The Hollow Earth
By: Dr. R. W. Bernard, B.A., M.A., Ph.D.
From the evidence contained in this book,
confirmed by many Arctic explorers whom we cite, we come to the
1. There is really no North or South Pole. Where
they are supposed to exist there are really wide openings to the hollow
interior of the Earth.
2. Flying saucers come from the hollow interior
of the Earth through these polar openings.
3. The hollow interior of the earth, warmed by
its central sun (the source of Aurora Borealis) has an ideal
subtropical climate of about 76 degrees in temperature, neither too hot
nor too cold.
4. Arctic explorers found the temperature to rise
as they traveled far north; they found more open seas; they found
animals traveling north in winter, seeking food and warmth, when they
should have gone south; they found the compass needle to assume a
vertical position instead of a horizontal one and to become extremely
eccentric; they saw tropical birds and more animal life the further
north they went; they saw butterflies, mosquitoes and other insects in
the extreme north, when they were not found until one is as far south
as Alaska and Canada; they found the snow discolored by colored pollen
and black dust, which became worse the further north they went. The
only explanation is that this dust came from active volcanoes in the
5. There is a large population inhabiting the
inner concave surface of the Earth's crust, composing a civilization
far in advance of our own in its scientific achievements, which
probably descended from the sunken continents of Lemuria and Atlantis.
Flying saucers are only one of their many achievements. It would be to
our advantage to contact these Elder Brothers of the human race, learn
from them and receive their advice and aid.
6. The existence of a polar opening and land
beyond the Poles is probably known to the U.S. Navy in whose employ
Admiral Byrd made his two historic flights and which is probably a top

Did Super Beings From Space Ever
Visit Earth? Classical Writers Reported So.
Each Age interprets unusual events
in the language of its own experience, whether it be Ezekiel describing
sky objects in the symbology of angels and precious jewels, or Monk
Lawrence in A.D. 776 marveling at flaming shields from heaven spitting
fire at the Saxons besieging Sigiburg, or modern men speculating the
Unidentified Flying Objects are of extra-terrestrial origin.
Now that astronomers blazon the
belief that life exists throughout the universe, speculation naturally
exists that spacemen could have landed on Earth in ages past.
Is there evidence?
For more than 2,000 years it was
recorded by nearly all the greatest intellects of Greece and Rome
although most of the records of antiquity have been destroyed, in the
surviving Classics there is ample evidence of UFO's and probable
Our theologians dismiss the
ancient Gods as anthropomorphisms of natural forces, as if entire races
for hundreds of years would base their daily lives on lightning and
thunderbolts. Yet logic suggests that the old Gods of Egypt, Greece,
Rome, Scandinavia and Mexico were not disembodied Spirits or
anthropomorphic symbolisms but actual spacemen from the skies. It seems
that after the great catastrophes remembered in legends. the "Gods"
withdrew and henceforth have been content merely to survey the Earth,
except for an occasional intervention in human affairs.
Apollodorus wrote, "Sky was the first who ruled
over the whole world," surely
signifying domination by space beings. The Roman Emperor Julian vowed,
"We must believe that on this world... certain Gods alighted."
Aristophanes, Plautus and Menander frequently introduced a "Deus ex
Machine" (a God from a Machine) to untangle the plots of their plays.
Aristotle, Plato, Pliny, Lucretius
and most other philosophers believed that the Gods were supermen living
in the realms above.
A century ago a German grocer
Heinrich Schliemann, using the Iliad as a guide, defied the ridicule of
the professors and dug up Troy. Can we dig up records of spaceships in
Following are some examples from
the works of ancient writers, scrutinized for UFO references:
B.C. 498 Visitations "... Castor and Pollux were seen
fighting in our army on horseback... Nor do we forget that when the
Locrians defeated the people of Crotona in a battle on the banks of the
river Sagra, it was known the same day at the Olympian Games. The
voices of the Fauns have been heard and deities have appeared in forms
so visible that they have compelled everyone who is not senseless or
hardened to impiety to confess the presence of the Gods." - Cicero, Of
the nature of the Gods, Book I, Ch. 2
B.C. 325: Visitations "There in the stillness of the
night both consuls are said to have been visited by the same
apparition, a man of greater than human stature, and more majestic, who
declared that the commander of one side and the army of the other must
be offered up to the Manes and to Mother Earth." - Livy, History, Book
VIII, Ch. 11

and during the night two moons were seen. Phantom ships appeared in the
sky." - Livy, History, Books XXI-XXII

