Admiral Byrd and the Hollow Earth Theory

No credible person has been more associated with the hollow Earth theories than Admiral Richard Byrd, who flew over the North Pole in the twenties and mounted expeditions to Antarctic in the forties.


In 1947, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd of the United States Navy flew directly to the North Pole. Some believe that instead of going over the pole, his plane actually entered the Inner Earth. His diary reports of his experience of entering the hollow interior of the Earth, and traveling 1700 miles over mountains, lakes, rivers, green vegetation and animal life. This is where the legend of Admiral Byrd Hollow Earth connection.


This diary tells of the great pilot’s plane being greeted by flying machines, a type he had never seen before. They conveyed to him that he had been allowed to enter Agartha (the most celebrated city in the hollow Earth) because of his high moral and ethical character. They had decided that it was time to make greater contact with the outside world to make sure we didn’t destroy this planet and their civilization with it.


Admiral Byrd and his crew were guided by their hosts in their plane back to the outer world, their lives having been changed forever.


Admiral Byrd stated that the North and South Poles are actually only two of many openings to the center of Earth.


Admiral Byrd also indicated that the inner Earth has an inner Sun. Admiral Byrd’s theory and that of earlier scientists, is that the poles of the Earth are convex, rather than concave. Ships and planes could float or fly into an opening.


The American media reported Admiral Byrd’s discovery, though it was immediately suppressed by a covert international conspiracy led by our benevolent governments, who, of course, always know best.


Ray Palmer, editor of the famous Flying Saucer Magazine did a detailed story on Admiral Byrd’s discoveries. It was reported that the United States Government either bought, stole or destroyed almost every copy and then destroyed the plates at the printing press. Anyone who feels they are not capable of such a cover-up is naive.


A very similar situation occurred to an article written about Admiral Byrd’s discovery by the authoritative magazine, National Geographic. Upon the magazine’s publication, the US authorities fond and destroyed virtually every copy of that edition. It begs the question – if the story of Agartha was bogus, why would the government be so fearful of the information being disseminated?


Another interesting tidbit is that the United States Government apparently does not permit planes fly over the poles. All flights are directed to go around the poles, and airline pilots flying in those zones will confirm this. It has also been reported that icebergs are made up of fresh water and not salt water. How could that be? Another question whose answer does not make sense: Why it is warmer nearer the Poles than it is hundreds of miles away from them?


In Dr. Raymond Bernard’s book titled, “The Hollow Earth,” he tells of a man who confirmed Admiral Byrd’s story. Dr. Nephi Cotton of Los Angeles reported that one of his patients, a man of Nordic descent, told him the following story:


“I lived near the Arctic Circle in Norway. One summer my friend and I made up our minds to take a boat trip together and go as far as we could into the North country. So we put a month’s worth of food provisions in a small fishing boat and set to sea. At the end of one month we had traveled far into the north, beyond the Pole and into a strange new country. Mystified, we continued in that direction and found ourselves sailing into a vast canyon leading into the interior of the Earth. We kept sailing and then we saw what surprised us … a Sun shining inside the Earth. The ocean that had carried us into the hollow interior of the Earth and gradually became a river. This river led, as we came to realize later, all through the inner surface of the world from one end to the other. It can take you, if you follow it long enough, from the North Pole clear through to the South Pole.


“We saw that the inner surface of the Earth was divided, as the other one is, into both land and water. Plants are big, trees gigantic and finally we came to giants. They were dwelling in homes and towns, just as we do on the Earth surface, and they used a type of electrical conveyance like a mono-rail car, to transport people. It ran along the river’s edge from town to town. Several of the Inner Earth inhabitants, huge giants, detected our boat on the river, and were quite amazed. They were, however, quite friendly. We were invited to dine with them in their homes, and so my companion and I separated, he going with one giant to that giant’s home and I going with another giant to his home.


“My gigantic friend brought me home to his family and I was completely dismayed to see the huge size of all the objects in his home. The dinner table was colossal. A plate was put before me and filled with a portion of food so big it would have fed me abundantly an entire week. The Giant offered me a cluster of grapes and each grape was as big as one of our peaches. I tasted one and found it far sweeter than any I had ever tasted outside. In the interior of the Earth all the fruits and vegetables taste far better and more flavorsome than those we have on the outer surface of the Earth.


“We stayed with the Giants for one year, enjoying their companionship as much as they enjoyed knowing us. We observed many strange and unusual things during our visit with these remarkable people, and were continually amazed at their scientific progress and inventions. All of this time they were never unfriendly to us, and we were allowed to return to our own home in the same manner in which we came … in fact, they courteously offered their protection if we should need it for the return voyage.”


A second Norwegian by the name of Olaf Jansen testified he had experienced a similar visit to the hollow Earth. His account was rendered in a book called “The Smoky God,” written by Willis George Emerson.


The term “Smoky God” referred to the Central Sun in the hollow interior of the Earth which is not as large or as brilliant as our outer Sun, and thus appears smoky in appearance.


The book records the incredible experiences of a Norweigan father and his son who were foolhardy enough to try to find, in their small fishing boat, the “land beyond the North wind,” which they had read about. A windstorm carried them through the polar opening into the hollow interior of the Earth.


The book was published in 1908. It tells of the son’s many difficulties and eventual return. The pair spent two years in the real “Down Under” and upon returning through the South polar opening, the father died when an iceberg broke in half and capsized the boat. The son was rescued and subsequently told his incredible story to an incredulous public.


Most everyone who heard his tale thought him unstable; he was placed in a ward for the mentally ill. After many years, he was released and resumed his life as a fisherman. Upon retiring, he moved to the United States. After his scalding experience in telling what he had gone through, he rarely was tempted to recount his adventures in the hollow earth again.


However, in his nineties, with nothing left to lose, he befriended Willis George Emerson and told him his story. On his death bed, Jansen also gave him maps that he had made of the interior of the Earth as well as the manuscript of his experiences. The book, “The Smoky God,” recounts his adventures with his dad.


In the book, he told the reader that the people in the interior live much longer than humans, and can exist up to eight hundred years. They are very advanced, scientifically. They communicate telekinetically – usng their thoughts. Their sources of power discovered are much more powerful than electricity. They have created flying saucers, which are operated by this superior source of power, drawn from the electromagnetism of the atmosphere.


They are twelve or more feet in height. One other interesting side note is that in 1942, Nazi Germany under Hitler, sent out an expedition composed of some of its leading scientists in an attempt to find an entrance to the hollow Earth. Goering, Himmler, and Hitler enthusiastically endorsed the project. The Fuehrer was convinced that the Earth was concave and that man lived on the inside of the globe.


In “The Hollow Earth,” Raymond Bernard also tells of a photograph published in 1960 in the Globe and Mail, out of Toronto, Canada which shows a beautiful valley with lush, green hills. An aviator claimed that the picture had been taken from his airplane as he flew “beyond the North Pole.”


This is a very similar description of what Admiral Byrd spoke of on his return from the North Pole. Admiral Byrd also stated that he had been surprised at the green environment encountered there.


“We saw that the inner surface of the Earth was divided, as the other one is, into both land and water. In the interior of the Earth all the fruits and vegetables taste far better and more flavorsome than those we have on the outer surface of the Earth.”


The Byrd Hollow Earth experience lowered the level of skepticism for many regarding the hollow earth. His obsession has crept into modern parlance so that believers speak of “the Byrd Hollow Earth” in one phrase. This great adventurer achieved immortality in ways he never dreamed.
