it, the author cited supposedly solid evidence that the earth is actually hollow inside. In a newspaper interview, Mr Reid said that the theory of a hollow Earth, "the most natural explanation is that the poles of the Earth is flattened a bit." He believed that the poles are openings through which the inside of the Earth's sunlight penetrates. Reed's book is now considered a classic among those who believe in the possibility of a hollow Earth.
2. The icebergs inside the Earth
One of the most bizarre theories related to the hollow Earth, is that the icebergs come from inside the Earth. Although such an idea hard to imagine William Reid argued that it makes sense. He said The Sunday Times, that "the icebergs are formed inside the Earth and swim in the oceans of the earth through the holes at the poles." Needless to say, that nothing like modern satellites have been observed.
3. Cellular Cosmogony
By 1908, newspapers around the world discussing another theory of a hollow Earth. According to Dr. Cyrus R. Teed, people have been fooled by scientists. Ostensibly humanity does not live on the outer surface of the planet Earth, but in fact, the Earth is more like a cell, within which people live. This inner world - all that is in the universe, and besides him there is nothing. Sun is in the middle of this "cell" at a distance of 6400 km from its inner surface. It is surrounded by three of the atmosphere, including one consisting of hydrogen, and therefore people can not see himself fireball, and see local accumulation of solar energy, which is about 1,400 kilometers away.
4. The center inhabited
hollow earth idea was discussed long before the 1900s. In a newspaper article from 1884 was the announcement that Americus Simms holds a lecture on the theory of a hollow Earth, developed by his father, John Cleaves Simms Jr. Although John died in 1829, Americus continued to develop his alternative theory. During the lecture Americus spoke about the three people who visited the interior of the Earth and met the people living there.
5. The holes in the globe
As soon as there were all new theories of scientists about the hollow Earth, some religious people also began to believe it. The article from 1893 stated that "God does nothing in vain, and that it would be meaningless for God to create the earth in the form of a solid sphere." As a "justification" of his theory, he said, "it is no wonder the manufacturers of globes, which are a model of the Earth, make hollow globes with holes at the poles."
6. Whole Earth would be too heavy for the orbit of
Many of the people who support the hollow Earth, believed that allegedly the only reasonable scientific conclusion as to why the planet is held in orbit around the sun. For example, George Ipson gave a lecture in 1905, dedicated to his alternative theory of the Earth. According to him, if the Earth was not hollow, it could not "maintain its position in an ethereal space." Ipson also believed that the Earth's poles, there are big holes through which inside is sunlight that illuminates the inner world.
7. Northern Lights
Some of the scientific theories that have emerged in the early 1900s, now seems just crazy. For example, it was a theory of the origin of auroras. She stated that the Northern Lights - this is nothing like the glow of fires ... and inside the Earth's lights. And this is explained by the fact that the supposedly full of crystals inside the Earth, which reflect the sun light and illuminate the inner world. These crystals reflect light people living inside the earth outside, where it can be seen in the form and aurora.
8. The German theory
There is historical evidence that Adolf Hitler and many other Germans after World War II believed in Hohlweltehre ( "Hollow Earth Doctrine"). It is not surprising that even today there are all sorts of crazy conspiracy theories about what Hitler had fled into the interior of the earth and living out his days in peace.
In 1954, she was the Sydney newspaper claimed that "Hitler was fully believed that the Earth is hollow, and believed in divination, astrology, and in that the location of the enemy ships can be determined using a pendulum swinging over the map."
9. The modern theory of
So far, the people continue to believe in the possibility that the Earth is actually hollow. In 2002, a Dallas Thompson argued that the state of clinical death his knowledge of the hollow Earth have been transferred. Thompson was planning to go there on an expedition through the hole at the pole in 2003. But some time after the publication of "Space Manuscripts", a book about his spiritual experience, Thompson disappeared. Others believe in a hollow Earth began to look for an opening to the interior of the Earth, in the Alaskan region.
10. Edmond Halley
The appearance of a hollow Earth theory need to "blame" Edmund Halley - the astronomer who discovered Halley's Comet. In 1672, Halley wrote a theory that the Earth consists of a series of shells, nested like a matryoshka. People live on the outer shell. Under it is a hollow space filled with air, then the next shell, its own atmosphere, and so on. G., Up to the earth's core. He believed that these inner glowing atmosphere, and that all of these "inner Earth" inhabited by people and animals.