B.C. 163 : An Extra Sun "In the consulship of Tiberius
Gracchus and Manius Juventus at Capua the sun was seen by night. At
Formice two suns were seen by day. The sky was afire. In Cephallenia a

windstorm demolished houses and laid crops flat in the field. By night
an apparent sun shone at Pisaurum." - Obsequens, Prodigiorum, Ch 114
B.C. 122: Three Suns, Three Moons "In Gaul three suns
and three moons were seen." - Obsequens, Prodigiorum, Ch. 114
B.C. 81: Gold Fireball "Near Spoletium a gold-colored

off the ground toward the east and was big enough to blot out the sun."
- Obsequens, Prodigiorum, Ch. 114
B.C. 85: Burning Shield, Sparks "In the consulship of
Lucius Valerius and Caius Marius a burning shield scattering sparks ran
across the sky. " - Pliny, Natural History, Book II, Ch. 34
B.C. 66: From Spark to Torch "In the consulship of
Gnaeus Octavius and Gaius Suetonius a spark was seen to fall from a
star and increase in size as it approached the earth. After becoming as
large as the moon it diffused a sort of cloudy daylight and then
returning to the sky changed into a torch. This is the only record of
its occurrence. It was seen by the proconsul Silenus and his suite. " -
Pliny, Natural History, Book II, Ch. 35
B.C. 48: Thunderbolts, Visitations "Thunderbolts had
fallen upon Pompey's camp. A fire had appeared in the air over Caesar's

Roman History, Book IV
B.C. 42: Night Light, Three Suns "In Rome light shone

day, which presently drew together in a single orb." - Obsequens,
Prodigiorum, Ch. 130
B.C.?: Suns, Moons, Globes "How often has our Senate
enjoined the decemvirs to consult the books of the Sibyl: For instance,
when two suns had been seen or when three moons had appeared and when
flames of fire were noticed in the sky; or on that other occasion when
the sun was beheld in the night, when noises were heard in the sky, and
the heaven itself seemed to burst open, and strange globes were
remarked in it." - Cicero, On Divination, Book I, Ch. 43
A.D. 70: Chariots in the Sky "On the 2lst of May a
demonic phantom of incredible size... For before sunset there appeared
in the air over the whole country chariots and armed troops coursing
through the clouds and surrounding the cities." - Josephus, Jewish War,
A.D. 193: Three New Stars "Three stars ... suddenly came
into view surrounding the sun, when Emperor Julianus in our presence
was offering the Sacrifice of Entrance in front of the Senate House.
These stars were so very distinct that the soldiers kept continually
looking at them and pointing them out to another . . . " - Dio Cassius,
Roman History, Book LXXIV
A.D. 217: Visitation "In Rome, moreover, a `Spirit'
having the appearance of a man led an ass up to the Capitol and
afterwards to the palace seeking its master as he claimed and stating
that Antoninus was dead and Jupiter was now Emperor. Upon being
arrested for this and sent by Matermainus to Antoninus he said, `I go
as you bid but I shall face not this emperor but another.' And when he
reached Capua he vanished. " - Dio Cassius, Roman History
The above references are only a
sampling of the evidence available. Consider just four writers: Julius
Obsequens recorded 63 celestial phenomena; Livy, 30; Pliny, 26; Dio
Cassius, 14; Cicero, 9.
Romans fervently believed that two
strange horsemen, taller than normal men, alike in age, height and
beauty, saved the day for Posthumus at Lake Regillus and, that same
day, miraculously appeared in the Forum, announced the victory, and
A contemporary historian described
two shiny shields spitting fire around the rims, diving repeatedly at
the columns of Alexander the Great in India, stamping horses and
elephants, and then returning to the sky.
When we recall that Romulus was
borne to heaven by a whirlwind while giving judgment on the Palatine
Hill, that his successor Numa Pomilius, used magic weapons, that Livy,
Pliny the Elder, and Julius Obsequens tell of mysterious voices,
celestial trumpets, men in white garments hovering in airships, several
suns and moons together, sudden new stars, and superhuman apparitions
descending among men and then vanishing, we suddenly feel we are
reading the wonders of the Bible.
By some strange twist of the human
mind, we worship prodigies in old Palestine as manifestations of the
Lord, yet scoff at identical phenomena occurring at the same time only
a few hundred miles away.
Evidence exists; all we need to do
is examine it.
