In regard to creationists and creationist websites, perhaps a few humble words of wisdom from The Sensuous Curmudgeon might be of interest.
In a recent blog, dealing with a letter to the editor by a creationist, The Sensuous Curmudgeon concludes:
Geoffrey’s letter is a very good one. Why? Because it supports your Curmudgeon’s often-expressed opinion on the futility of debating or even talking to adult creationists. If someone is still a creationist when he’s past his student years, there’s no way to break through whatever it is that grips him. Although we hear occasional tales of successful de-programming efforts, those are extremely rare. The effort may seem worth the bother to you, but we think it’s an unproductive expenditure of time.
Re: Discussing hollow earth theory and other nonsense
But I guess you must have your reasons for coming in by numbers and jumping on someone who has an opinion that disagrees with common thinking.
My reason is that I am a Christian, raised as a Christian, educated in Christian schools and when someone makes utterly silly truly stupid claims and attributes them to the KJV Bible I of course take exception.
Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
Since I quit on the thread, there's not much of a talk going on between yourselves on the topic, going by the number of posts I thought you were really interested, Do you miss having someone to slap down? Or does your own science bore you?

Your comment is idiotic. There had been discussion on the thread before your first comment, but the discussion ended sometime last year.
You then posted some a new, fairly silly comment which drew some more discussion, and then the new discussion ended.
Is any of that history even the least bit surprising?
Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)
I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn't learn something from him. Galileo Galilei
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass
Jeremiah 31:37 (KJV)- Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done.
If I belonged to the seed of Israel, I should find this rather worrying.
Why can't the interior of the earth be discovered?
Firstly because according to the text given earlier, the security of God's people is dependent on the promise that if the interior of the earth can be discovered then the relationship is over. My bet is that God will not call His relationship off, so men will never uncover the foundations of the earth.
From what I have studied in ancient science, the interior of the earth does not consist of rocks and lava, even though those things occur in the crust of course. They seemed to know about something else - a type of antimatter you might say, which does away with the need for a rock interior, and can be just as strong if not stronger than materials as we know them.
I know it sounds bizarre. but there you go. But according to this if we dug down far enough, the end of the drills would disappear, without breaking or melting, just a clean mop-up of material by the force inside. Which is what has been happening.
At this depth, we also find that sound and earthquake waves are mysteriously accelerated, as if the waves have hit a very solid surface, even more solid than the crust, rather than a semi molten state. then below that strange layer called the MOHO, we have the waves behaving like the earth is molten. But it does not have to be anything inside, except what the Bible describes as the "waters." the very force mentioned in Genesis. Not literal water, but something that acts like it, heavy dark mobile. One of the forces used to create the universe.
Just to sound even more bizarre, this force called the waters, if you were able to get into it, you would be annihilated, and yet your energy spread out into practical infinity. That's why the ancients called it the shadow of death, or the underworld in the later religions. And still later religions called it hell, that's where the hell theory comes from - pagan teachings. But it is not true. Its just a way that God has made celestial bodies, like the planets and stars.
Now, science has trouble with sizes and related masses, and so in many cases have hollowed planets out to make sense of the gravitational laws. Say for instance, Saturn. They say that it is so light that it would float in water. That's how much they have had to hollow out this planet in theory. if not it would not stay in orbit.
