It might be a good time to find that tin foil hat if you have one. I've come across a theory that there is an entrance into a civilization that exists inside the Earth and it lies right across the border from Missouri.

This journey to the center of the Earth is one that many believe is a real thing. If you're not familiar with the theory of a hollow Earth, The Why Files just did a new episode about the concept that there is a civilization that exists under our feet.

  • I'll summarize what this theory claims in a nutshell:
  • The inside of the Earth is actually hollow
  • There's a civilization that exists there and has for centuries

There are multiple entrances to this "hollow Earth" around the world including the North and South Poles...oh, and one that is right next door to Missouri.

If there is such a thing as a "hollow Earth", where is the entrance that's close to Missouri?

Answer - Mammoth Cave in Kentucky

If you've never visited, Mammoth Cave is an easy 4 1/2 hour drive from St. Louis, Missouri.

The theory states that if you enter Mammoth Cave, you can eventually go deep down into the Earth where there is a secret entrance to what is referred to by hollow Earthers as "Agartha".

The National Park Service mentions that Mammoth Cave is the longest cave system in the world. They also admit that not all of the cave has been explored...or has it?

Here's another question. How can we really know what's inside the Earth if we haven't been able to explore it all. Discover Magazine covered how science has come up with the composition of the inner Earth, but even they admit that some things we thought we knew didn't turn out to be true.

You can laugh at this theory and I wouldn't blame you, but I'd argue that exploration of the inside of the Earth needs to continue. Who knows? Perhaps there's some truth we'll discover someday that will show us the entrance to this mysterious void is right across the border from Missouri after all.
