    I was reading a book about a hollow earth (” The Hollow Earth Enigma”) and some other articles.
    The one suspicious thing is that NASA never publisher untouched original satellite photos of Earth above 70’N and below 70’S. They only published retouched photos. Question is what do they try to hide from us?

    What if the Earth were made of ice cream?

    Another suspicious thing: NASA always uses a “filter” when they aim telescopes at the Sun. Again I wonder what are they hiding….

    AND they have permanently switched off the cameras on their Voyager craft!

    I smell conspiracy…

    There was a book floating around the Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks campus back in the mid 60s when I worked there for the Geophysical Institute. The name of the book was “The Hollow Earth”. It stated that the Earth was hollow and that was the reason why there is a declination of the geomagnetic pole. There was also a sun in the center. The reason the Eskimos have dark skin is because they came from the center of the Earth.

    If we did dig thru the Earth, we’d be destroyed by lava/magma and all those dinosaurs. Just kidding, we know there’s no “magma” there.

    Do you suppose that you could talk a little slower? My brain has a hard time keeping up with you.
