Our Hollow Planet: The Hollow Earth Theory - Admyral Byrd, Hitler & Vimanas (Flying Saucers)

Updated on January 14, 2015

Marc Hubs is a writer/researcher on mind, science, and conspiracy. He is the author of "Know Your Enemy: Reflections of NPD."

The theory that Earth may be a hollow planet, despite the more well-known logs in Admiral Byrd's diary, actually dates back several thousand years ago to ancient times.

The ancient greeks believed there were caverns leading into the underworld at Tainaron in Lakonia, Trozien in Argolis, in Ermioni and in many other locations.

Some kind of "inner world" is also referred to in the Vedic texts and according to a story in the Puranas, an ancient city called Shamballa is located inside the Earth. This city is also referred to in Tibetan Buddhism. The theory of Earth having a hollow interior has remained a popular concept ever since and has lived on throughout the ages.

Thracians and Dracian's legends says there are underground chambers which are occupied by Zalmoxis, an ancient God, and in Mesopotamian religion a man is said to have entered a subterranean garden after traveling through a dark tunnel in the mountain of Mashu.

In fact, South American mythology, native American mythology, Russian legend, Mexican folklore, certain tribes of India and Celtic mythology all seem to refer to a subterranean world inside the hollow interior of the Earth. Some of them even refer to strange creatures that dwell in the underworld.

The theory of Earth being a hollow planet has continuously recurred throughout the centuries, athough the concept was dismissed back in the 18th century and is now passed off as nothing more than pseudo-science.

In 1692, in order to explain compass reading anomalies, Edmond Halley had proposed the theory that Earth consisted of a hollow shell approximately 800-km wide, with two inner concentric shells and then the innermost core. Halley theorized that these shells were separated by atmospheres and that each of them had magnetic poles.

Over 100 years later in 1818, John Cleves Symmes also suggested the theory of a hollow Earth with openings at both poles.

Symmes planned to expedition to the North pole which had been approved by then-President of the US, John Quincy Adams. However, Adams left office before the expedition ever took place and so the expedition never actually happened.

Several books were written about Symmes' theory including Symmes' Theory Of Concentric Circles and The Hollow Globe.

The Cave Of The Ancients by Lobsang Rampa is a more modern book which describes an underground chamber system that exists underneath the Himalayas which was filled with ancient technology and treasures.

Douglas Baker claimed in his book that he experienced an astral journey to the inner Earth where he saw an entire subterranean civilization.

The poles are not the only location that people believe there to be openings into the interior of our allegedly hollow planet. Paris, Staffordshire, Canada, China and even the Amazon rain forest have at some point been said to have openings leading into the interior of the hollow Earth.

It wasn't until 1964 when the book The Hollow Earth was released that the ancient technology said to be inside the Earth was attributed to the UFO phenomenon. Allegedly written by "Dr Raymond Bernard", Atlanteans were responsible for flying the advanced machinery and had become concerned about the welfare of the planet after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

The Lazeria Maps collection was showcased in 2011 by Paul Veneti and Horatio Valens, who presented ancient maps collected by Harry Hubbard in order to make the case for a 100-mile wide opening into Earth's interior.


Some theories suggest that Adolf Hitler had actually ordered expeditions to Tibet during the 1930s in an attempt to retrieve advanced technology. Indeed Nazi Germany had their hands on a piece of machinery which they called the Andromeda-Gerat (Andromeda Device).

The Andromeda-Gerat was allegedly a piece of zero-point antigravity machinery, commonly reported as cigar-shaped UFO's. Sanskrit documents, known as the Vimana documents, that were translated by Dr Ruth Reynor, showed instructions on how to build an aircraft with interstellar capabilities. The aircraft, known as a vimana, was partially reliant on solar power.

In May 1926, Admiral Richard Byrd and Floyd Bennet set out to fly over the North pole in a Fokker F-VII tri-motor. Admiral Byrd claimed to have made it to the North pole and was awarded a Medal of Honor allowing him to receive funding to go to the South pole.

In 1996, Admiral Byrd's diary was released which showed conflicting information which is still speculated over today. Dr. Isaiah Brown claimed that Byrd had confessed, during a long walk, that he had never made it to the North pole.


  • Did Byrd just make the claim in order to secure funding?
  • Could Brown have taken Byrd on a long walk to intentionally silence him?
  • Are the Atlanteans living inside the hollow Earth?
  • Did Hitler get his hands on the vimana technology or documents?
  • Is that where the UFOs and vimanas we are seeing today are coming from?

If UFOs really are incapable of interstellar travel, despite being reported all over the world for thousands of years, then this suggests that may perhaps be Earthly in origin and therefore their pilots may be just as human as we are.

Former US Air Force Intelligence Officer, Walter Bosley's father, had served in the Air Force during the late 1950s as part of the US space program and had been present at a classified briefing, held at Wright-Patterson Air Force base, concerning the UFO that crashed at Roswell.

Bosley claimed his father had told him that, at the end of their investigation, the Air Force had come to the conclusion that neither the flying saucer that crashed at Roswell or the bodies were extraterrestrial in origin, but that they actually came from inside our planet where they live in cavernous underground tunnel systems.

      Personally I would also be more tempted to believe that they are extraterrestrial. However, it has been documented that deep underground cavernous tunnel systems have been found all over the world, they do exist and archeologists have even found evidence of high levels of radiation which has been kept locked deep underground for thousands of years - a result of nuclear war perhaps?

      Also, if extraterrestrials were looking for another place to inhabit (in the event that their home world became too damaged) then the interior of a planet like Earth would be perfect!

      Interesting hub indeed, Sparkster.

      I'd never really heard much about beings inhabiting the inner regions of our world before reading this hub, and I must say, I am a little intrigued.

      However, I am more in favor of beings coming from other planets or dimensions than the interior of our planet. It must be too hot and barren down there for advanced life to exist, surely. But then ... how many times has something that seemed impossible occurred? Too many to count, I'll wager.

      I'll wonder till I die.

      Great job again Sparkster!

      Peace and good day to you! :)

      Thanks Rob,

      I have read about the crystal interior theory. Just goes to show how we can't always rely on science!

      I learned in high school that the centre of the earth was molten lava and that the earth had been steadily cooling for millions of years, forming an ever-thickening crust. Volcanoes were proof of this, as were the layers that formed the earth's crust.

      This all was presented so logically and by authority figures called science teachers, so I had no reason to question it and didn't give it any more thought. Then I started reading these whacked out hollow earth theories and decided to see what mainstream science had to say about the centre of the earth today. To my amazement, molten centre theory has been proven to be bogus even by hardcore scientists. Now it's made of iron or may even be a hexagonal crystal, but since my inner science teacher tells me it can't be hollow, it can't possibly be hollow. Or can it? Good hub.

      Without a doubt, if you have read any of the accounts of folks that have gone and come back or the ones that have left and come here, it is like night and day.

      War is outlawed, diseases have all been cured, College last thirty years and life spans are measured in the hundreds of years. No bad weather actually no real weather to speak of, five times as much land mass than the surface, no unemployment, no homeless, no starvation.

      No wonder they don't want anyone to know about it . . .

      This is good and what is fascinating to me is the Hollow Earth concept is as old as the pyramids, but because we can see and touch the pyramids we believe they are real.

      If it is just fantasy why do TPTB spend so much time and effort denying it?

      Imagine what the human race could accomplish with 10,000 years of peace and true freedom. I t seems hell is on the surface and paradise is in the depths of the Earth not the other way around.
