No, they would build a levy around the inside diameter of the hole to hold back the inner ocean.

So assuming they took into account the Coriolis effect and all the other confounding things mentioned, the results of this experiment still aren’t valid until it can be successfully reproduced.

Now, where’d I put my diggin’ shovel?

Maybe we’ll find Elvis and Jim Morrison in Earth’s hollow center! Plus all those ships and planes etc. that have disapeared in the Bermuda Triangle.

Heck, this might even explain why they have been unable to find a certain person from the Middle East they have been searching for.

I’ll bet it’s also where underwear gnomes come from, and store their booty.

Careful not to wake any balrogs.

Oh, and the final analysis seems to indicate air currents as the culprit.  And at least one early experiment can’t be verified as actually having occured.

All of you are completely misreading, not only the intention, but the results of the experiment as well. The result of the experiment (that the plumb bobs were wider at the bottom of the shaft than at the top) does not prove that there IS a hollow earth. If the experiment was conducted correctly, it would prove that we are IN a hollow earth.

In regard to your criticisms, if you’d bothered to check, precautions were taken to keep the plumbs from swinging by suspending the bobs in oil at the bottom of the shaft. As to your concern that it would be difficult to measure the distance between the plumb bobs at the bottom, again, if you’d bothered to check, you’d have found that there was a clear shaft BETWEEN them that allowed accurate measurements to be taken.

I live about half an hour from the Tamarack Mine and have visited it several times.

Why not just do the experiment with lasers and be done with it? It just seems like these plumb bobs are open to other forces or whatever. Of course I’m assuming the “original experiment” actually happened as was described.

As for us living in a hollow Earth that’s just too silly an idea.

looks to me like Chary woke a Balrog (or at least a necromancer with the screen name of LocalHero)
