A word frequently translated as the grave is the Hebrew שְׁא֣וֹל – sheol, but sheol is far more than just the grave. The grave is a portal into the underworld realm of the dead.
The core isn't a "boring blob of iron" after all. Earth's "solid" inner core might actually be a bit mushy, researchers now find.
The core is losing heat faster under Indonesia than it is under Brazil, and that's messing with the seismic waves passing through it.
The levels of hell aren't what you think. However, they're what we would expect. The Hebrews had a well developed idea of life after death. For them physical death, the grave, was a portal into a complex underworld realm: sheol.
Here's a scary thought: if the beggar was carried by angels into Abraham's bosom, in a chamber in the lower mantle which overlooks hell, did other angels carry the rich man to the lip of the chamber and toss him into hell?
A common response to the human soul is that there isn't one because science can't detect it. However, we first detected gravitational waves in 2015. What else can't science detect? We don't know, science can't detect it.
Gravity isn't merely an implicit property of space-time as popular science (SciPop) has conveniently chosen to believe. That's merely an opportunistic rationalization of circumstantial evidence.
New research has uncovered a flaw in our understanding of the core — specifically, about the manner in which heat energy flows from the core and through the overlying mantle. The core is younger than the rest of the planet.
The deepest hole ever drilled is the Kola Super-deep Bore-hole at 12 km. That's less than 2% of the radius of the Earth. There are no direct observations of the Earth's interior, nothing empirical, it's entirely theoretical.
Let's do a thought experiment. Thoughts experiments have been used by physicists for many years as a way to visualize concepts. It's a way to design experiments that we can use to test our hypotheses.
