Take 2
Been working like a dog on this program that I intend to publish soon before I start working on the upcoming construction project that's worth $250 million. When I work, I like to have background info noises. Sometimes, I have the radio on with the news. Sometimes, I have youtube documentaries on.
Anyway, I randomly came across the following videos so I thought it was nice to listen to them while I work.

Google searched a bit and found this.

I must say this is the first time I've ever heard anything about the "hollow earth theory" and this supposed expedition.
Ok, from the videos, the interviewee talks about the hollow earth theory and how eye witness accounts in the past have talked about openings at the poles that supposedly lead into the Earth's inner surface. He also claims that the center of gravity of the Earth isn't in the center of the Earth but rather in the crustal mass.
Since this board is filled with people of all backgrounds from honest to god scientists to honest to god cranks (been lurking for a while), I'd like your opinions on this stuff.
Here's my take. As a layman science dude (I would hardly call an engineer a scientist or anything close to it), I know next to nothing about geology. What I do know is nowadays it is very fashionable to call someone a crank just because he doesn't hold the same view as mainstream anything. That and the fact that engineers have a track record of being young earth creationists around here...
From my education, the center of gravity of a sphere is always the center, unless it is lopsided. If we have a hollow sphere, then the gravity at any point inside a hollow sphere is always zero due to the cancellation effect. Yes?
So, if the Earth is hollow, what's keeping the crust from collapsing into the void? The pressure must be enormous down there due to all the matter that is above it.
That guy kinda lost me with all the religious stuff. But I did find his ideas interesting. I'm reminded of when Copernicus proposed the heliocentric model of the universe. There were people that posed similar types of questions: If the Earth is moving, how come the winds aren't blowing everyone and everything off the surface? I can't help but wonder if everything we claim to know about the true nature of the universe is just as ignorant as the people of Copernicus' time's claim to know god's ways.
So, I thought I heard the radio interviewer mentioned a name and expanding earth theory. Searched the name Neal Adams and found this.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJfBSc6e7QQ&feature=c4-ov...
In this video, the commentator talks about and illustrates the growing Earth theory. Neal Adams shows us how all the continents fit together perfectly on all sides. In other videos of the playlist, he shows us his evidence of other planetary bodies growing.
What do I think about this? I find all these ideas interesting. But I prefer to hold off my judgment. Again, I'm serious when I say I'm not qualified to say either way. That said, I can't ignore the fact that Neal Adams have illustrated that the continents fit together on all sides.

...to honest to god cranks (been lurking for a while)...
Is that excerpt a confession?

Or something like that.

Let me provide a little more detail.
Your thread proposal is lacking a couple things:
  1. It's not a proposal to debate anything, but just the question, "Hey, what does everybody think about this crazy idea." You need to outline a topic to debate and state your own position.
  2. You haven't provided any information about the topic, just links. This is from the Forum Guidelines:
    1. Bare links with no supporting discussion should be avoided. Make the argument in your own words and use links as supporting references.
