Pretty sure most earthquakes reach the sensors located around the world according to a nearly spherical Earth such that the magma and core inside it are recorded as areas that result in delay of arrival and reflecting/refracting of the original wave.

The hollow earth 'theory' isn't a theory at all. Just like Flat Earth, Young Earth and Expanding Earth aren't theories.

They're imagined idiocies spawned from what i can only assume is a brain chewed through by syphilis.

Nope. How would it get hollow in the first place?

If we propose that the Earth formed from raw elements orbiting a newly born star some 4-5 billion years ago that eventually clumped together by their own gravitational pull, there's no way there could be any space within.

"hollow earth theory"

if p-waves and s-waves didn't exist, this might work...oh, and the magnetic field...

I think it's a sound theory you should present your findings at the next major geological summit.

It has already been confirmed that Earth has a Tootsie Roll center.

think of lava as the blood of the earth, and nucleus as a hyper dense gravitational vortex of chaotic electromagnets, keeping the earth on a constant axis and disaxis and winter, summer, the whole bit

if we had a hollow earth, we would have no magnetic field.

as a result there would be no life on this planet.

earth is a spherical structure, comprised of carbon based materials

it's not even a sphere, it's a pear, and i mean there are carbon based materials on the earth, but there's also a crap ton that isn't carbon, like... water

how is earth a pear? seems more like a lumpy sphere.
all living things are made of carbon. some nonliving things are and some arent. how does the composition of earth prove weather or not its hollow.
in an infinite universe, anything is possible. i say, lets fund a diamond drill, and tunnel to the center! with luck, we will find precious stones/ fossils which will make up the money spent. sadly, my funds are limited to $20. anyone have several million dollars on them? i just estimated several million dollars, im not sure if it would be more.

earth's a geoid, pear shaped: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v246/n5428/abs/246086a0.html

there won't be any fossils below the crust; they'd be liquefied.

wow, i should call the globe company.

well, we would find ore and fossils/minerals in the crust. if that doesnt make up the money, wouldnt the money made by our discovery of the center of the earth? tabloids would be all over it.

If the Earth was hollow, we wouldn't have a Magnetic Field to protect us from the suns damaging rays. If the Earth was hollow the Earth wouldn't have enough gravity to keep a satellite that is 1/81 the mass of the earth in Orbit. If the Earth was hollow Gravity would crush the Earth into itself. If the Earth was hollow the Earth would have been destroyed by the Mars sized planetesimal that slammed into it creating the moon. If the Earth was hollow all of the Earths oceans and fresh water would seep into the Earth. If the Earth was hollow mankind would not exist. If the Earth was hollow single celled organism's would never have evolved into multi-celled organisms. Lastly, if the Earth was Hollow our orbit would be much more perturbed by the other planets around us, and we would slide in and out of our orbit and eventually tumble into the sun, getting back to the whole mankind never existing thing.

No, the Earth is not Hollow, it has a hot metallic core that is churning.

Also of note, the Earth is oblate spheroid shaped due to centripetal force of the rotation of the earth on its axis.
