Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

  • Published: 04 August 2014
  • Planet Earth is this solid thing you are standing on right now. In your everyday life you don't really waste a thought about how amazing this is. A giant, ancient, hot rock. How did it come into existence and how big is it really? You will be surprised. The ground you are standing on is just a very, very small part of the big picture.

If you have nothing then just man up and say so. If you got something then share it. How is that so difficult? You conspiracy nuts are just so silly.

Solid earth is just as flawed and ludicrous as flat earth. If inner and outer cores existed like mainstream/schools claims, it will be impossible for earth to generate magnetic field because all that intense heat will constantly demagnetize metals in inner and outer cores. All it takes is heating magnets and magnetized metals enough under fire and magnetic field is gone. That's all it takes to debunk inner and outer core of solid earth mainstream conspiracy theory.

Big bang, black hole, solid planets, nuclear sun, gravity driven universe, quantum, dark energy, dark matter, etc. is the real fantasy and sci-fi novels. Research electric universe on thunderbolts project channel, it debunks most of mainstreams messy cosmology.

Admiral Byrd called it Center of the Great Unknown. Why would he call it that if poles are just ice everywhere? Read about it Raymond Bernard's book.

Centrifugal force and reverse gravity will prevent solid/molten core from forming due to reverse gravity and centrifugal force pulling all heavy matter away from the center of earth, google "Gravitational Field Inside a Electric Hollow Earth/Planet" and youtube search "What's Inside Jupiter? | Space News" on electric gravity. Reverse gravity is how we get zero gravity at the center of earth. For evidence of hollow planet, google "Mars North Polar Opening Confirmed" You can clearly see the polar opening observed by Nasa hubble telescope, they forgot to censor it. JPclips search "jupiter's north pole winds" for evidence of inner sun/plasma core claimed by hollow earth theory. You can clearly see the inner sun of jupiter and sunlight coming from the north polar opening of jupiter. For seismology evidence google "Liesegang Cavities" and "Hollow Planet Seismology Vs Solid Earth Seismology". Read Chapters III-VIII in Marshall B. Gardner's book for more evidence of polar openings and inner sun which collects observations and experiences of polar explorers and astronomers. Also youtube search "North Polar Mirage of the Sun from Hollow Earth" At 3 min 20 sec you can see the pictures of inner sun/plasma core of earth taken by confused researchers. Earths inner suns light occasionally reflects outside through polar opening and that's what the researchers who went too close to the rotation axis of earth observed. It is the same inner sun Olaf Jansen and his father mentioned in The Smoky God book. Polar openings are naturally formed by centrifugal force at the rotation axis of all planets 90 latitude, simple experiment proves it, youtube search "Rotating Water + Air Sphere". Also there are many ancient stories of beings coming from inside the earth. And google "Mercator North Pole Map" which shows oceans where none should be and depicts north polar opening which looks like a mountain but is depicting a hole, it says so in latin.
