“Our sun is one of a 100 billion stars in our galaxy. Our galaxy is one of billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living thing in that enormous immensity” — Wernher Von Braun
FROM THE BOOK OF ENOCH
Here are a few references from the Bible which hint at something/somebody living underground:-
In Philippians (2:10) we find this reference: "That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow of things in heaven, and things in Earth, and things under the Earth". This quote from Philippians mentions that knees of "things" (creatures?) shall bow. These "things" are all alive. Among these are included the "things" which live "under the Earth.' Is this a reference to subterranean life?
In the book of Revelations (5:3) we find a similar statement, but this time it specifically mentions subterranean humans: "And no man in heaven, nor in Earth, neither under the Earth, was able to open the book, neither look thereon". The suggestion here is that there are also men "under the Earth."
Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” ...
In Job (26:7) in the Old Testament, one reads: "He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the Earth upon nothing".
In the Book of Enoch (76:6-7) we read: "Seven rivers I beheld upon Earth, greater than all rivers, one of which takes its course from the west; into a great sea its water flows. Two come from the north to the sea, their waters flowing into the Erythraean sea, on the east, And with respect to the remaining four, they take their course in the cavity of the North, two to their sea, the Erythraean sea, and two are poured into a great sea, where also it is said there is a desert".
In Plato's Republic we find mention of a God who sits at the center of the Earth who is responsible for our religions.
The Tibetan Buddhists also have references to a vast Underground Empire populated by millions of people and ruled by a man called Rigden-jyepo and also referred to as The King of the World. The empire is called Agharta and its capital city is Shamballa. A Hindu gentleman once wrote me an e-mail from India and told me that Hindu scriptures also mention a vast underworld. Note: [ The Puranic narrations of the sons of Sagara and their pursuit of the sacrificial horse, as well as the narration of the appearance of the Kalki Avatar take place in the hollow portion fo the Earth. ]
In the early days of my interest in the Hollow Earth theory I stumbled upon an Eskimo legend of the "hole-in-the-sea." Could this be a reference to a Polar Hole?
Some people like Theodore Illion and Nicolas Roerich tried to find this Underground Empire earlier this century. Roerich's discussions with a Tibetan Lama (Priest) in 1928 resulted in him being told that if you go far enough North then you will see a reflection from the Underground Empire (aurora?). He was also told that the entrance to the Underground Empire lay far across a sea. What this Tibetan was saying was indeed very similar to what one would expect from the Hollow Earth theory. In recent years another Tibetan Lama who visited the USA stated that Agharta could be reached by flying directly north from India. Could it be that a Polar Hole somewhere in a northern ocean leads one straight into a vast Underground Empire within the Earth?
