Huge Ocean discovered inside Earth – Mar 20, 2014

Scientists scanning the deep interior of Earth have found evidence of a vast water reservoir beneath eastern Asia that is at least the volume of the Arctic Ocean.

The discovery marks the first time such a large body of water has found in the planet's deep mantle.

Seismologists at Washington University in St. Louis noticed a region beneath Asia where seismic waves appeared to dampen, or "attenuate," and also slow down slightly. Lots of damping and a little slowing match the predictions for water very well.

They dubbed the new underground feature the "Beijing anomaly," because seismic wave attenuation was found to be highest beneath the Chinese capital city. China is under greater seismic risk than just about any country in the world. Read more

If there are oceans inside Earth, how realistic is the Hollow Earth Theory.

  1. Now they can stop saying the great flood wasnt possible due to not enough water.

    1. Not so fast.
      Evidence is one thing. Incontrovertible proof is another.
      Even so, No one can assess just how Much water may be down there.
      Or how little.

      Lets not jump to any conclusions.

    2. well i meant its a possibility, if true and on the scale it mentions then it could be a huge discovery for many many reasons. the great flood just being one of them

  2. It wouldn't surprise me if this was the truth, think of all that water that goes into the water table across the world and infiltrates deep into the Earth. So much is unknown about the inside of the Earth so anything's possible. We probably know more about space ha!
